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!
Tessa: GAH! I can’t stop thinking about it, especially that ending. It doesn’t end on a CH, but it’s the end of her first year at the academy, but that end. Filthy Rich Boys by CM Stunich. If Grey read RH, I’d be pushing this book so much. The bullying and the story and then that ending. GAH! SOOOO GOOOD! … OMG, the tension is there, but that end… It truly was not what I was expecting. Jaw dropping but not a CH. It was “year one” of the series. Both are KU. 🙂
REVERSE HAREM FANS!!! Tons of great reviews on these, and book #1 is super-bargain priced right now.
OMG I love the premise of this!! “In the New Republic, every woman must marry five men. It’s the law. Welcome to the apocalypse.” Yikes!! And the fact that they’re chosen by raffle? Who knows what will happen… 😉
Kim: Reverse Harems: I have read two and quite enjoyed them! I read “Theirs to Protect” and “Theirs to Pleasure” by Stasia Black.
Nix never put his name in the marriage raffle for a reason. He doesn’t need a woman. There aren’t that many to go around anyway after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 90% of the female population. He has his job as head of the Security Squadron and it’s all he need. He looks out for the township. He protects the few women there are left.
Tessa: OH! For RH lovers, Tessa Cole’s series, The Nephilim’s Destiny, is insanely good. The romance is a slower build but the characters, plot and overall arc is awesome.
And each one is a “mystery” that ends in HFN with the overall storyline going through all the books.
About book #1:
I’m Officer Essie Shaw, and I shouldn’t exist. If anyone finds out their friendly neighborhood beat cop is a nephilim — public enemy number one — I’ll be imprisoned. Or worse, dissected. I survive by keeping my head down and my barely-there magic under wraps.
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.
