He can grant her wishes, but only she can save his life.
Margo McKenna has a plan for just about everything, from landing the
lead in her high school play to getting into a good college. So when she
finds herself in possession of a genie's ring and the chance to make
three wishes, she doesn't know what to do. Why should she put her life
into someone else's hands?
But Oliver is more than just a genie
-- he's also a sophomore at Margo's high school, and he's on the run
from a murderer. As he and Margo grow closer, she discovers that it
will take more than three wishes to save him.
A whole lot more.
4 stars - Fun magic and kissing, what could be better?
Genies? Really. Love that idea. Love the idea of how they come into being. Love how it fits so nicely into a modern and normal life - like they could be there hanging around and I'd never know. The premise is fun and different. The mind reading thing makes things interesting. The bad genie dude is interesting. Just loved the story.
Oliver. Loved him. I can't tell you the things about him that I want to for fear of spoiling things but I love how real he really is. And green eyes! He has green eyes. I can say that I love how he approaches his magic. His desire to get wishes right, his hope to make the lives better of those he serves, his pride in his work...I loved all those things about him. He's sweet and kind. AND I loved how despite not falling for others in the past, he falls for Margo. It's sweet.
Margo is interesting. I like how she thinks things through and figures things out. She probably over thought the age thing and maybe the other thing that I can't really say but I liked her. She didn't fall all over Oliver but came to love him. I loved that she kissed him the first time. You go girl.
This one's quick and easy. A comfortable, satisfying read after some emotional ones I've read lately. Just what I needed. If you like a little paranormal in your romance or a little romance in your paranormal, then this is a great choice.
