Rose had an almost desperate need for her magic,and seemed willing to do almost anything to get it....
This book soooo DID NOT go the way I expected, I read most of “Rose’s boys” and almost immediately felt their connect,it felt strong and beautiful and potent and when I got to the point where the big bad stepmother was going to rip them apart I had to stop because i had started to care for them soo much I was t ready for the heartbreak of their split.....
Then when I found out the book was finally out and got around to reading it I was too eager to read this to go back....
Not sure at the moment if that good or bad because at the moment ,I feel like Rose betrayed them more than step mom did...
Ok, first Rose felt more 19-21 than she does 24 going on 25, she may be dogged in her determination to find and get her magic but out of magic I NEVER felt I got to really know anything about her or her world ( very little to no world building is done) ( Witches have magic,a “witching “ community, and consorts but what else is there? Do they just live among humans hiding what they are ? Like say vampires usually do ? Or what ?) and Rose for all her determination felt timid and kinda tepid most of the time, soo overly cautious sneaking around and yet no one really seemed to care one way or the other....
What really disappointed the most was I thought romance despite Rose and her magical quest about her magic,I thought old and new love would lead the way and in rediscovering love that had never had a chance to be Rose would discover the truth and uncover the lies along the way... but the love of her boys now men would be first and foremost and the truth about the spark and magic with come along with....
Dear lord No!
Shakes head,except for their first meeting w/Ky and the alter meeting with Ky,Seth,Damon and Jin almost every meeting is more self serving and is mainly because she needs help finding her magic or proving a theory about her magic....
Honestly the guys start to just feel like tools and pawns in her magic... there nor world building really like I said,not even much character building, what has Rose been doing besides practicing for magic she doesn’t have yet,magic she’s desperate to have , ( why is she soo desperate ? Haven’t a clue ?) did she go to collage ? What happened to her step sisters? Does she have a job ? If soo what is it ? If not,why ?
Why is this house and land soo special? I feel like I know and all at once...
Seriously most of the book was Rose and her desperate search for her magic,what is her step mother planning ?
What is this binding ?
I can’t say I left this liking Rose in the slightest really,her magic seemed all that mattered and I don’t even know why ,beyond being a witch and she’s supposed to have it...
It’s not like a shifter fearing losing their inner animal if they were to mate the wrong mate or something and yet,at first Rose is willing to suffer almost any fool she has to just to claim a magic she’s barely experienced.....
Almost her time is either, spying on her stepmother or sneaking looking for info or testing theories, Rose may have once “loved” them as boys as a child, but I have absolutely no doubt that if they weren’t the key her getting her magic she would never touched any of them....
We don’t see any really special moments or reconnection that involve old times or trying to get to know the men they today just because,no if she kisses one it because of the magic,heck when she loses her virginity to one it’s all about the magic...
And when he pushes her away right after the deed is done ,between finding out what he did to her magically and them having barely started to reconnect emotionally,she honestly didn’t seem bothered...
Jin just seemed on the side and saved for last and Gabriel seemed the one her heart longed for the most and he wasn’t even there...
No Rose’s inactions with the guys ( who we barely got to know) seemed mainly self serving ,all about her and her magic, I honestly wasn’t sure why they wanted her or vice versa,all that mattered was their usefulness in protecting and claiming her magic....
Her fiancé and “parents “, might have had dark,ugly , selfish or even evil motives for what they were doing but honestly Rose only felt better by degrees when it came to “her boys”...
I wouldn’t tell a friend to not read this but wouldn’t to read it, this is just me and my lengthy opinion but I really wanted this to be based around Rose and their love her and her love for them and honestly ? It really really wasn’t ...
Returning home after a forced 11 years absence fills Rose with joy, even if it is to fulfil an arranged marriage. It also brings back memories of her 5 childhood friends with whom she grew up and who were ultimately the reason she had to leave. They were unsparked and as such not fit company for a witch so they took her away.
Wanting to know how they are doing, she sets out to meet them. Only to discover she is fiercely attracted to not one, but all of them. Rose cant stay away even when she knows she is destined to marry a man she has no feelings for.
When she discovers a heinous plot against her the race against time and a magic wielding stepmother has started.
My take on the book:
I was actually surprised how good this was :)
Not that I had no faith in the author, but with it being a pretty short book I was afraid it would feel rushed... it wasn't :)
It was well written and as far as I could tell, there were no errors in the book.
Pacing was good, the author took the time to go into detailed descriptions at times so we could follow along effortlessly.
Character development was good. We got to know the history they shared, what happened during the time they were apart and we have an imaginary best friend who really is the best! (wish I could have one myself as cool as Philomena!!).
The relationship between them felt normal. Yes there was that attraction (they are prime male specimens after all), but starting of as reunited friends, they got to know each other again.
Since this is a Reverse Harem, yes, there is sex involved. This is by no means a slow burn RH.
I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book, courtesy of NetGalley, and I really enjoyed it! Now let's hope we don't have to wait that long for book number 2 :D
If you're looking for a fix to your RH craving, search no further and go read this one!
