Publisher's Summary

Love can save you...if it doesn't destroy you first. 

Gwen has spent her life on the road, picking up and moving every few months when her mother has a mental break. They take care of each other. They don't need anyone else. Or so Gwen believes...until her mother announces she's met a man online. 

When they arrive at his opulent home, Gwen is plunged into a world that seems too good to be true. Suddenly she's living in a mansion overlooking the beach and eating foods she's only read about in paperback novels. Her mother's new man has a gorgeous daughter and four irresistible sons who apparently don't mind her complete social incompetence. At last, her dream of going to school and being a normal 16-year-old is within her reach. 

But the family they've joined has more than its share of secrets. Not all of them want her there, and her inexplicable attraction to each of them only complicates matters further. When strange phenomena begin to occur in their presence, Gwen must emerge from her protective shell and embrace a destiny she's never imagined. 

Contains mature themes.

Surprisingly Amazing

I don't normally write reviews... I got recommended this book by audible and thought it was gonna be a part for the course reverse harem. It turned out to be really good and I got sucked into the story. So when I saw that it was kinda new with not a lot of reviews i decided to write one to try and get others to give it a shot. I'm really looking forward to book 2!

Great book

I really liked this audiobook. The story was unique and layered. The characters were real , complex, and distinct from one another. The female reader was great. The male was way over the top exaggerated with the accent, which made it kind of comical at inappropriate times. Once I got used to him it was okay, though. I got really drawn in and wanted to keep reading. It's a "quiet" book that focuses on relationship between the characters. Overall, I would recommend.

It had potential but fell short

The foundations of this had the potential to be a good one. You had these siblings who all carried a piece of a god inside them and when they came together they were powerful. Sounds good right! But instead of building on that, the book puts most of its focus on the one brother who’s a jerk and the heroine who’s a complete doormat. Spoiler Alert! They don’t find their missing person. The book ends with the jerk brother finally explaining why he was so rude her. It’s a duma** reason. Don’t waste your credit on this one.

Repeats a lot

Writer spent a lot of time repeating Gwen's life story. How crazy her mom was & taking care of her. How she has to be around the other kids. I felt like 36 chapters should have been reduced to 8-10. Maybe it was a way to stretch the book in to a series.

Serial not series

The story was workable enough until Gwen stops Xander from pummeling Joaquin; then it took a major leap into Too Stupid To Live territory. In a logical progression, they would have interrogated him. They would have made more of Gwen’s throat being slit; following that, they would have made more of her healing. If healing was common, it would have been mentioned earlier in the story.
And going back, if caterers and florists invaded the house, why did they have the ceremony on a beach they had to drive to, not in the house? Or beach by the house? As a small town, there would absolutely be gawkers watching them on the beach. Why no big gossip at school about mega wave, caterers and florists, or the wedding?
What ending? It just stopped.
Wyles did a decent job of narration. Utah had wierd voices for the characters. Also, even a Midwesterner can tell the difference between Jersey Shore and what should be Cape Cod, or Boston.

The LGBT in this book was unnecessary.

i did struggle to finish this book, in overall it was a good book. but it could of done it without the lgbt. i personally if i would of known that there is even a hint of it (girl on girl) i would have never listened to this book. taking those scenes off, the book would of been ok. like many other reviews say nothing happend in this book really, but the revalation of the mystery of the reunion and caos.

**Spolier Alert***


so there is still work on it, im going to risk n listen to the next book, i just risk and hope that those lgbt scens are gone. bc i do want to find out how is this book considered a reverse Harem.

Performance and quality is poor

Not great. The performances from the readers is horrible. The girl reader is really bland. The guy is way too over the top especially with the accent. The story line is all over the place. I would not call this a romance or a teen novel. I will not be finishing this book. There really isn't anything special or fun about this book. All the main character does is pine over her step brothers and sister, by the way she is 15. It's weird and uncomfortable to even read. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. It's a waste of money and/or credit. It really is hard to even describe how not good this book is...

Couldn't finish it

I struggled for a while trying to finish this book and finally gave up. There were many really awkward moments and just awkward writing. I really tried to give it a chance, but I did not like the story, characters, or narrators. Performance would ha even better if it was just the female narrator, she did the female and male voices better than the male narrator. It was also hard to follow the characters talking because the narrator's voices were so different for every every character.

good story but

the story is not that bad but the male narrator totally ruined the story he tried to hard with the voices and the way he did the female voices was awful they should have let the woman do the entire story or found someone else to do the male parts.
