Amanda had always been forgiving, until the night of her engagement. It was at that moment, when she found her new fiancé banging the waitress in the bathroom, that she changed. Never again. Men were not going to use her ever again.

So when she found William’s portrait and learned that his whole purpose for existing was to let her use him, an electrifying relationship resulted. This genie offered her three nights of pleasure. And Amanda quickly realized she wanted more.

I really enjoyed this short story, and truly believe that it could be expanded into a longer book. This naughty little adventure has “Good bones” and is well written, but I feel that I needed more of the fantasy side of the book.
You can relate to our heroine, Amanda, and definately place yourself in her world with her man trouble; we’ve all been there. But when the story turns up the heat and we meet William, the Genie in the portrait, I can’t seem to get enough…time seems to speed up, fast forwarding to the end.
All in all, I enjoyed this book and think it is well worth the price.
I see even greater things coming from this author in the future.
