When life throws you a curve ball, you have to deal with it as well as you can.
When Rabbit arrived in Gillham, he was only trying to get away from his ex-boyfriend. He never expected to find a pack, a family, but he feels at home in Gillham. Finding his mate makes that feeling even stronger, at least until he realizes Elton isn’t only his mate, but also Samuel’s.
Elton’s in Gillham to visit his brother when he ends up in the middle of a spat for him. He might not know a lot about shifters and mates, but he does know that one human guy having two shifter mates isn’t normal.
Samuel is ready to fight for Elton, and really, it shouldn’t take much with how tiny Rabbit is. But Rabbit reveals himself to be stronger and more stubborn than Samuel had thought, and when Elton gives them an ultimatum, they have to learn to work together—or be without their mate.
They know a three-way mating is possible, but it doesn’t make it easy. Rabbit, Elton, and Samuel all have their own insecurities and problems. Will they manage to work around them and be happy together, or will the stress of having to share a mate make their relationship implode?
I absolutely loved Rabbit by Catherine Lievens. Rabbit’s the twenty-third book in the Gillham Pack series. The book’s well written and nicely edited. I have been eagerly waiting to read this book since being teased by the last page of the book Neriah, 22nd in the series. Who wouldn’t be excited to read about a human that goes to visit his recently mated brother and ends up getting told that he’s the mate of not one but two shifters? And to make matters even more complicated. The two shifters aren’t each other’s mates…they are only the human’s mate. Well, that’s what Elton has to deal with when he goes to visit his brother Connor and his new mate Neriah at the Gillham Pack and is claimed by Cat shifter Rabbit and Wolf shifter Samuel. And like the stereotype that cats and dogs don’t get along, they instantly hate each other and aren’t willing to give up or share Elton. Elton refuses to choose between the two. For him, it’s all or nothing. With the help of the mating bond and Rabbit and Samuel’s desire not to hurt their human mate’s feelings, Rabbit and Samuel will try to get along and become a proper throuple.
However, Rabbit really enjoys pushing all of Samuel’s buttons and getting him all riled up. He can’t seem to help himself although he’s promised Elton that he would try, and really it probably wouldn’t be so bad since Samuel has a hot body. But Rabbit’s only been with the Pack for six months, and he ran away from his clowder for reasons that will be revealed in this book. So he has issues of his own that he’s working on.
Samuel, on the other hand, is an enforcer for the Gillham Pack and although he can’t stand Rabbit, he’s very protective of both Elton and Rabbit. He also has a more serious brooding personality and has a problem with talking about his feelings and communicating.
Elton is a hopeless romantic and believes wholeheartedly in soul mates and couldn’t be happier with his two mates. He moves into the Gillham Pack to be close to his mates and forces everybody to live in the same house together. He’s by far the tallest of the three, but he doesn’t have the muscles that Samuel has. He does know what he wants, and he refuses to settle for less. And unlike his brother, Connor, he isn’t afraid of being mated. He’s looking forward to it.
This book’s hot and steamy, and I couldn’t put it down. I loved all of the sexual chemistry between the three and they have some Kindle melting scenes. Definitely my favorite so far out of the three books in the series that I have read. My only complaint’s that the book while ending in an HEA does end rather abruptly without the introduction to who’s going to be in the next book. I have to say that I kind of missed it. But it’s only a small complaint considering how much I loved the rest of the book.
I can’t wait until the next book comes out so that I can see what happens next.
