    One thought on “Djinn and Tonic”

    1. The Perfect Blend of Contemporary Romance and Ancient MythologyDjinn and Tonic, the second installment in the Houri Legends series by Jasinda Wilder, was an exciting and enthralling read for me with the perfect blend of contemporary romance and paranormal world building. Jasinda excels at writing a variety of genres in romance and she brought her “A” game to this series creating an exotic new world with ancient Arabic mythology weaved in with a contemporary setting. Djinn and Tonic picks up [...]

    2. I really don't know where to begin with this book I almost stopped reading it a million times because it had subject matter that irritates me and it was driving me bat shit cray cray BUT, I am glad I didn't because by the end, I was really enjoying Carson and Leila's story. Well, lets come out with the one thing that drives me crazy, and that is insta-love I literally cringe and want to run away from the book when the big "L" word is thrown around after only a five minute conversation (no that d [...]

    3. *I received and ARC of this book for an honest review* 4.5 stars! I have read a fair number of paranormal books in my life. I can probably count on one hand the number of times I have encountered a djinn or Genie. Those characters are usually up to no good and secondary to the story. This series is pleasantly surprising! The world building--modern day Detroit with this hidden paranormal realm--draws the reader in right away. You want to know more. How have they stayed hidden from humans? What ha [...]

    4. FATE: the development of events beyond a person's control, regarded as determined by a supernatural power:Detective Carson Hale fell hard and fast for bartender Leila. After waking up in the hospital with bruised ribs and a concussion, he is confused as to what happened. He remembers asking her out on a date and kissing her, then everything went black. What shocks him is the pictures his Chief shows him of the destroyed bar he was at just a few hours ago and the fact that Leila is completely uns [...]

    5. The second book of the Houri Legends series is a story about the all consuming love that every romance reader hopes to have in their life one day. It is a story about a world of old customs and expectations brought upon a young woman by her family. It is a story about rebellion. It is a story about fighting for what you want. This is the story of Leila and Carson.I’ll follow you to the ends of the earth, and I’s save you from whatever it is you’re planning to do. I just found you and I’m [...]

    7. MICHELLE'S REVIEWYou lovers know that I am not much of a paranormal reader. It's not that I don't like it- it just tends not to be my preference. But I am a fan of this series from Jasinda Wilder. There's something so intriguing to me about these elemental goddesses. Maybe it's the strong female characters that attract me but whatever it is-This is the story of detective Carson Hale who we met in book 1 and Leila Najafi. Carson thinks that Leila is just an ordinary waitress at a bar. One he want [...]

    8. 4.5 hearts!"Djinn and Tonic" continues the djinn/genie story line and can be read alone but if you are like me, you prefer to read things in order.Carson Hale is the policeman who spent most of "Jack and Djinn" trying to answer the question of the unexplained things that were happening in Detroit. As the long hidden paranormal activities in Detroit are now being brought to light, he can only try his best to wrap his brain around it. Leila the bartender is a lot more than she seems. Now, with Car [...]

    9. For more reviews, please visit fortheloveofthereadI received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I adored this book. It's the second in a series, but one thing I loved about this book is that you don't necessarily have to read the first in order to jump in with this one. The first book featured Detective Hale as a supporting character, and I was glad to see him return. The relationship between him and Leila develops fairly quickly in this book, but it was introduced in the [...]

    11. ARC received in return for honest reviewAnother 5 star read from Jasinda Wilder!! I loved Djinn and Tonic, as opposed to gin and tonic, Detective Carson Hale’s drink of choice! The story takes of where Jack and Djinn left off. Det. Carson Hale is trying to solve a murder and still believe what he has seen and heard from the witness. Leila is the beautiful dark hair bartender that is listening to Hale and wanting to get a little closer. But she knows not too close. But the attraction is there a [...]

    12. ~~I was given this book by the author in exchange for my honest opinion~~This is the second book in the Houri Legends series, and just like the first, this one does not disappoint. This book follows Carson and Leila. Carson is trying to come to terms with what he saw with Miriam. Leila is trying to persuade him that some things are harder to comprehend when something happens. Carson is so enamored with Leila that he is having a very hard time getting her out of his head. He feels like he needs t [...]

    13. DJINN and Tonic (Book 2 in the Houri Legends)Holy S@$&! This book will literally BLOW YOU AWAY!!! Sorry for the shouting cap, but man as I said in my review for Jack and DJINN, adult paranormal romance normal had no appeal to me. This series has changed all that for me. There is a part of me that sees myself in Miriam and Leila, that has walked in their shoes and breathe the same air. Remaining spoiled free on this book is so hard, because the power that Jasinda lays in these pages is powerf [...]

    14. I am not a huge fan of paranormal, but when it comes to Jasinda I would read anything :) Carson was introduced in Jack and Djinn and I was so excited to dive into his book! Sexy, sweet, and such a hard worker he seems incredibly perfect. Sharing his back story really made me so sad for him. What a tragic past for any person to experience.Leila is a seriously complicated being. Major family problems force her to be a close lipped beauty. Explaining about her super uniquely weird past gives her s [...]

    15. 4 1/2 Stars I was given Djinn & Tonic for an honest review. WOW! This book will have you on the edge of the seat of your chair the entire book!

Detective Carson Hale is at bar - Old Shillelagh - trying to make sense of evidence presented and gathered in a murder case.He confides in bartender Leila as he feels a connection, an undeniable attraction. They share a kiss. A kiss where Carson ends up waking up in a hospital bed with stitches, bruised ribs and a concussion while Leila does not even have a scratch.Leila is not forthcoming with the events that lead to these circumstances. There is more to Leila than meets the eye.This paranormal [...]

    17. I freaking LOVED this book! Jasinda Wilder never fails to deliver. Djinn and Tonic is mesmerizing and utterly addictive! A contemporary paranormal romance filled to the brim with heated passion, diversity, exceptional wording, action, and riveting characters. This book is not only plot-driven, but the character development is so rich and intriguing. The author's talent for description is unparalleled. Pair that with a quick moving plot, a forbidden romance, ancient mythology, and sizzling chemis [...]

    18. The idea was just too good to pass up but the executionwasn't my favorite. Leila's whole push and pull routine and the secrets that were so badly kept were almost too much for me and i almost DNFed this a lot of times. I stayed because I liked the idea, it was different. I don't read a lot about Djinns being good guys - or girls, so I was very intrigued. The whole heroine's family being of Arabic & Middle Eastern origin was also quite new for me. I admit I don't stray from my typical Caucasi [...]

    19. Jasinda Wilder4.5 magical stars.When Detective Carson meets Leila Najafi tending bar at the pub he frequents, he never imagined he could feel such an incredible connection with a woman.

    20. Carson and LeilaGood storyline, but a HUGE jump in weirdness from the 1st book to the 2ndIt felt a little rushed to me.d before you know it - the story endsInteresting read nevertheless

    21. This book picks up pretty much right where the previous book lets off.

Despite the fact things are not adding up with Leila, Carson decides to pursue her anyway. So the book starts off promising, you have a fight within the first couple of chapters. However, the book for me quickly derail [...]

    26. 4 Stars|| The second novel in The Houri Legend's series was a fast paced and fun ride. I can honestly say I enjoy it just as much as the first. It is a nice change to read an out of the box paranormal like this and Jasinda delivered it wonderfully.I was a fan of the first book, but this novel blew that one away.
