(The Djinn Order #1)
Publication date: April 27th 2015
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Steampunk
Three wishes. Two lovers. One destiny.
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 sparked a little curiosity in me with the whole genie in a lamp and three wishes. I assumed it would be sort of like Aladdin but I had no idea I was going to like it this much. It’s not the kind of book I would normally pick out, but once in a while I like to shake things up and deviate from my preferred genres. This goes to show that you should definitely venture out of your comfort zone more often. I never would’ve guessed that the “genie” or the Djinn would be so extremely swoonworthy! I liked the heroine a lot too (except for a couple of occasions when she needed to be smacked in the head). She was feisty and funny and I liked that.
4.5 out of 5 stars
