I have to admit that this is my first K Webster book to review. I’ve read several of them, and they are so forbidden and delicious to read. I’ve barely cracked her book list, and I’m excited for future reading.
This is also my first time reading anything by this duo, and they have quite a few books that I’d love to spend some time with. My Kindle Library is already full, but, after reading, Share Me, this reader is definitely intrigued.
In terms of erotica, reverse harem stories intrigue me. The first one I ever read (of which I don’t remember the name) was simply one woman and five guys having a lot of fun in the bedroom. However, the story was non-existent, and I was disappointed by it. It took me some time to read another one because I worried that a reverse harem book relates more to bedroom-type activities than actually developing a story. Therefore, I’ve become choosey when it comes to this genre of romance.
After reading the blurb for Share Me, I was “all in.” And this book didn’t disappoint because it really was more than the $ex. Yes, it plays a large part in the book. How could it not when you put one woman with four men? Yet, Ker Dukey and Webster create a bit of a slow burn for the men. Since the men have been tasked with protecting Clove, starting when she was seventeen, there is a bit of a forbidden element to the story. While their relationship isn’t consummated until she is well into her twenties, that forbidden tinges the relationship until they finally act upon it. However, that action takes a bit of time in the story, allowing us to learn more about Sebastian, Leo, Ford, and Zac. It is clear that all of them have been pining for each other for some time. Keeping the reader at bay adds delicious tension to the story.
Even more, this story is more than just a reverse harem story. Clove struggles to find her place after growing up with a workhorse, emotionally-distant father. It is the men who have provided her with the emotional security, but acknowledging an attraction to four men is difficult. This book deals with ideas about female sexuality and behaviors. It also provides a story of mystery, as Sebastian, Leo, Ford, and Zac must try to figure who is trying to hurt Clove.
Given all of these elements, this story is more than your typical reverse harem. And this reader LOVES that. I obviously want to read the genre, as it intrigues me. It’s sexy and usually incredibly hot. However, the stories typically fail to add any depth to the characters. This time, however, Ker Dukey and K. Webster have given us more, and, in the end, it’s a book you simply can’t put down once you start.
