My friend Rachel likes big books and she cannot lie. Well, neither can I. Someone out there in internet land wrote an entire version of “I like big butts”, but with books. It’s pretty funny, but I’m not about to quote the whole thing. Ha. I may be a little sleep deprived. Can you tell?
I enjoy a great book whether it’s novella, or the size of the Detroit phone book. This post is for those who love big, uh thicc…books (yeah, books) that they can curl up into their favorite reading place and read for the day. Hopefully you find new reading material here, if not maybe a reread. As always, Happy Reading! – Quare Eligere
They look like us, know all about us, and can even blend in perfectly. That doesn’t make them human.
When an alien science vessel crashes into the shore of Haven, Hailey has a front row seat. Little does she know that her normal life is about to be turned upside down by the man she bumps into on her way home. He looks completely human.
He also can’t stop thinking about her. There’s something about this girl but he can’t quite figure out what it is. Humans are aggressive and primitive, but she’s nothing like that. He only knows because he can’t make himself stay away from her.
And she’s the only one not getting sick.
Because the crash brought more than just strange aliens to Earth. It also released bacteria that humans have never experienced. The clock is ticking and human medicine can’t even detect the pathogens spreading through the population. Humanity’s only hope for survival lies with one alien doctor – and he needs a miracle. Lucky for him, it comes in the form of the woman he can’t get enough of.
Helping him might kill her. Not helping definitely will. Introducing her to the rest of his people? Well, it might be the riskiest move yet – because he won’t be the only one unable to resist her allure. But if they want to get back to their homeworld, sacrifices will need to be made.
The entire world.
Something has to give. The only question is what.
Bioluminescent is a 140,000 word complete story that is the beginning to a new epic series by Auryn Hadley. This is a slow burn romance with multiple love interests so may not be suitable for all readers.
I was born of nothing.
I’m a Void, a rare supernatural capable of absorbing powers at the brush of my skin.
Feared. Hated. Untouchable.
Thibault Academy is full of supernaturals that want me dead, and the most powerful of them, the Paragons, will stop at nothing to ensure I go back to the hell I came from. They’re cruel, heartless, and have created an unlikely alliance to take me down.
If I want to learn how to control the nothingness, I’ll have to survive them.
I was born of the void, but I’ll die from the power.
This is a reverse harem bully romance.
We aren’t her saviors. We’re her worst nightmare.
We’ve been called vicious monsters. Brutal. Cold. Savage.
We rule the criminal underworld the same way we rule our pack—with absolute control. We take what we want, and demand complete obedience.
When she comes to us, she’s damaged. Fragile. Wounded. And oh so tempting.
Soft skin, haunted eyes, and a darkness inside her that sets us on edge.
She’s not broken… yet. But that’s what we do best.
For thirty days she belongs to us, the Baron Alphas. She’s our property, to do with as we please.
She thinks it’ll be easy. That we’ll have mercy on her. That we’ll use a gentle touch. And that she’ll be able to walk away from us at the end of the month.
Our little fawn will come to know our cruel strength. She’ll see the fierce beasts prowling inside us. Feel the hunger of the wolf’s teeth against her throat.
And she’ll beg for more.
Fairy Tales aren’t just for children anymore…
When I was a little girl, my mother told me I was a princess, and that one day, I’d be surrounded by princes. Together, she said, my princes and I would do great things.
But that was before I knew about death, torture, or wicked stepmothers. That was before my entire world became a living hell.
Now, I’m not a child anymore, and I don’t believe in bullshit like fairy tales and happy ever afters. By day, I attend the University of Freiburg. By night, I stalk the forest, searching for the monsters that stole my mother from me and ruined my life. After all these years, I didn’t really expect to find them. It’s not as if there are witches and charmed cottages and hot-as-hell warriors just hiding the Black Forest, am I right?
Yeah, you guessed it. I’m wrong. There’s far more hiding in the shadows than I could have imagined, and nothing will ever be the same again.

There are three key components required to get into the most prestigious, top spy academy in the world:
My name is Silver Spell Solange. No, I didn’t plan for my initials to be the same rank needed to enter the special spy academy. But I would do anything to get into the one of a kind school. I have the magical capability of an Elemental Witch, the strength to kick anyone’s ass, and quick problem-solving skills to get my teammates out of any jam. There’s only one small problem – the other ‘S’ I’m missing.
I’m not a part of the supernatural race.
After realizing that my only shot at my dreams is at the brink of extinction, I’m unexpectedly teamed up with a werewolf, a dragon, a fallen angel, and a hellhound. The four of them carry the assets and abilities I need to gain my spot into The Supernatural Spy Academy(SSS).
With the clock ticking and not much leg room for an SS score, I accept their bet, knowing I’ll easily handle whatever they request from me.
I didn’t think their bet would lead me to date all four them.
It’s time for me to buckle up. This four-year roller coaster is about to begin, and its a bumpy one-way ticket to becoming the next “supernatural” spy.
This is a 130,000 words RH Academy Romance. Rated 18+
Cruel. Heartless. Quarantined.
The ruthless boys of Everlake Prep never saw lockdown coming.
But the virus isn’t their number one enemy.
And as if being confined to a boarding school for the elite wasn’t bad enough, now I’m stuck in isolation with the boys who hate me most too.
Saint, Kyan and Blake. The Night Keepers. Or so they call themselves. They’ve embodied the Native American legend which lives in this valley, taking on the role of the monsters who lurk in the forest. And though they act like beasts, they may also be the most tempting creatures I’ve ever seen.
With the virus escalating and my dad’s name splashed through the news, my entire world is falling apart. What he did has cast a dark shadow over me. And the Night Keepers want to make me pay for his crimes.
Then things went from bad to worse when I touched the sacred rock. A rock which supposedly holds a curse to bind me as the Night Keepers’ slave. And as crazy as it sounds, I decided to play along. Because there are things about me they don’t know. Things my dad has hidden from me for years. All I can be sure of is that I have to find a way to escape this school. But until then, those savage boys are making my life a living hell.
As the virus sweeps through the country and the world twists into something ugly and unknown, the kings of this school become true monarchs. Even the teachers bow to them now. And I’m kinda glad about that ‘stay six feet away from one another’ rule, because without it, I know they’d rip me apart.
At least there’s a silver lining. I’m cosying up to Coach Monroe. My hot as hell, brooding P.E. teacher who has a vendetta of his own against the Night Keepers. And with his help, I may succeed at doing more than escaping the clutches of these heartless fiends. I might even destroy them along the way.
My father taught me how to be strong.
How to prepare for the end of the world.
So this isn’t going to be the end of my world, mark my words.
But if I’m able to use my mind and body to bring these assholes to their knees, it might just be the end of theirs.
This is a high school bully reverse harem series which means the main character will end up with multiple love interests. It may have triggers for some as it has off the charts angst, dark love-hate themes, scenes of intense bullying, sexual scenes and some violence (not aimed towards the main character) and is not for the faint of heart. Prepare to enrol at Everlake Prep. Bring your hand sanitiser, face masks and toilet paper to barter with, but don’t expect to hold onto them for long. Because it’s time to go into quarantine with the Night Keepers. And everything you own now belongs to them.
The only way to escape is to die.
For eighteen years I’ve suffered at the hands of the Hunters. For eighteen years they’ve done their best to break me, to tear me open and unleash the terrifying monster that lives within.
Until the day they go too far.
When a desperate escape leads to another brush with death, I’m forced to place my trust in the hands of four formidable strangers. Wild and untamed, their feral natures call to me, their warrior hearts make mine come alive. And when they offer me a place to stay while I heal, I can’t say no.
But the secrets I carry are deadly, and my past is a twisted, evil nightmare better left forgotten.
They may think they want to know me, they may think the secrets they guard behind hard eyes and closed expressions comes close to the ones I keep. But should they ever discover just who they’ve let into their home, just what I really am…their hatred could be the one thing that finally breaks me.
And if I break, the darkness inside me will finally be free.

No one screws with my family.
My sister and I are human orphans raised by the world’s best assassin, taught to steal and kill our way through the dragonlands under her watchful eye. Grown men fear us, and no one knows we’re coming until it’s too late to run.
Irena and I—we’re good. The best. In a dog-eat-dragon kind of world, we have to be. But someone betrayed us. Someone we trusted with our lives.
Irena is missing. My mentor is gone. And as for me… the man responsible for this mess thought he killed me. He kicked me into a pit, and he left me to die.
But I don’t give up that easy.
In the darkness, facing death itself, I fused with dragons. I had no choice. This is ancient magic, and dangerous people want it. They want me, dead or alive, and they’ll start a war if that’s what it takes to control me.
The magic I discovered—the magic these brutal people want—it’s mine, plain and simple. No one can take it from me. And I’m coming back from the dead.
For blood. For vengeance.

No one wants to be sent to Academie Metamorphose, the magical academy for delinquents.
No one but me.
I’ve purposely gotten kicked out of three prestigious academies. It’s taken two and a half years.
Finally, I’m about to get put into their reform program.
And I’m thrilled.
Not about the shit classes at this boarding school. Definitely not about the intense physical regimen.
I’m excited because this academy is the perfect recruiting grounds for what I need: a force, a detonator, and a tock with loose morals and an affinity for breaking the rules.
I need a powerful, heartless crew, because I’m about to pull off the magical heist of the century.
Author’s Note: This is a medium burn reverse harem romance intended for adult audiences.
Ryder, Garrett, Kenzo, and Diesel—The Vipers.
They run this town and everyone in it. Their deals are as sordid as their business, and their reputation is enough to bring a grown man to his knees, forcing him to beg for mercy. They are not people you mess with, yet my dad did. The old man ran up a debt with them and then sold me to cover his losses.
Yes, sold me.
They own me now.
I’m theirs in every sense of the word. But I’ve never been meek and compliant. These men, they look at me with longing. Their scarred, blood-stained hands holding me tight. They want everything I am, everything I have to give, and won’t stop until they get just that. They can own my body, but they will never have my heart.
The Vipers? I’m going to make them regret the day they took me.
This girl? She bites too.
*18+ Reverse Harem Romance. Warning this book contains scenes and references of abuse/assault that some readers may find triggering. Along with graphic sex scenes and violence. This is a dark book.*
One grim reaper. Three hellhounds who refuse to bow down to her. A monster hunting them in the shadows…
Ten years ago, I was judged worthy of life after death and returned to the mortal realm as a grim reaper. Scythe in hand, I guide souls to deliverance–and it’s time for a promotion.
My new territory is triple the size of any I’ve worked before. High death rates mean one busy reaper, and the only way to keep up is with a pack of hellhounds. Faithful. Strong. Merciless. Hellhound shifters are a reaper’s right hand in the field, shepherding and guarding souls until they can be reaped.
We get our pick of the litter from the best breeders in Hell, but for some reason, I’m drawn to the pack no one wants.
An alpha who refuses to yield.
A beta who doesn’t take me seriously.
A runt who flinches at every command.
I want them–even if they don’t want me.
Because the hunger in their eyes tells a different story. But the fact that they can’t decide whether to love me or hate me, fight me or screw me, is making our situation way too complicated.
Still, I refuse to give up. If this infuriatingly handsome trio can’t be trained, if we don’t pass the trials, they go back to a cage and a cruel demon master.
Yeah. Not happening.
Reapers and hellhounds are natural allies, and the sooner we secure our bond, the better, because as it turns out…
All our lives depend on it.

When it comes down to acclaim in the yearbook, my class rank would probably earn me my only entry, but probably very little else. I don’t wear cosmetics, do my hair or really give a damn about my appearance in general. I don’t need to be cool, and I’ve managed my high school career navigating all the different groups from the nerds to the jocks to the theatre kids and the band geeks.
Kicking off senior year, my only focus is to make every AP class count and keep my grades up. Shouldn’t be hard, particularly with my so-called untouchable status. Oh yeah, imagine that—I had a reputation. Hadn’t been a blip on my radar until the end of junior year when one of the girls’ dropped that little nugget on me. Apparently, the guys at school considered me the best girl to hang out with for fun or homework, but nothing else.
While I’m not looking for a date, it’s a little hard to swallow that I ranked as the best bud and tutor, but would definitely never fall into the Girl Most Likely To Get Asked Out.
Pfft. What did I care? One more year and I was off to college, so what if the numbers of female friends I used to have drifted off and I’d scored a permanent seat in the friend zone. I had subjects to study, grades to maintain, and colleges to get into. Fine, I didn’t care about the rules or status before, and I wouldn’t now.
181 class days to go, and I’ll graduate. No problem, right?
*Please note this is a reverse harem and the author suggests you always read the forward in her books. Contains some bullying elements, mature situations, and is recommended for 17+. This is the first in a series and the story will continue through future books.
“We’re going to own you.”
“We’re going to break you.”
“When we’re through with you, you won’t remember life before you were ours.”
That’s what they whisper as I pass their cells.
Ha. Guess what bastardos? I’m Rosalie Oscura, champion underground cage-fighter and freaking Alpha Werewolf from the infamous Oscura Clan. My family wrote the book on criminal organisations and I’ll be ruling this place by the time the next moon rises.
Papà always said my hot head would land me in here one day. The supernatural prison they call Darkmore Penitentiary. Where they send the cruellest, most dangerous Fae in Solaria. Like me apparently.
I’ve always had a thing for Alpha males, but the ones in here don’t have a thing for me. Especially after what I did to them…
I accidentally insulted a ruthless Lion Shifter and riled up his army of cutthroat followers.
I may have enraged the sinful Incubus who’s been condemned to isolation for committing an unspeakable crime.
Despite my better judgement, I taunted the sinister Vampire guard who has a dark vendetta against me.
And I kinda deceived the black-hearted Werewolf who rules over my sworn enemies. Though I blame fate for that one – bitch never was on my side.
I don’t know why I’m surprised, I always did have a knack for getting into trouble.
Just look at my criminal record:
Driving Under the Influence of the Moon (I’m a Werewolf, I’m always under the influence of the moon, duh)
One count of MIPS – Minor in Possession of Stardust (I’m just glad they never figured out why I was using it)
Bedazzlement (I can’t help it if I dazzle people into giving me their money)
Alpha Wolf Status Abuse (It’s calling being a leader, idiotas)
Hijacking a Pegasus and riding him through a rainbow on private property (Totally his idea)
Coercing two members of law enforcement to dance naked on the top of their vehicle for seven hours (What’s not hilarious about that?)
Bank Robbery (All that gold was getting lonely stuck in that vault)
Murdering a security guard (Alright I regret that one, but it was a total accident)
So maybe I deserve to be in prison, but do you want to know a secret?
I planned to get sent to Darkmore Penitentiary.
I’ve come to break out the most notorious criminal in Solaria.
The trouble is, I need the help of the four Alpha males to get out of here. And they happen to hate each other almost as much as they hate me.
But I always did love a challenge.
How hard could it be to make them accept me as their leader?
This is an RH set in the world of Solaria after the events of Zodiac Academy and Dark Fae and contains some character crossover but can be read as a standalone series without having read the other books.
Idioms are what we idiots tell ourselves to make us feel better. They’re all lies.
Truth sets you free. Ha.
Justice is blind. Hardly.
Life ends when you die. Wrong!
All’s fair in love and war. Fine. I’ll give you that one. But you’d be wise to remember Fate isn’t fair, kind, or gentle.
How do I know?
I almost died. I say almost because a moment before my last breath, Judgment found me. I don’t know what he saw in me but with one kiss, he changed me irrevocably.
My name is Dahlia. I am fate.
No, I am definitely not fair.
*Please note this is a reverse harem and the authors suggests you always read the forward in their books. Warning, this is a standalone tale with a fierce and feisty heroine, three heroes who are forces of nature, and a tale as old as time, humor, and a little bit of karmic justice thrown in.
I knew I’d ruffle feathers, but the day I walked into Rockport High, I had no idea the cheap shots that were to follow.
You see, the Ballers and I have a history. They play basketball. I play basketball. But they hate that I play basketball as good as them. And the only thing they hate more than that, is me.
That’s right. I’m a girl, and I. Can. Play. Make no mistake about it.
The Ballers can do their worst, but I will earn a spot on the RHS boys’ team. This is my last resort to make a name for myself, and I can’t let them interfere—even if the so-called kings of the school have declared war against me.

My mantra has always been: this too shall pass.
But not today.
