Reverse Harems With a Harem Member Rockin’ a Dad Bod – Part 1

Hello Lovlies! This week I received a fun request. As you can see from the title, this weeks post features one (or more) of the harem members with a dad bod, soft body, or even yummy big ole bears (but not necessarily shifters). So reader beware, not all of the guys are going to have perfectly muscled bodies. I’m excited. In fact, I’ve read quite of the following books featured in today’s list. This list is to the best of my knowledge and searches. Hopefully none of them were tagged incorrectly. If so, just give me a shout and I’ll get it fixed. Per usual, the link, blurb, and phone come verbatim from Amazon. I think we need more hottie dad bods wrote about due to the fact I could only find 14 instead of my usual 20 books. Apologies.

As always, Happy Reading! – Quare Eligere

Corsets & Quartets by Mercy DeSimone
Amazon Description

Jane Austen never had to live through the humiliation of online dating. Of course, she also died a spinster. It was probably a relief. For a single, curvy girl over 40, love is hard to find - and marriage is a myth. It's not like I'm looking for a knight in shining armor; I’ve learned to take care of myself. Especially now, as a struggling romance writer, stuck in a dead-end retail job, I thought I was done with dating. Swiping left was my default mode until three sexy men made me think twice. It started with Heath - the divorced veterinarian with a dad bod who’s into loyalty and heavy petting. He introduced me to his friend, Mark, the ambitious, local celebrity chef who really knows how to heat things up in the kitchen. Next came his neighbor, Simon, the aging expat rockstar trying to hide from his personal demons. Could I be the muse to help him regain his rhythm? Each has some very modern ideas about love and dating, if I’m brave enough to write my own story. The bottom line - I’m tired of trying to make myself small to fit someone else's ideal of what's sexy and beautiful. My days of indulging assholes who make me feel bad about myself are over. If I can’t have my HEA, I will damn well write it for every girl who needs hope. Especially if it means finding myself in the process. Is it possible to find one man to fill all your needs? I’m not so certain anymore. Maybe it’s true - corsets really do need a quartet to thrive.  What would Jane do? ChickLit with an unconventional twist? Corsets and Quartets is a standalone, unconventional romance where sometimes the best relationships are the ones in which we don't settle for one love.

My one piece of advice: Never kiss a stranger. See, I kind of kissed this sexy man at the bar on a dare once, and it turns out he’s a Royal Fae destined to be my mate. Now I’ve been dragged to the Elemental Fae Academy to control the powers I unlocked that night. So kissing? Yeah, that won’t happen again. Nope. Lesson learned. Except, I kind of kissed Titus, too. And well, now, I’m in a world of trouble. I keep burning things down, flooding dorms, and I’ve attracted the campus mean girl brigade. This Fae Realm is a nightmare come to life. Truly. But there are dreams here, too. Sexy ones. And they’re in the form of five Elemental Fae mentors. They’re supposed to help me control my powers, but who’s going to keep the elements from controlling me? Note: This is a medium burn "why choose" paranormal romance, and book one of the Elemental Fae Academy trilogy.

Hard Limits: Dark WhyChoose Romance (Queen of Hearts Trilogy Book 1) by Suki Williams
Amazon Description

Call girls are meant to fuck the client then go home, not fuck them up, but I never minded getting my hands just a little dirty.

Homeless teen turned prostitute turned elite call girl with some… unusual extracurricular activities was not what I’d set out to become, but survivors can’t be choosers. Now, I’ve got a life for myself, and I even like it most of the time, but a favor owed to my boss/ex-lover is about to mess all of that up.

Her husband’s become a problem, and when the team of men she’s hired can’t seal the deal, I’m brought in for some assistance. What a fucking mess. Especially since the team consists of my favorite client, his brother, my roommate, and my roommate’s boyfriend.

When the shitstorm of my present starts to collide a bit too much with my past, I’ve got to hope my skills are sharp enough to keep me in one piece.

There’s an unexpected danger that’s found me once again, but lucky for me, I’ve always thrived in the darkness.

Trigger warning: non con, dub con, BDSM scenes, a torture scene, and other adult material that people could find triggering.

I may have accidentally sort of kind of tied myself to those hunks I mentioned earlier and may or may not literally be unable to go anywhere without at least one of them. Oops!

Monsters (Prodigium Academy Book 1) by Katie May
Amazon Description

As the daughter of Dracula, you would think I’d be born the perfect monster.

You couldn’t be more wrong.

As far as monsters go, I’m a screw up—if I’m not tripping over my own feet, I’m accidentally murdering someone (it’s a real issue, guys).

Left with no choice, Dad decides to send me to Prodigium—otherwise known as Monster Academy—to train me on how to be a better monster.

When bodies turn up on campus, I’m the prime suspect (not that I can blame them. I’ll be pretty suspicious too if bodies drained of blood show up right after Dracula’s daughter arrives).

With the help of my mortal-nemesis Vin, Van Helsing’s son

Frankie, Frankenstein’s son

Mason, Medusa’s son

And Jack (sometimes Hux), Dr. Jekyll’s son

I might have a chance of uncovering the truth.

If I’m not murdered first.

The struggles of being a vampire, am I right?

This is a horror comedy reverse harem with some dark elements. After all, you can’t have a bunch of monsters without some darkness. This is book one of a series.

It only takes one death to change everything. Her death shook us to our core, reshaping how our entire lives operated. Including how my overprotective foster brothers treated me. No one in our family had come from an easy life. The concept of danger wasn’t something we feared-- it was something we instilled in others. People feared us. We took it upon ourselves to serve as the lawless justice system on our Boston college campus. Why? Because the distribution of laced drug products is what killed her, and maybe if someone had given a shit before us, she’d still be here. While I feel like we’re working towards the same cause, my boys begin to act strangely around me. It feels like they are hiding something. But I’m doing the same. What would they think if they knew about the vivid daydreams I had of the world burning? It plagues my mind and entices me into a deadly allure that only flames provide. Blood will be spilled as secrets bubble to the surface and are laid bare, but I’ll make damn sure that blood isn’t my own or my families. Because we’re the Ravens, and we won’t let anyone get in our way. Raven Blood is the first installment of the Red Masques series, a paranormal reverse harem novel. It features one badass leading lady, her possessive and psycho ravens, and a dark storyline that will leave you wanting more.

Spirit Called: A Reverse Harem Tale (Wild Spirits Book 1) by Aeryn Havens
Amazon Description

Wiser folk than me say that home is where the heart is, but my heart hasn’t had a place to belong in years.
As an empath with the ability to sense and influence emotions, this left me on the cusp of burnout and running low on hope. Add in a world that wasn’t ready to acknowledge the gifted, or anyone else with extra abilities as full citizens, I wasn’t sure how much longer I could go on without coming apart at the seams.
When a guest ranch in Montana offered me a place on their staff, I leapt at the opportunity to make a fresh start. I was not prepared for the wild magic that stirred in my blood the instant I arrived. The land itself recharged my spirit, the horses I had been hired to work with gave me purpose, and the three cowboys determined to charm me filled my heart to overflowing. Sharp Caleb, soft Tad, and reserved Oren made it impossible to choose between them, each deserving all of my devotion.
However, even my natural optimism wasn’t so naïve to think I could get everything I never let myself dream of without making some hard choices. When a company of sadistic hunters encroach on our newfound peace, we must band together to preserve the sanctity of our new home. As our closely guarded secrets are laid bare, will we all come together? Or will everything fall apart…
This series is intended for mature audiences. 18+ readers only! It contains language and sexual situations. This is a slow burn reverse harem where the girl gets all the guys. Why Choose?

Wolf's Bane (Wolves Next Door Book 1) by Auryn Hadley
Wolf’s Bane (Wolves Next Door Book 1) by Auryn Hadley
Amazon Description

The things that go bump in the night are supposed to be headboards, not monsters.

Leaving my husband was hard. Trying to face the world alone with my teenage daughter is the sort of thing nightmares are made of, but I caught a break. My best friend just hired me for a great job. It's not anything special, simply managing the leasing office of this very fancy and highly exclusive neighborhood, yet the perks mean I get my second chance.

Speaking of perks, my rent-free house is right beside not just one handsome man, but five! Each one is hotter than the last, and all of them seem interested in me. Maybe I can't remember the last date I was on, but if I want to master being a strong woman, then this is a good place to start. It's just dating, right?

Normal life stuff.
Not so much.

Everyone around us has these strange golden eyes. Then there are the questions no one will answer. And who cares if there's a lot of wildlife running around at night? I do, especially when a wolf keeps sneaking into my backyard. I have a kid to worry about. Things have got to change before someone gets bitten!

Normal is going out the window, and fast. My neighbors say I don't belong here, and they don't mean because I'm Hispanic. Never mind that I just heard a man growl. Now they're talking about fated somethings, and I'm pretty sure they mean me.

I feel like I'm going crazy!

Because when I said I wanted to learn how to be strong, this wasn't what I meant at all. Still, when it comes to taking care of my little girl, I will definitely learn how to be the biggest bitch on the block.

I just hope that doesn't become literal.

Wolf's Bane is a 136,000 word, full-length novel with multiple love interests.  Note: Wolves Next Door series contains profanity, consensual sex, and one adult woman who
