Summary

Warning: A sense of humor is required for this tongue in cheek, paranormal romance. It contains coarse language and explicit sexual situation meant for open minded adults. Please note, that while no bunnies were permanently harmed in the making of this story, the prognosis isn't so good for the pie.

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. It's 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?

Funny & Sexy

I love bear shifters and the fact that the guy is a bear is a main reason I’ve had Bunny and the Bear on my TBR. Then when I saw it was being released on audio and that Abby Craden was the narrator I knew I had to try it out on audio. Bunny and the Bear is the first story I’ve read about a bunny shifter but Miranda is no ordinary bunny! LOL

Miranda and Chase’s romance was hilarious. Come on, a big and grumpy grizzly bear lusting after a cute little bunny? The sexual references to honey buns and talented bear lips are ones I’ve heard before with bear shifters but they are funny every time. Chase can’t stop thinking about bunny pie and Miranda can’t help but wonder if a bear shifter is big everywhere.

I had a bumpy start with Eve Langlais after DNF Kodiak’s Claim I enjoyed my second attempted at listening to Langlais’ funny and sexy shifters. I’m convinced now that my issue with Kodiak’s Claim was most likely the narrator and will try it again in ebook format instead. But before I do that I’m going to continue with her Furry United Coalition series.

Abby Craden did a great job delivering a grumpy bear and a bouncy bunny. I’ll definitely continue the series on audio and I can’t wait to hear how Craden deliveries the performance for book 2, Swan and the Bear.

How did this narration get approved????????

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The book itself is good. It is a light and cute story

What was one of the most memorable moments of Bunny and the Bear?

The rescue

What didn’t you like about Abby Craden’s performance?

Her narration for voices is easily the worst I have ever heard. The voices have the weirdest pacing, and no voice sounds relatively normal/acceptable. Every voice sounds like she is mocking someone, but the high pitched ridiculous voice for Miranda that is as out of place as it is annoying. The men will alternately sound like Gollum or low pitched off tempo messes

What would have made this romance irresistible?

Better narration

Any additional comments?

Please, PLEASE, rerelease with a better narrator. It is an adorable story ruined by this narration. I thought she would be good, her voice when isn't trying to use a character voice is very good.

Cute story Bad narrator

The voice of this narrator was nail biting. The female lines were tolerable, but Chase was just cringe worthy. The story was cute and humorous, better as a kindle read.

Cute start to a series male bear & female bunny.

Bear is attracted to bunny but is against cross species mating. Bunnies are considered PREY. But, this bunny has special "genes" that make this Bear roar.. This story is cute and the series seems to be going somewhere. I enjoyed KODAK point people so I hope there is some wonderful DIVERSE characters that hook up in future books.. E.L books are entertaining.

Hilarious Start to a Series

This book has been on my radar for a long time. It is no secret that I’m a huge fan of Eve Langlais. I’m also a huge fan of hilarious paranormal romance with shifters of exotic shifters. What I mean by exotic shifters, is the non-standard. The wolf and cat shifters are a dime a dozen these days. Bears are growing a lot too. But I love authors who choose different animals for their shifters and then use those animal traits to their advantage. Eve Langlais does a great job with that in this book with Miranda, our heroine and bunny. There are several other shifter breeds in this book as side characters including a giraffe, swan and crocodile (some of which are in future books, woohoo!!).

Miranda is a bunny and she is also a bubbly blonde who plays the “dumb blonde” card to a tee. Don’t let her fool you though, she isn’t stupid by any shape of the imagination. She is a FUC agent (yes, that is how it is pronounced). There is even mention that the agency was originally, Furry United Coalition and Defense, but people thought FUCD was too vulgar. Miranda may look like a girly-girl, but she knows what she is doing. She is a good agent, she is just using her looks to make people underestimate her.

Chase is a gruff grizzly bear. He is also a probate lawyer. He likes his sleep, sixteen hours on the weekend. He doesn’t like to share his food. He likes things nice and stable. He was able about order and not having things disrupt his life. That is until a bouncing bunny moves in next door.

Chase is on a list of males that are potential kidnap victims. So FUC sends Miranda to move in next to him to help prevent the kidnapping. There is a group kidnapping predator males in their prime for experiments. FUC wants to use the list as bait, but doesn’t want to tell the marks.

This story is very silly, but fun. If you are looking for a more serious PNR with tons of suspense and action, this is probably not the book for you. Yes, there is action and suspense, but the suspense is pretty easy to figure out. This is a story if you are looking for a quick and funny read, which I love to balance out some of the many dark stories that I read.

Narration
This is the first audiobook that I’ve listened to that was narrated by Abby Craden. She really nailed Miranda’s voice in my head. She got that bubbly, always happy voice down pat. Chase’s voice was good too, you could really feel the gruffness in it. He always sounded so grumpy. All the voices were distinct and the tones were well done. I’m excited to listen to her finish off this series.

Bunny and Bear Love

I loved that Miranda pretended to be ditzy so that no one would know what and who she really was and understimated her. I also liked the stubborn nature of Chase, to the point that he did what he really didn't want to do, and that was fall for Miranda.

I'm also very curious about Victor, Jessie and Mason's stories.

I'm a huge fan of Shelly Laurenston aka G.A. Aiken. So I love shifter books that have both comedy and mystery in them. This one was okay, but was missing something. It felt like it was rushing to get done or something.

I will read more, I just need something else first. Hope the series gets better.

Cute story Horrible narration

Any additional comments?

The book seemed cute and light but the narrator was so bad that I couldn't pay attention to the story.

The narrators normal voice was pleasant enough to listen to but when she started changing tones for male characters it really turned me off. I'm not sure this narrator has a clue how to depict a male voice - she clenches her teeth and lowers the pitch a bit and talks through her teeth. The final result is nails-on-a-chalkboard- cringe worthy.

I think the goal was for Chase to have a growly bear voice, but all I got was a bullfrog trying not to croak. Things that may otherwise have sounded sexy came off sounding like a creepy stalker. The problem wasn't only with Chase's voice - every single guy sounded like a cross between a bullfrog and a creepy dude talking with his teeth clenched. The female interpretations were ok - they mostly sounded ditzy but that's a stylistic choice.

In terms of story content it didn't really work for me. This seemed a bit like a rated x high school romance - in that you have two emotionally immature people who lust after each others bodies and decide they must be in love. Nothing in their weird interactions suggested any emotional connection - just pure lust and sexual drive. - and honestly several times without insight in to the female protagonists mind (which he doesn't) and knowing she's consenting the male protagonist could probably get charged with rape. However, I know that that is an enjoyable stylistic choice for some readers so i wasn't surprised by it.

I think with more time and space the story could have been pretty good. The premise and parts of the execution were done really well.
