Review: As You Wish

As You Wish
by Roxanne Wells

Both men love her, both men need her, but will the words AS YOU WISH be the last time they hear from her?

Jake Bentley and Benjamin Cartwright are archeologists and best friends digging in the Utah desert. Instead of finding the dinosaur bone they expected, they find an unusual bottle. Jake opens the bottle and both men look inside. They see nothing until Aluma, the beautiful genie, appears behind them and asks them what they were looking for.

Aluma bows to Jake and tells him she’ll grant three wishes. Surprised at Jake’s wish, Aluma must grant his desires. Since Ben found the bottle second, Ben will get the last wish. Jake and Ben decide to share their wishes so that the last wish will benefit them both. They want Aluma forever.

Aluma begins to break some of the “genie handbook rules,” and all three of them end up in front of the “Genie Counsel.” Both men love her, both men need her, but will the words AS YOU WISH be the last time they hear from her? Absolutely not.

I really liked both of the men and the way they were written. Each had a distinct personality and style, and I could see what Aluma liked in each of them. Aluma was a bit less consistent for me. She’s happy in her bottle for years and years, then her life is boredom personified? I didn’t really feel that change in her feelings was explained.

The scenes, settings, and the sex are wonderful in this story. It was titillating and fun. The backstory of the two male friends worked perfectly for me. However, I didn’t fully grasp how two such competitive men would be willing to share her forever. Their actions and dialogue showed too much jealousy for that to be believable.

That being said, I did enjoy this story. It had a nice and neat plot that worked well, and the sex scenes were really hot. I liked the author’s choice to not have the men interact with each other sexually. Aluma was their focus and desire. This is exactly what it’s billed to be: a hot and sexy story with an adventurous genie and the two men who share her.
