I’ve lost my family, my wealth, and the place I called home for the past five years.
Now I’ve moved back to where it all began…
With the guys I thought I’d never see again.
Abel, Ronan, Wells, and Bishop were my friends at one time.
The only girl they would let into their inner circle. 
Now they hate me. 
They think I’m a traitor.
And I don’t know why. 
But I am bound and determined to find out. 
The problem is, there is a super fine line between hate and lust.
What happens when we all cross it?


I picked up Traitor on a whim and I’m glad I did. I was looking for a reverse harem to lose myself in and Traitor delivered.

Traitor follows Lennon as she returns home hoping to make amends with four friends she thought she would never see again. Unfortunately, their reunion isn’t what she expected and has work to do to gain back their trust.

Traitor is set in high school with the characters in their senior year, with one exception. I was mildly annoyed to find out the novel was set in high school, however the characters do not behave like typical high schoolers and there wasn’t a lot of over-the-top high school drama.

Lennon is my favorite kind of character in novels like these. She’s feisty, spunky, and doesn’t back down. She gives as good as she gets, which is necessary when she’s facing off against four headstrong guys.

Traitor ends on a cliffhanger, so I was happy to discover that the sequel releases May 26, 2022.. Traitor feels very much like a first novel since Jude spends her time introducing the characters and mystery without giving readers many answers. Jude gives readers enough angst and information to entice them to come back for the sequel, Thief.

Overall, Traitor is a fun, guilty pleasure reverse harem with enough angst and mystery to keep readers turning the pages.
