    I think what I enjoyed most about this particular book by Ash Krafton was the uniqueness of the story itself I have never read a romance story featuring a genie before The fact that this books male main character is a bit different made the storyappealing to me, as apposed to thetypical werewolf or vampire paranormal romance This simple change in paranormal species is a welcome breath of fresh air to the sub genre, but that is not the reason I kept reading the book.From the first I think what I enjoyed most about this particular book by Ash Krafton was the uniqueness of the story itself I have never read a romance story featuring a genie before The fact that this books male main character is a bit different made the storyappealing to me, as apposed to thetypical werewolf or vampire paranormal romance This simple change in paranormal species is a welcome breath of fresh air to the sub genre, but that is not the reason I kept reading the book.From the first page, the author pens a tale of mystery speckled with witty humor and intense although initially denied attraction between the two main characters Tamiranda is a no nonsense psychologist who does not give in to her emotional side She relies heavily on intellect and logic to face the world around her, and this makes her characters profession an excellent choice As a psychologist Tam keeps a level head and an appropriate level of professional distance between herself and her patients It is obvious that Ms Krafton has done thorough, first hand research into the world of psychology, and the hours of hard work paid of in creating a believable character in Tam Kerish, which, for this particular story was absolutely vital to the overall plot.When Tam meets a new client who only goes by the name Burns, an extremely handsome man claiming to be a genie, she is intrigued enough to go along with his delusion, because for the first time in her life, he has made her feel a real emotional response that she can t control.The genie named Burns has been searching desperately for a magical item that has escaped his grasp for hundreds of years He has search city after city, hoping to felt he connection to the item that is so important to him, and discovers Tam Kerish is in possession of the artifact While he arranges to see her for honest conversation she is drawn into his world, and begins to realize he isn t as crazy as she first surmised As the story continues, the attraction between them grows and Tam must choose between her cool professionalism and giving into her the desires Burns invokes in her I really enjoyed the ongoing development of the characters throughout the story, which seems to be a lost art in storytelling these days.This book is definitely worth a read if you are looking for something a littleunique in the paranormal romance genre, and you won t be disappointed in Ash Krafton s seemingly effortless ability to hold your attention and keep you wanting to know

    This Review was first published on my blog Lecture toute une Aventure Note until the 23January 2015 this book is only 99ct on most digital retailer, take advantage of it while it lastsMy opinion Last year I ve been learning of the existence of a few book including djinns and I got to read some but not that many 2 only so when I learned of this one with a Djinn as main character I really wanted to read it especially since I do hope strongly to read the other series of this author on my wishl This Review was first published on my blog Lecture toute une Aventure Note until the 23January 2015 this book is only 99ct on most digital retailer, take advantage of it while it lastsMy opinion Last year I ve been learning of the existence of a few book including djinns and I got to read some but not that many 2 only so when I learned of this one with a Djinn as main character I really wanted to read it especially since I do hope strongly to read the other series of this author on my wishlist for too long.I m really not disappointed This story is well written I smiled, I laughed I even cried at some moments as it was a whirlwind of emotions and I was captivated by the originality of the concept.But let s seein details First the female main character Tam she is psychologist, working with emotions is for a her a way to study them she can understand her patients on a calm logical level because herself can t feel the emotions She is that way since her childhood so she learned to act like she has them but deep down she is not feeling and it s something she regret When I discovered her problem it made me think about Shaw from the Persons of Interest show. she has the same problem but because of something that happened to her later so in comparison she knows emotions she just lost the way to connect to them In a sense it helped me to imagine Tam s lifeeasily and I really could connect with her.Tam is a kind person, apparently cold because of her problem she is still attentive and she is loyal trust is really important to her She also has the powers to see things other can t.We do learn about Tam situation right at the beginning which I think was a intelligent manoeuvre to help us to understand the impact Burns has on her better and quicker.Burns is a Djinnprecisely it s a fire elemental, he was bound to Salomon s ring and now longs to be free by reclaiming his talisman His quest lasted millennia but he finally found Tam and he is sure she has his talisman so he decides to contact her since she is bound by confidentiality He never expected to find a human woman able to resist him and able to surprise him The fact Tam is so logical even with dealing with him despites everything he shows her has him entranced.But Burn is its element like fire he can be unpredictable calm one moment in frenzy the next he has tantrums and anger easily.that made me smile as much as want to strangle him sometimes.While trying to make Tam give up his Talisman Burns help her discover magic and a totally new world.he also opens to him like never in the past and as strange as it is for Tam he makes her feel before him the only time she experienced briefly emotion was in her dreams, with him it s surprise after surprise and they slowly fall for each other.The quest for the Talisman has some really good twists and i was happily surprised It s not complicated but we are lead on false tracks or we learn news elements that makes us doubt our first opinion so I really liked how it was done to keep us captivated by the story as well as the romance.Now I loved it but there are still little details that make me not to give a 5 Perhaps it s due to the fact I ve read this while I was just recovering and perhaps my heads was not at his place all the time but for example I m curious about to who the other door was, or why Burns say Lily can see him Did they meet Did Lily met his enemies first perhaps it was said I missed it but who took the decision to make the special ceremony Was it something planned by Solomon to those he entrusted or something done against what he would have wished Honestly it s because I m really into detail that I have those questions and I will reread the book happily to see if I missed something but it s why I give only a 4,5 and believe me if you forget those you will be immersed in the series and not think about it at all I do recommend Words that Binds if you want a good paranormal romance with a good dose of originality , romance, some humour and emotions you keep you on edge until the last page.Score 4,5 5
