Fiona: Another good book by Alta Hensley & Maggie Ryan “Bride to Keep: A Dark Reverse Harem” is a reverse harem novel which I know is every second book out now; however this is a bit of a dark read about the H who is coerced to marry 4 brothers who have a notorious background in the mafia….they want to protect their sister & believe that the H is a bad influence on their baby sister so they basically kidnap her & their relationship transpires from here….a v good read as sometimes the reverse harem stories can get a bit stale… but this keeps you on your toes!
I thought I hadn’t read reverse harems before, but realize one of my first urban fantasy series addictions was Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series (and oh boy does it ever evolve into a reverse harem situation). Oh yes it does.
And sure enough, when I started the “genre categories” section on the blog, I received requests for a “reverse harem” section.
SUPER-ANGSTY UNCONVENTIONAL LOVE STORY/ROCK STAR ROMANCE ALERT!!
ALSO… MAJOR BUDDY-READ ALERT BELOW!!! Lots of our reactions (some of us loved it and sobbed, some of us cringed and gasped. Some of us did ALL of that).
“Devastation masked in a love story. I see the appeal.”
Yesssss I can see why so many were hooked on this one (and this author). This is my very first time I’ve read this author, and she definitely “goes there” by way of angst, misconduct, swoon worthy moments, shocking situations and downward spirals. Thank goodness I had so many of you guys to buddy-read this with!
As the owner of The Wicked Horse, an elite sex club located along the Vegas Strip, Jerico Jameson never spends the night alone. Gorgeous, ripped, and totally alpha, Jerico doesn’t grant favors and will rarely give you the time of day—unless he wants you in his bed. So when the sister of his sworn enemy shows up asking for help, saying no should be easy. But when Jerico takes one look at her and sees an opportunity to help this beautiful woman while exacting revenge on her brother, he’s not about to pass that up.
Beaten and bruised, Trista Barnes is running out of options, and Jerico is her last chance to get out of the mess she’s in. She doesn’t know why Jerico despises her brother so much, but as long as he can help her, she doesn’t care. Jerico offers her safety while opening her up to a sinful world she never knew existed.
As she succumbs to Jerico’s erotic charm, Trista lets herself fall into the wicked world of guilt free pleasure with no regrets. Under his strong alpha hand, she blooms, and so does Jerico’s possessiveness. But what happens when Trista finds out she was a pawn in Jerico’s game all along, and that the price for his favor was steeper than she ever imagined – her heart.
Christy needs our book help! This one sounds like a thriller/romance ’cause it gets pretty wild in that description!
Proceed with caution ’cause it’s loaded in spoilers, but I warned with spoiler alerts before each big reveal. 😉 So you’ll know when to slow down. LOL!
I have another book that I would like help finding.
It is about a woman that leaves her boyfriend/husband. She moves away and gets a job with her best friend as an interior designer.
