Title: Hired For His Womb

Publication Date: Sept 4, 2020

Genres: Erotica, Science Fiction

Shelves: Female-dominant, Transgender

An exciting tale of office politics, gender roles, and the power exchange, Hired For His Womb is deeper and more thoughtful than you’re likely expecting. I was intrigued by the concept, but it was what Phoenix Rose had to say about the relationship dynamic, character motivations, and unorthodox desires that promoted my curiosity to must-read.

Take away the gender-bending component, and the story itself is a simple one. A desperate young candidate accepts a job at a firm with a less-than-stellar ethical reputation and is immediately taken advantage of by the boss. In fact, minus the pregnancy aspect, it’s probably a story most readers have encountered before, one that plays with some potentially dark power exchange taboos. Where all of that shifts, however, is with one simple declaration:

I would be the first career woman who managed to outsource pregnancy to a man.

Suddenly we have a very different story on our hands. Weave in the personalities of a submissive young man with a healthy curiosity about the opposite gender and a driven career woman who enjoys the exercise of power, and it becomes something exciting. We experience Noah’s journey as he discovers the joys of being a woman, and Sabrina’s as she realizes how that futa appendage feeds her love of power and control. Layer a slow-burn, frustrated romance on top of all that, and suddenly you have a novella that makes you care about where all of this is headed. We watch as both characters struggle with feelings and emotions that are new to them, and we quietly become invested in their romance as each begins to question what could be.

The erotic elements here are well-done, complete with vivid descriptions and naughty dialogue, but it’s with the after-climax cuddling (and Sabrina’s questioning of whether it’s appropriate) that the real story emerges. Once Hired For His Womb shifts from kinky erotica to heartfelt romance, the whole story blossoms and becomes that deeper, more thoughtful tale.
