Wish For Me (The Djinn Order #1)
Author: A. StarPublication Date: April 27, 2015
I received a copy from Xpresso Book Tours in anticipation of an upcoming Book Tour for the sequel, Dream Of Me. This does not affect my review in any way!
When the snarky Glory St. Pierre discovers the gold mechanical vase in her deceased grandmother’s basement, she has no idea that she has uncovered a priceless treasure: a genie lamp. With a real genie inside. A very sexy genie with a not-so-sexy grudge against the entire human race.
Irving Amir hates being called a genie. He’s a Djinn, and he is none too happy to be in the service of Glory, who is as intolerable, and beautiful, as humans come. Now he owes her his gratitude for freeing him and three wishes. Damn his luck.
But an arrow through the shoulder alerts Irving to the fact that he is being hunted, and after a truce dinner with Glory ends with them both almost being killed, hating each other goes right out the window. As feelings change and love starts to develop, they must dig through the secrets and lies to find the truth…a truth neither of them will ever see coming.
WARNING: Not suitable for ages 18 and under. A significant source of bad language, sexy times, and dirty jokes. If you suffer from a lack of a sense of humor, take with plenty of wine. If the symptom persists, see a doctor.
Wish For Me was a fun, light read with an interesting storyline and a Djinn to die for, totally swoonworthy!!
The main character, Molly, is a a 19 year old college student who is at a stage in her life where she just wants to get good grades and have fun. Cleaning out her lately departed granny’s attic was not how she would classify fn but it did lead to a surprising find, a Chronolier (genie lamp), which came with a key 9no rubbing necessary). Said key unlocks the clockwork which opens a portal to the Djinn’s world, Shrinelyn, and out comes Irving, not too pleased to be there, to grant three wishes. Things just get heated (fans self) and interesting from there.
Now, I’m not a huge romance fan, and some of the dialogue and scenes were a bit corny, but it was done in a humourous way, and I soon grew accustomed and accepting of the banter.
Although the brewing romance was predominant at first, political intrigue and action soon comes into play, and that’s what sold this story for me. Some eye-opening revelations totally surprised me and a twist that I never saw coming and I’m usually pretty good at guessing these.
If you’re lookng for a fun, humour filled, romantic fantasy with characters you will love and be annoyed with at the same time . with a splash of intrigue and action and a hint of secrets waiting to be unveiled, then this is the book for you. Be aware, strong language and explicit scenes abound!
