Finally a woman who is just as unsure of where to go next as the rest of the population of her age – at 32, Shelby is a woman to be reckoned with. She is smart, emotional, unsure and most of all, she’s the woman who wants to find her other half – her soul mate. It’s almost difficult to know where the character begins and the author ends as Shelby discovers her passion, and develops it further, for poetry, taking the risk that so many are afraid to take to put herself out there and let the world and the crowd critique her. In Shelby, I was able to feel newly published Brooke Lee’s talent for poetry and her flair for taking a simple sentence and making it a piece of art. As beautiful as it is, it’s impossible to ignore the other half that is incredibly sensual and erotic – in trying to find her place in the world, Shelby turns to her best friend of more than 20 years, whom she’s felt physically attracted to for some time, Roni and the chemistry left me breathless more than once. The relationship between the two women is deep, intense and decadent, and until Shelby meets Riley at the Shopping Mall and sparks fly, she believed it was the only thing her body and mind needed. With Riley, this couple explores the nuances of male/female relationships and what it means to discover the joys of trying new things such as ménages, dominance and so much more. Truly an energizing read and one I couldn’t put down, Brooke Lee’s first novel, I Am Shelby James wa sand is one ‘diamond in the rough’ that makes your heart beat a mile a minute as you fall in love with love and follow the journey to the sexual and sensual discoveries that pushes Shelby towards her ultimate goal. Brooke Lee has captivated me and shown me what poetry, beauty and sensuality (and who can deny the hotness of the steaming bedroom scenes) can become – I can’t wait for her next release as I’m hooked and have added her to my ever growing list of ‘to be watched’.
