Counterfeit Bride by Zi Yue
Counterfeit Bride (冒牌新娘) - Zi Yue,籽月

I eally enjoyed this little story. 

Ling Shuang, a daughter of a nobleman, is about to be married to a complete stranger. She is not happy with this arranged marriage. She already has a lover and they made plans for their future life together. 

On her way to her betrothed's house, Ling Shuang forces her male servant, Jie Yi, to put on a female dress and makeup and play a role of a bride. She also gives him a cheap pearl bracelet as a small bribe. They part, Yi to go and get married to the stranger, and Ling Shuang to reunite with her lover.

Tian Yang doesn't want a wife. He remembers his own beautiful aristocratic mother running away to find a better life, far away from the children and the ranch which belonged to their family. This betrayal is so deep, that Tian Yang is determined to undermine any future marriages, arranged or not. When Jie Yi arrives, claiming to be Ling Shuang, Tian Yang take him to a remote warehouse/hut to test his new bride. But Jie Yi, as beautiful and delicate as he is, doesn't mind the hardship; after all, he grew up a servant. 

Over a few weeks, Tian Yang finds himself suddenly drawn to the beautiful young lady, who seems to be perfect for him and is not afraid of hard work. One day, with two young people living so close together, things finally get out of hand. Yi's secret is discovered. Petrified, he leaves the little hut.

In the meantime, Ling Shuang shows up at Tian Yang's ranch, claiming little Yi robbed her blind, left her sick on the road and pretended to be her in order to take her place. Her proof? That little pearl bracelet....

Fun begins :)

****

As far as BL novels go this was pretty decent, with plenty of twists and turns. The ending was a bit disappointing, with numerous relatives complaining 'oh, my god, two men together! No, it's OK you can stay, but oh, my god, maybe you should leave...' Round and round and round it went.

Translation was confusing at times, but I can't hold it against the book or the person who translated it. All I can say is "thank you for you hard work" :)

3.75 stars.

The Fall of the Dragon King by MomsDarkSecret
The Fall of the Dragon King - MomsDarkSecret

This book is mostly about post-earthquake clean up, city planning, social issues and charity :/ None of it by itself is a bad subject, but more hanky panky (or at least snuggles/feels) and less city planning is always a win in a romance book, imho. Unless rubble removal makes you horny, of course.

Breeding Stations (Alliances #1) by Chris T. Kat
Breeding Stations (Alliances Book 1) - Chris T. Kat

Nothing here about forced breeding or even remotely (human) mpreg. No non/dub con either.

Breeding stations are planets where a common enemy of two races breeds monsters/dinosaurs to unleash on unsuspecting planets and destroy local population. MC hunts the super crazy GMO dinosaurs and engages - on a regular basis - in mind boggling sex with tall, handsome, uber possessive and extremely well equipped Onri-like (Claimings, Tails, and Other Alien Artifacts) alien mate. What's not to love? :D

The book is campy and fun and it has a giant alien with a very capable tail.

4.5 stars. A little bit of mush-and-feels talk in the middle was a half star off for me.

Love's Crash Landing by Amylea Lyn
Love's Crash Landing - Amylea Lyn

"Prince Mi'Kel is now Mikinna Petrovik, formerly of Moscow... My contact said there wouldn't be a problem (with false documents - mrella) even if those Feds get it into their heads to look.”

 

I laughed and I laughed and I laughed!... And then I giggled on top of it =) Maybe local, american, feds are fine with it, but Mikinna Petrovik is not a Russian name and population there is not that diverse not to draw attention to a strange name *snort* Might as well have kep Mi'kel.

The Prince's Consort (Chronicles of Tournai #1) by Antonia Aquilante
The Prince's Consort - Antonia Aquilante

The first chapter, maybe part of the second too, was great. I thought the book was promising, but as soon as the prince (why was he a prince and not a king? @.o) took Amory into his chambers for a talk, that was it. Insta-love with myriads of kisses from there and on.

Nothing's happening in the first part of the book, while the second is full of drama: "don't do it, you'll die!!!" and "no I have to do it or you will die!!!" and "I can't stand to see you die!!!" and "I have to do it, even if I die, cause no one else is here to help!!!" with slight variations. The MCs are constantly injured and spend weeks in bed suffering their suffers and doing nothing. 

The world building is non-existent.
The cat-shifter element is close to non-existent.
The MPREG element is minimal. Amory got pregnant, he had some morning sickness(we were told), he was uncomfortable, he had a baby - painlessly, no less.

If you are a fan of male pregnancy, let me refer you toBlack Snow. Not only it has world-building, real adventures and characters with personality, but the significant portion of the book is devoted to Snow being pregnant. Descriptions are vivid, details are plentiful and very close to the real non-male thing. Just a little warning: the medical tools are somewhat modern ;)

PS The Cover! Love the Cover ♥
Another rec: if you want a book matching it's cover (and the other way around), read Queer Magick
