The idea of ‘Three Wishes’ is interesting. The beginning and the end of the book consist of the story about the men who run a fantasy island. In the middle there are three other stories – the ones about three wishes – of guest couples who come to the island to fulfill their wildest fantasies. From a kinky new relationship to an established Dom/sub relationship adding different elements to their play, and an established relationship discovering kink, this book has got it all.

4.5 stars. I think if you are a Sean Michael fan and like his style of writing you'll enjoy these 3 stories with a little extra backstory running about the guys managing the islands and fantasies. The book had kind of a Hammer feel to it with a little bit more edge than the Hammer books.

In the first story you have Benji and Thor. Benji is dealing with insecurities and decides to take a chance on a fantasy as a sub where he can receive some body modifications and be forced to submit. Thor is all

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is one hot read - in fact it is a bit like three hot reads and a mystery! Each of the men who is there to fulfil their fantasy gives us a kinky, sexy and yet meaningful adventure. Then we have the underlying trio, who set up the events, and yet are battling their own issues. Clearly there is a lot more to discover there, so I am looking forward to the next book.

I love Sean Michael's writing style. He has a sorta manic quality to his work. And wow does he know how to bring the heat. Never a disappointment on those aspects. With that being said, this wasn't quite what I was expecting. I was expecting a sexy story about 3 guys trying to make their relationship work going to a beautiful desert island where they ran a resort. What it actually is certainly is different. This read almost like an anthology.

It was so many different stories all over the place

I really enjoyed this book. Wonder if there is really a place like this? We got to see three couples and what their fantasies were. We also get to see Guard, James and Damien and parts of their dynamics. Each couple was fascinating I will have to say the couple with the medical kink was my favorite only because I think their “wish” was the one that was described the longest. One couple we only saw a few of the d
Apr 29, 2012 Allie rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
Some parts were OK but, if there hadn't been sex, there would probably have only been 5 pages of story throughout the book. After a while it tended to get repetitive and tedious. I would have been more interested to read about the 3 men who ran the island, to be honest, as long as there was storyline thrown in there among the sex scenes.
How many times have all of us, whether only as kids or even still as grown ups, hoped there was a way to make our wishes come true? Dreamed of fame and fortune, health or wealth, or the most elusive gift of all, True Love? Many a poet have sung in their sonnets of that magic moment when your deepest desires take shape and form in front of your eyes.

Now imagine someone was in the business of making your most depraved, your most secret, your most intense and uninhibited fantasies come true. Would

I'll round this one up to 4. It was really divided into 3 and a half stories. The half story being about the three men who run the island where for a large amount of money they can make a challenging fantasy a reality. I found their personal story very interesting and I'm guessing further books in this series will continue that. The other 3 stories involved the three "clients" who had come to have their fantasies fulfilled. All stories were m/m and all involved some level of BDSM.

I finished Three Wishes (Three Wishes, #1) by Sean Michael last night. I'm really not sure what to think about this book. It has a good concept/idea going...Couple and/or Singles can go to this Island and play out their fantasies.

This book feels like 4 (yup, I said 4) separate stories. We have the story of the men who run the Island and then the 3 couples/peoples fantasies that are to take place during the story.

You really don't have a whole lot of time to develop much of a feel for the characters, which is unfortunate. You get

3 and a half stories in one. Lots of different kink. Very short stories, but well developed and intriguing enough that I'd like to read more of any of them. Three men who run an island resort together (and are a threesome), try to make their relationship work while making the dream relationships of others become a reality. In one, they are finding the right coupling. In another, they are reviving an aging relationship. In the third, they are introducing a new dimension to an established relation ...more
The Novel Approach Reviews
Sean Michel has a great understanding of pairings, how to write about two separate men, and understanding how they could be better together. These short scenarios are great examples of that, showing three different “couples” and how they come together and then the underlying trio that sets it all up.

This is classic Sean Michael. For someone who has been reading his work for quite some time, it was great to go back and remind myself why I like him as an author so much. Three Wishes and its sequel

I love some kink in my reading so I was super stoked for this one after reading the blurb and I enjoy Sean's books.

Guard, James and Damien all own and operate an island resort that makes sexual fantasies come to life, partly because their own relationship is such a mess. James is wheelchair bound and has since cut Guard and Damien out of his life, at least romantically because he doesn't see himself as whole. Over the course of the book they do not resolve their issues which leave for carryover

I have to say that I was complete surprised by just go much I really enjoyed this book. I knew that it would be an erotic book but I love that each of the three fantasies had a story line behind them and each story line was different from the last.

If I had to choose whose was my favorite it would have been Benji and Thor. I enjoyed the other two couples fantasies but Benji and Thor did not know one another before hand and they just clicked from the start. It was like they had always been togethe

This book was great, but I’ve come to expect no less from Sean Michael. He writes primarily BDSM books (although he has written other types of books) but I do love his BDSM books. This book will definitely give you several different types of kink. I love how this author is able to eloquently write three total different types of stories of fantasy and combine it into one book. This book seems to have everything in it, from sweet to giving me my BDSM kinks. I have always loved Sean Michae

Author: Sean Michael
Rating: 4 Stars

I always think that reading novella length stories are the hardest to read because they always leave you wanting more, more story because the author could’ve expanded this scene or added a scene here to give you greater connection to the characters, greater understanding of the story and the emotion the author was going for. But then you have those rare ones that truly leave nothing out even though it is still not a novel length story. Does t

I was given this book for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.

Let me start this review by saying that I enjoy Sean Michael's books. This was no exception.

I think that it lost 1/2 a star from me because we only were really given the three wishes, but at the beginning of the story, there was so much more hinted at. Without more details or a resolution, I felt that this was
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.

Damien, James and Guard run a business that caters to your every fantasy. It will cost you a pretty penny but will be worth it. It's just a shame they can't sort out their own relationship as well as they can run their business.

Oh I LOVED this!! Its like 4 short stories all in one. And only ONE thing stops it from getting 5 stars but more on that in a moment.

Ahh! The way it ended was not cool at all, but I have to say the doctor segment was hot. I just realized how much this author uses the word "god" ALL the time. It's as bad as the overuse of "baby" in other reads. This read was very creative and hopefully the next one will have some results about James and his broken-ness.
Lisa ~ Books Are My Drugs ~
This book was like the gay kinky version of Fantasy Island. There are 3 short stories featuring 3 different couples who have paid a lot of money to have fantasies fulfilled.

The first story is with model Benji & body artist Thor. Benji is tired of living his model life & wishes to make his looks his own again. Thor is the artist who performs the body modifications, but the couple also end up being together at the end of their story.

The second story is with longtime Dom/sub couple Alan &am
Hot... I really liked the first story, but the other two are worth a 2nd read as well. We'll get to read more about the resort owners in sequels, but I would also like to read more about Benji and Thor.

I enjoyed this one for the most part even if I don't quite understand the whole Medical kink displayed with one of the couples. Also, with the body modification scenario, it was like there was a magically appearing condom. Things kept getting all sexy and then at the end it mentioned one of the guys filling the condom...but he never actually put it on beforehand. That started driving me a little crazy after a while. What I'd really like to see is more of the story between the three owners of

Pure Sean Michael -- lots of kinky sex accompanied by true love. If you are in the mood for that sort of thing, this was a fun read.

If money was no object and you could buy your deepest darkest fantasy would you?

James, Guard and Damien are certain to make all your fantasies come true on Rainbow Island. They can cater for virtually any desire and the kinkier the better.

The story revolves around three fantasies but also gives you a glimpse into the relationship between James, Guard and Damien and there is obviously a story there although the author doesn’t divulge much.

This story, actually these stories, left me wanting more. And not in a 'this wasn't enough' kind of way, but in an 'I would love to continue reading about these guys' kind of way. At the beginning and at the end, we get a glimpse into the lives of James, Guard and Damien. They run this fantasy type island where people pay them lots of money to make their darkest fantasy come true. And they are very good at their jobs. Everything is better than anyone could imagine. The setup is perfect, the isla ...more

So I should probably be giving this 4 stars but I figure for every section of the story that annoyed me I'm taking off a star.

So the first lost star comes from Alan and Roman's story. The constant "I love you's" and cavity enducing sweetness just turns my stomach. Not my thing.

Loss of second star comes from J, Guard and Dame themselves but not because of their story but because they had no story! Screw the three wishes I want to know what's happening with them.

My favorite wish was definitely
I liked these wish stories, sweet and interesting and hot!! And the three guys running the island are very intriguing. Wish I knew what was going on there.

I really enjoyed the story about Benji and Thor. Tattoos are great when done right, though some piercings just totally scare me :) But that's me... and Benji. He wants to take back control of his body after modeling so many years and having to eat right, exercise, don't get too much sun, remember to sleep on your back, etc. etc. etc. He just w
