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.
Three Hearts did a good job figuring out how mpreg would work! I appreciated the thought that went into creating Grace Duncan’s version of the werewolf trope. I’m glad that omegas weren’t just stereo typical women with extra equipment. Instead they were guys with extra parts.
Although fast, Liam and Mason’s relationship was sweet. Liam had a lot of self-esteem issues that Mason had to overcome, but he did so in such a loving way. There isn’t much conflict in the story. This made for a light, heartwarming tale.
The epilogue gave us a glimpse of the future for this couple, and all I can say is wow! I couldn’t imagine being in their position!!!
If you want a low angst shifter tale with mpreg, I recommend this one.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
