3 hot & steamy stories with 3 different scenarios & kinkiness. The 1st two stories were ok and I enjoyed reading them but not so much the 3rd though. 1st story was about a happily married couple (June & Ashlyn) who is opened to the idea of a threesome and have experimented with it prior - so you get the drift where this story is heading. 2nd is about 2 Long-lost friends (Abby & Simone) who had feelings for each other but was never communicated/expressed between them. Somehow, ins ...more

It was an uncommon read, as it stands in it's title as well.
There are three novellas in it with a lot of erotica and a little bit of romance.

The first story was about a threesome, which was a first for me to read with three female characters in it, and although I should think it is wrong or wierd, because of the infidelity issue, actually it was quite hot, but sometimes I couldn't really follow who stands or sits or lies where, and which hand or mouth is whose. :)

The second novella was about rek

Very hot, and I liked that each novella showed a different stage of a relationship. I would particularly love to see a follow up to the third story, but they were all great and were perfect examples of non-vanilla erotic romances.

All three of the novellas in this collection are sure to please a variety of erotic tastes! The collection begins with Raw Silk, featuring a happily married couple who invite another into their bedroom. June works hard in a cutthroat corporate setting and when aggressive Katerina shows up and becomes very pushy June can't help but want to cave into the temptation. While completely faithful to her wife, June still divulges her feelings to her wife Ashlyn. Ashlyn agrees to let her wife indulge in ...more

The first story was the best part of the book. I really liked the steamy lesbian sex, it was engaging, and kept my attention. The other two stories didn't do much for me. I gave it 3 stars because somewhere around the midpoint, I lost interest and I skimmed through the rest.

A disclaimer: I don’t really read erotica. However, Jove Belle is a great writer, so when she asked me to review “Uncommon Romance,” I was enthusiastic. And I certainly was not disappointed.

“Uncommon Romance” contains three novellas: “Raw Silk,” “On Her Knees” and “Hollis.” My favorite is “On Her Knees,” perhaps because, for me, it strikes the perfect balance between romance, plot and erotica. There is still plenty of raw and graphic sex (and the novella is no doubt erotica), but also the novell

Raw Silk
This is the first of three off the chart sexually explosive novellas that more than underscore the book cover's statement: Sometimes sex is the only way to say "I love you". The three main women in Raw Silk are certainly sexually creative in their own right, but then when they interact the sparks turn into roaring flames! I found myself feeling very affectionate to all three for their individuality and their intense eroticism. This is a most delectable story and I definitely recommend th

Three very hot and very different stories. That's the best bit, that each short is so fresh and new with its own trend.
Velvet Lounger
Three wonderful, sexually explicit and explosive novellas. Be warned – if you don’t like reading sexplicit scenes including mild/moderate BDSM – don’t buy or read this book.

This is my first book by Jove Belle and as with any new author one never knows quite what to expect. The descriptions often don’t reflect the story and the writing style and editing standard can be a problem.

But this book is excellent. It’s well written and edited. The three stories have a plot, characters we can engage with,

When you buy this book you will find three novellas by the same author all involving sex and relationships between females. While each story has their own twist and plots, the general theme I felt was taking risks and going for what you want. In each story the scenes and characters are well developed and the stories read smoothly. What I liked most about this book was you could read each story as a standalone during a break from work, life or on a short trip.
The first story is titled Raw Silk.

This book served as a series of firsts for me. It was the first novel I've read by Jove Belle, the first erotic lesbian romance novel I've read, and the first time I was more into the relationship development while reading an erotic novel rather than the smut. I found myself skimming more than reading. I would skim through the sexplicit scenes to find out what happens to the main characters in the end.

Uncommon Romance was made up of three novellas. It was a nice sampling of Jove Belle and her wo

Jove Belle can write one heck of a steamy time let me tell you. Each novella gets more intimate and more steamier.

In Raw Silk I was not expecting the phone glory in the office nor was I expecting the threesome but holy batcave batman it happened and wow did it explode off the page. I thought oh a sweet story about a beautiful marriage between these two woman and the fantasy of another helped to keep the spark going boy was I wrong there. This is one time I was shocked into reading more. Shocked

I have mixed feelings. While the sex in all three of these stories were certainly steamy, I had some problems with them too. I still think some readers will enjoy it, but it bothered me enough to take away from my enjoyment. Still they were sexy short stories.

My first issue is with the conditions in the writing style of the sex scenes. They were flowery, but “cunt” was used as a descriptor. I don’t have a problem

If you are looking for quick to read, hot f/f action then you’ve picked the right one. These steaming hot three novellas, transports us into a world of lesbian erotica that will get your blood boiling.

Each short story sets us up in a different stage of a relationship; going from the married and spicy couple being joined by a third, through the rekindled relationship between two high school girls with a hidden crush on each other and to the first meeting of a BDSM couple. Each story gives us flav

Jove Belle's “Uncommon Romance” is a collection of three F/F short stories. Each of the three stories is super sexy in it's own way. Story #1, “Raw Silk,” has a delightful F/F/F three-way. I'm not usually a fan of open marriage stories, but I liked this one. Story #2, “On Her Knees,” was really close to home for me. I think we've all had that one crush that made us miserable yet we wanted them anyway. Story #3, “Hollis,” has a harder edge to it, with some hot dominant/submissive nookie. I loved ...more

I was misled by this title and expected 3 erotic Romance novellas. After reading each, I’d categorize the first 2 as Erotica, rather than Romance. There was very little story versus an abundance of sex scenes. I was bored enough to skim those scenes to find out “WHAT HAPPENED?”. The last novella, while loaded with sex scenes was definitely a ROMANCE, with lots of sexual tension, well-developed primary and secondary characters and an interesting plot. I enjoyed the last novella enough to read oth ...more

Over all these were good stories. I would have liked more from the first story. It didn't feel finished to me. But I think that goes for most short stories. The second and third story have a little BDSM with the third having more. It was interesting to read f/f stories that are like this. It was a nice change and I will be on the lookout for more of this author's work.

This book gets 3.75 stars from me.

This will not be the last book by Jove that I read. Bravo, Jove, Bravo!!

This book contains three fast paced short stories full of hot steamy sex. Each story deals with a same sex relationship, with erotic sex scenes of domination and submission but also very loving moments between a married couple. Although F/F bondage is not my usual genre to read, I found these stories interesting and informative.

At last, three novellas in 1 book WRITTEN by the same author. I love this type of book.

Each story is an erotic romance with a different couple, story, theme, and HEA.

This book blew me away. There are 3 short stories which are completely different from each other but at the same time makes up a great little book to read. It was hot and steamy yet each story had a clear story line too. My favorite was the third story.

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. ...more
