A heartless SEAL, a simple farmer, a cowardly mafioso, a billionaire tech guru. Why should Dorothy choose just one?

My Uncle Henry vanished on my twenty-first birthday, along with my beloved pug, Toto.

The police have ruled his disappearance a suicide, but they never found a body or any trace of my dog.

But I refuse to accept their ruling because I saw a man enter Uncle Henry’s house that night.

I travel to the end of the earth to track down the man only to discover he’s a Navy SEAL. I soon realize I’m in over my head and can’t trust anyone around me.

A heartless SEAL, a simple farmer, a cowardly mafioso. But they are just the pawns in the wizard’s game.

This billionaire tech guru is the most powerful man in the world, and he is behind my uncle’s disappearance. He will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

Unfortunately, he wants me.

Desiring Dorothy is book 1 of 3 in the Men of Oz series. It is a full-length reverse harem novel with a cliffhanger.

My Review:

Desiring Dorothy (Men of Oz #1)Desiring Dorothy by Alana Albertson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.75 Stars

This twist on the classic story of Oz, is suspenseful and sexy, however, I almost feel more like I’ve gone to Wonderland instead of following the yellow brick road to the Emerald City. It was a fun concept, and by the end I did become so invested that now I need to see what happens when book two comes along. The start of the storyline did have me a bit lost, and part of me felt like the two sides of Dorothy were, at times, polar opposites. Then as each of the men are added to the mix, I became more intrigued with how they would interact with each other and Dorothy in their volatile situation, as they got closer to The Wizard. Each one bringing their own histories and baggage along the way, and by the time I felt that I was ready for more, the story was over. *I do admit, I didn’t realize the story would be broken up so that I would be left with a cliffhanger. So warning… there is a cliffy!* I am very sold on this reimagining of the classic, and hope that the second installment will answer my questions, and feed my reader soul.
