I received an ARC for this book and voluntarily read and reviewed it. Kimberly Loth continues to amaze me with her wide range of writing niches. She doesn’t stick to one thing, but instead mixes it up and we never know what to expect next. The Smoking Lamp brings us into the world of genies and what a thrilling spin it is to read. She has given us a refreshing take to the genie genre. Liv and Gabe are two great characters and the tension between them is palpable. The plot moves well and I didn’t feel as though there were any hiccups. The characters are well developed and she has created an amazing main character in Liv. It was easy to place myself in the middle of the action and watch everything unfold as though it was a movie. There is so much to this series with only one book and that can be built on in the future. I can not wait to get my hands on the next book because man, Kimberly Loth knows how to hit us right in the feels. Right. In. The. Feels.
“I exhaled, disappointed, and yet excited. This anticipation, this thrill of the wait, was exhilarating. Eventually I would secure that kiss, but in some ways, I hoped we had a few more interruptions.”
