Product Description

From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Shanora Williams comes a steamy, forbidden standalone novel about a college woman who helplessly falls for her best friend's father.


Dear Mr. Black,

I know you were hurting. I heard your cries. I wished over and over again that I could make it better, but as you stated I was too inexperienced; too good for someone as bad as you.
Perhaps you were right, but it didn’t matter because what I did know was that I loved the way you felt—loved the way you smelled. I loved how hard you got for me, and when you called me your Little Knight.
I can still remember that day in the park, when you held me close and kissed me deep. How you effortlessly made me cry your name on top of sweet smelling grass, making me feel like the only girl in the world. I loved how you looked at me, how you spoke to me.
I had been madly in love with you ever since I was twelve years old, but I shouldn’t have been.
Isabelle would have hated it—my best friend. I couldn’t afford to lose her. Besides, you two had already lost enough. Losing Mrs. Black was the epitome.

It’s Chloe Knight.
I wanted to be there for you no matter what, but Isabelle needed me too.
And she would have hated me if she ever found out I was sleeping with her father.

** Tainted Black is a forbidden love-story about a girl who helplessly falls for her best friend’s father. After a tragic accident ends the life of Theo Black’s wife, he turns to the one person he has always found interesting.
Chloe Knight, the girl from across the street, his daughter’s best friend, and a person that is considered completely off limits for him. **

I know this book came with warnings, but come on. There should have been a warning that the ending would not have a HEA.
This book had everything that draws me in, as I love the forbidden element and the struggles the characters go through because of their tragically deep feelings for each other. Life and love is not easy, and very rarely, is there a story without some form of heartache. But seriously, the ending was hideous, and totally took from the rest of the book. I was mesmerised by these characters, and could not put my kindle down. I just felt like crying at the end, and not because of the happy ending. To have Theo and Chloe endure so much and have to hide their love from the rest of the world, they deserved their lives to be spent together. I am not naive in thinking that life and love is all sugar and sweet, but it was tragic that the book ended the way it did. I totally love the work this author delivers, but feel that I just cannot give it anymore than 2 stars. The book was getting a 5 star rating until I got to about 95%. Just did not see how it would pan out until then. Just devastated that their story had this conclusion. BUT, my opinion should not determine whether others decide not to read the book. I strongly encourage others to read the book and decide for themselves, as this author deserves that.

I love taboo stories and this one has been sitting on my kindle since February this year. Loved the blurb which drew me straight in and couldn't wait to start.
The start of the book was really good and then it sagged a bit in the middle and I could feel myself getting slightly bored but I ALWAYS persevere with a book and I'm glad because about 62% of the way in this book got so much better.
Basically Chloe has fallen for her best friends father, she has been infatuated since the first time she laid eyes on him when she was 12 years old, if that wasn't bad enough as the years go by and she is now older Mr Black is feeling all sorts of naughty things for Chloe too, but with 20 year age gap, a daughter her age as well and being happily married Mr Black shows some much needed restraint. That is until a tragedy befalls the family and every notion of normal comes to a grinding halt and lives are changed forever.
I didn't particularly like Chloe very much, but Mr Black I loved , I so warmed to his character and I'm always drawn to the "bad" guy and he never disappointed me. Secondary characters are really in the back ground and we don't get too much interaction with them, this is all about Chloe and Mr Black.
There is plenty of sex involved as you would imagine and some of it is extremely hot and erotic - no complaints from me, but I feel there should have maybe been that feeling of love a little more that everyone was spouting about and not just the sex which sometimes and I can't believe I'm saying this, over shadowed the story in parts.
All in all a good read and I will be reading Untainted which is a follow on I believe !!!

Wow, this book held me captive from the moment I read the blurb, it takes you on such an emotional rollercoaster.

As per the warnings this book may not be for everyone, I thought it was written amazingly well and Mr Black did not come across as a perverted older man, holy hell just the total opposite.

Chloe is new to the neighbourhood, he family has moved around for her father’s work, sitting in her room one day she sees new neighbours move in across the road… Meet the Blacks.. Chloe became fast friends with Izzy Black, same age, same interests and the bond they shared was more of a sibling bond. Chloe was taken by the handsome Mr Black from the moment she saw him sitting on the motor bike he road into town on.
When tragedy struck the Black family years later, Chloe was there to support them, their lives had been turned upside down and what was about to go down between Chloe and Mr Black was about to change it all.

Shanora has given us a book full of love, passion and heartache. Throw in a few twists and turns and an ending I wasn’t expecting…

Would defiantly recommend this book.
