OMG, what a book!!! I am not even sure where to start with this. This book is so well written. It is not for everyone. There are going to be those that love it and those that hate it. It is definitely deep and dark, very dark. Belle is fighter in this book. I so loved her character. You feel everything that she is going through. All of the heartbreaking moments that she has in her life, just doesn’t seem fair. Yet you know that this could really happen. It could easily be based on someone’s real ...more

Ivy Love is my kindred spirit. She has a way of bring written feelings to life. I can’t say enough about her and her books.

This book is not about love or romance this book is on how to survive until you cant anymore. Belle is a bright young girl until her world is changed by one of her brother’s friends. Eric is a psychopath.

Everything in me was routing for Belle. She took matters into her own hands and lived for a long time moving from place to place at such a young age. All to keep her famil

All I can say is this book is amazing. Belle is an amazing character. I love how strong, hard headed and full of love she is for her family. I hate how she had to have things end for her and her loved ones. If you get a chance to read this book please do.

*This is not a spoiler. However, if you are looking for a happy ending, like Belle says "There won't be one."*

Belle's Goodbye is a gut wrenching story that could easily be real. There are many woman that have gone through the same routine or are currently going through it. Author Ivy Love has a natural gift for bringing every day deamons to light. This book can leave you in tears, questioning the world and people around you.
Belle was an average teenager until one day she met a Monster that shat

OH MY GOD!!! I floved this book! Ivy Love wrote a novel that could easily be based on real life events. I was so emotional while reading Belle's Goodbye. Belle is a fighter through and through who stopped at nothing to take her life into her own hands. Ivy does an amazing job of depicting a heartbreaking tragedy. I loved it from beginning to end.

>Book Review – Belle’s Goodbye

>I am an independent reviewer. This book is a standalone horror book without any type of HEA. This is the story of Belle, a young girl blackmailed and tortured for 2 years, until a solution appears to her. The story revolves around the sadistic and evil behavior of Eric and what he puts Belle through at the young age of only 15. The descriptions of the tortures and rapes are horrific and set the stage for Belle’s decision in the end.

>Belle comes from a lovi

O.M.F.G.!!!!!! This is the darkest book I have ever read. I have been a huge fan of Ivy's work and this book was all kinds of dark and taboo.

I don't recommend this book if you are sensitive to any type of abuse as this book is very dark. I mean dark!!!!

Ivy has it done herself with this one, and I won't be the least bit surprised to see her name out among some of the other authors who write in this sub-genre. She put some of the bestsellers, like Pepper Winter's, Pam Godwin or even CJ Roberts, t

Ivy Love has written a book like no other. Belle's Goodbye is a book that will bring out all kinds of emotions, Angst, heartbreak and bravery.
When you think your life is going to go one way but does a total different route you can't help feel everything Belle is going through. Her reality becomes tragic but the bravery that Belle shows throughout this whole story will fall off the pages.
Ivy Love shows you how people can be perceived in a total different light and when the truth is revealed you

Wowza!! This book was amazing!! Though it's not going to be for everyone as it's dark and very emotional. It's a gutwrenching book about survival. Belle is so full of bravery and stength.....and she loves her family with everything she has.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this review voluntarily

Ivy Love's writing gets better with each book. This was a tragic tale of Belle's life, and I have to say she warns us on the first page: If you’re looking for a happy ending this isn’t it.

Lots of triggers in this book, but it does take us on an interesting ride.

This book is extremely dark and is definitely not for anyone below the age of 18 with the subjects that are covered in this book.

Belle is 15 years old when she is forced into a relationship with Eric after he rapes her, holding her brother's future in his hands. Yet she sees a light at the end of the tunnel when he graduates and will be leaving for college.

Unfortunately for Belle things don't go as planned and soon she finds herself running for her life.

I have mixed reviews about this book for d

Belles Goodbye by Ivy Love an astonishing five-star read. This is the first book by this author I have read, but it will not be the last, I loved her writing. This book does come with a warning, it’s not mean for readers under 17 years old as it does contain some scenes not everyone will be comfortable with. As the blurb says, ‘If you’re looking for a happy ending this isn’t it.’ But as you read you will understand why. My own warning would be don’t read this book if you don’t have time to finis ...more

Belle’s Goodbye is a dark read with a touch of feels. If you like sunshine and rainbows, this book isn’t for you. If you’re like me and a fan of the dark arts, then this book IS for you. This book is different than what’s out there but still has that darkness I love and crave. Ivy Love has done a fine job with the story and the characters. This story will stay with you long after you’ve finished. I give this 5 stars!

When I was in grade school, I was a total nerd. I spent more time reading books “above my grade level” and getting lost in them, than paying attention to the people around me. I loved the journey each book would take me on, I still do. When I was thirteen I picked up a pencil and wrote my first 100 page story. It was then I fell in love with writing. That moment I realized that I could not only lo ...more
