Publisher's Summary

I was done with my djinn ex-boyfriend, but now, I’m the only one who can save his life.

I’m already in enough trouble with my magic going crazy right when I’m opening a storefront for romantic crimes consulting. The last thing I need is interference from Kiran Singh, who failed spectacularly as a boyfriend. Now, he wants me back with some crappy excuse of helping him track down illegal, dangerous love potions.

Then, one of his other exes tries to kill me in a fit of jealous, doped-up rage and ends up dead herself - with all evidence pointing to Kiran. 

My vegetarian vampire mate Cendric is convinced Kiran is up to something. But homicide isn’t Kiran’s style, even if he’s starting to show serious psycho-jealousy of his own. Someone else is pulling the strings, and they don’t care how many people die from fake love. 

And if we can’t track down the real mastermind, my ex is going to disappear. And not in the way I’d wish.

Buy now and enjoy the Steel City Genie series, a snarky urban fantasy featuring a blue-collar genie, a romantic subplot with heat (nothing graphic), and gleeful send-ups of many romantic fantasy tropes, plus otter-shifters and coffee addictions.

Addictive

Wish You Weren't Here is a fantastic addition to The Steel City Genie series. The storyline is incredibly well-developed, imaginative, and utterly addictive; I was hooked right away. The world-building is brilliant, packed with all types of supernatural creatures. The two main characters are absolutely intriguing, fascinating, and capable; I can't wait to learn what's next for them.

An outstanding performance by Melissa Schwairy. She portrayed the characters' personalities and the intensity of the scene very nicely, bringing them the story the life. This was a fabulous listen, one I highly recommend. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Clever title for fun urban fantasy

I really enjoyed the first title in the Steel City Genie series, and this continues in Ippolito's fantastic urban fantasy world. The author has made something unique, and that's often hard to do in the over-crowded world of urban fantasy.

One of the specific things that sets this apart is that it is less sexually explicit than other novels in the genre. It doesn't sacrifice the sizzle between the two main characters, though, who are newlyweds and trying to figure that out while dealing with a deceitful genie.

One of the things this story does that is similar to other fantasy books is that the main character has a team. She's gathered this together in the first book, and it continues to grow here. I am a fan of a good team, and this one has a variety of people who contribute an interesting variety of talents. That doesn't take away from the main character who is learning how to master her chaotic power.

I listened to this with an audiobook, and the performance was very good. It all worked in service of the story and didn't draw undue attention to itself.

Recommended.

I wish for more Alyss

Wish you weren't here, by Janeen Ippolito, is the sequel to If wishes were curses. I really recommend you read these in order as the main character Alyss goes through a ton of character growth and it is very satisfying to see it from beginning to end.

the characters in this novel are all so snarky, and they play off of each other really well. Listening to this was a series of laugh out loud moments as the narrator Melissa Schwairy delivered the lines with perfect timing and tone.

This book does have its serious moments too. like i said, Alyssa goes through some serious character growth, and some serious topics come up. The serious moments are handled well and don't out way the lighter tone of the story overall.

The thing I loved best about this book though was the author's use of cross over characters from different series. If you don't recognize them don't worry, they blend in well and no knowledge of the previous series is needed. But if you're in the know, it makes for a fun Easter egg.

Fabulous

I have really enjoyed the world building and also the twist on these more unusual paranormal creatures. There is plenty of chemistry which is enjoyable and is a series I can see myself listening to again.

Excellent

I was given a free code and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Fantastic second book I’m so glad things are working out for Alice and Cendric . Then along comes Kiran her ex and throws a spanner in the works.
