    About "Jove Belle"

      • Jove Belle

        Jove Belle was born and raised against a backdrop of orchards and potato fields The youngest of four children, she was raised in a conservative, Christian home and began asking why at a very young age, much to the consternation of her mother and grandmother At the customary age of eighteen, she fled southern Idaho in pursuit of broader minds and fewer traffic jams involving the local livestock The road didn t end in Portland, Oregon, but there were many confusing freeway interchanges that a girl from the sticks was ill prepared to deal with As a result, she has lived in the Portland metro area for over fifteen years and still can t figure out how she manages to spend so much time in traffic when there s not a stray sheep or cow in sight.She lives with her partner of twelve years Between them they share three children, two dogs, two cats, two mortgage payments, one sedan, and one requisite dyke pickup truck One day she hopes to live in a house that doesn t generate a never ending honey do list.Incidentally, she never stopped asking why, but did expand her arsenal of questions to include who, what, when, where and, most important of all, how In those questions, a story is born.

    1. A yummmmmmy appetizer! Let me just go right out and say it: The sex is amazing. So much so that I needed some effort to recall what the rest of the book was about (and I'm usually pretty good with these things, lol). Let's see. There was a wedding. A broken mailbox. And okay, I'm gonna cheat and go read the blurb, lol. Anyway, so our ladies meet at a wedding. One is the sister of the groom and the other is the ex of the bride. It was insta-lust. But oh so inappropriater the occasion, at least. ; [...]


    2. Cake is a sexy, smart read. The cover art drew my interest as did the book blurb and the author delivers with a well-paced, fully developed story considering its novella length.The chemistry between Kelly and Elana makes the book sizzle. Elana has every reason to be miserable at the big event but the support shown by Kelly and their incredible connection from the moment they meet makes the wedding a memorable one. Their “dance” is addictive.Comic relief comes courtesy of Kelly's brother Davi [...]


    3. I loved it. It's a perfectly contained novella that's just so, so good. While I could have happily read a full length novel about these characters, I'm glad things ended with a happy-for-now ending, because anything else would have been inappropriate. Oh and, of course, it's hot as hell. Full review here: thelesbianreview/cake-


    4. Detailed score: 3.5*grumbley grumble grumble* OK so this is going to be one of those 'series' where each novella, rather than being completely stand alone in and of itself, is going to be more like episodes in a TV series - the protagonists remain the same across multiple 'episodes' (aka novella-length books) and, while you get some action in the 'episode' itself, multiple threads are left hanging between episodes as a wider story arc that carries across the season (or, in some instances, multip [...]


    5. In this charming short story, Jove Belle succesfully wrapped up:- erotic, classy, hot scenes- feelings and romance- indipendence and loyalty themes- the fading of a love and the blossoming of a new oneVery nice!


    6. The romance was going well, but the ending is kinda abrupted. I thought it is gonna be a first installment, and there will be the second installment that waited to be released. However, for the next book of Bitterroot Saga, it seemed like the story will not concentrate on the main couple in "Cake". The sex scene is hot, I'll give the author that. But this whole read seemed like a casual reading that meant for passing time.



    7. Sweet!Kelly is a beautiful baker. One day her brother, David, surprises her with the news he is getting married and asks her to do the cake. She is not happy about the wedding since she has never heard of this woman before but agrees to make the cake. Elana is a sexy life coach whose ex, Bree, left her to marry a man. For some reason she has been sent an invitation to the wedding and she is unable to stay away. Once there she locks onto Kelly. She confesses her reason for being there and while i [...]


    8. Ms Belle sent me a proof of the book. I gotta say, I really enjoyed it. From Kelly's less than perfect relationship with her brother and parents to her intense attraction to Elana, even though it's a "bad idea".Elana's heartbreak and vulnerability due to the breakup with Bree and her need to see her again, even if it's at her wedding, strikes a chord. I wish the story were longer, but then it wouldn't be a novella. Somewhat patiently awaiting the release of book 2. Is it here yet?A word of cauti [...]


    9. Cake by Jove Bell is hot, smoking hot, to tell you the honest truth. This novella is short and sexy and just what the doctor ordered if you need to jump start your heart. (I am not a doctor, so read at your own risk). The writing is solid, the characters are great. I could have easily read an entire novel about these two ladies.I was given this book by Book Enthusiast Promotions


    10. I may have a boyfriend, but I still find strong, independent women very sexy. The cover of this book made me think that I might meet such a woman in this book, and I wasn’t disappointed.Kelly Miller is a pastry chef, who is caught completely unaware by her brother’s sudden and unexpected desire to marry a girl Kelly never met and that her brother couldn’t have known that long either. As a pastry chef, she is expected to make a wedding cake and be at the wedding and be happy for him, but sh [...]


    11. Note: I received this ARC from Ylva Publishing in exchange for an honest review.You can also find the review on my blog, FarNerdy.This was my first read by Jove Belle, and I was not disappointed. A little fast-paced for my liking (but this only due to the novella length, and not a judgment on the author's writing ability at all), I still enjoyed the story of Kelly and Elena, and their trepidation adventuring into a relationship after some challenges set before them, both from the past, as well a [...]


    12. Who doesn’t love a good piece of Cake?!This was a sweet read and if you didn’t love Cake before you certainly will after reading this book by Jove Belle. This was a quick read and it was perfect for a cold winters day and definitely will warm you up! Kelly and Elana should be a recipe for disaster but instead they find a way to heat up the house and will have you opening a window to cool off before you know it. Novella’s are usually too short and I don’t feel like I get to really know an [...]


    13. A very quick, erotic lesbian novel. So quick I was shocked when I reached the last page on my Kindle. But it's labeled as "Bitterroot Saga #1", so if there are more stories with Elana and Kelly to come, I'd be thrilled to read them. It's a very simple beginning to what is hopefully a longer story. Elana's ex-girlfriend marries Kelly's brother. Elana and Kelly meet at the wedding and fall in mad lust with each other. Shenanigans (and sex) ensue (mostly sex). At the end of the book they reach a de [...]


    14. I really enjoyed reading this novella, the subtle dance of attraction was engaging, and watching the two women decide what they really wanted from each other was entertaining. It was just too bad the story was a novella as it was a great read and it would be fun to see more of Kelly and Elana.


    15. This was both a charming and sexy story. I'm now waiting for Bitterroot Queen -- the second book in the Bitterroot Saga.





    16. In an effort to expand my reading horizons, I’ve been trying to read more of the F/F romances the blog receives review invites for. I am not ashamed to admit that girl-on-girl action can be quite uncomfortable for me to read at times, making me a bit squeamish. But when done right, when there’s a connection between the women, I find it uncomfortable for an entirely different reason because it can quite squirm inducing. It’s because of this that I’ve been very selective about the books I [...]


    17. Hottt! Just what I needed when I needed it. Very satisfying. I like hopeful endings they don't always have to be happy ones.

    19. Jove Belle’s new novella, Cake, intertwines complicated family dynamics with a steamy hook-up at a wedding that swiftly turns into the possibility of something more. When the bride’s ex, Elana Verdad, decides to make an appearance on the big day, she encounters the groom’s sister Kelly Miller, a drop-dead gorgeous, professional pastry chef who has established a solid career specializing in cake-making. Kelly is there more to fulfill a family obligation than by choice, having been pressed i [...]


    20. Jove Belle gives us another wonderful story. I was so excited to be able to read and review this latest book for her. The name at first had me going hmm, what is this book about, but as soon as you open the cover you realize just how the name came about.Even though this is a short story, it has the feel as if it is a full length novel, which is wonderful. The way that the story is written keeps you connected with Kelly and Elana. I could feel the pain and self torment that Elana was putting hers [...]


    21. CAKE is an entertainig, fast and hot novella. I liked the story and the main characters as well. It's written as always in a entertaining and steamy way. The sex scenes are hot and well written too.The sparks fliying high between Kelly and Elana on Kellys brothers and Elanas ex-girlfriends wedding. The starting point for they're envolvement can't be worse. The desaster is preprogrammed. Can they build a relationship? It's a little bit sad, that it's only a novella (in my opinion it could actuall [...]


    22. Wow! I am so happy that Jove Belle is writing again. I was immediately pulled into this story and don't remember looking up from my kindle once. As we have come to expect with Jove Belle's work, the story was well written with good pacing, the characters were likeable and of course the sex was HOT.I loved the two main characters, Kelly and Elana. I could really empathize with them and their situations. I loved that Elana was strong and vunerable at the same time, and that Kelly was so supportive [...]


    23. This was a cute read. I wasn't sure where it was headed after reading the first page but then I caught on and really started enjoying this story.Kelly's brother is getting married and has asked her to make the cake since she is the only one in the family that can bake. Kelly and her brother really don't get along but she agrees to do this one thing for him. I liked Kelly's attitude all the way through the story. The story gets really interesting when Kelly shows up to the wedding rehearsal and t [...]


    24. I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest reviewI didn't realize what I was getting into with this book, I was really enticed by the summary, and didn't realize this was a bite sized treat and not the full sized bar. What disappointed me the most about this was the length, as I could have read so much more about Kelly and Elana. There is a lot that happens in a very short time, and there are several very erotic interludes. The sex scenes are really thrilling. The characters also seem w [...]


    25. A good afternoon read. The characters were sweet, sexy and complex - well developed and relatable for sure. The plot was enjoyable, though a bit contrived - why was Elena even invited to her ex's wedding when clearly no one wanted her there? I wish it had been a full-length novel so the plot could have been expanded a bit and so I could get to know the characters better, but as a novella it wasn't overly rushed and I'll look forward to the next installment in the series! I was provided with a co [...]


    26. I enjoyed reading this novella very much as I have done other books by Jove Belle. The characters are nicely drawn and I certainly had sympathy for Alana and her situation. There was the right amount of humour and pathos in this well written novella and it left you wanting more. The attraction between Alana and Kelly is there right from the start and you know there will be fireworks and the sex certainly makes them go with a bang.Jove sent me a review copy of this book and I'm glad she did.
