Synopsis from Goodreads:
Nick's life was perfect. He was a successful businessman-and just as successful with the ladies. He had everything he wished, or so he thought. Then a lovely magical creature shook up his world and made him rethink what he valued. Amira wanted only one thing-to escape the curse of the djinn. She had served many selfish masters through the millennia. Her hope was that one day a Master would discover the way to give her freedom. Her new Master was a shock. He was darkly handsome, just like her long-dead lover Omar. However, it didn't take long for Nick to show his true colors as a charming but uncommitted playboy. But Amira gradually discovers admirable qualities in her Master, in spite of his self-centered lifestyle. Maybe it was Nick's physical similarity to Omar that drew her so strongly to him, but she isn't content to play out the typical djinn/Master role. Amira is determined to teach her Master there is more to life than physical lust and fulfillment. Every time Nick makes a wish, Amira twists it in surprising ways. Although irritated at his beautiful genie for her tricks, he becomes more drawn to her sweet nature. Each wish he asks for is filled with hot women and wild sex-wishes most men would consider a dream come true. But Nick soon finds himself desiring just one woman's love-his genie.
Nour provides a hot and steamy setting all the way through, making the book very enticing to read and enjoy. Nick goes through a variety of personality shifts throughout the book. He starts off cocky but later becomes much nicer and then shifts back to his original attitude, giving off a conflicting impression. In contrast to Nick, Amira is a much more believable and relatable character, having a great sense of humor despite centuries of captivity as a genie, granting her master’s sexual desires. Throughout everything Nour does a superb job having both characters learn to come together to save one another from their own solitude.
I was provided a copy of the book by BTS eMag for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review – all conclusions are my own responsibility.
About the Author:
Myra Nour grew up reading s/f, fantasy, and romance, so she was really thrilled when these elements were combined in Futuristic Romances. She enjoys writing within all these elements, whether the hero is a handsome man from another planet, or a tiny fairy from another dimension. Myra’s background is in counseling, and she likes using her knowledge to create believable characters. She also enjoys lively dialogue and, of course, using her imagination to create other worlds with lots of action/adventure, as well as romance. She uses her handsome husband as inspiration for her heroes - he is a body builder, a soldier, and has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
