What a brilliant start to this Reverse Harem rockstar series. I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now and had high hopes once I started reading. And I definitely wasn’t disappointed.
Kat is our heroine, who is employed to go on tour with disgraced boy and Royal Element to make a documentary to improve their reputation. Adam, Leon, Seth, Conor and Tarek are our heroes and they all have one thing in common...Kat.
There’s intense chemistry (between the guys too!), a storyline that

I had not expected to find myself in shock of characters and twist that was in The book. I started reading it with a thought - it will be another nice and Easy RH with lots of THAT kind of action
But... I got a story with real characters, intriguing female lead and plot that was not oberused in those kind of books.
I will read book 2 for sure as this one was a Great debute of The author!

This book was on the shorter end but I didn’t mind, seeing as there are 4 more books in the series. The storyline was interesting. Kat is a filmmaker and she’s hired by the record label to travel for 2 months with a boy band to film a documentary of behind the scenes footage. Two of the members of the band had a sex tape of them with 2 women, a “foursome,” leaked to the public, so now they are on a strict no girls, no sex, curfew, no shenanigans order by their label. Kat knew this about them and ...more

Rockstar Romance Fix

I absolutely love Rockstar Romance and when I find them within the RH genre I need to read it. I have been postponing reading this for a while, but when I heard the series was close to being finished, I wanted to start it asap. I was not disappointed at all, this book was amazing and I can already predict that this series will be binged within the next couple of days.

Different and good

A lot of people said this book was like Groupie but I don’t see it besides it being about a band. I’m excited to see how the series progresses.

This is my 1st read and review for this author and wow what a way to get to know this authors work, this is my absolute favourite genre and this is an amazing story. Kat is a photographer she’s been hired to go on tour with a band to shoot a documentary on them, she’s being paid a lot of money which obviously helps but she is very excited to go on tour with this band. At first the guys think that she is a spy for MCM but she proves to them differently, all of the guys care and want to protect Ka ...more

I was very pleasantly surprised! The author managed to make all the characters feel like they were equally the "main character" that was amazing to me. You get to know all and like all the characters, and you find yourself rooting for the all.
A very nice book and I would love to read the rest

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

DO NOT READ THIS SERIES IF YOU DO NOT LIKE DARK THEMES

Sorry for all caps, but since the author failed to put that warning at the beginning of this series, I feel I need to(she does warn the reader at the beginning of the book the themes are present in, but it was a little "too little, too late" at that point for me).

I originally rated this book 4 stars, but in good conscience, after reading the rest of the series, I cannot let that rating stand because I would not recommend this series to most p

I really wanted to like this, although at first glance it doesn't seem like my type of book (reverse harem and "rockstar" type romance), but the last "rockstar" romance I read, I liked. And the last reverse harem book I read, I liked. So maybe it was wishful thinking hoping that I'd like this book, but sadly I didn't.

I'm all for a insta-love (or insta-lust in this case) once in a while but this was just way too fast. It was too fast but then it felt like it was dragging. If you can somehow make

2 Stars means the book was OK - I have read similar books that had more character development and that is sorely lacking in this one. The Author also seemed to go out of her way to parody the music and entertainment industry which has me not taking this story seriously at all. Right now I don't know if it's a cross between fantasy and dark comedy, or just not that great. However there is more to this series and my curiosity has won out, so I will continue. ...more

Not exactly sure how to rate this...

I’m a little torn with this one. I didn’t have a problem with the writing or the characters, but some of the story elements were kind of weird.

When Kat found out that she was going to be working with the band she was disappointed. She doesn’t know much about music, except musicals, and she doesn’t like their music. So, I didn’t really understand why little virginal Kat was so quick to be wowed by their kind of creepy advances. And it felt super strange that s

Kat gets hires to be the documenter for a hot band while they are on tour. Kat is interested in getting experience in her field but is a little skittish around the band. Adam doesn't like her at first but slowly he gets interested. The longer they are together the closer the band bonds with Kat and soon they are giving her some new experience that she never expected. Once they all start sleeping together its seems the band calms down and stays out of trouble. However there is someone against the ...more

Over the last year I have read quite a few r/h books. Some I read and are kinda forgotten the next week. This book however has the potential to be one of those books that stay with you no matter how long ago you read it. The story is unique, the characters are unique, their journey in the book is the right amount of exitement and background information to keep the reader guessing as to where this is going and why they are going there. Every action can be questioned and there might be a different ...more

Good foundation laid for the upcoming books in this series. The story line is complex but intriguing. All the main characters have been identified and fleshed-out to this point, with the usual assortment of characters, some more palatable then others and then, some, well, you might just want to give a wide berth to. Some of the elements contained in this first novel are: mystery, high drama, much angst, sexually explicit scenes, betrayal, intrigue, corporate usury and sabotage, This reader has s ...more

Shelves: reverse-harem
I received a free sampler of this book (the first couple chapters I believe) it intrigued me enough to get the full book and give it a try. I have read a few “pop group “ reverse harems and this one is similar yet different to the others. It has a dark edge to it, but in some respects you could well believe the storyline actually happens in real life. The first book does well to explain what is going on as it unfolds without being lengthy and boring. The mix of characters is interesting and ther ...more

This is the first book of a RH (reverse harem) 5 book series. I am a boy band lover (Backstreet Boys fan since 1996!), and have always wanted to see a well-written boy band book. Evie Kady does not disappoint.
And unlike some RH books, this series is well written. I like character development, not just sex, boring words, sex, more boring words, sex...you get the point.
I read all 5 books in the course of a few days, so it is good, easy reading. And I loved the little twist, but I won't give it a

I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This is only the first book in this series. I love books about hot and smexy rock stars. I have been reading a lot of romance as of late. She is there to film all about their lives, but she can't deny how delightful yummy. She was there for work but it became so much more. It is a world that she is not used to. I did like that the book was from different POVs. So will feelings hold up to fame? I will have to read the next few to find ...more

Plot twist!

I love a RH with rockstars! This book actually took me by surprise. It's not the typical trope and has some depth to it. Read it because it's different, because the characters are different and because it's a good story. Excited to see what the journey has in store for them. Also because Seth. Love him

Really good book. Kat is a photographer looking to make her big break when she is approached by MCM to document the most popular boy band Royal Element. Things do go the way they are planned. I liked Kat's personality and the guys. The story is well written. I look forward to reading what happens after Adam's betrayel. ...more

Great story!

I just loved Kat, she was pretty awesome. The guys were great also. I loved the guys and couldn't pick my favorite if I had to. Of course we all know Adam is on the pop list and I hope we find out more of what is going on in that head of his. I can't wait for book 2 and seeing where everything goes from here.

Really liked this book, but... and I know it’s shallow AF, the cover is just UGH! I know... don’t judge a book by it’s cover an all but I really think that a cover is important and it can attract mote readers to the book. My personal artistic tastes aside, I really enjoyed this one, Seth is my favorite, hands down!!

Enjoyable and steamy

So the ending was were it really got hot. A very well written steamy scene. A few minor grammatical errors. Overall an enjoyable book, I wish the fmc had been stronger, feistier or even a bit sassy there was just something missing. There's definitely potential in the next few books and it'll be interesting to see how the characters are developed.

What a rollercoaster!

There are so many things going on in this story, twists and turns, intrigue, suspicion, chemistry, rivalry, lust, jealousy and more.
Great characters and a good story line make this a worthwhile read!

Surprising and unexpected

Reading the blurb I was like I might like this. An then once I got to know the characters on individual I couldn't help but to fall in love with all of them. The story’s cliffhanger left me expecting more growth for all characters.

Missing pieces of story

The story has weird angles to it and it weird dialogue. If feels like it’s been written by somebody who stole other pieces from different stories and didn’t know how to put it back together.

The whole dynamic of this book is different. Book 1 leads up to what might be a great series. I'm not sure yet as this is the first. But it has the potential to be great.
