My first time reading Shelly Laurenston. I found The Mane Event to be fun reading. I didn't realize it was two books in one so that was a nice surprise.
Book one is about Mac and Dez.
NYPD cop Desiree "Dez" MacDermot knows she's changed a lot since she palled around with her childhood buddy, Mace. But it's fair to say that Mace has changed even more. It isn't just those too-sexy gold eyes, or the six-four, built-like-a-Navy Seal body. It's something in the way he sniffs her neck and purrs, making her entire body tingle...
The second Brandon and Ronnie.
Meanwhile, for Tennessean Ronnie Lee Reed, 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 shifter men like Brendon Shaw. But she needn't worry, because now that Brendon's set his sights on her, the predator in him is ready to pounce and never let go..
Both stories are nice little reads. Ones I tend to call "filler reads". You know a book to settle in while waiting on a new release. You like it but can leave it and come back.
Will be visiting this world of shifters again!
