Review: Taint 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 eighty clutches her 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.

Okay, 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 who 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 that 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?

Taint was definitely a page-turner and I thought the premise was unlike any I’ve ever read before. The story is told in Justice’s point of view (sadly his real name isn’t Taint) and I found the behind the scenes drama at his resort a lot of fun to read about.

Justice was a confusing character. He came across as a cocky a-hole at the beginning, but does almost a 180 when Ally comes into the picture. Although I didn’t necessarily want him to continue being jerk, I felt like his transformation was almost too much to believe.

Ally wasn’t a bad character and some of her quirky qualities were endearing. The cheating didn’t rub me the wrong way like other books since infidelity was abound. However, I just didn’t buy into the whole idea that these gold-digging women needed a better sexual education to keep their husbands from straying.

The erotic parts were hot and being inside Justice’s head was fun at times. I liked that the entire book is told from his point of view. Overall, a good read for someone looking for a non-traditional sexy romance.

Rating: 3.5/5 Stars

Thanks to the publisher for a copy of the novel for review!
