Review of ‘Forbidden Genie’
by Tori Dean
reviewed by Reed James
Isabella is a genie princess about to marry Prince Michael, a man she has no interest in marrying. But there are rules. All three of her older sisters have married their arranged princes, and now it is her turn. But when her younger sister, who loves Michael, hatches a plan to have the man she loves, Isabella finds herself locked in her lamp and thrown into the sea.
Luckily for Isabella, she’s found nearly a year later by Edward and his dog. Now Isabella has her chance to live her own life and find her own love. With Edward’s help, she begins to explore her new life. All she has to do is wait a few months for her younger sister to marry Michael.
But will she get that time as she falls in love with Edward?
Forbidden Genie is a sweet romance, light on the sex, but full of innocent and joyful love. Isabella has her chance to find the happiness she craves instead of the life her parents are forcing on her. I was little disappointed on how little her being a genie impacted the plot. Was hoping for a bit more magic in the story. These genies are quite technically involved, but she does have her three wishes.
Dean does an excellent job penning a short, sweet romance, using the genie angle to add obstacles lacking for characters in the normal world (how many princess, even today, are in arranged marriages they can’t get out of?).
If you like short, sweet HEA romances, especially with a touch of magic, than you will enjoy Forbidden Genie
