This is a hard book for me to review. I am going to review and rate it as an objective reviewer and on a personal level as separately as possible to be fair. There is a lot of good to this book. The story is original; the set up in this first book has great potential to become an excellent series. It's easy to see how it will all be woven together. The world building and world history are nicely done and I hope each book continues to add even more layers and depth. There's a wealth of paranormal characters, vampires, wolf shifters, angels, the fae, and good and evil witches. There's plenty of danger, action, even magic. The characters, Accacia, Rhain, Devin, and Ezra are all nicely developed. Accacia is a smart, strong lead female. She's lonely but doesn't seem bitter, just focused. The men are strong, fearless soldiers. Ever Vale, the prophecy, the five sisters, five clans; this is all fantastic. This is an entertaining book, one I think others will enjoy, so as a pure reviewer I will rate it a 4 star.
Now for my personal rant. I liked Accacia. I liked the guys. The four together though really bothered me. I don't want to do any spoilers, but I didn't feel that the guys cared about Accacia even a little. It wasn't stated, but I feel that the prophecy chose them to find her and that they are meant to be together to help fulfill the prophecy along with the other 4 sisters and their men. Once they found Accacia, Rhain professed to be overwhelmed with his feelings for her, yet he still disrespected her with another woman at the bar and again in a lesser manner once they returned to Ever Vale. Devin seems interested in her AND every other female he runs across. That he purposefully flirts in front of her could be alright except that he touches them (too far) and even in conversation talking about other women he smiles and makes comments about how pleasurable they would be. Heck no! And then there's Ezra. He's still completely in love with his deceased wife. Ready to die and join her. No interest in moving beyond his love and guilt over her death. He's not even nice to Accacia most of the time. His only remaining bond is with his brothers. There were several instances of the guys dismissing or belittiling Acccacia's wishes. They disrespected her feelings with other women. I read Reverse Harem because I love the fantasy of one woman being the center of the universe with a group of incredible men. I want to see the female treasured, loved, protected, cherished. It's unrealistic, sure, but I love it. This book upset me instead. True 'feeling sick to my stomach' upset at times. Guess that at least proves how realistic the characters seem!
I do recommend this book. Other readers may have an entirely different view of the men and the relationships than I do. I will read book 2. I love the idea of the 5 sisters and there's an excellent chance that the other relationships will be more along the lines of how I want the RH to be. I have a good feeling about the wolves.
We get to meet Accacia (Cia for short - love the name!) when her world is turned upside down, learning about this other world she has been unknowningly a part of. We get to meet her 3 drool worthy men/vampires: Rhain, Ezra, and Devin. I absolutely adore Devin but it will be toss up which one I am going to love the most come the other 2 books in Cia's story. I can't wait to read more about the consequences of what happened in book 1 (between Rhain and Cia) and what will happen if they drink her blood because of her abilities. I am looking forward to meeting Clover and seeing what happens on this part of the journey. I can't wait to see the barriers come down with Ezra, since he is the focus in Book 2. Also Blake (swooooon)...that's all I'm going to say <3. I thought there was a great mix of story, drama/action, and steam (can't wait to read about her and Devin!!)
There are so many things to be excited about with Bea Paige's debut! I am really looking forward to this series and where she takes us. I recommend everyone who loves a great fantasy/paranormal story read this, especially if you are a follower of #whychoose ;) BTW, this world would be amazing as a coloring book or picture book. The description of Ever Vale is magical sounding!
Relationships are hard to manage when her partners tire of not being able to go out during the day, she has basically decided it isn't worth the hassle.
However, when a co-worker jut doesn't seem to understand the word no, a tall dark and handsome stranger steps in to help, she didn't realize it would lead to her life being uprooted.
Accacia is drawn into a parallel world of paranormal creatures and a Queen who wants her dead. She is forced to put her trust into three vampires who want to devour her in more ways than one.
Rhain, Ezra, and Devin all have different opinions on how to deal with Accacia, but all seem to fight an attraction she causes them.
Vampires are my jam!
If I'm looking for a new book, the first thing I go to is paranormal and usually involving vampires.
This book hits two of my favorite genres. Reverse Harem and Paranormal.
Bea Paige writes beautifully and you get sucked into the characters lives and how they feel.
I found myself speed reading through the book because I just had to know what would happen next.
I've already pre-ordered the next two books in the series because I need to know what will happen.
How will the men react to Accacia being in their world?
What will happen when they find the other "sisters"?
If you are thinking of reading this book, do it.
You will not be sorry. I think you will get sucked into like I did.
It is well-written!
