I liked it a lot, but I can imagine it would be too much for some. Jerry and Rex are adorable, and the they obviously share shines out. However, this isn’t a cosy afternoon read, it’s a dash from one ‘hold your breath’ moment to another. It takes some concentration, but the story itself pulled me along and made me read on until I knew how it ended and the ending is a very satisfying HEA.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: This book contains hot and lusty male on male action involving frenzied bareback sex, shapeshifting wolves, knotting and a sweet and tender happily-ever-after. Not recommended for those that blush easily.
Joel quickly caught the two eggs and cleaned them, setting them in the growing pile of eggs. He heard another gush and a moan from the man as the next egg started to go down his birth canal. He changed the towel between the man’s feet as it was already soaked to the maximum with birth fluids and blood.
The 3rd book in the series continues to expand this interesting premise of a world populated only by men. All the characters from the previous books appear here to continue to flesh out their stories. I like the interaction between the 2 main characters. The omega is mute, the alpha a constable. Through a series of events they meet and realize they are meant to be together. Don’t like spoilers so none here. If you want to read a good love story try this one and the others in the series.
Some argue that stories that reproduce inequality in gender dynamics and heteronormativity prove that a trope is not subversive, or rather a step back. For example, Berit Åström analyses mpreg in Supernatural and concludes that mpreg mostly leads to conventional stories in an unconventional universe. She shows that the pregnant male is frequently given ‘female’ traits and the stories usually end in heteronormative, monogamous bliss and a nuclear family (birth parent, second parent, child/children).
When Mac captures the feral shifter that climbed the walls surrounding the Mercy Hills Pack enclave, he feels for the young shifter’s fear, though he knows his Alpha isn’t the sort of shifter Jason believes he is. He’d be happy to see the two mated, except that, as time goes by, it becomes more and more difficult to deny his own feelings for the young, damaged omega.
Oh Sehun put all his efforts in finding his ex-lover who ran away from him 3 years ago and accidentally finds him in China, with a little child in tow who looks uncannily like him. Huang Zitao put all his efforts to hide himself and his child from his ex-lover who only uses him as a tool to have an heir. Twisted love, twisted fate and now life brings them back together.
Twas The Night Before ChristmasI sighed as I walked into my house. My 9-month pregnant belly led the way. In my hands are bags of presents that I have to wrap and put under my Christmas tree for family who are coming over in the morning.
He swore they could see the eggs in his pants or purple goo that was leaking from him, to which he’d have a hard time explaining considering he wasn’t human. He looked to Noir but the poltergeist just chuckled and shook his head. It wasn’t a big surprise that he wasn’t going to be any use.
People say a lot of things about fanfiction readers. Three common ideas: they’re just interested in happily ever afters; they’re just interested in gay porn; they’re just interested in radical queer reinterpretation of the Western canon and won’t take no for an answer. All of these things probably have some kernel of truth to them. And naturally, we can see what individual stories people like most: which ones have the most views, the most comments, and the most kudos. But that doesn’t tell us what elements of those stories they like. Not every story engages with fandom’s popular tropes, but many do: tropes can serve as shorthands for themes and plot points across fandom at large. So what do fanfic readers get excited about? Conversely, what makes them click the back button?
Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry’s eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!
