Daisy had no idea what was in store for her when she uncovered the priceless reward concealed in a miscellaneous bottle; a super sexy genie that would pull the rugs below her feet.

Khalil Muwahid, the genie owed Daisy his gratitude for freeing him from the trap. He generously asked her for three wishes without holding any grudges against her. Gradually there was a strong connection between them, the bond of love.

Also, the rules of Djinn world were amended for their love, where Daisy wasn't supposed to ask for the third wish since they could be together, everlastingly.

BUT on the horns of Dilemma, Darren, Daisy's best friend's life was at threat. Does she use the last wish to save Darren? Or does she save her love?

Introduction:

The copy of this book was provided me by the author in exchange for an honest review. So at first, I would like to thank her. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Who doesnโ€™t want a genie? Like we had seen in the Aladdin, who can fulfill our wishes. After reading the blurb of the book I was quite amazed thinking how anyone can fall in love with a genie. (For me genie is always the genie of Aladdin :P) but here the author has created an unusual plot. Letโ€™s check it out.

Plot summary:

The story is set in the Canada, where Daisy is broken by the death of her grandmother. Her grandmother is the sole parent Daisy has ever loved since her parents are divorced and she is nurtured by her grandma. Losing her was the biggest loss in Daisy’s life.

Daisyโ€™s grandmother has left a scroll saying her to open her treasure box. Knowing that this is the last wish of her grandma, she founds a beautiful bottle in treasure box which accidentally slips from her hand and broke into pieces. This is where Daisy meets her genie.

His name is Khalil and he asks Daisy to grant three wishes so that he can be finally free. But during all these Khalil started loving her and she also started loving him. He does everything which pleases Daisy. Slowly and steadily she overcomes from the grief of her grandmother. For their love sake, the rules of jinn world get changed in a condition that she will never ask her third wish.

The story takes an unpredictable turn when Daisyโ€™s best friend Darren diagnosed with Cancer. He is struggling with death and life.ย  Daisy, having granted her two wish already decides to use her third wish. But if Daisy asks the third wish then she will lose Khalil and if she doesnโ€™t ask then she will lose Darren.

Read this book to know which decision Daisy takes? And the story doesnโ€™t end here and I am eagerly waiting for the next part.

Writing style:

The book is written with so much ease that you feel like you are listening to a fairy tale from your grandmother. The pace of the story is very nice and you can finish this book in good three hours.

My perception:

I simply loved this story. What I love most about this story is beautiful love between Khalil and Daisy. The author has beautifully written this book with amazing narration skill.ย  This book is full of emotions, love, and hope. There are very few characters in this book but the author has brilliantly developed a story round them. This book is a simple and adorable where you will find yourself dwelling in the bookโ€™s scenario. This is a light read, which can enlighten your weekend. Overall a perfect and beautiful read. Do not miss it!

Rating ๐ŸŒŸ ๐ŸŒŸ ๐ŸŒŸ ๐ŸŒŸ ๐ŸŒŸ .

Indianย mythologyย is enriched by various moral giving tales of gods, goddess, and gems. There was a gem called as Semmanthaka, which is known as to directly derive from the Sun god. This gem has the ability to produce eight bharas of gold every day. I didnโ€™t know about this gem until I read about it on the internet. The story of this gem is literally interesting and this increased my curiosity to read this book. I must thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest book review.
