Broken alphas. A lost wolf. A fate she never expected.
Silver Falls University. There was no reason for a female bitten wolf like myself to be here. More so, there was no reason that someone who grew up as poor as I did, in an overcrowded pack house in the South side of Chicago, should be making her way up north to one of the most prestigious supernatural universities in the country.
I truly had no idea what to expect. Something that was my own fault. I didn’t exactly have a lot of experience with anyone or anything. Sheltered was an understatement, except to the darkness that came with struggling to survive cruel bullying and an incurable loneliness that had formed the woman I was today.
The place I had grown up, never felt like home. No one had ever felt like home.
Well, until I meet a man on the way to campus. A man that had me feeling so completely comfortable yet confused and overwhelmed. There had to be something wrong with me, right? This wasn’t normal. Then again, I should have realized that nothing about my life moving forward would be normal.
I just didn’t realize how much was in store for me.
Join Effie Harlow on her journey at Silver Falls University, where she begins to realize that something about her is different. This reverse harem paranormal romance features five protective and possessive wolf shifters that are bound and determined to keep Effie by their side, no matter what. To prove to her that she is so much more than anyone had ever tried to tell her she was. Will they be able to convince her of her place at Silver Falls and in their life? Or will Effie get lost in the university crowds like she did back home? Find out in this first installment of the Silver Falls University Series. Lost is the 1st book in the Silver Falls University out of 5.
Warning: This PNR University style RH will contain swearing, adult sexual content +18, elements of PTSD and prior abuse, violence, and additional darker themes.
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.
Lost has multiple points of view within the book, and I found that each pov were easily discernible from others. There are a total of 5 points of view — 4 of those being from the male leads in the story. The only thing that I found were similar to each other was that the guys want the best for the female lead, and will protect her at all costs.
I’m honestly glad that I read Lost, since I found the story to be super intriguing. However the number one thing that I am most thankful for in this book is that Lost isn’t a ‘Bully Romance.’ Personally I have a hate/love relationship with bully romance stories, so I am so, so, thankful to the author that they didn’t make Lost a bully romance novel.
Going on to other things, I’m just going to say it… Lost is one hell of a book. Lost was so, so good. Seriously. I enjoyed all the pov’s, and I’m pretty excited to get back into the Silver Frost University world with the next book.
Fun fact! Near to Vancouver, there’s a university named “Simon Fraser University,” known to the locals mostly as SFU. Which, Silver Frost University… I chuckle to myself knowing that Silver Frost Uni could also be abbreviated as ‘SFU.’
In the end, I’m giving Lost, 3 of 5 stars. I’m definitely going to read the next book when I can.
