I lost everything, was shipped off to live with an aunt I barely knew, and was put to work cleaning her dilapidated antique shop.
And then, I met Callum.
Or should I say I released him?
I was a socialite with a strong sense of entitlement and a lot of anger.
He was a Dominant genie with a hard body and an even harder hand.
It could never work.

I have received this ARC in exchange for an honest review
Although I have been stalking Ally Hart for a while now, this is my first time writing a review for one of her books. I personally think I picked the perfect one to start with! This is not my favorite sub-genre to write about but this one caught me by surprise. I love the way Hart took this and made it her own, but also stuck with the basics of the Dd/Lg platform. This was an emotional story that tugs at your heart-strings but is also able to grant you your fantasy of having every wish you ever desired.
A Well Placed Wish is a story about a spoiled rotten heiress Fiona who loses everything and is sent to live with her Aunt Mary who she barley knew. Her world is turned upside down in a matter of minutes. She must now fend for herself, earn her keep by helping Mary clean her antique shop, and to make matters worse there is NO caffeine! One day during one of Fiona’s many temper tantrums she comes across a small room with a strange bottle, upon closer inspection she gets the shock of her life when Callum appears from inside. Callum is the genie that has served her family for year. He appears when his charges need him, but most importantly he makes sure they are taught the hard lessons they deserve. Unlike his other charges Fiona is something special to Callum, she is to be his one and only true love to release him from his life of solitude. The only question that remains is, is Fiona strong enough to believe in their love to make her final wish so they can be together forever.
Hart does an amazing job of writing a hot and steamy story of a dominate genie. We are all sure of Fiona’s need to be taught a lesson and Callum is just the genie to do it. Not only is he exactly what Fiona needs in her life, but it seems that Fiona is everything that Callum has been looking for. This unlikely pair is the key to each others happiness in more way than one. Callum teaches Fiona how to grow up and rely on herself more than she ever has and Fiona shows Callum that even though he has lived a life of solitude it is alright to love someone so unconditionally without reservation. Hart writes us a story with great characters that grow throughout the story, but let us not forget about the hot and steamy bits in the middle.
You would never think of a genie being the dominate one in a relationship, but after reading this story I could not imagine it any other way. Callum and Fiona were destined to be together no matter how long it took for them to meet. Hart reminds us that although it may take a while we are all entitled to our own happily ever after
Until next time,
