Review: Taint by SL Jennings

5 Stars

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 thoughts: I read the synopsis during the cover reveal for this book. I was instantly intrigued and knew I was going to be reading it ASAP. 

My first thoughts before reading were, this is either going to be the cheesiest book I have ever read or one of the steamiest. My expectations were pretty high. On release day, I posted in my online book group so I could get a group read going. Several ladies joined in and the general consensus was.....WOW!

This book not only met my expectations, it surpassed them. It was neither the cheesiest book I have ever read or the steamiest. What it was was completely unexpected. Based on the synopsis I assumed I was going to get a pretty erotic novel with a man whore and his merry band of desperate housewives. But what I got was so much more. I don't want to go into detail too much so I will give you this..... 

Is there cheese? Definitely, but it is totally the good kind 
Is there steam?  Justice Drake enough said
Desperate housewives? Of course 
Angst? Yep
Heartbreak? Yes
Happy ending? Mmmm Hmmm
There is even lobster, but you have to read to understand that one. *wink*

Over all this has been one of my favorite reads this year. I am so glad I happened across it on facebook. If I have to make one complaint it would be this (also the biggest complaint with book group). The ending..... it just came to soon. It was just to quick, I wish there had been a bit more to that last part than there was. But it did not detract from the overall book, so it is really a minor complaint. Although, if the author were to write more I would gobble it up without a second thought. *hint hint*
