Love and Devotion by Jove Belle

Rating 1/5 stars
Pub. Date June 1st 2013


KC Hall loves her family, her small East Texas town, and her best friend, Emma Reynolds. All of that takes a backseat when her lover beckons. Lonnie is blond, beautiful, and willing. She’s also married and a lifelong friend of KC’s mama.

KC knows the affair is a bad idea, but she just can’t help herself. When presented with the lush landscape of Lonnie’s body, KC subscribes to the philosophy of orgasm first, think later.” Unfortunately, a secret that big is impossible to keep in a close-knit community where everybody knows everybody else’s business. The scandal would hurt her entire family.

Emma is KC’s exception, the one woman she loves enough to not have sex with. When Emma confesses that she’s loved KC since high school, KC is terrified. One wrong move and she could lose Emma completely.

Is she willing to let her family pay the price for her good time? Or will she turn to Emma to discover the true meaning of love and devotion?


Note: If you have a problem with lesbians don't read this book.

After reading the lurb I am sure you realised what this is about. I didn't have a problem with KC`s preference for a partner but with the decisions she made. I guess finding out that KC had an affair with a woman, who is 20 years older than her (that wasn't a problem either) ,  the mothers best friend and married with a daughter (A little cliche if you ask me and my problem with the book). Then a faint square cam with Emma, KC, Lonnie and Mara. And I don't understand why Trina and Jackson had to have that end.

I would like to add a contrast that the author created in the story. You see Emma and KC are open about their sexuality and dont try to hide it. But the fact that in Texas and especially in a small town like the one the girls live people are not open minded. Yet no one was looking either of the girls in a weird way. I hope that other F/F books are better than Love and Devotion. I will stick to M/M from now on.

Did the author wanted to show what real life is in America? You have seen some of those american shows? No. After some thinking and a talking with a book body I can to the conclusion that the author hates men. She made them seem like weak creatures that are not good enough for anything.
