Summary

Never make a deal with a devil.

Steve had experience when it came to waking up with hangovers. Being attacked by kobolds? Not so much. After rousing in the middle of a monster-filled forest, he was sure his life was over. That was until he was saved by a fire-wielding angel who was anything but human. Now Steve finds himself a temporary guest on a small run-down farm filled with monster girls who need his help.

None more so than the canine beauty responsible for saving his skin.

In a month, her freedom is forfeit, unless she can somehow turn her failing farm around. It’s a challenge Steve is all too happy to accept, especially if it means getting to test out his strange new powers and mingle with the stunning monster girl livestock who can’t seem to take their eyes off him.

This farm needs a hero, and Steve will be damned if he doesn’t take up the role. He’s no longer just an ordinary IT manager; he’s now the savior these gorgeous women need.

Harem Farm contains smoking-hot monster girls, scenes that are more than just raunchy, and some lovely, bloody violence. Don’t say you weren’t told!

You know what it is, it knows what it is :)

Basic and enjoyable. probably not gonna win an award but cheerful enough distraction.

Main char is not the DUDEBRO that most of them end up and the overall story is nice.

Ok, but predictable with slightly annoying MC

Fair warning, some spoilers may be used as examples.

For the most part, this is an okay story, but there were times when the MC annoyed the heck out of me. One of the main problems is that David Aries uses an easy-to-identify-villain-trope with "muh slavery" and "muh racism" and of course every bad guy or person you're supposed to dislike doesn't like monster girls or think they're inferior to humans. Sigh.

I'm not here to say racism or slavery are good things, but it's overdone isekai trope for, as I said, "This character's obviously a bad guy." Still, despite this, MC annoyed me with his constant declarations that everyone should love monster girls and how could people in this world be so stupid to believe they're inferior. He admits his love of monster girls is a fetish and he admits that even on Earth that the vast majority of people would not share his fetish, yet he runs around declaring that everyone on this strange world he's been teleported to should love monster girls like he does. It just felt annoying, like he ignored his own counterargument to his declarations, specifically that even on Earth there aren't people into monster girl fetish.

This also comes off as lacking any nuance. For example, MC learns from the monster girls that at one time the demi-beasts were actually wild and dangerous creatures without civilization until someone came along to teach them. Or at least, according to one belief of their, the monster-creatures', ancient origins. In other words, it opens up grounds for MC to consider the possibility that at one time humans and demi-beasts may have had a hostile past with humanity coming out on top in the end and thus, humanity still harbors resentment. Instead, David Aries heavy hands it with the story only being told from the monster girl side and MC only embracing their viewpoint because he can't think past his Object P.

With that said, the other annoying thing about the MC is that as usual for this genre, he spouts a lot of faux-bravado that the author then uses plot armor to back up. I hate that. I seriously do. While I'm not saying he has to kowtow to people or the bad guy, he rarely did two smart things, that even most beginner to moderate gamers or even geeks, comic book readers, pop-culture connoisseurs would do, he never tries to figure out his powers. He just clumsily moves about waiting for his power to randomly decide on its own to help him out. Yes, he gets a random power up at a pivotal point in the story just because the author wanted him to at that time. Two, he rarely thought beyond the current situation until the author forced him to.

Also, faux-bravado is often written with the idea that the MC is not a wimp, but it still comes off as annoying faux-bravado when the MC's mouth is just causing him and everyone else extra problems. For example, he knows this world has legal slavery and mistreatment of demi-beasts, yet he goes around opening his mouth, challenging people like he has any actual power to do something about it and often makes the situation worse for himself and those monster girls with him. (This gets way worse in book two which I'll review on KU when I'm done.) So, overall, MC's running off at the mouth like this just comes off as empty. As someone who grew up in bad neighborhoods, I can tell you that the person who ran their mouth the most was the least likely to be the person who actually did anything about it, backed up their crap talk in the end.

There were other things like his being adverse to marriage for some strange reason. Another character annoyed me with her being adverse to getting pregnant, if it were just her, fine, but she was setting up rules that the other women couldn't get pregnant either. Just because it was her property. No, I don't have a pregnancy or a breeding fetish. It was just annoying. I could see if she gave a reason and if MC gave a reason about marriage, but it was just-because-I-said-so declarations.

There were other things often found in the harem genre as well such as the obligatory orgy scene. Characters going obligatorily bisexual for said scene and others despite one character being entirely standoffish and shy about anything sex-related, but I guess the author would argue, that the shy character acted like a freak in bed so that was justification. The usual female characters become sex-obsessed once MC sticks Object P in their Slot V's. I get it, smut is part of the package, but I only really found one scene interesting, but it lost it's interesting aspect once it turned into an orgy. Sigh.

Lastly, the plot could have been resolved if one character wasn't acting entirely contradictory to their beliefs the entire time. I imagine she was supposed to be the tsundere type who had entirely too much Tsun and not enough dere (even still going on in book 2, but I'll get to that in a KU review when I'm done). She resolves the entire problem in the end despite everyone's struggles. Not only that, the MC as I said never considers figuring out his powers to see if it would offer a counter ability to the, let's call it a spell that trapped him and another character in their predicament. His power seemed to like to hand him OPesque skills when his power felt, yes I said felt because even the MC questions if his power is sentient, to give him the power upon MC's proper request for it. So, he could have asked for a plant growing power, slave spell breaking power, etc. You get the point. To be fair, it wasn't that easy. Sometimes he'd prompt his power for a response and it'd just ignore him, which takes me back to him never taking the time to figure out his power. Oh, but he had ample time to have sex every night despite a dead line coming that would cause him and another character their lives.

With that said, the story is "ok" if you're looking for a predictable plot, predictable problems with predictable answers and the usual things you find in harem stories. As I said the usual obsessed-with-sex female characters who end up in the obligatory orgy scene without one of them having significant, put-her-foot-down objections to everyone expecting her to just fall into temporary bisexual activity, etc.

not the same as others.

The title made my eyes roll. I think all the inde writers have meetings on what they are gonna put out. As the title is similar to others its actually a different book. pretty good book too. But to me the female narration did the fifth star for me. Yes, the author did write it pretty good but she got it perfect. Had me in giggles with her voices.

But the story is well done. Well paced. And the dialog is good. OH, and the MC isn't a wimp.

Write a amount of cringe

like the girls, MC IS the idot the reviews said he is Being constantly surprised by the same facts repeated to him over and over, author is clearly of the "woke" Persuasion but he doesn't push it too hard in this series. Can't wait to listen to the rest of the books hope they Don't Pull a switcheroo and go for a woke.

Pure Entertainment

If you pick this book up expecting the next Game of Thrones then you need a revision on the English Language. But what I can say is I really enjoyed this book. It was a well written, fun, story that has some extremely enjoyable bedroom scenes. It doesn't rush into the harem aspect and neither does it take itself too seriously. I was pleasantly surprised and never found myself rolling my eyes at how unbelievable or ridiculous it was. For the subject matter, it's pretty believable and delivers in spades. Or produce.

Good fun turn off your brain smutty smut.

The review subject line says it all, there's no big complex subtle plotlines here. Nah, what you'll enjoy or not is modern equivalent of x-rated pulp fictions of yester years. Although the actual most comparable thing is probably 80-90s saturday morning cartoons story-structure wise.

decent story

pretty good narrators average story. some moments of stupidity from the main character. and the author does that annoying thing that some of these Harem authors do when they have to overly reassure the girls about the same insecurities over and over again I mean a little bit is fine but it starts to get annoying after a while. still, a decent listen

Annoying Exaggerated Troupes

First, I want to say I have read all 3 books in the series (sometimes I hate being a completionist). Its starts out decent for a fantasy harem book. However, over the course of the 3 books the character just become more exaggerated troupes to the point of being annoying. There is some effort for character development, but it comes off poorly. In addition, the characters are often written badly and/or are intentionally written as too stupid to live. On a plus side there are some interesting taboo kinks that are explored n the story.

Narration
Most of the characters have strong stereotypical accents/behaviors (i.e. Vally Girl, Old Lady, Russian, etc. ). This might have been interesting if the characters where written better, but it just comes off as annoying and lazy.

Final Advice
Keep looking... there are lots of other good Harem Fantasy books out there.
