AS YOU WISH took me by surprise with its sincere charm, lighthearted humor, and the best kind of romance.

The development of Viola and Jinn's from master-genie to romantic love was extraordinarily well done. It was subtle and likable, like a romantic comedy movie unfolding before your eyes, except in words. It is rare nowadays to find a romance that doesn't start off from insta-connection and physical attraction, so Viola and Jinn's relationship stands out to me in the best way.

Perhaps the greatest thing about AS YOU WISH, however, is Jackson Pearce's effortless narration. How many authors can truly tell a charming story out of a concept that rides the fence on being sweet and too saccharine? AS YOU WISH didn't read like a forced novel to me, but more like me experiencing a good friend's story, or living out my favorite romantic comedy. I found myself crying through the ending, so involved was I in Jinn, Viola, and Lawrence's story.

Don't be fooled by its childlike cover and fairy tale premise. AS YOU WISH makes you believe in wish-granters and the fact that love can triumph all. This is magical realism at its best, completely worth the list price, and one of the best love stories I've read all year.
