Do Not Read This Book:
If you do not wish to read about hard topics, or you’re under the age of 18. If you want a feel-good, sexy read, this is NOT the book for you. One of Many is part dark romance, part suspense thriller, and is a gritty, harrowing tale about finding love in the darkest of places. Read at your own risk. Might contain triggers.


When we had nothing, The Community gave us everything. When we were lost, Father Weston welcomed us home. For the last five years, we’ve been preparing for the world to end in flames. Then I was Chosen to join the other wives in the big house on the hill. And in that house, I would learn the truth.

There is no damnation. I am no savior. And the only way out of this cult is to trust the one person I’ve been forbidden to talk to. Kiev, Father Weston’s son. But Kiev only wants one thing from me, and I must prove to him I’m not one of many blindly following his father’s lies.

If I don’t, I won’t make it out of here alive.


My father ruined my life. Took everything from me and never looked back. For years, I’ve been waiting to strike, to pull his false empire from under his feet and watch him burn.

Then he chooses her as his newest Virgin Bride. She’s special to him, held in higher regard, presented to the entire community as a symbol of hope, a symbol to make them keep buying his lies.

My father took everything from me. Now it’s time I take everything from him. And I’m starting with her.


This book focuses on Audrey and the revelation that she has been chosen to be the next ‘bride’ of Father Weston. He’s a polygamist and a creepy old dude. He has this fantasy in his head that he will lead his people to salvation and that he has to take many wives in order to fulfil that fantasy/prophecy. It was really bizarre to read those elements because I honestly have no idea how he managed to suck in so many people. He devised this elaborate and messed up world. It is scary to think that this happens in the real world too.

Kiev is the son of Father Weston but he is nothing like him in all the ways that count. He’s caring and he truly wants to destroy the community. He also wants to claim Audrey for himself. Right from the very beginning of this book, I knew that Kiev would be Audrey’s downfall and salvation all in one and throughout this book I was right. I love seeing them together because they gave each other hope that things might just be okay in the end.

Audrey realises that things are not the way it should be, deep down she’s always known that but didn’t want to accept it which is why she sees Kiev as her salvation. Along the way she also falls in love with him.

There are elements in this book that will make you feel sick but once you get throught those parts, you get to the parts that show you a real happy ever after does exist.

I love this read, I devoured this book in an hour, reading as fast as I could so I lose myself in a world of a cult. It doesn’t look like it has been written by two authors, it was seamless and flowed and I’m just in awe of how I haven’t read anything by these two authors in the past. I will be sure to rectify that as soon as I can.

4 stars!
