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 owned 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 the 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 a 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?



The story revolves around the protagonist Daisy and her changed life after her grandmother died. The secret gift of her grandmother to her granddaughter and how the way it affected Daisy’s life was worth reading.

By reading the blurb, at first, it feels like another Aladdin and her jinn’s story, however, the fluke gets wrong as one gets indulges him into the wonderful story. Unique theme, Suspenseful plot with a satisfying ending, original well-described characters make it a perfect and engrossing read. The description of Khalil and his Jinn world was fantastic. The chemistry between the couple was beyond words. However, the climax was the best part as it holds the capacity to bring tears. Definitely an engrossing read and a page turner.  Highly recommended to everyone.


I didn’t like the cover of the book as the wonderful story inside deserves a much more beautiful cover.

Secondly, the last words of the book say- “ IT’s NOT THE END” I hope it meant that the author will soon come up with a second part as I want to read more about the life of Daisy post marriage and their half human half jinn baby. Did Khalil come again to meet Daisy? And much more.

Rest, no flaws.
