Publisher's Summary

When Lily Jacobs was born, she inherited Fazire - a genie. Her family had three wishes and they'd only ever used one so Fazire was stuck in the human world. This worked since he'd become a member of the family anyway.
Even with a genie, Lily's young life wasn't perfect. To escape the kids making her miserable at school, Lily buried herself in romance novels. One day, when the teasing was just too much, she used one of her wishes. She told Fazire she wanted to find a man like in her books and she made the most complicated wish Fazire had ever heard. Her wished-for man had to be impossibly handsome, virile, fierce, rugged, and ruthless (amongst a dozen other things).
He also had to think she was beautiful and he had to love her more than anything in the world.
Nathaniel McAllister wasn't born to a life where there were such things as genies granting wishes. His life was filled with drugs, crime, and neglect. He was running errands for a gangster before he was in his teens and, even though life and hard work led him to wealth and respectability, he always knew, deep down, he was dirty. When Nate met Lily he knew he was no good for her but as virile, fierce, rugged, and ruthless as he was, Nate was no match for the pull of sweet, innocent Lily.
Unfortunately, Lily's wish included that she and her hero go through trials and tribulations to test their love. And Fazire wasn't only a good genie, he loved Lily - so he gave her exactly what she wanted.

WELL ALL MY WISHES FOR THIS LISTEN CAME TRUE

I really don't know how Kristen Ashley does it.. because she continues to wow, woo and win me with her very diversified stories that always seem to pull me in from the start and once there they keep me captive riveted to the unexpected, the unexplainable, the unheard of, the undeniable and the unknown. And I am always overjoyed, overwhelmed, and overcome by the rollercoaster journeys this very talented Author takes me on.. and the epic saga of the Three Wishes made me overindulge too because I feasted on every mouth-wateringly delicious chapter.

It starts by telling the story of Fazire the Genie and how he is selflessly bestowed to three generations of women who all value him and his friendship more than any wish.. but over the decades two wishes have been used to get a heart's desire. And the romantic wish that a teenage girl's soul passionately longs for asks that trials and tribulations test the romance - trials and tribulations that, when Lily's 22, will nearly destroy her. Her wish will bring her Nathaniel (aka Nate) the love of her life who is a volatile damaged alpha with a tragic secret past and he is everything Lily wished for and much much more. But her wish will bring vicious lies and misunderstandings that will break Nate and Lily's hearts and tear the lovers apart for eight long and lonely years. An unplanned pregnancy will nearly kill Lily.. but their precious sweet daughter will eventually bring them back together again where the truth can finally be heard, forgiveness can be asked for and given.. and where, sadly, more trials and tribulations are ahead. Because this bittersweet journey of broken dreams and broken promises will continue to lead to rocky roads because Nate refuses to lower his defences and share his past misdeeds with Lily for fear of losing her. And, through it all, Fazire wil be there every step of the way, along with other characters, who will support, advise and help steer these complex lovers to their hard won happy ever after.

This love story is so well paced as it tells of sacrifice, strength, forgiveness and love. It's endearing, heartbreaking and heartwarming too as it weaves a contemporary romance with tragedies, family values, friendships and fantasy in amongst the humor, heart and heat. It's an emotionally intense ride of epic highs and shattering lows, of giddy laughter and heart-torn tears, of passion and romance from many angles and it's told from a variety of POV's.. but mainly Lily and Nate's. And Carly Robins did a great job at bringing this story, its loveable characters and its many feels to life.

Worth a credit? For me.. it's a stand on the table and shout it out YES because KA has certainly made all my wishes come true with this bittersweet unforgettable listen.
