THIEF (Sterling Falls Book 1) by S. Massery
Release Date: January 20th, 2022
Genre/Tropes: Dark gothic reverse harem romance


I wasn’t supposed to be at Olympus that night.

And I definitely wasn’t supposed to witness a murder – or be caught by the killers.

Hades, Apollo, and Ares run the mysterious, masked fight club, and they wield more power in this town than I could dream of holding. They destroy my life with one decree: Kora Sinclair doesn’t exist.

Sterling Falls was my chance to start over, but one night derails everything.

My scholarship, my job – gone.

I could run home, but giving up my dreams isn’t an option.

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

When I can’t repay my debt to an unforgiving man, he gives me a choice. I can steal Hades’ mask, or he can take what I owe from my flesh.

But if I do, there’s no turning back. More than the fear of his threats, revenge drives my decision. I need to steal the mask.

After all, who better to become a thief than the girl they tried to erase?

My mind is still reeling from this book. I’m not even sure where the hell to begin with this review. This slow burn reverse harem was good…so damn good! I was super intrigued with the blurb. I loved how the author tied it all in with Greek mythology. Let me just tell you this book did not disappoint…not one bit. It was fast paced, suspenseful and jaw dropping with a big old dose of dark and twisted.

Kora headed off to Sterling Falls University with high hopes of starting fresh after something super shitty happened to her involving her POS ex boyfriend. With a fantastic scholarship and her best friend on campus, what could go wrong? Well you know the old saying…wrong place at the wrong time? Kora heads out one night to check out the elusive club Olympus but sees something she definitely shouldn’t have and now she has to pay. The price? Her existence.

“I came to experience Olympus, and now I’m standing before the gods who rule it.”

Hades aka Jace, Ares aka Wolfe and Apollo run Olympus and Sterling Falls. One night while they were doing a job, they had an unwelcome and unwanted witness. Kora Sinclair has to pay. They take away everything from her in the hopes that she will tuck tail and leave. But they’ve underestimated what she’ll do to survive. With her back against the wall, she takes a loan out from a cruel gang leader that she can’t repay so he gives her a way out. The Hades mask in exchange for a debt paid.

“It’s clear that stealing the mask isn’t just an act against Hades – it’s against all of them.”

There is so much packed into this book. Kora owes a huge debt to Kronos but what will happen if she can’t deliver Hades Mask? Jace, Wolfe and Apollo made her the invisible girl but after she comes back to Olympus, the game changes. Now they will do anything to protect her. The twists and turns just kept coming and I couldn’t get enough! I love Kora but man…she makes some shitty decisions. I know at times she feels like she has no other choice but it still made me want to scream at my kindle. I’m absolutely obsessed with the gods…especially Wolfe. He is by far my favorite, at least for now. I feel like there is something fishy about Kora’s best friend but I guess we will see. I can’t wait to see what the author has in store for the next book. I loved this book so much but fair warning the cliffhangers…yes, there is more than one…are crazy insane!

“There are no such things as knights in shining armor. No one is coming.”
