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.
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).
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.
This is the first book in The Photographer Trilogy by Sarah Robinson. The main character, Kate Jackson, lives alone in Washington, DC and works for her "uncle" Lenny. He is a childhood friend of her father. The story begins with Kate walking up to a podium to give a speech to law enforcement. This hints that the story is going to be bigger than we know.
Kate has suffered unimaginable trauma when she was 6 years old. Her mother used this for attention and her father calls her a liar. This shaped how she views life, and how not to trust that anyone will have your back when things go wrong. Her closest trusted family to her is her little sister Annie. Annie lives in New York City. They are very close because when they were young, their mother left them and their father turned to booze and died when Kate was in middle school. Annie is the only true family Kate has left.
She meets a man named Derrick one day at a coffee shop and soon they are dating. Derrick has a lot of baggage just like Kate does. Slowly we learn what all is holding him back from getting serious with Kate. After a few months, they go on vacation to a bed and breakfast in Delaware. Things go really well and her life is looking good. When they return, really horrible things happen to Kate and she has trouble dealing with the aftermath. She struggles to do the right things and just when she is at her lowest point, Derrick does something bad. How she reacts and deals with all of this is what the story is about.
I liked the different direction this story moves in. It is a breath of fresh air, completely different then other books of the same genre. This book has mystery, suspense, romance, intrigue. It is the whole package. I am looking forward to seeing how this trilogy plays out, and if you like a deeper story, but don't want gritty, this is a good place to start. Although the subject matter could be graphic, Sarah has written this as to not be so in your face like some books. I found myself getting frustrated with the characters, which for me is a good thing. When you start looking at the characters as if they are real, then the author has done a wonderful job of bringing them to life. This is a very interesting start to a very interesting trilogy, and I for one, won't miss a page. Check it out for yourself!
