Christmas Pride

How come all the good-looking ones are insane?
That's what runs through NYPD cop Desiree "Dez" MacDermot's mind the minute she hooks up again with her childhood buddy, Mace Llewellyn. It isn't just the way he stares at her with those too-sexy gold eyes―as if he could devour her on the spot. Or the six-four, built-like-a-Navy Seal bod-o-death. It isn't even that he sniffs her neck and purrs, making her entire body tingle. It's more about that disconcerting, shifting-from-man-to-lion thing that unhinges her...and makes her want more.

Mace likes making Dez crazy. In fact, he likes her any way he can get her―in bed, on the desk, here, now, again. Together, they'd always been trouble, but Dez has no idea just how good trouble can feel...

Shaw's Tail

Brendon Shaw, hotel owner and lion shifter, has seen better days. He's been beaten, had a gun to the back of his head, and had to be rescued by a Pack of shape-shifting wolves. He didn't think he'd survive the night, much less find the woman of his dreams. And he never thought the woman of his dreams would have a Tennessee accent and wear cowboy boots. Once he sets his sights on her, the predator in him is ready to pounce and never let go.

Ronnie Lee Reed is ready to change her life, and New York City is the place where any girl―even one who runs with a Pack―can redefine herself. First order of business: find a mate, settle down, and stop using men for sex. Even big, gorgeous, lion-shifting, oh-my-what-big-um-paws-you-have men. Then again...

JUST A NOTE: Read It File It is for books that I have read that I need to keep track of. The reviews will be super short (think tweet longer length) but will serve the purpose of getting the books into UBB for tracking purposes 🙂

First Thoughts: The Mane Event by Shelly Laurenston was a freaking hot and fun time!

Read It File It: Oh my! I blushed a lot while listening then reading The Mane Event. I should have known that I would have lived in fear that the headphones would fall out while listening. I had to switch to reading because it was just to steamy for my ears. I loved all the characters (in both stories) and felt like fist pumping when the couples got together! Just downright shifter fun!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by: Charlotte Kane /Length: 12 hrs and 13 mins

I don’t do well with steamy stuff on audio so this was not for me. I thought Charlotte did a pretty good job with the women’s voices though. The men were a little too “soft” for me but that might have been because of the smexy. I just prefer men to do the smexy scenes.

Final Thought: I now know why people love these stories 🙂
