Book Review: Bunny and the Bear by Eve Langlais

Bunny and the Bear
Author: Eve Langlais
Publication: CreateSpace (August 11, 2011)

Description: 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, 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: A sense of humor is required for this tongue in cheek, paranormal romance. Please note, that while no bunnies were permanently harmed in the making of this story, the prognosis isn't so good for the pie.

My Thoughts: If you are looking for something with the same quirky humor as Shelly Laurenston but want a few more sex scenes, try this story. I liked both Chase and Miranda. Chase is a grizzly bear who is also an estate lawyer. He is solitary and cranky. Miranda is a bunny shifter who works for FUC (Furry United Coalition). She is bubbly and friendly and rather dangerous. She is assigned to protect Chase, without his knowledge, from someone who seems to be targeting strong shifters. They are being abducted and experimented on.

Miranda has to work pretty hard to work her way into Chase's life. He thinks she is really sexy but she isn't the kind of girl he is looking for. He wants someone quiet, tidy, a good cook, and easy on the eyes. And, by the way, she should be a bear so that he can keep his bloodline pure. But the best laid plans of a bear are no match for the determination of this bunny.

There are lots of funny moments and some serious ones too as the two of them fall in love. He is abducted. She rescues him but gets hurt in the process. Seeing her hurt really rouses his protective instincts and changes the way he looks at her. After all, she doesn't turn into a little, fluffy woodland type bunny when she shifts. She becomes a large, fanged werebunny who is almost a match for a grizzly. 

This was a cute romance. I recommend it. 

Favorite Quote:
Chase had always held a serious view of life. In his world, a bear should work hard, eat a lot, and sleep even more. Friendships took away from those three tasks, and in the case of food, expected sharing. 
I bought this one. You can get your copy here.


  1. I gotta buy the book after reading this review :)

  2. I'm always looking for authors whose style is somewhat similar to Shelly Laurenston and I was very glad to stumble across Eve's books. I've read a few and really enjoyed them. I'd also recommend Dana Marie Bell's shifter books.
