You’ll Know In Your Heart
The Gods Made Me Do It, book 7 (Can be read as standalone).
Baby, youngest son of Poseidon had started to avoid going anywhere near his family. Between love-struck mates, and tiny children, more and more he was starting to feel as if he just didn’t fit. Anywhere. Abandoned by one father at birth, and pretty much ignored by the other, Baby roamed the world, looking for some kind of acceptance, but all he could find was hook ups. And there were plenty of those. Being the son of Himeros, the god of desire as well, wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. But none of the people he saw for brief moments touched his heart, and most of them never wanted him to stay longer than an hour or two at most.
Owen was known by many names, but the one title he’d spent a long time avoiding was that of “Baby’s mate”. Having known who his mate was from Baby’s birth, Owen had stayed hidden away from life, content to watch his mate through his Oracle stone, until more than a thousand years had past. When the destructive behavior he believed Baby was falling into got worse, Owen knew it was time to step in. Baby needed a fixer, and the Fates had given Owen the job.
But Baby didn’t want to be fixed. In fact, he resented the very idea, which meant Owen needed to make a few attitude adjustments. As the two men bumbled along, struggling to find common ground with each other long enough to make a mating work, they weren’t getting any support from Poseidon, Claude or Himeros. When Baby gets another shock, he seriously starts to think hiding in an isolated cave somewhere was a good idea. The question is – will he take Owen with him?
Unlike my other stories, this book has little or no outside angst factors. Readers familiar with Baby’s story, as mentioned in earlier books in the series, will know this sweet man has more than enough conflict in his own head, without introducing more. Quite simply, this story is Baby and Owen’s journey towards true love and family. You don’t need to read the other books in this series to enjoy this one, but it will help with your appreciation of secondary characters.
This is an MM MPREG story with some graphic scenes intended for readers over the age of consent in the country you reside in. Please store your ebooks responsibly.
I generally love this series. It’s fun, funny and usually full of smexy times and little angst. This is a bit of an exception as both MCs are a bit whiny and not my favorite couple by a long shot. I love the magic and mpreg stuff but these two MCs got tedious pretty quickly.
If you’ve enjoyed the series you’ll want to see what happens to Baby but I wouldn’t read this as a standalone.
I have two pet peeves – 1) Baby’s name. I really wanted that to be fixed. 2) These covers – the books are so good and the covers just – aren’t.
