I really, really loved this book. I thought the idea was great and different, the wishes that Jade chose were unique, and I really adored Archias and Jade's relationship. Emery was a great friend too. I don't want to say anything that gives away the ending or major plot points, so all I will say is that I truly enjoyed this book from start to may be my favorite thing I have ever read from this author! Highly recommended!

I think this book was one of Ms Evans better books. I saw Jade as more of a lonely lost boy who just wanted someone to love him for who he was. A good pool hustler, Jade won a genie in a bottle from one of his biggest rivals. It was the usual genie and wish bit except in this story Jade got four wishes and had to use them within 90 days of his first wish. The genie, Archias, was a huge man who had been used for his wishes and cast aside. Jade was different though and treated Archias like a norm ...more
It just was not captivating or innovative enough and instant-lust as well, with a WTF moment.

A genie in a bottle, who can grant four wishes and there is a deadline three month. Jade wins Archias in a pool game and falls in love with the genie in the bottle. Of course he wants to set him free! Predictable, right?

Then there is a crazy,stalker, the genies previous owner who wants Jade to be his.

The story is basicly about how to free Archias and them falling in love, with the stalker and an annoying
typical gabrielle evans serial romance. nothing fantastic, nothing so bad it can't be finished. what is typical gabrielle evans? imagine a shorter harlequin romance but with no t&a (see, i was going to write no surprise pregnancies, but... yeah.).

out of sheer laziness, i will be using this as my template for all books by :

unless otherwise noted. i'd apologize, but i'm not sorry. i figure it's about as much time as the
This could have been one of my favourite Gabrielle Evans but it never quite made it there. The premise was very original and I enjoyed both characters but there were too many inconsistencies. Such as the fact that all of Jade’s friends hated him for absolutely no reason, since he’s supposed to be so kind, sweet and generous. Or how he was inexplicably immune to Archias’ previous owner’s irresistibleness except for the time he almost cheated on Archias with said ex-owner, of course. Which was bas ...more

I have a confession to make, I only bought this book because I find the cover fascinating, I'm not into this kind of stories (Genies, making wish) and I was really surprise that I enjoyed it.
Archias was a beautiful, gorgeous character.
Jade Blevins is a pool shark and wins a bottle while hustling tables at the bars. Inside he discovers a gorgeous Thessalian Greek warrior with the ability to grant 4 wishes. You see how the author already is keeping us on our toes with 4 wishes instead of 3??

Jade and Archias have 90 days to use Jade's wishes and in those 90 days a romance blooms. However, after the final wish, Archias must return to the bottle and darkness until he gets a new master. Only a wish of selfless love can set him free
Jade was more selfish than he seemed at first (not so much the near-cheating, but to betray Archias with some one Jade himself couldnt stand was off). He then stranded Emery, who I so want a story about. Some things didn't get explained, like how the cowboy Quinton got hold of Emery, why Quinton was obsessed with Jade even with his wish fulfilled and why Jade even considered hanging out with people who treated him the way his "friends" did. That being said, it was sweet and cute, and Archias sou ...more

Apart from a couple of strange inconsistencies I enjoyed this easy to read novel. Archias, the god-like genie Jade frees from his bottle prison is super hot, and fun. I couldn't quite understand why Jade was disliked by so many people, and his best friend Emery who stand by while Jade is insulted, didn't come across as any best friend I'd want, but in all it's enjoyable, and that's the main thing.
**Re-read the new Siren version and omg, I loved it more than the first original version. Haha! I actually really liked how she completely updated it to match the current year. (which is now last year but still, updated to "modern day" 2012)


now I really will read the second. lol... <3 Love~

I found this to be..........boring~~~~
It takes forever to have any real type of action.. they are getting to know each other sexually and otherwise slowly.. the antagonist of the story I found to be unimaginative and boring as well. I liked that it got a happy ending by the end but just too blah for me
Michi Rosa
A nice and simple story about greek gods and selfless men.
I didn't like a tiny little part where it all almost went down the hill... but (thk God) it ended up alright. [misterious me :)]

Funny funny end - made me laugh!

Ms. Evans wrote great love scenes, and still managed to keep the emotional aspect ratcheted up. To read this review in its entirety, please visit
This is not the typical genie in the lamp/bottle story. The love between these characters is visible and believable, with interesting friends and enemies. The magic is reasonable as well.
I thought it was one of her better stories (compared to say, some of the Midnight Matings, etc) and I enjoyed it.
Marsha Spence
I really enjoyed this story. Good plot, interesting characters.

Gabrielle Evans grew up in a small town in southern Oklahoma. We’re talking one red light that may or may not work depending on the day of the week. She married her high school sweetheart and the rest is pretty much history. They have two very active boys and one high-strung wiener dog that keeps her constantly on the go. For now, Gabrielle parks her car in north-central Texas, but who knows what ...more
