An Alisa Review: Chasing His Cottontail (Hoppity Shifter #1) by A.R. Barley


Rating:  4 stars out of 5


Peter’s been half in love with Luke Holland for as long as he can remember, but his best friend’s very human brother has always been off limit, but when werewolves come to town this bunny shifter is going to have to decide whether he’s ready to fight for what he’s always wanted.


Luke Holland is tall, dark, and human. He’s also off limits for daisy obsessed bunny shifter, Peter. But when werewolves start hunting Peter in the woods around New Hope he’s going to need Luke’s help to fight the intruders. Of course, when Luke discovers the truth about Peter he’s never going to stop chasing his cottontail.


I liked this story even with the contradictory actions of the characters at times.  Peter hides from some werewolves and ends up as Luke’s pet.  When Luke discovers Peter’s secret he wants to protect and hold on to him.


We see how these characters really feel about each other even when they are trying to keep it away from the other.  Peter refuses to take away Luke’s choice about being with him while his actions are making Luke think that he doesn’t want him.  They all work together to make sure Peter is safe and happy even if it isn’t what the other wants.  This was essentially a really sweet story with connections to the story we all knew as kids with Peter getting the name Cottontail as a pet and him eating from Mrs. McGregor’s garden.


The cover is nice and gives a great visual for Luke and Peter’s bunny.
