Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

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 thirteen 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.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not great 16. Oktober 2014
Von jenny - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book read like a bad episode of Criminal Minds. I expected the start of the book to be the bank holdup but instead the whole book was about the bank. There were several flashbacks which I started skipping since they didn't seem necessary to me. There was no nice romance story no falling back in love. From what I got it was kind of two people in love break up twelve years later still in love then decide to make out in the middle of a room full of people when they are in danger of their lives. I didn't love other books by Jove Belle they were okay but I was hoping for better . This was worse it's only reedeming feature to me is that it was short. I also think most people wouldn't instantly forgive an ex who dumped them hadn't been seen for twelve years and then pointed a gun at them.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Okay read for an afternoon... 14. April 2015

I thought this was an okay read and a good book to settle in with if you have an afternoon to kill. There are a lot of moving parts in this story but, at the same time, it doesn't get too deep. Think of it like an action movie where the characters are kind of two dimensional, some details are fudged, or actions and reactions aren't necessarily realistic. I'm not saying that in a bad way because sometimes we just want to see an action movie, right? In fact, while reading this I could visually see it play out and it would work as a film.

Positives for the book...It's a really excellent premise. I haven't read this storyline in lesfic before and It appealed to me. The author writes natural flowing dialogue and it moved between all of the characters well. The two leads are both really likable and strong while being unique from each other. Overall, the writing is pretty solid.

Things that held the book back were the flashback scenes...at least for me. We're in the middle of a bank robbery but every other chapter we flash back to how Sera and Tor met in college and their developing relationship. I actually found the flashbacks to be sweet and well written but it throws off the pacing of the book because it keeps interrupting the intensity. I'm curious how the book would read if we had a prologue of their early relationship and then the rest of the book is just them now. The other things are what I mentioned above about it being characteristic of an action movie.

There isn't much romance in the book, unless you count the college scenes. I didn't mind this, though. I wasn't really expecting a romance in the middle of a robbery.

I think some other reviewers rated the book lower because of lack of some of these finer details but, strangely, I got hung up on this one part. I don't want to spoil it but let's just say there's this part with a woman and something happens but then it's just overlooked completely in comparison to other things/people. My mind just kept going, "Holy moly, did anyone just see that?! Woman #9 just...good gracious. Him? What about her?! Why is no one mentioning Woman#9? Do we even know her name?! What was she? A customer, right? She's gotta have a name. Someone, give her a name! Really? No one cares?" Lol

Anyway, like I said, it's an okay read and I think is enjoyable if you know what to expect (ie, little romance, no sex, somewhat thin plot with a lot of action).

3.0 von 5 Sternen Exciting Thriller, Plausible Romance, Major Plot Holes 27. Oktober 2014
Von Disraeli - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I read a couple of early Jove Belle novels and wasn't impressed, so I stopped buying her books. It just goes to show that authors can improve with practice. In The Job, Sera Andrews is an undercover FBI agent. She has spent two years infiltrating a corrupt American oil company, which has been providing money and arms to an Islamic terrorist group in exchange for having its oil holdings in the Middle East left undisturbed. Tor Jewell is the manager in charge of the downtown LA branch of a large bank. Fifteen years earlier, the two fell passionately in love at college, until Tor's father threatened to cut off her tuition if she didn't break up with Sera. Tor temporized and Sera walked out. Marcus, who has been displaced in the corrupt corporation's pecking order by Sera, hates her. Through persistent (and lucky) detective work, he discovers that Sera is an FBI agent and that she and Tor were lovers. Rather than kill Sera or turn her in to corporate higher-ups, he disarms her and brings her along with his crew in a robbery of Tor's bank. Tor recognizes Sera, even underneath a ski mask. She had hoped to meet Sera again, but this wasn't exactly what she had in mind. Rather than a quick smash and grab, Marcus and his crew settle down inside the bank and plant large bombs. It turns out that Marcus is a member of the Islamic terrorist group. Sera is thrown in with the rest of the hostages. Sera sees her task as freeing the hostages, killing the six gunmen and disarming the bombs. The action is reminiscent of Die Hard. No single action that Sera takes is unbelievable in itself, but the chances she could survive the entire sequence of events is remote. In the end, a badly battered Sera saves the day, and chances are that she and Tor will resume their romance. All in all, the book is an exciting and enjoyable read, if you can ignore plot holes large enough to drive an eighteen-wheeler through. A corrupt corporation is plausible, but this company operates as if it were the Mafia or a Mexican drug cartel. Why would the American gangster Marcus turn out to be an Islamic terrorist? Why do his subordinates, who are not terrorists, stick around on a suicide mission, instead or taking the money and escaping? When things start going wrong for Marcus, why doesn't he detonate his bombs? When Sera seriously wounds Marcus, why doesn't she finish him off, instead of allowing him to rise and take her out with a steel pipe? Why does one of Marcus' gang members turn on him at a crucial moment? If Ms. Belle knows the answers, she certainly hasn't shared them with her readers.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Loved The Job 17. Januar 2015
Von Eh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Well that was a fun ride.

I liked the overall pace of the novel and the author's crisp writing style. Sure the flashbacks tended to slow the action in places but I thought of them as breathers for both the reader and the characters. The action scenes themselves were easy to imagine and filled with enough tension to keep you turning pages, eager to see what would happen next.

The second chance at love was a nice touch and created that need for a successful outcome. When we first meet Sera she has thrown herself into a dangerous career path with little regard for her own safety. Tor gives her the motivation she needs to shine in a crisis. I'll let them have some intimate moments in the heat of battle. Much like the flashbacks, these moments Sera and Tor share together give the reader a chance to catch their breath before the next round of action.

It worked for me. I hope we see more romantic suspense from Jove Belle in the future.

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE JOB is Jove Belle's best yet! 15. Oktober 2014
Von LAS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Jove Belle has crafted a clever, fast-paced, action-packed story that will snatch you up for a ride you'll love. Sera Warren is the FBI agent trying to unravel the secret connections between local organized crime and terrorist financing. Her ex-lover, Torrence Jewel, is the manager of a large bank, a player in the financial system that symbolizes the evils of capitalism to US enemies. Their careers have provided each woman a way to forget about their painful breakup years ago. When Sera's cover is blown, she is forced to participate in a bank robbery. Sera knows she's in big trouble. How is she going to foil the robbery and protect innocent people--and herself from getting killed? She'll have to play along and act like the criminals until she comes up with a plan. When the bank manager appears, Sera levels her weapon, shocked to see Tor, the woman she still loves, in her cross hairs. When she yells, Tor realizes Sera is the masked robber. And their day has only begun.

The Job isn't your run of the mill lesfic novel. It will keep you on the edge of your seat and cheering for Sera and Tor until the very last page.
