If I could wish for one thing, it would be to have never met my ex. He took my money, cheated on me, and saddled me with an impossible mortgage.
Now, just as I’m fighting to put my life back together, I find an unusual bottle with a note inside: “You get one wish. Make it count.” Har har. Someone’s idea of a joke?
But nothing could prepare me for what comes next or for the screamin’ hot man with piercing blue eyes who shows up at my door, making demands.
I should slam the door in his sex-god face, because this guy has trouble written all over him. But I can’t. Suddenly I do have a wish…
My rating: 4 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Wish by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff was not a premise that I’ve read before. It is described by the author as contemporary romance. However, I found myself wondering throughout the first half of the book whether or not this could be Paranormal/fantasy. The author entertained me and kept me guessing because while this book is definitely of the contemporary genre, there are magical and whimsical elements throughout the pages. I found myself trying to unravel the mystery that is the hero, Marus. The reveal is slow and steady. And during all the information brought forth to me, I still wondered, “Is this guy for real?” I would definitely admit the author kept me engaged.
I thought this book was imaginative and fun, until it wasn’t. That said, there are some dark moments that come to light during the last chapters and because of that Marus became someone I didn’t like. Don’t worry, he does redeem himself and there is a beautiful happy ending. But I’m afraid to say, even with that ending, I couldn’t forget Marus’ actions or the hurtful words he spoke to Ginnie. I’m sorry to say, it bothered me a lot. In addition, another element of the book I was disappointed with was the lapse of time between the “incident” and the reconciliation. Also, I really wished this book was written in dual POV; I would have loved to be inside Marus’ head. Hey, that’s just my personal opinion and you may very likely not feel the same. Mimi Jean is a great story teller and I read several of her books prior to Wish which I enjoyed very much. Just because this book hit a bump for me doesn’t mean I hated it. I did enjoy it right up to almost the end. And as this is a fun and original premise, I recommend it. And as I mentioned, there were only a couple of aspects that disappointed me, personally. You might be fine with them.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
