Her friends assure her that she is safe, but they start to think Kylie might be a bit paranoid. Will Kylie finally have her storybook romance? Or will her love and desire for Cameron be tainted from the start?


I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I had never heard of this author before and actually I believe this is her first book. I was asked by a friend if i would like to read Tainted Desire and leave a review. I happily agreed, I love finding new authors and getting a first hand chance at their stories. The title of the book took me by surprise as i thought it was in the erotica category. I don’t mind reading that genre but it’s not a fav of mine. I was pleasantly surprised that while it does have quite a few sex scenes it had a great plot and story to go along with it. It starts off with meeting the main character Kylie Jenkins, She lives with an abusive bastard of a boyfriend, which you never get to really meet him through out the story, just bits and pieces of the abuse he’s caused Kylie. As Kylie finally gets fed up she finally reaches out for help from her childhood friends who live in another state. She moves in with her best friend Courtney and tries to rebuild her life. Not only will she have Courtney to help her but she also has Cameron, Courtney’s twin brother who also happens to be Kylie’s best friend and childhood love. From the time Kylie arrives she is immediately drawn to Cameron. The only problem i had with this was abused woman normally wouldn’t go right to a new relationship so quickly. Within just a couple days of living with Courtney, Kylie starts dating Cameron.

Now I don’t want to give away any spoilers since this is a series and one book follows the other. Cameron is such a kind hearted person and wants to do everything he can to help Kylie and keep her in his life. This was an amazing first book to a series and I enjoy reading it! It does leave you with a HUGE cliffhanger at the end  but that just sets the screen for the next book at that is already released and ready for you to one click!
