Taint by S.L. Jennings
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
First - the cover is great love it that's what drew me to the book.
Second - "Justice Drake" really? Fantastic name for a male character.
In the first chapter Justice has a real alpha male, arrogant bastard thing going on that intrigued me.
But by the second chapter he started to become a little wishy washy.
I like that the book was in the male character POV but sometimes the musings to himself were a little cheesy for a guy to say. So when he starts talking about the color of the sunset with way too many adjective for a guy just didn't sit well with me. But I read on because he still intrigued me.
I also felt that his devotion and attraction to Ally happened a little too quick could have waited a few more days before he wanted to fall at her feet. Again I read on, still curious to see where the author was going with the whole story.
By the middle of the book I was really starting to get into it and was rooting for Justice to get the girl.
The sex scenes were hot and well written. The classes he gave to the housewives was also well written, the lesson on oral sex was hysterical.
When I was 25% in was thinking this would be a 3 star review, but I hung in and by 50% I was really liking it especially the friendship that grew between Justice and Ally before anything sexual happened. That was a lot of fun to read.
The twist at the end was definitely an attention grabber.
For me it started off slow but then ended with a twist and a nice HEA.
I would recommend it.
