If you’re looking for a unique twist on the reverse harem genre, look no further than books featuring a virgin male main character. While it can be challenging to find and verify these types of books, I’ve done the work for you.
In this blog post, I’ll be sharing 10 reverse harem books that feature a virgin male main character. Some of these books were selected from memory, while others required some serious sleuthing skills.
I hope you enjoy this list and find your next favorite read!
Growing up I had nothing but my good grades and them. The Vanguard brothers are the golden boys of our school, destined to be the alphas of our pack. They’re possessive, scaring away everyone else who might get close to me… until the night of their first shift.I’m been told over and over I can never be their mate, but the boy’s wolves have other ideas….
So, I’m whisked away, told to forget them and I do, right up until they walk in through my door, telling me all the things I’d secretly dreamed of.
That I’m their fated mate, and that they refuse to settle for anyone else. But I’m forced to push them away.
Because their parents were right to send me away. I’ll never be what they need me to be, but these guys?
Back then they never knew how to take no for an answer, and now they’re coming for me, whether I’m ready or not.
The Claiming Her Mates Complete Series Collection is a box set that contains the entire rejected mates paranormal wolf shifter romance trilogy along with the full-length prequel (Rejecting His Mate) and an exclusive never before published bonus scene.
My fated mate will rue the day he broke my heart and sent shifters to abduct me…
After my soulmate betrayed and rejected me, I didn’t think things could get any worse. But then three dangerous wolf shifters storm the club and drag me into the wilderness. They claim the world is ending and my only chance of survival lies with them.
I should be terrified of their glowing eyes and the way they destroy any threat in our path. But all I can think about is claiming the monsters as my own.
My ex has threatened to eviscerate any man who touches me. Good thing the deadly beast isn’t here. Revenge has never tasted so sweet…
*If you like dark spicy wolf shifter paranormal romance, fated mates, enemies-to-lovers, second-chance romance, scorching-hot, psycho beasts, and strong heroines, you’ll enjoy this series.
Don’t miss the Claiming Her Beasts series set in the same paranormal world!
I’m certifiably insane. Just ask my amazing therapist. He’s my soulmate and a vampiric serial killer. There’s no one I’d rather stalk more.
Except no more late night slinking for me. I’m in The Asylum, committed as a danger to myself and others. They tell me I’m delusional, which they aren’t wrong…except about what.
See, this place is made for supernaturals too dangerous to let roam free. The doctors, the staff, the family members that helped put us here are all in on it, trying to convince us magic is just another delusion. They plan to keep us here forever–sedated and docile.
Aren’t we all just perfect test subjects for inhumane experiments? Well, the doctors think so at least.
Yeah… it’s time to bust out of the loony bin. Unfortunately for our zookeepers we’re the most dangerous supernaturals there are and we haven’t been taking our medicine.
A genetically modified super alpha wolf monster. An ultra rare basilisk, so venomous he can’t leave any skin exposed. My dreamy serial killing vampire therapist.
Oh, and me. A genetic marvel, one of the few dhamphyr to ever exist and probably, just a little… more crazy than most.
Nighty, night Asylum. Don’t let the nightmares bite.
Author Note: Full-length STANDALONE! This is a why choose/reverse harem dark paranormal romance where the female lead does not need to choose between her three male love interests. There are m/m scenes, steam, and mature themes including: violence, language, and etc..

I’ve had this book on my list for a while now, ever since it was nominated as one of the Best RH of 2021 here on the site. This may just be my next read, the author packs so much in a single sentence.
“Stalkers weren’t supposed to accidentally stalk serial killers and they definitely weren’t supposed to abruptly realize they weren’t the craziest one in their obsessive relationship.” Woah. I learned a crap ton about our FMC from that line alone.
I LOVE when authors assume we can keep up, and don’t spell everything out for us. Please keep in mind I’ve read exactly one page of the first chapter. I couldn’t let myself go on because I want to finish the book I started at 4 am today.
Okay I lied, I read to the beginning of the second page too and had to stop at “murder cooler”. Seriously, thank you to whoever nominated this book. I’ve just bumped it up on my TBR list.
Update: I’m going to leave my initial thoughts here. It fits this theme request, if my memory serves me correctly.
My name is Freya Viotto, and I’m the daughter of the original vampire. Sounds like a line out of a movie, where there’s some epic tale of self-discovery and an exciting battle. Sadly, that’s not my story.
Freya Viotto is a vampire, but her legacy is different from those of her kind. In fact, it’s different even to that of her brothers. Freya is the only daughter of the original vampire, and she’s taken on his curse. As a child, she racked up kills faster than she learnt how to walk, and as she’s gotten older her power has only grown. The good thing is, so has her control.
But, her parents decided for her safety and that those around her, she’d spend her immortal life contained to her Clan. However, when her family are caught up in a sick, twisted attempt to kill one of their allies, Freya finally gets to earn her freedom.
The biggest catch? Freya has to track down her mating circle—her entire mating circle—and convince them to mate with her, whilst doing her best to stay alive. Because whilst she’s happy to finally be free, she’s one of the rare few. It’s her job to stop the rogue vampires that are now disloyal to the monarchy, and hope that she can keep her growing powers under control.
Freya’s Freedom is the first book in a vampire reverse harem series where the FMC will end up with more than one mate by the end of the series. It’s a slow-building harem but is a fast-burn and there is a guaranteed HEA. This series is set in the same universe as The Luna Series and is best read in conjunction with those.

It’s been a while since I read this book, and I didn’t rate it on Goodreads. I usually wait before rating something if I’m not sure how to rate it. So I didn’t hate it or love it enough to rate it accordingly. To be honest, I’m not sure what I thought of it. So I’m absolutely no help, except to say I did read and finish the book.
I rejected my fated mate and didn’t regret it for a second. Until now.
Shipped off to Ravenscroft University, a graduate school for the supernatural elite, I have a lot to live up to. As the heir to America’s most powerful pack, my life up to now has been spent in a gilded cage. But not for the reason you might think.
I was locked away, not to be protected, but because I was born broken. A disappointment to them all. A wolf who couldn’t shift.
This is supposed to be my fresh start, but my past won’t leave me alone. Not when he’s here. The arrogant wolf shifter who ruined my life after I turned him down seven years ago. Now, I’m a pariah, followed by the rumors my rejected mate has spread, hated by my classmates, isolated again.
From everyone but them.
A vampire prince.
A forbidden priest.
A powerful demigod.
A bully wolf.
I’m playing a dangerous game, and the rules say I can’t be with them. Then again, rules are made to be broken.
And when every moment spent with them brings me closer to finding my wolf, how can I stay away?
Warning: This book is not for the faint of heart. It contains an obsessive stalker, a foul-mouthed, inked and pierced werewolf, a naughty professor with a fondness for watching, a god of mischief, and plenty of heat. If you don’t like your books spicy, your men broody, built, and more bad than good, this is not the series for you. But if you do…read on, and welcome to The Mate Games.

Hot fae men? Check!
Pumpkin spice lattes? Check!
Steamy scenes and drama? Check!
A true happily ever after? Check!

The angst is high in this one. It’s not explicitly stated, but heavily implied, that the harem are all virgins. It’s part of the Silver Springs universe, and is a quick read.
The Abbot House has been cursed and abandoned for twenty-three years. Until now.
When Harriet’s mother receives a mysterious letter in the mail with the news that the curse is about to end, she wastes no time in uprooting Harriet’s life and moving them to the spooky New England town of Weeping Hollow.
Unlike the rest of her family, Harriet has no real magical talent—except for the unusual ability to see and interact with ghosts. A stupid and useless gift, in her opinion. Her lack of magical abilities has always made her feel like an outsider among other witches, and that feeling only solidifies when her fellow witches begin hazing her at her new school.
Things improve when Harriet befriends a group of amateur ghost hunters. Owen, Spencer, Nolan, and Mattie are some of the first people to ever accept Harriet for who she really is. But when they decide to investigate the deaths of two ghosts who constantly follow Harriet around, they accidentally uncover much darker and more dangerous secrets than they ever anticipated.
Thoughts from Paige:
Finding out you’re the daughter of a millionaire true crime novelist isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
When I was two, I was kidnapped. Kidnapped by a loving family, sure, but still kidnapped.
Now, my biological mom wants me to live with her on the opposite side of the country.
Her … and my new stepdad and his jerk of a son: Parrish.
Wannabe tattoo artist, languorous rich boy, pouty mouth.
Starting a new life on the West Coast sucks, especially when there’s no love lost between me and my new family.
Oh, and my biological father? Did I mention that he’s a serial killer who wants me to play his games?
Find the right clues, follow the right trail, or someone I love gets hurt.
But what if he’s just kidnapped someone I hate instead?
Parrish Vanguard is a royal asshole.
The question is: does he deserve to die?
With the help of Parrish’s best friends—Maxx and Chasm—I have to risk everything to save a boy who considers himself my sworn enemy. Even if I save his ass, he’ll never thank me.
Lucky for him that our love-hate relationship isn’t a deal breaker.
I’ll play, Dad.
Start the game.
STOLEN CRUSH is a 180,000 word love-hate/high school romance with suspense/thriller themes. This is book one of four in the series.
In the New Republic, every woman must marry five men.
It’s the law.
Welcome to the apocalypse.
Nix never put his name in the marriage lottery for a reason.
He doesn’t need a woman.
There aren’t that many to go around anyway after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 90% of the female population.
He has his job as head of the Security Squadron and it’s all he need.
He looks out for the township. He protects the few women there are left.
But when his name is called to be one of the five husbands to the woman rescued from the badlands, he doesn’t speak up to correct the error.
Because Audrey’s like no one he’s ever met before.
Fiesty. That’s the name for her.
Not like so many of the women they’ve brought back before.
She’s not broken. She might be just the woman to handle a rough, brutal man like him.
Sharing her with four other men is a small price to pay.
In fact, the closer they all grow, the more Nix realizes he might finally have again what he lost so long ago—a real family.
But when outside forces threaten everything he holds dear, Nix will be forced to face his deepest, darkest fear.
When Audrey’s life is endangered, will he be able to save the woman he’s just learned how to love?
NOTE: This book contains some dark elements and covers sensitive topics. Any reader that feels they shouldn’t venture into this apocalyptic world of sometimes harsh realities should please consider before reading. This is a standalone novel in the now complete Marriage Raffle Series. Books in the series include: Theirs to Protect, Theirs to Pleasure, Theirs to Wed, Theirs to Defy, Theirs to Ransom.
When an Omega turns 21, he or she is to attend Calling Wood University in search of their packs before their first heat.
Well, you see, I’m not like what society has labeled what Omegas should be. I don’t want to play homemaker and submit to a bunch of Alphas. So when I take Calling Wood by storm, I’m quick to show that the typical Alpha packs just won’t do.
I’m determined to find my scent match. And refuse to take a pack unless it’s who I’m meant to be with. Call me stubborn, but I know what I want.
After meeting almost every unclaimed pack in the school, I start to lose hope. That is, until I catch the scent of something that has me weak in the knees.
Tristan, Finn, Sawyer and Dominic are not like other Alphas. They’ve given up hope on finding their Omega, making school their whole lives. They don’t think they are good enough, worthy enough, to have their happily ever after.
But these sweet nerdy inexperienced boys aren’t going to know what hit them. I love a challenge and I’ve made it my mission to prove they are worthy. That we are worthy.
We Are Worthy is a non-shifter sweet standalone with lots of steamy moments. It will end on a HEA.

I don’t think that A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing has a virgin main character. Riley isn’t a virgin I think. It’s been a while. Sorry I’m not much help but I don’t think that the book fits into the theme.
Thank you so much for your comment! I don’t think she is either, although it’s hard to remember.
I think at least one of the men is, but it’s been awhile for me too. HAHA.
I did a quick skim of the beginning and it sounds like the men’s wolves wouldn’t respond without the FMC. I may have interpreted that as they were virgins. Drat, so hard to remember!
