Publisher's Summary

Owen only has one wish left. This time he wants to ensure it doesn’t come with nightmarish side effects like his first two. Unfortunately, Cleo, the scornful genie granting his desires, isn’t willing to help. With the wish deadline fast approaching, Owen must find a way to gain Cleo’s assistance, or he’ll be stuck forever in a tangle of his own making.

Great choice in Owen's third wish

With one wish left, Owen wants to use it wisely, unlike his other two wishes. After all, he did get exactly what he wished for (wealth and fame). This is an interesting take on the genie in a bottle and things that humans wish for. Cleo taught Owen a powerful lesson about himself (and other humans in general).

Jack Calihan is one of my favorite narrators and his narration of this book is no exception. He did an outstanding job! I was given this free copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Intriguing Story

This was a quick read with an intriguing storyline. It's an interesting take on a genie on a bottle. I really liked Cleo, she has the evasive slyness I've come to expect from a genie.

Jack Calihan's narration was fantastic. He has such a smooth voice that is a pleasure to listen to and brings the story to life.

This was a bit out there but the bases of the storyline is touching, be careful what you wish for! Loved Jack, his voice is mesmerising. Good level of action.

Great short story.

Who doesn't love a story with a genie? I definitely do. His third wish is the hardest one and he would love help figuring it out. But Cleo says no she's not telling him anything but the rules. This is worth your time. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer 🎧

Interesting

Interesting thoughtful short story! Jewel did a good job with this story. And Jack always does a great narration! This does point out that people don't put a lot of stock in themselves only their possessions.

Very thought provoking

I've often fantasized about what I'd wish for if I were given 3 wishes. I'm thinking I really like the idea of his 3rd wish.
Great story and very well read by the narrator!! Win Win for all of us!!

A Great Short Story!

This is a wonderfully well written short story. The characters are nicely developed and lovable. I really enjoyed traveling with Owen on his journey to figure out his third wish. This story reminds me of the old saying, “be careful what you wish for, you just might get it” and most of the time it’s not how you wanted it. Yeah, this story goes there. Also, it slightly reminded me of the B movie Wishmaster. I love that movie and the fact that you can’t always trust a djinn or genie. The narration was very nicely done by Jack Calihan. He has such a smooth and velvety voice that you can’t help but swoon over what he’s reading.

Kept my attention, very enjoyable listen.

I love a good short story/novelette/novella. They're great to listen to when I only have a little bit of time or when I want to listen to and finish a story right before bedtime.

Jack Calihan has a smooth, sexy voice. It's easy to tell who is speaking and he does a great job with female characters. This is a very interesting and unique twist on a Jeanie in a bottle story. I really enjoyed both the story and the performance.

A complimentary copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the narrator.

Enjoyable Quick Listen

If you grew up on fairy stories, as I did, then maybe Aladin was one of your favourites it was certainly one of mine, this book is like Aladin for grownups except that the genie lives inside a pillbox (despite the cover picture) and is a woman. Owen is the hero of our story, he has come into possession of said pillbox and has made two wishes already and only has a few hours left to make his third wish before Cleo, the genie, is freed from her obligation to him.

His first two wishes hadn't worked out too well for him and he's trying to find out from Cleo how to make the best of what he has so far received by his first two wishes by making the right third wish. Cleo for her part is eagerly awaiting her freedom, should she help him make the right choice now, should she act on her growing attraction to this human?

It was a fun listen, the narration by Jack Calihan was excellent, his portrayal of Owen and Cleo was perfect.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Peculiar

A peculiar romance. It was very different from even most paranormal romance audiobooks. It wasn't my favorite but I liked that it was different. Something you couldn't predict and an interesting short story. Had a good steamy scene. The narrator really seemed to fit the character.

Short and sweet

This short, sweet and thought provoking book was an enjoyable distraction. I throughly enjoyed the unique storyline.

Jack is a fantastic narrator. I love his deep sexy voice. He can read to me ALL day!
