Lydia & Jake
EMOTIONAL, PROFOUND, AND SEXY
So, word on the street is this is our last Danver's novel... Booo Hissssss... What am I gonna do with out the Danver girls and oh those sexier than sin Danver's men? I tell you what... I'm gonna wait patiently for a possible spin-off from this scrumptious series.
This book is much like it's predecessors only I feel it has a tinge more emotion than the others. We're dealing with a death, an impromptu m ...more
Not that it was too much of a problem. Wishing For Us might be what seems to be the last in a long (and seemingly fun) series, but as an introduction to the Danvers crew, it worked just fine. Admittedly, I felt a touch overwhelmed at times trying to make all the connections, but once I set that aside, what I was le ...more

This is a fun light romance that I couldn’t put down. I liked Lydia and Jacob immediately, not to mention the entertaining people around them. They had a screwed up beginning to their relationship, so it was fun watching them navigate around each other. I wanted to bop one of them upside the head a f...more
This was the first of this Danvers series that I have read- book nine, I know! But I really didn't have any issues not having read the previous books. Yes I found that all the people from the previous books needed to be sorted as such, I figured it out, and now I wish to read their stories a ...more
I really like how each book in the Danvers series can be read as a standalone, although it does make you crave the details of each of the characters individual stories when they are referenced within the narrative.
I am not going to go into details as to how and where we have been introduced to Lydia and Jacob previously as it would involve trying to untangle the web of interactions the series is based on; I will say that both Jacob and Lydia have an important place within the social group f ...more
okay her fantasies. Not that it's going to happen mind you, he usually doesn't even look her way. So how would he know that she wants him? Well....she wakes up in Vegas married to him of course. Wait...what? This isn't real! Is it?

The Danvers Series is a long time favorite of mine. Since Jason and Claire’s first story in Weekends Required I have been hooked. This crazy bunch of women have left me laughing, crying and emotional. I truly am sad but enjoyed reading this last Novel in the Danvers series.
Lydia and Jacob’s story comes together in Wishing for Us. Lydia has nothing in her live but the day to day bump and grind and her friends; so why does wake up in a Vegas hotel married ...more
Sydney Landon simply doesn't know how to write a bad book. Once again, in Wishing For Us, Landon penned a moving, captivating read. I didn't want to put the book down.
I adored Lydia and Jacob's slow but sizzling steps to love, but also thoroughly loved being immersed in the Danvers' world. One of my favorite spots came right at the end when I had the pleasure to glance at the amazing couples Landon had created. It feels like yesterday since I first read Weekends Required ...more
This is a bittersweet review. This is the final book in the Danvers series. This is Jake and Lydia. They were thrown together by u usual circumstances at least so they both thought. Unknown to each other they both harbored feelings. She knew more about her feelings then he did. He didn't know what he was feeling as he had never felt this before. Now throw in a baby mama with lots of drama and you are off. Will Jacob figure out what he wants before he looses it? Will Lydia be able ...more
This story is based on Lydia Cross and Jacob Hay and yet again, Sydney didn't disappoint me. At various times you will find yourself laughing and frustrated at the characters, but still loving the story/series. Please note all books are stand-alone, but for your reading enjoying, I would highly recommend you read them in order. Do yourself a massive favour and read this amazing series, you won't regr ...more
Lydia lost her fiancé to cancer and vows to never love again. Until waking up in a strange hotel room finding herself married to her crush Jacob.
Wishing For Us is full of fun, humor, love, an annoying baby mama, and the cutest 6 year old ever.
The writing is great and the story flowed seamlessly. Told in both Lydia and Jake's POV.
