It was like it knew that I needed him.

He was broken. I was broken.

Holy Hell!!

First off let me say that I LOVE this author and I’ve read nearly all of her books. But this one right here? Me no likey. I really tried on this one but I just couldn’t do it and it pains me to give this one such a low rating because these authors work so hard on their stories and pray that we as readers, will love them as well. But you know what? You can't win them all.

BESTIE: Some elements are loosely connected to the author's own personal story which she's incorporated into Bestie. Even though this states it's part of a series it can be read as a standalone.

Molly was born and raised within the Jokers Wrath Motorcycle Club, outside of it she has no one she can call close friends. Her only saving grace is her relationship with Michael.

Just when you think life couldn't be any sweeter it throws curveballs at us now and then, weither you're st

I m glad the gangs back.

I m so happy I m are getting more of the Joker MC. I luvd the first 4 books so I was dyin for this book. I liked the overall story but I was left wanting more. Molly's character is good my heart went out to her throughout this book. She is dealing with a crappy breakup and her heart is broken. Life is just kicking her up the butt. Her family and family's are amazing. She just can't seem to get over Michael until she meets Roman walkin down the road. Molly knows of him

Molly and Roman are two people suffering from heartache and trying to move on from their past relationships. Which is proving to be a lot harder than they thought it would be. For Molly she just wants to know why her ex left her the way he did. And Roman just wants to understand how his ex could be so selfish and why he still wants her as badly as he does. The two meet when they both need someone in their life and become besties. Feelings start to develop between them when they become close, but

I have read 20+ books by Bella Jewel, so she is an author whose books I keep a close eye on. I did not know what this book was about prior to starting it. I loved the previous books in the Jokers' Wrath MC and was excited about Bestie. It was a sweet romance with some drama. Both Roman and Molly went through a bad break-up and are trying to move on, which isn't always easy. When they meet each other one day they decide to keep in touch a

I really like Bella Jewel. However, this book didn't do it for me. I liked how some of the events were based on the author's past, but this story just seemed too normal. It felt like I went back to college and experienced common insecurities caused by the opposite sex.

Two people going through difficult break ups. They try the friend thing. Things get complicated, and yada yada yada.

This is such a difficult review to write, and a hard rating to give. Bella Jewel is one of my favourite authors and she's written some of my favourite books. I've read pretty much everything she's ever written and I've never struggled with one of her books like I did with this one. I even struggled with what to rate this book, I did not enjoy this story at all. And I hate to have to say that as a massive Bella Jewel fan and also knowing how close this stor

I absolutely love this series and love the world that Bella Jewel has created that combines the Sinner's and Joker's Wrath MC. I honestly can't wait for more!

That being said, something was off about this novella. It just didn't carry the Joker's Wrath MC vibe. It felt more like a filler an inbetweener novella to wet the senses and keep the fans fed while completing the next book in the series. Lots of authors have these inbetweener's and they drive the fans nuts wanting more.

I have never been more annoyed with a hero in my life Holy Crap this book was a mess and the "Hero" if we can call him that was the worse thing EVER not only was the friendship between him and the Heroine weird they both acted like 13 year old girls and the whole "bestie" thing got on my nerve and just gave me a big headache

But honestly the worse thing was how the hero was portrayed this guy had no self respect no dignity absolutley no pride. Are we Supposed to find this man sexy?? the way he
After endless thoughts of giving up and countless times closing and re-opening the book, I finally made it through! This book was such a struggle but stubborn me didn’t want to give up on a book. I just had to finish it.


My usual ratings are between 3 and 5 though I rarely rate 3. Since I had so many problems with this story and had already planned a few times on giving up I just couldn’t rate it higher than 2. I had hoped that there would be at least something in this book that would change my

Review by Lisa Kane

Molly is the daughter of Santana and Maddox from the Joker's Wrath series. She's just gotten dumped by her boyfriend Michael and she's hurting. She's trying to move on, but he doesn't even answer her calls or her texts. If she just knew why he wanted out she could cope with things better. When she runs into a friend of a friend, Roman she feels a nice connection. Turns out he lives near her.

Roman is fresh off a recent break up too. His girlfriend dumped him and he's been tryi

Nope, I'm so sad but this one just didn't do it for me. I really struggled to get through it and finish it.

I loved their friendship but I wasn't feeling them together as a couple. And Roman, with this book being part of the Joker's Wrath series (which I loved), I was comparing him to the previous heroes from the other books in this series and he just didn't match up.. Hung up on his ex who kept stringing him along. (view spoiler)

Please note this is not your typical MC romance, Molly is the daughter of the President of the MC but there is no club business violence etc this is a chance meeting, fate romance and can be read as a stand alone.

I love Bella Jewel & I love mc reads but this was different to previous books.

Bestie I just liked, I suppose every characters story needs to be told but I found this immature at times and the characters irritating.

Story with perfect dose of humor and deep feelings that holds the reader's attention. I laughed out loud and I was also sad in some scenes and the reading was perfect.
Recommend! I'm looking forward to the next book.

I'm not rating this because I don't want to hurt one of my favorite gals. I've read tons of Bella's books and typically love them. I just couldn't finish this one. Moving on to the next book in this series. I'm sure the Bella Jewel we love will rock this next one. ...more

Alright, get ready for an "I'm in the minority" review!

I will start with how much I love Bella Jewel and all her work, how I look forward to every single book she graces us with, and her skill in crafting this book universe that consists of characters from her Jokers Wrath MC books, MC Sinners books, hell even her 'Til Death and Amore books are set in the same universe and intertwine with each other! How awesome is that?! So I'm all pumped for this book and it pains me to say that I struggled t

I have devoured every book by Bella Jewel that I could get my hands as soon as it was available and I especially love her motor cycle romances. Needless to say, I was giddy to become a part of Joker Wrath's world again and meet another couple created from Bella Jewel's imaginations, especially after reading that a lot of her inspiration for Molly and Roman's story came f

Bella Jewel has a way of taking rugged, alpha males and sassy heroines and creating possibly the best raw romances ever. I have been an avid reader of this author for a while now and no joke, I have read every single one of her books. She is a writer who continues to surprise me with her imagination and creativity. Before I read the book, she wrote that Bestie was based on a lot of real memories and somehow this mad

Rowan and Molly are both going through a bad breakup and looking for something new, not a relationship per se, but a friendship. And that’s what they get…. But they never expected their connection to jump to another level… And I think a lot of us can relate to both of them. We’ve all had our heart broken and want/need that one person t

"Worth the fight."

I was very excited for more Joker's Wrath MC and couldn't wait to get my hands on Bestie. It wasn't until I did, that I realized it wasn't really a badass biker story. The main character, Molly, was raised as part of the Joker's Wrath MC family, and she spends time with them, but she lives and works outside of the lifestyle.

I confess that this is my least favorite in the series so far. While I did get to spend a little time at the clubhouse, I mostly stayed inside Molly's h

Molly and Roman are trying to over the heartbreak they are both going through. When they bump into each other things start looking up. They begin by exchanging text messaages. They decide to become besties and its a friendship like they have never known. They can talk about anything, joke and just have a great time.
No surprise when they start getting intimate with each other. The problem is Roman has still not been able to break loose from his ex. He still talks to her and she keeps reeling him

I haven't had a chance to read Bella Jewel's novels before, but I know that after reading Bestie, I've been missing out on something good. Although Bestie was part of the Jokers' Wrath series, I had no problem following the storyline and was intrigued - I wanted to know more about this motorcycle club and the president's daughter. Not having had read any of the previous novels, I don't have anything to compare the style of this one to t

As soon as I read Bella Jewel’s message to her readers about how personal Bestie is to her and how it provides insight into her own heartbreak as well as after reading Molly’s first words in the story, my mind instantly went to the Nazareth’s “Love Hurts” song and how much of a heartless bastard love can be, especially the kind that refuses to let go of someone, holding them prisoner and tormenting them to the point that it suffocates them and harms them in limitless ways.

Love hurts

Although this is described as being the 5th book in the Bella Jewel’s Jokers Wrath MC series I think I found this the one that I had the most issue with. Now, in saying that I don’t mean that I didn’t like the book, I just took issue with one of the characters, namely Roman. Some may love him but for me I found more issues that I wanted and that sort of turned me off him a little.
With the knowledge of the fact that events in the author’s own life had a resonance with the story, I knew i
