Taint by S.L. Jennings: Blog Tour Review & Giveaway


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?

Review by Michelle:

First there's the cover. Yowza! Then there's the blurb. Yes, please! And finally there's the story and I was page turning like a woman obsessed. Taint by S.L. Jennings certainly grabs your attention with its stunning cover but the premise and the perspective alone are enough to keep you hooked while the air of mystery surrounding all things Justice Drake and the beautiful and poetic writing had me completely enraptured.

I cannot say this enough. I love a male POV! Justice Drake's perspective was nothing short of perfection. Although there seems to be a growing trend toward the male viewpoint, it can still be fairly hard to find authors that totally nail it. S.L. Jennings has been added to my short list of authors that I feel really and truly understand and convey the male point of view. Justice Drake is brutally and unapologetically honest. He thinks like a guy, he talks like a guy, he loves like a guy. It is fascinating to see things the way that he does and liberating to experience the way he speaks his mind with such abandon.

If there was ever a question as to whether this book is hot or not, let me put that to rest right now and just say that it is absolutely smokin'. Justice's hotness on its own was almost too much to handle but when combined with his blazing chemistry with Ally, the intense yearning they have for one another, and the taboo that a possible relationship between the two represents it made for a smoldering story just begging for ignition.

Surprisingly there were also more than a few humorous and amusing moments that helped to lighten the overall serious tone of the story. The easy friendship and connection that Justice found in Ally was heartwarming and brought out a side of Justice that was endearing and made him more human. Ally is adorably cute, sweet, goofy, clumsy, and just plain REAL. If there was ever a more likable character I certainly can't name her.

After reading the blurb there was just no way that I was not reading this book. There turned out to be even more going on with this story than I expected. It ran much deeper than anticipated, it was action packed, and there was never a dull moment. In fact there were revelations right up until the very end and the last 10% was totally jaw dropping and left me craving more.

Taint is raw and in your face yet soft and sweet. It is off-the-charts hot but also strikingly lyrical. This is the first S.L. Jennings book that I have had the pleasure of reading thus far but I aim to change that as soon as possible and can see a great many more in the very near future.
