Publisher's Summary

My name is Freya Wilson. I am not your typical girl next door. I'm far from it.

As my mother likes to point out since I graduated high school, I should be planning my life instead of wallowing around the house in my pajamas all day. Girls my age are either preparing for college or taking advantage of the warm summer days that California provides in spades. She doesn't understand why I prefer to be stuck in my room, watching the world pass by.

But there is a reason to my melancholy that she will never know. I'm in mourning. I morn a love I can never have. A love that if anyone were to learn about its existence, I would be judged and ridiculed, branded with names too ugly to mention. Years ago, I had made the ultimate sacrifice, so no one would discover my secret. However, now my secret is being put to the test. I will need to overcome one last obstacle.

When fate brings me to live under the same roof temptation lies, I fear I might not be strong enough to hide my feelings. The moment I set foot inside it, my life takes an unexpected turn, and the vision I once had of eternal solitude seems out of reach. The chains I have weaved around me are no match for the allurement the house next door provides.

There is no running away from love, and I was a fool to think otherwise.

Contains mature themes.

Amazing

I think I wrote a review of the kindle version of this book in response to people’s reaction to the way the harem treats the protagonist, but I want to write again to reiterate that this is a fantastic book. One thing that I found missing when I started reading reverse harem was what the “real world” would think of those involved in this type of relationship (potentially because I also began reading this genre combined with paranormal). This is one of the things I love about this book: the author isn’t afraid to show fears and doubts and the effect living in society could have on those in a harem. The emotion conveyed by all the characters, as well as providing unique qualities and characteristics to each of the five brothers is something I applaud the author for.

As for the audio book, I bought it the second I saw it existed even without listening to the sample. Both narrators are fantastic, reminding me of other narrators I enjoy, such as Andi Arndt, Joe Arden, Josh Goodman, Angela Goethals, etc. Aaron Shedlock does an amazing job at providing all five brothers their own voices, and Stephanie Rose as Freya presents her as conflicted and unsure without sounding weak.

If it weren’t clear already, I highly recommend this book, both in eBook and Audible versions.

So unexpected!@

I tried to listen to this book without any pre judgmental ideas and reactions. Surprisingly I actually liked this book, considering the sensitive and the sensual subject matter and all that goes with it.
I really didn't know what to expect and can say the way this book was written, the author conveyed some emotions by Freya our heroine, and by the five brothers that shook me and kept me very interested in this story. There was some unexpected darkness that shocked me but overall I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
Very different book with very mature theme.
Aaron Shedlock did a fantastic job narrating the 5 brothers and while Stephanie Rose is new to me I thought she narrated Freya with full emotional depth. The author took a chance and I think this book deserves consideration.
