Wish Upon a Stud series by Elise Sax

"Disclosure: this ebook was provided to Bex 'n' Books by the author for an HONEST and not necessarily positive review."

I received this series in return for my honest review.

The Wish Upon A Stud Series is five hot and hilarious novellas about wishes that go terribly wrong…fortunately. Wish Upon A Stud...A happy ending is just a coin toss away. 

Book 1: Going Down:
Marion MacAlister wants to nail her audition, not get nailed. Truly. Honestly. All right...maybe she does want to get nailed, but that's just because her hottie landlord and local diner owner Mack Ryan is confusing her. Can friends become lovers? Especially friends who might not even be friends in the first place? 

Book 2: Man Candy:
Raine Harper is in love with Wade Gates. But Wade likes women who are model thin, and Raine is model thin plus a whole lot of pounds. Desperate to make him love her, she trains just a little too hard and passes out in the arms of superstar movie star Dirk Adams. Dirk thinks Raine’s junk in the trunk is perfect and proposes to make Wade jealous by becoming her pretend boyfriend. Pretend soon seems very real. Is Dirk a great actor, or is something really developing between Raine and the movie star? 

Book 3: Hot Wired:
Marie Foster is not a cheater. Nevertheless, she gets thrown out of college for doing just that. With her life turned upside down, she decides to try new things. You know…Get drunk in a bar. Pick up a guy. Marry a stranger, who just happens to be a hot billionaire.

Book 4: Just Sacked:
Layla has been working at her family’s bar since she was five years old. But it’s more than a bar. It’s home. Now with her family gone and debts piling up, her bar is repossessed and taken over by local businessman Hank Taylor. Hank offers Layla a deal: If she can win a drinking contest, she can have the bar back. Layla’s never lost a drinking contest in her life, but after an evening swigging back whiskey, she and Hank wake up together, naked and handcuffed in Mexico. Getting home offers dangerous adventure, and it’s a toss up whether Hank and Layla will get back before they kill each other or fall in love.

Book 5: Wicked Ride:
Fiona Jones has never killed anyone, but there’s a first for everything. Still, maybe she shouldn't have hired Ronin—a sexy killer with a wicked motorcycle-- who’s giving her more than her share of attention.

I have to admit, I was a little intimated when I saw there was 5 books in the series.  To my delight, each of these books are more like novellas. I was able to read the entire series in about 3 days.  3 days that all I wanted to do was read these stories. Each book tied in with the next.  All are set in the same town and each woman in the books has made a wish on their towns famous wishing fountain.  I'm sure you've heard the saying, "Watch what you wish for", apparently none of these women have.  Their wishes come true but in very unexpected ways. 

I must say, I really enjoyed this series. I was a little surprised I enjoyed it as much as I did.  I'm not a big romance reader but the characters in these books were hilarious. I don't remember the last time I laughed so much while reading a book that wasn't humor.  (My husband kept asking me what was so funny and I would have to  read the part to him. ) The author did a great job keeping the humor and the sex at a good pace.  It never got slow, there wasn't too much sex (as you often find in romance novels), it was a perfect blend of everything you could want.  This would be a great series for a beach read this summer. I give The Wish Upon a Stud series 4/5 stars.
