(3.25 stars) I don’t read much PN but this blurb caught my attention. Dimitri is a genie who is bonded to his master and must do everything he wishes. Early on the pattern of the story line was the…wish…sex…wish and it became a bit predictable. I wanted to feel more of a connection between Dim and Syd but they barely spoke to one another. The book did pick up once the plot and links were revealed. I liked the humor; it was very funny and often had me laughing out loud. I liked the genie/master element since I haven’t read those types of books before and thought the history behind it was interesting. I do plan on investing the time into book two and am anxious to see what’s up next for Syd and Dimitri.

Summoned by Rainy Kaye is a very new, very unique look into the mystery of the jinn. I absolutely loved it. Non stop action, adventure, and love. I purchased this as part of the Pandora collection.

I was hesitant to purchase this book due to there being no reviews and that the author is unknown to me. I'm so glad I did! The plots original. The writing is good and Dimitri is awesome. Basically for me this is one of those rare books that stand out from the many I've read. Loved it!!

This book really took me on a journey. And I loved every minute of it. What first drew my attention to this book was the cover and after skimming the blurb about it, I knew I had to read it. I love paranormal books and had yet to read a book focused on a jinn. I was expecting the typical genie type things to happen but I was given something much different yet surprisingly fun to read. What really made this book for me was Dimitri's voice. He's hilarious and he never lost his sense of humor or his sarcastic way of describing things which I absolutely loved. My favorite brand of humor no doubt and one that not many authors utilize which makes this book even more unique. I wasn't a huge fan of Dim's love interest, Syd, in the beginning but she did grow on me as the story progressed. Silvia was also an interesting character who had a lot more to her than just her rich-girl life that you first see. She had a surprising twist hidden in herself which really lent an even more disturbing air to the book than it already had. Although I loved Dimitri's voice, it still took me a while to get into the plot. I think mostly it was because I hadn't bothered to try to piece together what the different events had in common. So in the beginning I just felt like I was reading mismatched events and watching as Dimitri bumbled through his servitude and I honestly still would've been satisfied if that's all the book had delivered. However, when the twists started to be revealed, I loved how the plot came together. There were twists galore and they were magnificent twists indeed. I also love the uniqueness of this book as well. There aren't many books told from male point of views for one thing, let alone in the New Adult genre and paranormal on top of that. I loved getting bits and pieces of the folklore of jinn told throughout the story which would help an ordinary reader unfamiliar with them. I also love that Dimitri's family history was revealed and that we got to see how his family developed a genie bond. A perfect way to bring the book full circle which is always one of my favorite ways to end a book. Likes: Dimitri's sarcasm and sense of humor. I loved Syd's random bits of information about different mythology stories and the like. I like that Syd's identity and family history was slowly and very organically revealed in a way that fit her and Dimitri's relationship. The twists. Dislikes: A few grammar/spelling errors. I felt that there were too many romantic trysts between Dimitri and Syd and it really didn't add or help along anything in the story. Overall: Recommend? Yes! Reading the Next One? Yes! *I received this e-book for free via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Dimitri Hayes has to do whatever he is told. Why? Well, because he's a modern day genie. Obviously. As such, he has to listen to his "master," Karl Walker, or bad things tend to happen to him. To make matters more complicated, he doesn't have any magical powers. One would think that might give him a pass on the whole genie bond thing, well, think again. No, Dim just has to come up with creative ways to grant wishes. Sometimes, thermite is involved. This story starts with a bang, and the narrative explodes off the page. We meet Dimitri in the middle of granting one of Walker's wishes. He then goes to a bar to blow of some steam, because as he says, he really hates having to kidnap people. Who doesn't? Enter Syd, a woman he instantly wants to bang. She comes off flat in the beginning, but as Dim and the reader will soon learn, she's a little crazy. Good crazy. Women,especially women in their early twenties will be able to relate to this girl. Hell, we've probably all been this girl at one point. She was a welcome surprise, because not only is she fierce, she's intelligent and empathic. Unlike Silvia who is a different kind of crazy, and the next person in line to inherit Dimitri. He is constantly trying to ward off her advances and keep Syd at a distance while he's granting wishes that become more bizarre as the story advances. Then he has to face granting a wish that might just kill him. Boom! This story has everything. This is a mature read that can be enjoyed by a broad audience. Thoughtfully paced action, realistic yet edible romance, and jaw dropping creativity. A beautiful debut.

First book I have ever read about a genie(besides Disney). I have to admit, it was pretty awesome. I have read about witches, vampires, and werewolves, but genie is something new. It was very interesting I could not put it down. This is not a sunshine and roses romance, but the main character does fall in love. I like the way their love progresses, it is very realistic to the way a young couple would really act these days, that met the way these two met. I LOVE the twist at the end of the story it was great. Excellent story, loved it!!!!

Where the story of Dim begins. This fast paced thriller is a must read if you like a dark, relentless story that will keep you on the edge off your seat.

This is an excellent book! The main character is one of those guys you love to hate. Dimitri is down right bad and mean to everyone, but the people over him are even worse, which makes me feel sorry for him. He is such a complex character that I couldn't stop reading! I highly recommend this novel. Awesome characters, great story line, and something entirely unique!

If you wish paranormal fantasy had a little more Frankenstein and a little less Twilight, then Summoned is definitely the book for you. To be honest, I *like* Twilight, so it took me a little time to get into this book. After all, isn't a protagonist introduced while kidnapping a little girl the epitome of unlikable? I don't want to tell you anything else because it would ruin the plot. Suffice it to say that the plot is twisty, the world-building is unique, and by the end, you'll be thoroughly rooting for that kidnapper. I'm waiting with baited breath for book two!
