Book Blurb

They know a thousand ways to kill...and zero ways to love.

Baxter is the Battle Bunny everyone stares at. He's pierced in places that make life interesting, as snarky as they come, and so lonely his heart screams out for someone to simply acknowledge his existence. When someone does, Bax feels as though he has to fight everyone, including his own brothers, to keep the man that speaks to his soul.


Dominic O'Leary had been the alpha of his pack when they were betrayed and turned over to the scientists. By the time he escaped, his pack was decimated and Dominic and his brother had been changed forever. Discovering his mate among a family of bunnies should have brought him great joy, but the scientists took that from him with their sick experiments. 


When Baxter's family prevents him from claiming his mate, Dominic must use an ancient and seldom used law to force them to allow him time with Bax. But an interfering family seems to be the least of their problems. People are getting sick, the baby won't stop crying, and the vampire who owns their abandoned mansion is back. No one ever said life was easy, but does it have to be so damn hard?


Book Review

In this second book of the ‘Battle Bunnies’ series, it’s Baxter who meets his mate, an alpha wolf who works for the council and goes by the name of Dominic. But they face more than one issue: the evil scientists who experimented on Dominic caused a change that means he no longer has a scent – and without that, Baxter can’t be sure Dominic is his mate. And that results in the overprotective oldest brother, head of the legendary Battle Bunnies, to go into full protective mode and attempting to keep the wolf away from Baxter. Added to the external issues they continue to have, Baxter and Dominic have their hands full trying to mate and stay alive.

Baxter is just a little different from his brothers. My guess is they all are, considering that Bailey from book one is blind, but Baxter feels his differences more intensely than the others. He also doesn’t want the differences to go away. So it’s not just his piercings that set him apart. But when a half-crazed with lust alpha wolf comes after him, Baxter isn’t so sure he wants to stand out anymore. He can’t smell Dominic, but he does feel drawn to him – if only his stupid oldest brother would stop interfering! Given a few moments alone, Baxter is sure he’d be able to figure it out. But that is not meant to be.

Dominic knows that Baxter is his mate, he can smell him just fine. He hates how overprotective Baxter’s brothers are, and decides his only chance is to take extreme measures. The Solvency Rule may not be known to the bunnies, which doesn’t help, but luckily Bailey’s mate, Vey the gargoyle, is well aware how it works. He and Dominic’s brother make sure all goes as it is supposed to – until external events interfere and Dominic ends up fighting for his and his mate’s life.

I was pretty much ready to strangle Baxter’s meddling brothers and think Dominic was still pretty nice to them. These personal issues and the added external stress, new discoveries, and more mystery around the scientists and their experiments made for a very exciting adventure with some hints as to who is next. I can’t wait!

If you like a little humor with your paranormal stories, if two men who want to mate but are stopped by unwilling family and chaotic events are your thing, and if you’re looking for a read that is suspenseful, full of new mysteries, and some hot action between the sheets, then you will probably like this novella.
