Jinn and Juice (The Jinni #1) by Nicole Peeler

Cursed to be a jinni for a thousand years, Leila nears the end of her servitude—only to be bound once again against her will. Will she risk all to be human?

Born in ancient Persia, Leila turned to her house Jinni, Kouros, for help escaping an arranged marriage. Kouros did make it impossible for her to marry—by cursing Leila to live a thousand years as a Jinni herself.

If she can remain unBound, Leila's curse will soon be over. But Ozan Sawyer, a Magi with the ability to See, Call, and Bind jinn has other plans. 
Oz needs Leila to help him penetrate Pittsburgh's steel-soaked magic, a juice potent but poisonous to supernatural creatures, in order to find a missing girl with her own mysterious connection to Kouros. Unfortunately for Leila, becoming Bound to Oz may risk more than just her chance to be human once more—it could risk her very soul...

My review:
I am always looking for something different. This is a different kind of love story.  Jinn and Juice introduces you to a whole world of paranormal characters including those that are misfits like Leila a human cursed to be a Jinni for a thousand years unless she is bound when the time is up then she will be cursed for another thousand years etc.  Needless to say Leila doesn’t have the best attitude but she is unbound and her sentence is up in 35 days.  Or is she?  Enter our hero Ozan Sawyer, a Magi with the ability to See, Call, and Bind jinn, who is on a quest and needs Leila’s help willing or not.    
I had a bit of trouble getting started (mostly because of Leila’s attitude) but then got sucked in and couldn’t put it down.  This is a terrifically scary and wonderful world.  I was a little put out by the ending but will race to buy the next book if only to see what happens next.
