Glory immediately develops an infatuation with Irving and wanting to prolong their time together she vows to be careful with her wishes. Unfortunately Irving is being hunted and Glory finds herself in the middle of a world she never kn

Wish for Me was simply fanastic! I think I had read two books about Djinn before but it wasn't until this book that I felt like yeah, I need to read more books with them (or author's need to write more with them). I was pretty sure I was going to like this book but I hadn't expected to love it this much from start to ending. Just... amazing!

This story is about Glory St. Pierre who chances upon what she thinks i

So there is Glory helping her mum and aunt sought through all the rubbish left in her late grandmothers basement . It's hot , dirty work and there's very little 'treasure' to be found. Well Glory has found a cute hat and that weird metal thing with a key but that's about it. Glory goes home turns the key in the perculiar vase type thing only to discover it's just a music box oh well time to sleep .

The first part really hooked me but after 45%, it kinda depressed me. It was the same with the other PNR romance that I've been reading. What I thought as a light fun read turned into a having full blown secrets with some drama.

Gah. Give me a break.

*I received a free ecopy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

When I started the book, my initial thoughts were, ok, it's not quite my type of book, but it's enjoyable enough that I'm willing to overlook the tropes I don't like and accept the story. But then, as the story progressed, it became more and more romance-y. It's not that I don't like romance in the books I read, it's just that I've had a hard time with paranormal romance lately because I'm no

3.5 stars — I had a few problems with this book, but it really was a fun read! I had never read a book about Djinns before, and it surely was a lot of fun and a breath of fresh air! I was absolutely captivated by all the Djinn world and the magical atmosphere (kinda Aladdin's style), but unfortunately I wasn't as into the characters.

Wish For Me sparked a little curiosity in me with the whole genie in a lamp and three wishes. I assumed it would be sort of like Aladdin but I had no idea I was going to like it this much. It's not the kind of book I would normally pick out, but once in a while I like to shake things up and deviate from my preferred genres. This goes to show that you should definitely venture out of your comfort zone more often. I never would've guessed that the "genie" or the Djinn would be so extrem

Wish for Me by A. Star is the first instalment in The Djinn Order series. It is an action-packed steampunk, adult, fantasy and romance novel.
The novel is narrated in the first person by Glory St. Pierre, who seems rebellious but is plain obnoxious. Glory stumbles on a strange looking vase which turns out is more of a genie or Djinn lamp. The contraption, nothing like the lamp Aladdin finds, houses the Djinn Irving Amir, who gives Glory the chance to make three wishes. The two characters start ou

I'm going to start this off by fan-girling over my new favorite author. I came across this book as I was looking for a genie (although I shouldn't say genie, according to Irving) book & the blurb caught my eye. It's a must read, people!! Why? The author holds nothing back. She reels you in this story with highly developed characters, witty banter, and a plot with some really great twists there at the end. I lo

This book is almost steampunk meets Djinn meets modern day. The combinations in fresh, interesting and keeps you intrigued. I am not a huge fan of instant love, but I will admit that A. Star knows how to write it well. Glory is no wilting flower and has some great banter if slightly cheesy at times.

I was able to foresee some of the conflict in the book, but I will happily admit that the ending is not what I expected. If I have any complaints, it would be that there are two plot lines of conflict

This is the story of Glory St. Pierre who finds a lamp and a key in her grandmother's basement. When she turns the lock in and nothing happens, she goes to asleep. Only to be awoken by a hot, sexy djinn with an attitude. With three wishes in hand, Glory is determined to make them last and count. And the fact that Irving is forced to stay with her, something that irritates him to no end, is a bonus for Glory. But when Glory accidentally wis

After Glory St Pierre takes possession of an odd vase with mechanical gears, she lands herself with an unexpected slave – a genie. Irving Amir hates being called a genie – he’s a djinn – and he’s none too fond of the human race either, letting no time pass before he makes Glory aware of this fact.
Well Glory can give as good as she gets, and although her djinn is hotter-than-hot sex-on-legs, she isn’t about to let him treat her like a piece of dirt.
So starts a fiery relationship, with layers of s

Wish For Me has such an interesting collaboration of genres that I’ve never experienced before. I haven’t read a book with a genie (*ahem* djinn, sorry) in it since I was a kid, and I’ve definitely never seen it mixed in with Steampunk! It worked surprisingly well. Whereas steampunk is all about steam powered mechanics, Djinn are about magic. Together, they make great chemistry.

The characters have their own kind of chemistry, although I admit I was skeptical at first. I mean, if a man (no matter

When I read the synopsis for Wish For Me, I was definitely intrigued. I've always been fascinated by djinn, and very rarely do I read stories about them. I will admit I'm not a huge fan of steampunk, but after finishing the story, I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was, and I am definitely looking forward to the sequel.

Glory, the main character, is a bit sarcastic, but likeable. She's your typical college-age young woman...until she finds a very strange vase. Upon opening said vase, she r

Glory just wanted to get through college. She never expected to find a lamp in her grandmother's basement. A lamp that summons an Djinn with a hot temper and an even hotter bod. As if things weren't complicated enough for Glory, a league of Djinn hunters attack her new companion thrusting her into the world of Djinns and a war that has been raging for centuries.

This book is funny, exciting, and down right dirty. I loved

This was such an interesting and fun book. As soon as I read the synopsis I was intrigued, a genie who grants wishes and then falls in love with a human? Straight away that sounded like something I wanted to read. Genies aren't something I've read a lot about, but after this I definitely want to read more!

I really liked Glory as a character. She’s really likeable and I enjoyed seeing where her story went. There’s lots of witty dialogue between her

Other than the Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes movies, I'm not a huge fan of Steampunk. I've also never sought out stories of djinn (genies) because, in general, paranormal is not my thing. But I am a huge fan of A. Star aka Diantha Jones, so I devoured this release. And ooh!

Glory St Pierre isn't just sassy- she's snarky and self-confident, and not easily bullied. So if Irving Amir has a problem with human beings, that's just too damn bad, especially if he's obliged to grant *her* wishes. If only he

Honestly, when I first got this book I was so excited to read it. The whole concept of the book was enough for me to pick it and start reading it straight away. However, by the end I was left feeling quite mellow. Instead of having an addictive journey, it was more of trying to convince myself it was exciting. I found it quite hard to finish the book. The characters felt quite flat and I did not see much of a development in them. I tried my best to find some quality in the characters that I coul ...more

This is Glory's story and how she met her Djinn Irving. After her grandma passes she and her family are cleaning out her basement when she finds a funny looking vase. She hides it and takes it home she uses the key to open it but all it does is make music. And when she wakes to a handsome man beside her bed she does not even scream. But not sure why, but he i

I loved reading this book. I have not read about a Djinn before (I'm usually into reading paranormal, sci-fi and fantasy) and this one just blew me away. I'm a huge fan of smart mouthed, sassy women with witty comebacks and Glory dished out a lot of those. The story starts to pick up in the middle and there's a lot of action (in the bedroom and combat), royalty, secrets, surprise twists and much more. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series! It makes me think of an adult version of ...more

It has been quite some time since a djinn tale has captured by attention so thoroughly. The suspense and intrigue kept me flipping these pages happily through its stunning conclusion! To say I didn’t see it coming is a vast understatement! Love this storyline, love theses characters, and happily already have act two loaded onto my kindle! Well done!

I was given an arc copy of this book in return for an honest review. I enjoyed the storyline and the characters and the book had a twist at the end which of course leads into the second book of the series. If you like fantasy and paranormal genres you will enjoy the book. The only negative was that the book was too short being only 173 pages.

When the Glory St. Pierre finds an old vase type object in her grandmother’s basement she takes interest in the fact that it appears mechanical in nature. She had no idea that the lamp was in reality a Djinn chronolier aka genie lamp.

A. Star is a fan of dirty passion. She loves to read it, and she damn sure loves to write it. She is the author of the Mythos: Gods & Lovers series, the Djinn Order series, and the Knights of the Joust series. She is a night-owl and a coffee junkie, and the only sneaker she would be caught dead wearing are Converses.
