Emerald by Jenna Lee

The Book ✯✯✯✯

Do you love reverse harem? Are you still on a book hangover from Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington's Seduction (Curse of the Gods series) and looking to fill the void?

This. Right here. This book is what you're looking for. While there isn't as much build up in this story, and instalove is common, it is explained away by the fact that she knew them when she was little and then had her memory wiped for a period of time. It's fantasy, and fine. I'll just roll with that.

The writing is witty and fun with a distinctive Australian flair. While there is nothing too descriptive in the first book despite the cover, I can certainly tell where things could get steamy in the next.

Be warned, this is a solid New Adult/Adult Fantasy. Cussing abounds, and Dara is not very, ahem, ladylike. However, she is still incredibly likable.

I enjoyed reading Emerald, and am looking forward to book 2 (Topaz) but I will say that in reverse harem series, I prefer not being able to pick any of them. I want to be able to pick them all right along with the lead female. In this one? I totally ship #TeamBlair. While not necessarily a failing, it is a possible shortcoming if I continue to have the same favorite and the only reason this one gets a 4 star rating from me.

It's quick, it's fun, and you can read it in a sitting. It's coming out in March--so look for it! I'll be adding a link here on the blog when it goes live for the public.

Thank you to Jenna Lee and the #Squad for providing me with this free ARC in exchange for an honest review.

  3. Hmm, I can't say I've ever heard of reverse harem, but I sat just guessing at the meaning and kind of faded out for a bit ;)
