Article first published as eBook Review: Silver Screen Dream by Victoria Blisse on Blogcritics.
Part of Total-E-Bound’s Bollywood series of books, Silver Screen Dream is another hot title penned by Victoria Blisse. It is also the first book in Victoria’s Djinn’s Amulet Series. This first title introduces us to Johnny, a djinn. He’s bound to Bollywood star Rahul after being passed down through Rahul’s family. You’d think being a djinn wouldn’t be all that difficult, but unfortunately for Johnny, his master isn’t the easiest man to deal with.
The story begins with Rahul making a visit to a British premiere of one of his films. There’s nothing unusual in that, of course, but unbeknownst to everyone else, Rahul is planning on staying in the UK for as long as he can, in order to avoid an arranged marriage he wants no part of. Unfortunately, though Johnny is bound to do what his master tells him, he has one order from his previous master that will override anything that Rahul wants – he must ensure that the arranged marriage goes ahead.
Just to make matters worse, Rahul has fallen in love with a British Bollywood fan – Laura. Johnny really has his work cut out for him. He’s going against the wills of Rahul and Laura, not to mention Rahul’s intended bride, in order to make an unwanted marriage happen, because it’s his job. But what will happen when true love is thrown into the mix?
I really enjoyed Silver Screen Dream. It’s interesting the way it’s been written from the perspectives of two characters; Johnny and Laura, which gives you an insight into two sides of the story. Victoria Blisse has done a really good job with this tale, it’s imaginative, sexy and full of her trademark humour. I’m definitely looking forward to reading the other titles in this series.
