REVIEW: Come True

“I’m not paper. Today, I am a tree. And all the misogynistic huffing and puffing in the world won’t blow me down.”


Dolly has made some recent bad choices in life and has been living a year of atonement. Quiet, reserved and restricting herself from anything that she deems as indulgent. When she buys a cheap vase at a thrift shop she doesn’t realize that she has bought a vessel containing a genie who is going to turn her world upside down. She is dead set against spending her wishes until she learns just what is at stake for Velis, the genie. Then she is thrust into a world she didn’t even know she existed and she must decide whether her own goals are more important than helping someone else (a hot someone else who she finds herself falling for).

I am always trying support fellow bookstagrammers who are always authors and the buzz around this one really got me. But, I didn’t know what to expect – generally romances can be too much for me and the tag line “a bomb ass genie romance” kept me from picking it up earlier. But the more reviews I read, the more I thought it might be a unique story with some real depth. That was definitely true. In the beginning, Velis was a little annoying bro-y for me but I am glad I stuck with it. Their relationship evolves in a fun way and reaches a level of depth that I really enjoyed. As the backstory unravelled, I was more and more interested. The ending was both satisfying and left me wanting to read the next one.

This is the second bookstagram author read I’ve completed this year, I’m trying to support as many booksta friends as I can this year. Any booksta authors that are your favorites?
