Her Mane Attraction by Nicole Garcia

Posted January 3, 2018 by Marsha in Kindle Worlds, Shifter / 0 Comments

Exiled from his native homeland in Africa, Adonis becomes separated from his pride and is forced to make a home in the Adirondacks. The need to claim a mate is strong, but how will he ever find her when no one will give him a chance because of his appearance? Not only did being a white lion make him an outcast among his own kind, he’s isolated and constantly rejected in his human form as well. 

Eira is bored with her run of the mill, mundane life. She loves her job as a pilot and enjoys meeting new people, but something is missing. There’s no excitement, no romance, no special someone to fill the empty space in her heart. Being human, it only makes sense that she date her own kind, which wouldn’t be so bad if she didn’t find every man she meets a total bore and completely ordinary. 

When a skeptical Adonis and an adventurous Eira find themselves hooked up on a not so typical first date arranged by Gerri from the Paranormal Dating Agency, sparks aren’t the only things flying.

 Their good time quickly becomes a race for their lives as they try to escape the wilderness holding them captive. As if the situation couldn’t get any worse, Adonis has to fight off his rival to keep the one woman who holds the key to his heart.

Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

My Rating:  3 stars

Her Mane Attraction is a fast paced, steamy story with a definite dangerous edge to it.  While I enjoyed this story in general, there are enough bits that have my nitpicking brain going into overdrive.  These things should not have taken me away from and out of the story as often as they did… but that was my reaction.  I spent more time stopping reading and thinking, “What the heck?” than I did wrapped up in Adonis and Eira’s story.

A book’s cover is my first visual introduction to that world.  Eira is a blonde.  Adonis is an albino.  Yet the cover has a white-blonde and a light brown haired male.  As a lover of all things shifter my knowledge of a mate’s scent is compelling, drawing, inescapable… not something that would make a male act as though his mate stank to high heaven, and let her and everyone around him think the same.  I also understand that Adonis didn’t hate the scent, he was overpowered by it, not certain what to do with this knowledge that his mate was right in front of him.  I get that – but the impression I was left with was quite simply that this “hero” is an absolute jerk and at that point of the story if I  were Eira I’d be running for the hills.  And why in the shifter’s world would you refer to a shifted wolf shifter as a K-9.  I just…

So to say I”m torn on Her Mane Attraction is an understatement.  I’m not even certain at this point that I”m going to post this on Goodreads or Amazon.  As this review is turning into a rant instead of a review… but acknowledging that fact does not change my reaction to a story that could have been really good… except for those nitpicking details.

I own a Kindle edition of this story.
