Disclaimer: I was lucky enough to receive a free copy of this book, in exchange for my honest review. However, please note that all opinions and views are my own.
A life of despair, a heart-crippling desire, and a desperate wish to belong.
My life was perfect. Successful career underway, supportive family by my side, a comfortable lifestyle, and my hot, hunky fiancé I assumed would become my life partner.
But then in the span of twenty-four hours, betrayal, rejection, and heartbreak made my world crash down around me.
All alone with no one to turn to, I find myself cradling a lamp given to me by my grandmother, my last connection to someone who loved me. As the clock strikes midnight, I make a silent plea: Let me find where I truly belong.
Never would I have imagined that four half-naked men would be the answer to my plea.
I’m not one to believe in fairy tales, but I’m about to start my own as I travel across the world as Destiny Jinn, granting wishes with four unique men who brighten my once lonely existence.
I am pulled to a new world where wishes can truly become reality—but at what price?
I guess the saying is true – Be careful what you wish for…
Everyone has a bad day every now and then. It’s part of life, and there’s nothing to do about it. However, after reading about Destiny’s day I feel pretty darn good about even the lousiest day I’ve had. In one day she learns she’s adopted, her fiance breaks up with her (and is already engaged to someone else), her boss calls to sack her while her family home burns around her. Like that isn’t enough, she sees a repeated and distorted version of it all on TV, after her narrow escape from the burning house. From the TV, which she’s watching at the hotel she fled to, she learns that not only did she supposedly die in the flames – her cats remains were found. No one is bothering to even try and contact her. Friends and family alike has abandoned her, while the TV, as well as her social media accounts, are flooded with R.I.P messages. Within mere days she’s basically forgotten and ruled dead to the world. Heartbroken, confused and alone she only has two things left to cling on to. A lamp her granny left for her and a heartfelt wish to find out what her purpose is. Enter four tall, good looking and naked men. With their help Destiny Jinn finally gets a chance to find out who she is, and where she belongs. All she has to do is embrace the path, and find the courage and strength to walk it.
Now on to my fourth series by Yumoyori I’m amazed at how great her work is. Many authors struggle to get 1 book out every few months – which is completely understandable – and then there’s Yumoyori who releases like 2+ books every month. If you’re anything like me, a born sceptic, you’ll be wondering what kind of quality we’re talking about here. But there’s absolutely no need to worry about that, because each series seem better than the last. I think this is one of the few times where I don’t feel that 5 hearts are enough. I absolutely adore Destiny, who is the embodiment of a strong, kind, caring and exceptional character. And the four Jinn’s that show up are equally amazing. Yumoyori has done a great job at connecting their Jinn titles to their personalities, Luke Jinn the Humble, Owen Jinn the Adventurous, Jeremiah Jinn the Magnificent and Cole Jinn the Vengeance – are all both entertaining and unique. While there is more focus on one guy (which seems to be typical for Yumoyori), it seems natural and it doesn’t push the other guys out of the picture.
