Summary

Sleeping Beauty like you’ve never seen her before.

A curse spun of beauty. 

Being abandoned, a jaded Rose learned how to survive at a young age. When she meets four mysterious men, everything begins to spiral out of control. By allowing them into her life, they each fill a void within. But they also bring changes that will rock the foundation of her world.

As the budding relationships grow, Rose learns that everything isn't as it seems. Hidden secrets come to light, impacting the course of her life forever. 

To persevere, Rose must embrace her new destiny. If she doesn't, she could lose everything she holds dear.

Sleeping Beauty meets Rumpelstiltskin in this steamy urban fantasy reverse harem retelling. 

It’s intended for mature readers (18+) due to sexual situations, swearing, and violence.

Great story telling!

Well this is certainly an unusual take on the sleeping beauty fairy take - it is a seriously intruiging tale.
Great collection of characters, but hang on to your hat because the speed of this book is amazing.
Highly recommended.

Once I got into it I was hooked

I received a free audio copy of this book directly from the author for an honest review.

This is actually quite an interesting mix with the MC Rose not knowing exactly what is going on and being fairly naive in a lot of aspects but in others had to grow up early and deal with life’s shit. I would say although not overly detailed it should have a trigger warning or suggestions of triggers. Anyway this is a chaotic (in a good way!) melding of people who just don’t really all get along and as a starting book very interesting way to get to know the characters. The guys are very much different from each other to a point of one you literally want to smack, one is a bit cheeky and one is utterly devoted! It took a little bit to quite get into the swing of the actual story for me but once I got there I was hooked.

Love the concept, enjoyed it!

Enjoyable story for sure, though it moved a little slow for me. I feel that there are exciting things in the series future (there was just too much lead up to it for me). I also found the fmc to be really irritating in her lack of questioning whats going on!
Having said that it was a good listen with some fab steamy bits and I will be listening to the next installment to discover her future! Narrator was fine, story was read fluently and well.

Fabulous start

I’ve had this book in my library for 10 months I have no idea why it took me so long to listen but I’m so glad I did eventually listen to it.
Rose was abandoned when she was young and has learned to look after herself . When she decides to go out one night to an exclusive club her life begins to change . Four men come into her life all claiming to be her mates ,she can’t deal with it and tells them all she needs time. However she doesn’t have time as the Dark wizard is coming for her and she needs to prepare. I really enjoyed listening and loved the bickering between her mates although Eli needs a slap 😂 Lexi Evans narrates perfectly and I’m looking forward to book 2.

Loved this story!

It is like a modern day fairytale with lots of twists and turns. Erin West and Nicole Kelley do a fabulous job with the details of each character and all the plot twists. Rose is this unique character who grows up alone until she meets her four men. Then she starts to realize she needs these men even with all of the hidden twists and turns that she has mentally process. This story is very well written and it hooked me until the end. Props to Lexi Evans for a fantastic performance bringing the characters to life! 💕

sleeping rose

This is an interesting twist on fairy tales that will leave you thinking. Rose is just trying to make a living have a few friends. What she doesn't want is the attention of the men who have decided that she's their mate, whatever that is, because that can't be a real thing right?
This story has some good potential and I find myself intrigued by it and want to know more. I listened to the audiobook and enjoyed it.

Interesting book

I’m not sure how I felt about the book. I like the storyline but I feel as if so many things are missing. I don’t feel any type of Chemistry between her and the guys and I don’t see anything special about her besides being lustful for the men. She’s a virgin but doesn’t act like it. I don’t want to give away too much so I will leave it there. Interesting to see how it plays on the next book. Hopefully I get to see more interaction with her and the men besides lust. Lexi Evans did an amazing job at narrating

Unexpected and good start to series

This book is definitely a building block for the story. We are introduced to Rose who is a very confident woman who seems to be in total control of her life and a little bit of a badass. There are little signs that there is something special about her but nothing that gives it away. Towards the end we finally learn what she is. The men in the book were also being introduced throughout. I actually really enjoy the tiffs between the men and that they all hate each other. They are each different kinds of creatures too (not human). Two seem to be semi-normal and two are total jerks. The tension does not ease at all by the end of this story. I have no idea how they will come together but look forward to seeing it play out!


The only part I was disappointed about was that despite Rose's job, lifestyle, and being abnormally gorgeous, she was a virgin. There isn't any mention of it until its gone and it seems like it was a detail added trying to ease the moral choice of being a stripper for a career but it just didn't fit well to her background for me. I also hated who she did it with and how it happened!


Other than the names used, I couldn't find any connection to any fairy tale so far. This intrigues me and I loved it because it exceeded my expectation. I cant even begin to imagine or predict where book 2 will go. The narrator was pretty good too. I definitely recommend this for RH fans.

A jaded young woman discovers her power

Rose is a girl that beats the crap out of punching bags at the gym. She literally tears them apart. She's tough, gorgeous, and comes from a troubled past. She's not short of self-esteem, but is still surprised when suddenly several men fall deeply for her and claim that she is their "mate." What's even more confusing is that they are are all supernatural beings. I don't want to give anything way, but I'll say that the storyline really drew me in. Being that it's a reverse harem storyline, there are multiple love interests. However, Nicole Kelley and Erin West really pulled of what was unique and special about each of the romantic relationships. The narrator did a great job of helping the listener tell the men apart, by making each voice very specific. She had a sassy young voice that fit the character of Rose very well. I'll definitely be listening to the next book in this series, as Sleeping Rose leaves you at the edge of your seat and wanting more.

*I was given a promotional review copy of this book in exchange for this honest review.

Sleeping Rose

This book is similar to Sleeping Beauty. I had a hard time connecting with any of the characters but will try again and, if necessary, update the review. Lexi Evans did a good job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook and have voluntarily left this review.

A delicious fairytale

This story has it all vampires, werewolves, fae, and other underworld beings. The passion Rose felt was so strong with each of the men who fell for her. What a cool twist to sleeping beauty. I can’t wait to continue the series to find out what happens.

Sleeping Beauty retelling

A very interesting retelling of an old classic sleeping beauty. Rose was a very jaded and hard character with a terrible past. She didn't like letting others in yet she finally does with three sexy men. It took me a bit to get into this book and connect with these characters but once I did I laughed a lot at the antics of the men. They were pretty funny with their fighting. This is a reverse harem and Rose is at the center of it. Even with some fighting the men put this aside to protect Rose who they believe is their mate. I look forward to what else the author will write.
