J.J Sorel is a romance writer that knows how to create steamy scenes and healing touches. In her latest book, “Uncovering Love,” Sorel has joined together two troubled souls in a fantastical place. What happens is even more amazing.
Ainsley Alcott is a 40-year-old woman with a turbulent past. She is living with her mother and trying to protect them both from her abusive ex, who happens to be a cop. Looking for a way to regain her life, she heads to a curtain call. She had not acted in years, but thought it was time to step out again. Ainsley gets an acting job. She is tasked with acting like an administrative assistant to Daniel Love, all while spying on his family. She changes her name and heads to the Starlington Estate. Daniel is a strange character. His wife has gone missing, he paints to loud music, and has an infatuation with a green dress. When Daniel meets Ainsley, who is now Scarlet Black, his interest is piqued. Daniel and Scarlet begin a friendship which leads to both finding love again. There are bumps in the but in the end, an older woman and a younger man learn a lot about each other.
I will admit that there are many things happening in this book, but Sorel has tied them all together quite well. The plot was interesting and left me at a cliffhanger whenever I had to put it down for a moment.
What I truly loved about this story is that Scarlet is an older woman who attracts the desires of a younger man. She has real emotions that come with age. Scarlet does not act like a cougar on the hunt. She is a real woman, dealing with real feelings.
I also enjoyed the way Sorel places the erotic scenes in her story. She does not let the sexual content take center stage. The reader can enjoy a story filled with plot twists, unexpected turns, and a budding romance. There is extreme passion, but not filth.
As a whole, “Uncovering Love,” is a work that can be enjoyed leisurely. Readers are drawn into a story that we could only wish would happen in real life. Sorel writes in a way that is easy to follow and keeps you wanting to know what will happen next. I would only recommend this book to readers over 18 due to the content and language. Five stars!
