Friends First – Reverse Harem

Hello hello!

I cannot believe we are nearing the end of August. School is starting back up, and the leaves will be changing soon. I’m looking forward to Autumn and some cooler weather.

The requested theme was friends to lovers. I tried to include some new-to-me books; hopefully, some will be new-to-you!

All My Loves: A Reverse Harem Romance (The Love Brothers Book 1) by Myra Wards
Amazon Description

What do you do when you have a huge crush on your best friend, or in my case best friends?

I’ve spent most of my life being the girl who tags along with the Love Triplets.
Three hot specimens, identical to most, but different in every way to me.

There’s Alex, the high school quarterback, whose deep, blue eyes I swear can see my soul.
Aiden, the smartest boy I know, who shares my love of academics and soccer. His nerdy talk twists me up inside. And Archer, the funniest person alive, whose full lips I’d die to taste. Don’t get me started on how he looks in gray baseball pants.

I was doing great suppressing my feelings and acting like every day was just another day. Unt ileverything changed. When the secret they’ve been keeping comes unraveled, and my arch-nemesis attacks in every way she can, will our friendship even survive?

All my Loves is the first novella in the Love Brothers duet. It’s a #whychoose, reverse harem romance, with lots of steam and a HFN.

Thoughts from Paige
I know I've read this, and I think I liked it.  I don't remember it though, so although it's not a negative review it isn't a glowing one either.  I'll update if I re-read it.  Sounds like a hallmark type plot, so I'm keeping it.

Triple Best Friend Heat: A Cowboy Reverse Harem Romance (Cowboy Heat Series) by Pepper Swan
Amazon Description

They’d been my best friends… until tragedy struck.
I never wanted to see them again.
Never say never.

When a generous offer comes in for the ranch I deserted two years ago, soon after my husband’s memorial, I decide it might be time to sell and give myself some closure. The only thing stopping me are my three best friends who still tend to the daily needs of the ranch. I owe it to them to show up in person and tell them my plans.

As soon as I see Toby again, the smoldering, hard-bodied loner, I know I’ve made a monumental mistake returning to the ranch I’d once loved. His touch generates a heat so intense I can hardly breathe.

When I meet up with Dale, with his smooth wit, that boy-next-door attitude, and his chiseled body, I find it impossible to control my dirty thoughts.

And when Josh, looking drop-dead gorgeous with his jeans slung low on his hips, and a smile that could melt skin, gives me one of his bear hugs, I lose all sense of purpose and realize how much I want these three rugged cowboys in my bed.

But am I ready for love again… and with my best friends? Are these brawny, strong-willed wranglers willing to share me? And if they are, how can I possibly sell the ranch?

What’s a cowgirl supposed to do?

Triple Best Friend Heat is a sizzling, stand-alone cowboy reverse harem romance. It’s rich with sexy ménage scenes, single and multiple partner scenes, and all done with a touch of humor that just might melt your Kindle. As with all my books, a HEA is always guaranteed… Thanks for reading!
