I am known by many names. My beloved mother called me Flopsy Lapin. Lady Grace Satin jokes that I am the wickedest rabbit in all of the world. Her father, Lord Satan, dares to label me a mobster street rabbit. You, my friend, may call me the Godrabbit.

Lady Grace is the only female I lust after. My bloodstained hands are unworthy of holding her, so when a high-class hooker with Lady Grace's face, voice, scent, and everything else, wanders into my casino, I make her an offer she can't refuse. This leads to a night I will never forget.

This cute and funny yet very passionate and sexy story had me giggling and sighing both in equal measure.

Ms. Sax completely cracks me up with some of the dialogue and clever bunny quips she comes up with in the telling of her tale, The Godrabbit. As soon as Grace, the heroine, spouted, “That would so bite the big carrot”, I grinned from ear to ear and I was hooked.

The story is told in first person point of view but the chapters alternate between the hero and the heroine. I liked that because I could understand what drove both of them to do what they did.

I enjoyed the naughtiness of the heroine’s actions because they were hot and daring yet tentative because of her innocence. She had no clue what she was doing but the emotions that drove her to do what she did and why were slowly revealed. She’s a woman who puts on a front for the world at large but as soon as she feels the freedom of privacy behind closed doors, a reader is in for a treat. So is the hero. I also found it funny that Flopsy’s performance wasn’t what she expected and I snickered when Grace’s internal dialogue revealed what she intended to do to him.

Flopsy is the Godrabbit and the hero to Grace’s heroine. This isn’t your normal bunny tale that's for sure. As soon as the action starts when Grace walks into the room, Flopsy is as commanding and demanding as any other alpha readers are used to seeing, be it wolf or big cat. He is a man who demands and expects respect and after reading this story, he’s earned it and deserves it. After awhile, I got to understand why he never approached Grace before and if anyone deserves a happily ever after, believe it or not, it is Flopsy. I enjoyed his irreverent outlook on Grace’s father and his cronies. I also enjoyed his very sensual and kinky seduction of Grace. What a treat for readers of erotic romance.

I have to say that this review is actually hard to write. I want to spill bunny-isms all over the place because Ms. Sax used them in such clever ways that they amped my enjoyment to the max. I loved how she incorporated bunny talk in all aspects of their lives. No other paranormal does that. They mostly talk and act human with only references to what they are during sex. Not Ms. Sax, she created her shifters to revel in their otherness with no apologies.

I really wish this story was longer with more time to explore the Godrabbit and his mobster role and how exactly Grace is going to fit in with his lifestyle because they really are good together. The dynamics of their places in society and what they mean to each other made for fascinating reading. I want more. I really wanted to understand how a werebunny got to be so formidable in the first place. It’s a great concept.

The Godrabbit is an extremely fun romance paired with sensual and deliciously naughty scenes sure to keep readers riveted. I was enjoying myself so much on so many different levels that time flew and before I knew it I came to the happily ever after. Even the HEA was different and exciting. I don’t know how Ms. Sax does it but she has written some awesome books that define the word entertainment. The Godrabbit rocks!
