Reverse Harems Featuring Olympians (The Greek Gods, Not the Athletes)

Hello, my friends!

The reader requested theme this week is Olympian Gods. I was quite surprised to find several series that appeared to have started and then been dropped. I didn’t include those since I hate starting a series only to find out it has been dropped.

I tried to stay true to limiting the post to Olympians, but in the end, I ended up with some demi-gods. 

Hopefully, this scratches the godly itch! Let me know if you have a hankering for any specific type of theme post. I am down to two right now, Not so Gentle Giant and Female Dom/Harem Sub, on my list, so keep em coming!

Be well, and Happy Reading!

Apollo Is Mine (Rise of Hades Book 1) by Mila Young
Apollo Is Mine (Rise of Hades Book 1) by Mila Young
Amazon Description

"If you kiss me, I won't be responsible for what happens next."

Lord of the Underworld, Hades has decided to leave his home and relocate to earth--my home town of Chicago to be exact.
This shouldn't have been a problem, except for the fact that cocky Hades is smexy-hot. I don't know if I want to punch him in the face or jump his bones. In some of my dreams, I'm doing both at the same time.
This is problematic because I've trained my whole life to eliminate monsters sent by the Gods to destroy humans... and for centuries my family has done everything in its power to stop them. But now I'm the last in my bloodline and a new threat stalks the streets.
Death. And he's leaving bodies in his wake.
Since Hades refuses to regain power over the beast, I'm left to clean up the mess.
But it turns out I won't have to do it alone. More gods come crashing into my life... and into my heart... warriors who are determined to claim me. Apollo, with his bright, intense love, Poseidon, the sea god, who's cool touch calms my inner darkness, then the brooding war god Ares with his fire and passion. And lastly there's still Hades who fills my dreams with lust and desire. And he has no intention of sharing me.
Except, I don't have time to play with the gods, I have a monster to catch. If I fail, I may lose, not only my humanity, but the gods I've grown to love.

This complete, paranormal romance series offers scorching hot, addictive stories that will leave you breathless and begging for you more!
These full length novels are mythology based fantasy romances that feature a monster slaying heroine and her hot Greek Gods. Be prepared for heart-thumping fights, steamy love, magic, prophecies, mythical creatures, fantasy, paranormal and mythology legends, and a hell of a lot of Hades!

Thoughts from Paige

I feel like this one started out slower than some, although it does begin with a sparring session.  It's been on my TBR pile for a while now, and it has a lot of good reviews on Amazon.  I have a feeling it picks up quickly, but we did need to learn the backstory and I do think the author did it cleverly.

Battlefield Love: Greek Mythology Reverse Harem Romance (Operation Cupid Book 1) by Skyler Andra
Battlefield Love: Greek Mythology Reverse Harem Romance (Operation Cupid Book 1) by Skyler Andra
Amazon Description

When a sassy and disillusioned phone operator gets a hold of the power of Cupid, watch out!

Love is for suckers.
Love is overrated.
Love makes you vulnerable.

Locke Casey knows all too well about being burned by love. But Cupid’s powers are taking hold whether she likes it or not! Now she's got the feels for the sexy and broody Rane, the mischievous and evasive Mads, and Byron, her college love who broke her heart. Opening her heart to love, and tapping into her Cupid powers-the good, bad and downright ugly-terrifies her. But a girl's gotta do, what a Love God wants her to do...

Battlefield Love is the first in a slow burn series with multiple love interests that will leave you breathless, protective alphas that won’t let you go, and a second chance at love.

Thoughts from Paige

Shoot, 54% through the sample and I'm feeling anxious for our MC. I'm getting a "the call is coming from inside the house" vibe. AHHHH. Love it.

Daughter of Persephone: A Reverse Harem Romance (Cerberus Book 1) by Helen Scott
Amazon Description

Poppy is nothing special.

She was making ends meet and trying to enjoy life. But a strange necklace caught her eye at the thrift store. Now, three gorgeous men have stumbled into her life, and she's torn between being terrified and excited. That is until they tell her she is the future queen of the Underworld.

Not only that, but she needs to bond with her hellhounds, the three heads of Cerberus, and protect the Underworld from a goddess who wants it for herself. Forced to face unnatural enemies, and too-sexy-for-their-own-good men, Poppy must choose: keep the life she's always had or take her rightful place as queen.

If she survives.

Thoughts from Paige

Sometimes I read the names of drinks from books and think I'd really like to try that in real life. Then realize that it's probably based on a real drink, and I'm just past that period in my life. Sigh. Nothing like the name of a drink to firmly remind you that you are past your clubbing days. I'd really like a Cindrella Number Five, for the record. I'm totally going to ask the hubs to order me one and see what happens.

Okay in all seriousness, I faced a dilemma with this one.  It features a giant of a man, which just so happens to be another theme post I'm working on at the moment. Drat! I ultimately decided it belonged with the god's theme more, but for those interested in a not so gentle giant, this may be a good one!

Fate of the Gods: A Reverse Harem Romance by Laura Wylde
Fate of the Gods: A Reverse Harem Romance by Laura Wylde
Amazon Description

Stranded on an island with 4 hot guys.

When Rose Wilson, a successful, beautiful model, boarded a plane in California bound for her home in New York, she never guessed that she'd be waking up only hours later on a deserted island, surrounded by four of the hottest men on the planet.

But all is far from fantasy.

Dazed and confused the group begins to realize that they may not be the only ones on the island.

Rose's burden only becomes more difficult to bear when she’s visited by characters who seem to have walked right off the pages of a Greek Mythology textbook. Unfortunately, they leave her with more questions than answers...

Rose has three days to figure it out, or face living out her days on a deserted island with four hot men...and that might just pose another question, would that really be so bad?

Thoughts from Paige

It's not often I mentally ding a book for formatting or grammar, but I had a really hard time visually reading the first paragraph.  It's almost the entire first page. It could have been the fact I was reading the sample on my computer, but I had to work really hard at reading it. One reviewer actually mentions it being tough to get into, but the number of positive reviews indicates it is a good book.

Goddess Academy: The Complete Reverse Harem Collection by Clara Hartley
Goddess Academy: The Complete Reverse Harem Collection 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?

The Goddess Academy contains five books of a paranormal reverse harem tale, filled with Greek gods, steamy scenes, and witty banter. Suitable for 18+.

Books included:

Goddess Academy
Waking the Goddess
The Goddess Quest
Goddess Wars
Reign of the Goddess

Thoughts from Paige

If a book makes me laugh or really even cracks a smile, during the sample, it is automatically added to my TBR list.  It's been a good day so far along those lines, and this one made me chuckle too.

Also, color me intrigued, I'm definitely reading this one.

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.

Hidden Legacy (Olympian Elemental Trials Book 1) by Rebecca Goodwin
Hidden Legacy (Olympian Elemental Trials Book 1) by Rebecca Goodwin
Amazon Description

Everyone knows the story of Pandora…

However every five thousand years, one of Pandora’s descendants must pass the trials of the gods and master each element to renew the one thing that keeps humans from sinking into misery and the evil of this world: hope.
Without hope, our world is doomed. The goddess, Hera, came to me and revealed the truth about my lineage. Now I have less than six months to learn how to use magic, and win these Olympian trials before time runs out.
But with the gods and Titans vying to control me, the last thing I need is to lose my heart to them. If I fail even one test, all of humanity will suffer for eternity.
No pressure.
Hidden Legacy is the first book in the steamy Adult Paranormal Romance with Greek Mythology.

**Note: This book is intended only for mature readers because of graphic language, violence, and sex. This series is a Slow Burn Reverse Harem which means that one member of the harem is acquired in each book as the series continues.**

Thoughts from Paige

As of this posting, the series is not available on Kindle Unlimted. As always, read the sample before you decide if the book is for you.

Mayhem In Hell: Demon Paranormal Romance (Hell To Pay Book 1) by Kaylin Peyerk
Mayhem In Hell: Demon Paranormal Romance (Hell To Pay Book 1) by Kaylin Peyerk
Amazon Description

I was supposed to die and go to heaven, too bad I ended up in hell.

Everyone wants to end up standing at the gates of Heaven, but I took a ninety-degree turn into Hell after my fatal car accident, waking up in a dark room with no one and nothing around me except for Adonis, the cheeky third prince of Hell with a killer smile, to tell me all about my impending judgment day.

Next thing I know I'm surrounded by not one, but three demon lords and their father Lucifer Morningstar. Each of them calls to me on a level I've never felt before, and when it's revealed just how deep the connection goes, it turns out that we'd all do anything to get rid of this curse. . . all the while I might be falling for them in the process.

So these days I've been thinking. . . What's the use in being good when it's so fun to be bad?

Disclaimer:

This book is a slow-burn reverse harem paranormal romance. It was constructed using various different religious ideas along with creativity, but the results are a fictional story based in Hell that deals with the classic light and evil debate. It is not in any way meant to offend any readers.

Thoughts from Paige

I am liking the start of this book! Seems like the author is playing fast and loose with mythology, and I am so here for it.

Monster Whisperer: A Dark Reverse Harem Romance (My Beautiful Monsters Book 1) by JB Trepagnier
Monster Whisperer: A Dark Reverse Harem Romance (My Beautiful Monsters Book 1) by JB Trepagnier
Amazon Description

My clients at my vet clinic have always called me an animal whisperer. I’ve never questioned it. Until I started hearing monsters too.

A man came in right at closing with a sick dog. The dog told me why he was sick and I was able to treat him. I had no idea his owner would kidnap me. I had no idea his owner had an entire dungeon of monsters he wanted me to treat. I’ve met a minotaur, a mysterious kraken, a phoenix, and this really massive spider.

I can hear them too. If monsters are real and I can talk to them, then what am I?

Thoughts from Paige

I have never heard of a breakup put quite the way the author did. HA!

"My last relationship ended so badly, I'd rather listen to a Schnauzer tell me his anal glands were full than even think about dating again. No, I'd squeeze all that stinky anal gland juice from a dog's butthole before I even thought about looking twice at a cute guy."

Seeking Their Souls (Mischief Matchmakers Book 6) by Jenee Robinson
Seeking Their Souls (Mischief Matchmakers Book 6) by Jenee Robinson
Amazon Description

Being one of the big three has it’s perks. My name is known far and wide, everyone's scared of me.

They got one detail wrong in the history books.

I am Hades, but I'm not brother to Zeus and Poseidon.

I'm their sister.

I’ve survived centuries ruling the underworld alone. Now I’m on a mission to find the one soul that has alluded me all these years.

My mate.

When I finally find him, the jokes on me. There's four of them.

Thoughts from Paige

Although this is in a series, it is a series of standalones from various authors. There is a sequel out called Haunts and Hades
