Favorite Contemporary Reverse Harems

Hi friends,

I hope you and yours are safe and well.

I received a request to post about my top ten reverse harems. I assumed it would take a bit to look through my books, but I ultimately thought it would be a quick post.

I was seriously mistaken. I thought I’d narrow it down to the books I owned in print but then realized there were several books I loved that weren’t available in print. So I went ahead and started adding books that I own in any format.  When I hit my 43 book, I realized I needed to reevaluate my definition of ‘favorite.’ I can’t even pick a single favorite color! 

Instead of a single post of my top ten, I will break it into a couple of posts. Is this cheating? Probably, but I think I can get away with it in a genre affectionally known as ‘whychoose.’ 

Be well, and happy reading!
Paige

P.S: These are in alphabetical order, you can’t expect me to actually rank the books now that I’ve managed to pick ten!

April's Fools by Ivy Asher
April's Fools by Ivy Asher
Description from Amazon

My father named me after a gun and taught me how to skin and cook a squirrel by the time I was ten. The only feminine influence I ever had growing up was when Dharla Cornburner told me I needed to get laid.

I was raised feral on a solid diet of crazy, so when three hot ex-military dudes show up on my doorstep, making claims about a plague and the end of the world as I know it, I don’t even bat a lash.

They insist I need to go with them, that they’ll keep poor little ol’ me safe. I’m perfectly fine right where I’m at, but I’ve always been an adventurous girl, and the three of them and their muscles look like an excellent place for a me sandwich.

These boys are strung tight almost to the point of snapping. Which happens to be just how I like ‘em. Looks like the end of the world just got a hell of a lot more fun. Let the games begin.

This is a standalone Reverse Harem Romance.

Paige's Mini Review

Please do NOT read the reviews about this book! This is one of those books that you'll enjoy so much more going in blind. I don't even know what to say in this mini-review. I LOVED this book.  It is on KU.  I don't own it, but if you have KU I highly recommend it.

Paige's Mini Review

I love this series. Each harem member has a fleshed-out backstory, making it easy to know them as individuals. The relationship progression felt natural, and their ability to deal with realistic re-world stigmas is impressive. Highly recommend. There are currently four books released, the fifth is slated for mid-April, and I have already pre-ordered it.

Fourplay: Ever After Duet, Book 1 by: Jayne Rylon
Fourplay: Ever After Duet, Book 1 by: Jayne Rylon
Description from Amazon

It’s normal to drool over three devastatingly handsome, charismatic, and rich AF men, right?

Well, not when they’re your bosses.

Especially not if you find out they like to share their lovers and you can’t stop fantasizing about being at the center of their attention during boring meetings.

And definitely not when you have a former co-worker who didn’t understand the meaning of the word “no” harassing you.

But that’s Kari’s life, and now she needs to decide what to do about it: follow her heart, or forfeit the chance to discover what it’s like to live out her wildest dreams.

Fourplay is book one of the Ever After duet. Kari, Ford, Brady, and Josh’s story will conclude in Fourkeeps.

Paige's Mini Review

Woooosh, this one has a LOT happening in it. Our MC, Kari, is dealing with the trauma of an assault. It is alluded to, and there were some flashbacks. The book begins with her three bosses dealing with the asshole, not spoiling anything. I LOVE this duet and have read/listened to it multiple times. I own the kindle and audio version and have never regretted the purchase.  It doesn't look like it's available on KU, so read the sample.  There is a mystery arc, and dang, it kept me on the edge of my seat.

WARNING: This book has one girl and five bad boy rockstars. She owns them all–heart, body and soul.
Don’t read it unless you like to ugly cry…and also unless you like threesomes, foursomes…and moresomes.

“Can one of these five rockstars fill the hole in my heart? Or will I stay broken forever?”

Young, dumb, and broke.

That’s what started everything. With five dollars in her pocket, and everything she owns stuffed in the back of her car, Lilith Goode’s life is over. Done. Destroyed.

Ten words. One text. That’s what it took to change the whole world.

A crumpled concert ticket. A chance encounter. That’s what it takes to start all over again.

Five rockstars. One girl. Six dark hearts, six withered souls.
But can one broken person really put another back together again?
And is a cross-country tour the place to do it?

Groupie, Book #1 in the Rock-Hard Beautiful Trilogy

It contains rockstars, concerts, young love, deep hurt, broken pasts, group sex, one beautiful girl who falls in love with five guys and five guys who fall in love with one beautiful girl. This is a MMMFMM book with a STRONG focus on the woman (although the men aren’t scared of each other’s bodies) aka a reverse harem novel (one woman, five guys). It has a happy ending, NO cliff-hanger, and is the first book in a trilogy.

Paige's Mini Review

I realized I hadn't re-read this series in a while.  I'm definitely going to be fixing that pronto.  The author warns about ugly crying, and it is not a false warning! SO MANY emotions.  I was not ready for this series to end, and would 100% be on board for a return to it.  The characters are fabulous, each one is fleshed out well. This is another one that I own on audio, guess having an audio option raises the likelihood of making it on my favorites list, haha.

**Edited and revised18/10/21**

They were my entire world, then everything fell apart. I didn’t get to say goodbye, I didn’t get to explain to them that my dad had finally gone off the deep end. Of course, they wouldn’t have understood anyway, we were only eight and I never told them how bad it had gotten. Maybe if I had I wouldn’t be in this fucked up situation.

I wouldn’t of seen and done the things I’ve had to do in order to survive, maybe I would’ve even been able to stay with the boys I loved. Well jokes on me, life’s thrown me yet another freaking curve ball and I’m going back, I’m going home but they’re not boys anymore and although they’ve still got the traits of the boys I once loved, I don’t know them like I used to.

They sure as hell aren’t going to remember me. I had to change a lot in order to protect myself and to survive. I’m so far away from who I used to be, I’d be surprised if they even recognized me, I sure as hell don’t. I’m going to lose them all over again, and I barely survived losing them the first time.

This is a medium burn contemporary reverse harem that will have some m/m.
Warnings: Please be advised that this book contains dark themes, including abuse, violence and cursing. Additionally, sexual themes suitable for mature audiences 18+.
All sex is consensual.

Paige's Mini Review

I devoured the first three books in this series. Suspend for a moment that these are supposed to be high-school kids, and this is a beautiful novel. I could not put it down, and the bonus is a large harem. As I began reading the fourth book, I realized that I needed to start the series over. A LOT happens/is happening. I felt a bit lost. I'm going to start a re-read once the final book comes out. I much prefer to read a series at once.

Quadruple Duty - A Military Reverse Harem Romance by Krista Wolf
Description from Amazon

Needed: Community Girlfriend for (4) Army Ranger Specialists at incredible lakehouse estate. Wife material. Long term only.

The ad was ridiculous. Beyond ridiculous! Yet for Sammara Madsen, bored in life and unlucky in love? The concept made her stomach do a sexy barrel roll.

After a chance encounter with a gorgeous soldier reveals the opportunity of a lifetime, Sammara goes along out of simple curiosity. Yet when she falls in love with the beautiful mansion as well as the three other handsome Rangers who live there? The idea of being shared between them as their girlfriend doesn’t seem so outrageous anymore.

Kyle is the charming, sculpted epitome of the perfect man. Dakota, the beautiful giant – and quintessential country boy. Ryan is the brooding, motorcycle-riding bad boy who shares Sammara’s lonely past, and Briggs is the mysterious mercenary, dark and enigmatic, with wounds only a lover could heal.

Yet satisfying the physical and emotional needs of four strapping, powerful soldiers is not without its share of problems. Sammara is plagued by the woes of her dying business. And the four brothers-in-arms have a puzzling secret all their own… one that could easily put them – and their eager new girlfriend – in mortal danger.

Four Army Rangers… sharing the same woman, mind, body, and soul. The ultimate fantasy becomes heart-pounding reality as Sammara is taken into each of their beds – and hearts – one by one, two on one… and more.

Can Sammara succeed in fulfilling her role to each of her beautiful new boyfriends; that of friend, lover, and so much more? Or will sinister unknown forces crush their budding 5-way relationship before it can even begin?

QUADRUPLE DUTY is a sweltering, stand-alone reverse harem military romance filled with humor, drama, pulse-pounding excitement, and enormous amounts of love. Sweet and sizzling, it’s full of action plus scenes so molten they’re bound to melt your kindle! HEA guaranteed.

Thoughts from Paige

I LOVE this book.  I haven't actually ready the sequel, but this book was delightful.  I adored the harem member that showed up a bit later.  This is one of the very few books where I have a favorite.  This is a cute read.

Description from Amazon

High school was a nightmare. I spent the majority of my time dodging the three bullies who delighted in giving me hell. Austin, Gavin, and Vaughn were so awful that just seeing them could ruin my day. It was a relief when I finally graduated and I knew I wouldn’t have to deal with them ever again.That is until I got talked into going to our ten year reunion. I had fantasies of seeing what karma had done to my high school enemies. I couldn’t wait to see bald spots, beer guts, and delicious failure. But I didn’t get that. Instead, I got their attention – all of their attentions – in a way I didn’t expect. Now I’m caught in and unfamiliar relationship with all three of them and am unsure exactly where it will go.

Paige's Mini Review

I love this series.  It deals with real-world stigmas and I felt like I went on a real journey with the characters.  I do not own these books, but I have re-read them.

Description from Amazon

After Charlotte’s father died, her mother changed. She became cold and distant, and Charlotte slowly withdrew into herself. She spent years feeling lonely and insignificant, and rarely spoke more than a few words to anyone. One night, after a traumatic incident instigated by her mother, Charlotte is arrested and taken to juvie.

A year later, Charlotte’s being released from juvie for the second time. Instead of an awful group home, her social worker brings a welcome surprise: Charlotte’s long-forgotten uncle, Arthur, who is all too eager to help her after everything she’s been through. When Charlotte learns that Arthur has a step-son her age, she’s even more apprehensive. How could he not resent having a stranger thrust into his home and family?

To her surprise and relief, Sebastian is kind and friendly. He and his four best friends—Grayson, Remy, Liam, and Elliot—make Charlotte feel welcome. They never make Charlotte feel badly about her past or her anxiety. They make her feel seen. As she gets to know the boys, she realizes they each have their own issues and demons they’re fighting, and she forms a unique bond with their group.

It doesn’t help that they’re ridiculously attractive. How could Charlotte not fall in love with all five of them?

Paige's Mini Review

Super cute series.  The only downside is that there is no information on when book three will be coming out! argh! Definitely recommend these. The series is brought up a lot by other readers on this site too, which is how I found it.  The parental figures that are there are so sweet, and her uncle is chef's kiss. Not in a creepy way! He's so sweet to his stepson and niece, and I LOVED the awkward moments where he has 'the talk'.  Wonderful book.

Triple-Duty Bodyguards : A Military Reverse Harem Romance by: Lily Gold
Triple-Duty Bodyguards : A Military Reverse Harem Romance by: Lily Gold
Description from Amazon

One celebrity diva in trouble. Three overprotective bodyguards determined to keep her safe.

As one of the world’s most hated celebrities, I’m used to unwanted attention. But when I wake up one morning to find a mysterious man has broken into my house, I know I need security, fast. Enter “The Angels”, my three ex-military bodyguards:

Glen, the Scottish sweetheart with the scarred face and gentle hands.
Kenta, the long-haired soldier with the tattooed skin and secretive smile.
And Matt, the blue-eyed, bad-tempered leader haunted by his military past.

Having three gorgeous men guarding me 24-7 sounds like a dream come true, but it turns out to be a nightmare. They’re always here, watching me. Caring for me. Protecting me. They tell me to ignore them and go about my business, but I can’t even think with them so close. The spark is too intense.

On top of that, we don’t get on. They think I’m a demanding diva. I think they’re overdramatic. When a trip to America sends the guys’ protective instincts into overdrive, the sizzling tension between us finally breaks, and I learn my bodyguards’ heart-pounding secret: they want me.

All three of them.

Meanwhile, my stalker’s behaviour is becoming more and more alarming. He’s photographing me through windows and following me in the shadows. With the premiere for my next movie coming up, will my three bodyguards be able to keep me safe from his clutches? Or will my terrifying pursuer finally get his deadly way?

Triple-Duty Bodyguards is a full-length military romance featuring multiple love interests, nail-biting suspense, and smoldering romance. No cheating, and an ultra-sweet HEA guaranteed!

Paige's Mini Review

I have loved every Lily Gold novel so far, and it was tough for me to limit myself to just one. Her characters have so much depth, and I felt all the emotions while reading her books. I went with Triple-Duty Bodygaruds because it was the first one of her books I read. If you haven't given her a try, I highly recommend any of her books. Just be prepared for all the feelings; I always have a tissue ready. Seriously, some of these books hit hard.

*Please note this is the first book in a completed trilogy*

As an English major and the editor of the Literary Magazine at Denberg University, I’m fully focused on school. Struggling with being the utter disappointment of my parents–who happen to be two amazing academics–I’m doing my best to prove myself. Stranded on campus with nowhere to go this holiday season, I’m determined to stay on task.

But then, Maven Stone calls my name, and everything changes…

Suddenly, I’m on a whirlwind vacation with Maven and his two fraternity brothers, Chance Montgomery and Banyan Iburgess, chasing dreams I never knew I had.

I’m Giovanna Amsel, and this is the first part of our unconventional love story.

Paige's Mini Review

Well, no surprise here. This is another one I ended up just buying. I totally fell in love with each character. We get to go on a journey with them, from young college students to young adults navigating the 'real' world. There are overarching themes and events, and I cannot gush enough about this book. I have listened to this trilogy multiple times on audio.
