Academy, College, or School Based Reverse Harems List – Part 3

“There’s too many Academy books out right now!” – Said no one ever. However, I feel like they will be winding down before too long for the next popular trope. That’s just how things work in the book world. *shrugs* If you’re curious why there is such a large concentration of Academy’s & Bully RH’s, I might be able to shed a little light on that. Indie authors need to follow the bouncing ball. They follow what’s popular for readers, and poof we receive more books. Before social media the author’s could set the tone for what was popular. Now with social media the fans tend to control what is popular. I apologize if you’ve seen some of these same titles before on other lists. If you did it is because they will have more than 1 trope element. I promise I am not trying to be repetitive. As always, Happy Reading! – Quare Eligere

Goddess Academy by Clara Hartley
Goddess Academy by Clara Hartley
Amazon Description

Welcome to the Sanctuary

Here, potential goddesses are spirited away...

...and are given servants?

After a horrible break up with my ex-boyfriend, I meet a man with a goat's head.

Yep.

A goat's head.

He takes me to an academy where I'm told I'm the daughter of a Greek god. There isn't anything particularly god-like about me, except for wicked ukulele skills, so I'm taken by surprise.

But never mind my lack of powers. I'm more concerned about the four men who are assigned to me—my vassals.

Two of them are happy to serve me. I'm more than okay with licking them. The other two, though?

They don't seem to want me on their team.

Ugh. Why can't everybody just get along?

Blackbriar Academy (5 book series) by Olivia Ash
Amazon Description

From Book 1: An academy reverse harem fantasy romance series.

I shouldn’t be here, and everyone knows it.

Blackbriar Academy is an enchanted school on a magical island, and everyone wants in. It’s a home away from home for the most advanced mages in the world—and only the absolute best of the best are given an invitation.

By some freak accident, I managed to get one.

If I pass the trials, I get to stay. With nowhere else to go, Blackbriar is my one shot at having a real life, and I won’t let anyone take this from me.

But there’s a catch.

It turns out the people on this island are being trained to hunt the darkness—basically, they’re being trained to hunt me.

To survive, I have to hide what I am. As a half-mage, I shouldn't have any magic at all. And yet, my natural abilities are almost impossibly powerful—and incredibly illegal. Over history, magic like mine has corrupted the souls of those who were born with it. They’ve all gone dark—razing towns and murdering hundreds of thousands throughout history.

All but me, and I have no idea why.

As the trials get more and more challenging, it’s clear I’m being hunted. If I’m caught… I die.

At Blackbriar Academy, nothing is ever as it seems... but I have nowhere else to go.

Nothing, and no one, will stand in my way.

The Trials of Blackbriar Academy is a full-length novel with a powerfully magical heroine, a riveting storyline, and an alternative relationship dynamic that supports our badass heroine's right to choose more than one man. Get ready for a heart-pounding story filled with an academy fantasy romance unlike anything you’ve read before.

Buckle in for heart-pounding action, breathtaking magic, deadly assassins, four drop-dead gorgeous leading men, lots of toned muscles, and most importantly—a young woman’s journey of justice, self-discovery, and freedom.

Impetuous (Victory Lap Book 1) by Mercedes Jade
Impetuous (Victory Lap Book 1) by Mercedes Jade
Amazon Description

What if you had to hit pause on your life and rewind? Just when you were ready to fast forward, prepared for anything but your past skipping through your victory lap.

Tess Sinclair thought she had it all figured out, or at least, locked down for those last few months of prerequisite classes and working weekend shifts to earn tuition. One phone call from child services changes all her plans and she is forced to move back home.

Maddy. Mad as sin. Mom.

Tess may have turned eighteen, but now she feels like an adult going backwards. There are sibling fights to break up without joining them. Dinner recipes to fake from the can because her mother's too medicated to recite the ingredients. Being the new girl at the final year at high-school is a whole other level of teenage torture that she should have outgrown.

Ditto to boy crushes.

The good boy gone bad, his devilishly smart twin, and the hot jock that normally wouldn't give her the time of day, forget make a play. All led by a dark prince that finds out her sneakers are made of glass. They ought to be the kings of the school and Tess the poor, bullied girl from the wrong side of the tracks. This Cinderella tale has been told before, with a charming but predictable ending.

Except, no one seems to have gotten the tropes right. The prince has a wicked stepmother. The jock struggles to hide he has more brains than brawn. The rich, heartthrob twins are bullied by the masses instead of put on a pedestal. Tess is the only one willing to come to their rescue.

Can she figure out the hidden secret twisting their roles?

If Tess can't run, then she'll learn to fight fate to get her victory lap to the finish line.

Warnings/Triggers for references to mental health, institutionalization and stereotypes. Mention of child abuse/neglect. There is adult intimacy, violence and language as well as the usual drugs and alcohol with these darker themes. Oh, and lame jokes. I have plenty of those. Some may offend since they can take a religious tone as I poke fun of the Catholic school. You were warned.

In this book the main female character ends up with multiple love interests at the end of the series in a HFN.

+++

How about a 'bully themes' RH book with a different twist? The MFC comes to the rescue of her bullied harem and they work together to overcome their challenges.

I would NOT group this with other bully romances out there and don't want to disappoint anyone expecting otherwise. This book contains bullying of the main characters but not to each other, which is the twist, a bully romance where the harem comes together to deal with it.

Manicures and Mayhem (Beautiful Beasts Book 1) by Mila Young
Amazon Description

I never considered myself special... far from it. But when my father told me I'm marrying a demon, I did the next best thing. I opted to attend a supernatural academy to escape. Next thing I know, I'm whisked away to a placed filled with shifters and vampires. There is no welcome committee with my father being the Master Vampire in town. Instead, I'm an outcast and on everyone's hit list. When I find a dead body in my room, I definitely know I'm in over my head. It seems everyone is set to remind me of my place… including the three devastatingly handsome wolf shifters who are paying me too much attention. And falling for them is asking for trouble when they are my family's direct enemy. I know I should escape, but that's not an option with what is waiting for me beyond the academy walls, so I have to fight for what I want. Fate has a crappy sense of humor, way worse than mine, and it seems my destiny is filled with danger and temptations.

Amazon Description

I am not normal.Unlike many high school heroines in fantasy books, I always knew I was not ordinary. Far from it. Since I was two, I have been seeing angels and demons.

So when my ordinary family moved us to San Francisco to a new school where my father teaches, I didn't think much of the school. Shadowlight Academy, the most exclusive and posh prep academy for the super rich. I thought I would be there to slay the evil like an undercover superhero amongst the ordinary. I just didn't think the ordinary would all be extremely unordinary. Especially the three most popular kids in school. Then there's the hot brooding rebel boy who didn't seem to fit in, too. Everyone here has secrets, and I am determined to find out what, before it kills me...the entire Academy and even the world. Okay, I might be dramatizing a bit, but yes, from what I've barely seen...it could be that big. Better get my game gear on and my entire armor on, because this is going to be one epic battle. But who can I trust?The Beautiful Ones, which rule Shadowlight Academy is known to be both beautiful yet wicked. They're fascinated with me as I am of them. But who or what are they really, and why do I feel drawn to them like a fly to a spider? Can I escape their beautiful web before I am trapped forever?

Quantum Academy: A Reverse Harem Academy Romance (Paranormal Academy) by Savannah Rose
Amazon Description

How many times does a girl have to die before she's actually dead? Three lovers... Three dimensions... Death is what brings them together, but it's also what's keeping them apart. One more death could mean the end. One more death could mean the beginning. The only way to find out, is to die. Simple... that's what my life had been before I found myself in this mess. One death led to another. And that death to another. There was so much in common with all these dimensions I found myself in. For starters, Quantum Academy still existed. I was still a student there. Still a witch with spells that wouldn't quite land the way they should. Spells that, for example, were the reason I ended up dead in the first place. So much was also different in each of the dimensions. At least, a lot different from my origin. Each dimension had a man who believed a part of their soul danced in perfect harmony with a part of mine. I'd have been a fool to convince myself that I didn't feel it too. There was only one problem. The more time I spent with each of my soulmates, the harder it became to pry my heart away from them. Splitting love between more than one dimension...it felt impossible. Doing it while fighting the kind of magic that threatened to end the world, now that was the real task. Quantum Academy is a Reverse Harem Paranormal Academy Romance, fit for readers who like witches, warlocks, demons and disasters. A strong female lead and no urge or need to choose between one hottie or the other, means you'll get the best of all worlds.
Half-Blood Academy 1: Magic Trials by Meg Xuemei X
Half-Blood Academy 1: Magic Trials by Meg Xuemei X
Amazon Description

“We need to mate,” I said firmly.
“How?” he asked, darting his wild glance at the iron bars between us then at me.

"Welcome to Half Death Academy." That's what they call my new school—because only half the students survive.

Rule #1: Keep your head down and don't mess with the four gorgeous demigods who rule the school.
Rule #2: When the demigods try to kill you, lie down and die.

Too bad I never was very good at following the rules. And when my forbidden power awakens, I'll make them regret they try to make me their bitch.

Magic Trials stars four handsome and cruel demigods and a tough heroine. Heart-pounding action blends with steamy romance.

Thoughts from Paige

I'm confused about how old our MC is, and her potential LI alternated between calling her woman and girl in his mind which made me a tiny bit uncomfortable.  However, I am intrigued with the setup and have added this to my TBR pile.

Rogue Academy: A Reverse Harem Paranormal Academy Romance (Rogue Vampire Academy Book 1) by Savannah Rose
Amazon Description

Street rat. Scoundrel. Thief. MURDERER. Those are all names I’ve been called. Names that were fitting at one time or another. But you don’t throw a vampire into a foster home and expect her to come out a model citizen, do you? And you sure as hell don’t feed her Mac and Cheese with a side of lashings and expect her to roll over and play dead. Even more, you don’t offer her up to men twice her age and permit them to hang their soggy bits at the base of her chin without expecting her to bite it the heck off. Despite the murderous bone in my body, I didn’t wreak havoc on my foster home – at least not the kind that leads to death. Instead, I did what any girl as hard-headed and short-sighted as I am would do. I LEFT. Rogue Academy is a Paranormal Academy Romance, fit for readers who like, vampires, shifters, fierce, strong, female leads and the need to not have to choose between one hottie or the other. Sometimes, both quality and quantity matter.

I’m a witch by birth and an arsonist by accident, but I never thought I’d find myself in a place like this. Cimmerian Reform Academy, called ‘the Cage’ by its students, was once an asylum, but now I’m forced to call it home. My roommate hates me, the Headmistress has a sinister agenda, and worst of all, students have a habit of dying young and fast in the Cage. If I don’t watch my step, I might be the next to go, but help could come from dangerous places… for a price. Roman and Shane were imprisoned for illegal shifting, and they look at me like they want to rip off my clothes with their fangs.

And in the darkness beneath the Cage lurks the most deadly of predators- Locke, a vampire who walks through my dreams with a thirst for more than my blood.

Fallen University: Year One: A Paranormal Romance by Callie Rose
Amazon Description

Did you know ordinary people can be turned into demons? I sure didn’t. Until it happened to me. One day, I was a regular college student, working a boring job and studying for finals—and the next, I was transformed into some strange creature of the night. Now I’ve got powers I don’t understand, I can change my appearance with a thought, and I’m having all kinds of odd… cravings. If I thought all this was gonna get me out of going to college though, I’ve got another think coming. Nope, I still need an education. Except the classes at Fallen University are on things like “Curses and Hexcraft” and “Magical Combat”. It’s not all bad. There are these four sexy as sin guys I keep bumping into—Kingston, Jayce, Xero, and Kai. I’m not sure if I should trust them; they’ve each got secrets of their own, and they’re definitely dangerous. But that craving I’ve been having? It’s pulling me right toward them. Yup, things are about to get real interesting at FU. This is book one of the Fallen University trilogy, a reverse harem romance with a slightly snarky heroine and four gorgeous, supernatural men. It includes cursing and lots of steam.

Amazon Description

I've dealt with my share of homelessness. I've endured being the bad gal in the room. I’ve taken a lot of life’s punches on the chin. But never did I expect to be forced to attend an academy full of power-hungry delinquents. Born with powers far too great to control, I ended up homeless at eight years old. With my family gone, I lived on the streets, learning quickly that the world was just as cold as my beating heart. Because I carry all eight magic elements, enemies sought me out from every dark corner. Luckily, I was saved and taken in by Alaric Masters, headmaster of Tracker Hive Academy. My name is Jade Storm, and I’m the youngest recruit to become a Tracker. Now that I'm eighteen, Alaric is insisting that I attend the academy. I’ll do it, but on my own terms. My only goal is to learn just how powerful I am and breeze through the next four years. I have no interest in joining any cliques, and I’m not here to make friends. If there’s one thing life has taught me, it’s that I work best alone. However, the Troubled Four — Zeke, Zion, Zackery, and Zeus — have other plans. Quadruplets who together carry all eight elements, the boys are desperate to make me submit to their trickery. They’re stupid to think I’ll play by anyone's rules but my own. I can handle whatever threats, traps, bullying, and schemes are thrown my way, because I'm not here to be a good student. I'm here to keep my secret safe from those who will do everything to see me perish. Game on. This is an 18+ Academy Romance.

Spark (Academy of Unpredictable Magic Book 1)
Spark (Academy of Unpredictable Magic Book 1) by Sadie Moss
Amazon Description

Magic exists. I know—it’s in my blood.

Unfortunately, not all people from magical bloodlines have powers, and at 22, I’m several years past the age they usually appear. So I’ve resigned myself to a boring, magic-less life.

Then something strange happens…

I get stuck in the middle of a bar fight, and instead of just punching the guy back, I blow a hole in the wall.

So… I guess I do have powers. But they’re unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. This is definitely not normal.

And it seems the magical authorities agree, because they give me a choice: either I go to school to learn to control my crazy new magic, or they’ll take it away. Permanently.

Now if I can just survive the witchy mean girls determined to take me down a peg, the mysterious attacks on students, the three hot-as-hell guys who don’t seem turned off by my prickly exterior, and the professor who makes me long for detention, maybe I’ll get out of here in one piece.

Wouldn’t bet on it though.

Welcome to the Academy of Unpredictable Magic.

Spark is the first book in the Academy of Unpredictable Magic series, a medium-burn reverse harem story featuring a fierce chick and the four hot men who fall in love with her.
