Noah is an Omega who wanted to do right by his long-time girlfriend. Yet he's wooed by the charms of his best friend Vincent, a gorgeous man, talented artist— and an irresistible Alpha.
When the Alpha and Omega pair return from a vacation in the tropics, Noah’s body begins to change, which leads to a discovery that turns his entire world upside down in a beautiful way.
Pregnant with Vincent’s child, Noah is determined to make their relationship work if only for the sake of their baby daughter. He finds himself falling even deeper in love with the father of his child. But this new family is nearly snuffed when Noah finds Vincent unconscious and is thrust into the most challenging time of his life.
Get ready for a 50k mpreg novel, a wonderful HEA, and the cutest baby you’ve ever seen!

Noah and Vincent don’t have a relationship they just have sex.  That changes when the condom breaks.  Can they become something more? 
The Omega’s Dearest Baby by Louise Bourgeouis is strangely titled.  I expected it to be paranormal in nature and could be further than the truth.  Noah was born having both female and male parts and industrious sperm brought that fact to life.  I enjoyed seeing a somewhat logical reason for Noah’s ability to carry a child.  And I adored Vincent.  He accepted what Noah gave because he loved him.  I loved that Ms. Bourgeouis gave us such a strong male character in Vincent.  I enjoyed seeing both Noah and Vincent deal with the unexpected pregnancy.  I enjoyed seeing them cope with those changes and I liked that Ms. Bourgeouis made it remarkably realistic.  But having said that, I found the story a bit disjointed.  The half was fairly consistent and then about halfway through time became elastic.  From one chapter to the next characters aged and it was difficult to keep track.  I would reread sections thinking I had missed something only to see that I didn’t.  It was disconcerting, to say the least.  Overall, I thought Ms. Bourgeouis gave us a story with good bones but I did not care for the overall storyline. If you are going to put in Omega’s and Alphas I would like there to be some explanation or world building for their presences. Otherwise, I would prefer them to be called something else, so I don’t expect a paranormal book when it is not one.
