SynopsisLet him who is without sin cast the first stone…  I’m the second-most hated person in Amber Springs. First place honors go to my twin, Ethan; however, hate isn’t a strong enough word to convey how people feel about him. Not that I blame anyone—some days, I hate him too. Mostly, I’m just lost and afraid, drowning in a sea of betrayal and guilt, wondering how this happened right under my nose. 

There’s no choice but to leave. To move clear across the country in a last-ditch attempt to start over. Transferring to a new school midway through senior year is hellish for most people. For me, it’s a welcome relief—until someone discovers our secret and now everyone knows. The pointing, whispering, and scathing looks follow me around again, and I’m back to square one. Except, this time, I’m not alone

Axel, Skeet, and Heath took me under their wing from the minute I arrived here. I’ve no idea why three of the hottest guys in town took any interest in me or why they continue to have my back, but I’m so grateful to have them in my corner. Because, right now, they’re the only reason I’m not following my brother into an early grave.

This is an upper YA/NA reverse harem STANDALONE contemporary romance. Due to sensitive content, sexual situations, and possible triggers, this book is recommended to readers aged 18+

Review: I am a massive fan of Siobhan Davis’s work and have been since I read Finding Kyler. When she announced this book, I was skeptical. I have never read, let alone heard of a reverse harem book. I wanted to read this book to get out of my comfort zone and open my mind to different kinds of romance novels.

Siobhan once again blew me away. This book took me on so many different emotional rides, I could barely hang on. The mystery aspect of the book was also another great piece. She always has a way to make you not know where a book is going to go.

I would say the polygamy part of the book was the hardest hurdle to over come. I think it is because I have never really thought about that kind of relationship before and also, I enjoy monogamous romance novels. That being said, the polygamy aspect was not hard to understand with these characters. They all loved each other and if it worked for them, then there is no room to judge!


Thanks for checking out my post! xx
