Baby Queen (The Court Book 3) by Charlie Novak

The queens of the Court are back with Baby Queen! We have a teacher/student dynamic with one queen training a baby queen to be their best drag self.

From the blurb:

Note to self: falling for the new queen you're mentoring will only lead to trouble.

Being broke, single, and homeless after winning the UK's biggest drag show wasn't how my life was supposed to go. I’m meant to be the one with everything, but thanks to an unscrupulous tour company I've got nothing but my image and a mountain of debt.

Moving back home with my mum and taking the first gig I’m offered in a local drag panto is supposed to help me get back on my feet, but meeting Colin tangles me up more than ever.

Colin desperately wants to start doing drag and suddenly I'm helping a baby queen find her feet while falling head over heels for the man behind the lashes.

We all know mixing these power dynamics is a recipe for trouble, but my life is already a mess. Will falling for Colin really spell disaster or is he the only thing keeping me upright in my seven-inch heels?

Molly Otto's review:

First off, these two are the sweetest drag queens ever and were made to be in the others orbit. Colin is a baby queen looking to enter the world of drag. Anthony, aka Barbie Summers, is fresh off a win of Drag Queens UK, who is instantly drawn to Colin. Both men have been burned from partners in the past, making their confidence falter, but with the others' support, they are able to flourish.

Charlie, as with other stories of this series, shows the downsides of the drag community. Anthony was taken advantage of after winning and now has to rebuild himself as well as his confidence in and out of drag. With the support of Colin, his best friend Maddie, and his new family, the queens of the Court, he is able to do just that. These two are so dang adorable that you can't help but want to squish them equally.

Heather's Review:

I am loving this series and honestly, I think Baby Queen is my favourite story since Eli's... the sweet men, the outside drama, the genuine friendship and mutual respect and of course, the escalating steam!  I love the found family aspect of this story and how wonderful this particular group of queens is rings through.

I loved watching the growing confidence that Colin experiences as a baby queen and watching Anthony rebuild his confidence and faith.. with a bit of fake it til you make it mentality...

I do think you can read this as standalone, but honestly, it's best read as part of The Court universe in order.
