Marshall Dyson wants one thing and one thing only: to raze his grandfather’s island to the ground. Everything is ready to go…except for all the freakin’ bunnies. The island is covered in hundreds of the furry critters, hopping about and multiplying before his eyes. And to add to the annoyingly cute, fluffy misery, Marshall has to contend with the American Bunny League taking him to court to save them. Including one distractingly beautiful veterinarian...
Dr. Augusta “Gus” North can’t believe the infuriating and annoyingly hot builder cares more about leveling some cabin than the lives of hundreds of sweet bunnies. But when the judge orders Marshall to stay on the island and help Gus rehome the rabbits—for an entire month—it’s time to lay some ground rules. Starting with absolutely no kissing.
But with all the fighting and getting under each other’s skin, keeping their hands off each other is harder than herding bunnies…
The Kissing Contract
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Entangled Publishing via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This book was hilarious is spots when I just cracked up out loud. I especially loved the sayings on Augusta's (Gus) clothing. I loved Marshall and his innuendos. Gus on the other hand was a bit self-centered. I also couldn't understand as to why it would take 4 weeks to clear the island of bunnies. I realize that it is just a story but it seemed a little unrealistic to me.
The book was slow at times almost to the point where I really wanted to skip parts. It really seemed like sections were just repeating themselves. I felt the book could have either been shorter or the when the ending was finally here to actually draw that portion out a little bit.
I was grateful for the book being written in a dual POV format. This book should only be read by someone over the age of 18 due to the sexual nature in places.
I am giving 4 stars instead of 3 because there were some really great parts to this story.
I’ve read other books by Amy Andrews, enough to know going in that I would enjoy the story. I had no problem ignoring the made up bunny census stuff, because, well…. Bunnies! The graphic language was a little more than I was expecting from other books, but other than that it’s great.
This book was totally WILD!! One veterinarian trying to save hundreds of bunnies and one builder determined to level the island they are inhabiting. I knew from the blurb that this was going to be an insane ride and it definitely was. I loved the banter in this book so much. Marshall and Gus are totally at odds and not looking forward to working with each other to eradicate the bunny problem but being forced by court order to do just that just increased their animosity. The chemistry between Marshall and Gus was instantaneous and completely off the charts. There's a thin line between love and hate and these two straddled it for a long time. There were so many great characters and so much hilarity in this story that I couldn't put it down. There were definitely some weird word choices that I just couldn't seem to get over so I had to drop a star from this otherwise fantastic book.
