Sidney has quietly loved twin brothers Brook and Colby for years, watching and pining as they came to his house for the summer every year. Painfully aware that they have each other, have no reason to notice the unremarkable duck they grew up babysitting.
Then the twins and their mother are attacked days before an important meeting that will change the shifter world forever. When the twins come to stay with Sidney's family until the attackers are caught, Sidney learns that all things have their season, and even violent protests will not keep two rabbits from the man for whom they've been patiently waiting…
Warning: Story contains incest.
It just occurred to me that this smuffy book may be the perfect Easter read. We've got ducks, bunnies and the always seasonal twincest menage. Throw in some chocolate eggs and you've got a great holiday treat. [ (hide spoiler)]
Maybe if I'd read it with chocolate I would've enjoyed it more. It's fluffy and smutty, but I was constantly distracted by the thought that I'd read it before. I must've been experiencing a severe lack of sugar and caffeine, because it took me 75% of the book to realize that the plot is like a more fleshed-out version of Derr's Midsummer Baker.
Both stories feature young men who've had a long-term crush on older twins who are viewed as the town's troublemakers. The young man's crush originated when he accidentally witnessed the twins going to town on each other. Some kind of misunderstanding occurs (before the start of the story) and the young man is under the impression that the twins aren't interested or don't care about him, when, of course, they do. They are really, really interested.
But, like I said, this is a more fleshed-out version of that plot. In Rabbit Season, the young man, Sidney, isn't an orphaned baker boy, but the heir apparent of a group of duck shifters who are working with other shifters to reveal themselves to the world. Unlike the twins in Midsummer Baker, Colby and Brook are looked down upon because they're rabbit shifters and everyone knows rabbits will fuck anything. Especially each other. (Which they do. As often as possible.)
Many of the other shifters are worried that this will reflect poorly on them if and when the humans find out. Especially if the humans discover that the one of their future leaders is in a twincest menage relationship. Oh, the drama. I felt like telling these people that it's okay, you're in Megan Derr's world and if you refrain from acting like a giant bag of violent dicks, it'll all work out.
But do they refrain? No, of course not, but it nonetheless works out for our boys. It works out quite well for the readers as well as the book ends with a giant twins on dude, man on man on man lurve scene.
