Book Review: Bella Key

                                                            ***Intended for Adults Only***                                              

                                                Today's review is on Bella Key by Scarlet Chastain

Though I'm not really a girl on girl type of chick, the voyeur in me won out, and I have to say that I was a bit turned on by Bella Key.

I have always been a firm believer in the fact that the written word trumps TV, movies, and video's. For instance, watching porn may turn you on but it leaves nothing to the imagination.

When I read a book all of my senses come into play. I can smell the ocean, I can hear the rain, I can feel the caress, and I can picture everything playing out in my head. Now that; in the case of erotic books, leaves me hot and heavy.

I have read a lot of erotic pieces and had the opinion that all should have hot and descriptive sex. Now, with the help of this non de plume author, I have a better understanding between the erotic genre and erotica genre. As she said, "The beauty of erotic romance (versus erotica) is varying heat levels. Some stories warrant a fierce thunderstorm complete with lightning bolts, others require a rain shower." Bella Key is one that requires the rain shower.

Maddie Jacobs seems to have it all. She has a great job and the perfect boyfriend. But no one knows what goes on behind closed doors. Though she knows that her boyfriend totally adores her and he treats her like a princess, there's just no spark and she doesn't really know why.

Between her mother's constant reminders about her biological clock and the proposal of marriage from her boyfriend she realizes that it's just to much. Her fight or flight instincts kick in and she "runs away". On a whim, Maddie decides to head to Bella Key for the weekend. Little did she know that this spur of the moment decision would forever change her life.

Once she's at Bella Key, Maddie heads out in search of a place to stay. After a quick check on the internet she decides to stay at Sunny's Bed and Breakfast only to find that it's closed awaiting repairs to the A/C.(Living on an island myself I can relate to "everything being slow, including the workers.") All is not lost however, she is offered to stay free of charge by Sunny herself.

The two women become fast friends and Maddie is given the chance to explore and experience her attraction to other women.

Though I have never read anything written by this non de plume author, I'm heading over to Amazon to check out her other books in the erotica genre. If this tickled my fancy I can only imagine what the others will do to me.

Hot and Heavy here I come!

Book Description: via Amazon

Maddie Jacobs must be crazy. At least that’s what her mother thinks. Professionally, she’s confident and secure; personally, she’s a hot mess. Not even a marriage proposal from a man who adores her can quell her search for something more.

In need of an escape, Maddie flees to Key West’s most southern island, Bella Key, to rest and recharge at Casa Bonita. She almost gives up on the weekend retreat when the Bed & Breakfast is closed for repairs until Sunny Rojas, the inn owner, extends an offer of friendship, sweet tea and a room. Still reeling from a breakup with her longtime partner, Sunny is thankful for the diversion from her own broken heart.

The arrival of a fierce storm forces the women’s emotional journey to a head and leads them into each other’s arms. But can Maddie throw her hangups to the wind and go with her heart? The magic of Bella Key teaches her that passion cannot be placed neatly into boxes labeled right and wrong, because love knows no boundaries.
