Fierce. Feared. Always revered.
Five guys on a mission to tear me to the ground.
Three guys, I can’t escape—they make my heart pound.
I’m a moth to a flame of their white-hot fire.
But they’re divided by secrets, lies, and raging desire.
Our paths are crossed. Our fate is sealed.
Our gaping wounds are yet to be healed.
Even as they try to break me, I won’t give in.
So in the end, will the truth come out, or will lies win?
I have read MV Ellis before and thoroughly enjoyed them. However, The Fallen series was something that I just couldn’t wrap my head around. It wasn’t the genre for me. I did not realize that this was a reverse harem series and did not enjoy them at all.
The books lacked backstories and content for me. Nothing stood out, with the exception of 3 friends sharing one girl at different times, wherever they could. It seemed that Blake only had one thing in mind, which was sex. Don’t get me wrong, sex isn’t the problem, it was the fact that there didn’t really seem to be a storyline, other than finding a spot to have sex or be groped by three best friends; Zephyr, Tyce, and Thunder. Blake just seemed to be a challenge to the trio.
If you like reverse harems, then you might want to check this book out, as it may be right up your alley. It just lacked a good back story for me.
MV ELLIS knows what it’s like to fall head over heels in love with a badass musician. She followed her heart halfway around the world to be with one. She moved from London to Sydney after a steamy holiday romance with a sexy bass player in sultry Brazil.
Twelve years, two children and a dog later, and she’s still smitten. All this with a guy she sat next to on a bus for 36 hours! She has toured internationally as a ‘WAG’, and her experiences inspire her writing.
Ellis’ love of romance began when she was 11 years old, after a summer spent secretly reading her auntie’s books. She’s been a sucker for an alpha hero and strong heroine ever since.
An avid reader, Ellis always knew that she’d write a book of her own one day. She was right about that. Following a career spanning advertising, marketing, and social media, she finally wrote Catching London in 2017. She has continued to expand the Heartless Few series beyond Catching London, with releases planned through to 2020. In addition, she has launched a new four-part series, Rough Ink series, set in the sexy world of a New York tattoo studio. Expect the same *sexy badass guys, angst galore, witty banter, scorching bedroom scenes, and kickass sassy women; but with a whole new world, and cast of characters to get to know and love. Zed, the first book in the series launched in June 2019.
