Benjamin Holland (Benji to those who know him) was introduced in book one of the Hoppity series as Peter’s best friend and brother to the man who became Peter’s mate, Benji’s brother Luke. Benji had a bit of a crush on his friend and sort of hoped they would pair up, but unfortunately, Peter never saw him that way. Peter was also unaware, until he was under threat, that Benji had become a werewolf hunter! While hunting a rogue wolf in Minnesota, he comes across what he thinks is a bunny shifter and ends up taking him back to Chicago. Justin did want to leave Minnesota, he just was not sure on the how but had not expected it to be via a werewolf hunter!
The story is told from Benji and Justin’s alternating point of view.
The second book in the Hoppity series, the follow up to Chasing His Cottontail, and now that you know some of the back story, this one is even more of an adventure than the first one. I must admit, I was hoping the second book would be Benji’s story as he seemed like a very interesting character in the first book and we get another couple of scenes with Mikhail, the Alpha from Chicago. I do hope a book is planned for him, like Benji, he seems like a character you want to learn more about!
However, we have this story first, where Benji, because of his knowledge of rabbit shifters, believes that is who is being chased by his rogue wolf. Then he wants to protect the rabbit, while fulfilling his mission, but feels the need to hide the rabbit from the questionable wolves at the end of it. He figures he likely won’t see them again anyway…turns out he’s wrong!
I liked Justin, he was quite innocent as his warren had intentionally kept things from members, so he sometimes thought he was stupid, as one shifter liked to tell him that. Sadly, it was the one he was supposed to mate with, and the one he ran from! And I liked the dynamic between Benji and Justin, I already liked Benji from the first book, and it showed the depth of his character that he did not get impatient with Justin, asking questions and explaining things when he realized Justin just did not know.
Benji feels like he is still a bit hung up on Peter, Justin was escaping an arranged marriage with someone who was mean to him, but they are definitely attracted to one another. However, they both know that if they follow through, it is not a one and done! And with Justin’s past following them to Chicago, is now the right time?
If you like shifter stories that are drama/adventure stories, I think you’ll enjoy this and the character growth of both of them through the story, was really interesting, it had a great pace and I really didn’t want it to end! There are definitely some hot scenes, but character journey seems to be the primary focus of the story and I’m looking forward to the next one!

When werewolf hunter meets bunny shifter, romance is the last thing either one of them expects to find... but
Benjamin Holland is a werewolf hunter--and a pretty successful one. He's hunting a rogue wolf in Minnesota when he trips over a bunny shifter and takes the twitchy nosed little dude back to Illinois. It's strictly catch and release. He needs to get laid, but after getting his heart crushed by his best friend Peter he's not looking for a forever mate.
Mating is the last thing on Justin's mind. He's just escaped an arranged marriage to his warren's next Rex. He wants to make up for lost time and build a life for himself in Chicago, but the more time these two spend exploring the city together the better they get along. When Justin's ex-fiance tracks him down to the city, they're going to have to decide if forever might just start with one magical night.
This was a great follow up to Chasing His Cottontail. Benjamin has been dealing with the rejection of his best friend but can’t help but want to protect another bunny shifter when he rescues him. Justin is running away from the man he has been promised to and the violence he has been living in.
Justin will do anything he can to prove to Benjamin that he is a worthy mate while at the same time Benjamin loves to take care of Justin. I loved Benjamin realizing that is he had ended up with Peter it would not have been right so there was no reason for him to be upset. They definitely look forward to their future together and making a family. We get to see glimpses of Peter and Luke too which was nice. I couldn’t help but think that Justin would want to see his family but maybe after being promised to an abusive jerk he doesn’t feel the need.
The cover is wonderful and gives a great visual for Benjamin and Justin’s bunny
Ben is a human werewolf hunter. Werewolves in this world are apparently like the mafia. I’ll need to read the first book, Chasing His Cottontail for more information on that, but it’s enough to know there are protocols, favors, and consequences. Ben is chasing a feral werewolf who killed a teenaged girl for refusing to go to the prom with him, when he literally stumbles over a bunny. Something I Ben’s shifter hunter senses indicates this is no ordinary rabbit, so he takes him home where he discovers he is exactly right.
Justin is a bunny shifter, adorable in either form. He’s been promised to a Rex (leader of a rabbit warren), although you need to keep reading as there is more to the story than that. This little novella packs quite a wallop in the plot department.
Ben and Justin are slow, in Justin’s mind, to mate, but Ben has his reasons. The story is so exciting that you won’t miss a bunch of sex scenes. Oh, and if you read Chasing His Cottontail you’re in for a bit of a surprise near the end of Talk Bunny to Me.
While there is a HEA for Ben and Justin there is so much more to be told, with favors asked and payment owed to the local werewolf Alpha. This is such a juicy story! I can hardly wait for the next book! And in my case, the first one, as well.
