As You Wish was a cute, teen romance that worked very well as a standalone. I'm really glad, however, that Jackson Pearce wrote this story about Lawrence. He was probably my favorite character in As You Wish, and I'm really glad we got to see a little bit more of him!

Love comes when you least expect it!!! sculptor guy...fake gay actor guy...sort-of gay guy and female jinn... perfect combination!!!

Did not really like this one, it wasn’t bad just not that interesting.
PS. Did not know this was a short story in a series.
