Hello friends! Today I have my review of Winter’s Guardian by G. Bailey.
Winter’s Guardian is the first book in Her Guardian series.
Trigger / Content Warning: Sex Scenes, Violence.
When Winter started university with her best friend Alex, she didn’t expect to find herself in the middle of a supernatural war. Who knew saving a stray wolf could earn you the alliance of the pack.
To make things more complicated, the broody and very attractive Jaxson is tasked with keeping her safe from the growing vampire threat in town. It’s a shame he can’t stand her and enjoys irritating the hell out of her.
When she finds out her new boyfriend has his own secrets, can she trust anyone anymore?
What happens when you get yourself stuck in the middle of a war?
This is a reverse harem book series.
17+ readers only
From GoodReads [x]:
“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.
I ended up buying the Her Guardians box set by accident, thinking I was buying from another author, when in fact, I had bought the wrong series. Her Guardians series. However, for the price I bought the box set for, and what happens throughout the series, I’m not mad at myself for making that mistake.
Within Winter’s Guardian there are multiple points of view (POV). The main POV that we read from is Winter. We see Winter dealing with the repercussions of helping the stray wolf. From doing so however, Winter enters a world that she only 50% thought was fake.
Then on we see Winter dealing with almost two different storylines because she’s interested in two different guys equally. And she’s not sure how she feels about that.
What I liked about Winter’s Guardian was that it was legitimately funny. I laughed alongside the characters in this novel, and admittedly, laughed at them during some points.
While Winter’s Guardian doesn’t truly have a dull moment, there are some definite dramatic scenes that I rolled my eyes at.
The pace of Winter’s Guardian was enjoyable. I was never bored with the story, but never did I think that the story was moving too quickly either.
I found that this first book in the Her Guardians series was an enjoyable read.
Another thing that I didn’t like about this book (and the series in general) is that the author uses the word ‘slut’ a little too often. I honestly 100% disliked that Winter used terms of ‘slutty dress’ or calling a girl a ‘slut.’
Overall I enjoyed reading the start to Winter’s story. While there were some word choices that could have easily been avoided, I loved reading from all the different points of view.
I give Winter’s Guardian, 3.5 stars.
