Of course, when Luke discovers the truth about Peter he’s never going to stop chasing his cottontail.
Review: When I saw the title of this story, I knew that I had to read it. Anything with bunnies will usually give you a laugh. Then I found out that it was a m/m pregnancy type story and it was a definite got to buy. This is the first book by this author that I have read and I will say that I am impressed. I usually don’t read books by authors that I have not heard of or have not read yet. I am a bit picky about my stories.
Although the fact that a rabbit shifter is called Peter is a bit overdone to me. He is a funny little character who is definitely quirky as hell, he has had the hots for his best friend’s brother for quite some time, but he was also as shy as one can be. To top it off rabbit shifters were just like rabbits in the wild, they mate and have many babies even if they are males. But when werewolves show up, he knows Luke will protect him. Things are about to get real interesting.
Now it is a funny story but a bit disappointing as well. It mentions how male rabbits can get pregnant and mate for life, however there is no male rabbit getting pregnant in this book. So I have to say I was not as pleased as I thought I would have. Other than that it is a little bit dry and didn’t give me all that I wanted in a story. However those are my issues with the book, other than that it was a real blast to read.
I do hope that in the next book there are some baby rabbits floating around for Peter and Luke. I did feel bad for Luke’s brother Benji and I want to know what the alpha of the Chicago werewolves is about but will gladly wait to see what happens in the next book.
