Devicka is a Void, a rare supernatural that absorbs other‘s powers at the slightest contact of skin-to-skin. With this type of ability, she grew up feared, hated and despised. Her own mother grew to hate her when Devi accidentally stripped her of her power. Sent to a non-supernatural school, she grows up amongst humans until she is called back and is asked to attend Thibault Academy, an elite supernatural academy.
The Four Paragons are the most powerful supes at the academy and they want Devi gone. Render, Hyde, Grit, and Quade grew up fearing what Devi is, so when she shows up, they plan to make her regret ever stepping foot on the grounds of Thibault.
Void earned a lot of unique points with Devi’s power. I’ve never really read a story where a character had this particular ability, so I enjoyed learning about it and seeing it in action. Also, the bullying aspect of the story did not last for long and was much lighter compared to other books in the bully-romance trope. This is also a standalone, so if you don’t have time for a full series, this is definitely a good option.
Read Void if you like the paranormal reverse harem bully romance trope.

Hazel does not count on Ayaz, Trey, and Quinn: the three guys who practically run the school and who also want her gone. However, what they don’t realize is that it will take more than a few insults and pranks to run Hazel out of town.
I cannot recommend Shunned enough! Steffanie Holmes created a world of mystery and intrigue that had me grasping at straws and thoroughly shocked when I realized what was really going on (the plot twist is crazy). Also, Hazel has a backbone of steel which means Trey, Ayaz, and Quinn better watch out because things will not be going their way.
If you’re in the mood for dark paranormal reverse-harem books with bully tropes, I recommend digging into Shunned.
Nora has known about the dark and deadly underworld of supernaturals that haunt the streets of Detroit thanks to her psychic abilities. She has managed to remain invisible to the underworld until one night when she meets a powerful vampire who, ultimately, discovers her gifts. Then there’s that pesky problem where people, especially men, are drawn to Nora (to the point of obsession and violence).
Nora has a lot on her plate as she becomes more and more intertwined with the Underworld and its inhabitants. The question is whether she’ll make it out alive?
Don’t Rush Me is funny. Nora literally friend–zones her harem. It’s amazing. The title basically sums up Nora’s thoughts and feelings. She’s not ready for any kind of relationship, so don’t expect much in the romance department during the first book. If you make it through this, the sequel definitely gets more into that.
As one of the best reverse harem books about a psychic who puts her harem in the friend-zone, I recommend taking a look at Don’t Rush Me.
Keyla is an incorporeal spirit who has been watching over four guys for the past five years or so. This would be considered incredibly creepy if it weren’t for the fact that Keyla fades into nonexistence when she’s away from them for too long.
The guys in question are supernaturals and when they find out that they’ve actually had a fifth roommate this entire time…Well, to say they’re mad would be an understatement. Now, her stalking tendencies can’t be helped as she literally has to stay with them in order to exist, so the fact that they are downright mean to Keyla at times is just wrong.

Read Four Psychos if you like paranormal reverse harem bully romances.

I cannot express how much I enjoyed Wicked Gods. The plotline is unique compared to other books in the reverse-harem genre which made Daisy’s story refreshing and intriguing. I honestly could not put it down. Also, if you like your heroine with a backbone, you got yourself a winner with this one. Daisy is not the type to take shit from anyone which is essential as there are more bullies than friends at the Gifted Academy.
If you love reverse harem books centered on the bully academy trope, Wicked Gods should be the next romance added to your TBR list.
