He’s done being the bad boy … he’s ready to be a father.

DEX

I’ve never seen myself settling down. But then life, reality, hell, my biological clock slapped me right across the face. I knew what I wanted.

A baby.

At thirty-nine I was having a severe case of baby fever, and that meant convincing the one woman I’ve always wanted but knew was too good for me, to be mine and be the mother of my child.

EVA

I’ve always wanted Dex. He’s all raw power and cut muscle. He’s the epitome of what a real man is.
He throws me a curve ball and says he wants me not only as his woman … but the mother of his child.

I’ll be honest; it’s what I’ve always wanted.

DEX

Eva deserves better than me, but I’m too selfish, and I want her too badly to back away. Nothing will stop me from making her mine … and putting my baby inside her.

Warning: This book is short and right to the point—like the kind of story that gives you whiplash. Of course it's unbelievable, dirty in the good kind of way, and is filled with insta-everything. If you want some baby making goodness, you make enjoy this.

So. It seems we’re back to having all teh babies again.

It’s the whole breeding/babies/cumfest fantasy. I am learning this really is a thing. O_O I don’t know who is responsible but they need to be smacked up the back of the head.

I mean, I decided to read Baby Fever because I’d read the first two books in the A Real Man series. Though I don’t know how all teh babies make this dude a real man…but anyway. The last book in A Real Man had rather mature acting characters and I was excited about that. When this latest book was released, I saw the title and rolled my eyes. After reading the first two books in the series, I was under the assumption that this one would be in that same vein.

Instead I found myself in an Alexa Riley/Yeah, Baby series mash-up. And I was kinda…squicked out.

Let’s just call a spade, a spade: Talking ABOUT GETTING PREGGERS while IN THE ACT of having sex IS NOT SEXY. Not in the least. Family planning talks can be romantic but not sexy.

And the way this book was written…it felt like the hero thought of the heroine as more of an attractive womb than a real person. Eva has known Dex most of her life but they barely spoke to each other until the beginning of this book. So most of the quotes below happen at in three places: the beginning of the book (as the intro), the very first time they are alone together and their first date (which is also the first time they have sex).

Fucking Eva with her lush curves and hips that are wide and meant to carry my child. I could come just looking at her. All I could think about was breeding with her, filling her with my spunk, and making her mine.

BTW, *gag* at the word “spunk.”

“And every single time I take you, claim you as mine, Eva, I’ll make sure to fill you up with my cum until you carry my baby.” She gasped. “I don’t want any other woman, don’t want any other female to carry my baby.”

“I am, Eva.” I moved an inch closer. “I’m so fucking hungry for you.” I put my hand on her belly; her body trembled for me. “I want to put my baby in here. Right. Fucking. Here.”

“I want my cum to stay in you, Eva. It belongs inside of you.” He kissed the curve of my shoulder. My skin was damp with perspiration, but it was nice because I knew exactly why I was sweaty. Dex pushed his finger into my pussy, and I shook and moaned. “I want it inside of you,” he murmured as he pushed his seed back into my body when it started slipping out of me.

I mean…really. Can a girl get a little porn without a side of Pregnant! Baby!?

And speaking of teh smexy times…the precoital dirty talk read very awkward and un-sexy. I was desperate to get past the entire section. O_O

Now let’s talk penis size. Because this is apparently important. And discussed before, during, and after sex.

“As much as foreplay sounds pretty fucking incredible, I need to shove my nine inches into you, Eva.”
