Review: Static by L.A. Witt

After two years together, Alex has been dreading the inevitable moment when Damon learns the truth: that Alex is a shifter, part of a small percentage of the population able to switch genders at will. Thanks to a forced implant, though, Alex is suddenly static—unable to shift—and male. Overnight, he’s out to a world that neither understands nor tolerates shifters . . . and to his heterosexual boyfriend.

Damon is stunned to discover his girlfriend is a shifter, and scared to death of the dangers the implant poses to Alex’s health. He refuses to abandon Alex, but what about their relationship? Damon is straight, and with the implant both costly and dangerous to remove, Alex is stuck as a man.

Stripped of half his identity and facing serious physical and social ramifications, Alex needs Damon more than ever, but he doesn’t see how they can get through this.

Especially if he’s static forever.

At some point while reading Static I no longer saw Alex as a man or a woman. A little later on I no longer saw Damon as heterosexual or homosexual. What I did see were two amazing people trying to get past something that neither one has much control over. The shifter aspect of this book makes a very unique read while making it impossible for me to put it into the tidy little male male romance genre box.

Stepping into a book where the characters are two years into a relationship made the romance minimal at times, but the overcoming of odds makes that easily overlookable. Alex struggles everyday with what he is. Damon struggles to come to terms with the fact that the person he loves is still the same, yet vastly different. Static is a heavy book that deals with many impossible situations. The love truly does concur all element makes it a heartwarming tale. Review:
