ARC Review: Baby, Think It Over by Hurri Cosmo

Baby, Think it Over - Hurri Cosmo

What the heck did I just read? Was I supposed to take this seriously, or is the author pranking me?

First off, suspend all notions of realism. There's none in this book. Secondly, get rid off any expectations for fleshed out characters whose actions make even a lick of sense. Thirdly, fire your inner editor for the duration of reading this book.

Do those three things, and this may be an enjoyable book.

Review with spoilers - proceed at your own risk.

Kedon Chase is 18 and a senior in high school. He's gay and out. Tarrell Alan is the same age, also a senior, but presumably straight. He's also supposedly super rich and influential because his family has much power in the town.

As part of their course work, the students are paired off to "raise a baby" for three weeks.

Tarrell is super alpha, growling voice included, and he has decided he wants Kedon. Initially, he just wants Kedon's virgin ass, so he picks Kedon as his partner for the baby project, amidst much whining and backlash from the female student body. Kedon is a bit shell-shocked, but then Tarrell proceeds to kiss the snot out of him WHILE. IN. CLASS. IN. FRONT. OF. THE. TEACHER. Who simply smiles, apparently, because Tarrell is an Alan, and she doesn't dare do much else.

So off they go to care for the mechanical baby. Who cries a lot and thus derails Tarrell's plans time and again. But as time passes, Tarrell sees more to Kedon than just a piece of hot, tempting virgin ass, and a relationship develops. Sort of.

There's a subplot with another rich young man who also wants Kedon and steals the baby and makes Kedon come to his house, where he is then almost sexually assaulted. But never fear, Tarrell to the rescue. At the end, they have super porny sex, with ass-pounding and ball-slapping, which is totally realistic, considering Kedon is a VIRGIN. Right.

And by that time, Tarrell has decided that Kedon is his, and it's oh so romantic (/sarcasm) that he claims Kedon, and they presumably go on to live happily ever after.

(show spoiler)


No, really. Kedon is basically a doormat with maybe a wee, wee bit of backbone, and Tarrell is mostly a jerk who has some nice moments. I almost believed that he developed real feelings for Kedon, but he primarily seemed to look at him as another thing to possess.


Throughout the book, the POV switches between Kedon and Tarrell, and it's sometimes difficult to immediatelly discern who's talking. Dialogue is mostly ridiculous and stiff, and the writing... seriously, I think the author may be trolling us. Rigid staff, hard staff, conquering staff... for the love of god, if you're writing what's supposedly a sexy scene, staff isn't the right word to use.

Also, the editing isn't up to snuff, and I kept marking the file in my Nook repeatedly for simple things that a good editor should have immediately caught.

The book is super OTT, and if you do those three things I mentioned at the beginning, you might have fun reading this. Don't take this seriously.

Seriously.
