This one was definitely one of the oddest books I have had the pleasure of reading lately. What drew me in at first, was the beautiful cover with the men's silhouettes and the colours. Plus, it helped that it was free at the time of me grabbing a copy. :)
Diving in, I already knew that it was going to be one of these odd mpreg romances where it's possible for men to get pregnant as well, but I had no idea that it would be set in the contemporary setting with only a slight scifi alteration to it. The few rare mpreg romances I have read before have used the good old paranormal/supernatural fantasy excuse as to why men are all of a sudden having babies on their own (it's like someone installed them with their own womb and uterus). This time, however, it's all because an evil scientist made some tests for the military that had a side effect of all men getting pregnant when they wish to when he contaminated the water supply with that chemical/supplement/whatever.
I don't know why this alteration affected only men, not women, too, as they consume the same water as men do. Also, what are the changes to the animals? Nobody knows as the only change Reaves talks about is the one where men are pregnant (yes, our hero Christen happens to be one of them). And are super duper emotional during the time.
While most of the story seemed to be in the contemporary setting, I also got a whiff of the good ol' supernatural shifter Alpha male... ahem, mate business as it seemed that Reaves had some trouble coming to the conclusion what genre we're really talking about here. Plus the mention of cubs, instead of babies by the future baby-daddy Christen? Super odd.
Jaxson is the top, the Alpha in this relationship while Christen is the bottom, the female of the relationship. I really hate to use this comparison here, but Christen really does seem like your usual crybaby female character who gets into trouble and stuff like that and who simply happens to have also male genitalia in this story. Jaxson is the one who has to instigate their entire relationship while Christen is thinking whether he's ready for it or not and crying half the time and eating gross sounding stuff because pregnancy. See what I mean?
There were a few editorial issues. For example: where Christen's brothers changed their age from being one year older than him to suddenly two years older. Where Jaxson was supposed to be in his late thirties, but at one point it was mentioned that he was only 7 years older than Christen.. Please tell me how can a person be in his late thirties when the first character is 28 and he's 7 years older. I have always thought that 35 was in the mid-thirties...
All in all, an okay read to pass the time, but it would be greatly appreciated by the readers if the author made a few (editorial) changes to the story.
