This is a new author for me and I am glad I took the chance and got this book.
Kyle was nineteen when he hooked up with a big handsome man in a club. Jonah took him outside and rocked his young mind, and permanently changed his life forever. This is a world where a small number of men can get pregnant, and a world where the men's room condoms are not to be trusted.
Kyle had Shea and bought a boutique - he made a life for them. Then a senseless act of vandalism shakes his world apart because one of the detectives is his baby daddy, and Jonah doesn't recognise Kyle. At all. Kyle is terrified what Jonah will do if he realises they have a child together.
When Jonah is told he and Kyle hooked up at a club but Kyle hadn't told him he is furious - more so when he realises the kid is his. His reaction is violent - what Kyle doesn't realise is Jonah doesn't remember because he can't.
I liked this story from the start. It jumped right up and captured me because it is a different premise: men can get pregnant.
I was enjoying it but the two female characters are aggressive and possessive to a degree that is frustrating. And while I do like this story, it is such a good idea and so different, that I am really disappointed there was such a lack of depth to the relationship between Jonah and Kyle. There was quite a build up but we don't see the relationship develop when they start to spend time together. We don't get to see how Jonah relates to, and interacts with Shea. There was a lot of potential here to become immersed in the bonding of a child and his father - but nothing, the story jumps ahead. The same with Jonah and Kyle, nothing intimate, nothing showing the building of trust and friendship. Kyle has said they will be friends, because he doesn't think there will be anything else - but we don't see that. We are told that through the women. I just wish the author had invested more time and thought into what the story was about: the building of love between men and the story of a man claiming his child, seeking his love and learning to be a Dad.
i like the story - but it could have been so much more. I will for more by the author but will be reading the reviews before I buy.
