Reverse Harem Books: What they are and which ones you should read!
Updated: Aug 20
Reverse harem books (or RH books) have increased in popularity over the past several years. If you search "reverse harem" on Amazon, you'll find more than 10,000 results!
Reverse harem romance books appeal to the ultimate fantasy for many women. It's all about being the center of desire for many men who want to give her the ultimate pleasure.
Reverse harem books can be clean or very dirty. Some focus on the relationships between a woman and three or more men. Others are much more erotic stories and focus on the explicit details of their sex life.
What are Reverse Harem Romance Books?
A reverse harem is the opposite of a harem, which consists of one man with many wives. Consequently, in RH Romance books, there is one woman with many male partners.
Some of these sexy novels include another woman in the harem, but she is only involved with the main woman. Other reverse harem books include sexual relationships between the partners of the main character.
One of the important facets of the best reverse harem romance books is that the main female character doesn't have to choose between the love of one man over the other. They are often called "why choose" books.
Readers associate the RH genre with polyamory. People practice polyamory in many ways, and the word itself means "more love". Some relationship dynamics involve one woman dating many men, and that's what the RH genre focuses on.
So is it a sin to enjoy polyamory in real life or in books? We don't think so: as long as everybody involved in it is comfortable and enjoying the sensuality, we all should go for what makes us satisfied and fulfilled.

Are Gangbang Stories the Same as Erotic Reverse Harem Stories?
No there are some major differences:
Erotic RH novels and stories focus on love and romance, with lots of sex to fulfill your fantasies.
Gangbang erotica is more about the pleasure of multiple men. And Gangbang Stories do focus much more on sex and have less aspects of love and romance.
So are they just dirty smut?
Of course many people would judge Erotic Gangbang stories just as smut, but:
If you love and life your personal sensuality in all its aspects, sometime we all need some dirty and sinful adventures. Therefore: If you are in such a mood, also Erotic Gangbang Stories can give you very satisfying hours...
And if you think you need to mix up your reading game with some sexy and very special Gangbang Stories, you can start with these... And if they are too much smut for you, just skip them and maybe have a look at other exciting genres of Erotic Literature and Erotic Romance.

Check out the Blurb:
Veronica Lopez is a 23-year-old, living the typical college life while studying at Columbia University. With her Mexican heritage and gorgeous looks, melting boys’ hearts was something that would come alongside but she had dedicated all of her attention to her education and wouldn’t spend any time on something that would be considered a waste.
She is one of the most intelligent out of her class and a notable student, having brilliant extra-curricular activities, being a practicing swimmer, which is why her standards are a bit too high for her to consider the boys around her. They are just not mature enough for her.
When she finally crosses paths with Mark Grier on a vacation trip with her father and his friends, the 35-year-old man and her end up having many things in common. He was her father’s close employee, an alumnus from Columbia University, very driven and motivated towards reaching his goals - all the qualities that ended up making her feel a thing or two for the man. Mark has had difficulties finding partners as well and had just come out of an abusive relationship - the interest that Veronica had in him just made him feel better about himself after receiving the attention that he never got from his ex.
Although, he keeps telling himself to not do anything stupid.
A drunken night.
Two lonely and bored people.
