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.

I've struggled to finish the book. Purchased this because of the reviews here in Audible and was disappointed. The plot has potential but the overall story is so-so and the leads utter cliché. The narrator is good but I find the male lead in this story VERY hard to like. For someone who is considered a "genius", he handles simple situations like an idiot. Hardly spoken ANYTHING meaningful throughout the series. He only speaks sentences when he makes demands to the female lead, when he claims her in bed, and when he SHOUTS at her vulgar words because she buys him a gift or wears pajama outside the terrace. The book gives the excuse that he doesn't reply or speak often because something is suddenly tugging at his heart he can't speak. His heart is probably being tugged all throughout the book then.

He makes promises but doesn't keep them and pushes people away because of "his oh so daaark past". For someone who is considered "a person who feels everything" he's very insensitive to those around him. If you remove his "devastatingly oh so perfect good looks", he's practically and TRULY an empty, pathetic, and insecure character who can't seem to make up his mind. One moment he forces the female lead to be with him, next moment he's sulking and pushing her away.

Overall, a robot has more character than this sad excuse of a male lead.
