Hard-working, strong, and sassy, Bunny Carrigan desires a simple life, far away from the complications of the big city, posh houses, and materialism. She makes her own rules and has no time for pushy men in fancy suits or playing games.
Joseph Hazelle enjoys taking control and has very set ideas about what the ideal submissive looks and acts like. In fact, his ideas are so set they might as well be concrete. Vibrant and full of life, Bunny challenges Joseph’s preconceived notions and she’s determined that if she submits at all, it’s going to be on her own terms.
Accustomed to being the instructor, Joseph discovers that Bunny has claimed his lonely heart and has a thing or two to teach him. All he has to do is educate her about his world and convince her that she does indeed “do” submission. What could go wrong?
Bunny has many misconceptions when it comes to the world of dominance and submission. She knows Joseph is deeply involved in that world so steers clear in spite of her attraction. But she is fighting a battle not so much against Joseph but against herself. Will she dip her toes in the water and satisfy her curiosity?
Bunny and the Beast by Heather Rainier is the twenty-second installment of the Divine Creek series. I adore this series by Ms. Rainier and I was not disappointed with this addition. Bunny is living with her grandmother, raising her brother, and working in a male dominated field. She doesn’t think she has a submissive bone in her body until she meets Joseph. Joseph makes her feel things. Things that make her uncomfortable. I love seeing Joseph slowly tempt Bunny even as she tempts him. I adored seeing this sweet side to Joseph front and center. We have seen Joseph in previous books but Ms. Rainier peeled back the layers of this man and I loved the character she unveiled. Bunny’s own curiosity was her undoing and Joseph was ready, willing and able to satisfy not only her curiosity but also her body.
I thoroughly enjoyed this addition to this series by Ms. Rainier and I am looking forward to finding out who is next to find their happily ever after in one of my favorite fictional towns.
