Why I read this book: I really enjoyed the first book I read by JC Wallace and when I saw he was writing a MPreg book I had to try it.
Jerricho never expected to fall in love with Rex, the sexy, construction foreman, but he did. Too bad tradition forbids Jerry from marrying for love. Prince of the clandestine Anzuni demon clan, a Baelso (bearer of children), and a virgin at twenty-four, tradition dictates that Jerry marry a man chosen for him. Despite his soul-deep love for Rex, Jerry has no choice but to follow through with his obligation as prince and marry someone he doesn’t love.
But Jerry isn’t prepared for his dominant, aggressive fiancé who is interested in marrying him only for the future title of king. Facing the reality that he will lose his virginity to the cold man, Jerry flees to Rex for one night of passion. When Jerry finds himself pregnant with Rex’s baby, however, the actions of his enraged fiancé release Jerry from his marriage obligation.
But just when Jerry believes he will marry for love, he and Rex are ripped away from life as they know it. Betrayals, kidnappings, cruel experiments, pregnant men, and the reappearance of the Anzuni’s greatest enemy force Jerry and Rex to fight for their lives, their love, and their unborn child…
Jerry is 24 years old. He is the Prince of the demon clan Anzuni. Jerry is a virgin and set to be married in a few months. The problem is he doesn’t want to be married but his parents the Anzuni King and Queen have followed tradition and have already arranged for it to happen.
Jerry has been living his life as he chooses the last few years. This was only allowed because Jerry knows that he will have to return home when he turns 25 years old, marry and take on his royal role. Soon after marring he will also become pregnant with the next royal prince or princess. What Jerry didn’t plan on was falling for the foreman on the construction job where he is working.
Rex is a big muscled man. He is sweet, sexy and shares the love of mythological books with Jerry. Once Jerry realizes that Rex is gay and is attracted to him, Jerry freaks out knowing they can never be together due to the arranged marriage and the fact that Rex is human.
Jerry doesn’t want to hurt Rex or himself anymore so he accepts his fate and responsibility and returns home. When Jerry finally meets his future husband, he realizes just how awful his marriage will be. Jerry doesn’t want to lose his virginity in that type of situation, therefore he is determined to spend one night of passion with someone else. When he unexpectantly runs into Rex he can’t fight the attraction any longer and spends one amazing night with him.
This one night of passion results with Jerry getting pregnant. When his fiancé becomes aware of this, he is livid and calls off the wedding. Jerry is relieved he won’t have to marry Ty because he is in love with Rex.
Jerry is scarred to let Rex know about the baby. He has no idea how Rex will react to the news since he doesn’t know that Jerry is a royal baelso demon. To his surprise Rex accepts all this with stride. Rex has read all about demons, he just wasn’t aware it existed in real life.
Just when everything seems to be falling into place for the two of them chaos breaks out. Will Jerry and Rex’s love be strong enough survive everything that is thrown at them?
I truly enjoyed reading Jerricho’s Freedom from the beginning to the very end. This was my first Mpreg book, not knowing what to expect I was pleasantly surprised. JC Wallace did an amazing job writing such a intruqing story. It flowed really well. The scenes and the characters are well-developed. The sex was off the charts. There are twist and turns throughout the entire book that will keep you captivated. It was like being on an emotional roller coaster. My heart would be breaking and then I would be hopeful and smiling just to get to another twist. I really hope the author writes a sequel to this because there is so much more I would love to read about the characters.
If you love a paranormal book filled with action, suspense, betrayal, love and hot MM sex then I highly recommend Jerricho’s Freedom by JC Wallace.
9/10 pots of gold
JC Wallace started writing from a young age, but took a break for marriage, kids, and college (in that order). A couple of years ago, he rediscovered his passion and ventured out into the brave new world of publishing with his short, Waiting for Snow, and his first novel, Curiosity Killed Shaney. At night and on the weekends, JC writes about all things men, believing there is nothing hotter than two men finding and loving one another, whether for a night or forever. An avid reader of M/M romance, JC loves a good twist of a plot, HEA, HFN, or tragic ending. He also writes what his bestie calls HUNK (Happy Until the Next Kidnapping).
In his daytime hours, JC works with individuals with autism and behavior problems. He is owned by a beautiful partner, Speed Demon, three kids, two grandchildren, two dogs and one cat. He lives in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains in Northern NY.
