Her Wish by Sophie H. Morgan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
After having read the second book in the series, I wanted to go back and see where this world began. This book, while not as light and silly as I might have expected, was still a nice read.
Charlie is a jaded and sarcastic woman who has never been made to feel pretty. It could be her upbringing, which was less than ideal, or it could just be her friends (or lack thereof). Either way, she’s trying her hardest to get her book store off the ground and make a life for herself when everything changes. Her overly helpful roommate bought her a lottery ticket for a genie wish and she ends up winning. While most people might have been happy, this is essentially Charlie’s nightmare. She wants nothing to do with wishes.
Jax is an overly confident playboy genie who gets paid to grant wishes and seduce women (essentially). Things rapidly go downhill when he is tasked with getting Charlie to wish. He tries all the usual things – charm, seduction, endless pestering – but Charlie appears immune. It’s only when he finds himself falling for her than things change for the better (or worse, depending on which side you’re on). This love story was definitely unconventional, but super sweet (and hot). As a genie book, this is definitely one unique world and I’d be interested in seeing more from this author.
