Ever since Viola’s boyfriend broke up with her, she has spent her days silently wishing—to have someone love her again and, more importantly, to belong again—until one day she inadvertently summons a young genie out of his world and into her own. He will remain until she makes three wishes.
Jinn is anxious to return home, but Viola is terrified of wishing, afraid she will not wish for the right thing, the thing that will make her truly happy. As the two spend time together, the lines between master and servant begin to blur, and soon Jinn can’t deny that he’s falling for Viola. But it’s only after Viola makes her first wish that she realizes she’s in love with Jinn as well . . . and that if she wishes twice more, he will disappear from her life—and her world—forever.
Jackson Pearce spins a magical tale about star-crossed lovers, what it means to belong . . . and how important it is to be careful what you wish for.
I had high hopes for As You Wish and I can safely say that Jackson Pearce did not disappoint.
As You Wish is told in alternating chapters between Viola and Jinn. Jinn by the way is the name Viola calls him but he is really a jinn and has no name. Jackson Pearce kept me hooked onto As You Wish from the first page. Viola has this fresh honest voice which I love. Her thoughts and feelings were evident and heartfelt. Reading the book in Jinn’s POV gave me a good idea on how he was feeling and his intentions.
Character development for both Jinn and Lawrence were exceptionally good. The time the three of them spent together were the best moments in the book. Jackson Pearce did an marvelous job weaving the story together and capturing the emotions perfectly. The story was witty and very very funny. Fantastic characters.
The ending was good, not too cliche. I don’t want to give away too much of the plot but overall, it was a memorable sweet book which I definitely recommend to everyone.
I look forward to reading Jackson Pearce’s future books. As You Wish is the type of book that stays in your head for a long time after reading it. I simply loved it!
