Be careful what you wish for...

Normally, Aspen Edwards will do anything for her free-spirited best friend, Mischa, but this feels like a bit much. The plan is simple, all Aspen has to do is write down a few affirmations and recite them during the New Moon. But as skeptical as Aspen is, a promise is a promise. So, she whispers each wish to the universe, pondering the possib

I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars! It totally deserves more! It's been a long time since a book had me laughing from the very first chapter to the very last. I was on chapter 4 when I was on the treadmill reading this and while I was taking a sip of water I laughed spitting the water out and nearly falling off the treadmill. I loved the way this story played out and brought humor to a lot of crappy circumstances Aspen goes through. I don't want to post any spoilers so I will just ...more

4 Wishful Sighs!
Review by Jen Hagen

I didn’t know what to expect when I first started this book. I have read Jennifer’s previous works and while one inserted a small amount of humor along with drama, the second was all drama and angst. She is a talented author that can turn around a write a complete romantic comedy. I was laughing so hard I was shaking the couch and the kids were telling me to stop reading because I was annoying them. No way was I going to stop at that certain part which involve

Once again the very talented Jennifer Miller has written an amazing book. I could totally relate with Aspen's character. Everything she did went wrong. She felt everyone was against her. She still had her best friend Mischa. Loved her and Wes together. This book made me laugh out loud. Bravo Jennifer!!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story of Aspen and Wes. I honestly thought the beginning of the story was slow and it took me time to connect to the characters. Overall this was a good book.

So I sit down to start Whispering Wishes and I wish someone had told me : DO NOT DRINK OR EAT ANYTHING WHILE READING THIS BOOK. Seriously I laughed so hard throughout this book I spit my tea all over my ipad mini. Jennifer Miller has taken Romcom to a whole new level with this one.

Aspen is a beautiful and intelligent woman. She has a steady job, a home and great friends. But she just isn’t fulfilled. There is so much more she wants out of life. This is when her

I've never come across a book that has made me laugh on the first page. This book does just that! I absolutely love Aspen's personality throughout this whole book. Her reactions to things happening around her is just absolutely hilarious. Her interaction with Wes is also rather cute as well. I loved the way it ended and was very sad when it was over! Great work, Jennifer! I will never look at sex toys the same way again!

Aspen is so fun!!! She's just one of those characters you don't want to put away when the book is done!! Wes is seriously hot and adorable at the same time. Aspen's (mid)adventures throughout this book left my stomach sore from laughing. I just loved following her on her journey. This is definitely going back into the re-read pile because I was sad to see it end!!!

I laughed so hard while reading this book - there were just some outrageously funny moments that I can't believe would actually happen to someone! And seriously.....I felt so bad for Aspen, as one thing after another kept going wrong for her. The scene at the bank - awesome! What person hasn't thought about going off like that at work? I know I do! Ultimately all those bad things that happened led her to Wes, and I love them together. Yes, at times they were being a little ridiculous.....but it ...more

This book was such a fun read!!

This book was such a fun read! Aspen has had a run of bad luck and things seem to only get worse! The situations Aspen finds herself in are funny, yet you so want her to find what she’s looking for, true love!! Jennifer Miller has written original, quirky and lovable characters that you will laugh with and cheer for and relate too!

Wish there was a number higher than 5 to give this book! I feel like this was my story. If it can go wrong it did. Ms. Miller has the ability to write a story that you get wrapped up in and feel a part of. I read this straight through, I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN!!! You will love this book and thank me for it in the long run

I LOVED this book! This is the first book I have read of Jennifers The main character Aspen is absolutely hilarious but also really likeable and sweet. There is a really good group of supporting characters. I was actually laughing out loud on parts and was tearful at others. Hopefully this will be made into a series.

Funny and romantic!

This book is hilarious, so many laugh out loud moments. Sweet and romantic as well. What Aspen thinks is the universe turning on her, is all actually leading her right to where she belongs. In Wes's arms and life.

Great romance story about how two people write lists of things they want in their lives and realize in the end they were made for each other. There was doubt from the beginning about how the process worked, but in the end, it worked out perfect.

I love this author and in this strange times it was good to laugh.

Aspen is a good character-if something will go wrong it will for her. But her best friend Mischa kept her going. Lovely book

Please seek this author out she is fab.

This book was hilarious! I found myself laughing throughout the whole book. I loved Mischa and how quirky she was. I would love to read a book about her.

What I love about Jennifer's heroines is that they are always so relate-able. They're not perfect, funny things happen to them and they always get the hot guy. In Whispering Wishes we meet Aspen and she has horrible luck. Haven't we all had one of those days that everything just seems to go wrong and you find yourself shaking your fist and screaming "why me?" at the bad luck fairy? No? Just me? If I had been Aspen, I think I would have hunted down that damn bad luck fairy and taken her down! Asp ...more

Absolutely hilarious! This was a quick, fun romance read that I was literally laughing through the entire time! No joke, like full on laughing, I even had tears in my eyes at one point.

Our heroine, Aspen, starts our journey off by making a list of wishes and sending them out into the universe. But, instead of wishes coming true, she instead experiences a series of, what can only be described as, bad luck. She loses her job, her house, her car breaks down, etc.

It's not until she meets our hero,

Thank you Jennifer Miller for this masterpiece, I've been in a book slump for a while now and can't remember the last time I gave a 5 star rating, this one deserves more stars!!!!
Wow I loved this book, I've read this authors Deadly Sins series (hot MMA fighters) and loved those also but I think this book was fantastic! I love that Aspen was so relate-able as we all can understand wanting to hunt down the bad luck fairy a time or two throughout life :-) Her bad luck wasn't over the top at all and

Aspen Edwards was a normal person, being far away from home, she found a sister in her best friend free-spirited Mischa. After so many years of trying to make Aspen do a wishing list, Mischa finally convinced her to do it. Aspen being the non-believer she did it anyways, hoping that everything on the list would come true.

After she did the ritual Aspen felt good, until a series of bad luck happens to her. When she meets Mischa for drinks one afternoon, the last thing she imagines is to meet Wes,

OMG I didn't think Jennifer Miller could make me love her writing any more than I already did but she proved me SO WRONG!!! I stumbled upon her books last year and I fell in love. I wasn't sure I was going to like this book as much as her previous books but I do. This book is so funny and sweet. You will love and certainly identify with Aspen. I think we have all tried different things to get what we want out of life and it includes some off the wall ideas. Aspen listens to her BFF and whispers

I have to say that Whispering wishes is the first book that I have read by Author Jennifer Miller, but it will certainly not be the last. Jennifer’s book sucked me in from the very beginning and left me not wanting to put it down at the very end. I can’t remember the last time I read a book and actually laughed so much. And I am not talking just a few laughs here and there I am talking something that kept me either smiling or laughing throughout the whole thing.

Jan 19, 2014 rated it it was amazing
A fun and lighthearted romantic comedy. Aspen is an incredibly sweet, intelligent and beautiful woman who is so focused on her life as it is, she forgets to step back and look at the bigger picture. Her best friend Mischa is a freespirited, cosmically open to the world metaphysical shop owner who is usually trying to help Aspen "open up"! Enter a new moon ritual, some whispered wishes sent out into the universe then let the chaos insue. What was supposed to change her life for the better, begins ...more

I loved this book. I love reading Jennifer's books so knew I wouldn't be disappointed with this. what an absolutely funny and heart-warming read this book is. It had me feeling every ounce of Aspen' s frustration with the universe and her job. I laughed so hard tears were falling down my face, some of the things and situations she got herself into were beyond hilarious. Aspen is my kind of girl with the same dry sense of humour, with a hint of sarcasm, as myself and I was really rooting for her, ...more

This book was such a fun read; I really connected with Aspen almost from the start. Within a short few days her safe, but boring life spirals out of control. She struggles to make sense of the tricks the universe seems to be playing on her and bemoans her string of exceptionally bad luck.

Aspen, however, is a plucky girl, and as she fights to regain some semblance of order, her best friend Mischa suggests something that seems outrageous at first. With its breezy style, fast pace, delightful dialo

My first thoughts into this book are if this whole book could have the same vibe as the conversation between Aspen and Mischa right when Aspen sees Wes for the first time, it would be fantastic! I laughed so hard I had tears at times while reading this book. It did seem to take a long time for Wes and Aspen to actually admit their attraction to each other. I am over the top in love with this book!! The ending is perfect. I had never even heard of this author until I found this book and decided t ...more

OMG this book is hilarious, sweet & hot. Aspen is such a fun character & the poor thing has to deal with so much, not going to lie it is pretty entertaining. Wes is hot, nice, sweet, thoughtful etc. I love that he is a nice guy not an a-hole (well most of the time, lol). I adore Aspen & Wes together, but I wanted to shake them sometimes because they were being so immature. As adorable as the two of them are they are also pretty hot, there are definitely some scenes where you will be fanning your ...more
