    *4.5 stars* Bump by Matthew J. Metzger was a very powerful book, and one that I shouldn't have started late at night. I thought I might just read a few pages, but then I actually couldn't put it down. I stayed up for hours reading, and I'm still thinking about it today. Powerful. Trigger warnings: homophobic and transphobic language, references to suicidal thoughts and depression.

I stayed up for hours reading, and I'm still thinking about it today. Powerful. Trigger warnings: homophobic and transphobic language, references to suicidal thoughts and depression. I've read a number of Matthew's books in the past and have enjoyed them all, but Bump felt different to me. For one, it's a romance... but not totally a genre romance. The book has an established couple in it, and while we do get a lot of their relationship and all of it's complexities in the story, the focus of the book is centered around David and his personal journey through pregnancy. And there is no sex content at all, just an FYI to readers. The story is both straightforward and complicated. I can't even imagine what David went through in this story, and what pregnant trans men have to go through if/when they get pregnant. The dysphoria felt so real and so well described that I started to feel uncomfortable in my skin. The plotting of this book is perfect. The book moves so well and the writing is so fluid that you will have a hard time putting it down. I've read a number of books that haven't grabbed me recently, and this was a book that grabbed me and didn't let me go. I loved that we had two POC MCs and one in a wheelchair. It took me a little while to figure out those details as they aren't explicated stated at the start of the story, but the diversity of this book was very lovely to read. I loved the fact that David's partner was in a wheelchair but none of the story centered around any difficulties that he faced, though we get to see him struggle through some aspects of his physical therapy and recovery. It was all about David, and that really worked for the story. At times, Bump was difficult to read, but I found it to be an extremely rewarding, balanced story. There is angst and pain, but there is so much more. Though I don't have much in common with David, I found myself relating to him and I felt a small hint of what it was like to be in his shoes. Matthew J. Metzger created something powerful with this story. *Copy provided in exchange for an honest review* goodreads|instagram|twitter|blog

    One of the things Matthew Metzger does with considerable aplomb is shine a light on often misunderstood and underrepresented topics through his diverse fiction. Here, he deals with issues such as gender dysphoria, homophobia, transphobia, suicide, disability, mental health and interracial couples, issues that many of us are destined to never properly understand. These are just some of the themes explored in this book and many of his others. Using fiction as a device to impart important messages One of the things Matthew Metzger does with considerable aplomb is shine a light on often misunderstood and underrepresented topics through his diverse fiction. Here, he deals with issues such as gender dysphoria, homophobia, transphobia, suicide, disability, mental health and interracial couples, issues that many of us are destined to never properly understand. These are just some of the themes explored in this book and many of his others. Using fiction as a device to impart important messages is certainly an age-old concept, but Metzger updates its use to include matters that are prevalent and relevant right now. David and Ryan have a mountain of hate and misunderstanding to overcome, and you find yourself getting behind them, hoping they can make it through. The author manages to get his message across without becoming preachy and creates a necessary contrast between the darkness of the plot and the lightness and fun some of the characters bring. Not only does it explore important topics, but it weaves said topics amongst a credible and interesting fictional tale. Well, written, compelling and informative, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It felt very much like a perfect marriage - between the fictional aspects and those that aim to highlight the adversity and hardship the LGBTQIA+ community face in the real world. Not everyone reads non-fiction, so this is the ideal method to reach those people. It also lacks the sickly sweetness of some of the other titles that address similar issues, and I appreciated that authenticity is present throughout in the sense that the novel portrays the struggle and the discrimination that those individuals have to face, often on a daily basis. In my opinion, as Bump illustrates beautifully, love is love no matter who you fall for. I will most definitely be reading more of this author's work, and I urge anyone who would like to know more about the suffering these minority groups/communities face to pick up a copy. Many thanks to NineStar Press for an ARC. I was not required to post a review, and all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. -

    This story is one I was waiting for, completing the three-part picture of trans pregnancies begun in "Married Ones" and completed in "Erik the Pink". Here we have David, a gay trans veterinarian who becomes pregnant after sex with his loving partner although, unlike in the other two stories, David did not take this step on purpose. He always vaguely wanted children, and they've begun discussing adoption, but he isn't at a point in his life where a pregnancy was anything at first but an unwanted This story is one I was waiting for, completing the three-part picture of trans pregnancies begun in "Married Ones" and completed in "Erik the Pink". Here we have David, a gay trans veterinarian who becomes pregnant after sex with his loving partner although, unlike in the other two stories, David did not take this step on purpose. He always vaguely wanted children, and they've begun discussing adoption, but he isn't at a point in his life where a pregnancy was anything at first but an unwanted surprise. And yet... they'd already been hoping to fit children into their life. Both of them love kids. Ryan, David's partner, may be in a wheelchair, but he's a strong capable guy and would be a great father. (David has some chronic health issues, one of which complicates the story. The characters made a debatable choice with risking this, but it's handled believably.) Barring complications, there's no actual obstacle to having this baby, and gifting them with a biological child that is both of theirs. No obstacle, except the impact pregnancy will have on David's body, mind, job, emotions, and heart. This is a powerful book about a loving relationship and two very real, strong, complicated guys who are on the same side. The conflicts are not between the MCs, but against the stress this wanted/unwanted pregnancy will put on David, on the ways they interact, and on the extended family of both accepting and horrible characters. David's challenge is front and center, as he is almost ripped apart by conflicting imperatives - to create a beloved, wanted child, and yet to keep his psyche from being unbearably damaged by the way pregnancy impacts his body and identity both day to day, and in the eyes of the world. Metzger always writes characters who feel real, believable, important to me and emotionally engaging. I picked this book up (as I do all of his now) without reading the blurb, and was immediately pulled into the lives of two men dealing with the challenge of something that brings pain and joy in almost equal measures. In fact, the balance swings back and forth, as hope for the child wars with David's perception that the man he is, is being erased by the pregnancy. This story gave me a very real feel for how even small things can cut deep, how perceptions change minute to minute, and how love and support for each other is what keeps us all together in this difficult world. Highly recommended reading. I'd recommend them in pregnancy order, rather than release order - Married Ones, Bump, Erik the Pink.

    I was extremely excited to read this book based on the concept. Typical MPREG stories are not really my thing, but because I knew this was an ownvoices look at a trans man experiencing pregnancy, I had high hopes that it would be sensitive and realistically written, and in that regard especially, BUMP did not disappoint.

Typical MPREG stories are not really my thing, but because I knew this was an ownvoices look at a trans man experiencing pregnancy, I had high hopes that it would be sensitive and realistically written, and in that regard especially, BUMP did not disappoint. The characters and setting felt well-developed, and the raw emotion that came through, especially in later scenes, was sometimes lovely and sometimes ugly, and always felt very, very real. In addition to the main character, David, and his partner, Ryan, I loved the nuanced portrayals of Ryan’s ex, Marianne, and their daughter, Ava. Young children can be difficult to write, and Metzger really nailed all of the characterizations, Ava included. The writing style was smooth and enjoyable, not overly poetic but with some very nice turns of phrase that provided a strong connection to David’s emotional journey. As a cis woman who has experienced pregnancy, I found certain elements of David’s experience matching my own, and others giving me a unique look at an experience I’ve never had, and helping me to understand (to the degree that a cis person can, anyway) how trans people experience gender dysphoria. It was a powerful reminder of the importance of ownvoices stories as both mirrors and windows for readers. As another reviewer has mentioned, certain aspects of the characters, particularly related to their physical appearances, were sort of “revealed” as the book went along, and I found myself having to revise my own mental image of them as I went. I think I understand the reason for this—the author is possibly attempting to make things like race and disability secondary to things like the way David feels when Ryan smiles at him. While that’s admirable, I’m not sure it entirely worked for me. It wasn’t enough of an issue to make me stop binge reading, or to knock it down to four stars, but readers who rely on strong visual descriptions might be frustrated. Another thing that was, if anything, a plus for me, but might be a minus for others is that this isn’t really a romance. David and Ryan’s relationship is central to the plot, but the relationship ITSELF isn’t the plot. I’d call this more general queer/trans/gay/bi fiction... which again was a plus for me. I loved the focus on the family and on David’s emotional journey. Overall, I’d highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in gay and/or trans fiction. It was an amazing, intensely emotional read.

There’d even been a plan to start looking into adoption and turn their family of three into four. But now there’s a bump, and David doesn’t know what to do. He’s spent years escaping the grip of his own body and burying the past—but there’s no way he can hide from his history if he lets the bump get any bigger. It’s not just his baby; it’s also his breakdown. He doesn’t know if he can do this. Books dealing with this subject matter fascinate me because I can’t begin to imagine the strength it takes to go through with what it’s going to do to your body and your mind, yet it’s something you’ve always wanted. That’s the dilemma David is in right now. He and his partner, Ryan, were in a car accident and his HRT was reduced due to liver issues. Reduced too much, apparently, because what happened was pregnancy. David is a veterinarian, an educated, established man and this rocks his being to the core. This was interesting to me because I remember reading of Thomas Beatie, a transgender man who carried three children with his now ex-wife. The media made it seem so happy and carefree and at the time I wondered how true that could be. Here, it is far from simple. David first can’t even decide whether to keep the baby, knowing what it may to do his core self having to now be seen, again, as female. I did appreciate that David didn’t just make the decision without consulting Ryan, even though Ryan himself puts David before anything. When David makes but can’t keep an appointment for an abortion, it’s a rough time ahead. There were times during this story things weren’t explained until later. Such as, I didn’t realize for a while that Ryan is in a wheelchair and you don’t find out until much later why. Not a huge deal but it did have me going back a couple times to see if I missed something. His status as well, sort of popped out of nowhere and surprised me. David and Ryan are a solid couple and thankfully they talk to each other. When David needs space to deal, Ryan gives it without getting his feelings hurt. David knows he’s being unreasonable sometimes, “I’ll make it up to you.” I just really liked them together. Add in that Ava, at age five, actually acts like a five-year-old and this family seemed real. Alas, Ryan’s brother, Jay, and his mother, Aggie, also seemed too real and disgusting. All I can say is, go pregnant David! We do get Ryan’s mom, who makes up for Ryan’s lack of family sense. The reason for naming the baby Sam was a little heartbreaking. “He’d died because he hurt, not because he’d hurt other people.” David’s feelings on both Ben and Sam, also so real. What this story focuses on is what having this baby that they so want is doing to David. Especially since for years he’s not had to come out as trans. He has been just a man and that will inevitably change. “Because ultimately, David wasn’t a trans man. He was a man. Nothing else. No qualifier.” The dysphoria David suffers comes through loud and clear. When he hears Sam’s heartbeat, it’s not a happy thing for him. “He’d never known he could hear his own dysphoria.” It’s never ending. “He’d been so horrified by his own baby moving that he’d thrown up.” The fact that he’s also dealing with snide comments, stares and the massive waste of space that is Ryan’s brother and mother, well, I’m glad Ryan is who he is. “Knights riding in on white wheelchairs to save the day.” Glad that David has friends such as Vicky who knew him before and support him always. That Ava and Ryan’s ex are there for support as well. That the midwife, Nadia, is what medical professionals should be. From his awkward boss to Ava’s ignorant teacher to sitting in a waiting room full of women, it’s just an emotional slap over and over. We read his struggle and feel his fear that after all this, he’s going to end up with a baby he doesn’t love. This is something I appreciated because not everyone gives birth and has that “hallelujah” moment, this child is perfection. Sometimes those hormones have to settle before you can feel it and that’s a normal thing. This was such an interesting read with a hopeful, happy ending. Definitely would recommend it.

It is unsentimental and factual about the physical side. Trigger warning: the childbirth itself has complications. There is also a young kid. It was so so SO GOOD to not have the kid(s) put into gender boxes. The babies room was painted yellow. There was no vile drivel about f***ing pink rooms, frills, princesses, blue or racing cars.

Not that that’s why I read his books - I do because his stories are wonderful. I don’t want to say much, because it’s better if you just read it. I love that his people are ordinary people, who, like ordinary people, often have shattering backgrounds, but who just keep on going with their lives. I’m always appalled at how bad the UK health system is at dealing with transgender people. In this book there is a bit of a sense that people in that system are trying.

    I was very excited to read this one but despite the fact that I liked it, I didn't at the same time. I have been reading quite a few of Matthew J. Metzger's works and he is an amazing author who writes such unique characters that you can't help but identify with them but I just feel like I have read too many of his works in a rapid progression because I feel like I am reading the same characters again and again.

And just this feeling made me quite distant from David as a character because he doesn't feel like a character in his own right but an amalgamation of characters that I have already met. Also, lately I have really felt like instead of seeing the characters I can see the author underneath. It is an unusual feeling that I haven't ever encountered before and I don't know how I feel about it but it feels like the author has poured in huge chunks of himself into the narrative almost to the point that he is a constant present force within its words. This book is written entirely from David's perspective and I am resenting that we didn't get Ryan's perspective in the story because it would have really breathed some life into this book and made it less like I was reading a character I had already read before. Also, as a health care practitioner, I really can't and will not ever condone unsafe sex and not only in the context of Ryan's story but also, in the way that Ryan and David led their lives. This author always makes me feel like his work is way too personal and anything I say would be taken even more personally but still, I can't not say this. Unsafe sex with a partner you know is HIV positive is stupidity and I really hope nobody gets any ideas from this book. AIDS is a dangerous disease and a low viral load doesn't mean that you won't catch the disease and drugs are not the answer because till date there is no cure. A lot of my problems with this book are my problems with David the character and the biggest reason for that is that no other character gets any significant development. None of the other characters have their own arcs. It's all about David and that was an issue because since I couldn't quite get behind David I had no one else to lean on. This book wasn't it for me.

    4.5 stars The description of this book really grabbed my attention. Getting pregnant unexpectedly might be difficult for anyone, but how much harder might it be for someone who had transitioned to living fully as a man? Bump provides an answer to that question, and it’s not easy to read. A loving couple is at the center of the story, but I wouldn’t consider this a romance.

The real focus is on how David processes what’s happening to him as his pregnancy advances. Not being trans myself, I have no idea what it’s like to experience gender dysmorphia. However, the author does an uncomfortably good job of conveying David’s horror as his body inescapably reminds him that he is still biologically female. David’s mental struggles worsen throughout the pregnancy to the point that he feels suicidal, and that part also feels painfully realistic. The love shared by David and his partner Ryan does provide a counterpoint to all the pain. That love isn’t a solution to David’s skin-crawling feeling of his body being wrong or his suicidal thoughts or his inability to connect to his newborn son after giving birth. Ryan’s unconditional support does give David moments of respite, however, that help him hold on until he can finally go back on hormone treatment. Those small moments of peace and joy between the two of them provide relief to the reader, too. And, finally, the epilogue echoes the opening of the book in a way that highlights how happiness can follow suffering. So, given how dark my description of the story sounds, would I recommend Bump? Definitely. It’s a powerful book, especially for those of us who will never experience gender dysphoria, and well worth reading. A copy of this book was provided through NetGalley for review; all opinions expressed are my own.

His coming to terms with his transition and the plight of his brothers. Thankfully he had the support of his mother who was a hoot. The decision to carry the baby took such sacrifice, that there tells you the parent he will be. The stress of the pregnancy, delivery and aftermath were very realistically portrayed. Marianne, Ryan’s ex, really stepped up to the plate and endeared me to her. There’s a lot to think about here and this one will stick with me for a while. I would highly recommend. Thanks to NetGalley, the author and NineStar Press, LLC for a copy in exchange for a review.

All these are well touched upon in an interesting, and informative way, opening the readers eyes to the realistic things that people face each day. I definitely recommend Bump. It is so well written, has such an important message, and is positively gripping, as well as interesting. I applaud Matthew J Metzger for his ability to tackle this plot with so much integrity.
