The More the Merrier – Large Harems

Friends!

Today’s request was larger harems, and I’ve got to say I’m quite partial to them. I’ve read and enjoyed quite a few of the below. I do try to include a variety of books on these lists since we aren’t all the same and like different things; so crazy, right? Hopefully you will find something on this list that strikes your fancy.

Be well, and happy reading!

Broken Bonds (The Bonds that Tie Book 1) by J Bree
Broken Bonds (The Bonds that Tie Book 1) by J Bree
Amazon Description

After the death of my mother and her Bonded, I was relieved to find my own Bonds. I was sure everything would be okay if I had them. It wasn’t. The fate of our people is in my hands and I know we’re better off if I’m alone. After five years on the run, I’m caught and dragged back to face the men I ran away from. I thought I was doing the right thing. Now, I’m not so sure. North, Nox, Gryphon, Atlas, and Gabe may never forgive me but one thing is for sure. I won’t ever forgive myself.

Dead Wolf Walking: Bad Moon Academy by Rory Miles
Dead Wolf Walking: Bad Moon Academy by Rory Miles
Amazon Description

One bite changed my life.

I was living life to the fullest when a wolf attacked.

Now I’ve been ripped from my home and shipped off to Bad Moon Academy, a place for changed wolves. Or so I’m told.

There’s something sinister lurking within the confines of the academy, and I’m starting to think I was brought here as a sacrifice.

This is a dark academy reverse harem with dangerously possessive shifters.

Thoughts from Paige

I couldn't make it through the sample. I was trying to read it while waiting for the kiddo to sleep, and the writing was so good I started to feel anxious in this dark room all alone, save the kid. Gave me chills. I will 100% be reading this book, but I'll be starting it when it is daylight. Apparently, I'm a scardey cat right now.

Dragged Under: A Reverse Harem Omegaverse Romance (Seven Book 1) by D.E.  Chapman
Dragged Under: A Reverse Harem Omegaverse Romance (Seven Book 1) by D.E. Chapman
Amazon Description

Send help… I’m going to need it.

I was normal… until I wasn’t. Dying does that to people, I guess.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. My name is Gabrielle, and I’m an omega. My life took an unexpected turn the moment I was dragged into an alley and murdered. When I woke up, I fully embodied lust and jumped three sexy-as-sin strangers—who just so happened to be Hell’s strongest demons.

Now the four of us are bonded for life. And as it turns out, this group of three is actually a group of six. Oh and there’s this huge plot to overthrow the current leader of Hell, and somehow I’ve found myself smack dab in the middle of it.

If I thought my life before was a challenge, it’s got nothing on this shit.

Dragged Under is a somewhat dark PNR omegaverse featuring one saucy omega and six demanding alphas.

Thoughts from Paige

This has been on my TBR pile, even though it comes with a glossary upfront. If you've frequented this blog, you'll know it's one of my biggest pet peeves. I don't know why shrug. Moving right along...this is also an omegaverse. I know several of you are looking for more of those; this could be a two-for-one situation. 

Total aside, I LOVE the authors disclaimer/preface whatever at the beginning of the book.  Made me chuckle.

Amazon Description

Senior year was supposed to be normal, like all the others. Instead I met them, five guys who became the center of my universe. Our friendship grew but so did my feelings. What should I do when I could never choose?
She’s our fated mate but she doesn’t even know about supernaturals. We know she’s something, but we aren’t sure what. We have to gain her trust before we can reveal everything.

This is a reverse harem novel meaning she doesn’t have to choose and book one in the series.

Thoughts from Paige

I started this series a couple of days ago and am currently on book two. There are twins in this harem, and someone has a piecing in a particular place (wink wink). These books seem like short, easy reads. I'm enjoying them.

When you're Queen of the Demons and your man understands your need to have more than one, so what do you do? Collect another 7!
A Queen. Her mates. A father to rescue. A brother who betrays.
Hell just got a new ruler and it's going to be a wild ride.

Being Queen of the Demons is an easy gig. Rule, discipline, a maim here and there, and most importantly, have fun while I'm doing it.

Until this suddenly doesn't fulfil me anymore. I'm searching for more. Something meaningful. The Devil isn't supposed to feel, and yet...
I don't expect it to come in the form of several mates, each one satisfying a different part of me and accepting that I need more than one.

As I search for a way to save my father from the fate that put me in power, I'm blindsided by my twin's betrayal and the feelings that consume me.

Can I rescue my father, save my kingdom from the strange goings-on, all the while being everything I need to be to keep my mates happy?

It looks like this has both MM and FF. It's a complete series and made it on the best sellers list, and I am hoping to get to it as it's been on my TBR for a fair bit now.

Home (Finding My Home Book 1) by Nikita Parmenter
Home (Finding My Home Book 1) by Nikita Parmenter
Amazon Description

**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.

Thoughts from Paige

This is one of my favorite series. The author just released a spin-off that I'm duper excited to read. I did have to pretend the kids weren't in HS, but once I suspended that belief, it was easier to enjoy the drama and excitement. I really love this series.

Omega : The White Wolf Book One by A.B. Marie
Omega : The White Wolf Book One by A.B. Marie
Amazon Description

My name is Addy Scott, and I'm a female omega. If that wasn't bizarre enough, I'm also the first female White Wolf... ever. We live in a secluded pack in northern Alaska called the Freedom Pack, and we house every shifter and other paranormals.

Against the council's orders.

Basically, we're abominations that should be dealt with... And... Well.. That's why we have mages on our side to hide us...

At least that's what we thought. So much is going wrong, and what's worse? I'm about to turn twenty-five and be mate marked. Will my mate even be able to find me, if he's not already here?

Everyone has opinions of who my mate will be... The problem is... I have feelings for several males... and it's tearing me apart. Not that I let it show.

Our issues become much worse on the night of my birthday, and I'm not sure even the Goddess who has 'blessed' me will be able to save me now.

Omega, a 77k word novel, is the first book in the White Wolf series. This is a reverse harem, meaning the main character has more than three love interests and doesn't have to choose. Why choose, anyway?

This book is intended for readers over the age of 18. There may be triggers for sensitive readers, including, strong language, mature adult content, and situations.

Also included in the series: steamy scenes, hot men, m/m, and adventures.

Enjoy!

Thoughts from Paige

This series has been appearing on the best sellers list for quite a long time. I've tracked at least nine weeks that the first book, in particular, has been listed. I did give it a go, but it felt more like a YA to me, which wasn't what I was expecting, so it threw me off, and I haven't finished it. Regardless, it has high ratings on Amazon, and people seem to love it, so maybe it'll be your cup of tea!

Thoughts from Paige

I don't want to steer you all wrong, so be warned that this series is NOT complete, and the last update was in 2019. The author's website indicates that a series will never be left incomplete, but as of now, it stops at book 4 in a 7-book series. I did like the first book but didn't read further.

Queen of Beasts by Amber Withers

Fourteen Demons. One Human. No hope.

Amelia has a secret, but when she stumbles into a household of fourteen young male demons, will her secret remain hidden for long?

Will a fear of what he is, keep her from accepting who he is?

Thoughts from Paige

I LOVED this book! I went on a journey of epic proportions (yes, I'm exaggerating) when I couldn't remember its name. Luckily, one from our community knew it, so I immediately bought the paperback to prevent this from happening again.

The author is lovely, I reached out to her, and she was so friendly. She indicated the second book should be up for pre-order soon. Yippie! I'm totally assuming this will be a large harem, but I could be off base. I guess we'll find out in book two.

Survival Knightwood Academy by Rowen Black
Amazon Description

Each year, the Knightwood Academy chooses the best of the best to join them.

Males from different factions are sent there to train.

This year, it’s my brother's turn to take part, but sickness eats at his body every day, making it impossible for him to take part in the training.

I have no choice but to take his place, not only to save him from dying during training but also because I need the money for his medicine. It’s my job as his sister to do this for him.

I’m not worried. I know I can do this. I’m as fast and deadly as any man. My father made sure both my brother and I are very capable with a sword.

At the Academy, I have to share a room with the four men who will now be my unit. We have been ordered to grow close by sharing every moment of every day with each other.

My new unit mates don't believe I will be able to keep them alive in the coming trials, because of my size, but I would prove them wrong no matter what it takes.

If they find out who I really am, I’ll be sentenced to death, and if no one can pay for my brother's medicine, he’ll share in my fate.

Will I be able to keep my identity a secret to save my brother’s life?

I’m not sure, but I have to try.

It’s my only option.

Warning: Knightwood Academy is set in its own Dystopian world.

Slow-burn and dark Reverse Harem novel. Triggering elements appear in the story.

Thoughts from Paige

I enjoyed this book a lot.  A LOT happened in this book, and I was super excited for book 2. However, I did set book two aside for now because it's building up to what I think will be a pretty traumatizing scene, and I'm just not quite ready to bear it yet. But I WILL keep reading this series; I'm enjoying it.
