Blurb: A former foster kid, Hudson always had a simple dream for a perfect life. A husband to love and a family he could come home to every night. It wasn’t a fancy wish, but it might as well have been.
Approaching forty, he’s still single—and fighting the battle of the bulge—so his dream probably wasn’t going to happen. Not in this lifetime.
Especially not with Drakein Nacash, the drop dead gorgeous man who’s the subject of his nightly fantasies and barely even knows he exists.
In one day, his life is turned upside down and he’s introduced to a myth turned real. What if he could have everything he ever dreamed of?
Review: I usually avoid shifters that are what I would consider non-traditional, but the blurb and warnings had me all over this one. Combining an alien serpent with mpreg was just too much for me to ignore, and I am glad I went for it.
This novella is very fast. There really aren’t any slow parts and so my interest never wavered. At the same time, the relationship is lightening fast too, but it worked because of circumstances that you’ll have to read to understand.
Hudson and Drakein are really hot together and once Hudson gets past the fact that shifters exist, and that men can get pregnant, he really starts to fall for his serpent lover. No sex in serpent form, thankfully, and trust me when I say Drakein is not a little garden variety snake…he is freaking huge.
Honestly, what I think I loved the most was the dirty talk…and play. I was a little worried with where that aspect was going but I liked the way it played out and was a onetime affair. If anything, it made me really want Brekken’s story. I know that is going to be a heartbreaker.
So yeah, here I am recommending a fast paced non-traditional shifter story, go figure!
Overall Impression: I really liked it
