Long Overdue by Morgan Meadows (lesbian transgender pregnancy)

Oh my, it has been a long time since I last swooned so hard over a book. Long Overdue is a wonderful read that is romantic, lovely, empowering, and so beautifully positive. Morgan Meadows has written a book unlike any I have ever read before, and I cannot stop feeling all warm and fuzzy about it.

Blair is a quiet librarian, a woman who is struggling with the noisy intrusion of a speed-dating even in her library when she meets Lauren, the boisterous young woman who captures her attention. Their flirting is lovely, and their romantic passion that night is even better. I loved how Lauren revealed her transgender nature, tentative not at all apologetic, and I loved how Blair so easily accepted that.

The fact that Blair becomes pregnant is a surprise to them both, and the emotions behind that are wonderful. Blair always thought of one day adopting children, and Lauren never thought she would be able to have kids. They barely know one another, but they like one another a lot, Blair wants to keep the baby, and Lauren wants to be there for them both, as part of a family.

The chapters follow the progression of the pregnancy, from month to month, and there is so much love and tenderness to them, along with some wonderful humor. I so fell in love with these two women, and so desperately wanted them to become a couple, not just parents. The fact that Lauren designs wedding gowns, but is so in love with Blair that all she can think about is designing her a maternity gown, was such a delight. There are so many little details here that make their journey to parenthood as authentic as their budding romance, I could gush for days, but I do not want to spoil anything.

Long Overdue is a lesbian/transgender pregnancy romance that will make your heart beat faster while putting a happy smile on your face. Please, please, please give it a read. :)

Morgan Meadows is a trans non-binary (they/them) author living in New England. They have just begun writing the Queer and Pregnant series, a series of romance erotica books focused on trans and queer pregnancy stories (and a whole lot of steamy smut in addition to the sweet romances).
