Blurb:


Love finds her in her darkest hours…

Nora Leslie’s twenty-year existence revolved around one thing—survival. A split second decision under a hail of gunfire saves the lives of her students and alters her own forever.  

When she wakes in the hospital, Nora finds herself a suspect in the worst tragedy to ever strike her small college town. Thrust into the spotlight as the villain, instead of the hero, she is in desperate need of allies

A chance meeting introduces her to Ryan Valore, a young law student searching to outrun the guilt of his past. With the world turned against her, Nora accepts his aid, and the help of his roommates, a group of guys with pasts as dark as her own. For them, Nora is everything they never believed they deserved.

4 out of 5 (very good)


Finding Honor is the first book in The Searchers series, and is the first book by Ripley Proserpina that I have read. Although I have read lots of ménage and multi-partner stories, this is also the first story where it was all brand new. Nora has no idea that it is possible to be with more than one person at a time, without chaos commencing. As for the "boys", having one woman between them isn't something they had thought about either, and they don't all find it easy. However, this was something that only happened towards the end of the book, so you have the whole book trying to figure out just why Nora was a "person of interest" and what was with the vendetta against her. 

Throughout the story, you get snippets of the history regarding all the characters, but not the full thing. This is part of a series, so please don't expect to have all the answers by the time you finish this book. There is a study going on that Nora is involved in that I'm sure will get more air time. Also, the girl that Nora meets towards the end of the book. 

On the whole, I enjoyed this story with the information given. The one thing I would say is that although Apollo and Ryan like Nora from the beginning, the others don't (or at least don't appear to). They go from being friends, to being unable to keep their hands off Nora, especially Seok. I'm not sure if it's her perfume, or what, but there you go!!!

Very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, this is the start of a series. With plenty of questions waiting to be answered, this series has the potential to become a first-class reverse harem series. Definitely recommended by me.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *
