When her two best friends forget her birthday, crushing her, Jess is amazed when one of the infamous Pride brothers shows up, apparently wanting nothing more than to sweep her off her feet. Jezebel’s life will never be the same, and though she is sure the relationship is only temporary, Jezebel embraces the attention Brandon showers on her.
Brandon has found his mate. He is overjoyed, his lion content, but then he suddenly finds all is not easy in love, at least not when you are a lion shifter with a human mate totally unaware of the paranormal world. Now, Brandon must not only reveal the existence of shifters to his mate, but also tell her of the very real threat they fight against.
Will Jezebel be able to accept everything that comes with being a shifter’s mate? Or will the truth be too much, sending her running back to the familiar, safe harbor of the human world?
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas except when your the mate of a Pride shifter.
What better setting for a sexy shifter romance than the city of sin itself. Apart from the romance I find the creatures that shifters fight such as goblins and leprachauns an exciting addition to this fun series. The author has their own spin on these creatures and even the shifters themselves that make them unique. While I love the bit of action we get to see, the thing that really makes these books shine is the amount of drama and sexy shifters that get packed into the pages.
The heroine Jezebel is a very relatable character. She is not perfect by any means, but rather than dwell on this fact she does her best to live life to the fullest. She also doesn't let the ignorance of others get her down. I really admire her kindness and courage so it is easy to see how Brandon could so easily fall for her. The best part was getting to see the growth in Jezebel throughout the book. At first she was a bit insecure and although she didn't take crap from anyone else she still didn't believe she would ever deserve someone like Brandon. By the end she knew that she deserved all that and more just like everyone else and let those who said otherwise know it. I couldn't have been more proud.
Brandon is a sweet and patient man who knew what he wanted and went after it. I loved how caring he was and that he always let Jezebel know how beautiful she was and never let her get down on herself. He cherished and protected her, what more could a woman want. He wasn't perfect by any means, but a bit of growly possessiveness from your very on alpha isn't so bad.
The heat rating on this book is through the roof and if a smokin hot romance is what your after look no further than "Jezebel's Lion".
