The Mane Attraction by Shelly Laurenston

Five Stars
Book 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 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...

My goodness, where to start? This book had me LMAO! This is book three in her The Pride Series. Shelly Laurenston knows how to tell a story. You've got fast talking hillbillies, shifters of all kinds, alpha males and females, family squabbles, super hot sex, and dialogue that will keep you laughing for days.
We met Mitch and Sissy Mae in The Mane Event. Mitch, a lion shifter, is Brendon's younger brother who everyone thought was a total screw up and a disgrace to their Pride. Turns out he's an undercover cop with a million dollar bounty on his head. Sissy Mae, a wolf shifter, is Smitty's shit starting baby sister with her own Pack. Sissy Mae is a handful for anyone who knows her because she loves to start shit whether you're ready to fight or not. They were suppose to be best friends but as soon as Sissy Mae takes him home to Smithtown, Tennessee, everything changes.
I loved this story and couldn't put it down until I finished. I'm still trying to figure out what in the world "hoss" means. SL took her readers straight to the country where everybody knows your name, everybody knows your business, everybody is related, and everybody wants to kill you.
Mitch was his old lovable self, flirting his way through life to get what he wanted. His tune abruptly changes when he realizes that every male in Smithtown and surrounding area wants a chance with the legendary Sissy Mae Smith. He wants to be her one and only, but all Sissy Mae wants to do is keep their relationship with no strings attached. That's kinda hard to do when all they think about is each other.
You will have absolute fun reading this story and any other book she has written. She also writes under the name G A Aikens.
