Fortune by Aurelia T. Evans

He’s the reason to be careful what you wish for.

After her jealous boyfriend makes an angry, careless wish, Maya DeLuca finds herself trapped in a traveling demonic circus and at the mercy of a devious jinni, Bell Madoc. She joins the other lost souls of Arcanium who suffer in perpetual purgatory under the weight of their wishes, all making the best of a cursed situation.

But Maya’s not even cursed because of her own wish, which means she still has three for Bell to grant.

He may be fond of her—the passion they share is as hellfire hot as it is wrong—but that doesn’t mean she’s safe from his endlessly inventive, wicked imagination. He might twist her wishes at his whim for his own pleasure. Or he might just give her what she wants…which could be even worse.
Okay, so yea.. I’ll review this tomorrow because well it’s almost 2 am and I have an appointment tomorrow.. this was a recommend from @Soo — my review to come.

We are doing this… Let’s do this. 

Welcome to Arcanium, where you have to be over 18 to see the show. Children will be fed to the clowns. This is a warning that should be heeded. I loved this book, the only reason I didn’t give it five stars, well because I tend to give a lot of books five stars. I tend to be easy that way. But for this one, in particular, was the long-winded writing at points. I felt I was being told a story on the world around everyone. 

Maya wasn’t my favorite female MC; she was very judgemental. I know parts of her were written that way for a reason, but there were times I felt that she should have understood that things aren’t always her way. This story was on the darker side which I love. There were aspects of BDSM that didn’t follow the 50 shades formate which again I fucking loved. 

There was a lot of sex in this with multiple partners; now here I am going to say. If you are looking for instalove and jealousy if the male or female character sleeps with other people you are going to be sorely disappointed. Both Maya and Bell sleep around, Maya’s other partners are aware of Bell and even Bell gives his permission. Bell’s other partner was not aware, so he was more on the side of cheating. 

Other than that side note though, some scenes were amazing to read. I enjoyed almost every part of it. I felt that there was a slow burn with love especially on Maya’s side, but that was warranted though. She was kidnapped and kept against her will, she blamed Bell, and sure he played a part in it. But I also believe it was part of his nature to keep the wish. He could have made it so much worse for Maya but didn’t. He taught her so many things being with him. 

This is a series, but it’s standalone which actually makes me happy because the side characters were amazing to read about as side characters that I would love to read about them as MC’s as well so I thank Soo again. This book was totally worth the read.
