Liam Scott is sick. That’s not supposed to be possible. As a wolf shifter, he’s supposed to be able to heal. The omega gene he was born with means he’s capable of carrying shifter young and Liam is worried that whatever is wrong will mean his one-day hope of having pups will be dashed. But despite the fears keeping him away from the doctor until now, he knows he needs to go.
It turns out the sickness is temporary, but the treatment causes a whole other problem.
Mason’s alpha gene means he’s one of very few wolves who can impregnate an omega male. For two years, he’d been watching Liam, but things kept getting in the way. When Liam shows up in heat, Mason recognizes the opportunity he needs and doesn’t hesitate make to Liam his mate and the father of his pups.
But Liam has old wounds and fears to work through which the pregnancy is only making worse, and Mason isn’t sure how to get past them to show he’s serious about making a life together as loving mates. It’s not until a female wolf decides Mason should be hers that Liam makes his biggest worry known—and Mason can finally put the fears to rest.
This is a book for fans of mpreg! It’s a 100% angst free pregnancy extravaganza!
As the blurb suggests Liam works for Mason and when his heats start becoming a problem they end up mating. Luckily, both men have had their eyes on the other man for awhile – so everyone is quite happy with that result!
There is very little else in the story to worry about except for the “normal” new relationship followed by newly pregnant issues.
I thought the writing was excellent. Unfortunately, there was a LOT of sex and not much conflict to drive this story forward. Our MCs didn’t spend a heck of a lot of time in their shifted forms and besides being able to carry young, their shifter-ness didn’t really play much of a factor. Liam felt a bit too much like the typical romantic ingénue for my comfort and I wasn’t overwhelmed with anything “new” in this story.
I’m a huge fan of Duncan’s Forbes Mates series (https://openskyebookreviews.com/?s=forbes+mates) and I was a bit disappointed that this didn’t follow a similar pattern. It’s fun, but there just wasn’t enough conflict to keep me interested.
Fans of mpreg will be really pleased by the in depth exploration of pregnancy and the new relationship but fans of shifter romances might find this a bit lacking.
