Book Review 13: The Mane Attraction by Shelly Laurenston aka G.A.Aiken

The Mane Attraction (Pride #3) by Shelly Laurenston

German Version
Things to know:
  • I read the translated German version (original in English)
  • It was published October 2008 (German version in November 2011)
  • It has 320 pages (German 416)
  • It is set in New York City and Smithtown (Tennessee (I'd guess early 2000s), shortly after book 2
  • I started: 23rd February 2015 and ended it: 8th March
  • Book 3 of "Pride" Series

After Smitty's and Jessie Ann's wedding, Sissy Mae wakes up in Mitch's bed (nope nothing happend). They joke around and Mitch is shot and badly injured. Sissy takes him with her to Smithtown, to keep him save, but her eldest brother doesn't like that a lot. She takes care of Mitch, but soon finds out, he eats more food than what should actually fit in. To make everything even more complicated, they start having sex, without any feelings of course. 
Well, what do you think will happen? I mean, not too difficult to guess if you've read the previous books in this series right?

I didn't really like it this book. It reminded me WAY too much of Shaw and Ronnie... The plot is too similar... 
I am hoping this will still change in the series. I love G.A. Aiken's Dragon Kin Series so much...
Not much more to say, I don't want to repeat what I said in my previous book reviews...


Patong, Phuket, Thailand 5th-20th March

So, I was away from 5th to 20th March. I actually was in Thailand from 6th to 19th (flights take a while).
I wanted to update regularly, but a lot came in between. Worst being that I was ill for way too long, Lily wasn't feeling well on 2 days either, thus I couldn't do as much as I wanted... 

I won't tell you much about the flight, after what just happened, just shortly: I flew with Lufthansa, the flight was comfortable, and I'd fly with it again. 

I arrived in Patong Beach on Phuket island around 4pm. I stayed at Lily's place, who is there for a 6 month internship.
She gave me my belated Christmas presents, I love everything so much <3

We also had some great food there, though I have to said I had some trouble finding (a) vegetarian food, (b) nut-free food, but the combination of both, really was... a mission xD

I also went to some islands (including Raya):


There were also loads of Japanese goods to buy, and I did spend a lot of money on those >.<
