The Prairies Book Review


READ AN EXCERPT https://bookandmainbites.com/story/45012


J.J. Sorel has crafted a compelling, steamy read with a fantastic cast of supporting characters. The mixture of suspense, romance, and hot scenes rides along perfectly against the London backdrop. Both Penny and Blake are written perfectly. You fall for them in an instant, especially Penny–the starving artist–who has to deal with a drug addict mother and a pretty grim life. Blake offers up his secrets slowly, keeping you intrigued enough to tolerate his initial arrogance.

Though the suspense combines fantastically with the development of Penny and Blake’s relationship, it was their times together that kept me hooked the most. Each time they connected, the desire between them was patent, and I couldn’t wait to read more.

Blake develops into fantastic hero material and you can see why Penny would fall for him. Though their first time together happened quicker than I expected, it read perfectly. The chemistry and pure need for one another isn’t something easily forgotten.

If you’re after a visceral, steamy, well-craft romance, I’d highly recommend this book. The addition of twists, turns, and suspense makes it far more than just your average billionaire romance, and I would imagine most romance readers would find this a fascinating and lingering read.

Handsome billionaire Blake Sinclair is a confirmed bachelor who doesn’t believe in relationships. He’s never witnessed love in its finer form, for his youth was crippled by a dramatic upbringing. His past, and how he procured his considerable wealth are secrets he guards very carefully.

When he encounters Penelope Green at an art exhibition selling her work, he’s not only spellbound by her beauty, but by her art which speaks to his soul.

After Sinclair seduces her, he introduces her into a world of opulence. Her entry into his bedroom, other than evoking steamy passion, opens up a part of him that was hidden even from himself.  She soon not only becomes his object of obsession but manages to go somewhere no one else has gone: to the heart and soul of this damaged man. 

He finds himself swimming in unchartered waters. Although he’s not new to addiction, this time it’s not just sex that’s got Sinclair in its tantalizing grip, but something deeper and more powerful. Penelope’s not only a hot temptress, but a kindred spirit, and even more profoundly, she knows what “dark” feels like.

When he learns that she too has secrets, Penelope becomes his obsession. Even if his need for control is constantly challenged by her feisty independence: a quality that feeds his sudden unhealthy need to possess her.

Dylan Fox is a nefarious character that shadows this story. As the son of Sir William Fox, Blake’s late mother’s employer, Fox grew up terrorizing the young Blake. Believing that he stole from him, Dylan Fox, who runs a criminal empire, drags Blake into the centre of a scandal involving the rich and powerful, a private island, and teenage girls.

Blake Sinclair has one powerful weapon: a clear conscience. But he has to convince Penelope and the world around him first. Faced with criminal gangs, while working behind the scenes on a dangerous exposé involving big names, Blake flexes his considerable muscles to protect Penelope first, followed by his reputation.

From the very first page, it became obvious how interesting Dark Descent into Desire would be, as the story commenced with Blake and James conversing airily about women and how to live a life of no holds barred fun. One fascinating thing about this book is the refreshing way events are presented. The author highlights every detail vividly, in such an interesting way that makes reading it feel like motion picture.The plot is rich and well scripted, and continually throws up moments of suspense. One notable factor about the plot is how it closely follows on the trail of each major character. Each new chapter continues with the story from the perspective of a different character. So, in essence, it’s not just one major character that the reader has to identify with, and the good thing about it is that each character is well developed, distinct and with strong emotions. However, an opportunistic encounter between Blake (who is rich and handsome) and Penelope (poor and beautiful) would herald an intriguing love affair.Also worthy of mention is the author’s use of powerful lyrical lines in passing across a message.
