Check ou the review of this amazig book!
Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.

Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.

When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.

Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.

Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.

But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.

A symphony of hope.
A symphony of love.
A symphony of them.

Cromwell Dean is a rising star of eletronic dance music. He travels the world sharing his music to crowds, and though he's known to make everyone high with his music, that doesn't happen with him; he's completely numb, no feelings, the only constant things in his life are the colors.

Until a girl in a purple dress appears in the night club he was playing and caught his attention. Since the beginning Cromwell wanted to know more about that girl who was so different from the others around her; not just because the way she stands but because of the new colors she brought to his world. But in a minute the girl was standing in the middle of the crowd and in another she was gone. Later that night, they meet again and Cromwell ends up listening some painful truths about his music.

Little he knew their paths would cross again. This time Cromwell and Bonnie Farraday would be forced to face each other at college and work together on a project. But just like that night on the beach, Cromwell and Bonnie seem to have problems to in the same place without arguing. All the young girl wants is to finish the project without any kind of stress, mas it seems the DJ dind't care with anything and doesn't make Bonnies life easy.

And it is only when Bonnie takes a drastic attitude that Cromwell seems to wake up. Soon as he realize that things are slinding through his fingers, Cromwell also realizes that Bonnie didn't bring only new colors to his life; that girl seems to have the power to bring to life things he long time has lost, especially his feelings. But that wasn't something he was used to deal with...

When things start to change, he knows he wouldn't let Bonnie go away to easily, even if she tried. But the situation gets even more complicated and, though Cromwell always have been the troublemaker of the equation, now Boonie was the one who needed help... Bonnie's colors were starting to fade away and it was up to Cromwell decide if he would protect his heart from total destruction or if he would go for it and help to keep Bonnie's color alive as long as he could.

I really loved 'A Thousand Boy Kisses', but 'A Wish For Us'?! Dear God, what a book! It's a helluva book, it's everything! That was a really good shot, Tillie! Once again I had my heart broken because of a book, more tears cried because of the characters! Tillie Cole definitely knows how to tear our emotions apart... Damn! This book will broke your heart, literally!

Cromwell is a character that is a little bitter and insurgent. Some things in his past ghost him, especially thins that were said and can never be excused, and the guilt weighs on his shoulders and burns his soul. Besides, there's the fact he has synesthesia, which means that every time he listens a sound, his mind transforms it as a color, and Cromwell is a musical genius, he can play any instrument even if he never played before. But the problem is that he does everything he can to shut down his senses, feelings and even the colors, and I swear to you guys, I really wanted to go inside the book and hug Cromwell...

It's impossible you don't fall in love for his character, especially when the author starts to show what happened to him and how all that affected his life. And then we have Bonnie, a bubbly character who was not very happy when she realized her 'idol' wasn't all that thing, and his new music wasn't what she expected... But lets face it: Cromwell didn't help his case.

From night to day Bonnie finds herself being forced to face the young DJ who is now her classmate. The fact he being roomate with her twin brother, tells her he would be around for a while. When things start to change between Bonnie and Cromwell, she knew what it needed to be done and I loved the way the author showed us Bonnies conflicts and the uncertainties about her future... Wow, my heart hurts!

Tillie Cole has a gift on writing and creating wonderful stories and strong characters! Bonnie and Cromwell are amazing figures and it's impossible to not fall in love with them or feel their pain or even to be passive with the injustices of life. Another plot full of breathtaking twist that I couldn't stop reading... Well done, Tillie!
