As prince of the Anzuni demon clan, Jerricho’s entire life has been planned for him. At twenty-five, he will become the crown prince of the Anzuni, marry a man chosen by his parents, and bear his husband’s children all without choice. If that wasn’t enough, he must remain a virgin until his wedding night. To do otherwise would spark an unimaginable scandal.
With only ten months until his twenty-fifth birthday, the walls close in on Jerry, and the realization that he will lose his small apartment, his job at the library, and his freedom hits hard. But that’s nothing compared to losing the man he loves. Rex is a smart and sexy construction foreman with a keen interest in demon “mythology.” When Jerry and Rex give in to spending one night together, their indiscretion can’t be kept secret for long. But that’s only the beginning of their problems.
Someone wants to harness the power of Jerry’s bloodline and his ability to conceive—someone with designs on horrifying experiments, sex slavery, and murder. Jerry and Rex are at the mercy of power-hungry sadists. With no one left to trust, they must fight for each other, their freedom—and their unborn child.
I really enjoyed Jerricho’s Freedom. It was well paced with interesting characters and situations. While some of the details were hard to read, with the off page rape and on page violence, many characters weren’t who you thought they were and twist and turns abounded.
The demon society was well thought out as was the logistics of mpreg in the story. I liked that Jerricho and Rex were mostly friends before they got together. It made up for the fact we don’t see them interacting when not under duress.
The bad guys were truly evil and sadistic and I felt bad for all the lives their actions affected. There is some very dark material in this book. It makes me sad that I could truly believe someone doing them, if demons were a thing in this world. However, there is a great happily ever after to make up for the trauma.
This is my first book by this author, but I’ll be sure to check out more!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
