A Granby Knitting Novel
After three years of waiting for “rabbit” Jeremy to commit to a life in Granby—and a life together—Aiden Rhodes was appalled when Jeremy sustained a nearly fatal beating to keep a friend out of harm’s way. How could Aiden’s bunny put himself in danger like that?
Aiden needs to get over himself, because Jeremy has a long road to recovery, and he’s going to need Aiden’s promise of love every step of the way. Jeremy has new scars on his face and body to deal with, and his heart can’t afford any more wounds.
When their friend’s baby needs some special care, the two men find common ground to firm up their shaky union. With Aiden’s support and his boss’s inspiration, Jeremy comes up with a plan to make sure Ariadne’s little blackbird comes into this world with everything she needs. While Jeremy grows into his new role as protector, Aiden needs to ease back on his protectiveness over his once-timid lover. Aiden may be a wolf in student’s clothing and Jeremy may be a rabbit of a man, but that doesn’t mean they can’t walk the wilds of Granby together.
Review: I know what your are going to say. Why are you reviewing this book, the entire earth has read it because it’s Jeremy Bunny? Three reasons. 1. It’s on my list and like the good reviewer I am I get to read this book one more time. *sigh* 2. Not everyone has read this series. I KNOW! But people get caught up in Amy’s Johnnies and other beautiful books and somehow they miss these. It’s crazy. 3. This book recently became available on audio book! *squeeee!!*
This is a beautiful book where we get to see Jeremy and Aiden grow from a new love to forever love. Their journey has not been an easy one. I highly suggest reading the other books in the series or you will miss a lot of the complexity, especially How to Raise an Honest Rabbit. This book starts in the midst of pain and we walk a path of healing with these men that started in other books.
Aiden is not a boy next door. We see glimpses of his intensity and layers in earlier books, but in this one we see the true wolf he is. He loves Jeremy, but he also struggles to find a balance between protectiveness and allowing Jeremy space to find health and home. I adore him. I loved his fierce nature and passion. I loved watching him struggle with balance. He is superb.
Jeremy Bunny. Oh, our beautiful man who is broken and searching for home and love… His beautiful sweet spirit and devotion draw you in. He doesn’t have a malicious bone in his body, but that doesn’t mean he is the most open guy. And he struggles to let people love him and he struggles finding forgiveness for his past.
If you are looking for a new series to dig into. One with beautiful depth, some entertaining characters and comfort-healing, this book, this entire series is for you.
