it was amazing

The pages of Kate Belle’s new novel, Being Jade, contain magic. Compelling magic that forces the turning of the next one. Magic that haunts you between reading sessions, and long after the covers have been closed and the book assigned its spot on your shelves.
Kate’s prose is as intelligent and poetic as any literary novel, but equally it has a down-to-earth rawness that draws you in, unlaces your boots and sits you down with a good, strong cuppa. It seems strange to say that about an erotic story but while the sex scenes are magnificently drawn, they meld so seamlessly into the narration they’re almost invisible, as explicit as they are.
I loved Kate’s first novel, The Yearning, and expected more of the same. But while Being Jade has similar strength to it, it’s different. Better. It’s like Kate has found her feet in the literary arena and if this is a sign of things to come, I cannot wait for more.
