The Mane Attraction (Pride Series # 3)

By Shelly Laurenston

RBTS The Mane Attraction


Even the king of the beasts can find himself unexpectedly tamed by the right woman. . .

Weddings have the strangest effect on people. Exhibit 1: Sissy Mae waking up in Mitch Shaw’s bed the morning after her brother Bobby Ray’s nuptials. Exhibit 2: the gunmen trying to kill Mitch. Exhibit 3: Sissy Mae escorting a bleeding yet sexy lion shifter to her Tennessee Pack’s turf for safe keeping. It doesn’t help that Mitch’s appraising gaze makes her feel like the most desirable creature on earth. . .

Mitch is an undercover cop about to testify against some dangerous ex-associates. Even more worrisome, he’s harboring hot, X-rated fantasies about one fast-talking little canine–and he has to deal with every male in Sissy Mae’s Pack sniffing around her in a way that makes his hackles rise. Mitch has his pride, and he intends to show Sissy Mae that when a lion sets out to make you his mate, the only thing to do is purr, roll over, and enjoy one hell of a ride. . .


THE MANE ATTRACTION starts where book 2 left off, with Smitty and Jessie Ann’s wedding.  Sissy (wolf shifter and Smitty’s sister) and her good buddy Mitch (lion shifter and Brendon Shaw’s brother) are trying to have fun, despite Sissy trying to avoid her bitch of a mother, and Mitch being too busy thinking about the bounty on his head.

After an almost successful attempt on Mitch’s life has been made, Sissy decides to take him to where she thinks he’ll be most safe.  Where does she take him?  Back to a place she herself hates visiting, her childhood home in Smithtown.  Once there Sissy has to face her older brother (who has plans to be the next alpha) without the protection of her pack or her father.  She knows it’s going to be bad for her, but it’s the only place she feels Mitch will be safe.

Throw in a shifter only football game, a shifter only NASCAR type race, and a crazy car scene with Sissy and Ronnie Lee, and you’ve got yourself an action packed romance with some great sex.  This book has everything really.

Two people more alike I don’t think you’ll ever meet.  Both Mitch and Sissy are huge shit stirrers.  They live for starting shit and watching the aftermath.  But together, their attraction is hot, sweet and funny all rolled into one.

Mitch: “Can I ask you a strange question?”
Sissy:  “No, I won’t have sex with you in my childhood bed.”
Mitch:  “That’s not a problem.  I’m more a take you up against the wall kind of guy anyway.”


I have read all 9 books in this series, and from memory this is by far the funniest.  All the previous books were funny, but I feel that from here the ‘funny’ reaches a new level and stays there.
