I knew nothing but the touch of my master until the Magical Authorities killed him and set my world on fire.
Now, I’m a prisoner at an institute stressing students beyond their limits.
I’m a sorceress who can’t access her magic and wanted by wickedly handsome mages who all have their own agenda.
I spent my life following directions. Now I can make my own decisions, I don’t know the right ones. Why is saying ‘no’ so hard?
With the administration judging every action I take and weighing them on their uneven scales of morality, I must come to terms with my darkness to survive and, if I’m lucky, even gain my freedom.
Self studies is a fast burn, reverse harem, dark bully romance with M/M/F and M/F themes. The trilogy is a college-age academy setting, 18+. All three books are written and complete the story. Please be aware there may be triggers, see inside of book for the list.
This paranormal romance deals with the darker parts of human nature and how Aphrodite struggles through waves of hate to become a better version of herself and eventually — hopefully — fit into the society. Having grown up isolated from the world under a strict Master-Slave situation, she knew nothing else until her Master was killed and she got taken to a magical academy to learn to control and use her magic in an approved way. To top it off, every time she used magic, or people used magic around her, her body reacted to it in an unusual way that got her wired up and needing a sexual outlet. What a crazy messed up journey her story takes you to! And I enjoyed every bit of it.
Aphrodite’s character is so well written. Innocence and pure need molded into one. Shameless, but humble. It’s so easy to like her, despite what her fellow students (read prisoners) make of her first appearance. She grabbed eyes left and right and not always in a positive way. She does however encounter several love interests and it becomes messy real quick. Soo messy 😉
I really enjoyed all the different personalities and the whole storyline.
