The Breaking Point by Aiden Bates

AUTHOR’S BLURB: Vinny and Lance have the show business bug.

Vinny’s an Italian kid from Ohio coming to Chicago to try to make it as a singer. Lance is a Jewish kid from all over the place, hanging out at improv shows and open mic nights. They meet and find an instant attraction, and team up that very night: partners on and off stage.

The ups and downs and hardships of a life in the spotlight are one thing, but Lance has a condition that he thought was just a family joke, some legend passed down just to goof with kids: his dad is the third son of a third son, and it turns out Lance is too, and with that comes the strange ability to get pregnant. Lance thinks it’s a joke right up until he realizes it’s true, and has to tell Vinny what’s happened.

That’s one more crazy thing thrown at the pair in the pursuit of fame, and the only question is: will the love they have for each other keep them together, or tear them apart?

This is a non-shifter male pregnancy gay romance book. This book contains sexually explicit content not suited for those under the age of 18. The book is approximately 50,000 words, has a happy ending and does not end in a cliffhanger. The book does include a bonus chapter for insider’s club members. However the bonus chapter is not required to finish the book.

MY REVIEW: This is a big change from the author’s usual writing style and voice. It’s good, it’s interesting and the story isn’t bad. I did find there was a lack of connection between the main characters, which is unusual for this writer. They seemed to have decided to be together for their careers and not for “twu wuv”. But the story did leave you guessing about some things and you will have a reaction to the characters, whether you love them or hate them. And that’s what you generally look for in a book.
I received a free advance reader copy of this book in exchange for an honest & unbiased review.
