I wanted to fall head over heels for Wish for Me and I was in the beginning, sort of. But I don't know, it just wasn't what I expected and I could easily put it down. The opening scene was awesome and hilarious but the more I got to know Glory, I don't know, she just rubbed me the wrong way sometimes with her actions. Glory is real and I love it, but sometimes she was just too much for me and it's probably cause we're so different. She's confidant and out spoken, she's very forward and these are all great qualities but why is it necessary to say "f**king" in like every single sentence you say? I'm not a prude but I'm not one that needs to cuss in everything I say but I also know people who are like that too, my husband is one of them haha. So, for me I'm torn towards Glory. She's real but I just couldn't connect to her.
And then there was this one chapter where Glory thought it be cool to bring Irving to her classes, like why? I understand the first time she wanted to hang out with him, to ask him questions and what not. I mean, he's a freaking GENIE, I'd do the same thing. But why bring him to school the next day, especially if you aren't going to make a wish. I don't know, I think the author gave it a reason in the book but for me it's like, why? Especially, if you guys are only to argue. I know it sort of helped the plot move forward but yeah, still.
The romance, sigh.Read more ›
Well Glory can give as good as she gets, and although her djinn is hotter-than-hot sex-on-legs, she isn’t about to let him treat her like a piece of dirt.
So starts a fiery relationship, with layers of secrets that pop out at unexpected turns, keeping this story twisting and turning and always entertaining. The dialogue is snarky and fun, the action fast, and the characters have a depth and realism that draws you in and pulls you along.
I did have a few niggles: when Irving takes Glory back home to the kingdom of Shrinelyn, the descriptions seem to be straight out of the Arabian Nights – I’d have liked a little innovation. Admittedly once they venture into the countryside it’s there, in the amazing fun Steampunk thread that winds through the tale, but for me, the palace was a tad predictable, and the sex came over a bit like a nod to Fifty Shades. I was also not overly comfortable with Glory’s lack of any reaction to a society chock full of servants who seem to be treated as no more than slaves.
And why on earth did Irving arm her with a sabre that she can’t use, when his armoury is full of weapons she could just point and fire?
Those points aside, I really enjoyed this – until I reached the end.
Gahhhh!!! Yet another of those INFURIATING cliff hanger endings!
I thought I was safe as this is novella, or at best, short novel length. I did not expect to find it only a part of a longer story.Read more ›
The characters have their own kind of chemistry, although I admit I was skeptical at first. I mean, if a man (no matter how attractive!) shows up in my bedroom in the middle of the night, I’m going to freak out! We’re talking screaming, flailing, punching atomic meltdown. So when Glory wakes up to see a man standing over her bed, and just lays there admiring his body? Nuh uh. It’s a good thing that her snarky attitude grew on me. The witty back and forth between Glory and Irving was The Best. Ultimately, it’s what will have me coming back for more in the series.
A big part of what I love about these characters is that they are adults, but still playful. And when I say “adult”, I mean there are tattoos, leather, motorcycles, swears and explicit sex. It’s especially nice to see this kind of “fun” book written for adults, instead of masking it under a YA or NA label, and keeping it cleaner than it needs to be.
The book itself was well-written and very well edited. I did find it irksome to find unanswered questions laying about though. Like, if there was a dangling plot point, Glory would just say “I don’t want to think about it right now” and it would disappear. Problem solved? Not particularly, but if ignored long enough, we’re bound to forget about it eventually. The story followed along at a perfect pace, following a trail of plot crumbs. It pulls the reader along for the ride, and I am greatly looking forward to the next book.
