Signs of Cupidity: A Fantasy Reverse Harem Story

Availability: Ready to download

You'd think that basically being in charge of love would be an epic job, right? Wrong. Sure, I can blow some Lust into people's faces and watch the show, but I can't actually participate. It gets old, trust me. Same goes for love. I can pass it out like sugar-free lollipops at a dentist's office, but I can't get any love for myself. It totally sucks.

I can pass it out like sugar-free lollipops at a dentist's office, but I can't get any love for myself. It totally sucks. I used to consider myself a hopeless romantic, so why wouldn't I choose to become a cupid? Sounds like a good idea, right? Wrong again. They don't call us stupid cupids for nothing. I'm stuck in this never-ending afterlife where I'm invisible, lonely, and bitter as hell. And yeah, I'm probably responsible for some terrible matchmaking out there. Sorry, not sorry. All my bad cupid'ing might be why I was exiled from the human realm. You can only do so much before the cupid bosses get all huffy. Unfortunately, my bitterness carried over into the new realm, and then I attacked a fae prince with Love Arrows. Accidentally. Okay, not accidentally. But hey, he deserved it. What I didn't expect was for him to retaliate and hit my ass with some crazy magic mojo strong enough to push me into the physical realm. Whoa. That's right. This cupid just got a real body. And you know what that means...Now, it's my turn to get some. Love, I mean. Get your head out of the gutter. Wink, wink bitches. Author's Note: This is a medium-burn reverse harem story. It includes explicit language and sexual situations. Intended for audiences 18 years and older. As this is a series, there will be a cliffhanger.

    Buddy read with Reverse Harem Revolution. This was a lot of fun to read! The heroine is a cupid who gets reassigned to the fae realm after "poor job performance" and ends up on an island with 3 lumberjack fae mancats. I love reverse harems that are silly and over the top and this totally fits the bill. There is a lot of humor. The romance is slow burn. Nothing relationship or sexual happens. Just flirting, but the guys are fun too. One is your typical grumpy caveman type, one is the flirty rakish Buddy read with Reverse Harem Revolution. This was a lot of fun to read!

This is the author's first book, I believe, and she did a great job! There is a good premise and plot with loads of potential. I felt there were sections where not much really happened, and the main action happened at the end, but the writing and overall quality was a win. I'll be reading the next one for sure. Edit: There are similarities to Four Psychos, but I didn't mind whatsoever.

    So funny, cute, and I ate it all up! You'd think being a cupid would be all kind of fun. Shooting people with arrows all freaking day would ease the anger from terrible break ups - right? However, the no touching, eating, and the talking to your only friend (yourself) does take the fun out of that job. It sounds terrible and I wouldn't like that job either.

Emelle has had enough of people's shit. She gets in trouble while roaming the human world and is sent to fae world. There she thinks she has finally made it. Has she finally found the perfect couple? Nope, everything goes wrong. She gets so freaking mad that she just continually shoots arrows at this guy, who happens to be a prince. He doesn't take it too kindly because he somehow knows he's getting hit with something. Fast forward a couple of seconds, and she's falling after getting hit by his magic. Eventually she lands-ish in pretty bad shape. Luckily for her, she has three gorgeous men to sort of take her. However, they actually keep her as prisoner because they don't trust the demon that fell from the sky. Throughout her stay, she eventually worms her way into their hearts. There's so much sexual tension in this book between this group of people. I wanted something to happen.. and what I got was a kiss. A FREAKING KISS. I wanted more and I demand more.. so maybe I will get that in the next book?? Maybe. Other than that, I love Emelle. She's hilarious. Then there's Not-First, Second, and Third and they were pretty great too. After the ending, I have a couple of questions that I hope will be answered in book 2.

    Cupid : 1 My expectations : 0 I really wanted to give this 5 stars but the similarities between two well known RH are just too obvious and numerous to overlook. Despite that I absolutely freaking loved it It's gets the Gaby Feel Good RH of the year award Maybe because my expectations were low and I knew it was gonna be a rip-off it didn't bother me. This is one that will make you laugh, just the right burn, NOT YA (hooray) doesn't require much thought and it's on KU!

    Okay, if you like C.M. Owen's...errr...I mean Kristy Cunning's The Dark Side series (Four Psychos, Three Trials, Two Kingdoms), then you will probably like Kennedy's Heart Hassle series. The thing is though, you will probably pick up on a lot of similarities too. The similarities were enough that at times I wondered if Kennedy straight up stole some pages out of Cunning's book, but Kennedy delivered an intriguing enough of a story that I actually didn't care if she did.

The similarities were enough that at times I wondered if Kennedy straight up stole some pages out of Cunning's book, but Kennedy delivered an intriguing enough of a story that I actually didn't care if she did. The H is ridiculous and annoying, but she made me laugh. Rather than wishing her death, which I normally do with weak and annoying female leads, I actually found myself rooting for her. She is a klutz and absurd, but I couldn't find myself hating her for that. This series is a reverse harem series (my new addiction), and I found myself very intrigued by each of the guys that are the potential harem. As with most RH series, we are given the "nice" one, the "carefree" one, and the oh so "alpha male tortured soul" one. With that being said though, I think we might also get a "mysterious" one too. I'm not too sure where the author is planning on taking this series, but I like what she's cooking up so far. I wouldn't call this super slow burn, because we get some super charged moments, but it's no insta-love either (THANK GOD); there are no sexy times in the book. If you are looking to get your rocks off by reading this book...you are going to be sorely disappointed. I had a lot of fun while reading this, and I'm looking forward to the next in the series (whenever the hell that may be).

    Emelle is a discontented cupid. She thought spreading love through the world would be romantic and fun, but quickly got jaded when confronted with a bunch of womanizers, cheaters, etc. She's lost her faith. Add in that she exists in the Veil where no one can see her, talk to her, or feel her, and she is a bit depressed. She gets transferred from the human realm to the Fae realm where a marriage is going to take place between the Prince and Princess. She is reinvigorated when it appears that true Emelle is a discontented cupid.

She is reinvigorated when it appears that true love could actually occur between the two of them, but then she finds out that the Prince is a womanizer and cares nothing for his sweet princess. Emelle gets a little angry and (view spoiler)[ shoots him full of love arrows. He retaliates with a blast of raw magic that turns Emelle corporeal. She escapes the palace and falls onto an island where three good-looking genfins have been banished. At first, they treat her like a prisoner but eventually form a friendship and agree to help her avoid the Prince who is still hunting her. (hide spoiler)] I enjoyed this book! I liked Emelle - she's funny, fun, quirky, and sassy. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I even liked it when she was whiny - it was funny at the time. The premise is different too, and I even liked the slow burn of it. I think I might have been annoyed if she just slept with everyone in sight when she became corporeal. Clearly, these genfin guys are her harem, but so far I only think Evert and Sylred are on board. Ronak seems to be inaccessible still. I'm looking forward to seeing how things progress in the next book.

The descriptions of this world (or should I say worlds?) were so well done that I could easily picture it in my mind. The ending left me wanting more. If this author publishes more books, I'll be reading them for sure.

    Al *the semi serial series skipper*

    I am pleasantly surprised by this book. A couple of reviews I read said it was similar to Four Psychos but I didn't see it. Yes,she was invincible like Paca and she had a fun personality but IMO that's where it all ends. RH on a whole is a hit or miss,you have to be convincing pairing up 3-6 guys with one girl and I felt this book really sold on that. I thought I was going to find it passable but I enjoyed it. Can't wait to read the next one.

I found myself smiling at several scenes and of course if I had to choose a favorite of the guys it would be Evert. He's just so funny and a huge flirt with Emelle. Hopefully we get some more action in the second book.

    This was a surprisingly enjoyable read! All of the reviews point out similarities between two reasonably big hitters in the RH world, the Curse the Gods series (many people's gateway drug to RH) and the Four Psychos series. And they'd be right. Emelle has the clumsy, humourous attitude of Willa, the with the non-corporal, desperate for touch/interaction of Paca, as well as Willa's rating of the men by numbers and Paca's constant changung favourites.

However, for me this didn't feel like a rip off of those books, as the writer may have used similar characteristics (intentional or not, I'm not sure) but she did her own thing with it on the whole. Putting that aside, this was a fun, light read, with a MC who was likeable in her vulnerability and naiveity and the three men who were all characters in their own right. There was some good build.uo.on tension and no insta-love! I really liked the way the relationships were forming and the tension was done just right. This also made my laugh aloud many times, which was nice! Overall, this doesn't have the emotional depth of say the Redemption Saga, but it's entertaining, the whole cupid thing is quite original and the romance is done just right for my tastes, so I would definitely recommend RH fans who have exhausted a lot of the genre give this a go if they haven't already!

    Okkkk soo there were some similarities to a um certain other book but at the same time many differences plus I mean in PNR books (RH or not) there are always going to be similarities sadly. But Emelle was annoying and craaaaaazy weak...but guess what? That suited the story fine. I mean she has no memory of being alive so going from being a ghost to alive should come with some downsides, like quickly tiring out and untrained muscles...oh and the constant blurting stuff out and rambling or constan Okkkk soo there were some similarities to a um certain other book but at the same time many differences plus I mean in PNR books (RH or not) there are always going to be similarities sadly.

Because it makes sense. She's always been a social creature but forced to suffer alone with no one to touch, see her, smell, taste, talk to etc etc, that takes its tole on a psyche after so many decades. But she had me dying laughing in both books and I can't wait for the third. The guys were the typical RH males so nothing really special other than well I like them lol.

    Close, but no cigar. I felt like this was honestly just so similar to Curse of the Gods that it was off putting. Also, I wasn't really a fan of the main character's inner monologue. It got boring and repetitive over time. However, if I hadn't read the other series first, I would perhaps be intrigued by this.

    This is actually one of my FAVORITE RH's out there. It's in my TOP 5 list of worthy RH seriesesses (that's not a word, I know). TBH, I had my popcorn ready for Lady Soora and Prince Elphar's castle drama. I ate that up like it was candy. If we could please have a book written about them, Raven. Thanks in advance. XO I was under the belief that Emelle would be Willa (Curse of the Gods) stupid but she wasn't. I also saw little relation between her and Paca (Four Psychos), Paca was much funnier.

EMELLE WAS HERSELF- and I loved her. I do think the guys could use improvement, however. If I am being honest. Starting with Ronak. I loved all of their names. I would like to see a decline in the use of the first three letters S-Y-L in harem men's names as my brain instantly fixates on SYLVIA. Evert is now my favorite harem men name, coming in third place. The first place goes to Aros, second to Siret. You can see I have a preference. ;) This book was turn after turn of events in which I found mainly interesting. I was always excited to see what would happen next. Loved the humor. Loved Emelle. Loved the fact that she has pink hair- I want pink hair. Ugh. Job won't let me. I am excited for book 2.

To be honest I had no expectations at all, so this was a very nice surprise. I finished both books in ONE day, I couldn't put them down, you just really want to know what happens and you get really attached to the main character. The autor wrote this in a way that I felt like I was living everything through her. Its not perfect, I've read many books like this one, but this one has something special, I laughed out loud many times, it made me feel all kinds of emotions. Its funny, HOT hot hot, not what you expect, and a little weird but good weird, it mixed a lot of paranormal themes, from faeries, angels and humans. 5 letters: EVERT

    This was a book that was a recommendation for readers who like Alanea Alder or Shelly Laurenston. It was cute and I'm interested to see where the story will go. But, I'm also not happy that I've started reading the book, liking the series so far, and the third book isn't available and ready for me to dive into once I finish the second book.

This particular Cupid has beautiful red feathered wings, long pink hair, and a pretty silver dress. She's also lost her love for her job. It's a painful job.

And s "When I died, I was this innocent, naive, hopelessly romantic girl." This one sentence explains how ML became a Cupid. Yes, the arrow-wielding, love-bringing servant of Eros. This particular Cupid has beautiful red feathered wings, long pink hair, and a pretty silver dress. She's also lost her love for her job. It's a painful job. No one can see her so obviously she can't be touched or talked to. She has to watch others find and lose love without ever experiencing it herself. She's lonely. And she' not a very good Cupid, so she's removed from the human realm and reassigned to the fae. When she loses her temper and attacks the fae prince, he hits her with magic that turns her into a solid being. A being that he is after. Barely escaping ML ends up on an island with three exiled men. Huge, handsome, gloriously sexy men. Men who believe she is the enemy. Signs of Cupidity is a cute, fantasy RH. Several of the basic details seem 'borrowed' from The Dark Side but it does find it's way and become more original as it progresses. ML is funny. She earned the story an extra star for the humor she added. Her internal running monologue, her challenges in the physical world, and her lack of a filter when speaking to real people made her an entertaining lead for me. The men didn't impress me at the beginning but they are starting to grow on me. Ronak (Strength), Sylred (Tune), and Evert (Stitches) Ronak plays the role of the suspicious leader. He's abrasive, hateful, and mean but he has a few redeeming moments. Sylred is the peacemaker and the nice one. He's a bit weak for my tastes. Evert is the over the top flirt with regular sexual innuendos. Ronak and Evert have major tension between them stemming from the reason the men are in exile awaiting their trials. I'm not sure why this is called medium burn. There is no relationship established in this first book. Sexual innuendos, teasing, and taunting but rules are established from the beginning so there is no possibility of a relationship other than co-existing and friendship. Sexual tension exists but there are reasons it's not acted on and other than protective concern and a general fondness for her the guys didn't seem much attached to ML. They were single-minded on their goals. Sure, I know where it's going to go but no steps were taken in this first book. Honestly, I am going to need to see so much more of a connection develop before I believe in or support ML with these guys. Their behavior, their backstory, and their covey ambitions have not painted them as the best guys for her. And poor ML is so starved for her own love, she won't be selective enough or demanding enough of any guys. I was more intrigued by the brief encounter she had on the other island. Hopefully, the next book will change my mind on this covey/future harem. I do look forward to the next book. I felt by the end, Raven Kennedy had found her own voice. I am eager to see what she does with it and where the story goes next.

I loved this book, it was SO AMAZING AHHH! The premise is so unique, seriously. When hopeless romantic ML died, she chose to work as a cupid in the veil of afterlife as a sort of ghost, inspiring flirting, love, and sex. Lots of sex. Her REAL job was to make people fall in love, and STAY IN LOVE. She would create the most lusty love stories of epic proportions. ML loved love, so it was a real bummer when she realized how awful people treat love. For the majority of the human race, love is just a game. After DECADES of dealing with onslaught after onslaught of failed pairings due to lying, cheating, and all the other problems couples face that ultimately make people fall out of love, ML grew to resent working as a cupid. LOVE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A SACRED THING. She resented the fact that it was her job to encourage all of these people into happy love-filled relationships when she felt that they didn't deserve it. I mean, does a person really deserve love if they're just picking up chick after chick in the bar every night with cheesy pickup lines? Does a person really deserve love if they're unfaithful? No way. Nuh uh. She also resented the fact that she was just a bystander, that she could never speak with another person, or feel something...anything, or even eat food. FOOD DAMMIT. Also, orgasms seem pretty neat. She was a spector who hungered for affection - and probably cake - and she was a little more than miffed. She basically goes rogue with cupidity. I mean, fuck all these people, amirite?! Who the hell were they that they deserved an epic love? So she y'know, just lusts everyone up at random and shoots people with the arrow of love just to do it. I mean, she was the ultimate love-scorned troll, making these poor humans break out into random orgies and inspiring random love JUST. BECAUSE. SHE. CAN. I mean honestly, I loved that. I would totally do that. I already hate humanity, I bet you I'd make a great cupid-gone-evil. Honestly it was really freaky just how much of what she said and did would be something I would say/do. I'm prime cupid material, folks. All of a sudden she goes POOF! Apparently she's been a bad girl and has been pulled from the moral realm into a cupid waiting room where it was probably likely that she'd finally get reprimanded and demoted, or worse, stripped of her cupid duties to fade away into nothingness. OR EVEN WORSE, sent to the Troll Realm where she'd have to watch trolls mate while laying steamy semen-smothered eggs. UM, HELL NO. Apparently, she's a pretty decent cupid, which is pretty sad for all the others. Somehow, with the cupid hq under new management, she's gotten a promotion into the Fae Realm on one condition: Do not fuck up or you WILL GO POOF INTO THE VOID. Okay then. (view spoiler)[THE FAE REALM IS AMAZING! Oh man, do I love the everloving shit out of the fae realm. There are all these floating islands ranging in size, and the sun never sets, it just rotates around between twilight and sunshine. Plus, there are all kinds of things on the islands. Some have forests, some have villages, others hold the royal fae court, there's the castle, pubs, theatres, waterfalls, gardens, you name it. There are all kinds of different breeds of fae, and all kinds of other creatures in the fae realm, not just the fae. And when they weren't having sex - lots of sex, they were brawling. I mean, ENDLESS SEX AND BRAWLING. That's my kind of realm. Dun dun dunnn, a royal wedding appears. What better way to break out into the fae realm as a cupid, than to be responsible for the most celebrated wedding in all of the realm? So she hones in on this couple, and it doesn't look like they need much help from her. THE LUST IS JUST DRIPPING OFF OF THEM. She bounces around on their bed with them while they have passionate sex and pats herself on the back as a job well done. I mean, this couldn't be easier. HOWEVER. The Prince is a swine. After finding him with another woman, ML starts to trail him while screaming profanities because HE HAS BEDDED 15 WOMEN IN 2 WEEKS, right before his wedding. If he's already straying, there is no way in hell that this is going to end in a happy marriage. A week after his wedding, the sweet Princess finds him with one of his harlots and practically wilts before MLs eyes. This wasn't supposed to happen!! She hates this guy with a ferocity. This guy represents everything that has ruined love, everything that has ruined her. She loosed arrow after arrow into this guy, unrelenting as her quiver refilled over and over. I mean, this dude is getting hit so hard he's having seizures, and people are freaking the fuck out. That is, until he turns and blasts her with his fancy-pants high fae magic and pulls her from the Veil into the physical realm. She falls to the ground hard, and suddenly, she has a solid body and people CAN SEE HER. For the first time in almost 60 years, she has a solid form. Annnnnd, she doesn't know how to use it for shit. Guards come after her, I mean she did attack the Prince, and she tumbles down stairs while trying to run, ultimately crashing out of a huge pane-glass window off the edge of the island and fell, and fell, and fell. Well shit. Luckily there was an island not too far below. She tries to use her wings but never had to before, so she basically just falls, when one of her wings is pierced by an arrow, and she smashes down through trees with a hard thud into the ground. I mean, this is definitely not ideal. From out of the forest stalk the three MOST GORGEOUS GUYS she has ever seen, but they think she's an enemy sent to attack them, and they make her their prisoner. I mean, these dudes are half man half lion (I think?!) and sexy as hell. One is a real jerk, one is oh so sweet, and the other is super flirty. This is where we get into the meat of the story so I'm going to be vague, but she ends up spending quite a bit of time here. (hide spoiler)] The strong personalities and character flaws really made me appreciate this book. They were fleshed out as REAL PEOPLE, with real issues and real quirks. IT SPEAKS TO ME. I ALSO PROCESS MY THOUGHTS BY TALKING ALOUD LIKE A DAMN FREAK. I ALSO LOVE FOOD AND HATE RUNNING, RUNNING IS EVIL. I ALSO CONSTANTLY LIE TO MYSELF EVEN THOUGH THERE IS VIRTUALLY NO POINT IN DOING SO. Their personalities made me love them more, and I could relate to ML a ton. If you enjoy Reverse Harems this is definitely a worthy read, and the writing style is delightfully delicious.

    I legitimately enjoyed this book and smiled almost all the way through it. That said, I had to take a star off this rating because I can’t really avoid talking about the super obvious similarities between this and The Dark Side series (book 1: Four Psychos), which I loved also: • The MC is incorporeal and cannot interact with anything or anyone—leading to loneliness, horniness, and hilarious internal (and external) dialogue • The MC numbers the men in her harem before she learns their names and c I legitimately enjoyed this book and smiled almost all the way through it. That said, I had to take a star off this rating because I can’t really avoid talking about the super obvious similarities between this and The Dark Side series (book 1: Four Psychos), which I loved also: • The MC is incorporeal and cannot interact with anything or anyone—leading to loneliness, horniness, and hilarious internal (and external) dialogue • The MC numbers the men in her harem before she learns their names and changes the ranking to reflect whom her current favorite is • The men think that their enemy sent the MC to destroy/weaken them before their super mysterious Challenge™, leading to harsh treatment from the men and hurt feelings on the part of the MC The main difference between the characters in these books is that, in Four Psychos, the MC depends on her men for her corporeality and she cannot have any men other than them, though they can have other women. Or so we thought. I was all set to argue that, yeah, the other similarities are obvious but the relationship dynamics are completely different because of the MC’s lack of dependency in that sense in this book, and then we learn at the end that she is in fact dependent on her men in pretty much the same way. So that was a bit of a bummer. This really is Four Psychos with less psychosis and apocalypses and more fae and cupids. That said, I really did enjoy this. I just could not stop smiling at the MC, particularly her brief fascination with the king’s knees. It makes sense that she would fixate on odd things after getting a body for the first time, but this took place while she was still incorporeal, so it kind of went to show that she’s an odd duck in either form. Sometimes authors go too far when they try to make quirky characters, but I thought the author did a good job here. Aside from the above listed similarities to another series, my only other major complaint is that it is briefly mentioned when the MC meets the men that one hates the other, but then their interactions seem fairly tame with just some bickering here and there, so I completely forgot that they were supposed to hate each other until it suddenly becomes a big issue 67% of the way into the book. If it was going to be a fairly major plot point, then the author should have done a better job of continuously showing that tension as actual hatred. I also had a few nitpicky complaints. For example, the beginning of the book (2% in) describes the MC as sitting at a bar and then goes on to explain that she can’t interact with the physical world at all. This was confusing, and the author didn’t clarify that the MC wasn’t really sitting until 7% into the book. Also, the author briefly perpetuated the ideas that the awkward friend is always the better choice than the “cool” guy and that the guys in the “friend zone” are always “nice” guys. The cool guy in question seemed like a douche, but it still bugged me that the MC assumed that the friend was a better choice simply because he was awkward. He could easily have been an awkward douche. I hate harems in which additional men join after the harem is formed because I think the relationships become unbalanced then, so I’m going to be pissed if the MC ends up adding the pretty though malnourished cave guy to her harem at some point. Still, I’ll be downloading the sequel immediately!

    I cannot not express how much I love this book! This book had me hooked from the first chapter. I downloaded it because it had a different story line than most of the other paranormal books out there. I’ve never read a booked based on Cupid’s, but this one was AMAZING. It’s just the right mix of laugh out loud moments, sexy times, sweet moments, and danger. Emelle Emelle is the clumsy (but still bad ass) witty heroine that also suffers from extreme word vomit :) I loved her and her rambles so I cannot not express how much I love this book!

She always had a witty comeback to Everts constant teasing and endlessly made fun of Ronak. I liked that she wasn’t just some perfect all powerful heroine that most are in books. She had LOTS of clumsy moments. She was quirky and perfect in her own way. At first I thought the guys were assholes for treating her like that, but they grew on me. Evert and his flirty teasing, Sylred and his kind personality (but not so innocent ;) and then of course Ronak and his broody assholeness. They each have their own distinctive personalities which is sometimes hard to show in reverse harems since there are so many hot guys ;)

    I think the reverse harem genre is plagued by the same virus that hit the dystopian a while back. This virus - let’s call it copypastum nonoriginalus plagerismus - usually manifests when a successful series or two appear in a genre, bringing recognition and sales to the author. Once the virus hits, books running with the same idea or theme sprout like mushrooms after a rain, announcing the near future demise of the genre by over-saturation.

This book’s skeleton is made of bones stolen mainly from Kristy Cunning’s The Dark Side Series and some left phalange from Jane Washington’s Curse of the Gods. And it’s done so blatantly and in your face that it bothers the reader to the bone. Pun intended. And it trully is a shame as the author does not lack imagination or writing power - which makes the theft even more annoing. This book’ s skeleton was unoriginal. But it’s flesh was ritch and also funny and fun and captivating. I will continue with the series in hopes of a more original continuation of the story. However, I refuse to give this book a good rating due to plagerism issues.

    Firstly, I loved this book (as you can see by the five stars). There’s loads of humour on every page and, while there isn’t a lot of romance in this book (unlike the second) it really builds up the tension perfectly. The book and FMC were really reminiscent of the Dark Sides series by Kristy Cunningham, but not enough to make it feel like a copy. Dark Sides is my favourite RH (although Curse of the Gods is a close second) and I loved the similarities in the personality and situation of the FMC.

Dark Sides is my favourite RH (although Curse of the Gods is a close second) and I loved the similarities in the personality and situation of the FMC. However, unlike Dark Sides, this book takes a completely different turn within its plot. While the first book is slow with its plot, it speeds up dramatically in the second of the series. Fantasy RH is definitely my favourite genre, but most authors don’t do it well (they always forget the world-build properly!), Raven Kennedy is not one of those authors. This is definitely one of my favourites series!

    5 Stars Overall Rating ★★★★★ Plot ★★★★★ Humor ★★★★★ Characters & Character Development ★★★★★ Narration ★★★★★ Story: Characters - Emelle, Sylred, Evert, Ronak... It's very rare that I give any book 5 stars. I can't say there's anything that I did not enjoy about this book. I felt like the characters were original and believable. I enjoyed the plot and the dialogue between the characters. I enjoyed the flirty moments between the characters. This book was hilarious.

I enjoyed the plot and the dialogue between the characters. I enjoyed the flirty moments between the characters. This book was hilarious. Some say it reminds them of Curse of the Gods but aside from a life force bond, that's really all that was similar to me. I also found a similarity with The Dark Side because Emelle had to learn how to be in the physical world. That was extremely interesting to see because you don't know what all these feelings are since you've never been able to feel anything. I really can't wait to see what happens next. This was overall just a fun book to read. If you love to laugh and you love Reverse Harem, definitely read this one. Even though there was no sex in this book, it had everything that I needed. This book set the foundation and I hope there will be sex in the next book. Narration: Melissa Schwairy - I absolutely loved this narrator. I cannot wait to see what she narrates next and I can't wait to hear the 2nd book of this series.

    What happens when cupid gets angry? ML or Emelle is spunky and has no filter especially after just hearing herself talk for decades. So when she is hit with fae magic and tumbles onto an island inhabited by three imprisoned male fae, she goes into sensory overload. The book is filled with funny banter, sexual tension and i especially love Emelle's inner dialogue which is hilarious.

    This series is a mix between Curse of the gods series by Jane Washington & jaymine eve and the dark side book series by Kristy Cunning. It's like Emelle has Willas personality but they are in a more similar world as the dark side 😄 i enjoyed reading it, and i love these MC that makes me laugh out loud 24/7
