Publisher's Summary

All Haley Jones wants for her 18th birthday is answers.

Thanks to an overprotective dad and a secluded existence in the Sierra Nevada wilderness, Haley has never experienced a typical life. Her dad claims there's a good reason for their isolation, but he refuses to tell her why, delaying her questions with the promise of answers when she turns 18.

That day has finally arrived, but the explanation raises more questions than answers. And when Haley wishes for the chance to explore the world, she finds that the old adage rings true - be careful what you wish for.

Contains mature themes.

Love this Series!

This is a slow burning reverse harem series and I love how Haley and the Boy’s relationships progress and the building suspense in each book. This is only book one in the series but I would highly recommend starting this series. It’s well written and enjoyable to series to listen too. Can’t wait for all of the series to be available.

Very good

I love the books and I am a heavy reader (or obsessed as my husband says) and these were some of my first choices for Audible since I had a career change and am driving a lot more. I truly enjoyed “Haley’s” voice, it actually suited the picture in my head for Haley and I have been able to listen to this series over and over. Highly recommend it for people that are hesitate to purchase an audio book.

Error

I thought it was sci-fi or fantasy and it’s not so I’m not a good judge of the book.

Why have I never listened to these books before?!?

I had heard a lot about the Stardust series by Julia Clarke and Autumn Reed before but for some reason I never had time to pick them up. I was on a work trip last week and decided to get book 1 on audio for the plane trip and I am so glad I did! This series is addicting, let me tell you!!

First, the storyline: I loved Haley and her tenacious attitude. I loved her inner monologues and her apprehension and cautiousness seemed genuine and not love at first sight, let’s trust a handful of strangers who keep appearing to kidnap me. She has a logical thought process which I can appreciate. I enjoyed getting to meet all the guys and see how she slowly adapts to her new surroundings when her life goes to crap. Couldn’t wait to pick up book 2!

Secondly, the narration: I loved Emily Lawrence’s performance and have definitely added her to my top 10 narrator list! As I mentioned before I hadn’t read the books before listening but I think based on the story I have heard, she embodies Haley and the guys. I think she does a great job with the different women and men characters, pleasantly surprised by her rendition of Liam. Great job, have already gotten the rest of the series available so I can continue to listen ❤️

Last but not least...the guys!!! Daaaang these guys are all so different but so awesome at the same time. Not sure how I feel about Liam and Jackson but I will find out soon since I am currently listening to Draco as I review this 🤓😉😍. I thought I would connect with Ethan the most because of his nerdy tendencies (totally my kryptonite!!) but definitely am loving the brothers and Chase the most 🤤

Good start but not the full story

Felt this was a foundation builder for the series, a bit slow but great characters can't wait to see where it goes. Only ⭐️⭐️ as its more of a long prologue to the next books than a story in its own right.

This book is not a stand alone. Part of a series so you must read on to find out the rest of the story.

Girl turns 18, finds out some well kept family secrets, then her father (whose hidden her away and home schooled her like an assassin) goes missing and then randomly 6 guys turn up and take her under their wing. The end

Shame this isn't a box set so you can read the whole story as one and not in instalments.
