Theodore Reinhart is a young man looking for love. In San Diego. At a convention. For penguin shifters. WaddleCon is the go-to event of the year when looking for your life partner, but Theodore isn’t comfortable with the game they’ve turned dating into, nor does the convention provide for the gay community. A mistake in speed dating table assignments puts Theodore in front of Wesley O’Neill, a handsome and confident model who lets it slip that he’s definitely noticed the spark of attraction between them.
A perfect date ends prematurely when Theodore finds an abandoned egg in a bathroom trash can. Unable to leave it behind, Theodore and Wesley play a mad game of cat and mouse across the resort trying to keep it safe, all while growing closer to one another. Wesley may be the forever partner Theodore came looking for, but their relationship won’t work if they don’t make room for a little addition to the family.
Love, Marriage and a Baby Carriage is a delightful romp of a short story. Between the humorous situations these two men go through and their sweet romance, I was fascinated with these characters and enjoyed every minute I spent reading this gratifying novella.
The story is told through Theodore’s point of view and since he is such an endearing character, I immediately liked him. He is looking for love and when he arrives at the Waddlecom Convention Theodore quickly finds himself wrapped up into a zany and humorous hijinks with his new love, Wesley.
Love, Marriage and a Baby Carriage is fun-filled romance. It’s a cute, sweet and sexy story and I really enjoyed it.
