Reverse Harem books will usually feature one heroine who is in a relationship with multiple men. They have been around for some time now. You may have previously spotted them with very sexual covers and some of their golden years were the 2000s. However, now they have also changed, been rebranded, and creatively written as authors’ imaginations evolve.
Increased acceptance of different lifestyle preferences and diversification have made these books very popular. Since these books may not appeal to everyone, their covers will always give a warning and specify the appropriate audience. These books may have triggers for some readers, contain explicit language, trauma and abuse and these are some of the factors to consider before you can embark on reading them.
In this article, we highlight and give a glimpse of what we think are some of the intriguing reverse harem books.

Briar Monroe is fighting hard to move from past trauma and wants to remain under the radar and eventually graduate. However, when she gets into this school, she discovers these four kings. They can try to torment and break her, but they have no idea what she has endured. Should she keep her mouth shut? Should she let them win? Briar is however not afraid of getting her hands dirty.

Marked Omega, by Lizzy Bequin
Marked Omega is not your typical alpha and omega story. This one is fantastic. It features an AI and typical scientists that are seeking a way to dominate the earth.
Lily has gone on a supposed rescue mission in a quarantine zone. She knew this was not a good idea but she never expected to find herself restrained as a bait to entice the Alphas. Very soon, her body will exhibit an estrus from the prevalent pheromones. She will no longer be able to hide her body’s urgent desire. She is aware of all that will take place as she is knowledgeable about the cataclysm.
These beasts will get to her from the cravings of an omega’s flesh and claim her. In the most unimaginable and shameful of ways, they will use her and each one will also have a share of her body for their ferocious pleasure. However, she will love it. They are more than one and are now almost getting to her. Her time is almost up.
Alphas are meant to be too dominant and they will usually objectify the omega. The twist is that these alphas are different from the typical feral ones. They want Lily to want them too, just like they dominantly want her. A strong bond will be created in this post-apocalyptic world.
