Too much inner rambling and barely any dialogue.
MAX, being the main topic upon which the plot is based, seems like nothing but a ghost hovering somewhere in the background ; never really participating in the story at all.
In the chapters from Riley's pov, the author could have built character by sharing some actual interaction between him and the child. But the whole atmosphere is just... dead.
After what seemed like Riley being quite determined and outspoken during his interview, suddenly he becomes this nervous shrinking flower.
I feel this book was, sadly, a lost opportunity, because sooo much more could have been done with a wonderful plot line.
Disappointing effort all round.
After what Grayson went through with his first husband, it was easy to see why he was reluctant to become involved with another omega. You could tell he had a caring, nurturing personality which I loved instead of a rough alpha attitude. Riley was determined to be a part of his child’s life after being forced to give him up. And although he wasn’t honest with Grayson when he was hired, there was sincerity in Riley’s deception after his last alpha treated him so badly.
I wish there was more scenes with Max. I felt like he was there really only as a place holder. Like the only time we see our two mc's with Max are when he's eating a snack or drawing? I'm pretty sure the child only had like 6 lines of dialogue in the whole book. With Max being the whole purpose for Reiley being there, I wish there was more bonding between son and papa.
And the book was very introspective, with lots of thinking between literally everything. A whole chapter could happen with nothing actually happening? What's more, is that the dialogue between Gray and Reiley was so fluid and unrealistic. Like Reiley would think something and Gray would immediately adress it verbally. Or Reiley would say something and Gray would be, "yes I completely agree and expect the exact same thing". Even when Gray learned Reiley's secret, it was only two or three pages of conflict the went right back to unconditional love and reverence.
Over all, I did enjoy the book. It was sweet, steamy, and at time very cute. I do recommend.
(P.S. authors, please stop raising the face up by one finger under the chin. It happened like 2 maybe 3 times in this book alone, not to mention it happeneing in every mm romance ever published. It's becoming cliche at this point.)
The writer does a good job of keeping us waiting for the other shoe to drop, but quickly resolves the conflict with the help of wise and supportive friends. The secondary characters are likable, especially because they have their friends' backs. I'm not exactly thrilled, though, that Riley's friend Luca's story is introduced and then left vague to the bitter end. Why tease us with it if there's to be not even a hint of an explanation? I am not a fan!
I like that Grayson is flawed because he seems to be so clean cut and almost too perfect for most of the story. It was nice to see that the idol has feet of clay. We already know that Riley is imperfect, going in, because of the secret he's carrying with him. But it's nice that the omega isn't the only one drawn with a fault of character. Alphas are also human and can be stupid, too, which only makes for more believable characters.
Overall, between the mostly on point characterization and the mounting tension, mixed with the very hot sexy times and the tender affection and love that grows between them, the author has composed a lovely story.
Overall, I really enjoyed this fake manny/billionaire mpreg romance! Although this is the second book in the series, it was very easy to read this as a standalone (that's what I did) and not be lost.
I enjoyed the romance between Riley and Grayson, it was sweet and then sensual. I was dreading when the big secret would be revealed and exactly how it would be revealed and handled, and I was pretty happy that Grayson was mostly understanding and it didn't cause HUGE drama between the two of them.
I would definitely read the next book in this series and check out the rest of this author's work.

Riley gets the job as nanny for his birth son at Grayson. It is a slowly developing love story, shaped by the uncertainty of both actors.
Gray was mauled by his first husband, who has a hard time trusting someone. And Riley, who lives in the constant fear that Gray finds out who he really is.
The author has told a very empathetic story, with lovable main characters, in which you can put in very well. I'm really looking forward to the next book.
