Audio Blitz – Contemporary Reverse Harem

Hello!

As you may, or may not, be aware, I am focusing on audiobooks this week! Since I’m not answering any specific posts, I’m doing one each day.  Hopefully you all find something new!

The rest of this post is a copy paste of the previous posts in this set, so skip ahead to the good stuff!

To recap, our audio posts so far have been:
Paranormal
Omegaverse
Dark

Please remember to check your library; audiobooks are often available to borrow! Also, if you have an audible subscription, please double-check if you own a kindle version of the book. Amazon will give you a discount on the audible version if you also have the kindle version. If you have Kindle Unlimited, you can get the audible discount by having the book ‘checked out’. The discount is often about half the price of a monthly Audible credit, so just make sure you shop smart and save those full audible credits for when you can’t get an easy discount.

I have an audible account and recommend it if you plan on doing a lot of audiobook listening. However, if you mostly listen to books available on Kindle Unlimited, it may not be worth it financially; cheaper to just buy the discounted audiobook ad-hoc.

Be well, and happy listening!

A Piece of Heaven: YA Contemporary Romance (The Allendale Four Book 1) by Angel Lawson
Amazon Description

No good deed goes unpunished.

I learned that lesson the hard way when I agreed to help my friend Justin with a favor.

My platonic friend Justin.

A favor that helped him with his reputation but turned mine into the trending topic at my school. In a matter of days, I go from quiet, nobody to school slut. 

The problem with that? I’m still a virgin.

The whispers, the stares, and the constant gossip try to bring me down-they almost do bring me down but I’m tired of hiding in the dark, covering up my anxiety, and being alone. I decide to take on the bullies and find a few surprising allies along the way; the Allendale Four.

Oliver, Anderson, Jackson, and Hayden make up this tight-knit circle of friends and for some reason, they make it their mission to protect my reputation, my heart, and my soul.

That doesn't stop the haters from coming after me. For the rumors and harassment to end. 

More than anything, I want the pain to stop.

A Piece of Heaven is book one in contemporary young-adult, reverse harem series that deals first love, bullying, social issues and self-harm. Follow Heaven and the boys she loves from high school, college and beyond in this four book series:

Four: A Dark Reverse Harem Romance by Sara Cate & Rachel Leigh
Four: A Dark Reverse Harem Romance by Sara Cate & Rachel Leigh
Amazon Description

They say family is a circle of strength.
But when mine is ripped away from me at the hands of a monster,
My strength is all that’s left.
I’ll give my last breath before they take anything else from me.
Even if I’m the one they wanted all along.
Find Silas Black.
Those were my father’s last words.
So I did.
Only, I found so much more than just a man who was prepared to help me get my revenge.
I found a tortured soul who in return gave me hope.
But I also found his broken sons.
One hates me.
One desires me.
And Silas wants to save me.
They say revenge is a dish best served cold, but If I keep getting caught up in the heat of the moment, I’ll be my own demise.

Four is a Dark Reverse Harem Romance that contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find uncomfortable, such as dub con, murder, torture, and abuse. The Black family men are rough, controlling, and a little bit crazy, but don’t worry...she puts them in their place. Enjoy!

Thoughts from Paige

I include this because the author mentions that she writes books with lots of angst. From the book description, it sounds like there will be a fair bit of angst in this book.

Amazon Description

Nerdy coder girl? Check.
Massive debt? Double-check.
New job working for three Silicon Valley billionaires at a crypto-currency startup?
Ugh. Triple-check.

Jude Cauthon is nerdy and sweet and awkward in all the right ways. As the Chief Technical Officer of the company, he spends long hours showing me the ropes at the company, with plenty of late nights with just the two of us huddled around his computer screen. And after one especially productive evening at the office? We can’t stop thinking about each other.

Owen March, on the other hand? He’s the cocky know-it-all CEO who struts around like he's the second coming of Jesus. Sure, he's young and smoking hot and has enough confidence to lead an army into battle. And yeah, his smoldering emerald gaze sends shivers up my spine every time he glances in my direction. But soon his teases and taunts take on a playful edge, and I begin looking forward to the hacker pranks we've been pulling on each other…

Then there's Furio Rossi, the Italian billionaire who just invested in our company. He's the tall, dark, and handsome descendant of Roman royalty, and he kisses my hand and fawns over me like I'm an angel sent from heaven. And when he invites me to Italy to audit one of his tech companies, I wonder how deep his affection goes.

Can we get this tech startup off the ground and turn it into a billion-dollar company?
Or will all our hard work--and the love we've found along the way--be for nothing?

SHARED BY THE BILLIONAIRES is a sizzling reverse harem love story filled with humor, suspense, and scintillating action. HEA guaranteed!

Smile Like You Mean It (Charlotte Reynolds Book 1) by Willow Hadley
Amazon Description

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?

Surviving Amber Springs: A Stand-alone Contemporary Romance by Siobhan Davis
Surviving Amber Springs: A Stand-alone Contemporary Romance by Siobhan Davis
Amazon Description

An emotional, angsty, suspenseful, second chance romance from the USA Today bestselling author of Inseparable and When Forever Changes.

Let him who is without sin cast the first stone…

I’m the second-most hated person in Amber Springs.

First place honors go to my twin, Ethan; however, hate isn’t a strong enough word to convey how people feel about him.

Not that I blame anyone—some days, I hate him too. Mostly, I’m just lost and afraid, drowning in a sea of betrayal and guilt, wondering how this happened right under my nose.

There’s no choice but to leave. To move clear across the country in a last-ditch attempt to start over.

Transferring to a new school midway through senior year is hellish for most people. For me, it’s a welcome relief—until someone discovers our secret and now everyone knows.

The pointing, whispering, and scathing looks follow me around again, and I’m back to square one. Except, this time, I’m not alone.

Axel, Skeet, and Heath took me under their wing from the minute I arrived here. I’ve no idea why three of the hottest guys in town took any interest in me or why they continue to have my back, but I’m so grateful to have them in my corner.

Because, right now, they’re the only reason I’m not following my brother into an early grave.

This is an upper YA/NA STAND-ALONE #whychoose contemporary romance. Due to sensitive content and possible triggers, this book is recommended to readers aged eighteen and older. Please refer to the note at the start of the book. This is a full length novel.

Unconventional: A Reverse Harem Love Story (Reverse Harem Story Book 1) by: Rebecca Royce
Amazon Description

*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.

Thoughts from Paige
Well, no surprise here…this is another one I ended up just buying.  This is a complete trilogy, and I totally fell in love with each character.  This is another contemporary book, our characters are in their final year of college (MC has another year if I remember correctly).

Our MC has dyslexia.  I’m not sure I’ve come across that in literature before, but I have a family member with dyslexia and they mentioned several of the same things our MC does.

I’m not a fan of the prequels in each book, but I LOVED the story. Past abuse is discussed.
