Five magical stars
I loved this Snow White retelling. Loved how Cam and Brad came together, layer by layer lowering their guards and revealing their secrets until they eventually surrendered their hearts to one another. It was romantic and magical just like a fairy tale. A rose that blooms in adversity is still a rose, Cam. Blooming in harsh circumstances only makes it that much more beautiful, that much more worthy of admiration"

Thank you God that before I bought this book I bought a sample first.

It is not safe at all.
In chapter 2 (hero and heroine already met and have some feelings) we have a vivid scene of hero fucking other woman.

I was soooo blindsided.
Disgusting.

I really don't have luck these last few days

"Instead, I concentrated on the slippery slide of my cock in her wet heat. Even sheathed, I felt her rhythmic clenches. My spine tingled, and I gripped her hips harder. Finally, I was getting close. Yes, baby!

The Right Wish Is the perfect blend of what every girl dreams of and what every woman truly desires!

Mankin shows us just how tough life can be! Even those who have it all can lose their way but its what we choose in the face of adversity that truly defines us! Camero went from the type of life fairy tales are made of to feeling like she didnt deserve any kindness in life and yet in face of it all she still had the most beautiful heart and soul that anyone had ever seen! Her happiness came from

An Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) of this book was received free from the author. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

The Right Wish is the second book in a series which started with The Right Man. Writtenin alternating first person POV, we get to see into both Brad's and Camaro's heads. Unfortunately for me, I had not read that book before I

The second installment in this series, The Right Wish was even more emotional and impactful than its predecessor. Witnessing all Camaro is and how much she gives to others, it was more than a little moving to see Brad work at convincing her she was worthy of love...his love. *swoon*

I can't imagine having to live life as Cam had. Lying about who she was, living in shelters, selling her body... it was no wonder her self-esteem was in the gutter. And yet she was still so kind and

Michelle Mankin shares another stunning side of the music world in The Right Wish, the second book in the Once Upon a Rockstar series. Her world of music includes a look at not only the musicians and their families, but also the hanger on-ers, the groupies, and now we get to see the magic behind the machine, the managers. In this case, the workaholic Bradley Marshall, manager to Rush McMahon who we met in The Right Man.

I have to say I was a bit skeptical of Brad Marshall. But I love that he won

The Right Wish is all kinds of swoony goodness. I'm truly loving this 'softer' side of Michelle Mankin, in which she delivers the kind of love story that has a subtle kind of angst paired with that meant to be kind of feeling.

We got more than a glimpse of Camaro and Bradley from the first book in this series, The Right Man, and these two secondary characters certainly get their time in the sun this time around. You can tell right from the start that despite their seemingly cantankerous dialogues

If Michelle Mankin's new standalone in her Once Upon a Rockstar series is a modern retelling of Snow White, then she has written a beautiful and steamy adult version of it here with The Right Wish but with no sign of Doc or Sneezy and definitely not Sleepy!

Some well loved characters from the previous book, The Right Man, play a huge part in this new release and their story continues. Rush and Jewel's best friends are often thrown together by proximity and you may have already met them

I love this story. This is Camaro ( Juliet's best friend) and Brad's ( Rush's best friend and manager) story. We meet these two in The Right Man. Camaro is like Snow White she once was like a princess until a manipulating step mother Cam finds herself doing what she has to, to survive. Brad has always had feelings for Cam but he kept her at a distance because he was in a relationship. Now single he comes up with a plan to help Cam and to show her how much he wants her. This was such a sweet,

The Right Wish by Michelle Mankin is undoubtedly a 5+ stars read. I simply couldn't put it down! I've read several books by Michelle & must admit that a couple didn't hold my interest. But The Right Wish offers a fascinating glimpse into a world that is both fulfilling & limiting for Brad & absolutely soul-destroying for Cam. He is a Manager for Rock Groups & she's the best-fried from the first book in the series. They are chalk & cheese! Or are they? She's a dreamer, kind, ...more

The Right Wish by Michelle Mankin is absolutely stunning. A beautifully written modern-day fairy tale that held my heart in its clutches from beginning to end--I couldn't put it down and was up late into the night reading this one in one sitting. I have not read the previous book in the series, The Right Man, but had no trouble following the story making, it truly a standalone story--although truthfully, I am now absolutely dying to read Rush and Jewel's book because of how much I loved The ...more

The Right Wish took me on a magical journey like witnessing a shooting star on a clear night. Brad and Cam have a majestic chemistry that serenaded my heart. Their past at times broke me, their present had me anxious, hopeful and lost in the music from their souls but best of all was the future I was dreaming of for these two characters. Two people drawn to each other by the words, the rhythm and the connection. This modern day fairytale had my eyes filling with tears as Cam and Brad allowed the ...more

This modern day re-telling of Snow White was every bit as emotional and romantic as you would expect from a fairytale romance. Brad is a music producer and from the outside, appears to have the perfect life. Lots of money, good looking, extremely successful, beautiful girlfriend. However, there is something missing in his life and it's not until he meets the enchanting Camaro that he realises what that something is.. her!

Camaro really embodies the Snow traits, beautiful on the inside and yet

Fairytales Do Come True!!

If you are looking for a HEA done with a hint of rock romance and plenty of steam that can break your heart one minute and then leave you with the biggest smile this is definitely a book for you. Brad was a business manager for rock stars and was hiding a deep secret that he kept locked away in a room. Camaro was a sweet charming one-time hooker trying to make it the best she could. Her best friend and confidant Jewel was married to Brads best friend and rock star Rush.

If you love a modern day Snow White story with a rockstar twist, then youre going to love Michelle Mankins, The Right Wish! This book has all the feels and takes you through a myriad of emotions, as we follow the story of Camaro and Bradley. I found myself gasping out loud, crying, smiling ear to ear, and laughing throughout the story.

Both Camaro and Bradley have given up on their dreams due to unfortunate circumstances that were out of their control. But as they are grudgingly thrown together,

Cam has been through a lot in her life, but continues to be loving and giving person, except to herself. She never feels worthy of love nor is she able to accept from another. Story telling is a gift of hers able to elevate anyone who is down and loves to help anyone who needs it.
Brad is always bossy and in control of things, all things. Dont be fooled, Brad has given up plenty to those he loves. He has a great business mind but that is not all he is great at.
Both Cam and Brad have a way of

OMG how I loved this book! Bradley in the first book, welllllll I kinda thought he was an ahole. I got that he was protecting Rush, but geez! Give the girls a break dude! lol. He did grown on me in The Right Wish, once I saw what was underneath. And Camaro, oh man. I felt soooo sorry for her. She was completely a fairy tale character. Great mom dies. Dad loses himself to his own pain. Throw her out into the big bad world, yeah. Not the best idea. I completely identified with her. She's all of us ...more

This story made me go through all sorts of emotions...from happy, sad, irate, to bawling, then back to ecstatic! All of the emotions are covered while reading this book. At first I didnt really like Brad...he was such a jerk at first but he quickly won me over. Cam was so utterly broken in this book that she couldnt see what was right in front of her...she made a mistake but an understandable one, one that Brad didnt hold a grudge on her for.

My only complaint...which isnt really a

The Right Wish can be read as a standalone but it's connected to the characters Rush and Jewel from the first book The Right Man. This is about Camaro and Bradley's story and it's an amazing retelling of Snow White story, Bradley is the band manager, and Camaro is a sweet, beautiful woman with secrets of her own. Despite trying to keep them in her past, they come back. This story started in the most wonderful way, it's fantastic. You will find yourself falling in love with the characters, get ...more

Mankin knocked this one out of the park with a great story that still connects with Black Cat Records rock stars without it being a rockstar romance. Camero, the heroine of the story, finds herself in a Cinderella situation, when she finds a Prince Charming of a guy, in a domineering kind of way. These two tiptoe around the situation they are in until they figure out how to overcome both their issues. Hers are much more severe than his but his are equally frustrating.

Beautiful! A real fairytale. Even though this book is the second book in the series, and I have not read the first one, there was no trouble with any confusion. I felt like the author gave the needed information to understand and enjoy this book as a standalone. I loved Brad and Cam together. There was a strong attraction between them, but there was also a little snarkiness and playful banter between them that made it fun, amongst a very serious storyline. I thought it was outstanding writing ...more

Characters Camaro who thought couldnt be love and needed to find her strength on her own.,and Bradley who a straight shooter, hard worker but needed to find his muse back for the music he keeps hidden.
As the two become friends there love becomes powerful as there past tries to tear them apart.

Really liked this one. Its a rough start for Brad and Cam, but a very satisfying ending. I love how these two go through the slow burn of revealing themselves and their feelings one layer at a time. Brad makes Cam feel safer than she has in a long time after suffering trauma. But, thats doesnt mean shes passive in the relationship. I especially liked how Cam really forces Brad to look at his life and go after his passion rather than sticking to his safe path. They are so good for each other. And ...more

This is the second book in the Once Upon a Rockstar series. I finished reading and think it is an amazing book. You will be surprised by Camaros past after reading the first book in the series, The Right Man and you will fall in love with Camaro and Brad as a couple. They have personal issues to overcome however their chemistry is off the chart, so get ready for some great steamy scenes. The humour between them is also lots of fun. I was happy that Jewel and Cams magical friendship continues and ...more

You have to give an author their props when they write something so deep and classic with perfection.

Cam and Brad journey to finding their happiness and complete self was awe-inspiring. From the tension to the support I didn't know my heart could get any bigger. From the doubt to to giving, the protection to the empathy, from the love to the wanting. The characters were selfless from beginning to end. Cam gave her all to serve and protect everyone and Brad gave his all to ensure security for

Cam & Brad... dreamy sigh. I fell in love with Cams spirit. She was forced to do things that I shudder to think of in order to survive. Put there because she trusted the wrong men who she thought loved her. We met her alongside Jewel previously. She came from a fairy tale life and fell to lowest low... but never lost her love of doing things for others. Her mothers wish... Brad left me spinning. He had such a heart. The only match I couldve ever put with Cam. Her was instantly drawn to her ...more

I love everything about this series. This book had it all for me. Rockstars, fairy tales and a happily ever after. This modern day re-telling of Snow White was wonderful. This story we met Rush and Jewel's best friends Brad and Camaro. These two were fun to go on a journey with. Their chemistry is off the charts, but like any good book they both have issues that they have to work through that allows them to reach their happily ever after.

Michelle Mankin never fails to write a great rock star story. Once Upon a Rock Star series is so good! I cant wait for the next book.

It also sends a wonderful message: There, but for the grace of God. There are many homeless, who not of their own volition are forced to do many things that they would not do if the circumstances were different. There are good people in this world that look past superficial appearances and into the heart of the person.

Great characters. Great plot. I would highly
