The Divine Series by Heather Rainier is one of my favorite series. I could never get tired of it because of the way the author keeps each book fresh and unique. I have to say that Bunny and the Beast is one of my favorite stories yet.
The main reason that I loved this book so much was how the characters stood out. Bunny was righteously funny and she kept Joseph the big bad Dom on his toes. Then factor in that Joseph was so sweet toward Bunny, and it just melted my heart to goo. Not to forget that for all of Bunny’s sass and charm was a vulnerability that gets me every time. So the author had me hooked with these two characters, and that was before I even got to the steamy intimate parts and the BDSM elements.
Now, as usual, Heather Rainier’s writing style was simply wonderful. Her characterization was spot on, Bunny and Joseph were beautifully vibrant and pulled me right into the story. Bunny was a strong heroine, spunky with a touch of vulnerability. Joseph was honest with her from the start about what he expected from the relationship. The entire story was easily paced and the writing quality was every bit as excellent as I had expected. It was probably the most fun read in the series and I enjoyed it very much.
Bunny and the Beast was a very hot read with the BDSM aspect. It was also a multifaceted read that had more than a few laughs and some serious trope that came along from Bunny’s past. The plot hit all the right buttons to keep me interested. I highly recommend this novel, and the series, to anyone who likes a more explicit read that is still a quality story. I look forward to the next book in this wonderful series.
