Paige's Quick Review

I got sucked into this series and completely ignored life for a good two days. I finally forced myself to take a break after book 5. This series is a fantastic science fiction RH. Although the relationship is essential, it is not the story's central theme. Her adventures are, just like in a typical science fiction book with romance.

Description from Amazon

One, two, things are changing for you. Three, four, monsters at your door. Five, six, no one could predict. Seven, eight, you learn they’re your mates. Nine, 10, it’s time to fight again.

Paige Alice has changed, but she’s not sure if that’s a good or bad thing.

The good. Four annoying and different types of men, who she trusts with her life. A scary but faithful sidekick, and of course, her crazy family.

The bad…Everything else.

Contains mature themes.

Paige's Quick Review

I've re-listened to this trilogy quite a few times. It's even better on the re-read. You are dropped right into the action. I was super confused at first, thinking I had somehow missed a chapter.  Nope, we are just thrust right into this crazy world.  I LOVE it. So much.

***THIS IS A COMPLETE SERIES***

Um. Um. Um.
Are you reading this?
If you are, I need your help.

I was at a party; I was running; I fell.
And get this—this is the part you’ll never believe—I fell down a rabbit hole.
Like Alice in those old books.

Except in those books, there wasn’t blood everywhere.
In those books, the characters weren’t all male, attractive, and interested in me.
Forget everything you know about the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit, the March Hare …

This isn’t Wonderland; this is Underland.
Violence, romance, hallucinogenic tea, and magic … that’s all there is in this place.
There’s me, Allison, and there are the men that want me, the enemies that hunt me, and the darkness that’s quickly rolling in.

And only I can stop it.
So if you’re reading this, will you help me?
Please. I just want to escape this place and go … home.

ALLISON’S ADVENTURES IN UNDERLAND (Book 1 of 3 in the “Harem of Hearts” series) — is a full-length, gritty, romance retelling of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. Don’t expect a children’s tale; these characters are nothing like their more innocent counterparts. This book contains love found in the darkest shadows.

Paige's Quick Review

I adore this series, and the audio version is fantastic! Although the story is from our MC's POV, the audiobook version has a male voice actor for when the men are speaking.  I really enjoyed it.  I've recently been introduced to graphic audios, via The Innkeeper Series (not RH) and I think this series would be AMAZING as graphic audio.  But I digress.

The author is releasing a follow-up series titled Kings of Underland. I am so excited!

Chaotic (Arcane Mage Series Book 1) by: T.S. Snow
Description from Amazon

Battle mage or magical engineer? Easy choice, right? Engineer, obviously.

I’m Charisma Carter, tech genius and nerd extraordinaire. I actually used to be Charisma Silverstorm, member of one of the six elite Arcane Families, until my family shunned me when I turned 18 because my magic wasn’t strong enough. However, where I lack in magic I more than make up for with the tech I develop, if I do say so myself. Apparently I’m not the only one.

From the minute I received my diploma as a magical engineer, it seems like my world has turned upside down. Now, members of all six families are competing to get me to work for them. They’re willing to use anything…from bribes to charm. It’s not enough that the heirs to Arcane are walking sex gods, they also have a lot of money and exceptional magical skills.

As our paths intertwine, I have to try to stay true to who I am, who I’ve always been, and not succumb to their charms. But how can a girl resist when the future she always dreamed of is right at her fingertips?

This book is a reverse-harem romance intended for adult audiences.

Paige's Quick Review

I LOVE this series. The MC is brilliant, clumsy, totally an introvert, and so dang awesome. I love the rhythm each book has and feel so immersed in the world every time I pick up a book.  There is magic in this world, but it is a melding of science and magic that enables the characters to reach their full potential.  I love that our MC is an engineer, and she brilliantly utilizes science, creating a highly respectable career.

Escaping Monsters by: Rita Stradling & Alexa B Jame
Description from Amazon

First comes love…
Then comes marriage…
…and then comes my con-artist husband selling me to werewolves on our honeymoon.

On the run from my cruel captors, I stumble into Grayhaven. This secret supernatural settlement is packed with biker demons, fae royals, and witches dealing in death-magic. Their small town could be my salvation… or doom.

But when the Grayhaven werewolf pack tracks me down, I feel the noose of impending capture tightening around my throat. I’m an omega, the least dominant werewolf in the supernatural world. If I’m given an order—any order—I’m powerless to refuse.

The five dominant werewolves could enslave me with a word. Instead, they take me in, protect me, and call me their mate. I want to believe that they are mine… that I’m safe.

Yet, there is a malevolent darkness hunting me and it won’t stop until it’s claimed me once more, body and soul.

If you love sexy-as-hell alpha werewolves, feisty heroines, fated mates, and dominant shifters who would do anything to protect their mate, get ready to devour this medium/fast burn reverse harem romance!

Escaping Monsters is the first book in this steamy new Why Choose werewolf series by Alexa B James and Rita Stradling. This book is for 18 and over only please.

Paige's Quick Review

I LOVE this series. The third book (Hunting Monsters) looks to have been delayed.  However, I still love and recommend this series.  I love our MC, she has gone through a hell of a lot. But she persevered! Definitely worth a read.

Description from Amazon

Bullshit is spelled ‘You’re a werewolf’.

First, my parents tell me I’m going to be “checking into the Red Roof Inn” every month, and now, they tell me I’m a werewolf?!

Add to that I need to pick a mate and enter into some wolfy marriage—NOPE.

Not.

Going.

To.

Happen.

They can’t make me.

Everyone thinks this is just a phase but nineteen is the new two—and I’m going to show them how terrible I can be.

Buckle up, bitches, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

JUST A PHASE is book one in Not Another Teen Wolf series.

Paige's Quick Review

The ratings for this book are all over the place. If you don't have KU, definitely read the sample before buying.  I happened to enjoy this book because it made me laugh a lot.  I ended up purchasing the actual book, and have the second on pre-order.

Klutz: Phoenix Down (But Did You Die? Book 1) by Sedona Ashe
Klutz: Phoenix Down (But Did You Die? Book 1) by Sedona Ashe
Description from Amazon

After I rescued these jerks from a plane crash, you’d think they’d be nicer to me.

I die, like all the time. My track record of hilarious, freak accidental deaths would be impressive if it weren’t so embarrassing.

And when I come back, I’m naked. Every. Dang. Time.

After my plane was sabotaged and crashed into the jungle, I rescued five male survivors from the wreckage.

I could have let them die, but no, I decided to pull their stupid carcasses from the wreckage. I’m immortal, not a monster.

Yes, they’re hot, now is not the time to do something about that.

The five sexy jaguar shifters are on a mission to locate someone, a rare phoenix shifter. Phoenix, the legendary creature, reborn every time it dies. Wait…

…Could they be looking for me?

It doesn’t matter since they walked away and left me to die in the Amazon rainforest. A place full of interesting new ways for a klutz like me to die. Surviving the jungle is harsh, but it’s nothing compared to how they have treated me.

And the worst part?

It turns out these bullies are my fated mates. Yep, I must be cursed.

I can’t wait to escape the jungle and leave these guys behind, but another part of me is begging to love them…

Was the Amazon always this hot?

“But Did You Die?” is a comedy filled, bully (only in book one), paranormal romance series that includes jaguar shifters, a mysterious underground society, fated mates, and an incredibly clumsy Phoenix. Follow Amaryllis as she discovers who she is and ‘collects’ her soulmates along the way! It is full of humor, adventure, and scenes to entice and thrill you… or to make you unexpectedly snort with laughter. The series will have a HEA…it will just take a little while to get there!

Paige's Quick Review

I love this series, but the first book was difficult for me to get through. Her men are grade-A assholes. I don't want to spoil anything, but just know that our MC isn't the type to roll over, and her willingness to forgive reflects what I consider a reasonable timeline, aka not right away.

Magic Swap: A Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance (Hidden World Academy Book 1) by: Sadie Moss
Description from Amazon

Mistaken identities, a human in a magical world, and three sexy warlocks. Sounds like the start of a joke, but nope…

It’s my life.

After one too many kamikazes on my twenty-first birthday, I’ve made a few interesting discoveries.

First of all… magic is real.
Secondly… there’s a whole supernatural dimension that exists parallel to ours.
Thirdly… I’ve somehow gotten stuck in that dimension.

There are about a billion things wrong with this picture, including the fact that I don’t actually have any magic. Everyone here thinks I do though. They also think I’m a witch named Roxie, the star student at Radcliffe Magical Academy.

Ummm. Nope. Not me. Sorry.

I don’t know where the hell the real Roxie is, or how I’m supposed to get back home, but I’m determined to find out.

Unfortunately, I keep getting distracted by three hot-as-hell warlocks I can’t seem to avoid. Cross, a snarky bad boy who pushes all my buttons, Theo, an incorrigible flirt with a devastating accent, and Kasian, a teacher’s assistant who’s totally off limits.

Even though I’m drawn to all three of them, I’m not sure I should trust them.

Because if anybody finds out I don’t belong here…

I’m screwed.

Magic Swap is the first book in the Hidden World Academy series, a fast-burn reverse harem story about a sassy human who’s out of her depth and the three men who fall in love with her.

Paige's Quick Review

Alternative dimensions? Yes, please! I really love how the author used the theory of an alternative dimension where your 'twin' self resides. It was super interesting thinking about how things could be similar or different based upon your family in each of the worlds.  Could it be possible that there are more dimensions our characters aren't aware of? I feel like this universe has so much potential for future stories. Fantastic series.

Sanctuary: Seeking Asylum Book 1 (Seeking Asylum Series) by: SM Olivier
Description from Amazon

I was once an average college student with dreams of the Olympics. A better future had been within my grasp. I was weeks away from graduating from college, and I had just received my invitation to the National Team. Sure, I was still nursing a broken heart and coming to terms with the betrayal delivered to me at the hands of people I once trusted and loved dearly. However, things were finally looking up.
Or so I thought. The news began to report disturbing stories about a new virus. This virus was turning people. The infected became violent and attacking anybody and everybody.
My plans for a relaxing weekend with my friends and family turned into a nightmare. We were told to evacuate to Sanctuary. On our journey to safety, I run into old friends and find myself becoming attracted to them and their friends. I realized that even in the most harrowing of times, I could find solace and affection.
This may be a whole new world and life wasn’t going to return to normal anytime soon, if ever, but at least I had five men at my side to face it with.

*** Sanctuary is a contemporary, post-apocalyptic reverse harem, why choose series. This book contains some triggering content that may be sensitive to some readers. ***

Paige's Quick Review

I am a super fan of this series. I would love to have a place like their camp during a zombie apocalypse. I adore this writing style, and I feel fully enmeshed in the series while reading it. I am a huge science fiction fan, so the more detail about what is going on, including maps and people, makes me that much more engaged. I cannot recommend this series enough.

The third book was recently released, but it isn't appearing on the series page for some reason. I'm adding a link to the third book here, but don't read the description if you haven't read the first two!

Sanctuary: Beyond Haven Book 3

The Shadow Student (Wraithwood Academy Book 1) by Teresa Hann
Description from Amazon

I’m not who you think I am.
My enemies aren’t who you think they are.
Welcome to Wraithwood Academy.

My father is dead. And my mother’s enemies smell opportunity. To save us both, I’ll have to navigate the troubled waters of Wraithwood Academy, seeking allies and outsmarting enemies among the heirs to the country’s most powerful mage families.

The vicious, gorgeous Nightfeld brothers think they know me. Cly Redbriar, the weak daughter of a powerful father. A spoiled, scared little girl hiding behind her bodyguard. Nothing but a new plaything for the kings of Wraithwood.

They know nothing.

Because I’ve been forced to live a twisted lie.

See, I’m not really Cly Redbriar…

Note: This is a dark university age academy reverse harem novel with magic, mayhem, secret identities, slow burn romance, and a kick-ass heroine on a mission.

No cliffhanger guarantee! While this book is part of a larger tale, it tells a complete story with a beginning, middle, and end.

Paige's Quick Review

I cannot remember what happens in each specific book, so I'm not going to say much here.  There is research, there is science, and there are scientific theories.  I adore this series. On top of all that, our MC is a badass, and she takes every opportunity to keep herself and her loved ones safe.
