Deepest Kiss by J. Kenner is a steamy romance novel that promises to take readers on a journey of self-discovery and passion.
Kenner is a New York Times bestselling author who is well-known for her erotic romances, including the international bestselling Stark trilogy. Deepest Kiss is the second book in her exciting Stark series, and it was first published on March 8, 2016.
Kenner’s writing style is fast-paced, sensual, and engaging. Her characters are complex, flawed, and realistic, which adds depth to the story.
The themes of passion, love, trust, and betrayal are explored through the eyes of the two main characters, Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks. The novel is set in Los Angeles, and Kenner paints a vivid picture of the city’s high society and the glamorous lifestyle that comes with it.
The plot revolves around Jackson and Sylvia’s complicated relationship. Jackson is a successful businessman who hires Sylvia as his assistant, but their professional relationship soon turns into a steamy romance.
However, their pasts come back to haunt them, and they must face the consequences of their actions. The conflicts between Jackson and Sylvia are intense and emotionally charged, and Kenner skillfully navigates them, keeping the reader on the edge of their seat.
One of the book’s strengths is its powerful character development. Both Jackson and Sylvia are flawed, but Kenner manages to make the reader care about them and root for their happy ending.
Jackson is a complex character who struggles with his own demons, and his vulnerability makes him relatable. Sylvia, on the other hand, is a strong and independent woman who is not afraid to take risks.
The chemistry between the two characters is electric, and their love story is both sensual and touching. Another strength of Deepest Kiss is its pacing.
The novel moves quickly, and the tension is high from beginning to end. The plot twists and turns, and the reader is never quite sure what will happen next.
Kenner’s writing style is engaging, and she knows how to keep the reader hooked. However, the novel has some weaknesses.
The writing can be repetitive at times, and some of the dialogue feels forced. The novel also relies heavily on sex scenes, which may not be to everyone’s taste.
Some readers may find that the explicit language and sexual content are too much. Overall, Deepest Kiss is a well-written and engaging romance novel that is sure to please fans of the genre.
Kenner’s storytelling is skillful, and the chemistry between the two main characters is palpable. Although the novel has some weaknesses, it is an enjoyable read that will leave readers satisfied.
I would recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys steamy romance novels and is looking for a captivating love story. Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
