This is a story of when I screwed three different customers of my travel agency.

Brady, the bull rider.
Mitch, the billionaire.
And John, a Navy SEAL.
I do like my men.
And in my line of work, I meet a lot of them.

Unfortunately, this time I screwed more than the men.
I also screwed up their luxury cruise.

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

OMG. I seriously had a wonderful time reading The Accidental Harem. J.J. Knight had me laughing out loud and turning page after page waiting to see what predicament Vivienne would get herself into next. I had so much fun reading this wonderful RomCom.

Vivienne was hysterical throughout the story. She saw what she wanted and went for it. A woman who knew her own sexuality and wasn't, in the least bit, ashamed or embarrassed by it. Well, until she comes face to face with all three of her recent

Cute stories

Accidental Harem ended at 50%. Short, hot story of Vivienne, an aspiring country music singer turned travel agent, and the clients she meets along the way. The love interests are a little glossed over but there is enough storyline to keep the unusual connection going. Great dialogues and very funny.

The second book, Single Dad on top is about a perpetual bachelor and womanizer who all of a sudden finds himself with a baby dropped at his door. He has no clue so he rushes down to the

Great story

I enjoyed this book! I don’t normally like harem books, and so I don’t usually ask for an ARC for one, yet, I enjoy JJ’s writing and so requested it. This was truly a page turner that I didn’t want to put down until I had read every word! I loved the way the story comes from each characters point of view so that you get the way each of them feel. Each one of the guys has a different background which makes the dynamic interesting. The fact that Vivienne gets trapped on the ship as it’s

This is the first book of JJ Knight that I have read and I am sure I'll be reading many more from the Author in the Future.

I Loved this Fun, Quick paced Romantic Comedy. I finished it in One Sitting. I Loved the Characters and never wanted the story to end.

I would Highly Recommend all Readers to read this great, Fun, Romantic comedy now.

Okay, I’m taking this one star back. Apparently, it gotten more interesting at 30% of the page where John kissed Vivienne Infront of the other two!!

DNF 14%

I don’t know what to say. Maybe I’m judging the woman in this book? Keeping track of how many men you had sex with (73 and ongoing) is waay too much for me. And this is the first time I read one of the men were uncut. I really want to like this, she’s really funny but I guess having sex with someone you knew less than an hour or so, isn’t one

This book was so much fun to read! I think that this is my favorite book by this author yet! So much imagination, so much passion,so much craziness and it all worked so well together! One travel agent extraordinaire ,some times sophisticated; a true actress when needed, but most of the time down to earth and just being herself. Four men , each so different from the next, yet one thing in common.... the girl. Vivienne Carter, originally from Tennessee,has a true passion for singing, Country Music ...more

OMG!! If you have never read a book by J.J. Knight you defiantly need to read this book. If you did read Single Dad on top then you will run into Dell once again!
It was a fast, fun quick paced romantic comedy. I couldn’t put it down from the minute I read the first sentence. You will have laughs along with the main character Vivienne and her harem of guys.
Vivienne is not this ordinary girl, what she sees she goes for it even if it means going after three guys. She is an aspiring country sing

The Accidental Harem by J.J. Knight

The Accidental Harem story is about Vivienne, a woman who's totally and completely confident in going after what she wants. When three men land in her lap, why should she pass them up? Brady, the bull rider, Mitch the billionaire and hunky John, the Navy Seal. All of these men cross Vivienne’s path..and she accidentally screws them…over. 

Vivienne accidentally books all three of them in the same cabin on the luxurious cruise, but when she gets to the cruise to

Sexy, hot and funny!

OK, I have to admit that at first, I had a bit of a hard time getting into the story. It might just have been that it wasn't the right time for me to read this particular book; that happens sometimes. But, after about 25% I really started enjoying it. And when I got to the part where they were all on the cruise ship? WOW – it was hot and I really started enjoying it.

The story is told in first-person point of view with most of the chapters told by Vivienne but there are severa

This is a giggle fest of a book that's also full of sexy, hot men & the moves they put on our girl Vivienne!!💘

She literally accidentally creates herself a harem. It's a fabulously funny ride 😉 Although Vivienne hid her insecurities well behind her naturally flirty & vivacious personality, things that have always bothered her still did. I loved how much more real & relatable it made her!!💟

Each of the men, Brady the Rodeo Rider, Mitch the Billionaire Businessman & John the Navy Seal, were all comp

This is only the second me time I have read a reverse harem and have definitely enjoyed it. Done in a very different way. JJ Knight has broken the fourth wall and kept me entertained. I even found myself googling things when the main character told me to!

Vivienne is a sassy and independent but at the same time has vulnerable moments that you can identify with. Each man of her accidental harem appeals to different parts of you. I enjoyed this story it was fun and flirty, I found myself enjoying

I was given this ARC as an honest read for an honest review. This was my first time with JJ Knight. She had me right from the beginning. This story flowed, was adventurous and mind blowing at times.
The story is about Vivienne the main character, who is a travel agent in Miami. She books these trips that are exclusively through her agency. First there is Brady, then there is Mitch, along comes John and last but not least is Aldopho.
Vivienne is adventurous with her sexuality. She see what she wan

This book was fantastic! It was full of hotness as well as funny back and fourth between everyone. The story line in itself was funny but worked great. Vivienne is a small town girl with the big dream to be a country singer. Full of pep and hope she books a cruise which isn’t a new thing. While on the cruise the room had be filled with four other guys, not just any four guys but the hottest and dreamiest guys that make your panties drop.

I really enjoyed this reverse harem book; the leading character was a bright, beautiful woman with a travel agent career but poor luck when it came to relationships with men.
The men she meets are all taken in by her charm, her ability to sing and her personality.
Funny, and romantic, this book had everything this reader looks for in a novel.
"Holy oysters on a half shell, I'm nearly naked in a billionaire's office."
"Well damn. My serial monogamy is in serious jeopardy."

Terrible title, good book

This book is actually very good! I thought it would be total smut and a sexy read but the story plays out that suuuuuuure she sleeps with all the dudes but the way it plays out over weeks it doesn't seem so slutty! Ha ha.

The title is terrible. Sorry. It is.

The story wraps up with all the men actually helping her love her dream but she gets to keep them in her own way.

It also ends at about 50% with another book. That one also had a silly title but the book was very go

I love this book. I truly love the character of vivienne, She is everything I am not. The only thing we have in common is the we are junky. I like that she really wants to live life to its fullest. Her dream is to be a country singer, but all her auditions don't lead her any where. She works as a travel agent and meets 4 men that come to her to book an exclusive cruise, things just go crazy from that point and vivienne goes on a world wind adventure.

Sweet and lighthearted

It's not often that you get a lead female like Vivienne, as confident in her sexuality as she is vulnerable.
This is a great poolside or lunch room read, although the sex scenes may make want to wait until later to read lol.
The bonus book is also a good story with a few laugh out loud moments. Any Mum will remember the time that their precious darling let out a belch that made everyone's ears flap, a fart that could clear out a warehouse or the horror of a poo-nami.

I just read this yesterday and I really liked it. Vivienne was awesome - she was probably my favorite character. Frankly, this book is funny, and it's hot. It does not try to be something it's not. The narrative is great, and I liked the storyline a lot. It was pretty different from the majority of RH stories I've read. It was great! My only complaint is the lack of fleshed out characters (not super deep) but like I said, it doesn't try to be something it's not (i.e. a deep thinking book). I wou ...more

Some things are so crazy you just stop and say to yourself: "actually, why not?"

And it was surprisingly good, thanks to the light, funny but vulnerable female lead that knows what she wants and ends up with everything she needs.

The introduction of the guys were nicely spaced out and genuine. Her inter voice was honest and down-to-earth and crazy (yes, she was both) so by the time all three of her guys were cracking beers together, all "best buds", I liked it too much to call faul or mind it in a

So what if a woman goes after what she likes

Love this book love Vivienne ! Others may judge but hey you know what it's a double standard guys do it all the time. So a woman goes after what she wants, lives life to the fullest. Go girl!! Judge me not before you judge your self. JJ Knight has just the right amount of heat too keep you going. Making the characters relatable & real enough w/there own faults and insecurities. Most will judge the acts but hey it's in the title so you do have a bit of

I laughed. This was a good read to enjoy the pitfalls of single girl life.
They are becoming feral- one of the great lines of the book.
I really felt that John was WOW oh WOW with how he occupied Viv's time and that they enjoyed each other's company for real.
Adolfo a little shaky until the end. Mitch the ever businessman. And Brady the go hearted rodeo king.
Some of the antics on the boat were overboard (no pun intended) but just showed that they were all willing to live life for every opportunity

3.5 Star Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review

I feel like I'm striking out with reviews today. I wanted to love this book so hard. I loved the men in this book, but I don't know, something was off with our heroine. Maybe I'm in a mood and need to re-read this book at another time, but I just didn't love it like I wanted to. I'm new to J.J. Knight. I would try another book as this one was a super quick read.

Short, sweet, sexy and kinda crazy!

Love RH stories. This one was so much fun. I love Viviene's "case in points to live by". She went from having a dream to living the dream. And what a crazy bunch of guys in her polyamourous relationship...Brady, the bull rider from Texas; Mitch, the billionaire from Miami; John, the NAVY Seal and son of a senator; and Aldolfo, the Royal hotel manager from Monte Carlo. But the dynamic works and is hot!
United Indie Book Blog
So fun and sexy! It pulled me in right away. I like the conversational style. It is fun that Vivienne can light up a room with her songs. It is interesting that these men that are so different are attracted to the same woman. When they all end up on the same cruise in the same room things get crazy fast. Vivienne works through the mix up to resolve everything. This is a fun story that I enjoyed. I read it in one setting. I couldn’t put it down.

♥️Fantasy Land  Book Reviewer♥️
I love reverse harem stories and this one is no different. Vivienne doesn't want to make a choice so she decides to have them all. Brady, Mitch, John, and Adolfo. They all have their own way and different needs. But they satisfy Vivienne just fine. This is a great shorter read, but very enjoyable. I will be reading more of J.J. Knight in the future! I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.
