I hope you are all safe and well.
It is still Thursday, where I am, so I’m totally counting this as a success. Next up in our completed series set #2 is contemporary romance! I tried to steer away from bully and dark/horror, which was more challenging than I anticipated! It must have been the trend. Luckily I have both on the docket, so you all have those posts coming in the near(ish) future.
At any rate, a selection of more recently completed contemporary Reverse Harems is below. I hope you can find something to binge this weekend!

My car broke down on an icy road in the middle of nowhere.
I’ve got no money in the bank, no place to stay, and no food for my kids. Can it get any worse?
Sure. A police car pulls up.
The county sheriff calls his twin brother to tow my car for repairs that'll probably cost more than the beater is worth. They say don’t worry about it. They only want to help.
Sure they do.
These gorgeous guys just happen to have two friends who own a luxurious motel called Little Cypress Lodge. I walk into this incredible hotel and it's like I've entered a new fantasy world. It's warm, there's plenty of food for my kids, and they say I can stay. For free. As long as I need a place. The four of them even want to hire me to do some modeling work for their new fashion line. Crazy, right?
Me. The broke down, homeless single mom.
If I can keep up the act long enough to make some deposits on a new place, I can start a new life for me and my kids. If I don't lose my heart first.

I quite liked this book. I did read the second, but haven't yet read the third.

My name is Hadley Parker, and today I take control of my life.

These rich kids don’t like me though. When Hawk Davenport decides he doesn’t want me here, his friends back him.
Along with Hawk, Westley Warren, Cam Rutherford, and Mason Hayes rule this school and nobody dares go against them.
They don’t know the real me. I won’t back down.

Four of dad's hottest military friends turned billionaires + one fortune 500 job opening +
one ivy league grad = One
lucky girl! Whoever said three was a crowd never met my dad's four gorgeous best friends.

How'd I know I'd be working with four of the most eligible bachelors on the planet?
And now they all want to teach me more than just how to do my job.
This is book one in Their Temptation Series.

I'm late to the party with this trope. I was just going to read a sample to see if it would fit the theme of this post and ended up reading the whole book. I liked the backstory of each character, and am looking forward to the next book. There was some heavy foreshadowing there at the end, hopefully, it can remain in our sweet reads category!
From the gutter to the stars...
Dance is in my blood.
It’s what keeps me sane, out of trouble. It used to keep them out of trouble too.
A group of boys I grew up with.
Xeno, York, Zayn and Dax.
We were a crew once and we ruled the clubs.
Separate we were insanely good, together we were unbeatable. F*&ing on fire.
I was their girl and they were my Breakers.
Until they did something they promised they never would; break my heart.
We were seventeen when they left me.
You see, for kids like us, dance was all we had.
Growing up in a rundown housing estate in London with no prospects can make you view the world differently.
It can make you choose the wrong path.
I chose dance, and they chose crime.
Three years later I’ve won a scholarship to Stardom Academy. I try to forget my past.
But how can I do that when the four boys who hurt me are back?
And this time they’re following in my footsteps and joining the academy too.
**Freestyle is book one of this new gritty, contemporary reverse harem academy romance for 17+ readers and deals with adult themes and some subjects you may find upsetting. If you love dance, your men on the criminal side, alpha hot holes and the friends-to-enemies-to-lovers trope, this is for you. Contains foul language and sexual scenes and ends on a cliffhanger.**

The prologue was a bit ominous...but the first chapter gave me Step it Up vibes. The series has been featured on our RH Best Sellers list posts for quite a few weeks, and I can see why from the sample. Well written, and the plot sucks you in.
Four contractors, good with their hands and willing to share. Does this good girl have it in her to say yes to her handymen?
My name's Piper Drake, and I have a problem. When I take a look at my late grandfather's long-abandoned house after learning he left it to me, one thing comes to mind: a listing titled For Sale: One Handyman Special.
That's before I meet the four hunky handymen Grandpa arranged to do the renovations. Childhood friend Carter, brooding Jace, golden boy Luke and sports-loving Trey are beyond drool-worthy... and I do more than my fair share of drooling.
When my apartment building is sold and I have no choice but to move onto the property, there's no shortage of eye candy to spark my interest - though I have to wonder if there's maybe something wrong with me, crushing on four men at a time like I do.
Or am I onto something? Because after weeks of fighting the attraction, the guys reveal something I could never have imagined in my wildest dreams. Do I have it in me to go with my heart and accept all four of them into my life?
HANDYMAN SPECIAL is Book One of Five in the Handymen Series, a contemporary romance with plenty of comedy, drama and emotion. It is NOT a standalone and features a HFN ending in terms of the romantic relationships. The story extends over the course of the series, but the devotion of Piper's handymen is never in question.
Everyone has secrets at Lost Lake Academy.
Following a tragic turn of events, my once-normal teenage life gets wrenched out from under me.
Suddenly I’m the new kid at Lost Lake Academy, a boarding school for the elite of the elite. The students here are nothing like me, and all I want to do is get back home to pick up the pieces of my former life.
I’m determined to keep my head down and avoid high school politics, but when three of the most dangerous and mysterious of my classmates set their sights on me, I find I don’t know whether to run away or try to get closer.
Everyone at Lost Lake has secrets, some more deadly than others. But not everything is as it seems…I might have some secrets of my own.
Hidden Lies is a full length new adult contemporary romance. It is a reverse harem novel, and is the first book in a trilogy.
The Southern Aristocracy brought together by one woman - Dahlia Aldridge.
I had lived here most of my life in a blissful state of ignorance, surrounded by a loving family and the other residents of Wildberry Lane. Specifically, their sons - the heirs to some of the largest fortunes in the country. I had grown used to them acting as my shadows, protecting me and surrounding me with enough affection that I never questioned if their words were in fact the truth.
Then the Brooks twins came to town. Suddenly, everything I had known about myself was being shattered as they dug up my worst insecurities and exploited them to the world. I began questioning everything.
Kingston Ross. Stratton Lee. Yates Carter. Lincoln & Sterling Gates.
They have been able to protect me from everything… but myself. My boys carry a darkness inside of them that has never scared me. The shadows of deeds done at night, away from the spotlight of being who we were in this societal hierarchy. They think I’m afraid of that, but they couldn’t be farther from the truth.
I wasn’t afraid of their darkness.
I wasn’t afraid of my feelings for them, ones that had grown from friendship into so much more.
I wasn’t even afraid of expressing that to them… eventually.
What I was afraid of? That I would hurt those around me with my shame and pain.
I would just have to perfect the art of suffering in silence.
Wildberry Lane - Home to the extremely wealthy and powerful Southern elite.
Perfection of Suffering, book 1 in The Shadows of Wildberry Lane trilogy, is M. Sinclair’s debut contemporary reverse harem novel. This work features a naive female character hiding a dark secret of her own, the men in her life that will do anything to keep her safe, and a scandal that stretches far beyond the safety of Wildberry Lane’s gate.
Warning: This book does contain sexual content for +18, swearing, violence, and triggers when it comes to specifically, but not limited to, eating disorders and bullying. Important to note, the bullying is NOT done by the harem, but rather outside sources. This is a slow/medium burn series.
University of Aurora wasn’t my first choice to pursue my photography degree.
Nor was some random apartment with three bros my first choice for housing.
Yet here I am, surrounded by mountains on campus and three hot, but annoying – and sometimes downright hateful - bros in Seth, Hunter, and Lucas at home.
I’m trying to ignore it all: the mess, the wild parties, and the fact that they pass the same woman between them like some kind of trophy.
Yet as each day goes by, my hot, annoying, alpha-hole RoomHates are somehow turning into something that I can’t seem to resist.
Thoughts from Paige
I am fairly certain this series is complete as of Sept 30. It sounds like it, but please correct me if I am wrong.
