Sweet Summer Child – Reverse Harems

Hello, my friends!

The weekend is almost upon us. I hope you all have something to look forward to, maybe even one of the below books!

The request for this post is to focus on a naive MC. Hopefully, I did this some justice; I tried to include a variety of naivety.

Be well, and happy reading.

I’m perfectly normal… or at least I was.Until my twenty-first birthday.Until a power I had no idea existed inside of me unlocked.Until I became the magical community’s most coveted prize.Now instead of running my magic shop, I’m fulfilling my life’s purpose while trying not to get captured. If it wasn’t for my self-appointed guardians, I wouldn’t have even made it this far.They may not have asked for this either, but the whole town’s afraid of Knox, Hiro’s suspicious of everything (including me), Crew’s power is as legendary as mine, and Ever is our leader… who’s keeping a secret of his own.With the four of them by my side, I might just stand a chance of getting out of this alive. See, Soul Magic has been dead for centuries. It shouldn’t exist anymore, long forgotten like a fairy tale warped and twisted in time.Except it does exist—in me.My name is Willa Toussaint and I’m the last Soul Mage alive. Whether I’m ready or not, my enemies are coming to steal my birthright, black spellwork thickens the air, and I’ve never been more terrified.

Fire's Daughter: A Reverse Harem Urban Fantasy (Arcane Rebels Book 1) by India Arden
Fire’s Daughter: A Reverse Harem Urban Fantasy (Arcane Rebels Book 1) by India Arden
Amazon Description

Confronting a gang of dangerous rebels is one thing. Falling for them is another.

You can’t turn on the news nowadays without getting bombarded by stories about the Rebels. They look so scary on TV—blowing things up, knocking things down, terrorizing the declining city of Corona, and making sure even the rubble doesn’t go unscathed.

My father is the reigning Arcane Master of Fire. Since he’s a prominent figure in both politics and magic, it only makes sense that my family is a target.

Still, I never expected to encounter a Rebel leader in person. I never imagined I’d be drawn to him, either.
And I most definitely never dreamed I could lose my heart to them all.

The Rebels
Ember: the leader
Sterling: the healer
Zephyr: the thinker
Rain: the dreamer

And Aurora is the heart of the group, pitted against her own family in this page-turning series.

Urban Fantasy fans will adore this medium-burn Reverse Harem filled with action, intrigue and magic. If you like RH with adult heroines, spellbinding action and immersive worldbuilding, pick up the first book in the five-volume Arcane Rebels series today.

Thoughts from Paige

I devoured the first three books in this series.  It doesn't appear on KU, but it is available on Hoopla.  I ended up listening and reading.  I liked the first book enough to buy the first three.  I cannot wait for book four. Hopefully, it comes out soon! 

Forged from the Ashes (Wings of War Book 1) by J. Kearston
Amazon Description

It takes more than blood to be a dragon.You have to fight for everything you want in this world, then fight to keep it because there will always be someone that tries to take it away from you. In a world of nothing but predators, the only way to the top is to claw your way there.You have to be the monster other monsters fear.Ezra’s spent her life in hiding, but that all comes crashing down when three men fleeing for their lives bring the very trouble her family has protected her from to her door. Fight or flight, it all comes down to one very important question.Why settle for something as mundane as simply existing when you have the potential to be so much more?Contains:*Overprotective brothers *brutal fun and games*Men that adore her*Multi POV*HFN standaloneThis is a humorous, dragon shifter romance where the heroine gets all of her men. While the book contains copious amounts of humor, it does allude to a few situations that people may find triggering, so please read the note in the beginning of the book if you are concerned before reading. Both books in this universe are HFN standalones that can be read independently, though to appreciate cameos, I'd start with Forged from the Ashes. This means that I will wrap things up with our main characters' story, but leave a little opening into bigger world problems that affect the characters in another book as it's more romance focused and it's just not their job to save the world.

Amazon Description

One clueless queen-to-be, four princes to change her world forever. Before her vital first cup of coffee in the morning, Litha finds out she’s a witch and is suddenly transported to a magical world she didn’t know existed. As if that wasn’t strange enough, it turns out that she’s prophesied to be queen and her parents only took her to the human world to protect her from those who want her dead. But now she’s at Lughnasadh Elite Academy and face to face with her four potential… kings? It doesn’t help that all four princes are sexy and hot and make her insides squirm when she catches sight of them. There is Bane, the werewolf prince, all broody and with hair sticking up like he just got out of bed. Kit, the incubus prince, whose wicked smile melts anyone’s unmentionables. Rune, the dragon prince, protective and with muscles like he’s a moving mountain. And last, but definitely not least, Finn, the fae prince, quiet but intense, with eyes like a summer forest. According to the prophecy, Litha will marry the true ruler of the four kingdoms. But having grown up human, in the human world, she has no idea where to start making sense of all of it, and the four princes pursuing her really don’t help with trying to figure it all out. This is the first novella of the Lughnasadh Elite Academy serial, a reverse harem #WhyChoose story. This novella may include any of these elements: steamy scenes, ‘I need tissues NOW’ moments, cries of ‘why, oh, why’ and cliffhangers that make you bite your nails (and curse the author). This story includes MF, MM and also FF scenes, but everyone is primarily focused on Litha and there are no sexy scenes between the guys and the other girl.

Silenced (Santa Catalina University Book 1) by Crystal North
Silenced (Santa Catalina University Book 1) by Crystal North
Amazon Description

I’m not crazy.

My parents had me tested.

And much to their disappointment, my diagnosis set me free from under their oppressive thumb.

Travelling across the world to attend Santa Catalina University with my best – only – friend brings me freedom and happiness…To a point.

What I don’t expect is a mountain of a man to bring silence and calm to my otherwise chaotic brain. Or the love-hate attraction with him and his two best friends. I certainly don’t expect one of my professors to become obsessed with me.

I find myself wrapped up in a dangerous mystery, when girls on campus are dying and my life is in danger because I’m – apparently – not who I thought I was.

Suddenly, I have to rely on these four strangers for protection and answers.

I came to SCU to find my voice, but instead I find myself silenced.
Possibly, for good.

Silenced is a reverse harem romance, meaning our FMC will have more than one love interest and won’t have to choose between them at the end of the series. This book is a slow burn, paranormal romance which ends in a cliffhanger. It features some mild bullying scenes. Silenced begins a new series by the author but also forms book 1 of the SCU collections. Meaning the collection consists of 10 independent stories by different authors all set within the university and shared world. Silenced ends on a cliff-hanger and starts a new series. We will return to Malia’s story next year.

Soothing Nightmares (I.S.S. Book 1) by M. Sinclair
Soothing Nightmares (I.S.S. Book 1) by M. Sinclair
Amazon Description

I didn’t fear my nightmares. I loved them... and they loved me.

I had never been afraid of the dark. Abandoned on the front step of ISS, I’d spent my entire life thriving in the realm of darkness that most humans avoided. I was a woman living among monsters.

Arabella was abandoned at the front steps of INSTITUTUM SEQUUNTUR SOMNIA (ISS) one stormy night, only to be found and brought in by the monsters that lived there. An institute of nightmares that housed the most dangerous creatures that walked the plane of humanity. A place that trained and harnessed those abilities for their own use, while defending against the humans that were constantly attacking them. But what happens when a young human woman grows up among the nightmares? Feeling no fear but instead taking comfort in her team that she surrounded herself by? By all regards, Arabella shouldn’t have fit in at the institute. Nothing like the warrior-like creatures around her, the 5’1’’ young woman with pink hair and a vision impairment was absolutely fundamental to her team. Not just for her strategic brilliance but her soothing lack of fear that seemed to tame the nightmares around her. Arabella is bound and determined to keep her monstrous men safe while they are on their missions. What happens when their most recent mission attracts the wrong type of attention? What happens when ISS comes under attack and everything that she values is destroyed?

Join Arabella and her possessive nightmares as one human woman finds the monster within herself to protect those that she loves. The ISS series is promised to feature terrifying monsters that include everything from the literal monster under the bed to Lucifer’s overbearing son, the prince of Hell.

If you love large harems, brilliant, sassy, but slightly naive female main characters with no fear, and a thrilling adventure filled with steam, vengeance, and a happily ever after, then you are absolutely going to love this.

Warning: This medium-fast burn RH contains several dark themes from swearing, violence, and sexual themes suitable for +18.

Summer Heat (Dirty Summer Book 1) by Melissa  Adams
Summer Heat (Dirty Summer Book 1) by Melissa Adams
Amazon Description

“A dirty summer fling with a boy from the wrong side of the tracks.” This is my sister’s recipe to avoid boredom as we spend the summer at Daddy’s newly purchased resort. I’m not looking forward to spending time with her and our snobby, demanding mother, but hey, at least the view is nice. Nice and hot. Like the staff. There’s Matt, the gorgeous chauffeur. Drew, the sexy chef. And Brady, the smoking hot surfing instructor. Boring goes out the window when I catch their attention and maybe they could give me the dirty summer my sister was talking about, a summer like I’ve never dared to dream of before. Too bad that the guys have big dreams for their future and that means keeping their heads down, winning the biggest surfing competition Coral Cove has ever seen and most of all, keeping their jobs at Daddy’s resort. And to do that, they know that they can show the guests a good time on the dance floor and in the water, even flirt a little, but it has to end there. The guests are off limits and as the boss’s daughter I’m even more out of their reach. But nothing goes as planned, lines get blurred, and the summer nights heat up. When we can’t stay away from each other and I make it my mission to help them make their dream come true, will we end the summer with a victory or will we lose it all? Attention: this is a story where the heroine won’t have to choose between her different love interests. This story is part of a duet and ends in a cliffhanger.
