Will it be an appealing since its a new genre? Will I like it? Just read this review till the end and find out. This is the first book written by these two author's, Charlie Hart and Chantel Seabrook and the start of a new series.

This is the first book written by these two author's, Charlie Hart and Chantel Seabrook and the start of a new series. I can't deny that I was nervous but being a bookworm I knew that I had to read it. The Wife Lottery: Fallon is the first book from this series and focus on the lifes of Tia and Fallon. Tia is on the run and her only hope it to find sanctuary in wild north. But that comes with a price, her life but she's not worried. She needs to choose, from a vast list of men's 6 to become hers and she will become theirs but that will only happen if they are called in the lottery ticket. How does that sounds? She grew up in a healthy family, full of luxury but the rules were insane. She was always a wild girl and she can't be tamed so... Fallon is one of the chosen to become a protector and partner for Tia. He's a man used to have control over everything but one look at Tia and he's a goner. Oh my lord... What the hell happened? This was not what I thought it would be. It was even better. I was worried because I didn't knew this genre but I'm super happy to had read it. The plot is amazing, super engaging, with some ups and downs and amazing hot stuff. They kept coming, better and better. The interation between the characters is intense, raw, different. I'm overwhelmed. The way the story progressed left me anxious and sometimes scared, but that's the beauty of it. A story that can hook me up from the beginning is a winner. And of course, being greedy like I am, I want more. And seriously girls... Why torture me like that? Give me book 2 soon because my mind keeps working... Lol I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    I’m going to go ahead and rate this entire series now that I’ve finished it. My short opinion: it was kinda disappointing Now for my long opinion: The story starts out really good. Not great but you feel the potential for it to be amazing. And then it goes downhill. As always here are my pros and cons. Con 1) The MMMFMMM relationship, I love reverse harem but only if it’s done correctly. I have to believe that the men are willing to share their women between them. And in order for this to happen I’m going to go ahead and rate this entire series now that I’ve finished it. My short opinion: it was kinda disappointing Now for my long opinion: The story starts out really good. Not great but you feel the potential for it to be amazing. And then it goes downhill. As always here are my pros and cons. Con 1) The MMMFMMM relationship, I love reverse harem but only if it’s done correctly. I have to believe that the men are willing to share their women between them. And in order for this to happen the men have to be connected without the women involved.They can be related, both alien, magically connected, I don’t care how they’re connected so long as they are. This is because men are by nature possessive, and that’s what makes them sexy, so to make sure that the men are still possessive while simultaneously ok with sharing their women the story has to give the reader a reason why they’re ok sharing. This story didn’t. All the men were randomly selected. And therefore have no connection with each other whatsoever. The reason they’re ok with each other is just that they won the lottery and love Tia. The power of P***y and love isn’t a good enough excuse for men to be ok with touching D’s (or giving oral to a women while another guy is going at it from behind on the same women). It’s just not. So while I was reading this all I got was a homosexual vibe every time the guys interacted with each other. Con 2) Tia. Tia was the weakest most pathetic women I’ve ever read. The entire time she just kept acting pitiful, blaming her self for stuff that was clearly not her fault so one of her husbands can coddle her and finding some way to turn the attention onto her no matter the situation. But by far the worst thing about her is that she’s selfish and self centered. Her husbands are grossly sappy with her and so p***y whipped it’s not even funny, but she doesn’t give them even 1/10th the attention they give her. Sure she’s willing to sleep with them every second she gets but the second an opportunity comes up for her to prove or show her love for them she up and screws another husband instead. Every time she felt bad she used sex to make her feel good; even if it wasn’t an appropriate time to have sex. At one point one of her husbands is taken and tortured and she sees the results of his torture, but instead of staying by his side like a loving wife she goes home and has sex with another husband because “she can’t handle the pain & guilt.” Yet she has no problem making them constantly feel guilty over the smallest things and always having to walk on egg shells around her.(absolutely fucking self-centered).I honestly felt like her men were too good for her. Con 3) Character Development: Out of the 7 main characters in this book only 1 of them had any sort of development. Banks. He changed and eventually became more open and warmed up to the others after his cold hearted scientist introduction. But everyone else literally stayed the same in character only they got more and more sappy about their love for Tia. Tia on the other hand just got more self centered and over dramatic on the irrelevant stuff that bothered her. This was mostly due to the author using sex as a tool for character development. Literally all Tia had to do to get 6 men to fall in love with her was have an orgy with them. That’s it. She sleeps with them once and all of a sudden they all believe that she’s this (insert every single sappy love adjective you can think of), none of which can be discovered/developed through an orgy. All in all this story was just grossly over dramatic half the time when there wasn’t a sex scene and uncomfortable/dirty in a bad way when there was a sex scene. For a series that actually knows how to tell a RH story well please check out the Kit Davenport series by Tate James, The Dark Side books by Kristy Cunning, or Just Her Luck by Jannette Lynn are 5+ stars worthy!!!

When her millionaire father tries to sell her off to the highest bidder, Tia knows shes in trouble. The man fated to be her husband is a cruel, cold man who will try and own her soul as well as her body. Fortunately for Tia, Alaska has become a safe haven for women but unfortunately it has one downside... If you're a healthy, childbearing woman your name will be automatically entered into a lottery where 6 men will be chosen to be your future husbands, whether you like it or not. With no other viable options left, Tia escapes to Alaska where she's married off to 6 very different men. What she didn't expect was to fall in love with the 6 strangers that she was married off to. This book was definitely a pleasant surprise. The story line was well thought out and the characters were incredibly enjoyable. Tia was a refreshing heroine because even though she goes into her marriages a virgin, she doesn't feel shy about taking what she wants. I'm sick of virgin heroines who are so docile they wait anxiously for the man to make the first move. That's not a reflection of real life! Lots of women know what they want and are willing to make the move to get it. I can't wait to read the next in this series. I have a feeling I won't be putting my Kindle down for a while.

    WOW this book by Charlie Hart and C M Seabrook is fantastic entertainment. I fell in love with Fallon instantly because after all this is his book in the series so he is featured. The Wife Lottery was a captivating and unique story book written by two fantastic authors. This book is fascinating in that it refers to the shortage of women in the world.

I literally fell asleep with about 30 minutes left in this book so I finished it with my first cup of coffee this AM. It's that good. As Tia decides she is not the woman for all these wonderful guys and sheaks out of the house in the middle of the night and a big black truck drives to a stop where she is but when the occupants start toward her and one speaks she realizes it's not her husbands. As leering comments catch her ears she runs but will she be able to make it to safety. I can't wait to read Book 2 which is Giles story. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary ARC of this book.

    Why oh why do author’s keep on finishing books on a cliff hanger - it doesn’t make me want to rush out and buy the next one to see what happens. It actually annoys me so I refuse to get anymore.

    It was okay. I know one character well, but the rest are a blur. Some I get superficially, but so many 2d characters is frustrating. Hopefully book two will be a bit more illuminating.

The set-up is creative, unique, and captivating - in a world where women are becoming more and more rare, a woman who can bear children is worth any price and is the highest prize worth fighting for. Alaska is faring a bit better than the rest of the world, and they have set up a lottery system where young women are married to six men, each of whom has paid a hefty price to enter the lottery for her hand and are bound by honor and by law to protect her and care for her, no matter what. Tia is a strong woman, fleeing from her father's cruelty, determined to have at least some say in her future. She's partnered up with six men, and this first book focuses on the true leader of the group, Fallon. Each of the men are introduced in this book, but we learn a lot more about Fallon as this book alternates between his and Tia's POVs. As expected with a six-part series, this ends on a cliffhanger. The story is complex and multi-layered, and told in a truly spellbinding manner. The issues that are presented in this book look like they'll be woven throughout the series, presumably as each subsequent book focuses on a different one of Tia's husbands. The dystopian world is exquisitely detailed, familiar yet hauntingly different. I'm very much looking forward to reading the remaining books in this series. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

    The Wife Lottery is the first book in the Men in Alaska series, a new reverse harem book. Tia has a grim past that has led her to being a bride for six men in Alaska. This is the beginning of their romance, of getting to know who these six men are, getting used to her new world, and trying to navigate her future around her past. Will six men be able to keep her protected, cared for, and loved? This book was so interesting and really kept me turning pages!

I loved the world that Ms. Hart and Ms. Seabrook created - a near future world of ten men for every woman in the population, a scary time for women and where men can only hope to find a bride through a lottery. Tia seemed like a big mix of being extremely brave and bold to being scared and stubborn. I love the glimpse into each of her relationships with her six men, and I loved getting to read some of Fallen’s point of view. He seemed like he had a lot of heartache but also held a lot of hope, and I really liked him. I will say, I was a little surprised by the ending, but I look forward to reading more about this group of seven. The hurdles they need to overcome, how her past might catch up with them, and how love could triumph over all are just a few aspects that I look forward to reading in future books!

    «I run a hand over the curve of her cheek, and when she flinches, trying to pull back, I don’t let her. She doesn’t seem to understand that I know what she needs.» That lovely quote was from Fallon, our main love interest. Yes, I said main love interest. This book can barely classify itself as RH. Yeah, she might be married to six men, but the book sure doesn't act like it. The only love interest who has any personality developed, or does anything of note, is Fallon. «Oh, I didn't follow Fallon «I run a hand over the curve of her cheek, and when she flinches, trying to pull back, I don’t let her.

Yeah, she might be married to six men, but the book sure doesn't act like it. The only love interest who has any personality developed, or does anything of note, is Fallon. «Oh, I didn't follow Fallon's rules», «I only wanted to fuck Fallon», «I only think of Fallon when I have a weird shower masturbation scene». Fallon, Fallon, Fallon. Now I'm normally down for some hot alpha males, but this wasn't that. No, this was a straight up toxic semi-emotionally-abusive relationship. Was this addressed in the book? Hah, of course not, silly ! Because Fallon is perfect and hot and sexy and... oh wait Fallon's a controlling, misogynistic little bitch. « Why is it so hard for you [Hypatia] to do as I say? » «She’s just too stubborn to follow my rules» « I think about going after her. Arguing with her until she stops acting so damn stubborn » Hypatia's defining features are apparently her failure as a housewife and her stubbornness in not following Fallon's 'rules'. Not anyone else's rules, just Fallon’s. And they're not up for debate. What's Fallon's oh-so-important number one rule, you may ask? Don't leave the house (without one her husbands of course, but good luck finding one whose willing to !) Yep. Our fair lady Hypatia isn't allowed a key to her own house. She's locked inside. To do chores and other housewive-y things. But you see, « The other guys give me their key cards, let me out of the house. They trust me. » Wow such nice guys, allowing her to leave the house. :O Now all this bullshit isn't entirely Fallon's fault, oh no. Because you see in Alaska the male-female ratio is 6 to 1. This means women are highly coveted in society, and forced to marry more than one man. Yep, forced. Because if they want to get married, they don't get to choose who to. they have to enter the 'lottery', where they get married off to six of the men who can afford a lottery ticket. You better hope you they're decent human beings, because divorce is illegal too ! Obviously contraception is illegal because, they need babies ! Specifically, female babies. The only problem is the maternal mortality rate is EXTREMELY HIGH ! Especially when carrying a female baby. What a time to be a woman, eh ? You see, in unspecified-time-in-the-future Alaska, women don't have rights. Their only jobs are to breed and be good little housewives. Unfortunately for our MC, she isn't a particularly good housewife. This isn't a problem though; she just gives Fallon a blow job and he does the cleaning for her. You could be forgiven for thinking that perhaps this misogyny is the main adversary for our MC in this story, but sorry, it isn't. No, the main problem in this world in the lack of babies (come on women, try harder !), or by the end (view spoiler)[her father trying to track her down and marry her off to someone else. (hide spoiler)] The whole sexism thing isn’t once properly addressed or criticised. Oh, and one of her husband’s gifts her a vibrator. I get that she may be in need of a little bit of self-lovin' from time-to-time, but girl you have SIX husbands. And you haven't even fucked them all yet ! Overall this shittier version of the Handmaid's Tale made me want to smash my face in, and also quite possibly, my Kindle. I have absolutely zero idea how I finished the entire book. Definitely not reading the next one, sorry.

    Husband #1 - Fallon This reverse harem series is set in a futuristic world of the USA where it is hard for a woman to get pregnant and there are more men in the world than females. Alaska is also the only place where the majority of woman are still treated with decency and like normal human beings for the most part.

Alaska is also the only place where the majority of woman are still treated with decency and like normal human beings for the most part. Tia was brought up in a strict household and so when she is about to be married off to a man just as bad as her father, she escapes and hides in a boat. She also enters herself into The Wife Lottery. She is bid on and ends up winning not one, nor two but six husbands. They all care for her in a way, she hasn't been loved before. Can Tia keep her secret from coming out? Just as Tia starts to enjoy her life, her secret comes back to bite her in the butt as her father and fiance to be have made Missing posters of her and are asking for her back with a reward. This book also had romantic suspense and edgy side as some men on the island of Alaska aren't as nice as her husband and take females for their own pleasure and then toss them out as rubbish the next day. What happens when Tia is captured and kidnapped? Can her six husbands save her from whatever dangers will come next? This book does end on a cliffhanger and was a great read. I really enjoyed this Reverse Harem as it went back to the roots of what a real Reverse Harem story is - the ideas of getting to know each other and the relationship-building rather than just sex with multiple men. I am now looking forward to reading the next books in this series as I also enjoy Frankie Love and Chantel Seabrook as authors.

But she grew on me and i kind of like her now. Even tho she makes fucking stupid decisions and choices... gaah that makes me go crazy On to the next one👍

Fleeing from her father and trying to have a choice in her future Tia heads to Alaska and enters the Wife Lottery. Her husbands are all different in their own way but united in keeping Tia safe. Though each of her husbands are introduced this book mainly focuses on Tia and Fallon, her bush pilot husband. I loved Fallon!! Brooding and intense Fallon has his own reasons for entering the lottery. Tia stirs a protectiveness in him unlike anything he's ever felt and sharing his new wife isn't as easy as he thought it might be. Tia isn't a sweet and submissive housewife and this stubborn pilot has met his match in Tia. I enjoyed the multilayered and complex characters presented in this story. The introductions to each of the husbands left me eagerly anticipating each of their stories. The alternating POVs gave insight into how Fallon and Tia each deal with their new marriage. I look forward to seeing how this family learns to work together and deals with the issues they face as they become one. The Wife Lottery is a fantastic beginning to an intriguing and promising new series!

    A dystopian world were men far out number the women. In the continental US, women are bought and sold by the wealthy. Polyandry is the norm for most the rest of the world.

The lottery works by men who are able, buy tickets for a specific women and six are chosen. The 7 are bound in marriage. To protect and provide for their wife and for each child born a bonus, and a girl child, ensures the mother freedom and protection. Goods story and interesting characters. This is a serial and does end in a cliffhanger. The story is told by Tia and Tallon, the alpha of her men, a self appointed leader. Each book will be told by a different man. Normally I don't like these types of books, I do like this author so was willing to give it a chance. Really liked this book, so I have preorder the books that are available. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    I picked up this book bc I saw it in the sci-fi section on amazon. I don’t really see it as sci-fi but it is a dystopian so there you go. So one bride and six men. In this world the population is falling apart and since women are rare there is a greater chance in pregnancy with six Husbands. Just go with me. Only the middle to upper middle class can have a wife. So obviously there will be ineligible bachelors I picked this up bc I thought it was smut.

I guess it kind of is but i found some parts really slow. The heroine marries within the first few pages and no one has sex with her? Come on! Anyhow. It was very entertaining. I found it odd that it’s dual POV so I assume each book will be one of the husbands? They are all together so don’t think each book is a standalone. Not sure. But I’ll continue the series for now.

    Tia has only one thing on her mind, escape at all cost! She was her father's protégé and as long as she did what he expected including marrying the man of his decision, everything would be ok. Tia could not see herself doing that. Being a human guinea pig being pricked and poked a girl can take so much so she cut her losses and ran especially when her father sold her to Lawson someone she loathe. Taking a chance she made her way to Alaska a state where women were safe and free. Now all she had t Tia has only one thing on her mind, escape at all cost!

Taking a chance she made her way to Alaska a state where women were safe and free. Now all she had to do was make it through the lottery and may six men. At least she made this decision but will she be able to live with it?

    Well it is a cliffhanger, but it was free so I got what I paid for. I hated the h, she is tstl but has studied molecular genetics, but she can't run a dishwasher, she can clean 7 bathrooms in 1 hour, but can't cook. The men have paid a huge amount of money to enter the lottery, but she doesn't care, she decides she'll leave. There is a grumpy H, but he too becomes ridiculous. He enters the lottery, takes her virginity, then gets wildly jealous when she's around the other men. He has a great name Well it is a cliffhanger, but it was free so I got what I paid for.

But here's the thing, while it's a no from me, others have rated this series very highly. Maybe my expectations are too high?

    The story was off to a good start. I've read a few RH books with a similar dystopian setting, where there was a shortage of women, but I've honestly never seen one with a similar approach. There was an honest to God lottery here, and for some reason, despite the name of the book being literary The Wife lottery, it surprised me. I liked that. And I liked that the males where chosen randomly, because usually there is already a formed unit the female enters into, so it was nice to see something dif The story was off to a good start.

And I liked that the males where chosen randomly, because usually there is already a formed unit the female enters into, so it was nice to see something different. What I did not like was how this book was mostly centered around one specific male. I understand that he had the hardest time adjusting to their situation, but we could have gone differently about the whole thing. The ultimate was that I wanted to get to know all the men, even if just a little, verses getting to know just one. What downgraded this book for me from four starts to three was heroine's actions at the end. There was no reason behind it. Tia fully let fear drive her and made unreasonable, completely unprovoked decisions based on...what? A poster? I mean, she knew that people would be looking for her, it was a given. But she did not get any indication that anyone has figured out where or who she was. No one threatened her, no one even hinted on knowing who she really was. She just saw a poster (that could have been spread throughout the world for all she knew) and acted. Foolishly. I expected better of her.

    It was just alright for me. I don't identify with the main character much. It might have helped if we'd seen more of her struggle to get to Alaska. She's a bit annoying to me. The book also ends in a cliffhanger (for anyone who hates those) be prepared to read Book 2 immediately. Not bad but not fantastic either. It was just alright for me.

    Was skimming and scanning, then paused for a while, all to avoid another DNF. I caved. It was just too... something. I like RH, love books set in Alaska, and really liked the dystopian angle and the wife lottery part. That all added a star. It just wasn't sticking well. And I hadn't realized there's another 4?5? Books in the series. Was skimming and scanning, then paused for a while, all to avoid another DNF. I caved. It was just too... something.

    Dnf at 34% So bored. Tia's character doesn't fit her story and sheltered upbringing IMO. This book only focuses on Tia and 1 of the men, which I don't like. She's married to six so I want everyone's pov. Dnf at 34% So bored. Tia's character doesn't fit her story and sheltered upbringing IMO.

    3.75 Stars MAJOR SPOILERS THROUGHOUT: I really liked this book. It was a good start to the series and it definitely laid the groundwork for the future installments. I thought that the pacing was spot on. I never felt bored or felt like things were being rushed. I thought that the idea for the story was very original, yet simple enough to not be confusing. When I heard that only 10% of the population was women, I almost fell out of my chair in shock. It really made me wonder why this happened 3.75 Stars MAJOR SPOILERS THROUGHOUT: I really liked this book. It was a good start to the series and it definitely laid the groundwork for the future installments. I thought that the pacing was spot on. I never felt bored or felt like things were being rushed. I thought that the idea for the story was very original, yet simple enough to not be confusing. When I heard that only 10% of the population was women, I almost fell out of my chair in shock. It really made me wonder why this happened and I felt like Charlie Hart did a good job of setting that up. When I heard about what the men are doing to the females that are left, I was appalled and disgusted. I felt like the author did a really great job of making me feel the horror of what the world had come to and hate the situation the females are in. I honestly don't know how I feel about Tia. I feel bad for the situation she was in and I can't imagine growing up in her shoes. There were a lot of hints and foreshadowing about what happened to her while she was growing up and I felt really bad for her. I didn't have any problems with Tia while reading in her point of view... until the end. I felt like she made a STUPID decision and I hate to think of what will happen in the future installments as a result. I found Fallon to be really controlling, but not enough to completely turn me off to his character. If I were in his position, I can't say that I wouldn't act the same way. It is obvious that something happened in his life to make him the way he is and I am really interested to find out what. I feel like he made an effort to open himself up and I really do feel like he was trying to be less controlling. I just wish that Tia would have given him the chance to prove that. As for the other guys... I like them. Obviously, they weren't the main focus of this book, but Charlie Hart did manage to give me a little insight into each of them. I am excited to read their individual books and get their point of views. Salinger does make me nervous with these mysterious phone calls he is getting. It makes me wonder what is going on with him. I know it can't be good. I felt like Banks was kind of quiet but after the office scene between him and Tia, I can understand why. I would totally be lying if I didn't say I was excited to get his book after that scene. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Tia running away at the end did piss me off and that is why I lowered my rating. I felt like what she did was really stupid and she obviously hadn't thought things through. I hope that her judgement improves in the future installments. I will be continuing the series with The Wife Protectors: Giles .
