One kiss might save her, but if Rosemary has to lose even one of her men, she doesn’t want a prince.
The only role of Rosemary's nest of men is to feed her insatiable hunger for lust, but that's not what she wants for them. Or what they want from her. While Rosemary presses for them to live their own lives, they each find ways to steal into her heart. With the threat of her mother's nest hanging over them, Rosemary decides to surrender to the love they offer and focus on building their combined strength to stand against the inevitable attacks.
When her control over her powers slips, another problem arises. The nest is incomplete. A prince must be chosen, and if he is not among her men, she'll be forced to let one of them go.
She once feared her heart wasn't big enough to hold them all. Now she fears she's not strong enough to release even one. Even if it costs her her life.
Rosemary just wants to go to college, become a Veterinarian, and lead a normal life like everyone else… well that’s if normal includes a nest of willing men who cater to your every sexual need. You see, Rosemary isn’t exactly a normal girl because she’s also a succubus and one in which sexual contact is necessary for her everyday survival.
In order to become a true queen of her nest and gain control of her growing powers she must find a prince, the one man who can resist her seduction. Rosemary wants nothing more at this point then for her men to lead as normal lives as possible, which means no getting attached – easier said than done. She holds herself back from them and refuses to allow any other sort of intimacy, other than what’s played out in the bedroom, to occur. This way if she loses them or they lose her the loss is not felt as deeply, especially when she’s constantly looking over her shoulder for an evil mother who wants her dead. Unfortunately, her nest sees right through the emotional walls she’s trying to build and they’ve decided a sacrifice will be made.
Ms. Sommerland packs elements of almost every major fairytale into this story but adds an erotic and emotional twist. All of the characters, especially the men, were written with distinct personalities and given their own small spotlight into the story at certain points. It gave me a nice connection to each of the men, which then gives Rosemary’s dilemma more believability.
The sexual encounters are very arousing and done with a nice balance of both lust and love between the characters with the exception of a couple scenes. The story is pleasantly paced, but the world building felt a little lacking. Very interesting for what was there, but I found myself with more questions than answers about why and how things came to be.
Even so, I would definitely recommend this story to readers who like fantasy with an edge of suspense and plenty of hot lovin’.
