Every author deserves credit for the extreme effort that goes into writing a story. The concept was good, I read the blurb and bought it. Sadly, was just blah. There was shifting which I like, but the characters, esp Jake, weren’t developed to where I cared about them. And was it Christmas? I missed that.
Lucifer noticed them and realized he was going to have to give the little boy up. He frowned as he walked over, staring into the blue eyes of the angel he held. The little boy smile and made a noise as he reached out a tiny hand to tug on one of Lucifer’s feathers.
What begins as seemingly benign rude comments on one of his online articles, soon spirals into threatening tweets and implications of impending murder. And when the pair can no longer ignore the very real threat of their safety, Dane decides to take matters into his own hands.
First, at birth, the doctors will announce the gender(male or female). In some verses, you can pay to have a test done to determine whether the baby is an Alpha, Beta, or Omega. In others, you just have to wait until they are about 12-24 years old to find this out. So in a way, you have two genders. The male/female gender and the Alpha,Beta,Omega gender.
Braun Etting is an omega stuck in the cruel world of the alphas. Omegas are treated as inferior property to do with what you will. An omega must defer to their alpha, alphas must give permission for others to speak to their omegas, omegas are mere breeding vessels, there is no law against an alpha ‘disciplining’ their omega…Braun wants nothing to do with alphas. His father resented him and his brother because both were born lowly omegas. When Braun’s father dies he is sent to a halfway house that are supposed to be ‘safe’ for unmated omegas. One night Braun witnesses something he wants no part of…so he runs.
I felt like if I were to tell him then he really wouldn’t talk to me. He had always wanted a perfect life and having a child so early is not perfect. For him I decided to be quiet but he had already knew what I meant.

I ended up a bit ambivalent about this book. I didn’t particularly like Blake and didn’t understand his desire to kick against the pricks in his mid-20s as if he were still 16. I definitely related more to Josh in pretty much all ways.
2. Mpreg, as a category, is the fetishization of trans men’s bodies to primarily pursue male pregnancy above all else (often involving plenty of smut), more often than not ignoring any and all trans experiences that either don’t fit the narrative they want to tell, or are too ‘difficult’ or ‘scary’ for the writers to write. This is deeply fetishistic in a world where there’s next to no representation of trans men that doesn’t include the fetishization of their bodies and the sexual use of them in ways befitting the cis gaze and standard dehumanization.
Matthew Jackson’s life just went from somewhat normal and to a Hollywood horror movie and just because he spent one weekend with the man of his dreams. It would be spectacular if that man was still around but Rico had split without a word. Now, Matty was left to deal with the after effects of their weekend of bliss together all by himself.
Castiel and Dean now sat in the Heaven with the celestial beings. Dean still couldn’t believe that there were two nor could he believe what he was seeing. Their forms which were like shimmering sunshine.
