Jory has been in love with his best friend, Darius, for as long as he can remember. He’s also made the decision he wants to have a baby, and he can’t think of a better father than Darius. When Jory asks if Darius be willing to father his child, Darius agrees, and they begin their journey to (hopefully) Jory’s pregnancy that very night.
What’s going to happen to their relationship when they realize their feelings run deeper than being best friends?
Conceivable presses all my buttons when it comes to a romance…omegaverse, best friends, and mpreg. This is why I quickly snatched this one up as soon as I saw it was available. I was certainly not disappointed. I went into it expecting a sweet, fluffy book, but I got so much more out of it, and I have to say, this is one of the best mpreg stories I’ve ever read (and I’ve read a lot!). It’s not a long book, but it has a lot going for itself. I guess what surprised me the most was the amount of pure emotion involved. Not only is there the secret love Jory and Darius have for each other, but there’s genuine friendship and so much passion, I could feel it radiating off the page.
Jory and Darius are both great characters. There’s no kind of “bad guy” here. They have jobs they love, friends to confide in, and each other. They were easy to love, and I did love them right from the beginning. As I read along, I was taken with their chemistry. Yes, there was their friendship, but when it’s decided Darius was willing to be the father of Jory’s baby, there was (and I used the word already) so much passion! The aforementioned chemistry exploded. I mean that. The sex scenes, and there are a lot of them, were amazing! Certainly, they were hot, with just the right amount of dirty, but there was so much more. Their growing love for each other just radiated. I loved every sentence.
This is the first book I’ve read by Willa Okati, and I’m so happy to have “discovered” her. I loved her writing style. It was smooth and the dialogue is fantastic. It’s never clunky or stilted. These were actual conversations I was able to follow easily. The story is written in the third person, and I liked that choice. Sometimes head hopping is ok, but with a book like this, it is unnecessary.
The ending was as expected. No real surprises here, but it was perfect. There was the right amount of humor and love, and when the baby is born, wonder.
As you can tell, I really enjoyed Conceivable. I know omegaverse/mpreg stories are sort of niche subgenre, and a lot of people think it may not be their cup of tea. I highly recommend, if you’ve never read a book like this, and you’re looking to dip your toes, this is just the right story to begin the journey. If you’re already a fan, I have no problem telling you to run out and pick this one up. It’s outstanding!
