I've overcome the odds to claim my magic and the five men I'm not supposed to love. Then, just when I think we've finally found peace, our lives are turned upside down by a life-shattering threat.

If our enemies succeed, we'll be dead by tomorrow. But they've never fought Rose Hallowell before. Even I haven't discovered the limits of my powers yet. I just wish I could be

I know I say this with all of Eva’s series but I swear they get better with each book! I absolutely loved this one and loved that it didn’t end on a cliffhanger but I’m still dying to read the next one to see how it all ends! And can I just say I loved getting to meet Rose’s family from her Moms side! I loved her cousins and aunt! Can’t wait for book 4!!

It took me a while to get back to these books and I'm so ashamed of it too!

Eva Chase introduced me to reverse harem and I've been meaning to read more of the genre ever since. I've read the occasional book by another author, but I can't help but love Eva's writing most so far. No surprise that I'm going to read the fourth book of this series right after writing this review, right?


In this installment, we get back to Rose and her consorts trying to outsmart part of the witching community. E

Every Saturday I'm looking forward to the next Eva Chase book. I've been quickly catching up with her work and I'm starting to get the feeling that I'm making progress. This is the fourth complete series I'm reading. Maybe I should take a break at some point from the Chase books. But, I'm gonna determine that after the next book. Maybe there was another reason that this book didn't do what all the others so far did.

My biggest problem was with the plot and with how it didn't really give the chara

The only reason this book got less stars than the first is because apart from the fact that there's so much running around that character development suffers, most of the interactions between Rose and her men is sex. This isn't meant to be Fifty Shades of Grey is it? Because I hated that waste of paper.

Still I'm totally here for smart female main characters and all her super yummy men.

Note: I received and arc in exchange for an honest review and this doesn’t influence my opinion on it in anyway.

I love Eva Chase, she is such an amazing writer. Consort of Pain was an action-packed, fast-paced, amazingly witchy ride. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this book and I am a little surprised with myself, at how much I like the steamy action as well.

Consort of Pain pretty much picks up right where the previous book, Consort of Thorns, left off. Rose and they guys are in trouble, t

I received an advance review copy from the author.

I know the book's already out, so this review isn't exactly 'in advance', but better late than never right? So we're back with Rose and her consorts for the third installment in the witch's consorts series as they continue to search for a way to unearth the injustice occurring in witching society. Eva Chase has once again delivered a well written and planned out book that excites, engages, and entertains the reader. There was less 'action' in ter

I blew through this series.

I love the actual idea and plot outline- witches & magic exist but normal people have no clue. Only women in the witch bloodlines can make magic. After they’ve found their consort, before a certain age. There’s basically a witch government that watches over the witches. The MC finds proof that at one time, witches had more than one consort (intro to the reverse harem set up in the story).

I think it could’ve been paced a little better. It all felt so rushed, reintroduc

This is the third book of the series and it is full of action and, well, sex. Lol. What else can you expect from a witch with four consists (plus one almost consort)? The witching community has an ugly hidden sect. A sect whose members don't see a problem with trapping witches into consort matches where the consort can force the witch into doing his bidding, and can cause her pain if she doesn't. A sect that has dark secrets that can't see the light of day.

Rose Hallowell has claimed her magic and has the 5 unsparked consorts she is not supposed to have and just hopes for a peaceful life. However everything is threatened by the Assembly – can Rose and her men escape them and find the kind of allies they need to have a safe, secure and peaceful future or will they forever be fighting? Can Rose find a balance of power where she doesn’t extract so much from her consorts that they become ill?

I loved this story - lots of twists, turns, excitement and dr

The first two books were better than the third installment.

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another

This series keeps getting better! This is the best book in this series so far.

This books starts where the previous book ended - with the Witching Assembly arresting Rose and her guys.
There's not too much I can say without spoilers... What I can tell you is that I loved it, and was on the edge of my seat so-to-speak the whole book.

We see what happens with Rose and Gabe (as he's currently the only guy who isn't her consort); whether they may have some allies, and of course there are run-ins with

I love this series, it keeps me on the edge of my seat the whole time I'm reading. Book 3 starts off right where 2 left off, Rose and her consorts have been taken by the Assembly. Now Rose needs to figure out a way to escape and protect her guys at the same time. Also, she needs to figure out why they want her so bad. In this book, she reconnects with her mothers family, gets even closer with her guys, and even figures out all the secrecy to the Assembly.....well, mostly. Can she defeat them or ...more

I don't know what it is about this author but I've read 8 of her books and 7 of those only got two stars from me and yet I keep reading them. It's like all her books could be epic but all of them are missing something. So far this series is intriguing, but at the same time very boring and predictable. It's pretty much just fighting and then sex to replenish the used magic. I can't get this picture of Rose calling a time out in the middle of a battle to screw one of her guys to replenish her magi ...more

Rose, her four consorts, Kyler, Damon, Seth, and Jin, along with Gabriel (her hopefully-soon-to-be fifth consort), have been captured by The Assembly, or at least the part of the Assembly that wants to control a witch's powers. They manage to escape and go on the run. Along the way, Rose finds unexpected allies and the fight continues against The Assembly for their right to be together as witch and consorts. Full of magic and fast paced action, with a great plot and exceptional characters, loved ...more

The third installment of the Consort series picks up with great speed. Rose and her guys are on the run after escaping from the witching community and are trying to find allies to assist them. This book was my favorite of all of them so far. Rose's guys have to come together as a unit to protect her and themselves from those who want to use Rose's powers for their own gain. Along the way they develop new allies and friendships while faced with a new and even more powerful threat to not just the ...more

Wow .. Definitely Enjoyable!!
Book 3 and Eva Chase successfully continues to capture the readers attention by weaving such strong, believable, likeable and definitely some evil characters into this gripping story. I couldn't put it down!! Rose and her consorts find themselves fighting for their lives, mixed with a whole lot of crazy .... Don’t hesitate, plunge with them into a realm of magic, intrigue, betrayal, deception and sooo much danger. This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy

Man this series delves deeper and deeper and gets better and better! Be prepared to cancel your day so you can read this in one sitting. You won't want to put it down! Rose and her boys are still on the run and trying to find a solution so they can just be left alone! I was surprised at the direction the story took and the ending excites me for the next in the series!! Can. Not. Wait!!! 5 Stars isn't nearly enough!

I was gifted an ARC in return of an honest review.

The best so far in the series! Rose and her consorts are all becoming a tighter unit before our eyes. The drama and danger are amped up as the group is on the run. Is there anyone they can trust outside their own circle? Their strength, trust and love in one another is again put to the test in this awesome page turner! I couldn't put it down! Keep the excitement coming Eva!

After being arrested by the Assembly, Rose and her consorts have to escape and plan to out the faction of the Assembly after them and trapping witches in corrupt consorting. Rose has to protect her men from witching society and figure out why they are after her. And why the assembly is trapping witches; which is a twist that you won’t see coming. Can’t wait to see what happens next

Consort of Pain is the 3rd book in this series. Rose and her consorts are on the run from the assembly. All they want is to be able to live life with each other. Rose is looking for evidence against a fraction of the assembly who are using young witches magic without their consent. There is a lot of action in this book. Rose has strong magic that the assembly needs but how far will they go to have her. I'm really looking forward to the next book.

This is a fantastic culmination to this fast-paced magical series. Rose and her guys are really put through the wringer. Imprisoned, chased and attacked at every turn. They are on the run for their lives, with no help in sight. This book was so captivating and engrossing that I read non-stop until I finished. It starts out exciting and never slows down. Eva Chase knows how to tell a story that will keep you guessing until the end. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Not bad

The writing like the rest of Eva Chase's books is done very well. Wht I noticed about this book is the pace of it. Unlike the first book, this one took a long time to really get going. It didnt seem to flow as well as I'm used to with Eva's books and I was surprised that I had to put it down multiple times. I did keep going and I am glad I did. The ending was as great and it got me excited to read book 4.

I was so excited to read this book, I finished it in a day and a half. I had to find out what happened to Rose and the boys after they had been attacked by the enforcers. The author did not disappoint. Lots of magic, suspense, and action followed. We readers finally find out who all the bad guys are and why they are after Rose, an old foe comes back, and possible new allies are introduced.
I'm so glad the series is continuing, I love Rose and her boys.

Rose and her consorts are back and fighting for the right to live their lives in peace. It is an uphill battle, but they never give up and even find unexpected allies along the way. I love how the characters are all so different, but compliment each other perfectly. Together they are much more than they are separately. They are safe themselves now. But still have a long way to go to make things better for all witches and I can't wait to see how they manage it.

Once again, Rose and her guys have a crazy exciting adventure! This book is another great one by Eva and kept me on my toes the whole time. There are huge revelations and secrets revealed and new characters introduced. This is such a great series and I love the relationship between Rose and the guys.

She meets some unexpected allies along the way and is now more determined than ever to save other witching women from being controlled.

I struggled with reviewing this book. Loved books 1 and 2. I struggled through book 3. It was a bit exhausting. Overall I have given it 4 stars as it was well written, had great character development and great sexy time scenes but I had to take breaks. It was full on the whole way through without a breather. Not sure if I want to read book 4. Will wait for release and see how we go.
