***#NerdGirlJulie’s Review***
Tainted Lovers sounds like a romance, but it’s really more of a suspense/thriller. Either way, Sarah Michelle Lynch’s latest book is a good read.

Adrienne and David have a whirlwind romance and rush into marriage. They both have dark pasts that are only partially shared with the other. While the two want to be better people, betrayal and lies eventually lead to heart break.

I felt the beginning half of the story dragged in pace, but this was made up for in the second half of the book which is jam packed with shocking twists and reveals!! I didn’t feel Adrienne and David’s initial attraction or chemistry, and I really did “get” them as a couple early on. As the characters and their relationship developed, I could understand the underlying need and love they felt for one another.

The story culmination is a wild, suspenseful ride, and ends in a perfectly satisfying way. I’ll say no more about Tainted Lovers since that would ruin the thrill of the read!
