Silver Screen Dream by Victoria Blisse

Silver Screen Dream.
Book one in the Djinn's Amulet Series.

When true love conquers all, what is a djinn to do?
Johnny is a djinn, and he has a hard life. His master, Rahul, is a massive Bollywood star who’s run off to England to avoid an arranged marriage, a marriage Johnny has to make happen. It’s his job.
Rahul further complicates matters by falling for a British Bollywood fan, Laura, whom he meets at a film premiere. How can Johnny get his master back to Mumbai to marry the woman to whom he is pledged and away from the English hussy who is steadily taking more and more of his attention?
Johnny will use revenge and jealousy, but how will he cope when true love is thrown into the mix?

Silver Screen Dream was a book of many first for me. It was my first Djinn story, my first Bollywood story and the first story I have read that was told from two different perspectives. The first chapter is from the Djinn, Johnny’s point of view and the second from the heroine, Laura’s perspective. The book then alternates between the two, until the end of the book. I found this a unique and enjoyable way of storytelling which developed the story very well and moved it along at a good pace.
I must give Johnny an honourable mention for being my favourite character in the book. His sense of humour was wonderful and often made me smile.
This is a short, sexy read, which combines magic, lust and love with a real life heroine, who carries real life insecurities, dreams and desires.
 Real life meets Bollywood and lots of sexy frolics. You can’t go wrong.
