Unexpected Powers by Chris McHart

Review

Unexpected Powers tells the love story of a rescued abuse victim and his shifter savior. Ash had been sold into a mating to a powerful vampire, and in the Unexpected universe, a mate has absolute power over his or her submissive partner. As a result, Ash had been locked up in the vampire’s house, beaten, and abused in every way imaginable. Bodyguard, tracker, and shifter D falls for the beautifully broken Ash and does his absolute best to help the man he loves recover after the trauma he’d been through and discover love and relationships are not all abusive and dangerous.

Before we start, I’d like to say you’ll need to read the previous books in the series to get a better idea of what’s going on here. To know all the characters involved, understand the universe, check out the first three books which are listed below.

Unexpected Powers is a story of healing, moving on, and finding love, with a twist of hidden powers and secrets to push the plot along. The plot and the romantic story line both move along slowly, at the pace Ash needs to recover. If you’re looking for an action packed, non-stop adventure with shifters and wizards, this won’t be your cup of tea. But if you like witnessing two men falling in love slowly, until their lust, depth of feeling, and friendship all burn bright, pick yourself a copy right now.

In the background of Ash and D figuring their lives together with everything new being thrown their way, the supernatural world of this series is also shifting. The status quo is challenged, laws are overthrown, and a new paradigm is presented to the world’s human and supernatural denizens. These changes add a bit of spice of to the more personal tale of Ash and D, making the book more appealing.

As I’ve said in the introduction of this post, there is male pregnancy in this book (both legacy from previous story, and in the main story of the protagonists). There is  magic, there is love, and there’s a world to confront outside of Ash’s apartment.

Unexpected Series

Alex’s Surprise

Alex wanted a night of hot passion with Gerome, but he gets more than he ever bargained for. His life will be changed forever in a world where he’ll be thrown in jail— or worse— for being pregnant.

Alex’s best friend, Sam, has been acting strange ever since he met Alex’s one-night stand, but now Alex needs help in order to hide, and Sam is his only hope.

Saving Alex

Not only is Alex pregnant, something punishable by jail time, but Gerome, the father of the baby, is a vampire prince. When strangers invade Alex’s home and kidnap him, he doesn’t know who is responsible, if he’ll ever see the man he loves again, or even get to see the child growing inside him.

Considering himself the father of his lover’s child, Sam has a hard time standing around and letting others plan Alex’s rescue. But when the Prince and his trackers find an important clue, the race to save his beloved is on. Now all he can do is cross his fingers that the scheme they’ve devised will work.

When Prince Gerome receives ransom demands, the instructions are clear: mate a complete stranger or he’ll never see Alex or the child he carries again. Will he be able to convince his newly intended to help, or will those seeking to dethrone his family win this evil game of blackmail?

Mate Me, Hate Me, Date Me, Love Me

When his father, King Harold, forces Prince Gerome to mate a complete stranger in order to save his unborn child, he complies with a heavy heart and says goodbye to all his dreams of finding love. Gerome’s hurt and treats his mate the way he’s been taught all his life: through power and submission. But with Luis, it doesn’t work.

When Luis is mated off to a stranger, his world ends. He was a carefree student one day and the next a vampire prince demands his submission. He can’t run, but he can hide and hate in silence. So he withdraws until only a shell remains.

Neither of the men has any chance of finding love together until a friend intervenes. Can Gerome forget what he’s been taught all his life, and is it possible for Luis to forget what’s happened to him? Will they ever find their own happy ending? And can love blossom where only hate exists?
