Reviewed by: Shawn Weisser
Used to the finer things in life, Alex Kincaid has always depended on her father’s money to bail her out of trouble. However, after receiving her third DUI in eighteen months, not even the infamous Franklin Kincaid can get her out of this mess. In hopes of teaching his wreck loose daughter a lesson, Franklin sends Alex to his brother’s ranch in San Eduardo, Texas to learn responsibility.
She doesn't know the first thing about horses or housekeeping, but if she wants to keep her five million-dollar trust fund, then she needs to make the best of it—even if that means being civil to the sarcastic, yet incredibly sexy cook, Brett Hartman.
Brett is stunned to realize that the new worker is a woman. Not only is Alex a female, but she is also the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. For as lovely as she is, Alex is also as stubborn and obstinate as a wild stallion. She argues with him constantly and makes his already chaotic life a living Hell. However, the more she reveals about herself, the more he realizes that her arrogant demeanor is only a façade. Deep down, she craves encouragement and he means to be the one to give it to her.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I could not put it down. Monica Robinson’s Alex: Prisoners of Desire was fun and intriguing to read. I was hooked in the first chapter and could not stop reading. The characters; hookers, drug addicts, beauty pageant contestants, and spoiled little rich girls, were interesting and real (honestly) and I found myself fully invested in their lives and outcomes. The “convicts” became people as I read and the author was able to make me want to know more about them. I was able to feel empathy for them as I read about their individual situations. Robinson's book is really well written and developed and I am ready for book two!
