#Review: TAINT by S.L. Jennings

May 21, 2014 Review 3

taintTaint by S.L. Jennings


Right now, you’re probably asking yourself two things:
Who am I?
And, what the hell are you doing here? 

Let’s start with the most obvious question, shall we? 

You’re here, ladies, because you can’t f*ck.

Oh, stop it. Don’t cringe. No one under the age of 80 clutches their pearls. 
You might as well get used to it, because for the next six weeks, you’re going to hear that word a lot. And you’re going to say it a lot. 
Go ahead, try it out on your tongue. 
F*ck. F***ck.

Ok, good. Now where were we?

If you enrolled yourself in this program then you are wholly aware that you’re a lousy lay. Good for you. Admitting it is half the battle.

For those of you that have been sent here by your husband or significant other, dry your tears and get over it. You’ve been given a gift, ladies. The gift of mind-blowing, wall-climbing, multiple-orgasm-inducing sex. You have the opportunity to f*ck like a porn star. And I guarantee, you will when I’m done with you.

And who am I?

Well, for the next six weeks, I will be your lover, your teacher, your best friend, and your worst enemy. Your every-f*cking-thing. I’m the one who is going to save your relationship and your sex life.

I am Justice Drake. 
And I turn housewives into whores. 

Now…who’s first?


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Taint follows Justice Drake as he asshole’s his way through life. And by life, I mean his job. Because he’s one of those guys who lives and breathes work and money. He’s cold, and calculated. Until he meets a fiesty red head named Ally who loves Friends and ice cream (rocky road or mint chocolate chip.) There’s just one problem, Ally is actually his client, and married. Justice Drake doesn’t have a normal job, he teaches women how to be whores for their cheating husbands.

Really the plot line is a lot more complicated than that, but if I told you everything the spoiler freaks would come out and tie me up.

Let’s start with the beginning. I usually never review the cover or the blurb of a book. But for this book I have too. I have NEVER EVER in my entire life found a book that has a cover AND a blurb this fucking perfect. *Hands S.L. Jennings my money for the every book she has ever written or ever will write* Why? How can a cover and a blurb make me a forever fan. Well they can’t. Not on first glance, but once I read the book, which I did very quickly, I knew without a doubt that Jennings is a mad genius. She knows how to sell a book, and how to hook a reader. Lot’s of books have good blurbs, and gorgeous covers, but not all of them can back those two key elements up. THIS BOOK DOES!

Justice Drake is like so many of the alpha male leads out there, but he’s also unlike them in some very important ways. He’s not at all abusive toward women. Not in the least bit. No red flags waved while I was reading him. Yes, he is an unapologetic asshole. But he’s a nice asshole?
He’s Alpha to the max, but in a believable way. He’s bluntly honest about the way men think. He’s incredibly shallow, but complex. Because it turns out he has those nasty things called ‘the feels’. *ewegetthemoffofme*

At first I thought Ally was a ‘Bella Swan’ a blank slate that the reader could impose themselves upon, but I was wrong so wrong. She does actually have a backbone, and one hell of sense of humor. I laughed a lot throughout the book.

The writing was great! I try very hard to NOT be one of those readers who picks everything apart, and frowns at every weird sentence or typo. THANKFULLY I didn’t have to work very hard to turn that off in this book. (Why is it so easy to edit other people’s work and not my own? Because I ALWAY miss my own typos!)

TAINT is exactly the book that I wanted it to be. If S.L. Jennings ever writes in this world again, I will be happy to jump right back into this world.
