    Bad Choices, Bad Choice, So Where’s the Right Choice?

    This is the first book of Jessica Lee that I’ve read. It was beyond my ‘normal’, ‘vanilla’ romance realm, way beyond. So I really wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into.  I’m glad I chose to read her book, In the Pride’s Best Interest.  
    I started the book right after lunch on a dreary spring day, perfect for putting your feet up and relaxing with a good book. Before I knew what hit me, I was transported to the Smokey Mountains engaged in a story that provided action, adventure, mystery, revenge, and romance. What more could a girl want?
    It was a wonderful afternoon learning about the world of shifters and their interactions with ordinary humans, the blooming of a new romance, and the revenge of a lost mate. The characters captured your heart as their reality tested their relationship and loyalties to the pack and friends. 
    In the Pride’s Best Interest is definitely an adult book with plenty of sizzle, as the main characters explore their budding relationship.

    The second novel in the paranormal m/m erotic romance series Ariel Estates is an intriguing hot and steamy read.
    Lion shifter and Secretary of Ariel Estates, Eli Novak is torn and confused, he’s always been straight until a strawberry blond human male stumbles onto their land and has him questioning everything he thought he knew about himself.  Lost in the Smokey Mountains, Shayne Matthews sees a light in the distance that he thinks might lead to rescue but instead he ends up in a world he never knew existed.  Fear turns to lust and an adventure that puts him in the middle of a battle for dominance and power.  Forced into a triangle of options, Eli must choose between his best friend, the human who’s claimed his heart and the pride’s best interest.
    This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps the reader on their toes with suspense and romance. The author brings the story and the characters to life with vivid imagery that makes the reader feel as if they are part of the story. The strong compelling characters grab the reader’s attention and doesn’t let go, ensuring that the reader wants to know more.
    The forbidden attraction between Eli and Shayne explodes with passion and the blazing hot sex scenes leave the reader scorched.  Relationships between shifters and humans being forbidden adds spice to their rocky relationship keeping the reader engrossed in the outcome.  
    The tension building suspense created by a greedy and revenge seeking shifters adds lots of depth and action to this already entertaining story.  I love the shifters of Ariel Estates and I can’t wait to about of them.

    Pleasantly surprised. I'm a long time fan of paranormal, but relatively new to the LGBT paranormal genre. I went into the book with a open mind and I'm glad I did.

    This is the second book in the Ariel Estates series, but it could stand on its own. The main characters are lion shifter, Eli Novack, and human, Shayne Matthews. The book is ultimately a story that explores two lonely people who just happen to be men and meet and feel a deep connection. Both characters had lost their mothers and feel the loss which further connects them. The issues keeping them apart are the fact that Shayne is human and to a smaller extent, the fact Eli had never been with a male before. The jump Jessica Lee creates of formerly hetero Eli to his sexual attraction to Shayne is believable and largely undramatic *much appreciated*. The author also creates very likable, believable, and sympathetic characters even in the "villains". I was also happy to see that the author did not cop out and make Shayne the lisping caricature that cinema often does with same sex portrayals.
