Title: In Love With My Djinn

Author: Nicki Pascarella

Genre: Steamy Romantic Comedy with a Fantasy Twist

Book Blurb:

After catching her fiancé in a compromising position, a heartbroken Regina Reynolds calls off her wedding last minute. Instead, she spends her beach honeymoon with her eccentric grandmother, a fake service dog, and her goofy best friend. As if this isn’t a sharp enough stab at her aching heart, the social media muckraker she caught her ex-fiancé with is snooping in her private life and trying to steal her journalism job.

Then there’s the infuriating Middle Eastern man who follows her home from a walk on the beach. He makes a home in her bathtub and endears himself to her companions by entertaining them with Scheherazade-like stories. Fazil watches Regina with his spectacular smoldering eyes, goes to war with her ex, and does everything within his power to cheer her up. Unfortunately, he also calls her “Master” and insists that she make ten wishes so he can be set free from his twelve-hundred-year-old curse. The crazy situation provides her camera-carrying stalker with extra ammunition in her quest to destroy Regina’s life. And so, no matter how much this mountain of muscles sends tingles to her toes, she can’t fall for this bizarre man—unless he really is a sexy, magical genie?

My Review:

Looking for a rollicking good time? Stop what you’re doing and read this book. In Love With My Djinn is Bridget Jones meets I Dream of Jeannie with a sexy modern twist. Nicki Pascarella delivers a hilarious rom com where the hero is a genie and the heroine snaps at him at every turn. The chemistry is off the charts. The dialogue and banter are fast, funny, and flirty. In Love With My Djinn is an unputdownable steamy read.

What makes this book a delight are the characters. There’s Regina, of course, who acts in a very realistic way. Many women will relate to her plight. Then there are her BFF, her wacky grandmother, her ex-fiancé, and the hot guy who says he’s a djinn. A full cast of characters, each one zanier than the next. The character development of Regina is well-written with precision. The characters propel the plot and make for an enjoyable reading experience.

The descriptive narration and setting are immersive and create a lush backdrop for this romance. Each scene is described in vivid detail.

The romance is classic romantic comedy with a fantasy twist. The romantic tension takes awhile to amp up but when it does, wowza. The romantic banter between the hero and heroine makes In Love With My Djinn a must-read.

Escape to a tropical getaway with this book and all your wishes will come true.
