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.
I love shifter stories and mpreg is so familiar to me, that I wonder if I’d even turn my head at a pregnant man walking down the street.
And I liked this story. Liam and Mason are likeable characters and they are a very sweet couple. Watching their relationship grow is adorable and of course, I cherish a happy ending as much as the next romance reader.
My issue with this book is that everything with the tiniest bit of angst is resolved with the least amount of fuss. Liam’s illness is quickly taken care of by his pregnancy and other than that, most of the angst in the story comes from regular old pregnancy hormones and a lack of communication. There’s no real struggles, no anticipation that leaves us begging for more.
Liam has a lot of good friends who are always looking out for him and Mason’s family accepts him wholeheartedly. We see bits of them throughout the book but they are just there to move the plot along and that’s about it.
Don’t get me wrong. The author knows her stuff when it comes to shifters and she writes some spectacular sex scenes and some of them are hot enough to melt my screen.
It’s a nice story and if you are looking for something with minimal angst that will leave you smiling then you will love this story. You can’t help but want these two men to work it all out.
But if like me, you’re a bit of an angst-whore you might leave a little disappointed. I like my lovers to have to work for their happy ending.
