Woo! The very first 12 Books of Christmas meme! Let me quickly say that these are not book reviews, these are featured books. I will be showing a book that I want others to read and I'll explain why. The first book featured on the 12 Books of Christmas is... *drum roll*
Three Wishes by Kristen Ashley
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.
I am a MAJOR Kristen Ashley (KA) fan. If she writes it, I read it. I have prepared a few of questions for myself for the 12 Books of Christmas, so here we go!
Have you read this book? If so, what rating would you give it? If not, why do you want to read it?
YES! As you can tell from my I-love-KA attitude, I will read any book that she writes. Some books I haven't liked as much as others, there's only been one book that I didn't really like that she's written – and she's written A LOT!
This book I loved very much, and I would give it 4.5 stars!
Why did you pick this book as one of your twelve this Christmas?
Because everyone should read at least one of KA's books! Her books are filled with macho men (always) and strong-willed women (most of the time). And there's always, always love. True love. Love that makes you cry and love that makes you smile. That's why I chose this book.
What's the age limit for this book?
This book, as do all of KA's books, contains semi-graphic to graphic sexual content. Therefore, this book is for people 18 years and up. However, let me say, that most (exempting the Unfinished Hero series) of KA's books are not at all centered around sex, so I would be lenient and say that maybe 16 and up.
