The BookViral Review:
Shrouded in mystery and scandal Dark Descent into Desire has all the hallmarks of a genre classic with Sorel’s particular brand of erotic tension proving convincing, complicated and sensual.
A novel of this sort not only depends on the chemistry between its characters but risks making readers nervous if it doesn’t find the right balance between the plausible and the bizarre. Get it wrong and it becomes absurd but Sorel has it down to a fine art.
Her strategy is to never tell us too much whilst her more erotic scenes prove both visual and tactile. A lot of this is down to Blake and Penelope being perfectly pitched along with Sorel’s ability to make their relationship convincing and as with her previous releases, Dark Descent into Desire proves much more than a soft-core escapade.
Sexual experimentation is one thing, but the real human personality is something else, something incomparably deeper and more valuable and it’s the humanistic element of eroticism that Sorel conveys so well. Yes, there’s a degree of erotic brinksmanship but one of the strengths of Sorel’s plot is how thoughtful it is and how clearly it reveals what really happens between her characters. How the secrets Blake and Penelope harbour gradually emerge and how they find the strengths in each other so that their story’s ending belongs completely to them.
A five-star racy read with never a dull moment fans of Sorel’s novels will love her latest release with Dark Descent into Desire being unreservedly recommended
