I truly have no idea where to begin this review. I’m a little all over the place because of this book. I don’t know where to begin.
Gillian Jones is an author who’s books push the boundaries and tackles subjects that we don’t usually see. In Tainted by Love, Gillian gives us a story pushes the boundaries to the max.
First and foremost, I have to state that this book doesn’t end traditionally, Gillian tells us this herself.. I’m sure that because of this people might not want to read this book. BUT! And here’s the kicker. This book is so powerful. So emotional. So beautiful. That you simply MUST READ it. The journey, the development, the connection and the message underneath are all done impeccably. I won’t go deep into the storyline in my review. I won’t go into the characters in too much depth. I won’t ruin it. I just won’t. What I will do is explain MY emotion. My feeling in the hope that despite the warning you will give this book a chance.
From the very first page of this book, I developed a connection to Trinity. Her resilience, strength, passion and flare all poured out of this book and into me in the most incredible way. Despite everything she deals with Gillian has made her strong and a fighter and that power makes Trinity one hell of a lead character.
Hendrix. His raw, ruthless outlook on everything drew me to him like a moth to a flame. He’s raw, protective. But light and uplifting. He’s polished and rugged all at the same time. He was amazing. I Loved him.
Despite the underlying issue that is it at the core of this book, Tainted by Love flows. The love story it blossoms is powerful and heartwarming. Emotions are high, and they also run deep inside, infiltrating the heart. These characters, their strength, their friendship, their relationship just builds and builds and builds. I felt them, believed them. Loved them. They affected me in the best way.
Tainted by Love is a journey, through life, a life that isn’t plain sailing and easy. It’s about overcoming, having hope, looking forward, chasing dreams, finding love and keeping it. It follows a different set up and may not end the way everyone wants. But it ended the way the author wanted, it ended in a way true to all the characters. To me, now, the end is perfect. So like I said before, don’t let the warning put you off. Pick up this book, read it, be consumed by it, fall in love with it, but above all else feel and understand it. Like I did. Personally I think it’s Gillian’s best book to date.
