The Monster at the End of This Pregnancy by Edie Monte

Jacquie jumped at the chance to get her hands on The Monster at the End of This Pregnancy and shares her review.

From the blurb:

Not all monsters are under the bed. The good ones are in it.

Human Punky Bell thinks he's stopping by his parents' house for his birth certificate. Instead, he’s tossed into a windowless van with a smexy stranger and hurtled to another dimension where the van becomes a dire weasel, and his abductor is a lizard/human hybrid.

Punky soon discovers he’s not so human after all. He’s a kobold omega.

Kobold alpha Lark has waited for his mate for a year, but he never expected to meet him on a changeling recovery mission. Now that he's seen Punky, he can't stop thinking about him. It's too bad the strongest alpha wants Punky for himself.

With more than their mating future at stake, it’s up to Punky and Lark to challenge their mortal enemy and save their kind.

The Monster at the End of This Pregnancy is a knotty M/M Mpreg romance featuring an omega who isn’t as human as he thinks, an alpha with the future of his kind resting on his shoulders, a jerk trying to separate fated mates, grumpy/sunshine snark, eggpreg spice, nesting, true love, fated mates, adorable babies, and a guaranteed happily ever after.

Jacquie's Review:

I'm surprised that this is the author's first mpreg book, written under a slightly different pen name, because it sure doesn't read like it.

The world-building, the pregnancy set up, the eggs... it was all on point. I loved every moment of it. Really, it had everything that I needed to feel that I was properly immersed in the world. Everything was thought through. The birth was fun and different for sure!

Punky sure bursts into his new world and goes about fixing things, and though he was grumpy at times, he was a sweetheart. He just wanted what was best for all kobolds. I really liked his attitude about it all. There was a ton for him to adapt to.

His mate, Lark, was really sweet and they bonded pretty quickly. He wasn't the kind of alpha to insist he knew everything. He let himself be guided by Punky at times.

I'm hoping we do get Weld's story as well as one for Tuft. The dragon and Mac, too.

I'm fully invested in this world.
