This was not the theme I was anticipating focusing on this week. I was all set for a different request, and then I read not one, not two, but THREE books where I felt the harem and fucked up to the point they needed some massive, massive groveling. One of them sort of gave it to me, but I’m feeling quite unsatisfied. I wanted the FMC to give them hell!
So I headed off to find some books with some heartfelt groveling from our harem. It wasn’t that easy to find books worth of the theme, in my opinion. I ended up including the book that inspired this reader request, But Did You Die, since this is one of the best groveling I’ve read. So there’s a bonus book this week.
I hope we can all find a book where the harem deservedly grovels, and has to win back the love of our FMC. She deserves it!

Be well, and happy reading!
P.S. Since some of these are series, the groveling won’t happen until later on. Just a heads up.
Five years ago, they made my life a living hell. They teased me, abused me, and called me a witch.
Little did they know…
Now, I’m back for my senior year of high school. New hair, new style, new personality. I’ll no longer be the weird girl hiding in the shadows. Instead, I’ll embrace all of my darkness.
Revenge on the boys—the men—who bullied me. The football star, the musician, the bad boy, and the class president. I’ll make them pay for what they did to me.
One spell at a time.
Buckle up, boys and girls. You’re not going to like me by the time this book ends. I never said I’m the hero of the story, did I? I’m just the crazy bitch with a voodoo doll.

the Butterfly finally stops dancing
and will learn how to fly
Dance Butterfly Dance is book 1 of a duet and will be completed in
Burn Butterfly Burn
A contemporary why choose romance set in the third year of university. Multi POV, multiple love interests, very detailed high steam scenes, No full MM but a fluid scene with her in the middle.
Savy St. James is a sad lonely girl with too many secrets to count. She hides away in her oversized frumpy clothes and thick glasses wishing she was brave enough to be seen without her mask.
One small favor backfires and forces her into a fake date deal by the school’s hot shot quarterback. Him and his three best friends treat her like a pet to play with and are careless with her until she’s had enough and breaks the deal. But when her secrets are revealed and her masks are stripped away, they will all burn for it.
Tate Valor thinks this nerdy girl is the perfect choice to use as his shield keeping all the groupies and gold diggers off his back. Savy’s a built in tutor to help him drag his marks back up so he doesn’t get benched. He never expected the make out show he forces her to put on in public to affect him more than it does her.
Jude Dixon is the wild child, f**k boy of the team. His crazy antics that match his white blond hair, multiple piercings and slightly psycho personality couldn’t be any different from the shy little doll Tate’s brought into his orbit. He’s the first to see the treasure that she is and stakes his claim when he falls hard and fast for her even when she doesn’t want to be claimed.
Beckett James had his shot at going pro blown right along with his knee. With football no longer a choice, he’s lost and depressed. Savy’s sweet heart and peach smelling hair has more than his interest stirring. He wants to peel back the masks she hides under and see the real her.
Asher James doesn’t give a sh*t about the bookworm his friends are obsessing over. He only has one obsession, the Butterfly that dances in the cage for him. It doesn’t matter that she’s never spoken to him in two years. He wants her and only her…until Savy starts getting under his skin and he sees that maybe he’s been the one in the cage all along.
WANTED: Three fake boyfriends. Must be tall, ripped — and willing to teach me how to kiss.
My name is Layla Thompson, and I am undateable.
Seriously. I’m twenty-eight and I’ve never had a boyfriend. And with my thirties rapidly approaching, I’m starting to lose patience.
Lucky for me, I have three overprotective best friends who are all-too-eager to help hone my dating skills.
There’s Zack, the huge rugby player with the cheeky grin and rippling biceps.
Josh, the boy-next-door with the sculpted jaw and calculating stare.
And Luke, the silver-haired divorcee… who also happens to be my old professor.
After a bad date leaves me crying on their shoulders, the three men are determined to help me find a guy. Together, they agree to be my ‘practice boyfriends’, and come up with a lesson plan packed with fake dates, make out sessions, and classes on flirty texting. In return, I just have to make an appearance on their relationship advice podcast once a week. Easy.
But as my lessons become more and more intense, we soon find ourselves getting in too deep. Every butterfly-inducing touch lingers a little too long, and every molten kiss ends in fireworks. It’s not long before I realise that their friendship isn’t enough for me anymore. I want more.
The guys have been teaching me how to get a boyfriend, and now it’s time I put their lessons to the test.
Three times over.
Faking With Benefits is a sizzling fake dating romance featuring multiple love interests, tons of molten fake relationship heat, and a whole lot of heart. No cheating, and an ultra-sweet HEA guaranteed!

I have read and enjoyed every book by this author to date. Definitely recommend!
I must be cursed, or the Tree of Life messed up.
Fire is an evil power, only wielded by those of the Underworld, so why do I, a Spirit witch, have it?
As I turn eighteen, I become the Crown Princess of the Gaia Realm, a home to humans and witches. My name is Carmen, and me and my family rule. We’re a family of Spirit witches. Sometimes we can see the dead. Some of us have clairvoyance, or an affinity with animals. But me? I also have elemental magic, the most dangerous of all: the power to burn.
After my Crowning, I begin training to take the throne. I have three trainers. Ares, son of the War Commander, to teach me battle strategy. Matthew, a strong Spirit witch, to help me focus my power. And Cristian, a human, son of a blacksmith, to teach me weaponry. I’m supposed to find a strong witch as a match to help maintain the magical boundary that keeps my realm safe. I’ve never thought about my future match, until now.
For the first time in my life, I’m interacting with young men, and I’m drawn to all three of them. How do I keep the secret of my evil power? My heart flutters when I touch them, but who can I trust?
Heir to the Underworld is the first in this new upper YA/NA series of witchy Underworld books. The main characters are eighteen and older, and this is a slow burn RH.
Now a complete series!
After I rescued these jerks from a plane crash, you’d think they’d be nicer to me.
I die, like all the time. My track record of hilarious, freak accidental deaths would be impressive if it weren’t so embarrassing.
And when I come back, I’m naked. Every. Dang. Time.
After my plane was sabotaged and crashed into the jungle, I rescued five male survivors from the wreckage.
I could have let them die, but no, I decided to pull their stupid carcasses from the wreckage. I’m immortal, not a monster.
Yes, they’re hot, now is not the time to do something about that.
The five sexy jaguar shifters are on a mission to locate someone, a rare phoenix shifter. Phoenix, the legendary creature, reborn every time it dies. Wait…
…Could they be looking for me?
It doesn’t matter since they walked away and left me to die in the Amazon rainforest. A place full of interesting new ways for a klutz like me to die. Surviving the jungle is harsh, but it’s nothing compared to how they have treated me.
And the worst part?
It turns out these bullies are my fated mates. Yep, I must be cursed.
I can’t wait to escape the jungle and leave these guys behind, but another part of me is begging to love them…
Was the Amazon always this hot?
“But Did You Die?” is a comedy filled, bully (only in book one), paranormal romance series that includes jaguar shifters, a mysterious underground society, fated mates, and an incredibly clumsy Phoenix. Follow Amaryllis as she discovers who she is and ‘collects’ her soulmates along the way! It is full of humor, adventure, and scenes to entice and thrill you… or to make you unexpectedly snort with laughter. The series will have a HEA…it will just take a little while to get there!
Thoughts from Paige
I love this series! They crash-land on an island, so they are definitely forced together. I do recommend this one a lot!
I broke the pact and now I’m stuck with five sexy mates.
Wolves aren’t supposed to mate humans. Humans also aren’t supposed to interrupt sacred mating ceremonies, but I had a good reason, all right? I needed magic, and I needed a lot of it to save my little sister from the Moon Shadow plague running rampant in human territory.
Do the wolves think twice about consequences? No. They’ve been careless of the side effects caused by their little territory battles. They have never cared about us.
But they’ll care now, because I have all of their magic in the palm of my hand.
Literally. The Goddess Crescent was supposed to be a myth, the power to turn a human and unite the major clans. I just didn’t expect it to bond me to an Alpha from each of the five packs, and now I’m afraid I bit off far more than I can chew.
* Five Fated Mates with No Choosing Required
* Slow-Burn Romance
* Rejected Mate/Second Change tropes with severe groveling by book 3

I got dumped and fired for not making babies with my boss.And now my only way to get revenge is to become a nanny for his enemies…
My plan for revenge was simple: Get a job with the Graves Brothers, my ex’s biggest competitors.
Except the alphahole brothers thought my ex sent me as a company spy and refused to hire me!
I was all but defeated, when their sweet-as-pie niece demanded she wanted ME as her nanny.
Was I the most unqualified nanny in the history of nannies? Abso-FN-lutely!
But if there was a chance it could lead to a job with the Graves brothers, I was taking it.
I just never imagined these three arrogant brothers would bring me to my knees…
Zander, the oldest brother and CEO of their company, is so professional that he has the reputation for sleeping and screwing in his perfectly tailored suits. I HATE how my body responds to all of his commands.
Kyrin, the least professional of the brothers, is all swagger and cowboy hats. One look from him could melt any woman’s panties. He makes it his goal to break me like a horse, and it feels like defying gravity not to submit.
Knight, Kyrin’s twin, has a mile-wide ego and a smile that should be illegal. He’s determined to prove that I am incapable of working for them, but whenever another man looks my way, his possession over me flares.
I wasn’t supposed to catch feelings for them. I wasn’t supposed to become their GOOD little girl.
Now that my revenge plan is in motion, my ex is trying to frame me for a crime and tear me and the brothers apart.
And the men I’ve grown to love? They don’t believe I’m innocent.
I guess I’ll have to show them just how BAD this little nanny can be….

All I want is to be left alone.
I’m invisible, headed to a blissful solo future until the Wyvern Pack destroys my dream of independence.

I’ll never awaken, and I’ll never ever give the Wyverns my heart…
Because all they’ll do is rip me apart.

…and maybe throwing away the mystery pills wasn’t such a good idea after all.
I’m on a mission to find the lost virgin omega. To return her to Howl’s Edge immediately.
When I lay eyes on her, I want to claim her. And my pack wants her too.
But she’s not ours.
Tiana’s feisty, and I can’t keep my eyes off her, especially when she goes into heat during the cruise ship wedding.
She’s stranded with me. And my pack of alphas.

From Book 1:
“I need her. Name your price.”
At twenty-three, you would think I could say no to being traded to the enemy, but that’s not how life works when you grow up in an organized crime family. I consider myself lucky to have grown up at all.
Ten years ago, my brother was murdered in the gang war that split the city of St. Adrian down the middle. My family took the South Side, and the North Side went to them. The Gentlemen.
Now the leader of the Gentlemen is asking for my help and my father has been nice enough to agree to his terms. In exchange for my sister’s protection, I need to cross the divide and live with the family that killed my brother.
Too bad I’ve never been great at playing nice.
Nico, Beck and Rush are the enemy. The leaders of the Gentlemen. They’re conceited, lying, murderous assholes and they’re the reason I’ve been trained all my life to cheat, steal, and shoot my way to the top.
I’m ready to take them down from the inside. I just hope they don’t get to me first. After all, a truce between two enemies is a promise waiting to be broken.
