Publisher's Summary

The Collapse took my rights away. But it’s my heart that will leave me truly powerless.  

Somehow, I’m still alive. So are the gruff, dangerous men I’ve found myself strangely at home with. The Steel Demons escaped execution only to find they’ve been betrayed by one of their own. Once an unbreakable brotherhood, tension and distrust grows between them. 

Meanwhile, I’m stuck between a rock and Reaper’s hard place. 

I should have known better than to fall for the green-eyed, rough-handed president. I knew a man like him would only hurt me. When he drops hints about sharing me with his two best friends, that says enough about what he thinks I am - an object to be passed around, just like every other woman after the Collapse. 

The only question is, can I find the power to walk away? 

Powerless is the second book in a motorcycle-themed dystopian reverse-harem series. This series is full of steam and dangerous men who take what they want. Proceed with caution if easily offended.

Power is just a word

The second book in this series is intense, more action, more character building.

Finally seeing the depth, the personal struggles, and the back stories to some.

All in all good. It’s a Short, but steamy book.

Narrators really do a wonderful job!

My heart was battered in this book!

Book 2 delivers even more than book 1! I loved how Mariposa started to let down her walls in Powerless, with the community/women of the Steel Demons and also with her men (or potential men). I wanted to shake her and Reaper for all the miscommunication haha but was happy when it was finally resolved because daaaaang the sexy times are 🔥🔥🔥. But it wasn't just sexy times, there were hints of cutesy/romantic moments (and even more potential for the future) and I couldn't get enough. Those adorable moments were magical. My heart skipped a beat with some of the more suspenseful moments and was shocked by others! I knew something was off about the animals, but loved how we get more and more clues. I thought Mariposa as the MC doctor was stronger in this book (when dealing with everything but her own love life/heart haha). Shadow is I can tell going to win out as my favorite, I have a feeling haha. But thank goodness this is a reverse harem/whychoose romance because the 4 potential harem members for Mari are amazing (even if some are slower on the uptake haha). Overall, easily 5/5 stars from me again! Loved it, listened way too quickly hahaha.

Narration was again stellar, no complaints from me! Keira and Troy are making their way into my automatically listen list, they keep getting better and better 😊.

You will not be disappointed by these audiobooks, the only complaint you might have is when are the other 3 books going to be released (and yay for book 7 releasing on ebook this week muahaha). Loved this series so much I had to go buy the paperbacks too, I just had to have them on my shelf ❤️❤️❤️

Awesomeness continued!

Crystal Ash does know how to develop a fantastic story and weave characters who are real, raw, loving, and even heartbreaking. I have listened to many reverse harem books. None of them introduced the multiple partners in such an organic way. It was like an extension of these characters and story. It is truly beautiful.
Until now, I refused any MC stories but this one has gripped me and I find myself reacting to the characters, laughing with them, or yelling at them. I think THAT tells me all I need to know about the quality of the book.
I enjoy listening to Keira Stevens and Troy Duran, both. Troy's voice is deep and he does a great job with the guys. His Mari (or any female) narration is not the best.
There are 8 books out in this series with a 9th on the way in June 2021. Only 7 are on Audible.

It Keeps Getting Better

I was actually shocked that this book ended so quickly. At least it seemed quick. That is how much I am enjoying this series.

Dystopian RH Romance, Book 2, slow-burn, paranorma

Paranormal vibes is what is starting to lose me for this series. It is still really light, easy read, with simplistic plot and spice goes from like 1/5 to 4/5 real quick from Book 2 but the bonded pets and the whole 'gods' through pets forms and weird paranormal magic senses is starting to come across a little loosie goosie. Could be good but not well developed.

4/5 🌶

- spicy reverse harem MMF (another M is slow-burn, playing hard to get)
- handmaids tale meets madmax dystopian
- bonded pets
- possible magicky stuff going on
- light easy read, simple plot, short book
- ROMANCE focused

Powerless is POWERFUL!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I actually enjoyed it more than the first one! I have grown very attached to the different characters and a respect for the way they survive together as a community. Well done to the performers and the author!
