Jerricho never expected to fall in love with Rex, the sexy, construction foreman, but he did. Too bad tradition forbids Jerry from marrying for love. Prince of the clandestine Anzuni demon clan, a Baelso (bearer of children), and a virgin at twenty-four, tradition dictates that Jerry marry a man chosen for him. Despite his soul-deep love for Rex, Jerry has no choice but to follow through with his obligation as prince and marry someone he doesn’t love.
But Jerry isn’t prepared for his dominant, aggressive fiancé who is interested in marrying him only for the future title of king. Facing the reality that he will lose his virginity to the cold man, Jerry flees to Rex for one night of passion. When Jerry finds himself pregnant with Rex’s baby, however, the actions of his enraged fiancé release Jerry from his marriage obligation.
But just when Jerry believes he will marry for love, he and Rex are ripped away from life as they know it. Betrayals, kidnappings, cruel experiments, pregnant men, and the reappearance of the Anzuni’s greatest enemy force Jerry and Rex to fight for their lives, their love, and their unborn child..
As Prince and future ruler of Anzuni demon race, Jerricho (Jerry), has no choice in regards to his future.
Jerry is a 25-year old virgin. His race escaped to earth years ago and blended in with human society or risk annihilation at the hands of the mortal enemies. Jerry has no say in his life. As a royal, his responsibilities are to marry a fellow demon that his parents selected for him and to bear children to continue the royal blood line.
Jerry hates his existence and seeks normalcy via living and working at a library and auto body shop. Jerry has a crush on the Rex a fellow coworker and all around book worm fascinated with books and demon lore. A bad first impression meeting with his future husband sets Jerry on a path that ultimately changes his future and Rex’s as well.
Some People are squeamish about mpreg. I’m not. I love a good story regardless of subject. If the author fully commits and writes an imaginative story, this girl is all in! I liked Rex and Jerry as a couple. I liked how their relationship slowly developed and built into a loving trusting one. Sadly, that’s where the love for this story kinda stops. The journey Wallace took me on became a convoluted one. There were too many distracting story lines competing with the romance of Jerry and Rex. This was also supposed to be a dark fantasy but the only thing “dark” about this story is the fact that the MC is a demon prince.
The unexpected twists and turns were another turn off simply because the twists and turns felt our of character for Rex and Jerry. I won’t mention them but trust me, you’ll kinda cringe as you come across them. This is a story if re written minus a lot of the unnecessary drama would be an excellent one. It reads as a bunch of ideas shared by a group of people and each person had to “add a plot” to keep the game going. I wish I could have loved this book but sadly, it wasn’t meant to be. It was still a fun read. An mpreg reader may enjoy it. Just go in knowing this is a very long over bloated read.
