Book Description

When Lily Jacobs was born, she inherited Fazire – a genie. Her family had three wishes and they’d only ever used one so Fazire was stuck in the human world. This worked since he’d become a member of the family anyway.

Even with a genie, Lily's young life wasn’t perfect. To escape the kids making her miserable at school, Lily buried herself in romance novels. One day, when the teasing was just too much, she used one of her wishes. She told Fazire she wanted to find a man like in her books and she made the most complicated wish Fazire had ever heard. Her wished-for man had to be impossibly handsome, virile, fierce, rugged and ruthless (amongst a dozen other things).

He also had to think she was beautiful and he had to love her more than anything in the world.

Nathaniel McAllister wasn’t born to a life where there were such things as genies granting wishes. His life was filled with drugs, crime and neglect. He was running errands for a gangster before he was in his teens and, even though life and hard work led him to wealth and respectability, he always knew, deep down, he was dirty. When Nate met Lily he knew he was no good for her but as virile, fierce, rugged and ruthless as he was, Nate was no match for the pull of sweet, innocent Lily.

Unfortunately, Lily’s wish included that she and her hero go through trials and tribulations to test their love. And Fazire wasn’t only a good genie, he loved Lily – so he gave her exactly what she wanted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Had Me From The Get Go.... March 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is my first book review on Amazon...and I felt that Three Wishes is justifiably that good to review. I've read all of Kristen Ashley's books--Colorado series, Dream Man series, Burg, Unfinished Heroes, Play it Safe (LOVED), you name it. When my friend asked if I had read Three Wishes yet, I told her I had no interest because of the genie thing. She convinced me to read it and I devoured this book in one long stretch. I loved every aspect of it. The innocence of Lily, the hot alpha of Nate, their heartache, their love, this book had it all. Bring in Tash. The tender scenes between Lily and Tash, and the unconditional love that flows once Nate learns he has a daughter, it was heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time. One of the things I loved most about this book and the way that KA wrote it, was that she had the break-up between Nate and Lily occur in the first quarter section of the book. Then, although a few short years pass, she doesn't drag it out (in terms of writing). The reuniting happens fast and it doesn't keep you hanging. Some books are written where there is that one scene that totally makes you re-read it numerous times. This was the scene in the lawyer's office midway through. When you read it, you will know what I mean. It was awesome and left me completely fulfilled. KA lays everything out right then and there without missing a single detail (the break-up). It was perfect.

Now, the genie...I'm sorry, before I read this book I was thinking it was going to be so stupid. I could not have been so wrong. I freaking loved Fazire. He is adorable, funny, protective, witty, a friend and uncle like character. Sooooooo endearing. He ended up being my favorite character.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shoot, this could have been 4-5 stars so easily June 23, 2012
By JLW
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
But the hero went too far when he went cold on the heroine even after they got back together. That was just too cruel and unloving and not what I would expect from someone who was truly determined to love another.

Story started off interesting with the genie aspect but then after the first couple of chapters, his involvement in the story was really diminished, another reason for my 2 star review.

The HEA ending was waaay over the top to the point of being cheesy.

The biggest drawback for me was how everything was being done for the sake of the daughter. First off, with that type of attitude towards her upbringing the girl would grow up to be a total brat. 2nd, I didn't care for the message the author was sending out as that a single mother had to sacrifice her own happiness and put up with a loveless marriage just so that her daughter could feel she had her biological father in her life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Depth February 18, 2013
By Julie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I held off on reading this book thinking the genie angle would be corny. While there is a definite fairytale quality to the story, there is also a lot of depth to the story and to the characters. Nate is one of KA's best heroes...so tortured, at times cruel, and always alpha. But he's also unbelievably sweet and fierce and totally worth saving. The heroine is no slouch either. She is definitely one to root for and respect. Be warned that, like in KA's other books, For You, Play It Safe, and Fairytale Come Alive, the hero and heroine are separated for years, and this is a source of great heartbreak. I loved the angst, though, and like all KA books, it never got too heavy or unbearable. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read ths book April 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is extraordinary, amazing, and magnificent, the kind of book that, when you pick it up to re-read it later, demands you re-read *every* sentence, not just the parts you like best.

Read this book.

There is no angst for the sake of angst. It's deeply emotional but not dark. The relationship between Lily and Nate is beautiful, and their overall story is doubly so.

Read this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Big, Splashy Soap Opera ... with a Genie December 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Kristen Ashley has become one of my favorite romance authors. She can write.This book must have been her first, however.

It is the silliest, splashiest, over the top soap opera I've read in a long time. It begins with such a mega-dose of heroine's family history, it was like listening to a co-worker tell one of those long-winded stories about their 'fascinating' second cousins.

Loved the genie in the story, but the poor guy spent most of his time looking picturesque and being a foil for the perfect sweetness of his adoptive family who, gosh darn it, just never have a negative thought or trait.

The heroine... oh, dear. Meet Mary Sue. She's perfect, she's beautiful, everyone falls in love with her on sight, she sacrifices herself for her daughter and even the big, bad hero is helpless against her feminine splendor. She suffers, but through no fault of her own--just the usual, y'know, death, crippling migraines, worst possible childbirth, hateful betrayals.

The hero is ruthless, cold, calculating, and tough, all in the fine tradition of Harlequin tycoons. I personally love this type of hero, as they are redeemed through love. But even tho this one is a ruthless kingdom-maker, he is apparently not smart enough to keep track of the heroine and loses her for 8 years. Really? He moved her into his flat and didn't get her cell phone number?? He didn't call America to check on her when she suddenly and uncharacteristically disappeared??

Not sure what happened in the end with their wildly swinging relationship, because for the first time, I didn't finish a KA book.

More About the Author

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen's Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing's changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she's blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
