Blurb: Playing the part of another man’s husband to fulfill a wish is easy, but what happens at midnight when the magical day is over?

Scott Baxter is a workaholic with no time for love, until a djinn pulls him out of his life and deposits him into the bed of Cameron Kirk. Cut off from his life, Scott isn’t happy about the idea of being forced to help the djinn grant an unspecified wish, but he soon finds he has no real choice in the matter. The djinn, who has turned his life upside down, has powers that prevent Scott from leaving and ensure he does nothing to ruin Cameron’s day with his ‘husband’.

Reluctant at first, Scott finds that as the day progresses he starts to enjoy playing the role of Cameron’s husband. He connects with his unexpected lover in a way he never has with other men.

Scott searches for clues to help him track down Cameron after the day is over and he returns to his own life. He doesn’t want the day to end, but the wish is out of his control and when the magic is finished, his time with Cameron may be over too.

Dividers

Review: Talk about unexpected surprises! L.M. Brown’s One Perfect Wish is an absolutely delightful fairy tale of a story. While this novella is on the short side, nothing feels sacrificed in its limited word count. The characters are well fleshed out within the limits of the storyline, and the chemistry is so evident between Scott and Cameron that in its sixty-one pages, it’s impossible not to feel as if you’ve been given all the romance and heartbreak you can bear before the author weaves her magic to bring the story to a sweet and satisfying finish.

The story’s blurb details everything you need to know about the two men and the circumstances that bring them together, so I won’t bother rehashing it all here. Suffice it to say the author’s storytelling style is as enchanting and breathtaking as a first kiss, every bit as magical as first love, and as hope-filled as a second chance to make a dream come true. I loved that just when One Perfect Wish seemed as though it would be a fun but not particularly extraordinary read, Brown threw in just the right twist to elevate this tale from another insta-love story to something so much more.

When you’re in the mood for a quick read filled with a passion that will warm your heart and make you believe in destiny and true love, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend One Perfect Wish to satisfy that mood.
