Junior archaeologist Philip Butler is distressed thinking someone will steal the oil lamp along with Jinn, the genie that was trapped in the lamp. However, conditions suddenly change for Pip when he and Jinn are caught in a compromising position by Pip’s unrequited love interest Valdemar Velde. This is the beginning of a journey that will test the three men’s mind, body and soul.

Genie's Wish is the second book in the Lifting the Veil series. Though the setting is in the same world, the characters are different, so each book is a stand-alone. In this installment, the theme is an adventure through a maze where each room is a riddle that must be solved or you could lose your life. Fortunately all three men are intelligent and honorable; they seek only to escape the greed-driven villain chasing them in the underground city ruins.

The plot reveals the attraction the three men have for each other. Because of his pure soul, kind heart and intelligent mind, Pip is the object of desire for Jinn and Val. Jinn has never met a mortal with Pip’s qualities before and is immediately drawn to him. Val has secretly loved Pip for a long time but was afraid Pip would reject his advances. Pip realizes he is capable of loving Val and Jinn equally. Most of Genie's Wish focus is on solving the puzzles of the maze with minor displays of affection between Pip, Val and Jinn. On the other hand, the last few pages are a marathon of scorching illustrations of intimacy that will leave the reader panting.

Genie's Wish is an intriguing exceedingly enjoyable happy-ever-after action romance saga.
