~Rating: 3.5/5 stars~

They say I’m Texas royalty.

Well, this princess needs a damn break. And an orgasm or ten.

Which is why I’m standing on the doorstep of Broken Creek Ranch in the middle of a thunderstorm, determined to ditch my virginity before my father marries me off to one of his filthy rich business partners.

My plan? Pick one of the Maddox brothers to do the deed. But that was before I came face to face with seven of the sexiest men I’ve ever seen.

I’m desperately attracted to each of them. Even oldest brother, Vance, who’s dead set against my plan. He says I’m too young. Too innocent. Whatever.

Fortunately, his brothers invite me to stay and play before choosing who will take my innocence, but how can I pick? More importantly, will I even get the chance? Because there’s no way my father’s going to let me go…

Seven hot, hard men dedicated to the pleasure of one woman? Yes, please! This naughty, standalone reverse harem story has no cheating, and a HEA is guaranteed! 

~Review~

*a copy was provided by NetGalley*

Well, let me start off by saying, I’m kinda glad I continued reading after 1.5 chapters, but at the same time, I won’t be able to unread this/what did I just finish reading, oh my god.

Honestly, the first chapter will really make you pause and make you consider continuing to read on. I mean, I don’t want to spoil anything but who am I kidding, the title literally spoils it, Seven Brothers and a Virgin!!

My take on 1.5 chapters: ‘virgin girl’ drives to ranch, gets stranded while driving to ranch, walks about mile to ranch in a storm, when asked “Why would you come to the ranch?”, ‘virgin girl’ responds: “I need y’all to take my virginity”, oh but why would you want that!?! Because ‘virgin girl’ is tired of having her rich/powerful daddy control her life, because she doesn’t want to marry her daddy’s friend, who mind you is about 20-30 years older than her.

Honestly at this point after reading all that, I was like instant 2-3 stars. It felt so unrealistic, in my opinion, but whatever. And let me just say, some how it works out in her favour at the end.  Also, I have so many questions like why this ranch? why these specific men? why not some random guy at a coffee shop? or a guy from a club?

Also, the sex was like every two seconds. I mean, sure ‘lets just fuck for 30hrs’ no problem.

*wakes up* fucks one of the brothers, then another joins in, and so on. Honestly, it was basically a gang bang.

The only good thing about this book is the very, very detail sex scenes. There was hardly any character development, but the bit of development was good, I think.

Also, the predicable-ness of the story! I mean c’mon! The foreshadowing when the brothers had the conversation of “When she gets pregnant, what do we do?” Let me just say, the brothers all agreed that it doesn’t matter who the father is, they will all be the baby’s dad. [kinda weird.. and unrealistic IMO. Nothing is that SIMPLE! They are bound to have problems in the future!]. And in the epilogue she brings the brothers news of her pregnancy, she’s freaking out about it, and they brothers are like “OHH don’t worry!!! EVERYTHING will bE FiNe!!!”

Geeez, it sounds like I really disliked this book, I actually quite enjoyed it, but again there were so many things that were just….. ya know…

If you like, mindless/non-developed characters, reverse harem books and complete erotica then this book is for you. I recommend it, but only to those of you who like this sort of thing.

  1. I’ve had this book in my Kindle library for some time now, and I just can’t bring myself to read it. I love RH but I’m only 10 pages into this book and already like “ugh”. I think I’m fed up with virgins and normal RH, because there’s nothing normal about it, lol. Paranormal RH is easier for me to digest, because the paranormal aspect usually makes it okay. But great review, I might just have to give it another chance 😉

      1. I think it’s because they’re usually virgins and they always lose their v-card in the most unrealistic way, ever. Whereas in paranormal it’s more “normal” because the coven etc dictates certain rules. Hmm I haven’t read those, but they’re definitely on my TBR list now 🙂
