Taint – S.L Jennings [kindle edition]

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?

TAINT

I don’t know where to start. Okay, how about his, I inhaled this book. I started late yesterday and just couldn’t put the damn thing down.

I’ll be honest I picked it up because I just loved the guy on the cover. Complete lust at first sight. Then I read the synopsis, so of course I just knew that this was going to be on my up coming reading list, sooner rather than later.

Justice Drake turns housewives into whores. His approach is with complete disconnect which makes the character work. I would have liked to have known more as to why he was doing what he was doing, but this was in all honesty a quick read so I could see the need to glaze over certain aspects, so as to not drag this story out too much. It would have been fine in my opinion if it had been. I would have loved to understand his character a little more.

The story overall works, but it’s missing something critical. Sex. Here is a guy where sex is his business. I would like to have had more of that in the book. Don’t get me wrong, it’s there and when it’s there. It’s good enough. But the story is set up for a world of possibilities, but there are times where opportunities are presented and you’re left wondering why they aren’t taken. I don’t believe that it takes away from how good the story is. Because it really is a good story, it just needs a little more. More time to do character development. More time to understand why these characters have ended up where they are. And yes, more hot steamy sex.

Now I feel like I’ve been completely negative towards this book, but that’s not really how I feel. This has some really great nuggets. Justice Drake imparts his wisdom in some of the most beautiful tactless ways;

“Feed the beast, ladies, and it’ll come to you every time it’s hungry. Make your man feel like he’s the biggest, baddest motherfucker on earth, inside and outside of the bedroom, and he’ll adore you.”

Feed the beast… I’ve tried this. It works.

Men are like children. They constantly need positive reinforcement. And if they don’t get that, they settle for negative reinforcement.

No, we should not generalize men. It’s not fair. This statement could apply to women just as much men. I just find it amusing, because I tend to find that many times, it’s true.

Justice isn’t always a complete dick either, he has some truly sweet moments too.

“I think you’re sexy as fuck, Ally,” I whisper, my breath tempting the skin right below her ear. “You just don’t know it yet.”

He doesn’t disappoint. Or rather S.L Jennings doesn’t disappoint… though you may be left wondering, could there have been more?

Oh and if anyone is interested that mighty fine gentleman on the front cover is Michael Thurston. He has an Instagram account: http://instagram.com/mikethurston and of course I follow him.
