Then Jasmine stumbles across Raziq Djinni who sets her world on its ear. Believe me when I say, he is no ordinary man. He is a genie! Jasmine buys what she believes to be a beautiful perfume bottle but this bottle is really Raziq's eternal house. This is truly a case of "be careful of what you wish for! " When Jasmine is granted her wish, she gets more than she bargains for and Raziq's help literally saves Jasmine's life.
The chemistry between Jasmine and Raziq jumps off the pages. The way Ms. Jackson describes Raziq, he is melt-in-your-mouth fine and most importantly, he is everything Jasmine has never had in a man. He is good, honest, and has her best interest interests at heart. But, there are demonic forces that want to drive Raziq away from Jasmine. As the plot in this book thickens, you won't be able to put it down. The pages are filled with soul searching, crime and hot passionate scenes with a twist of paranormal flavoring to boot. This is a definite must read if you're looking for a different type of book. I particularly enjoyed it because although it was a romance, it wasn't your typical case of boy meets girl. The paranormal elements Ms. Jackson wove into her story were very creative. Who would have thought a human being could fall in love with a genie?

Ms. Jackson did what many authors fail to do; she created a hero that the reader can't help but fall passionately in love (and lust) with. I mean, what normal woman wouldn't love to have a totally hot genie (pardon me, djinni) grant her one wish? Sounds like the stuff of my fantasies anyway. But of course, it doesn't quite pan out that way (does it ever?) The course to true love never runs smooth, but poor Jasmine and Raziq have a bit more to contend with than usual; demons and sorceresses and even an honest-to-goodness succubi. But no incubi, oh well, maybe in the next book Ms. Jackson?
And did I mention that not only is this book hot and steamy with an engaging story that I couldn't put down, but its also mad funny? Ms. Jackson has a rapier wit that comes through in this story that had me laughing out loud at times (when she wasn't scaring the bejesus out of me!) All in all this was a great book, and I can't wait to get my hands on her backlist.
Monica Jackson is a talented author. She has a skill for creating likeable characters. The djinni, Raziq, nearly leaps off the page in all his sexiness. (Makes you wanna go hunt up your own antique perfume bottle).
The scenes where Raziq has to hide Jasmine from the forces of evil inside of a coke can are the best. You truly can viualize the haven he creates for her.
This book has it all good versus evil, action adventure, romance, intrigue, mystery, and all the passion you will ever need--you name it and this is the potpourri of romance books.
My only complaint: it was too short (210 pages) and that's only because I was not ready to leave Raziq and Jasmine alone.
Excellent book. Excellent.
