#Review: Skylar Wishes – Tina L. Hook
For as long as she’s known Skylar, Alina has wanted to be her. Everything Skylar has, she wants, including her man. She knows she shouldn’t covet someone one’s life, but she can’t help herself. It’s hard living a life you don’t really want to live, most especially when you’re never satisfied with the circumstances that have led you to where you are now.
A random wish one night soon changes Alina and Skylar’s life. Somehow, Alina has learned how to switch bodies with her friend. So much so, that she’s determined in living out every aspect of Skylar’s life. In her mind, she’ll get to experience what she’s never experienced before, and she’ll finally enjoy everything her life has to offer. Deep inside, it’s her way of exacting retribution on Skylar for past slights.
Skylar, on the other hand, refuses to stand by while Alina wreaks havoc on the life she’s carefully constructed. She’s always know Alina wanted more than what she’s had, but she never expected her friend to callously take what doesn’t belong to her. If she’s to succeed in regaining what truly belongs to her, she’ll need to make sense of the changes Alina has forced on her.
Her new life is tempting, and she’s learned a lot in the process. Yet she can’t help but to want what she had before. The choices she now faces are hard to bear. Alina must repent for what she’s done. Skylar knows she’ll need to do what’s right when the time comes. The question is, how can she do so when she doesn’t know what she wants in the first place?
Skylar Wishes is one of those stories makes that you think, What if? I found the book itself to be a wonderful change from the usual stories I read. Tina has crafted a world around the theme of wishes and what their consequences would be. Have you ever wanted something different? To have your true love by your side? Or perhaps to have someone you cared for come back to life? What if you could wish for it, and have that wish come true?
Skylar Wishes centers around that very theme. It explores the consequences of wishing for something a character really wants. It’s enlightening to see how each of the women deal with the extraordinary circumstances that change their lives forever. Circumstances that strengthen their demeanors, and allow them to grow in more ways than one. This is a story that’s truly thought-provoking, and lends credence to the old adage of, “Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it.” You’re going to want to give this book a chance. You won’t regret it, trust me.

About the book: Grace is the only one who remembers the truth—that comets are the source of extraordinary destinies. Since their last night together, all memory of their comets and their old powers has abandoned Skylar and Alina. All that is left is Alina’s enduring envy for everything Skylar touches, and Alina’s sudden ability to wake up inside of Skylar’s body, if only for a few minutes.
After Alina finally forces her will and switches bodies with Skylar, harsh realities surface. The holes in Skylar’s relationship with Darren are exposed, and Skylar herself becomes seduced by the idea of living two lives at once, and loving two men at once.
Grace might be able to save them, but everything Skylar and Alina know about love has to change. When their comets return, these three women must choose their fate once more.Get Skylar Wishes through Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
