With the start of Cambria Hebert’s new series Westbrook Elite, I realized it has been too long since I read one of her books so thank you Elite for getting me back on track 😊 If you didn’t hear about Westbrook Elite before no worries, it is still not too late to start 😊 Wish is the third book of the series and I still cannot decide which is my favorite but if I need to pick one depending on the emotions it evoked, I will go with Wish.
Wes Sinclair is part of Westbrook’s swim team, Elite, but he is cautious of people and mostly keeps to himself until he ran into Ryan and Jamie. His life hasn’t been easy and the people he was betrayed by the ones that are closest to him. We lost his parents at sixteen and after sharing he was gay with his closest circle, he realized that he only has two people he can trust and depend on, his brothers Win and Max. Even though Wes tried his best to keep his sexuality hidden, thanks to his friendship with Ryan and Jamie, he is in the spotlight more than before. Adding Max, who is always acting like an overprotective grumpy control freak, in the mix, people start to suspect his sexuality. But suspicions of the people are not the worst thing for Wes, it is Max’s behavior because it only fuels Wes’s crush. I can hear you say WTH!!! Wasn’t Max his brother? No worries there since Max is Win’s best friend since kindergarten who spent almost all his time in the Sinclair household. Max always has been part of their family and when their parents passed away and Wes came out, Max’s protectiveness became a new level. First two books he was always popping everywhere to save the day but still stayed a total mystery and with Win, brother/best friend, studying abroad we didn’t get more information or background on Max. Wish was the answer to my misery 🙂
I can go on and on about what happened in the book, but I will not spoil it for you. For me, it has been a long wait since I was curious about Wes and Max’s relationships from the beginning of the series but as always it was worth the wait. Wish was heartbreaking but sweet and heartwarming at the same time. Some parts touched me deeply and I couldn’t help but teared up. Wes and Max’s story was captivating, emotional, inspiring, and so much more. As a couple, they are imperfectly perfect. I read so many M/M stories from different authors, but I can easily say that Cambria is the best.
P.S. I am hoping to read more of the series and hopefully, we won’t have to wait long for the next book. I am not sure who will be next but here is my shortlist Win since something is going on there and I won’t be surprised if it is another M/M. Then there is Kruger who is fun and supportive and last Prism, who just pop-in and is a total mystery waiting to be unsolved 🙂
