Trickery by Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington
Curse of the Gods Book 1
Romantic Comedy, Paranormal Romance, Reverse Harem
Steam Level: Sweet
In Minatsol, being a dweller means that you are literally no better than dirt. In fact, dirt might actually be more useful than Willa. Her life will be one of servitude to the sols, the magic-blessed beings who could one day be chosen to become gods.
At least her outer village is far removed from the cities of the sols, and she won’t ever be forced to present herself to them… Until one small mistake changes everything, and Willa is awarded a position to serve at Blesswood, the top sol academy in the world—a position that she definitely did not earn.
Under the sudden, watchful eye of the gods, she will be tasked to serve the Abcurse brothers, five sols built of arrogance, perfection and power. They are almost gods themselves, and under their service she is either going to end up sentenced to death, or else they are going to ruin her so badly that she will wish for it.

Normally this would be a Wednesday post as Trickery is not your normal rom-com. It is a reverse harem, but with a clumsy heroine and five broody guys, the antics are hilarious.
I have to admit normally I prefer my Reverse Harems on the steamy side, but this one was super cute. The story took a little bit for me to get into. The book’s beginning seemed to focus mostly on how clumsy Willa was, which got old for me pretty quickly. Buuut once the story got going, I was really into it.
I really enjoyed the Abcurse brothers. They have that mysterious broody thing down pat. And I was here for it. One problem I did have is I honestly cannot tell you who’s who. So that was a bit confusing for me. But I still really enjoyed them and their interactions with Willa. As I said, they were very mysterious, and I enjoyed having that mystery solved just a little bit, especially as we learn more about Willa.
This is a series, and while I wouldn’t say it ends on a cliffhanger, it certainly is not a completed story. I will be reading the next book.
