He needs to change his luck, and fast!

Matt Ewing would gladly hunt down a fortune in lucky pennies if he thought it would help save his business.

But for all his hoping, Matt’s clueless when his long awaited lucky charm falls in his lap in the form of a beguiling genie. He just can’t believe that this beautiful woman could be the answer to his prayers…

She’s been bottled up for far too long!

Spending 2,000 years in a bottle would make any woman go a little stir crazy. So when Matt releases Eden from her luxurious captivity, she’s thrilled to repay him by giving him the magical boost he needs…

But for all her good intentions, Eden’s magical prowess is a little rusty and her magical mistakes become more than embarrassing. And though Eden knows falling in love will end her magic and immortality, she can’t help but be drawn to the one man who wants her just for herself…

My review:

Judi Fennell's books are always a read on the fun side.

Fennell has a knack for combining zany characters with strange situations and sometimes odd settings, mixing them up with a dash of humor and tossing in a bit of sizzling romance- and the result is novel magic.

I can guarantee once you read one of Fennell's books you won't forget it.

Wordy puns, wisecracks, snarky comments, sensational secondary characters (sometimes really odd ones you've probably never seen in a romance novel before- drunk skunk anyone?) combined with sexy sizzle between two wonderful lead characters make her books page turners.

Fennell's under the sea adventures were wonderful but I think she's outdone herself with I Dream of Genies.

Eden is easily lovable and Matt is a hero you'll want....well you'll just plain want him but you'll also root for him and Eden to finally get it right and get together.

She's stuck in a bottle and he could use a little magic in his life. Both discover you should be careful what you wish for. But she has the chance for freedom and he's got a chance for his wishes to come true- too bad her magic causes mayhem and much magical hijinks.

You'll snicker, you'll giggle and if you're not careful you'll fall off your furniture laughing- either way you'll have fun reading this book.
