The Wish Maker (The Billionaires of Silicon Forest, #2) by: Melissa McClone  
Every now and then we all need a helping hand. With The Wish Maker, McClone spreads a hint of holiday cheer while delivering some sage advice. Wes and Paige were brought together by need and gave each other the courage to hope. Against the odds, love found a miracle. McClone inspires hearts with an emotionally charged hymn of hope.

Wes had been thought of as ruthless, heartless and much worse before he found he had Lymphoma. The fight for his life was difficult and now that he is in remission he doesn't have that same drive. If he dies he wants to be remembered in a far different light.

Henry his ever interfering friend pushes him to do something a bit different this Christmas season. Instead of just signing checks, go see where the money goes.

Paige was his oncologist, and he credits her with saving his life even though it

Third-person POV

Paige was a member of Wes's oncology team for two years ago but now, in remission, he's given a second lease on life and plans to right some of the wrongs he's done before he fell ill. He works behind the scenes to provide less privileged individuals or organizations the chance that they need to succeed. It's not until a long-time friend, Henry, asks him for a favor that he realizes he's been approaching the "righting wrongs" thing all wrong!
Paige never imagines that telling the

The Wish Maker is book 2 in the The Billionaires of Silicon Forest; after reading The Wife Finder I was hooked, leaving me hanging for Wes’s story.

Wes had been to hell and back, the big C; Cancer. Now in remission everything made him worry so really had he left hell at all? When his friend pushing him to get out and be part of the Christmas spirit he reluctantly does and who would have thought that a woman that saw him at his weakest would make him stronger.

I enjoyed The Wish Maker. It is written with a good flow to the story and is easy to read. I was engrossed the entire story. It has humor, dedication, friendship, Christmas magic, and a sweet romance. I was rooting for the main couple and liked how the author paced their relationship, showed their faults, and how they worked through them. One thing that really stood out for me was the couple’s first kiss. I’ve read a lot of romance books, so a lot of first kisses, but this one was written really ...more

Take every Christmas movie you have ever watched, add in some magic and ramp it up times ten and you have the beauty that is The Wish Maker! This book will have your heart ready to burst from joy and leaving you floating on a snowing cloud of happiness. I swear I could practically feel Christmas magic floating in the air while I was reading Wes and Paige’s story.
Obviously these two are sugary sweet, but despite the chemistry that is between them they have a nice slow burn happening. You could li
The Wish Maker is a clean, sizzling Christmas romance. Trust me, some of those kisses are swoon worthy. Both main characters are likable and well-developed, but have areas in their lives that need to change. This author tells a great story as she gets the characters where they need to be. I loved the banter and close friendship between Wes and his billionaire buddies. I enjoy Melissa McClone's smooth, flowing writing style. I recommend this book and am looking forward to reading the next one in ...more

The Wish Maker is another awesome book. Reading about Wes who had cancer and is now in remission and Paige, his cancer doctor, filled your heart with love and admiration. Wes loved helping others financially. He saw Paige at a Christmas party and their Christmas magic began to happen. Paige's dream was to open a cancer center. Was this just a daydream or could it really happen. Do you think Wes can have an influence on this becoming a reality. Sometimes you just have to listen to your heart. I h ...more

This is my first time reading this author but I really loved the story and all the characters so I will go and read some more of her stories!
This story is so Christmassy and so sweet!
Paige and Wes met before, as doc and patient, but now they can see each other in a new light..
I love the group of friends, I love the charming little town and I love all the Christmassy stuff..I love Christmas time ;)
The characters are all great and there isn't much drama, which I love.

Wonderful!! I have loved every book in this series but I think Wes and Paige’s story is my favorite. This is a story of hope and new beginnings! Wes’ past history and struggles broke my heart and Paige was exactly what he needed. This is a sweet, romantic and beautifully told romance that lifted my heart. It was just what I needed to get in the Christmas spirit.

The Wish Maker is the second story in The Billionaires of Silicon Forest series by Melissa McClone, and I’m having such an amazing time with these believable, likable, realistic characters. Sure the guys are billionaires but they are such a crew of brothers of the heart that their wealth is secondary to their personalities – most of the time.

OMG Melissa has done it again. I am so in love with Wes and Paiges story. As a cancer survivor myself I understand where he comes from.

He is rich, good looking and a survivor. He broke up with his girlfriend when he had cancer although he let all of his friends think that she broke up with him. Henry comes to his office and wants him to play Santa for the children at the hospital. Wes doesn’t want too. After thinking it over he decides to do it.

I really liked and admired Wes and Paige, and their story held my interest. Full of Christmas detail and charm and spirit, this story is a great, clean and sweet holiday read. I loved the intelligent conversation and wit and warmth whenever the couple was together or when they were with Wes’s band of friends. The friends, especially Henry and Dash, were a great group of secondary characters with a running storyline that makes the series extra interesting. I definitely look forward to Wes’s story ...more

Wes changed his life after he was diagnosed with cancer and has become more sympathetic and philanthropic, but he still worries now that he’s in remission about the cancer coming back and that causes him to guard his heart. Paige realizes that working as an oncologist life is passing her by and her dreams of a home with a husband and family are not being realized.

Beautifully written romance is something I’ve come to expect from Melissa McClone, but The Wish Maker was extra enchanting to me. I’m not sure if it was the Christmas setting, or just the sweet chemistry between Wes and Paige, but this story lightened my heart during a season that gets harder for me to celebrate each year.
Wes has been given the gift of a second chance at life, which he shares with others, while still keeping himself apart. Paige gives her all to her patients and little to hersel

This is book two in a series. These are stand alones but there are reoccurring characters of billionaire friends.
Focus on this book is Wes. He has recently beaten cancer but has realized his second chance at life. Yet he also has fears of truly living.
When forced back out to society to play Santa at the hospital he is reunited with his oncologist Dr. Paige. She tells Santa of her 25 million dollar wish for her cancer center and also a wish for the family with the pets and white picket fence.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review

This is Wes’s story, and it is another good one. Wes is in remission after undergoing cancer treatment, but he really isn’t “living”. He’s trapped with regret from his past and desperately trying to be a better person but doesn’t feel that he deserves to be happy. Paige was his oncologist but Wes is definitely looking at her as more than just his doctor as her love of the Christmas season rubs off on him. Both deserve to be happy but with one t

Wes is changing his life now he’s in remission. He now wants to help people and who better to help than his doctor. But becoming friends is the only thing what can happen, nothing more. Or can they with the help of his friends find the way to a happy future?
I really loved this book, it has lovely characters, main and side, and a couple of life lessons. Can’t wait to read the next in the series.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Does your doctor really care or is it just a job?
When Wes hears the dreaded word from his doctor, will things become hopeless or will he ‘man-up’ and face it?
What do you do when your life is changed so drastically that it’s hard to comprehend? Is it love for your caregiver/doctor because of the ‘cure’ or is it the real thing? Do you help others if you can afford to do so or do you move on as if nothing has happened?
Another inspirational book by Melissa McClone. Well done, Melissa!

I loved this book I wasn't familiar with this author so I didn't really know what to expect. I loved the story and the descriptions for the story were very good. I love Christmas stories with happy endings so this one didn't disappoint. I want to follow through on the series so I will have to find the first one.

Wes and Paige seem so compatible every girls dream after the initial problems.

I just didn't want to put the book down so I would definitely recommend.
