Haven’t read the previous novels? Check out my reviews of Traitor and Thief.

Everything I thought I knew has been a lie.
Bishop, Wells, Ronan, and Abel no longer believe the worst about me,
And my nights are filled with love from each of them.
But my heart is broken in four pieces,
And I don’t even think they can put it back together.
I’m constantly looking over my shoulder…
Unsure of where to turn or who to believe.
All I know is that I’ve never felt more alone.

Lover is the third book in the Loxley Prep reverse harem series.


Lover is the third and final novel in the Loxley Prep reverse harem series. Lover, like its predecessor, was a quick and spicy read I couldn’t get enough of.

Like I mentioned in my review of Thief, Loxley Prep is the ultimate guilty pleasure read for me. It’s a spicy reverse harem, full of drama, and a plot that doesn’t amount to much because the focus is on the main character and each of the men in the relationship.

Lover is easily the spiciest of the three novels as Lennon settles into her relationship with Ronan, Wells, Abel, and Bishop. These scenes were hot and were easily the best part of the novel. However, Lennon and Bishop’s relationship was the least developed because of the age difference and Bishop being a teacher. I wish Jude would have spent more time on Lennon and Bishop, especially in the school setting.

Lover wraps up too quickly as everything comes to a climatic end. This isn’t really a critic since I wasn’t reading this series for its intricately plotted and realistic mystery. Let’s be honest, The Valiant’s work is unrealistic considering their time at Camp Capitree. But, like I said, I wasn’t reading this series for its plot.

Overall, Lover is a great conclusion to the Loxley Prep series that focuses mostly on Lennon and each of the men in the relationship. Though the novel stumbles with its plot, Jude makes up for it with her spice.
