I spent some time this week pondering how some authors tend to write Mpreg in such a way that if it weren’t labeled as such, it could be categorized as any other MF Romance. So, imagine my surprise when this author not only allows their MC, Stephen, to hold on to his masculinity, but also gives him a backbone.
I loved how special Stephen is, and how each time he is underestimated as just a human or just a recessive, or just an omega, the Wolf Gods/Fate, show him as so much more. The pack Alpha, Mack, on the other hand needs to be taken to the woodshed for an old-fashioned whoopin’ for all the lies he tells Stephen, the pack, and even himself.
While Mack believes he is protecting everyone by not telling the truth, expressing half truths, or omitting pertinent information makes for more drama, subterfuge, and peril than is necessary. While I understand an Alpha wanting to protect, Mack quickly learned Stephen was not just anyone to be trifled with and he had come to Mack for help regarding his adopted son. If Mack wouldn’t help, he would find someone who would. Unfortunately that someone could cost him his life, his son, and Mack his fated mate.
I enjoyed the first book very much and from what I have found online this was Kelly’s first (debut) published work. It was well written with engaging characters, good world building, and plot.
If you would like to give an Mpreg Shifter Romance a shot that is different than the “norm,” definitely give The Cub Club a try. As for me, I am heading on to book #2. There is still so much to learn about this special pack, and I am looking forward to reading what the Wolf Gods have in store for those of, The Lone Wolves Ranch.
