Mace just got out of the Navy after fourteen years of service. Now that he's back home he only has one goal in mind, to find Dez. Dez left him when they were in high school and he never got over it. He want's to go confront her but first he has to deal with a death in is Pride, which means going back home. He never expected to walk into his sisters office and see the woman from his fantasies. The second he see's, the now all grown up, Dez his anger deflates and lust rushes in. She's not the same ...more

This was a pretty good story. I've read some stories by Shelly Laurenston but never tried this series before. I like it so far.

Dez grew up in the Bronx and because a police detective. She’s tough and doesn’t take any crap and loves her job. Unfortunately she has issues with men not being able to accept her or her job. She tends to avoid dating and when she meets back up with Mace again (after not seeing each other since they were 14 years old) she tries to keep her distance from him, thin

Now, I know this is a sex book and this will come out as a shock, but there was just so much sex. I mean, I lost the plot because there was so much sex. How does Mace convince Dez to be with him? Sex. How does he convince her to do things? Sex. It proved to be very effective. Anyway, if you ever just want a book that is just sex, then I highly recommend this book to you. However, if you want a nice blend of sex and plot, I wouldn't really recommend this book. I felt like Laurenston was trying to ...more

This is just The Mane Event redone.


Wow. I was recommended this series by many people but really had no idea what it was about until I read it. I was surprised, this was almost Lora Leigh league erotic romance. The couples in both stories were well written and likable. The men are hot and the women are independent without being too butch. My only issue stems from a common romance related plot line. Why are all women in these books afraid of love? I really don't understand it, honestly. I wish it

Loved this book. Within a couple of pages u fall deeply in love with Mace's cocky, arrogant, romantic way about him. Dez is hilarious not giving in to Maces demands to be together. Really love the strong alpha females that are in Laurenston books. Struggle to like the whole breeding contract n lion lifestyle with no commitment but what I really like is the character not following the norm and mating outside their wealth and specie for love.
Loved how crazy the females seem to be and getting the

My first complaint about the audiobook was that the narrator didn't have the main character Dez, speak with a Brooklyn accent even though she was supposed to have a thick Brooklyn accent.

Well, that quickly changed, and was in fact part of the story. So it worked.

All in all, I liked this story.

Though, the baddie got confusing because (view spoiler).

But all in all, I did like it. I liked Mace a lot.

I look forward to reading/listening to

Christmas Pride


Reread: Oh, I have no idea how many times I have reread this. I love it. It is always a bit dirtier than I remember and funnier.

I love this lion shifter who know what he wants and goes after it. I love Dez. She is just awesome.

That is all.

Shaw's Tail A no holds bar sexy romp as a lion shifter goes after a wolf shifter female with is whole heart. The role playing sexy times are off the hook and these characters are so much fun.

Funny, but this was also in the book The Mane Event. It's about Dez (human & NYPD) and Mace (Lion) and meeting during her investigation into Mace's sister, then Christmas and the mess their families are when they get together. It's a abbreviated version, but is part of the other book, so you'd be better off reading the full version.

I love his attitude towards her and how he uses all his manly goodies to his advantage. Haha.
Also love her take-no-sh*t -from-no-one personality and her ability to be badass, even if she is human.

A part of Main Event or a re do of main event depends on how you see it.

I would read the Main event book as its more complete for me.
