Overview

Have you ever wished you could find a magic lamp and? poof!? a genie would appear before you offering wishes? Be careful what you wish for! Celeste feels a special draw to a beautiful quartz crystal she sees in her favorite store. When she brings it home, she finds herself staring into its liquid depths at a small imperfection that makes the stone so mesmerizing. She polishes off a fingerprint marring the surface and a man--all granite hard muscle and starkly sensual good looks--appears before her. The genie of the crystal. Zurvan. As soon as Zurvan sees Celeste? a woman! ... rage blazes through him. He does NOT trust women. He was imprisoned, tortured and cursed by Atia, a woman who claims she loves him yet punishes him because he can't love her back. Zurvan tamps down his anger and offers Celeste her three wishes. Celeste hardly believes she is face-to-face with a real live genie and feels out of her depth with the highly sensual, overwhelmingly masculine man who is nothing like the willing-to-please genie she imagines from fairy tales. Although this man is to serve her, she feels he is the one in control. Not only that, there is something about this man that seems vaguely familiar. Like a hazy image from a dream. When they both fall prey to the white hot attraction between them, Zurvan promises her the greatest pleasure she will ever experience? and delivers! Celeste soon finds she must remind herself she does not trust love. She has watched both her mother and sister stay with men who mistreat them because they say they love them. Celeste figures that if that's love, who needs it? What their behavior has really convinced her of, though, is that there's no way she would ever be able to recognize real love. As Celeste goes through the process of making her wishes, she and Zurvan discover some unsettling truths about both their pasts. Now she knows that when he returns to his imprisonment in the crystal--and there is nothing she can do to stop it--she will be left to endure a life of interminable loneliness missing the man she was meant to be with forever. To My Reader: Crystal Genie isn't your typical Aladdin story. Zurvan, the powerful male genie, has no intention of being mastered by anyone, let alone a female--no matter how sexy she is. This is a story with steaming hot sex, but also a story of enduring love. Fall under the spell of? Opal Carew's Crystal Genie

Review by Marissa: Crystal Genie is an interesting story. I found it interesting that Celeste was absorbed by the crystal and part of her knew that life as she knew it was going to change. Crystal Genie had a twist from the normal genie in a bottle story. This genie was in a crystal, and there is a time limit on the wishes. Celeste has only three days to make the three wishes, which was interesting. If you were put on the spot like Celeste would you be able to come up with your wishes? Zuran, the Genie, was different. He left me with mixed feelings. He had a dislike for women and changed Celeste to suit him. I understand his hatred toward Atia for imprisoning him centuries ago, but he shouldn't take it out on all women. Overall, I found Crystal Genie to be a great read. I enjoyed the relationship between Celeste and Zuran and watching them react to each other. However if left me wondering if Celeste was returned to her original appearance or not. The only thing I would have liked for Crystal Genie to have more of was more of an emotional connection between the characters.
