Review of ‘Cake’ by Jove Belle

‘Cake’ by Jove Belle is a really enjoyable story partly set in Bitterroot. It’s the story of what happens when you meet the first women to turn your head in a long time – but there are so many complications. Kelly Miller makes wedding cakes and when he brother asks her to make one for his unexpected wedding to a woman she’s never met, things start to get interesting. Elena Verdad is a psychologist with some emotional problems of her own. When she meets the sister of the groom sparks fly. They really shouldn’t go there, but something is pulling them together and neither feel able to resist. 

It’s a lovely story of a connection that should never work. Even Kelly and Elena can see that. But sometimes the person you need is the one you least expect. The emotional element between them was powerful and the sex was scorchingly hot. Off the scale. A really enjoyable novella.

Review of ‘Bitterroot Queen’ by Jove Belle

Bitterroot Queen (Bitterroot Saga #1)

Olly always feels the need to keep moving on. When she arrived in Bitterroot she feels somehow things might be different this time. Sam and her daughter Beth move from Las Vegas to open a motel and are faced with more problems than they could have envisaged. Mutual need brings them together and a simmering attraction begins. Jove Belle has written a rather wonderful story of finding the right place and the right person. Although the characters face difficulties and a fair bit of tension the overall feeling is of calm and belonging and the hope for something beautiful and right. Sam is strong and determined with a purpose. Olly is, to me, completely and utterly adorable and sexy. You can almost feel the steam coming off the page ever time she comes in the room.  This is emotional and romantic and I am so pleased it is the first in a planned series. I can’t wait for the next one.

Review of ‘Archer Securities’ by Jove Belle

Laila has been asked to look into thieving in her uncle’s company that he can’t trace. She runs an investigation firm and is extremely good at what she does. But so is the person siphoning off supplies. How she finds out what is going on and who is involved made for a fascinating read . I loved this story and now I know it’s part of a series I’m going to go back and read the first instalment. Laila has ASD of some description and it makes her quite a vulnerable character in some ways. Her attempt to get by in a neuro- typical world is helped by her family. In other ways she is miles ahead of other people and brilliant at her job. I enjoyed this element of her character. Trinity was a intriguing women and I want to know more about her. Her strength and commitment in many areas of her life was inspiring. There’s certainly depth to this story and it went way beyond what I expected.I was given this ARC by Ylva Publishing in return for an honest review.
