Ever since Viola's boyfriend broke up with her, she has spent her days silently wishing—to have someone love her again and, more importantly, to belong again—until one day she inadvertently summons a young genie out of his world and into her own. He will remain until she makes three wishes.
Jinn is anxious to return home, but Viola is terrified of wishing, afraid she will not wish for the right thing, the thing that will make her truly happy. As the two spend time together, the lines between master and servant begin to blur, and soon Jinn can't deny that he's falling for Viola. But it's only after Viola makes her first wish that she realizes she's in love with Jinn as well . . . and that if she wishes twice more, he will disappear from her life—and her world—forever.
Jackson Pearce spins a magical tale about star-crossed lovers, what it means to belong . . . and how important it is to be careful what you wish for.
From the first chapter of this novel I was hooked. This is the first novel by Jackson that I have read and I loved every second of it. It’s was just so funny and just genius there aren’t enough words that I can think of to describe how much I loved this book.
I loved Viola she was so easy to relate to and if she was in my school I would have wanted her to be my best friend, I could just see myself in her and I think that there was one thing or another in her personality that everyone can relate to.
Don’t think that I forgot about Ginn I loved him and he was so cute and protective when he figured out that his feeling for Viola and that just made me love him even more. All the characters were well rounded and it was as if they were jumping off the page.
It was beautifully written and this novel for me was just wow.
