Thank you @katieandbreypa and the author for the free copy in exchange for my honest review.
★A jaded girl. A persistent genie. A contest of souls.★
Recent college graduate Dolly Jones has spent the last year stubbornly trying to atone for a mistake that cost her everything. She doesn’t go out, she doesn’t make new friends and she sure as hell doesn’t treat herself to things she hasn’t earned, but when her most recent thrift store purchase proves home to a hot, magical genie determined to draw out her darkest desires in exchange for a taste of her soul, Dolly’s restraint, and patience, will be put to the test.
Newbie genie Velis Reilhander will do anything to beat his older half-brothers in a soul-collecting contest that will determine the next heir to their family estate, even if it means coaxing desire out of the least palatable human he’s ever contracted. As a djinn from a ‘polluted’ bloodline, Velis knows what it’s like to work twice as hard as everyone else, and he won’t let anyone—not even Dolly f*cking Jones—stand in the way of his birthright. He just needs to figure out her heart’s greatest desire before his asshole brothers can get to her first.
It was my very first genie romance and I was sold when I was told it was funny. And oh I wasn’t disappointed. This was a really great book, fast paced and very addictive. I wasn’t expecting the ending at all- so that’s a massive plus.
Velis and Dolly are two funny and great characters, that you’ll love following. Maybe sometimes it was a bit repetitive on Dolly’s side with all the feelings and not letting herself be able to fall in love etc which was sometimes a bit annoying but it was so great that it’s forgiven!
And honestly the plot twist: chef’s kiss! Also the boon was so well written that I don’t feel like I have questions or anything about this whole world- the writing, plot and characters are well developed! I definitely want to read the next book!
I’m not sure I’ve ever read a book with a genie in it, so consider me SOLD as well! I gotta get my hands on this. It sounds adorable and creative and your review certainly increases my interest in it 🙂
