Overview

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.

Meet the Author

Kristen Ashley grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of 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 up, it keeps getting better.

    WOW

    I cried, laughed, got angry and was feeling completely content by the end of the book. Wonderful development, amazing storyline and just outstanding writing. I've read this book 5 times now - still makes me cry! I mean straight on hitching of the breath crying - don't read the end in public. Just saying.

    Read this book.

    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.

    AMAZING BOOK!

    I was instantly captivated by this book. I read it (over a 1000 pages) in one day... I could not put it down. This book will make you happy, sad, cry, laugh and everything in between. I've read a few of K.A. books and ALL... I mean ALL of them have been amazing books!

    I’ve been reading arcs like crazy lately. I’ve gotten my list from 21 down to 11, but I needed a break. Enter Kristen Ashley with her standalone story Three Wishes.

    The Description of Three Wishes caught my attention and I decided to read this standalone rather than continue on the Colorado Mountain series (don’t worry I’ll get back to it), but it’s Halloween and something extra fantasy sounded fun.

    The storytelling in Three Wishes is different than how other Kristen Ashley books are written and it did take me a while to adjust to it, but once I did I was into the story. A lot of this story happens in the past and we have to bring readers up to the future before we can meet our current couple. As a reader you really need this back story so you can fully understand the relationship between Lily and her genie.

    Our hero, Nate was one heck of an alpha right from the start. I loved it, but you know how I love those fictional crazy men that jump right in. But boys, it’s only cool when it’s FICTION. :)

    But then the story takes a dramatic turn and I was left realing. The new plot direction isn’t bad it was just so sad, I almost cried. I felt so bad for our hero Nate and the heroine, Lily. I just wanted everything to be perfect for them. Why is life hard?

    Three Wishes was just a great crazy read. It had me so emotional I almost lost it many times while reading and you know I am not one to cry. I just couldn’t put the book down. The ending came and if I hadn’t been reading at some early morning hour I would have been yelling at Lily out loud. I couldn’t believe something that she does in the end, I wanted to shake my kindle and hope it shook some sense into her, but in the end everything ends up okay so I got over it.

    I thought Three Wishes was a good story. I liked how Nate was so sure of things and his take charge attitude. He was an alpha I could get behind. There were a few places when the story was a little crazy, okay it was mostly crazy, but come on we’re reading about a genie here, I think it’s allowed.

    ## A reviewer on another book mentioned this author. I decided to take a chance an bought this e-book.
    I have over 1200 e-books stored in my nook now. I am explaining this because this is, BY FAR, the most amazing, beautiful, heart wrenching, story I have ever read!
    Please don't pass up reading this story. Operah should take note and read this book! She would be enthralled!
    If I could I would give this book a perfict 10!

    Astounding

    This, along with Golden Dynasty, is my favorite story by K.A.. Her men are always MEN, but with this one you actually feel that heartache, it physically hurts, which is the hallmark of a great story. And when Love makes the pain beautiful and it becomes an amazing throb? Simply put...astounding.

    I've read several other books by this author, love the character

    I've read several other books by this author, love the characters, love the sex scenes, but do find her a little wordy at times.  However, THIS book absolutely captured my heart!  I could not put it down (and it is a LONG book, so this was tough).  I had to continually keep reading until there was a place I wasn't in angst, terrified of the outcome, and feeling the characters would be safe until I could back to them.  Her heroines are tough and sassy, the males are always alpha and hunks, and the endings always leave a warm after glow.  Read it!

    Three wishes

    4.5 stars The romance between Lily and Nate is awsome. The support characters are full and rich. A story to read And Read Again. Who knew a geni could carry such a good contemporary romance. A heart warming fantasy with hot - hot - hot romance and HEA.

    I did like this book but than I enjoy all of Kristen Ashley's book...they always take me to a new place with people/ characters that I would like to get to know. That said, there are many other Kristen Ashley books that I like more. My favorites are any of the Rock Chicks series.

    Kristen Ashley can do no wrong!!! She is a writing genius! I wasn't sure how I was going to like this one, but once again she just knocks it out of the park!! Yes there is a genie, it takes place in London, but you still have the hot hero and the quirky heroine that all her books have. Just read it! You will not be dissapointed!
