From the Author

Those with triggers for sexual abuse or violence should take care of themselves while reading this book. Please note that scenes around that topic are done for a purpose and handled delicately, they are not just included for some thrill or cheap aspect. 
 
This book, and the rest in this series, is a romance, but they all have an underlying story of female empowerment and strength as well. The world might be tainted, but we don't have to be.

I typically do not read crime/romance books but I did enjoy this one.

Kate Johnson is living a normal life, with little to no excitement. She has a past that still troubles her some but does a great job at hiding it. When she goes to her normal coffee spot Derrick Kane enters her life and stirs up some excitement.

Derrick is hot, fun, and a little mysterious. He too has a troubled past. You learn a little bit about his past and it gives you a understanding of why he the way he is at times.

Kate and Derrick date for a while and you can tell by the way they are around each other they are in love but Derricks past gets in the way and it leaves Kate feeling a little insecure about their relationship at times. She is in love with him and determined she won't let it get in the way of their relationship.

After an amazing weekend together the two go back home and a horrific crime takes place involving Kate. She must now help the police catch this sick and twisted criminal while trying to hold her relationship with Derrick together.

The book started off a little slow for me but once it got going it sucked me right in. I ended up finishing in one sitting. Holy hell the reaction from Derrick about the crime just blew my mind. I won't say exactly how I feel because I don't want to ruin it for anyone. It does have a cliffhanger and I can't wait to find out what happens next.

This book is full of so many emotions. It draws you in and makes you feel like you are a part of the story. I keep trying to think of how hard it would be to be in her shoes. The relationship with Derrick is great even though it seems he needs to deal with some of his own issues. Can't wait for the next book!

At 62% done I was, OMG! I won't spoil it for others but I'm just so frustrated, angry, and appalled! Aaaggghhhh! So far the story is amazing. I got sucked right in and only stopped reading because my eyelids did not want to cooperate with my want to read.

Now that I have completed the book, this book was an unexpected surprise. The story engaged me right away! I haven't read a Crime Romance in awhile that has kept my attention when I had the time to read. Not the story with Tainted Bodies! I even took it with me to the CCD class I teach because I was at 92% and couldn't stand not being able to just finish it.

I felt like a basket case with the myriad of emotions I felt while reading this. I fell in love with Kate & Derrick's romance. I cried with what happened to Kate and the way Derrick treated her after. I was "so frustrated, angry, & appalled with Derrick!

I'm glad I don't have to wait too long for the next installment in the trilogy, Tainted Pictures (April 18,2014).

This was a good book that I enjoyed and read in one sitting. Kate is a strong, dependable woman. She is busy living her life when she meets Derrick, a carefree and happy guy. As they begin to fall in love you are introduced to many characters that keep you thinking. My mind didn't stop turning, every time one them were mentioned I was thinking, what are they gonna do. Derrick and Kate have far from a happy love story, they each have issues that they need to deal with before I think they can give into each other fully. I'm thinking they have some of the same issues. What happens to Kate is a horrible thing and just when she needs Derrick the most will he be there for her? I can't wait to start reading Tainted Pictures and find out what happens with their relationship. Also I'd can't wait to see if they catch the person responsible for hurting Kate.

I really enjoyed reading this. Even though I gave it a 4. I did enjoy Kate and Derrik's relationship. 10 cool points for Derrik when they met. I would totally fall for that. Even though he did dissapointed me a bit. Derrik was reluctant to lable what they had. He truly loved her in his own way.
When the unthinkable happens, Kate is left alone and unsure of Derrik's love for her.
I felt Kate moved on a bit too fast and was supressing her true feelings.
I cant wait to see how the events unfold and Derrik redeems himself of his actions.
Definitely a good start.
Happy Reading!

I almost didn't read this book because I knew of the material that was written in it, but I'm so glad that I did. Having lived through a similar experience as the main character in the book I struggle to read about it and not because I've lived it, but because I think authors sometimes romanticize it. Sarah Robinson did not do that. Her characters were very realistic. The pain they went through felt to me like real life pain. I found myself shaking my head and almost fist pumping the air in happiness that true facts were put into the book. It wasn't filled with fluff to work around the harshness of what happened. Sarah came right at you with what happened.

Yes the book started out with the romance. She let you get to know Kate and Derrick, but I loved that. I am a detail oriented reader. I want the books I read to take me into the book just like I'm there where the author was when they envisioned it. This book did that for me. There were laugh out loud parts, parts where you wanted to slap them (sorry Derrick, but what you did was plain stupid), awwww moments, horrible moments that made you cringe and give you nightmares because they were written so well and the parts that just made you smile in this book.

The supporting characters were great too. My favorite being Kate's sister Annie. We all have a sister, cousin friend, who is like Annie. Her spunk and fire adds a great dynamic to the story and progression of the book.

Can't wait for book two because the ending was an OMG--seriously left me hanging moment...
