This is real RH book! Yass!! all of you who love revers harem books that have some depth, plot, world building and not just sex ,need to read this asap!

What can I say, this book is so complex that I m at loss of words.
Basically it goes like this: Hannah is sentenced to level 4 prison planet Narkos. On the shipment there she makes a connection with another prisoner. At the arrival things don't go as they should be, meaning: she is suppose to choose 4 men and become a unit ( since lack of

Wow wow wow. A RH with all of the men having personalities? Sign me up!!! It's really late at night cus I couldn't put this book down and now I need to sleep. My one issue with this book was that they didn't properly work together, which I hope they'll start to do in the next one. I could easily see them taking the whole system down just by combining their awesomeness.

Edit: Time for a non-middle-of-the-night sleep-deprived review

Okay let me start off by saying, this book only has 58 ratings??? D

By accident I came across from this book. Honestly, I am shocked, because holy motherducking hell, this book was EPIC!

So unique storyline, at least for me. I honestly haven't read anything like that. I don't understand why this book is not making waves? This is so well written, world building is top notch perfecto. Relationship building is slow which I liked very much, never a boring moment there.

CW ⚠ for sexual assault and Spoilers...


So...I was initially intrigued by the premise - most sci-fi prison stories are never quite as raw and dark in setting as I personally feel they should be and this one felt heaps darker than most right off the bat, which I loved - however, I was very quickly put off by the TSTL heroine.

What the author was thinking by writing her heroine this way I will never understand. Hannah is quite simply an idiot. Her unfaltering naivety - despite almost bei

Incredibly frustrating

I did not much like this read. At first I thought it would be hot, but the story ended up being super repetitive and boring. No mfm action, just angst day in and out, wash and repeat. Then to insult to injury, it ended in a to be continued!

Our heroine is sentenced to a prison planet where she is auctioned off. But she fights from the start to make the best of this bad situation. Can she win over the reluctant caretakers and get them to work together?

This is book one of the series, so no question about where to start.

I found the story to be well written and easy to read. The setting is well detailed, grim and gritty as befits a prison planet. Our characters are also well detailed with unique personalities and unique flaws (lots of

This book was so different to what most of the other reverse harem books that I’ve read but I really enjoyed it.

The men in Hannah’s harem don’t like each other and certainly don’t want to share her, causing a lot of conflict in the book. Each of the men are so different but yet they are similar in that they have been broken by their past and are trying to be as human as they can be given that they’re on a prison planet.

Hannah is such a strong character, not physically but mentally and emotionall

So much better than expected!

This book was so much better than I expected. I'm used to the SciFi Prison RH trope which can get fairly corny. I downloaded this KU book assuming it would be more of the same. I couldn't have been more wrong or more pleased. It has everything that I hope for in the very best romances.

Detailed world building? Check!
Well developed characters? Check!
Distinct RH personalities? Check!
Engaging plot? Check!
Lots of steam? Check!
No M/M? Check!
Few if any typos? Check!

This novel was cleanly written and edited, with few typos. The story was gripping and exciting, and I was definitely rooting for the heroine and her four romantic heroes! This is part one in a two part duo logy with these characters. Thankfully, this first novel does not really end on a cliffhanger, so that is a big plus. I am very excited to read book two and get these wonderful characters' Happy Ever After ending. The world building in this novel was excellent, drawn deftly with a subtle hand. ...more

A love story in the making. Hannah is sent to a planet where she will be forced into a unit with four other men. Men who could kill her, rape her, do anything they want with her. But she is fortunate enough to be able to choose her unit and she chooses men who seem to have redeeming qualities. But other than Ky’li, the others have always been loners on the planet, doing their jobs and wanting off after their ten years of service. They don’t want to be in a unit and are angry at first fight and w ...more

Absolutely unputdownable

This is truly a fantastic read, I could not put it down. 3 broken men, 1 stubborn warrior and a kind, loving but very strong MC all trying to survive terrible conditions forced upon them all on a prison planet. Couple that with drugs, corporate intrigue, and individual agendas and this is one hell of a story. There are a few triggers though.... Drug use, unclear consent, rape is mentioned a lot but is never described, possible ptsd.... If you are OK with these then Holy

This book is a darker, steamier read. The main characters in this book are each written having flaws that are very realistic and you can empathize with, and that they and the others in their “unit” have to deal with and overcome in order to stay together and survive. But each still maintains a redeeming quality that keeps you reading on and cheering on Hannah and her men hoping for a happy ending.

A well written story with a great storyline and characters. Hannah is a prisoner and sent to a different planet called Narkos . She will be auctioned and mate to four men. These men are convicts and they do not want to share Hannah, but they are a unit. Can they deal with being a unit and survive? I really enjoyed this read from start to end.

This is the first kind of book I have read in the genre. It is a reverse harem which I love. In this book all if the characters are on a prison planet. I absolutely loved hannah, she always puts everyone first before herself. I love how different the 4 men are in this book. The author does a great job in showing her unique relationship with each of the men. This book also had some hot steamy scenes, would definitely read this book again!

Captivating Reverse Harem Prison Story! The first in a new series. Awesome characters and steamy scenes! Hannah was wrongly accused and convicted and sent to a harsh planet with dangerous convicts. She is forced to choose a unit of 4 men along with herself. It is her goal to get the 4 men she chose to work together to build a family, not just a unit. Lots of conflict with the personalities of each men and how Hannah builds a relationship with each men.
