In a world where there’s only one woman for every twelve men, a lottery is the chance for five lucky men to win the prize of a lifetime… her hand in marriage.
Nix never put his name in the marriage lottery for a reason.
He doesn’t need a woman.
There aren’t that many to go around anyway, not after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 90% of the female population.
He has his job as head of the Security Squadron and it’s all he needs. He looks out for the township. He protects the few women who are left.
But when his name is called to be one of the five husbands to the woman rescued from the badlands, he doesn’t speak up to correct the error.
Because Audrey’s like no one he’s ever met before.
That’s the name for her.
She might be just the woman to handle a rough, brutal man like him.
Sharing her with four other men is a small price to pay.
In fact, the closer they all grow, the more Nix realizes he might finally have again what he lost so long ago—a real family.
But when Audrey’s life is endangered, will Nix be able to save the woman he’s just learned how to love?
I was granted a book via Booksprout. This was the book that introduced me to the reverse harem genre. Needless to say that it was an excellent choice for my first one! When I picked up the book, I wasn’t sure if I would like this genre but it turns out that I do! I’m a sucker for post-apocalyptic and romance books and this one combines both very nicely.
Now about the story. We are currently a decade after a virus killed 90% of the female population. In attempt to stop the spread, the governments started a nuclear war that wiped out almost everything and made the situation worse. Audrey after being attacked, she’s rescued and brought to a community where every woman over 19 years old has to marry 5 men and form a clan. The men are being randomly chosen in a lottery.
That’s how she finds herself betrothed to Clark, Graham, Danny, Mateo and Nix. Each one of them has his own personality and forms a special connection with her. Even though she starts having feelings for them, she can’t stop thinking of escaping. Her dilemma becomes worse now that other people are trying to hurt them. What will Audrey do? Will she stay with her men or leave them behind?
This book is full of steamy and hot scenes and should come with a fire warning 😛
If you haven’t figured it out yet, I loved the book and I totally recommend it for lovers of this genre!!
