Meet Lyla: jinn, belly dancer, and the hottest new urban fantasy heroine in town.
To escape an arranged marriage, a jinni granted Lyla her wish: to live a thousand years as a jinni herself.
Now her servitude is ending, but there are a few obstacles in Lyla's path to freedom. A magi intent on binding her again, a jinni bent on vengeance, and not to mention the nightmare from her past that threatens to make her curse permanent - and claim her very soul.
Jinn and Juice is the first in a new series by fantasy writer Nicole Peeler set in a world of immortal curses, vengeful jinni, and belly dancing.

"Peeler has done it again! Jinn and Juice is a delightful read filled with action, humor, heart, and a heroine to cheer for. And it doesn't hurt that there are also sirens, trolls, bugbears, and plenty of Pittsburgh steel." (Kevin Hearne, author of Hounded)
"Peeler is perfect. Jinn and Juice is her best urban fantasy yet with vibrant characters that leap off the page fully formed from the first line. Fast-paced, rowdy, smart, irresistible, and tender, there's just no one who hits the urban fantasy marks as well as Peeler. Buy this book! Read it! Love it!" (Kat Richardson)
"Jinn and Juice is a raucous, raunchy tale well told. One thing's certain: You'll never look at Pittsburgh the same way after you've taken Nicole Peeler's mythic joyride up, down, and sideways in pursuit of an abducted teenage girl and freedom from a thousand-year curse. Legend and history, betrayal and love intertwine as the story moves from lascivious sex clubs to the unraveling of a mystery to a magical jinni throw down which will leave you panting for more. Jinn and Juice is Urban Fantasy at its smartest, naughtiest, funniest best." (Juliet Blackwell)
I have read books by Nicole Peeler before and have really enjoyed them. This was no different. The world building and the characters were creative and fleshed out. I enjoyed the interactions between Lyla and the other characters. I look forward to seeing what Lyla and Oz do in the next book.
I read too much, like most genre, & am picky about narrators. I like strong characters, great dialogue, & quirky bits!
I liked the characters, the premise, plot line, pacing, and world building. I read Nicole's previous 'Tempest' series and liked her style. She doesn't write boring, her conversation is natural no matter how weird the topic, her characters sharp and defined. She is just as successful this go-round...I'm sold.
I happily recommend this series.
I love urban fantasy and paranormal romance, but young adult and mysteries are also favorites.
I found the story very interesting and I liked the characters. The world was unique. The many various creatures keep things interesting. I hope there will be more books in this serious.
I thoroughly enjoyed Jinn and Juice. I hadn't heard this narrator before, she is very good, I hope to hear more. I'm looking forward to another book about Oz, Lila, and crew.
