The Mane Attraction- Shelly Laurenston (book 3)

Weddings have the strangest effect on people. How else to explain the fact that Sissy Mae Smith woke up in Mitch Shaw's bed the morning after her brother Bobby Ray tied the knot? Or that gunmen are trying to kill Mitch, and Sissy Mae now has to escort a bleeding, stubborn, yet still incredibly sexy lion shifter to her Tennessee Pack's turf to keep him safe? It doesn't help that Mitch's appraising gaze makes her feel like the most desirable creature on earth, or that the ultimate stray cat is suddenly acting all kinds of possessive...
Mitch is an undercover cop who's about to testify against some dangerous ex-associates. Even more worrisome, he's harboring hot, X-rated fantasies about the 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...
Oh Mitch just cracks me up, he is so goofy and sexy at the same time. Now Sissy Mae has not been my favorite female character in the books but she really is funny. You know from the end of the last book that these two are going to get together but how they get there is a trip. When Mitch is shot at the wedding, Sissy Mae takes him back to her hometown in Tennessee, so he can heal and to hide him from the people who are trying to kill him for money. With her parents out of town, Sissy comes back to the town that she left and thought she would never be back too and to an Alpha brother who thinks she is a whore. Ex-boyfriends come out of the woodwork, she-wolves wanting a piece of her and just all around crazy people start to show up. I enjoyed the book and the sex is pretty hot but it left a few things out for me, I am hoping the next book clears up a few things for me.
My Rating: 4
One thing I was not happy with was the cover, Mitch is tall, muscular and has long tawny blond hair- like a lions mane..not short brown hair!!
