Publisher's Summary

Nothing ever happens in a genie lamp.

I get my kicks watching the parallel worlds that I am thrown in and out of as I serve my masters. All their wishes are the same. Wealth. Power. Fame. I give it to them and move on because my freedom is never their wish.

These newest three masters are different, and it isn’t because they are half-vampire. They did not mean to rub my bottle and have no desire to collect their wishes. Instead, they want to give them to someone else. Who does that? They drag me through their world, and for the first time, I am in one place long enough to feel human. A desire for a true life awakens in me, and I can taste my freedom in their touch.

What would it be like to be claimed by three? I will use every trick I know to find out.

Fun

Such a fun audio book to listen to. The story is creative and full of adventure and discovery, self and other wise. each voice even though voice by the same person is distinct. There are very interesting surprises and twists throughout.

Fun and entertaining

I won this Audible in a contest. This was a unique retelling of Aladdin...kinda? It was a high heat, medium spice (if that makes sense), RH romance. Focusing on the Genie who has traveled through alternative universes and her three half-vampire love interests. I wouldn't say that there is M/M content per say...but potential for M/M activities in future books should Gina decide to continue their story.
I like that one of the love interests is mute and used sign language. Writing a character like this can be difficult, but how Cain was portrayed was done very well. It took me a while to get used to the concept, with the Genie having knowledge about modern-day items and bringing them into a Sasanid-like era. But once I got used to the clashing of the different time periods, I found that I really enjoyed this book. There were a few times while listening to the book where I had to stop and thought, "Oh my God! I'm crying!" So I do feel it is fair to say I got emotionally invested in these characters.
The narrator has a great voice. She had a great tone and portrayed the attitudes of the characters nicely. My only feedback would be that while speaking for different characters, to try to differentiate the voices a little more.
All in all, this was a fun read and had a plot twist I didn't expect. I was pleasantly surprised.
