The problem is, James is the only person Bobby can’t stop thinking about.
Can Cupid help these two men find the love they both deserve, or is he crazy for even trying?
Or maybe Cupid really does know something about who we belong with after all.
Cupid Must Be Crazy is the seventh book in the Vale Valley Valentine's series. If you're looking for a sweet and steamy small town open to everyone in need of love and a home, you've come to the right place. This book contains two hot men, a Valentine’s ball, and little help from Cupid—all leading to male pregnancy, a cuddly baby, and a very happy ever after ending.
I wasn't completely sold on the blurb of Cupid Must Be Crazy, and I never would have read this book if it hadn't been written by Xander Collins. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the emotional beats of this story worked, and how invested I became in both James and Bobby as the book progressed. Overall, this was an enjoyable read, although I think there were points where the back stories of both of the characters weren't honored in a way that felt realistic once they came together. This was especially true during the sex scenes.
There were a few unique things about the sex in this book. Collins had some interesting ways of describing knotting from the alpha's perspective that were hot. Technically, this was a dom/sub relationship, but it was pretty vanilla in that regard. In some ways this was fantastic because Collins focused on the emotional elements of their relationship instead of focusing on props or scenarios. This approach was very successful for me as a reader.
In regards to omegaverse kink, this books delivers it all. And not just in regards to sex. While there isn't a lengthy description of a pregnant man, the birth scene is sweet and complete. I adored the final sex scene and HEA.
Overall, I think MPreg readers will enjoy this addition to Vale Valley.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
