Hi friends! I’m so excited to share my thoughts on Come True with y’all! This was definitely an adventure and make sure to check out the link and blurb below if you’re interested in getting a copy of this book for yourself! 🥳
You can purchase the book on Amazon:
Author: Brindi Quinn
Blurb: A jaded girl. A persistent genie. A contest of souls.
Recent college graduate Dolly Jones has spent the last year stubbornly trying to atone for a mistake that cost her everything. She doesn’t go out, she doesn’t make new friends and she sure as hell doesn’t treat herself to things she hasn’t earned, but when her most recent thrift store purchase proves home to a hot, magical genie determined to draw out her darkest desires in exchange for a taste of her soul, Dolly’s restraint, and patience, will be put to the test.
Newbie genie Velis Reilhander will do anything to beat his older half-brothers in a soul-collecting contest that will determine the next heir to their family estate, even if it means coaxing desire out of the least palatable human he’s ever contracted. As a djinn from a ‘polluted’ bloodline, Velis knows what it’s like to work twice as hard as everyone else, and he won’t let anyone—not even Dolly f*cking Jones—stand in the way of his birthright. He just needs to figure out her heart’s greatest desire before his asshole brothers can get to her first.
COME TRUE: A BOMB-ASS GENIE ROMANCE is the romantic, fantastic second-coming-of-age story of two flawed twenty-somethings from different realms battling their inner demons, and each other, one wish at a time.
This was such a fun read! It is the epitome of a magical genie adventure with a little spice on the side! And that cover *whew* not me simping over a book cover 😭
The main character, Dolly, is so feisty and badass, I really enjoyed reading about her! She had a jaded past which was interesting to see how it affected her and how she overcame it. Velis, the djinn, was an amazing character as well! The two of them together is just amazing because the banter was just *chef’s kiss* It made me laugh out loud quite a few times so the banter is top notch.
I really enjoyed the concept of this story and I have to say that the world-building was done beautifully. I was really intrigued by how the whole wish-granting system worked and the whole other universe that genies come from. It was pretty epic and I wished we got more of the characters exploring the world!
I did wish that we got a bit more of a structured plot because most of the storyline didn’t really involve showing what the characters did but more so of the author just telling us what happens. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot but I will say that this was a more character-driven story for me.
My Rating: 3/5 Stars
Would I recommend this book? Yes! if you’re looking for a fun, banter-filled adventure with genies, magic, and a bit of spice, you definitely want to check out Come True by Brindi Quinn!
I hope all of you have a magical day! ✨
