A modern-day retelling of Snow White by New York Times bestselling author Michelle Mankin.
Once upon a time with a beautiful hooker who used to be a princess, and a handsome manager for rock stars who is more than he seems.
She’s kind and fanciful. He’s bossy and straightforward. She has nothing and feels like her life has no value. He has a reliable well-paying job that ke

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.

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!”

It was a sweet and enjoyable read.
I wish I knew that there was another book prior to this one, so I could have had a more clear picture of the characters’ background.

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"

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

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 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 givin

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

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 it’s 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 didn’t 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 fro
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, caring & determined t ...more

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 Brad’s best friend and rock star Rush.

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

I loved Cam and Brads story! They were both hiding things but Brads issues were marring his present where he would not give into things that made him happy. I adored Cam but felt bad for how she viewed herself and what she thought she deserved, I just wanted to shake her and wanted to shake him for not giving into what he wanted, Cam!

*I received a free copy of The Right Wish. This has in no way influenced my voluntary review which is honest and unbiased.*

There were a lot of dreamy moments in The Right Wish, and I truly enjoyed getting to know Brad and Cam! I already loved Jewel and Rush from the other book in this series, and they were present for quite a bit of the story here as well.

Armani on a sexy rockstar! Brad is the manager of several rock bands. Cam was a hooked with a secret past. When opposites attract the best level rises. You should never judge a book by its cover the true story inside might just be a fairytale come true. I love every book by this amazing author. I mean who doesn't like sexy rockstars with strong females in their lives. ...more

Cam & Brad... dreamy sigh. I fell in love with Cam’s 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 mother’s wish... Brad left me spinning. He had such a heart. The only match I could’ve ever put with Cam. Her was instantly drawn to her an ...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.
I loved this story, as wit

Really liked this one. It’s 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, that’s doesn’t mean she’s 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.

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

Heck I adored this story between Cam & Brad who we did meet in The Right Man, being Jewel & Rush's best friends, but for some reason or another it took me a lot longer than it usually would.

Here we see that Brad never comes across like he feels anything likeable towards Cam, well that is until his sister, Sierra & nephew, Dylan comes to his. But things change after she tells Pete *the father of the 2 kids Gerald & Geraldine, she sees

Obviously in the minority again, I struggled to enjoying this story. I had trouble with the first book in this series as well, and could only find, at most, 2 1/2 stars worth of enjoyment from reading it; but, I figured I should give book 2 a chance.

Unfortunately, this felt really similar to the first, to me. The super-hot, bossy, possessive alpha male. The MOST BEAUTIFUL girl in EVERY room she's in, who is also resistant, and unsure of her self-worth. The instant super-attraction betwe

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.

Let me start off by saying that I've read a lot of Michelle Mankin books (almost all of them, I think) and I've enjoyed every one of them, but out of all of them, this was the hardest for me to get through. I just didn't connect with the two lead characters and their relationship felt a little forced to me and some of their conversations, especially during sexy times, felt a little stilted to me, but that could be because I never really bought them as a couple. She was kind of irresponsible and ...more
I thought ‘The Right Man’ was good, but ‘The Right Wish’ with its retelling of Snow White, thrown in with Rockstars has blown me away. Having met Cam in The Right Man, it was not difficult to like Jewels best friend. Now she has her own tale, with her own set of secrets and loss, that she has deeply hidden from everyone around her. Her kind heart and loyalty have you wanting to befriend her yourself. Everyone needs someone like Cam in their life.

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.

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 lef

If you love a modern day Snow White story with a rockstar twist, then you’re going to love Michelle Mankin’s, 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 togethe

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
