Publisher's Summary

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 harbouring 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.

Worth Every Fantastic Star!!!

This is another one of my favorite PNR series when I'm looking for good humor and silliness. Yes, it's a bit raunchy and dysfunctional, but it's still a extremely fun read. This book is about Mitch (lion shifter) and Sissy Mae (wolf shifter) - both whom you meet in earlier books. Mitch is an undercover detective about to testify against a big mafia-type badboy. He discovers that an assasin has been hired to take him out. Sissy Mae is a good friend that helps him hide out for awhile. But one thing leads to another and they begin to realize that their feelings for one another run deeper than friendship. I also love the crazy dynamics of both the pack & pride families. The supporting characters are really the best part of the book . . . although the hot sex scenes are quite delicious as well. An fabulous book, I really did love the relationship between Mitch and Sissay. You wont regret reading this series. Mitch is my Fav in the Pride series with his sexiness!!! I wasn't over the top with the first book but it's pertinent to the character& world building to this series. I am soooooo glad I continued on with each book that Audible releases. These books have potential to make you snort, lol, grin goofy, smile, and possibly blush while fanning yourself from Mitch's extreme hotness:)

Extremely Good! Love these Mane Books...

I really like these Mane books... these shifters are just too darn funny. I really like the TN Smith-town shifter clan... since I am originally from TN... I can seriously relate to some of the things Sissy Mae does. It is just hilarious. The smexing is extremely hot in these book. A great credit spent!

Narration was great. Kane does a great job with all the male voice and continues the same voices from all the other books as well, so I recognized other characters just from the voices used... Awesomeness!!

WANTED IT TO BE GOOD BUT IT JUST---WASN'T

The numerous positive reviews and the preview of the Mane Attraction was the number one reason I started this series--I really enjoyed books one and two and couldn't wait to start this one, but, it's left me with something to be desired. I can't put my finger on it, but it just wasn't as interesting as the previous books. There was a good amount of humor and some steamy sex, which I like, but, the plot and the interactions and dialogue of the characters was bordering on slap-stick and seemed like the author's thoughts were scattered while she wrote this one. The saving grace for some books is the narration, but, I haven't liked the female character's voices from the onset, and in particular Sissy Mae the main character in this one--Ugh! Mitch, on the other hand I was totally into. If the story had been completely from his perspective it would've been far more enjoyable for sure.

I used a credit on this and regret that decision, however, in general it's a good series and I'll purchase the other books for those times when I just need a filler and my expectations are low.

Southern love story must read!

Where does The Mane Attraction rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It ranks way up at the top. I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks and this book is a wonderful third book in the series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mane Attraction?

I just love the way Sissy and Mitch just seem to click. I particularly like the part where the alligator and Mitch were wrestling! Sissy is so hilarious! And Mitch is cute with his demanding king of the jungle lion attitude.

Have you listened to any of Charlotte Kane’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I listened to books 1 and 2 so far in this series and just love the way that Charlotte Kane performs/reads the books. Very talented!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Shifters - Wolf and Lion fall in love!

tickled my funny bone

I loved this book. Laughed most of the way through it. Shelly Laurenston's books always entertain me greatly and this one was no exception. It usually startles people when I start laughing out loud while listening, but I just can't help it. I hope to eventually have all her books on audio.

Very Funny Book

I have to say, I truly enjoyed this book. I laughed through the whole book. My husband kept asking me what I was laughing about. I enjoyed this book a lot more then the second one. The story was interesting also, of course I new the ending already, but just listening to then joke around was worth the book. I hope the rest of the books are as good, because I just downloaded the rest of the series. Worth a credit: "definitely"

Yay!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Thank you to whoever slowed down the timing on the narration ... soooo much better than the performance in The Mane Event and The Beast in Him. Overall, the performance was just better .. yay! I can't wait for the next book to show up.

Good Humor Abounds

Always enjoy this shifter series. A wedding is the new beginning igniting something more than friendship between wolf shifter (Sissy) and lion shifter (Mitch).
Their lively banter and complicated family
relationships keep the action moving and
the sex hot!
