I found A. Star’s Wish For Me on Netgalley and when I started it I couldn’t put it down. This story is totally enthralling from beginning to end. I loved the characters, the imagery, and dialogue between the characters. Although the ending did have a cliffhanger it was done in such a good way I had no problem ordering the next installment in the series.

BOOK REVIEW: Wish For Me BOOK SERIES: The Djinn Order, Act One AUTHOR: A. Star, pen name for Diantha Jones GENRE: New-Adult, Romance, Paranormal Romance, Fantasy, Steampunk, Magic RELEASE DATE: April 23, 2015 CLIFF HANGER: Yes Reviewed by: Beth at Mom’s Cooking the Books Blog The disclaimer that the author wrote made me laugh out loud and I knew this book was for me. I love an author with a sense of humor! Quote from the author, “WARNING: Not suitable for ages 18 and under. A significant source of bad language, sexy times, and dirty jokes. If you suffer from a lack of sense of humor, take with plenty of wine. If the symptom persists, see a doctor.” Let me start off with I really enjoyed this book, I read it in a day! It was a fun fantastical read and I have never read this type of romance book before. I discovered a new genre, Steampunk. What is Steampunk? Here is the definition from Dictionary.com “Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction and fantasy featuring advanced machines and other technology based on steam power of the 19th century and taking place in a recognizable historical period of a fantasy world.” By reading that I would say hmm, not interested. But I went in with an open mind and I really fell in love this type of story. This is the first time I have read this author’s work and it won’t be the last. If you enjoy a book with magic, fantasy, mystery, suspense, incredible creative machines, snarky banter, an incredibly sexy genie, a strong sassy heroine, a story of two lovers with one destiny; then this is the book for you. Wish For Me is story about a snarky college student, Glory St. Pierre and her gorgeous Djinn/Genie, Irving Amir. Glory finds his vase in her grandmother’s basement and unaware of what this vase was, she summoned her genie and the adventure began. Throughout the book you are transported between dimensions and see robotic mythical creatures, fight robotic automaton’s. There are secrets, lies and deception. There are sexy times and tender moments between the characters. There are twists and turns that you don’t see coming and the story is a puzzle that keeps unfolding. The end leaves the reader with a crazy cliffhanger, but it just makes you want to read more. The second book is out, Dream Of Me and the third book, Yearn For Me is scheduled to release in August of 2016. So far, it looks like there are going to be five books. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. I now have a new genre to discover, Steampunk, who knew. ARC kindly provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

*4.5 Stars* Wish For Me sparked a little curiosity in me with the whole genie in a lamp and three wishes. I assumed it would be sort of like Aladdin but I had no idea I was going to like it this much. It's not the kind of book I would normally pick out, but once in a while I like to shake things up and deviate from my preferred genres. This goes to show that you should definitely venture out of your comfort zone more often. I never would've guessed that the "genie" or the Djinn would be so extremely swoonworthy! I liked the heroine a lot too (except for a couple of occasions when she needed to be smacked in the head). She was feisty and funny and I liked that. The plot reminded me a bit of Rebel Belle, only sooo much better. This was one of those books where incredible things happen yet somehow, it's not hard to believe it at all. Glory is so down to earth and normal and the way the author presents the story makes it feel like it's really happening. We also encounter some twists along the way that make for a great overall read. The only downside for me was that I got quite confused at the end. I had to go back and re-read several pages a few times because I didn't understand the ending. Maybe we'll get a better explanation in the next book since it was sort of a cliffhanger or maybe it was just me who didn't get it. Either way, this was a pretty wonderful book -it was fast-paced and it kept my interest the whole time. *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

One word of warning... cliffhanger. The fact that it ends in a cliffhanger is the only thing that I didn't like about it. Glory St. Pierre is the mouthy & f-bomb dropping young woman who just happens to find a vase that was hidden away in her deceased grandmother's basement. A vase that is not a vase, but a lamp... a lamp with a genie in it. Irving Amir is the hard ass (and hard bodied) Djinn that detests the word "genie" almost as much as he disdains humans. What happens when two hard headed and strong personalities from two different worlds collide? Sparks! Sparks that lead to the two of them having to deal with what they feel for each other and the danger that's coming for both of them. I've never read a "steampunk" themed story before, but I truly enjoyed this one. I thought it had a great story line that moved well. Yes, Glory curses a lot and drops quite a few f-bombs, but it fits her character and is a great mirror for the stuffiness Irving has at times. This story kept me hooked until the very end. The cliffhanger made me growl, but I'll be picking up the second one very soon.

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review What would you expect to find when cleaning out your batty grandmother’s basement? Glory certainly didn’t expect to take home a memento that would change the course of her life forever. In Wish for Me, The Djinn Order, Act One, Glory finds what looks like a thin necked vase with a keyhole and a key in the bottom of a box, taking it home she begins the adventure of anyone’s life. Wish for Me is a modern urban fantasy love story, a young woman in college that finds that fantasy meshes with reality as she uses a key and unlocks a special future. The bottle is actually a magic lamp, that holds a Djinn, Irving. When she first summons him Irving is rude, to say the least, to say the most he is extremely attractive. He explains how she is now his master and will control him until she makes her wishes. Wanting to make the best decisions, she doesn’t wish for anything at first, but finds herself bored and wanting his company.  The book moves through the development of a hate to love relationship between Glory and Irving.  Attraction leads to an almost friendship, but when Irving is attacked he comes to Glory and they find that they are more than attracted, they are falling in love. When he believes her life in danger through an accidental wish used, he takes her to his world and suddenly she is embroiled in politics, and magic the likes she has never imagined.  As their relationship grows she discovers the depth of his secrets and begins to wonder if she can trust him at all. Life is strange in that, even when keeping things from her, she still cares enough to try. It is not until they begin to unravel some of the threats to his realm that she realizes betrayal comes in many flavors. I give Wish for Me four stars. I enjoyed the development of the relationship, but would have enjoyed seeing more between them in many ways. The relationship happens so suddenly I found myself reading back to see if I missed something that would have clued me in more, and once the sex started, it was so well written I would have liked to have had more of it. Wish for Me is not very long, but I think slightly more development in these areas would have gotten that extra star from me. I am looking forward to Act Two because Act One has me hooked.

Imagine you are going through your grandmother’s things and find this odd-looking antique with a keyhole. Glory St. James knows the second she lays eyes on it that it is unusual. She stashes it in her bag and once home, discovers the most outrageous thing inside. A genie. More precisely, a hotter than hot djinn named Irving asking her for her three wishes. He’s annoying as much as he’s gorgeous and Glory baits him as much as possible. Not making her wishes, she wants to get to know him better. Little does she know, she’s about to enter a world she’s not ready for. Things get complicated faster than you can say wish and Glory has no choice but to go along with Irving’s plan. Steamy sex, mechanical toys and a plot to overthrow the Sultan ensue. Just when I think the book can’t get any better, it ends on a cliff hanger. ARGH! WARNING: There is a lot of swearing and cursing in this book! I loved this story and can’t wait for more from A. Star. She has a talent for creating epic stories with characters I can relate to. The world-building was right on and the story played out like a movie while I was reading. An inventive plot along with plenty of smokin’ hot sex scenes makes this one a winner! My Rating: 4 stars Favorite Character: The mechanical bat. I know what’s you’re thinking… didn’t you just love the snarkiness of Glory? I did like her but I could’ve done without the constant swearing. Every other word out of her mouth was cursing. I loved how adorable the mechanical bat was and how it brought both Glory and Irving together.
