I was a little hesitant to read this story after the last one ended so violently. I’m glad I ended up reading it, because it was an excellent story. Jeremy spent the beginning of the story in the hospital recovering from his beating and reflecting on his relationship with Aiden. The rest let us see Aiden and Jeremy’s relationship grow as they both learned to share their feelings with each other. I really enjoyed the time they spent together at home and in the store. There was also a heavy focus on the amazing support provided by a community coming together. By the end, I was tearing up with feelings of happiness.
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.
