Reviewing Teresias Bound by Rebecca James

Teresias Bound by Rebecca James 4*
BLURB: Aiden is a man in a woman's body. His dream is to fly to Aquarix where the elusive Fluens--the only species capable of changing his life record and physically making him a man--reside, and for years he's been working at a seedy brothel in Solarias to save enough money to make that dream a reality.
Lydo, the prince of Teresias, has spent his youth leading his father's army and avoiding his responsibilities on his home planet. On brief leave during a dangerous mission, he stops at a brothel and acquires the services of a feisty young prostitute who insists Lydo refer to her as a boy. Amused by the girl, the prince pays her way to Aquarix.
Aiden is euphoric at his transformation, but Lydo is more than a little disconcerted by the fact he is attracted to Aiden as a man.
When it's time to part ways, Aiden fulfills his second dream by taking a job on a spaceship. Resigned to step into his expected role on Teresias, the prince returns to his homophobic planet. But as the king parades princesses before his son in hopes of a betrothal, Lydo finds his heart remains with a certain adventurous boy somewhere out in space.

My Review: I got a free copy of this book through IndiGo Marketing & Design for providing an honest review. I think this has to be one of the most unique takes on trans and mpreg I've read in a while. The author has done a wonderful job with portraying the transition of Aiden but what made it a 4* read for me, was that the second character of Lydo made a believable and slow transition from homophobic playboy to an open-minded, generous, and worthwhile human being. I will definitely be looking for more stuff from this author as soon as funds allow.
