What’s a poor bear to do when all he wants is some sweet, bunny pie?
Bears and bunnies aren’t supposed to mix, or that’s what Chase keeps telling himself when his bouncy new neighbor won’t stay out of his business—and his mind. However, the more he gets to know his overly perky neighbor, the more he craves her—naked in his grasp—a desire worse than his addiction to honey and pie.
Miranda’s on a mission for the Furry United Coalition, and it involves secretly guarding one grumpy ol’ bear. Staying focused on the job isn’t easy when all she can think about is turning his frown upside down, a task made harder when she gets a glimpse of his passion. When she hears about his theory on woodland creatures and predators not mixing, she thinks all is lost, but she didn’t count on a bear’s curious nature—and possessive need.
When an evil force abducts Chase, Miranda unleashes her bunny in order to save him, but the revelation of her shifter side puts her in danger. Is one ornery bear enough to save her from a mad scientist? And if he does, can a bear forget her woodland creature status long enough to love her and make her his mate?
Warning: Pies were harmed in the making of this story and naughty references made about honey that might offend some readers.
Bunny and the Bear is the sixteenth (16) book I’ve read using the Scribd service and the first book in the Furry United Coalition (F.U.C.) series by Eve Langlais. This book is currently on sale at Kobo for $3.99. I am a long standing Eve Langlais fan so I did not discover her via Scribd.
So. This is the book that started it all (for F.U.C., of course). Strangely enough, this is the last book in the series that I have read. And I can say that…I wish I’d read it first. Over and over again the reader is told that Miranda, the heroine, is an annoying badass…and I finally get to see why. And she is. An annoying badass. Really annoying so far. She’s super bouncy and it’s kinda driving me batty. Also, as I’ve done this four times already, the jokes are already worn a little thin.
Early in the book there’s a rescue scene and…the MCs have a freaking conversation about attraction. WTF? I hate stuff like that – get your priorities in order and talk about BS emotions after the gunfire is done. Mkay?
Other than that, Bunny and the Bear was actually funny but I could tell it wasn’t…as well developed as later books in the F.U.C. series. I’d still recommend Bunny and the Bear – with the caveat that it needs to be read first.
“Damned bunnies and their sunny natures. How could he properly rebuke her with her grinning like the world’s cutest simpleton? A guy bunny he could have cuffed upside the head, but a girl one… Somehow he didn’t think gagging her with his cock was the way to chastise her.”
“Chase’s eyes almost bugged out of his head as he watched her go from curvy seductress to a thickly muscled, white-haired bunny with a giant cottontail and huge, floppy ears. But it wasn’t until she turned and displayed foot long fangs that he laughed. And he laughed some more as the guards came pouring through the door and Miranda—an honest to Ursa, saber-toothed rabbit—stomped on their asses while twitching her whiskers. She even stopped for the occasional nibble that resulted in piercing shrieks of terror.
Something about her primal shape and action called to his bestial side. A surge of adrenaline shot through him, dissolving the last of the drug. A moment later, his beast burst through his skin, a thousand pounds of pissed off—and somewhat aroused—grizzly.
Between the pair of them, they swept through the guards and their flimsy weapons, the occasional sting of a bullet making him roar in rage. However, it was the flamethrower that singed Miranda’s fur that threw him off the edge, especially when she finally squealed in pain.
Hurt my fluffy bunny, will you?
The following moments were a red-tinged blur as he took care of the humans who dared hurt his Miranda. The idiot with the flamethrower screamed the loudest when Chase yanked off his arm and beat him with it. When that stopped being fun, he tore out his throat.”
Bunny and the Bear was read via Scribd but after my 90 day trial ended. I will count it as part of the total books read and money saved but technically I ended up paying for two months ($17.98) of Scribd because I forgot I had the subscription.
