First of all, this is a HUGE post and I know there's a LOT to take in so please, take your time and digest everything that Eve and I have prepped for you. With that, I'll make this review as brief as I can so you can move on to more fun stuff :P.
Currently there are 5 novellas in Eve Langlais' FUC (Furry United Coalition) series and this bundle are novellas 1-3. Short summary, it's light, fluffy and funny. I enjoyed the double entendre, the sexy times and the suspense-adventure incorporated into the series. FUC is the shifter police and the main plot of the series is there's someone kidnapping shifters for experimental purposes. So the first three novellas are interconnected in the sense that the agents are trying to capture the villain while finding their mates along the way.
Bunny and the Bear is the fluffiest and funnest of the three and its a sexed up, PNR version of Goldilocks and the
Three One Bear. The heroine, Miranda, is a shifter bunny, she's sexy, bubbly and horny while the bear, Chase, is stern, grumpy but equally horny. Chase became the villain's target and Miranda saved him from its clutches and as expected all that adrenalin turned into a powerful aphrodisiac and well... Miranda is a bunny for a reason. This is a light story with lots of sexy time, I will never look at honey the same way again.
Swan and the Bear is my favorite of the trilogy, it was still light but slightly more emotional because the MC's are in a forbidden relationship, it's like Romeo & Juliet meets Swan Lake. The swan, Jessie, is actually a Princess and her father doesn't want her to cross breed with the bear, Mason, who is also Chase's brother. On top of trying to nab the mastermind behind the kidnappings, the main focus of this novella is the romance between Jessie and Mason. It's still fun and sexy but it has drama and more romantic than the previous one.
Croc and the Fox is my least favorite. The fox, Renee/Project, was the villain's prime subject and she's been his guinea pig for 14 years. Renee/Project has no recollection of her life before the lab, has poor social skills and very ignorant about a lot of things. This handicap made the croc, Viktor, very sympathetic and protective of Renee's plight, taking on the guardian role. This is my least favorite because of the school girl/virginal play. It became too much that it reminded me of hentai (anime porn) and Renee/Project's "innocence" just felt fake and annoying to me.
What I love most about FUC is the villain! I love that ELanglais' used his POV to hold the story together and he's actually closer than these FUC agents think he is! He's so cunning, slick and just evil I'm dying to know who the fuc this person is?! Overall, I enjoyed the tone of FUC, these three novellas were quick reads, it has good plots and lots of steam. Obviously these are insta-love kind of stories but I really didn't mind the trope, there's so much going on with the novellas that I got distracted from this pet peeve. Anyway, if you're looking for an in-between read, try FUC, it's very satisfying.
Lucifer: Welcome future denizens of Hell. Once again, I’ve commandeered a blog—aka sent the owner on a boat tour with Charon where she hopefully won’t get eaten by any Styx sea monsters—so that I might regale you with stories of my greatness.
Ysabel: (mutters) Great according to who?
Lucifer: (rotates his head, 180 degrees) I heard that.
Ysabel: (smirks) Good to know. A guy your age is prone to problems. First it’s the eyes, then the ears, then… (She drops her gaze to a spot below his belt)
Smoke begins to sift from Lucifer’s ears.
Remy: As if our mighty and wondrous lord would ever have that kind of problem.
Ysabel: (mutters) Suck up.
Remy: Ass kissing is a fine art, my witch. One you should know I excel at, or do you require another demonstration?
Lucifer: (perks up) I wouldn’t mind watching.
Ysabel: Dream on, demon.
Lucifer: You and Gaia are always ruining my fun.
Distant female voice: I heard that.
Lucifer: (scowls) Anyhow, back to the subject at hand, me and the awesome job I’m doing pairing up the vilest, most psychotic, deranged and irredeemable of my demons on staff.
Remy: Thank you, boss. I knew you appreciated me and all my hard, ass kicking work.
Lucifer: Not you. I mean the females. They’re bitchy. Violent. Outspoken. And yet I have managed the impossible. I’ve found them males who have no only managed to bed them, but remain alive after the fact. I think that makes me the king of not just Hell but matchmaking.
Distant female voice: I thought you were content with king of my bedroom.
Lucifer: I would be if you’d let me brag about how wondrous I am between your thighs and how I make you—
From out of thin air a woman arrives and slaps a hand over his mouth.
Gaia: That’s quite enough. You know how I feel about letting the world know about our lovemaking.
Lucifer: Argh, woman. What have I told you about using the L word in public?
Gaia: The same thing I’ve told you about discussing our intimate affairs.
They glare at each other. Then, come together in a clash of lips. The ground trembles and they disappear from sight with Lucifer pausing long enough to shout
Lucifer: You can read all about my awesome match making skills as told by the author whose soul I own, Eve Langlais. She will dazzle you with my brilliance in her Welcome to Hell series. Until we meet on the banks of the Styxx, this is Lucifer signing off that I might ravish my delectable goddess. I am also returning your blog to its rightful, properly educated and somewhat traumatized owner. Happy sinning…

Hello, my name is Eve. I’m a stay at home mom who writes really raunchy stuff–usually with werewolves lol. I am a bestselling Amazon author, ranking often in their top 100 romance authors. But I’m not just popular with Kindle readers. I was one of the top ten selling authors on AllRomance for 2013 and have had numerous of my books hit the top 100 books on Barnes & Nobles as well.
I’m writing romance, my way. Be warned, I do have a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. I like strong alpha males, naked chests and werewolves. Lots of werewolves. In fact, you’ll notice most of my multi partner stories revolve around great, big, overprotective Lycans who just want to please their woman. I am also extremely partial to aliens, you know the kind who abduct their woman and then drive them insane…with pleasure of course.
I love to write, and while I don’t always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a happily ever after.
