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.
Chase Brownsmith is the epitome of his inner grizzly, grumpy, solitary, committed to food, sleep and “no strings attached “sex when absolutely necessary, and in that order. He is a firm believer in not mixing species, and when he does finally settle down it will be with another bear, but that is wayyy in the future. Super blonde and bubbly Miranda is an undercover agent with FUC (Furry United Coalition), who is supposed to keep Chase from becoming the latest victim of whoever is snatching pureblood weres, conducting torturous experiments, and then killing them. Chase thinks Miranda is an airhead who moved in just to make his life miserable, but she smells an awful lot like honey.
I love Eve Langlais’ work. Her characters are fun, snaky and sexy and the stories are always smoking hot and entertaining. This book leans more to the cute side. Miranda would look right at home in an episode of “The Girls Next Door”, but only her cover is in reality an airhead. Miranda is keeping some BIG secrets. I love Chase, he is so terminally grumpy and has absolutely no idea what to do with an energizer bunny like Miranda. (well, he does have some thoughts on the matter). This book looks like the start of a continuing series (fingers crossed). If this is the case, I really want to know more about Mason, Chase’s brother. He definitely sounds like more than your average bear.
You will have to remember that a lot of this book is written tongue in cheek and the characters are meant to be over the top, otherwise you might go into a cuteness coma. This book is a perfect pick me up for days when life has got you down. There is no way you could read this book and not have a smile on your face. I guarantee you it will have you laughing by the time you finish, but I do offer you a warning. You may never look at pie the same way ever again.
