A WISH FOR US: 
Is a Full length, emotional New Adult novel by Author ‘Tillie Cole’ Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ In this we meet Crowell Dean and Bonnie Farraday.

Cromwell Dean is a nineteen year old music prodigy, a musical genius who just one day stopped playing, and instead turned his hand at spinning beats, when Bonnie and Cromwell first met she accused his music of having no soul, she’d heard of Cromwell way before he’d made his stamp as a hot shot DJ in Europe, and because of this she’d travelled especially just to see him but left feeling empty and unimpressed. And that was the end of that. Or so they thought. 

I'd heard you were some messiah or something on that podium.But all your music comprised was synthetic beats and forced repetitive bursts of unoriginal tempo."

Starting a new chapter in his life at Jefferson Young, University in London, ridding on a scholarship to study under a world renowned composer, the last person he ever expected to see again was the girl that told him his music has no soul, to say he’s bitter is an understatement, he’s rude and arrogant, cold and hurtful, with a chip on his shoulder bigger than the Eiffel Tower but there’s no hiding from the girl who sees too much because he’s rooming with her twin brother Easton.

He may be the fastest rising DJ in Europe, but what he was playing wasn't his passion. 

Cromwell is the boy who feels too much, he's sees the world in colour, he masks his pain by drinking himself into oblivion, trying to hide from the music that speaks to him. 

But not only that they have been teamed up together for the rest of the year to compose a piece of original music. 

Working together is difficult, Bonnie knows what he's capable of but he's hiding from the pain music brings out of him, she pulls, he pushes, slowly she gets under his skin and we see him emerging into that same young boy that let his soul sing. 

Tillie Cole like the rest before me has collected my fallen tears too!! I have no words..This was just so beautifully written, it made me wish that I played an instrument so that the music could convey how much this hit me, I loved everything about this book, a slow burn, slow ignite, slow destroyer of tears, Tillie Cole has done it again!! This book pretty much slayed me, all the feels in the world..

From the author who brought you A Thousand Boy Kisses comes the new emotional novel, A Wish For Us.
A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.

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.
 
Amazon & USA Today Best Selling Author, Tillie Cole, is a Northern girl through and through. She originates from a place called Teesside on that little but awesomely sunny (okay I exaggerate) Isle called Great Britain. She was brought up surrounded by her English rose mother -- a farmer's daughter, her crazy Scottish father, a savagely sarcastic sister and a multitude of rescue animals and horses. 
Being a scary blend of Scottish and English, Tillie embraces both cultures; her English heritage through her love of HP sauce and freshly made Yorkshire Puddings, and her Scottish which is mostly demonstrated by her frighteningly foul-mouthed episodes of pure rage and her much loved dirty jokes.

Having been born and raised as a Teesside Smoggie, Tillie, at age nineteen, moved forty miles north to the 'Toon', Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, where she attended Newcastle University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts honours degree in Religious Studies. She returned two years later to complete a Post-Graduate Certificate in Teaching High School Social Studies. Tillie, regards Newcastle to be a home from home and enjoyed the Newcastle Geordie way of life for seven 'proper mint' and 'lush' years.

One summers day, after finishing reading her thousandth book on her much loved and treasured Kindle, Tillie turned to her husband and declared, "D'you know, I have a great idea for a story. I could write a book." Several months later, after repeating the same tired line at the close of another completed story, she was scolded by her husband to shut up talking about writing a novel and "just bloody do it!" For the first time in eleven years, Tillie actually took his advice (he is still trying to get over the shock) and immediately set off on a crazy journey, delving deep into her fertile imagination. 

Tillie, ever since, has written from the heart. She combines her passion for anything camp and glittery with her love of humour and dark brooding men (most often muscled and tattooed – they’re her weakness!). She also has a serious side (believe it or not!) and loves to immerse herself in the complex study of World Religions, History and Cultural Studies and creates fantasy stories that enable her to thread serious issues and topics into her writing -- yep, there's more to this girl than profanity and sparkles!

After six years of teaching high school Social Studies and following her Professional Rugby Player husband around Europe, they have finally given up their nomadic way of life and settled in Calgary, Alberta where Tillie spends most of her days (and many a late night) lost in a writing euphoria or pursuing a dazzling career as a barrel-racing, tasselled-chap wearing, Stetson-sporting cowgirl... Ye-haw!
