One grim reaper. Three hellhounds who refuse to bow down to her. A monster hunting them in the shadows… Ten years ago, I was judged worthy of life after death and returned to the mortal realm as a grim reaper. Scythe in hand, I guide souls to deliverance—and it’s time for a promotion. My new territory is triple the size of any I’ve worked before. High death rates mean o One grim reaper. Three hellhounds who refuse to bow down to her. A monster hunting them in the shadows… Ten years ago, I was judged worthy of life after death and returned to the mortal realm as a grim reaper. Scythe in hand, I guide souls to deliverance—and it’s time for a promotion. My new territory is triple the size of any I’ve worked before.

A runt who flinches at every command. I want them—even if they don’t want me. Because the hunger in their eyes tells a different story. But the fact that they can’t decide whether to love me or hate me, fight me or screw me, is making our situation way too complicated. Still, I refuse to give up. If this infuriatingly handsome trio can’t be trained, if we don’t pass the trials, they go back to a cage and a cruel demon master. Yeah. Not happening.

    4ish, I went back and forth but I'm leaving it as a 4 The reason why is because there were 3 star moments, 4 star moments and 5 star moments. Some of the threes, happened to be some verbose language in areas where it was just a little too much. This is mostly seen in the very beginning, especially with the descriptions of the main character in a worshipful manner. Which is fine, you see it all the time. In this case it was just a bit much.

Another one was the length felt a little long and I felt like I was running a marathon after a while. Long books aren't bad, though sometimes if there's not enough happening to keep someone invested a reader can start to feel it. And I wished for some kind of resolution to the creepy hell hound forced breeding etc situation. The villain felt a little flat, but I really dig the creativity into the villain's development. A good chunk of the book though was a four. It was unique, I liked the dynamics of the group and how each relationship was well crafted. This is a very difficult thing to do in RH. Often times the love interests fuse into the same personality and you don't really feel the romantic relationships. It's especially an issue in one shots. This one though was solid. There were some five star moments too. The individual outings were really fun and heartfelt. favorite was Declan's. It is very very very hard for people to write good sex scenes. It is much harder to get me to read them. I usually skim it. This though was unique and powerful enough for me to read the whole thing and enjoy it. This wasn't just smut for the hell of it, this was some classy artistic shit and I loved it. Will absolutely look into other books from this author.

    I've been going through a phase where I want to read more standalone RH. When I fell upon this, I started it immediately and had 0 regrets. This book is a good length for the build up of the relationship with all the guys. It could be wordy at times, but the story and relationships progressed at a great (slower) speed for me. The story felt pretty unique too because she's the one with the power and in charge for once, but she treats them as equals. They're the abused ones who she helps.

I read this book knowing that there were some triggers for me and maybe that’s what caused me to feel all the feels but I really think the story is well written and the characters compelling. The relationships flowed organically — it wasn’t an insta-love situation — and there were ups and downs that kept things interesting and the story moving forward. I had a hard time with Knox at points but once you know his background it wouldn’t have made sense for it to go any other way than the way it had gone.

    Not that bad but nothing really happened until the end of the book. When you think of an RH book, Reaper's Pack is pretty tame compared to others I've read. Things were definitely a slow burn with the reaper and her hellhounds. Of course, they flirted around one another until things just became to hot and bothered for them all.

Yes, they pushed and pulled towards one another and even tried to dance around eggshells from time to time. Yet, we all knew that they were all going to become a thing. Even if they did make me patiently wait for it to all happened. The ending was kind of gross and a bit bad ass. It definitely made me feel for them all and just fall more in like with them. Not sure what the next book will hold but maybe since there's no more ward for them things might get a bit more interesting? Or maybe when someone comes to take the other herd of hellhounds? No idea. I might dive into it though.

It’s been top of my “Kindle recommendations” for a while now and it just goes to show you, sometimes it’s worth trying those recs.. maybe my kindle knows me better than I do! Loved that it was standalone and it was perfect just as that. It revolves more around the love story and Hazel (The Reaper) gaining the trust of the pack and trusting them in return.

    This was a pretty good, if slightly too long read. The best thing about it was the way the author took the time to properly build the relationships with depth, something frequently lacking in RH, particularly in a stand alone, so that impressed me. However, there wasn't really much of a plot beyond that. I mean there was, it just wasn't the focus and didn't hold my interest.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. A little long for me, slow and sweet. The main theme is getting to know the hell hounds and building relationships, with a stalker in the background. The culprit was a little abrupt but I liked how everything played out. Multiple POV, plenty of sex and a lot of emotion. Nice and smooth standalone. Don’t have a favourite character, as they all have their moments. Favourite part was the pizza.

    This book has such a great premise, and really stood out as something original when I read the synopsis. How many other reverse harem books are there about grim reapers and hellhounds? The characters are all adults, and it’s a standalone which is a nice change of pace. I really wanted to love it, but unfortunately I did not. It’s a long, drawn out, slow burn and I was bored long before the half-way mark. Our heroine is Hazel, a nurse who was killed during WWII and went to heaven. Ten years ago sh This book has such a great premise, and really stood out as something original when I read the synopsis. How many other reverse harem books are there about grim reapers and hellhounds? The characters are all adults, and it’s a standalone which is a nice change of pace. I really wanted to love it, but unfortunately I did not. It’s a long, drawn out, slow burn and I was bored long before the half-way mark. Our heroine is Hazel, a nurse who was killed during WWII and went to heaven. Ten years ago she was given the opportunity to return to Earth as a reaper. She’s passionate about her job, but she’s also lonely and sad. Being around the living is a constant reminder of everything she lost and never got to experience. When she’s promoted to work in a large city she gets to choose a pack of hellhounds to help her reap souls. She finds herself drawn to a ragtag group of rejects who have been scarred by abuse. The alpha and beta of the pack make it clear they don’t want to work with Hazel, and immediately start plotting their escape. They decide to try and take advantage of her kindness in the hopes that she’ll let them go. Instead it’s Hazel who wins them over, though it takes time for them to all get on the same page. One of my main issues with this book is how little actually happens. These characters spend the majority of their time brooding. The guys are supposedly desperate to escape, but we only see them trying to do so maybe twice. There’s a kind of random, over the top battle against a bad guy at the end that felt like it was only there to provide a big, dramatic and climatic moment. I thought the scenes where Hazel was training the guys to reap were the most interesting. There was just too much filler in between those moments. That’s really my other big issue with this book, all of the filler. There would be two or three lines of dialogue, then a paragraph describing the way a character looked, another paragraph detailing body language and movement, a paragraph giving us the characters thoughts, and then maybe a page later another character would reply and by that point I’d forgotten what the first person actually said. The pacing felt so slow and awkward. It was like the characters’ minds were wandering, and I found mine wandering as well. The romance was fine, and the sex scenes were medium level heat. In general I did like the characters. I appreciate that the guys were all unique individuals that I didn’t have any trouble keeping straight. I liked that Hazel was strong, honorable and kind. I found it difficult to read about her depression simply because of everything going on in the world right now. In the middle of a pandemic it’s tough to read about a character who is kind of miserable after going to heaven. If you’re looking for a more introspective read focusing on the way the characters are feeling then you’ll probably enjoy this more than I did. I’ve realized I need something a little lighter and faster paced after being stuck in my house for a month, but that’s my issue and not the book’s fault.

As part of her recent promotion, she’s tasked with choosing and training a hellhound pack to assist her in her job. Felling an instant connection with a pack of three misfits Hazels wants nothing more than to be accepted by them. But this pack has other ideas life hasn’t been easy for any of them and they now long for escape; this new gig reaping is just a pit-stop on their journey towards freedom and Hazel is now the enemy standing directly in their way. Each hellhound was distinct here we have Knox the closed off alpha protector who will do anything to keep his pack of three safe. Gunner the beta highly intelligent and analytical then finally Declan the runt who up until Knox and Gunner took him under their collective wings was only used to rejection and torment. He initially is very fearful and hesitant. All three were raised in hell their life has definitely not been an easy one and they all wear scars both internally and externally. Hazel has quite the fight on her hands to integrate herself into this tight-knit family. This was not really a dark read rather it had quite a sweet undertone to the romance it’s not a terribly angsty one either. Declan is team Hazel from day one whilst the other two especially Knox need more persuasion to let her in. There was plenty of heat lots of loyalty some danger thrown in at the end overall this was an easy enjoyable experience whilst it didn’t blow me away it was still a solid read that was well written and I definitely liked the ideas of hellhounds and reapers working together very intriguing concept.

    Though it says Book #1 this is a complete story within itself. I enjoyed diving into this world where we follow a Reaper and her journey to pick the right pack of Hellhounds. Very interesting! Loved the push and pull. Would have liked more interaction between her and the Alpha but overall really enjoyed this book and will be reading Book #2!

    I enjoyed this and thought it was quite sweet in places. I liked the reaping world and the characters. I liked the idea of the hell hounds and how they were different like the different breed of dogs. It will be interesting to see what happens next and if they can get their pack to grow or if the 4 of them become super tough.

I think that this story had all the makings of a five star read for me, with the enemies to lovers, and a made family with the Hellhounds and a strong heroine, but for some reason this just fell flat for me. I think that the reason it wasn't as highly rated as other RH I've read is because there would be scenes in the story that were fluff, and didn't to me make an impact. There were two main things that were happening in this story the trial that the Hounds and Hazel had to go through to make sure that they were a good fit ((view spoiler)[that for some reason I felt like we didn't even see the trails... which was a little disappointing since that is what they had to train for (hide spoiler)] ) and also a mystery psycho out on the loose. So when reading there was a lot of the outings with the hounds and Hazel, were just there for no reason like the club scene, I felt like that wasn't necessary. I get Hazel is doing something nice for the boys, and it is how they can bond, but it didn't add anything to the story. I just wished there was more action and dialogue than fluff. I think that the writing of the story was good, just too much talking around in circles, or attention to the wrong details. That made it slow for me to read towards the 75-90% mark I was debating DNFing since I was losing a little interest, nothing was gripping me. I did end up skimming towards the end where some surprising things happened, but not enough to make me raise my rating. That is just a personal opinion since this book was very highly rated. I am going to be looking out for Rhea's upcoming books since I enjoyed her writing, I just wish that this was a little shorter or had more action to make it more engaging.

    Annoyingly, there is a really good fantasy novel buried in this book, but it never quite lands. The plot is great, the characters are great, the sex is a bit superfluous and not quite to my taste, but not really an issue. The main problem I think is that whilst Hazel (the Reaper) is a flawed heroine with a good arc in the plot and she's not perfect (which is great and makes it easy to empathise with her), we keep being told that she is perfect and that gets rather irritating.

It gets rammed down your throat page after page to ludicrous degrees. As an example, we're told no fewer that 4 times that she died as a nurse tended wounded soldiers fighting the Nazis - to re-emphasize we're not shown that, it just keeps getting restated for us - so that we know she was a good person who died tragically young etc.... As a bit of a pedant, I was especially irritated - the story says she died in a Luftwaffe airstrike in France in 1943 whilst caring for wounded British soldiers. D-Day was June 1944 so there were no British soldiers in France in '43 and the Luftwaffe wasn't doing airstrikes there. Move the location of Hazel's death to Southampton and it all fits together, but the author wasn't paying attention to details like that because the only point of including the details at all was too make our heroine more worthy, more brave - i.e. she was killed directly by Nazis whilst she was on the frontlines... It really grated.

There is strife, issues and a wish for freedom, yet truth and reality smack all the players in the face and change up the game in ways none of them quite expect - and it's beautiful. I expected more tropes to be in here, considering the way the story was going, yet those obvious issues didn't arise, leading me to enjoy this story even more. I hate it when an author takes the easy way out with a plot, though it is often understandable. Rhea Watson steps away from the easy here, in favor of a solid story that reads well and flows even better. I was a touch on the fence with the sexual scenes, at least the beginning steps. There was a feel of reluctant consent to the encounters... but not non-con, if that makes sense? It's hard to explain, as it both was and wasn't - nothing happened that wasn't wanted, but if felt like one party pushed the connection beyond what the other thought was appropriate for that moment, desired or not. Fortunately, the feeling was brief. Pros:

    Sweet and Steamy Stand Alone This novel is unlike any supernatural romance I’ve read before. It’s refreshing, and maybe there are more books like it out there, but I’ve yet to come across them. Our FMC is a reaper, a mostly new one. Only ten years into reaping, which is very young compared to many others who have been around for centuries. And she’s being gifted her very own pack of hellhounds. Turns out, they’re her fated mates. And they don’t want to be owned, to be leashed and ordered around.

And she’s being gifted her very own pack of hellhounds. Turns out, they’re her fated mates. And they don’t want to be owned, to be leashed and ordered around. Thus begins the battle of wills between Hazel and her boys. And it’s done so perfectly, a nice slow-burn that was very satisfying as each of them slowly let down their guard. One at a time. There’s plenty of tension between the characters in the book, enough to make you antsy and excited for the good stuff to start. But this is more than just smut. There’s a good plot to this story. And it’s got amazing character development. It’s also very sweet. So glad I picked this one up on a whim!

    An enthralling debut novel by Rhea Watson. I found myself quite intrigued by this story. The characters were interesting and well developed, each with his /her own unique traits. I loved the dynamic between Hazel and the Hellhounds. The boys were absolutely delicious, and I quite enjoyed the dynamic between them and Hazel (who is supposed to train them and be their pack leader). The chemistry between the four protagonists was scorching hot and the suspenseful and mysterious atmosphere kept me in An enthralling debut novel by Rhea Watson.

    Hazel's relatively new at her job as a grim reaper--someone who aids souls on their journey from earth to the afterlife. She's just got a promotion expanding her territory and now needs a pack of hellhound shifters to help her. Alpha Knox and his pack of two--Declan and Gunnar--have been severely mistreated by their demon masters and are determined to escape as soon as the opportunity presents itself. Fun, unique setting.

    What can I say? I love this author’s writing. I’m always left wanting more because I get so attached to the characters that I don’t want their stories to end. While this is Rhea Watson’s reverse harem debut, she has written/is writing in other romance genres under other pen names. I love everything this woman writes. This reverse harem was no exception. It didn’t feel forced, and each hellhound had their own distinct personality. I loved the shifting dynamics in the pack with and because of Haze What can I say? I love this author’s writing.

It didn’t feel forced, and each hellhound had their own distinct personality. I loved the shifting dynamics in the pack with and because of Hazel. Declan growing stronger and more outgoing was one of my favorite parts, although personally my favorite hellhound was Gunnar. Whip-smart and the instigator as Hazel calls him, he takes the lead in the bedroom but is the beta of the pack. Knox made me want to scream in frustration for the first half of the book, because he was being so stubborn and couldn’t see what was right in front of him. I loved that Declan was the first to really fall for Hazel. This review is turning into word vomit because I could keep talking about how much I love these characters, but you really need to read the book for yourself!! As for Hazel, she is a strong heroine who was desperately lonely for a long time, but is dedicated to her job and has a kind heart. She’s not an alpha but she doesn’t back down from a fight, so all her scenes with Knox were intense as they faced off. I also loved all the storms that happened in this book that added to the atmosphere at just the right moments. I love a good thunderstorm!! What are you waiting for? Get this the day it releases on Amazon, March 26th!
