Whether you have children, want children, or can’t stand children, this graphic memoir is fun for all readers. For Lucy, getting pregnant was the easy part; staying pregnant, however, was far more difficult. After several miscarriages, she finally has the chance to experience the joys of growing a human but the journey isn’t without its hiccups. Knisley’s illustration style is friendly and comforting and her dialogue humorous and entertaining. Facts about pregnancy and babies woven into her story create surprisingly informative asides and a well-rounded volume for those looking for a quick read. As an expectant mother, I couldn’t recommend this book more.

Because I loved the first novel in this series, I had to read the second part of Edward and Lucardo’s story.  Although the first novel ends on a cliffhanger, the reader isn’t exactly picking up where they left off which drew  me into the story even more. The love and devotion that Edward and Lucardo have for each other only intensifies. Their story continues as they fight for their relationship. Lucardo may win over his friends and family but can Ed and Lucardo withstand Edward becoming ill?

I really enjoyed this book. If you love romance, erotica and graphic novels, or you’d like to experience all three genres together, then I’d highly suggest this book. This was my first time reading anything labeled as an ‘erotic graphic novel’ although Ed and Lucardo’s romance turned out to be much more emotional than physical. The eternally 33 year-old Lucardo makes the first move on his 61 year-old scribe, Edward. The cute couple who are invested in growing a loving relationship with each other find Lucardo’s family wanting anything but for them to stay together.
