Tainted Bodies Book One:
Review for Tainted Bodies 5 Stars.
Characters were well rounded everyday people. I loved this. I love the feeling you get when you read a book and you can relate to the characters.
In this book we meet Kate Jackson who is working in a furniture store. She seems to have the same morning routine that includes stoping into the corner coffee shop daily on her way to work.
One morning she meets Derrick Kane, at the coffee shop, when he uses this cheesey type of pick up skit with her.
As the book goes on we learn more about Kate's past and events from her childhood. And all the things she has had to overcome. We also learn why Derrick has commitment issues.
Together they help each other figure things out. But before they can get to that point certain tramatizing events happen. While these events take place I found myself wanting to slap Kate for choices she made. (Over time she fixes those choices.) And Derrick left me wanting to karate chop him in the throat for walking out in her time of need.
When the end came I was shocked. I was left wanting more. Needing more. I want answers. I can't wait until the next book comes out. Hopefully some of those answer will be in that book and I won't have to completely wait for book three. 
The suspense of who did this is eating me alive!
Tainted Pictures Book Two:
I was a Beta reader for Tainted Pictures the second book in The Photographer Trilogy.
I loved Tainted Bodies. But Tainted Picures goes more in depth on the search for the person who attacked Kate. We learn more on how Kate is picking up the pieces to her life and moving on. She will not be a victim. She will stand tall. Or will she?
Then we have Derrick. The boyfriend we all loved to hate in book one. This time around he is a stand up guy. He is there for Kate to love and support her. To protect her. But can he keep his promises?
The suspense in this book draws you in more. It leads you to think it's one person, and then another. It keeps you guess right up to the end. Literally.

***Remember this book is only two out of three so there is a cliffhanger ending. Let's just hope we don't have to wait very long for the next book!
Tainted Bodies Book One:

Intractable Souls Cover

Title: Intractable Souls

Author: Tricia Daniels

Release Date: October 17, 2013

Genre: Erotic Romance


It’s been years since brilliant IT consultant Olivia James, fell for a man who had a deeply hidden compulsion to violence and control. Left healing physically and emotionally, she became a shadow of the confident woman she used to be. That is, until she meets Ethan O’Connell, a man who makes her burn with a powerful desire. Haunted by fear and insecurity, she desperately tries to resist him, doing all the right things to protect her heart, but she is betrayed by her desires and her attraction to confident men. With stubborn perseverance, he ignores her attempts to push him away, leaving her wanting, desiring his love, needing it to feel alive and whole.

Ethan O’Connell is extremely successful in his businesses, with a seriously sexy Irish accent and a lethal kind of flare and charm. More than any one man should ever possess. Ethan knew, from the very first moment that he saw her that she is meant to be his. Used to getting the things he wants, he is determined to have her and struggles to control his Irish temper, the reason for his own troubled past. Olivia James is the woman that makes him want more, the kind of girl that would make any man think about forever. Afraid that he can’t live without her and unwilling to lose her, he hides his secrets and ignores his dark desires and fantasies of control.

Eccentric Psychic, Eva Storm is drawn to the energy around them. She knows that they are soul mates bound by past lives and helps the universe steer them together. Ethan is hesitant to believe at first, but there are things he can’t ignore. Things he couldn’t possibly know, but does. Neither of them can deny the dreams and memories that they both share, but Olivia is too afraid to believe and not willing to trust her heart.

Convinced that she is “THE ONLY ONE” for him, Ethan refuses to walk away, vowing that he will never give up on her, even if it means he has to fight hard enough for both of them. Can he control his temper and his needs in order to keep her in his life? Can she heal her past wounds and let him in? Like no other woman in his life, Olivia challenges him with her strong will and sharp sense of humor, making him wonder if she could ever become a willing captive of his dominance. Ethan hopes with all his heart that she will become equally addicted to his love, and a sneaky suspicion that falling in love with Olivia James is about to bring on a shift in the balance of power in his world.


Where to start? This book was jammed pack with emotions and was one hell of a roller coaster ride. Although it was one roller coaster ride that was great and I didn't want it to end. I am highly anticipating the second book already.

The story is based on Olivia and IT consultant and Ethan an successful established business man.

Lets start with Olivia.
At times I found myself wanting to have a love hate relationship with Olivia and how stubborn she could be. I do fully understand where she is coming from and her reason for being so timid and reserved. But wow she really does have a mind of her own.

Did I mention Ethan is based on an smoking hot Irish man, with a sexy accent to go with it? My main problem with Ethan is he was always used to getting his way, so to be told no, or someone didn't agree I felt myself feeling like I was dealing with the tantrums of my toddler. I really do think it's possible I had a love hate relationship with both main characters in this book.

The two main character had their own love hate relationship going on at times. Along with secrets. Secrets never make a good relationship, it's always better to come clean. This book kept me very intrigued and I felt like I never knew what was going to happen in the next chapter.

I did feel like the author made all the characters  believable and I felt I could connect with each and every one of them. Each character had a personality all of their own that was well wrote out and defined.  All the relationships were well thought out and all made sense.

Now to the ending.......

It left me wanting more. And by more I mean now! I need answers. I need to know what is going to happen.

I would highly suggest to anyone who loves books based on two great main characters, that is well written and thought out with a great developed plot to pick up this book.

Her bonus truth is:
When I write, I can't write scenes out of order. It drives me insane. I have to be driven to that point in order to express the characters' emotions to my full capacity. It's not organic to me.
Chasing the Wild Sparks  (Book 1) 
Book 1:
What would you do if the love of your life doesn’t want the same life you do? Hadley Beckett has failed in not only her career, but as a daughter, friend, and girlfriend.
Hadley’s longtime boyfriend, Finn Wilder, who is Richmond, Virginia’s local daredevil and favorite sportscaster, isn’t afraid of anything…except for LASIK surgery, dancing, marriage, and kids—the last two being what Hadley desperately wants with him. Finn leads a very public life; however, he leaves Hadley in the dark about most of it. Despite his public persona, Finn is viciously protective of his private life. Excluding their families, his best friend and Hadley’s friends, nobody knows he has been dating her for three years. Finn loves Hadley and he knows she wants to get married. Nevertheless, he has his own reasons for not wanting to marry her. Fearing at 33 that she will soon be too old to have kids, Hadley wants Finn to change his mind and marry her, yet her insecurities about his seemingly charismatic personality and his constant rebuffs have her questioning her aspirations. With conflicting advice from her friends, Hadley concludes she should take things into her own hands. Would he change his mind then? Finn pressures Hadley into moving in with him, but being traditional, she wants to be married first and she wants to stick to her beliefs, just as he clings to his own. Finn has tolerated Hadley’s stubbornness long enough and he’s reaching his breaking point. Finn Wilder has his own story to tell. 
Daring the Wild Sparks (Book 2)
Book 2:
In the follow up to “Chasing the Wild Sparks,” Hadley Beckett’s quest for wedded bliss perseveres…
What would you do if the love of your life were closer to making your dreams come true? Riding high in her relationship with her sportscaster/local daredevil boyfriend, Finn Wilder, Hadley Beckett makes plans concerning her future with Finn. Big plans. Spending time with Finn at his parents’ house for Easter, Hadley can’t wait to share some of her ideas with him, hoping he will go along. She knows she has an uphill climb ahead of her, but she’s optimistic that after what they recently went through, Finn will be receptive to what she has to say. Infamously anti-marriage, Finn promised Hadley he’d consider taking her to the altar if she gives him more time. Diving headfirst and with encouragement from her best friend Morgan, Hadley devises a backup plan if Finn can’t make a decision soon. However, her other close friend, Rod, disagrees with Morgan’s advice, partly to just oppose her in spite, but also having actual valid points of his own. Feeling conflicted, Hadley takes both of their suggestions and blends them together, formulating her own way to handle Finn. On the other hand, unbeknownst to Hadley, Finn has plans of his own as well. Hadley is determined to succeed, yet is she unwittingly destined to fail?

Crazy Maybe

A.D. Justice

Released 1/20/14


Andi Stone is a strong, smart and independent woman, thanks to the help of a famous boxing trainer, Mack, and his protégé, Shane, who have respectively been like a father and brother to her. But that wasn't always the case. Andi never knew what a “normal” life was like. Having been raised in foster care from the age of six after the death of her parents, Andi became emancipated at 16 after an especially horrible incident forced her into a psychiatric hospital.

Luke Woods, the family black sheep and street-brawler, is determined to be a successful professional boxer despite his family’s protests. He needs Andi’s help to get there. The wedge between him and his family over his past relationship issues and career choices is not easily overcome. Luke must learn to face the past mistakes, fears and demons that constantly plague him.

Fireworks and passions quickly ignite between Andi and Luke in the midst of the chaos that surrounds and threatens them. She never revealed the secrets and lies that have plagued her, but when she publicly inherits her family fortune, the living, breathing past comes back to torment her and threaten all that she holds dear. For the first time in her life, Andi must learn to rely on someone else to love and protect her or risk losing the man she loves.

Sometimes love isn’t enough. Sometimes it’s all you need.

“Some say it should come easy if it's real love but that's just not true.  Love is never easy - love hurts sometimes.  It causes insecurities and jealousies.  Relationships take work - love takes work.  And happiness requires forgiving others.  I forgive you. ”

Claiming Carter (The Carter Series)
By: W.S. Greer
Release Date: January 22, 2014
Lily Hayes is a beautiful 3rd grade teacher who enjoys her job very much, and has an amazing best friend who keeps her entertained. The only problem in Lily's life is that she always dates lame, boring, passionless men. No one has ever brought her any adventure. No one gives her excitement, and after being cheated on by her last boyfriend, Lily is ready for a change.
A change is exactly what she finds when she meets Kelvin Carter Jr. Kelvin is everything Lily wants in a man: sexy, passionate, spontaneous, attractive, powerful, and the best sex she has ever had. He is perfect. But perfection comes with a price. Kelvin may be exactly what Lily is looking for, but he is also a branch on a Chicago mob's family tree and the son of a notorious mob boss.
When the couple commences a heart-pounding, overwhelmingly sensual relationship, Lily must decide what she desires more; love and satisfaction, or her own safety.


Claiming Carter. Plot: 4   Characters: 5   Overall: 4.5 Stars

I couldn't wait to tear into this book. I loved the description and it overall sounded like a book I would enjoy.
The first three chapters I struggled to really get into the story line. I felt like it was more of a "script" then a story in a book. After I pushed past that point I become to really enjoy the characters and book itself.
This story takes place in the inner city of Chicago.
While most "Erotic-Romance" type books are written for one point of view and usually it's from the leading lady, Claiming Carter came through from several points of view while still working together to tell one story. This one was one the aspects I really enjoyed was getting to imagine multiple points of view in my mind. They all fit together like a puzzle and really worked.

Let's talk about the characters.
We had Lilly who is a 22 year old 3rd grade teacher who has the worse luck with men. She caught her last boyfriend with his private parts where they didn't belong. And a list of men behind that who couldn't satisfy her with the orgasms that she craved. Lilly;s sidekick Lexy is loud and always lets her opinions be heard. She is married and now that Lilly has come to know Kelvin she is living vicariously through Lilly's details of everything that happens.

And then there was Kelvin Carter Jr. also 22 who we come to know as a "business man" who dresses well, drives an incredible ride, lives rent free in a penthouse. Oh and did I mention sexy as ever? Truth be told he is also the son of a mob boss.
All of the characters had well written personalities that worked well for each of them. They were well rounded and none fell flat. They were written as you could picture everyday people, even with Kelvins over the top suits and cars, we could still visualize the person inside.

Overall it told a great story as a big picture looking back. While I was reading it I did find parts I felt were rushed and could of went in to more details, while other parts were drawn out. It was a good read after the first couple chapters and I did enjoy several of the scenes and characters. Would I tell others to read this? Yes. I believe the plot was great and well thought out and it is a good book.

With stating that I can't wait for the second book to come out. I want to know what is going to happen and how the story will progress. I am one who usually finds myself liking the second book better then the first, simply because we already know the characters well so we can skip over that part and just enjoy the story itself.


“But everyone is watching,” I said, giving myself one last excuse, even though I knew it was bullshit.

“Don’t worry about them,” Kelvin said. “I got you.”
As he spoke the words, I felt my last bit of inhibition melt away. Kelvin had pulled me closer, but it was me who lunged forward and placed my mouth on his. I closed my eyes and felt his tongue slip into my mouth, as his full, plump lips pressed aggressively against mine. He lifted his head slightly as we kissed and I could feel myself getting hotter every second that we were connected. It was as if my body had been lifted off of the ground and I was floating in midair as he continued to press my body firmly against his.
I knew the entire playground was probably watching, but it didn’t matter to me. I didn’t care who was watching, I didn’t want it to end. He had such strength and control as he kissed me and all I wanted was to give into his will. But, as quickly as the rush had come, I came slowly crashing back to Earth as he pulled away and I opened my eyes. His face was still only inches from mine and I stared into his deep, dark brown eyes as he stared into mine.
“That was definitely worth the wait,” Kelvin said as he let me go and I stumbled backwards. I couldn’t speak. I only stared at him, thinking about all the things I wanted him to do to me. “I think I can rest a little bit easier now,” he said.
