This book contains some LGBT themes. When I read the first chapter of this book I thought the heroine was a fool. And, I continued thinking the heroine was a fool throughout the entire book. The whole plot revolves around a gaming tournament. This book really just centered around the heroine's best friend. I'm not sure what this was honestly. The heroine had 3 male mates but was making out with her best friend. Overall, I really disliked this. 1.5 stars. ...more

First of all, the cover is gorgeous! I absolutely love it! This story was so amazing. I was instantly drawn into the world and wanted to just stay there. There are dragons and online games. Where could one go wrong? I didn't want to come out of the world quite frankly. My only critique is that it was too short! I know there are a few other books in the series, but still. I also wish the whole dragon heritage was explained in more detail. But maybe it will in the next books.

Fifth Soul by Arizona Tape and Laura Greenwood is a slow burn reverse harem paranormal romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Susan Greenway.

I absolutely love Arizona and Laura’s books! Their books usually leave me with a smile on my face. I really enjoyed the slow burn relationship between Lola and her four mates. I can’t wait to dive into the next book in the series Fifth Round to get more of their story.

Susan did a great job on the narration. I look forward to listening to more of

I loved this. Lola was fantastic and I love her men and Rachel. There was a lot of humour within this book, I laughed out loud at parts. It moved along quickly and kept me hooked with the banter and sweet romance.

I listened to the audio version. I love Susan Greenway's voice and she did a good job portraying Lola and Rachel. Her male voices weren't as strong though. Overall, I enjoyed her narration.

I enjoyed listening to this book by Laura Greenwood and Arizona Tape! I thought Lola's antics were funny and had me giggling and Susan Greenway did a good job getting into character for the majority of the time. I think she could have improved her male voices and sometimes she got a little too whiney for me, so I couldn't give her 4 or 5 stars like I would have wanted to. I think if she continues as the narrator for Book 2 that is coming out soon in the next couple months, then she would need to ...more

Writing was fine, story was fairly meh

The writing was fine, there were no typos but there was also no drama. All the way through the book there was all this build up to no one accepting their mating, but nothing came of it. They said that covering her mating mark would affect her and it never did. There were no antagonists, and little character development, all of which made the plot really dry

Lola knows that she has three mates that are fated to her. Her friend does not because she is an outcast because she was a white dragon without clear heritage. There are three different types of dragon shifters, fire, water, and earth. Lola is a fire dragon shifter and has a mark that is only one quarter of a picture waiting for her mates to complete the picture. How could she be mated when her best friend , Rachel, can not. She vows to stay single and has her mark covered with a tattoo. She goe ...more

Lola is a fire dragon who has a mate mark and is aware that she is destined to find her 3 fated mates. Her friend Rachel is an outcast, a white dragon. Lola won’t mate when Rachel cannot! Torn between loyalty to her best friend and to the pressing need to seek her mates, she chooses to ignore that search for her mates and instead, as an avid gamer, heads to a gaming tournament for distraction. She had hidden her mating mark with a tattoo, yet it did not let her ignore the three fellow gamer guys ...more

This book received a 1 star because I stopped reading it around chapter 12
The plot of this was.... okay sounding. Not ground breaking or even that different but just okay. The execution not so good.
The main character Lola seems to have a good heart at the start of the story. She feels bad that her friend Rachel won't ever find love or be able to have babies. That kind of selfless, throw myself on the blade kind of attitude that makes her sound noble is quick to vanish. Lola becomes a self center
A light and short book. The “fated mates” thing acts as a crutch to have Lola and Rachel move in with the guys, saving up on actual relationship building – which does happen later, but I admit it doesn’t feel like enough. Besides Rachel, none of Lola’s interactions with her mates feel anywhere near romantic enough to justify an eternal bond. Fingers crossed the next book improves on this.

The narrator’s delivery was distractingly flat. There was no attempt to give any of the characters a distinct
This is a cute, short poly listen. It does include LGBT themes, which I wasn't aware of, but was pleasantly surprised! Here's my reasoning for the 3-star. I DID like it...but...the story follows a VERY socially awkward character. Usually I don't mind that, because I am as well...but this was a bit over the top. It is also very short and the plot seems rushed. Since these are so short, I love dragon shifters, and I love the premise, I am going to listen on hoping the plot becomes a bit more devel ...more

Lola is a gamer who has given up on her heritage because in her heart she's always known she could never give up her BFF Rachel for a bunch of males. But when she goes to the tavern Dragon Soul for a tournament, her birth tattoo won't let her deny the three fellow gamer guys that smell absolutely delicious. While they were growing up, Rachel was too 'different' from the other fire dragons to be considered mate material. But Nature will show, this mating bond isn't going to be the usual foursome ...more

Well this was a great book to read but I was a bit confused as to whether this was book one or two. The cover shows book 2 but on other sites it is listed as one. Other than that, this book was amazing and emotional. The story is deep and you feel connected to the main character. Lola does not want to mated due to her friend Rachel being shunned. However, this relationship quickly deepens and new feelings are finally brought out. The same time Lola also stumbles upon her three mates and is havin ...more

A interesting dynamic. A female with mixed gender mates, in this case 3 males and another female. I've wondered about this dynamic, and wondered why there are so many harem books out there that are all one female and multiple males in "fated" mates, and thought it would be an interesting dynamic if one or more of the "fated" mates were the same gender as the MC. In this instance the mated female is gay, so that she has no desire for the other males in the bond. I know that a lot of the books hav ...more

This audiobook was excellent. It was so much fun and so sweet. It's not the normal kind of book that I would like in some ways, but I loved it! I guess you could consider this a reverse harem type of book. Usually those books are full of crazy sex scenes. But this one was different and it was kind of refreshing. I go back and forth in my feelings about Lola though. Sometimes I loved her and sometimes I found her a little on the annoying side. But the story is fabulous and so funny! I found mysel ...more

The British accent that Susan Greenway used for the the characters really tickled me and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I absolutely loved this story, from the characters to the setting to the storyline itself. The world they inhabit is intriguing, and although we didn't get too deep into it I am hooked. I love that it's set around gaming, and although this is quite a big part of the story it's not off-putting if you don't like gaming. My biggest disappointment is that it was over too quickly!

This is a new to me author and this book was recommended to me so I took a chance and grabbed it up and I am pleased that I did. Now when I think of PNR and at the very least Reverse Harem I go to more of a erotic and hot, steamy read but this is not that at all. This is a fun, clean book about dragon shifters who are set to mate 1 female to 3 males except for Lola who find out she has a 4th. If you want a fun short light read this is perfect and yes I do recommend this book.

This was a really good start to a new series! Lola is a fire dragon shifter and is destined to have three mates. She is fiercely loyal to her best friend Rachel and refuses to mate so she doesn’t leave her best friend alone and isolated. Once Lola meets her mates, Hector, Martin, and Todd, the undeniable chemistry between them changes everything. I really enjoyed Lola and Rachel’s personalities and how they were so different from each other. I haven’t read many dragon shifter books or gamer book ...more

The story was interesting and well written. The characters were beautifully developed and had great personalities. The one thing I wasn’t crazy about was that it seemed more female with female relationship than with the males. We didn’t get to learn as much about them as I would have liked. Otherwise, it was a great story and very interesting to read.

Fifth Soul by Laura Greenwood and Arizona Tape is a story about a dragoness named Lola who tries to avoid getting caught up in a multiple dragon. This story has a few unexpected twists that make it lots of fun to read. Its sweet without being sappy. After lots of compromise Lola ends up with an unusual but perfect for her happy ever after ending. This is a fun, light read that I really enjoyed. Fifth Soul is a sweet multiple dragon mate story.

Gamer dragons, and fated mates with a twist. It’s an interesting premise, but the book falls short. There’s some humor, and the characters are sweet, but the entire book is them meeting and easily coming together. That’s it. There’s no conflict, no obstacles to overcome, no other plot lines to add interest. If you just want an easy-to-read HEA, this might be a great fit.

I listened to the audiobook version of this book.

Going into this shorter listen, I didnt really know what I was getting into as the universe is new to me. I thought this was a fun listen. It moved pretty quickly and Lola was pretty quirky. There is some humor in this sweet paranormal romance. I like the style and the characters were interesting (from the little we know about them), I would happily read more from this universe.

The narrator gave an excellent performance!
This is the first RH story in the Twin Souls universe. I first read this story in the Realms& Rebels anthology. I like Lola. She is is willing to fight for what she wants, and doesn’t want to have to rely on fate. She wants to make her own choices and life, even to go so far as to try to cover her mating mark. She is torn between 3 gamers and her best friend. It is a great story.

This story was not my cup of tea because of the FF and the heroine was more butch in personality. The first 10 chapters were about not wanting mates and all about being with her girlfriend. Plus a whole bunch of video game details I didn't need. The narrator had a weird type of accent and I didn't care for the voices. It is probably a better fit for the YA crowd.

I loved everything about this book and just couldn't put it down, fantastically written with stunning and captivating characters, Multi layers of sub plots that are easily followed and wonderful action with romance. A must read for so many reasons. I am sure you will love these books as much as I did. ...more

This was an interesting story. I enjoyed reading about Lola and her mates. Though Lola was a bit too possessive for my tastes and I felt like the romances could use more development.

This book is kinda cute. There is not a lot of character development and Lola is the only one we get to know. This is the first in a series but it ends on a happy for now so you don’t feel it necessary to buy the next one. The writing is as good as I have come to expect from these two authors.

hot book. Lola swore, that she will never mate becouse her friend can´t mate.
What she never imagined is that she will recived more than she bargained.
In the game tournament she not only find her three hot mates, bud she discovered, that her best friend is her mate too. What a scandal??? Or not??

This story was just so beautiful that it warmed my heart. Lolo going from refusing to have any mate to have more than any other dragon. She get not only 4 magnifique mates but also unique connection to each of them. Each of them so different, but even more lovable because of that. The world, the plot and characters are really working well together. It was lovely read.
