Review: Her Wish (Playboy Genie #1) by Sophie H. Morgan

"Her Wish is fun, charming, and OMG, why haven't I been reading Genie romances before now? Sophie H. Morgan's wit and imagination made me an instant fan. I want a Genie of my own!" - New York Times bestselling author Larissa Ione

This playboy has finally met his match...

Charlie’s sick of Genies. Too beautiful, too sure of themselves, too "celebrity". And way too eager to grant wishes in the worldwide Lottery that entices mortals into buying tickets in the hope of winning their desires. Charlie would rather walk naked through Times Square than buy a ticket. Unfortunately, her friend springs for one in Charlie’s name – and it gets picked. She refuses to get sucked in and has no qualms about saying so to the famously arrogant, devilishly handsome Genie at her door. Sexy Blue Eyes will just have to take no for an answer.

Jax Michaels would love to take no for an answer. As the most famous Genie on the East Coast, known for his sex appeal, his cheeky interviews, and his roguish style of granting wishes, he only has to turn to the next in line to find a willing partner. After all, every woman wants him – except, apparently, Charlie Donahue, who throws back his charming words, sneers at his calculated grins, and refuses to even consider wishing. Jax isn't a fool. He’s prepared to wash his hands of this infuriating, appealing female…until his Handler informs him that quitting is not an option. And if he can’t talk her into wishing, Jax will have to try playing a little dirty.

"Morgan’s debut takes a romance trope (plain Jane heroine/gorgeous rich hero), adds a dash of fantasy and a sprinkling of humor, and pulls the reader into the entertaining start of a new series (although it stands solidly on its own)" - Library Journal

Wow! Just Wow!  Her Wish is the first book I have read with a Genie and I loved it!  Sophie H. Morgan has an interesting concept with this book!  I wasn’t sure what to expect going in, but I have to say Genie’s are cool!  Yes, they are gorgeous. Yes, they are arrogant. Yes, they are celebrity’s in their own right.  Who wouldn’t love a Genie’s when their mission in life is to grant people wishes???

There is a worldwide lottery that mortals buy tickets for in hopes of being picked to receive a wish of their choice. Jax Michaels is the face of Wish For You’s, the drop dead gorgeous Genie tasked with granting Charlie Donahue’s wish when her name is pulled from the bucket of tickets.  Only she didn’t buy a ticket. She doesn’t trust Genies. Her best friend Kate bought the ticket and put her name on it.  When Charlie’s distrust of Genies comes out and doesn’t want her wish, Jax pulls out all the stops to get her to wish.  All the women love him, so why doesn’t she?? In fact, she’s down-right snarky! Jax isn’t stupid. He doesn’t need this crap, until his Handler says he must get her to wish and he can’t quit until he does. Charlie intrigues him a bit, so Jax decides he has to up his game!

I totally fell for Jax! He was all that and then some! But he also has a sweet and very caring side.  As much as Charlie believes Genies can’t be trusted, he believes they have only done good deeds.  He sets to show her she’s misguided and I love his tactful assault on her! He was so likeable I was surprised Charlie held out as long as she did! Charlie is a smart cookie and due to her childhood, she lives by her own rules, not taking anything for granted.  She’s worked hard for what she has and isn’t going to wish for something and be saddled with an unfortunate fall out. People are understandably flabbergasted when she refuses to wish-both good and bad. I understand where she was coming from, but I also felt she should’ve wished for something she could’ve gave someone else if she didn’t want to use it for herself-like a dog shelter or homeless shelter. But that would’ve been too easy and Charlie hasn’t had anything easy in her life.

Chemistry. We need to talk about the sizzling chemistry between these two! Yikes! It was literally scorching my fingers from my kindle!!  All the innuendos and witty banter turned up the heat! Once Charlie gave into to Jax’s seduction, she was a vixen let loose! Whew! Get me some water!!

I loved Her Wish! It’s very unique and has a great, thought out storyline! I think it’s one that you’ll want to get your greedy little paws on yourself!  The Playboy Genie series is off to a great start!  I can’t wait to read the next in the series! If it’s anything like this one, it’s going to be a great read!!
