MyTBRList

My TBR List is a meme hosted by Michelle @ Because Reading where we get some help picking out what to read next. We sit for hours looking through our TBR lists wondering when we will ever get to that one book we were dying to read when we added it 3 months ago or maybe even a year. So each month we pick 3 books from our TBRs and let everyone else vote on which one to read. We announce the book the second week and by the end of the month, we review it!

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

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 FELT like a Naughty Zootopia. And seeing as I LOVE Zootopia and I LOVE Naughty, it worked well for me. Let me explain…

Ways that Bunny and the Bear reminded me of Zootopia:

  • The main character, Miranda, is a bunny who is often underestimated because she’s little and a bunny – she’s not, but most bunnies are herbivores and seen as non-threatening. She’s actually an undercover agent for the shifter community (called FUC – Fury United Coalition – lol!). Tell me you can see what I’m seeing here…!
  • Lots of very large, predator types (that word isn’t used, but there’s an obvious predator-prey divide going on) are going missing mysteriously. Our little Bunny is on the task to take care of/protect a big bear, Chase.
  • Though the story is unfinished so far, it’s clear that the one orchestrating all this is some little, presumably weak animal… aka prey. Sound familiar? If it turns out to be a sheep I’m going to laugh my ass off.
  • It made me laugh and smile quite a lot, just like Zootopia.

Of course there are some MAJOR ways this was different from Zootopia. For one, they’re shifters, not ACTUAL animals. And Miranda is taken seriously by all who really know her – she’s not working to prove herself, like in Zooptopia. Though she plays the bubbly, dumb bunny card really well!

And the BIG DIFFERENCE: Lots of Sex – talk of sex, thinking about sex, and having sex. I have to admit, some of the sex talk and thoughts were a little ridiculous. But the ridiculous – “honey buns” and “bunny pie” – usually just made me laugh.

I wish it were longer and more complete, but Bunny and the Bear was a great pick and I definitely plan to finish the series, not to mention read more from Eve Langlais!

3.5 stars pretty good

    I watched Zootopia not too long ago and I really enjoyed it. So hearing you describe this one as a naughty Zootopia does sound promising. I think I have this one, grabbed it when it was free one day. I really like the idea of a bunny shifter. I recently read a book with a squirrel shifter and it made me think how few prey animal shifters you see in books. Glad to hear you enjoyed this one!

    Woot! I’m so happy you had a good time with Bunny and her Bear, Berls! I kinda thought you would. I need to continue the series myself. (buddy read?) And I love the Zootopia comparison. Of course, it wasn’t out when I read Bunny but YESSS! Totally see the parallels. Anyway, I’m glad you got some giggles…you needed them, right?? 😉
    I hope you’re having a great weekend. I spent most of yesterday freezing outdoors at an indoor percussion competition. LOL Yeah, they all have to be outdoors warming up, etc., before getting to go inside to perform. And winter decided it wasn’t quite done with us. 😉 Not that I’m complaining…it was just cold! Miss you!!! {{{BIG HUGS}}}

    LOL Berls – welcome to the world of FUC! I love this series, both because the over-the-top humor and because there are some extremely unlikely shifters here. All the books in this series have made me laugh out loud (and sometimes also got me all hot and bothered;))
    Great review!
    Have a wonderful weekend and happy reading {{{HGUS}}}
