"Part two of Will and Leon’s adventures was even more fun for me than part one. While the men may be mated, with all the consequences that follow in this world, they still have to work on actually trusting each other. Not an easy task with one of Leon’s exes turning up to throw a spanner in the works – on more than one level - and Will having to confront his abusive parents. If you haven’t read ‘The Purring Billionaire’s Plaything’, I’d recommend you do because you’d be missing vital elements of the story without it. Also I have to give fair warning that a lot of what I say in this review from here on out will be a spoiler for that first book. Will is settling into his new life and beginning to come to terms with what happened. Some of that is easy - Leon is a wonderful mate and now that he has understood what happened to make Will break up with him all those years ago, Leo is sorry that he was so nasty. Will is falling for Leon. Some of his new life is a little harder –pregnancy is not something Will ever expected to happen to him. He knew in theory – just like Leon – that a shifter finds out who his true mate is when he gets him or her pregnant. But to have this actually happen to him is an entirely different story. The initial morning sickness, the doctor’s orders for bedrest, and Will’s constant horniness are less than easy to deal with. Leon is just as shocked - he never thought to use protection when he first paid Will to have sex with him because he wanted revenge. Leon never expected Will of all people to be his true mate, but now that he knows? He couldn’t be happier. As it turns out, he never really stopped loving Will even though he tried hard. Leon finds himself wanting to make changes to help Will trust him, to get ready for the baby, and to be able to spend more time with his new family. There are a few hurdles to overcome - like an obnoxious ex, his machinations, and Will dealing with his suddenly greedy parents - but Leon is as determined as he is devoted and will make Will happy never mind how tough it is. If you like shifter billionaires who unexpectedly have to confront the fact they have a true mate, if you want to find out more about a human man who suddenly finds himself pregnant, and if you’re looking for a read that is as entertaining as it is hot,-hot- hot, then you will probably like this novella." -- Serena Yates, Rainbow Book Reviews
“The baby’s fine. Just get over here already.”
Leon Nathaniel Black, alpha lion shifter and self-made billionaire, actually growled at him. His eyes changed color, and it just made Will’s cock harder.
He couldn’t help it. Being a pregnant guy sucked sometimes, especially since his stomach had hardly stopped churning ever since he found out he was carrying Leon’s baby, but today was different.
“It’s fine. I’m having a good day. Not feeling sick at all.”
No. Will was feeling something else entirely as he lounged in Leon’s bed in the pool house, naked, and just for good measure, he brought his hand up and tweaked his nipple.
When Leon had gone into the bathroom for a shower, Will had taken it as his golden opportunity and shucked his clothes, waiting for Leon to come back with his hand on his cock.
“You’re trying my patience.”
“I love it when you talk like that,” Will said, feeling a warm flush creep over his body as Leon practically watched him masturbate.
“You should come over here and purr it in my ear, tell me how bad I’m being.”
“Did you have something to drink when I was in the shower?”
Leon was suddenly beside him, his large calloused hand on Will’s forehead. Although he was a billionaire, Leon had done some hard work in his life. Despite that, his touch could still feel soft, and Will reached for the man’s hand, pulling the palm down from his forehead so he could press a kiss to it.
Will sat up, gazing up lovingly at the man standing over him. He watched as Leon’s throat bobbed in a heavy swallow. “You are such a pest.”
Will nodded. “Yeah.”
“And you weren’t feeling well last night, let me remind you.”
He didn’t need to remind him. Will still felt like shit from all the stomachaches, throwing up, and other gross things that came with being sick from pregnancy. Supposedly, men got it worse than women since they weren’t born with the insides to accommodate a fetus. All that stuff had to be grown in advance for when the baby was actually put inside him.
It was all medical and magical mumbo-jumbo as far as Will was concerned, but lately his days had been better and the sicknesses weren’t lasting as long. They were still there, but not as strong as before.
“Last night was just a bad night. I think I’m starting to get used to this.”
Though, not used to the tiny bump that was starting to form on his stomach. It felt weird, like a tumor. Weirder still to know that it was actually Leon’s baby, but also nice in its own way.
“Please?” he asked.
Will watched the way Leon’s eyes dilated. They dilated big time. There was no way in hell Leon could resist the eyes Will made at him, or the begging tone of voice he just used.
Will had realized that a couple of weeks ago. He was still living under Leon’s roof, as Leon’s property, sort of. Leon had been angry with Will after Will had broken his heart, and Will had been furious with Leon when Leon had forced him out of business by copywriting the programming Will had created before Will had the chance to think of it himself.
Leon’s revenge on Will for breaking up with him and calling him names hadn’t been complete, however. He’d wanted to have Will in his house, to have enough leverage over him to make sure Will never left him.
It was messed up, but somehow, through all that, through all the talks they started to have, they’d both started to come back to the place where they had started.
Being stupidly in love with each other. Of course, it had taken Leon finding out Will was pregnant, and therefore also his mate, for him to come to grips with what a moron he’d been, but beggars couldn’t be choosers, and Will didn’t much care how it happened. Not anymore.
They’d admitted, more or less, that they both had feelings for each other, but things were still progressing slowly.
The sex, however, was not. Whenever Will happened to be feeling all right, he was constantly in the mood. He was either always feeling sick, or always feeling incredibly horny.
Luckily, one of the perks of being the live-in boyfriend of any man was the promise of regular sex, which Will was not ashamed about begging for right now.
Leon groaned, and that was when Will knew he won the battle. His lover, his mate, leaned down and put his hands on Will’s face, pulling him forward, kissing him sweetly on the mouth.
Will moaned. It was one of the most innocent kisses Leon had given him since their days in high school.
Will had to be the only teenager in the history of time who hadn’t been screwing everything with legs, and Leon had often complained about his no-sex rules. But all the same, whenever Leon had been hoping to not give himself blue balls, he’d kissed Will like this. Like he was something precious and fragile. Like Leon was trying to be careful to not get himself so horny that he couldn’t contain himself.
Will liked it. He also liked the hint of tongue, the way it made him shiver, made his balls heavy and his cock ache.
He also wanted more, and he wasn’t going to settle for anything less than getting Leon naked and in bed with him.
Will blindly fumbled his hands over Leon’s belt. Unhooking the metal loops and pulling it open, he reached inside.
Leon hissed, pulling away from their kiss. His eyes were shut, but Will knew that if he opened them, he might catch a glimpse of that powerful cat that was lurking within him.
“Are you sure?”
“I want you to suck my cock,” Leon said. His hands pushed his pants down the rest of the way, and his briefs. “Can you do that for me?”
He asked in a way that suggested he already knew the answer. Will didn’t have to think about it. His body buzzed when Leon’s cock sprung free from his underwear, pushing against his firm, strong belly.
It was thick and dark in color. It was the pearl of precum forming at the slit on the crown that really caught Will’s attention, made his blood run molten hot in his veins.
Will nodded, pushing himself to sit up. “Yeah, I can do that.”
He was about to get on his hands and knees when Leon stopped him, pressing his hand to Will’s shoulder.
“Here, lie on top of me,” he said, lying back down on the mattress, adjusting himself so he was in the middle of the bed. Then he smiled, which made him look even more handsome than before. “Now you don’t have to worry about hurting your back.”
Will grinned, leaning down and kissing Leon’s thigh, purposely avoiding the man’s cock and balls. “So considerate.”
Leon arched his back. “Come on, baby, you were asking me for this.”
Right, and Will wasn’t in a mood to tease too much. He wanted to get off. If he didn’t satisfy the intense urges inside him, he was going to lose his damned mind.
And part of those urges involved making his alpha mate feel good.
“Tell me to do it,” Will said, feeling suddenly shy about it. “I want you to tell me to suck your cock.”
And those alpha eyes glinted again. Will shivered.
“You want your alpha to boss you around again?”
Will couldn’t say anything. He just nodded. Admitting to this while he was naked and in bed with his lover seemed a lot kinkier than it really was. He knew it wasn’t the kinkiest thing there was out there. Lots of people who had alpha mates enjoyed being bossed around by them when in bed. What Will was going through was probably a mix of that and the fact that he was just naturally a bottom.
And the way Leon had come back into his life. Will had been beyond pissed off the day that Leon had showed up and basically threw money at him to keep him from going out on the street, but now that he looked back on it, it was kind of kinky and romantic in a strange sort of way.
Leon’s eyes glinted, and once again, Will caught sight of the way the lion started to come out. Leon’s blond hair was suddenly starting to look a little shaggier and dry, like the mane of a lion. “Not good enough. You have to say it.”
Will shivered. Leon ran a fingertip down his cheek and chin, then his neck and chest. It felt like a trail of pleasure being drawn over his chest.
“I … I want you to tell me to suck on your cock. Order me to do it.”
Leon grinned at him. “You know, I think I’m going to like this new side of you. I always knew that good boy in high school was hiding a bad boy waiting to come out.”
They were most definitely not in high school anymore.
“All right, Will.” Leon sat up, putting his hands on the back of Will’s throat, pulling him forward for slow, warm kisses on his throat, his cheeks, then his lips. “Suck on my cock, right now.” Leon smiled as he leaned back on the mattress. “And be sure to do it like you mean it.”
And that was just what Will had been hoping to hear. He moaned as he leaned forward.
Leon hissed and threw his head back when Will’s tongue made contact with his cock. He lavished it with affection in the best way he knew how. Will licked at the head before he put his lips around it and sank down.
“That’s it,” Leon moaned. “God, you feel good. Here, wait.”
Will pulled back. “What?”
Leon just grinned at him, and he grabbed Will’s shoulders, adjusting both of their bodies so that Leon was standing at the side of the bed, and Will was on his stomach. “Not going to be able to do this position for much longer,” he said, smiling and he reached back with his fingers and—
Will groaned, pressing his face down into the sheets when those fingers touched his asshole. Leon flicked his fingertips across the pucker. Will pushed his ass back against that sensation, wanting more, but Leon pulled back.
“Need some lube for that,” he said.
Will laughed. “I was getting impatient.”
“Almost forgot, did you?”
Will nodded, watching as Leon opened the cap and slicked his fingers before putting the bottle down again.
“Okay, now, back to what you were doing, and make it good, because then I’ll be good to you,” Leon said.
Another shiver rippled through Will’s skin. He moaned, suddenly a thousand times more excited for this position as he went back to licking and sucking on the hard length of Leon’s cock.
Leon released a low guttural sigh, and the sense of accomplishment, of delight when Will heard that sound was unbelievable. He loved it when he knew he could make Leon—big, strong alpha lion shifter that he was—moan for him. It gave Will an amazing sense of control, even when he was the one in this position.
He sank down deep, and this time Will moaned when he felt those wet fingers touch his hole one more time.
Leon pushed one inside, pressing it back and forth, slowly at first, and then hard and fast.
A hint for what was to come next.
Will moaned around his mouthful, and Leon rumbled with approval. When he spoke, Will could hear the smile in his voice. “God, you feel good. I love you.”
