Not often does a reader come across a heroine like Daisy. She doesn't have much but uses all that she has to make a better life for herself and the people counting on her. Learning to take care of herself will take a skill set she has yet to comprehend. Enter an old friend from a different time. Crash remembers Daisy. Headstrong, beautiful and opinionated Daisy. The girl he could never forget. The girl who turned him away. Now she needs him and he wants her. Her Every Wish is about hardship, prejudice and forgiveness. A person is measured by the obstacles they face and the strength they have to overcome them. Lesson learned.

Daisy Whitlaw has never had it easy and yet with every setback in her life, she can't stop herself from hoping for better things for herself and her mother. When the local parish announces a prize for the best proposal for a new business, with no language that says the prize is available exclusively to men, Daisy applies. In an effort to prepare for her speech, Daisy takes the offer of help from Crash, the charming man who broke her heart not that long ago.

Even in novella format, Courtney Milan knows how to rock a narrative. Daisy and Crash are fully fleshed-out characters that are compelling throughout and their back story and relationship development are utterly believable for the time period. If you're looking for a quick novella romance, this one is fully satisfying. ( )

I love Courtney Milan!!!! I adore every single character she has ever written, and Crash and Daisy are no exceptions. However, I think Daisy was hurt far worse by Crash than vice versa and should not have been the one to prostrate herself. She absolutely needed to own and apologize for her unconscious well-meaning-white-girl racism, but Crash was far more vicious and cruel and frankly, I think he should have had to work a bit harder to regain her trust.

Daisy Whitlaw knows that to support herself and her mother she must do more than be a flower shop girl. She has a vision. A vision hampered by lack of funds and crowded out by the prejudices of her community. When she enters a competition to gain funds to start a trade she runs smack bang into those prejudices. Trade is for men!
With the help of her once friend and once beloved, Crash, a young man who has been brought up to stand tall and not let his circumstances of birth hamper his dreams, Daisy learns to see her worth and to fight for what she wants.
Of course she and Crash do have some problems to confront and the path of true love is not at all guaranteed. But with a more focused attitude Daisy is learning to stand up for herself, and even more importantly to look at how her own attitudes might need to change.
A very different and touching story.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Crash has never let the circumstances of his birth, or his lack of a last name, bother him. His associations may be unsavory, but money, friends, and infamy open far more interesting doors than respect ever could. His sole regret? Once lovely, sweet Daisy Whitlaw learned the truth about how he made his fortune, she cut him off. Daisy's father is dead, her mother is in ill health, and her available funds have dwindled to a memory. When the local parish announces a charity bequest to help young people start a trade, it's her last chance. So what if the grants are intended for men? If she's good enough, she might bluff her way into a future. When Crash offers to show her how to swagger with confidence, she knows he is up to no good. But with her life in the balance, she's desperate enough to risk the one thing she hasn't yet lost: her heart.… (more)
