What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

Once upon a time a wolf took everything away from me. 
I’m here to return the favor… 

When the Big Bad Wolf and his pack of witch hunters murdered my family, I made a deal with the Devil in exchange for revenge.

Giving him my soul was the easy part.

Surviving Everafter Academy… now that deserves a medal.

I’m not the Red Riding Hood everyone thinks I am. I’m Ravyn, the witch with a deep, dark secret, and I’m only at this school to hunt down my family’s killer. If pretty boys Erik, Christopher, and Gideon think they can make my life hell just because I’m different, they’re in for a surprise.

I’m going to make these Prince Charmings regret the day they ever wronged me.

Everything I do is chaos. Everything I touch turns to darkness. They can call me a monster because that’s exactly what I am.

My heart isn’t meant to be won over or broken. It’s meant to be feared.

With a trio of jealous princesses determined to put a hex on me, a magical school full of ‘good’ fairy tale creatures that despise my kind, secrets galore, and a headmaster whose dark desires rival my own, I’m here to prove that even villains deserve their happily ever after.

Mine just involves bloodshed, blackmail, and sweet sinister revenge.

What can I say? I’m a Dark Witch. It’s in my nature.

Now sit back and let me tell you how fairytales REALLY go. It all starts with an altar…

Everafter Academy is a Dark Reverse Harem Romance. Each fairytale creature has been modernized and thrown into a world of magic, depravity, and allure, and Ravyn will never choose which path—or man—she truly wants. Why choose when she can have them all? 

Themes: bully, forbidden romance, student/teacher, D/s relationship
Genres: reverse harem, academy, fantasy, fairytale
Heat Level: Scorching-hot, rough, consensual scenes that are for 18+ only.

Thoughts on Once Upon A Wolf

Dark and beautiful

There is something beautiful about pain, isn’t there? At least when you are a darkblood hunting for those that killed her family. So goes a major plot point of this engrossing novel. Part academy thriller and all fantastical paranormal adventure, this twists and turns – and makes you root for the bad guy.


  • Dark, but BDSM dark, not emotionally manipulative dark.
  • New world.
  • Familiar princes and princesses
  • Trust is a four letter word in this world.
  • Hot!


  • Some kinks may not be for everybody; pay attention to trigger warnings.
  • Who can you trust?

4 out of 5 Stars

There is something so appealing about a book that delves into the inner working of sexual kinks – and makes no apology for it. This novel is ripe with taboo, from BDSM to a Teacher/Student romance, and it’s deliciously sub-verse. In this world, the Devil is in the details. Free on KU.
