This came in from Angel Hatfield on Goodreads 10 days ago, and I totally missed seeing it til now!!! She gave it 4 stars!

Than he is called to a new owner and it is Alessandra. Julian and Alessandra are attracted to each other right after meeting. Alessandra spends her time between hospice care and working at a women’s shelter After hearing Julian’s story she wants to free Julian but has to figure out herself how to do it. Jullian can’t tell her. Once her wishes are used she will never see Julian again. But time is running out for them and they have fallen in love. Julian fears he will endure this torture of loving her forever and not being with her.
I really enjoyed this book. There were a few editing problems that needed to be fixed but that didn’t stop me from reading this book. I loved Julian and Alessandra together and how they interacted with each other even of they feel their love is doomed if alessandra doesn’t figure out how to break the curse. I chuckled at times and I choked up at times while reading this book. I did hate Julian’s family.** I really liked the plot and pace. Alessandra was such a ewarm, caring, giving person! I felt bad for all the bad things Julian had to see because of people’s greed and selfishness. Especially when all he had wanted to do was help his family. I am going to see if u can find some more books written by this author as this was the first time a read a book of hers. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend it.
**Note: She meant Alessandra’s family 😉
