I always love a story by Shelly Laurenston, and The Mane Event was definitely one of them. This book actually has two stories in it, and are both doubly hilarious. She knows how to create characters and story lines that work well in creating maximum laughs. The first story centers on Desiree “Dez” MacDermot who is a NYPD cop and Mace Llewellyn a shifter who turns into a lion. Dez is a strong female character and is a great mate for the king of beasts. Mace remembers Dez from school and believes she is the one for him. Which is great now that his family wants him to take on more responsibilities in the pride. When Mace and Dez get together, you better have a cold shower nearby for you will definitely need it. Hot, hot, hot……..Also for the laugh factor make sure you don’t drink and read, because you will definitely be spraying the furniture and anyone in the immediate area. I know I did.
Now for the next story, we have Brendon Shaw and Ronnie Lee Reed. Ronnie is a shape shifting wolf and she takes Brendon Shaw to her Aunts to let Brendon heal after he was beaten by a group of shape shifting wolves. When the fever comes upon Brendon , Ronnie has to do everything within her power to keep him in the house. When she goes back upstairs to check on him he is gone. She rushes outside and there he is in all his lion glory, dancing? Yep, he is dancing the mambo, swaying back and forth. When I read the dancing scene I died laughing. When Brendon Shaw wakes up the next day he wants to find the woman who he was kissing last night and make her his. I loved both of these stories, because the women in them gave the men a run for their money. They just didn’t let them catch them, they had to work for it. I give The Mane Event 5/5 stars for all the belly laughs. I recommend this book for everyone.
