Summary from GoodReads:
A brokenhearted Viola inadvertently summons a genie into her world. Jinn agrees to stay until Viola makes three wishes, but she’s afraid she won’t wish for the right thing. Jinn can’t deny that he’s falling for Viola, and only after she makes her first wish does Viola realize she’s in love with Jinn.
This is the first Jackson Pearce book I’ve read. I did like it, but I didn’t love it. I just felt like something was missing from this one. That being said, I did stay up way too late to finish it, so I definitely didn’t hate it!
This novel is told in alternating POVs between Viola and Jinn. I’m generally not a big fan of alternating POVs but I didn’t mind it in this book. Usually in alternating POVs, I feel like I am just getting interested and invested in one character, and then I have to start all over again with a different character, but Pearce really handled the different POVs very well.
Although I did like Viola, she is not one of my favorite MCs. She was just a little too whiny for my tastes. She did grow, though, throughout the story, and I feel like the person she became at the end of the book was great. I wish she was more like that at the beginning of the novel.
I really liked Jinn!!!! I definitely liked the chapters from his POV the best. He was so impatient at the beginning, just wanting Viola to make her three wishes so he could return to his home. But the more time he spent in Viola’s world, the more he realized what made that world so great.
After Jinn, my next favorite character was Viola’s best friend, Lawrence. He was definitely an awesome character. What an amazing friend he was to Viola, even when Viola was being a bit self-centered.
So, I thought his book was alright. Definitely worth reading, but not spectacular, in my opinion.
