Hello hello, friends. Welcome back to Adele Is Reading. Today I have my book review of:
Escaping Monsters, by Rita Stradling, Alexa B. James.
Escaping Monsters is the first book in the Grayhaven series.
Unfortunately it’s been so long since I’ve read Escaping Monsters, I haven’t a clue if there are any triggers within the story.
First comes love…
Then comes marriage…
…and then comes my con-artist husband selling me to werewolves on our honeymoon.
On the run from my cruel captors, I stumble into Grayhaven. This secret supernatural settlement is packed with biker demons, fae royals, and witches dealing in death-magic. Their small town could be my salvation… or doom.
But when the Grayhaven werewolf pack tracks me down, I feel the noose of impending capture tightening around my throat. I’m an omega, the least dominant werewolf in the supernatural world. If I’m given an order—any order—I’m powerless to refuse.
The five dominant werewolves could enslave me with a word. Instead, they take me in, protect me, and call me their mate. I want to believe that they are mine… that I’m safe.
Yet, there is a malevolent darkness hunting me and it won’t stop until it’s claimed me once more, body and soul.
If you love sexy-as-hell alpha werewolves, feisty heroines, fated mates, and dominant shifters who would do anything to protect their mate, get ready to devour this medium/fast burn reverse harem romance!
Escaping Monsters is the first book in this steamy new Why Choose werewolf series by Alexa B James and Rita Stradling. This book is for 18 and over only please.
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.
Something that I’ve come to adore in Supernatual/Fantasy books are Safe Havens. Safe Havens in which every type of “Monster”/creature has a safe place to stay and recuperate should they absolutely need it.
When I dove into reading Escaping Monsters, I had an idea of what to expect from reading the synopsis, buuuut, there were more elements and plot growth to the story that I didn’t think would occur.
Within Escaping Monsters, I liked how the legend of Omega’s is obviously present in the book, though the lore of Omega’s needing to be dominated (and therefor Alpha’s needing to dominate) was heavily seen throughout the story.
After reading Escaping Monsters I couldn’t exactly remember if there were more than one POV. I did find the main character interesting enough though! So I’m glad I read EM.
I give Escaping Monsters, 2 of 5 stars.
Have you read any books where a Safe Haven is in the story?
Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Reading!
See you soon,
