What Are Reverse Harem Romance Books?
Plus, 5 Books to Read…
Reverse harem romance novels have a single female character who is surrounded by male characters. There are normally three or more male characters who essentially worship the female character. There doesn’t tend to be any jealousy or fighting over the female, and the men just accept that the female has all of them.
This genre is a spin off of harem romance, where one male character is surrounded by three or more female characters. Reverse harem romance began in anime or manga. Originally, the girl had to choose one of the male characters at the end, but ever since reverse harem became a book genre, the girl doesn’t always have to choose a male at the end. She can have all of the male characters, just like the male character in harem romance is able to have all of the girls and never choose.
The idea that the female character doesn’t have to choose began around 2016, and it quickly became a popular idea. Now, the end of the story can go either way, leaving an extra element of surprise.
The story plots are all different, depending on the author who wrote the novel. Many reverse harem novels are also sci-fi, but some are not. The only aspect that is guaranteed to be the same is the harem part. You can expect the main female character to entertain a group of males wanting her attention in a romantic way.
