Bunny And The Bear (Furry United Coalition 1) by Eve Langlais

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?

Reviewer: Dolce Amore
First I must make a confession – this review won't even try to be objective because I love Ms Langlais’ writing style and themes and have read all of her books. Some of them I liked more, some less, but enjoyed all of them. And in my opinion Bunny and the Bear is the best the author has produced so far.

Miranda the bunny shifter and Chase the bear are poles apart. While she is sunny and perky, full of energy, he is staid, grumpy and can be rude, especially if somebody disturbs his sleeping hours. But there is an attraction between them that slowly morphs into something more.

Their meeting isn’t a coincidence. Miranda is in fact an agent for the Furry United Coalition, an organization whose purpose is to protect shapeshifters and keep their existence a secret. She is sent to watch over Chase because they suspect his life could be in danger. Someone’s targeting the shapeshifters whose names appear on the list of the best fit males, of which Chase is also one. About a dozen went missing and one recovered as a coprse - and not an ordinary shapeshifter corpse at that.

In the midst of their budding romance Chase is kidnapped and Miranda races to his rescue, aided by her team. She finds the place where he is held prisoner, and he finds out just what kind of rabbit is she…you’d never guess! But it remains to be seen whether they can work together so they can find their way out - and whether Chase’s love is strong enough to make the bunny his mate.

The story was a rollicking good read, I got lost in it and didn’t return to the real world until I finished it. Ms Langlais spices the drama with lots of humor, she made me laugh so many times I lost count. And I just loved Chase and Miranda and their strange relationship. Although Chase desires her, he fights the attraction because he’s very mindful of keeping his bloodline pure. However, Miranda is full of tricks that she uses to entice and tantalize him so it’s real fun watching them interacting.

Like I said, a great book – one of the best of its genre I’ve ever read, so I’ll give it 4.5 stars.
