5 star I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, pain, grief and heartbreak.  If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first Broken Fences (TroubleMaker, #1) Favorite Places (TroubleMaker, #2) Lucky Numbers (TroubleMaker, #3) Finder Fees (TroubleMaker, #4) Fallon is lost and totally broken.  Since he lost his wife all he can think about is revenge on the one person who took her away from him.  He just goes thought the motions of living until that day.  Katie needs something from Fallon for her boss.  She gets trapped on his boat.  She thinks he is a jerk and has no problem telling him that.  She also wants him bad.  They are good for each other but also so bad.  Fallon promised his wife before he lost her he would grant her three wishes.  He is about to grant them but at what cost to himself?  What is everything you believed you knew was not the truth but the truth was that much worst?  Could you heal from that pain?  Could someone heal all you past pain and allow you to complete your wishes? I loved these characters and also the side characters. There are some tear filled moments and some anger filled moments in this story. But all in all I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.  I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next book in this great series!!

WOW!!!  I knew when I had actual tears as of being 2% in that I was in for a ride.  I actually read those pages again just to make sure I was clear on what was happening.  The story begins at the death of Fallon's wife Hope, who it is painfully obvious he loves more than anything is the world.  In just a couple pages Kelly Gendron conveys to us just how deeply her death cut him.   On her death bed Hope asks for three wishes from Fallon and asks that he please grant them all after she's gone.  She wanted him to be happy, move on, and find someone to love.  Make sure you have tissues handy during this part.  Fallon admits honestly to her that he doesn't think he can do that.   And he doesn't even try to do any of those things.  He fills his life with empty sex in order to feel anything at all.  The rest of the time he's numb.  Until Katie comes along and changes everything.  She makes him actually feel something other than the empty despair he's grown accustomed to. This is the story of Fallon and Katie and the obstacles that stand in their way because of Fallon's loss of Hope.  Katie has to rescue him from himself but he doesn't make it easy.   This book was so intense.  Kelly does a fantastic job of developing the characters and letting us see down into the dark depths of Fallon's soul.  His self hatred and fear of moving forward are painfully palpable.  Katie's refusal to give up on him and to love him despite of his faults are a true example of unconditional love that will move you.   This is the second book I've read by Kelly Gendron and it only makes me crave more.

Katie loved Fallon, but he had lost so much and experienced so much despair, grief, guilt, and death she was unsure if he could return her love. All of these emotions literally jump off the page with this author. Really great story with incredible characters. Add love, mistrust, angst, and some very steamy scenes and you have a truly a wonderful read. I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

4 stars This was my first book by Author Kelly Gendron, even thought it was book 5 in the TroubleMaker series, it can be read as a standalone.  This was a story of forgiveness, love, trust and learning to let go of the past.  The characters interaction made the story flow well.   Fallow O’Conner has been living his life more or less by himself since the day he lost everything.  He turned his back on his family and friends.  You see there was nothing left for him without his wife.  She was his everything.  He knew he would never love again.  He was just buying his time with all these women until the day he could get his revenge of the person that killed his wife.  He was not ready for Katie Rustle.  She might have started out as the stowaway on his boat but she will be so much more to Fallow than he is ready to admit. Katie Rustle knows that she is just the person to get this job done for her boss.  She knows all too well how to handle a man that has lost something in his life and shut others out.  Her own father was never truly a father but reminded her daily as she was growing up that she was the reason her mother was not here.  As Kate tries to do her job, she finds herself stranded on Fallow’s boat with him, headed to an island for the weekend.  But she will make the most of it and get the job done. The island holds lots of answers to Fallow and how he has been living.  But having Katie round, makes Fallow feel again.  Something that he hasn’t since his wife died.  Katie and Fallow fight this attraction to each other.  They continue to banner back and forth to only future the attraction.  Katie does not just take things.  No sir, she has a fire in her to show Fallow that she means business.  Fallow rather enjoys this. As Fallow’s day of revenge nears, there will be secrets revealed that will change his course of action.  How can this be?  What has happen with his memory of the past?  Will Katie be able to help Fallow find himself or will he be lost again?  Can Fallow honor his wife’s wishes?

Rating 4.5 Stars What makes this novel great? The elusive Fallon is finally having his happy ending. After a very long time suffering in loneliness and grief, someone got into his comfort zone, and it had caught him off guard. He didn’t like the feeling at first, it was disturbing. Fallon had loved and experienced an intense sense of loss. He lost the love of his life so suddenly that it broke his heart and shattered it into pieces. He wanted nothing but to take revenge. Wait for the perfect moment to get back to the person who have caused him so much pain. Then Katie Rustle came into his life and threw it into a curve-ball. Her boss needed something, and Fallon had it. She was the only person who was capable to get it. What she didn’t expect was to be trapped in the boat with Fallon and see the other side of him that made her want him more… Then there’s Twigs, she’s adorable, and she keeps Fallon on his toes. She had welcomed Katie with open arms and she’s the person who will make sure Fallon will keep his wife’s three wishes. I didn’t see the twist coming along there. It was painful to hear, but I think it helped Fallon forgive and move on. It was a harsh truth, but reality bites, and he just needed to finally accept it and move on with his life. Kelly Gendron had made one hot, romantic read about finding another great love after you thought you have found and lost it, forgiveness and friendship. It’s one heck of a read and I finished it in one sitting!

4.5 Steamy and emotional laden stars Favorite Quotes: “I just want him so much, really want him, about to drop to my knees and beg want him.  I’m pathetic.  God, I hope it’s not that transparent.” “I see that he’s dead serious, and part of me should be insulted, ashamed that I’m about to give myself to a man who only wants my body for one night, but I’m not.  How I need him, it goes beyond any reasoning.” “I’m going to strip you of your control, and you’re going to feel vulnerable.  So, I want you to have something of mine clinging to your defenseless body, making you feel protected, but still reminding you that right now you belong to me.” “…if I wasn’t broken inside, I could give you everything you need, all that your little heart desires,”  “I like holding you like this, listening to music, feeling your body swaying with mine.  Let it be just you and me for a moment, okay?” “He’s the kind of man that when you finally fall, you’re down for good, and there’s no getting back up.  Your heart belongs to him forever.” My Review: Lost Wishes is my third time reading a Kelly Gendron Troublemaker, and it was the heaviest one of the three by far.  This was a melancholy and emotionally laden story from word one, although there were also steamy sensual scenes and sweet remembrances interspersed.  I had remembered Fallon’s character from Lucky Numbers and had remained curious about his story.    Kelly Gendron’s writing is always smart, nuanced, and multi-layered, and this story was also cryptic at times.  I knew there were important and tantalizing details that were being held back and slowly exposed.  The plot was rather sweet when you remove the grief aspect, and I enjoyed the peeling of the onion layer by layer.  Ms. Gendron’s characters are always complicated, smart, and a bit rough around the edges, yet always likable and redeemable.  I sound like such a total fan-girl – maybe because I am a total Troublemaker fan-girl.  I will always ready for her next adventure and will be forever curious and eager to see who the bad-boy will be.

Lost Wishes by Kelly Gendron Kelly is great. I am always excited to get hold of something new from her. Kelly’s use of words makes every story she tells come to life. Her descriptions are so vivid they paint pictures true to life.  Lost Wishes is the story of Fallon O’Conner and Katie Rustle.  Fallon has hidden away from the world waiting …to get revenge. And like the saying revenge being best served cold, he has been waiting in limbo. Waiting for the time comes to enact it. Then Katie shows up.  Katie just has a job to do. Little does she know the job wont be as easy as she thought. And it just gets harder once she actually meets Fallon.  Sparks have nothing on the heat between these two. The twist will make the hair on your neck stand on end for days.  I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

WOW! I was introduced to Fallon in Lucky Numbers and from that story I knew he had suffered great loss but I had no idea the depth of his loss and how it truly derailed his life. Katie is sent to find Fallon and get a deed for a family property from him. When she climbs on Fallon's boat while he is out, she never expects to become a stowaway. I loved Katie's spunk, determination and pure guts to get the job done. She has overcome a horrible childhood and found a way to make something of herself and find security she never really expected. Katie doesn't really know what to make of Fallon but when they end up stuck with each other for a few days, well, the sparks fly and  the games begin. Will Fallon allow himself to love again? Can he move on from his tragic past? Oh, I forgot to mention Twigs, she steals the show is just a wonderful ray of sunshine in the dark world Fallon has immersed himself within. Love how she shows us hope for Fallon's redemption.
