Product Description

Tainted Bodies is an Amazon Bestseller in Crime, Thrillers, and Romantic Suspense. 

He takes a picture of every woman he kills. A little memento of his favorite moments. 
She takes nothing from anyone. 
Kate Jackson listlessly floats through life with no purpose or direction, only pain and memories. A woman with a haunted past and a desolate future, the only thing she has to cling to is the close relationship with her sister, Annie. Until she meets the charming lawyer, Derrick Kane.
Just when she thinks she might have found the key to learning how to live again, maybe even how to love, The Photographer rips it all away from her with one click of his camera.
Determined to find a way to survive, Kate must choose between pursuing justice, or hiding her problems like she has done her entire life. 
Little did Kate know that death could be the only thing to bring her back to life.
Or that this is just the beginning... 
*Please note that this is the first book in a trilogy and therefore does contain a cliffhanger. 
DISCLAIMER: Due to violent and dark subject matter, this book is intended for readers over the age of 18 years old.

Sarah Robinson’s Tainted Bodies is a Crime Romance, a dark and heavy read that I could not bring myself to put down.

Romance, past traumas, sisterhood, secrets, betrayals and a horrific crime that occurs now—it doesn't seem like it would all fit together into a book that would leave ME wanting more. But it worked together flawlessly. It was real, raw and gritty—full of secrets, lies, mysteries and evasions which lead you up to a cliffhanger and breathlessly waiting for the second book in this series. Yet it also had another side to the book—the budding of a new relationship between Kate and Derrick, the close bond between sisters and the incredible chemistry between Kate and Derrick.

One of the things I liked the most about Sarah’s writing was how utterly flawed and imperfect her characters were. Where usually we all dream about the knight in shining armor who swoops in and saves the day…let’s be honest we don’t see it every day. Derrick has flashes of the charming, dreamy, handsome, romantic man of our dreams and then there is that slightly mysterious, secretive commitment phobe side. Kate is dissatisfied at her job, yet is still there accepting promotions, all the while wishing and dreaming about something different. She is incredibly strong yet at the same time still broken inside. When she meets Derrick, their instantaneous connection starts off a relationship that truly excites Kate. However they are not exactly in the same page.

I have to be honest that Sarah made me rethink how I rate books! Usually I reserve 5 Stars for books that I want to read over and over again. I can’t be certain that I want to curl up with Tainted Bodies again because the material is so heavy, intense and realistic (though I am not ruling it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars I have been "Tainted"! 11 April 2014
By Renee Dyer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I almost didn't read this book because I knew of the material that was written in it, but I'm so glad that I did. Having lived through a similar experience as the main character in the book I struggle to read about it and not because I've lived it, but because I think authors sometimes romanticize it. Sarah Robinson did not do that. Her characters were very realistic. The pain they went through felt to me like real life pain. I found myself shaking my head and almost fist pumping the air in happiness that true facts were put into the book. It wasn't filled with fluff to work around the harshness of what happened. Sarah came right at you with what happened.

Yes the book started out with the romance. She let you get to know Kate and Derrick, but I loved that. I am a detail oriented reader. I want the books I read to take me into the book just like I'm there where the author was when they envisioned it. This book did that for me. There were laugh out loud parts, parts where you wanted to slap them (sorry Derrick, but what you did was plain stupid), awwww moments, horrible moments that made you cringe and give you nightmares because they were written so well and the parts that just made you smile in this book.

The supporting characters were great too. My favorite being Kate's sister Annie. We all have a sister, cousin friend, who is like Annie. Her spunk and fire adds a great dynamic to the story and progression of the book.

Can't wait for book two because the ending was an OMG--seriously left me hanging moment...

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT 31 March 2014
By 7841pop - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition

This is one fascinating book that will have you feeling all kinds of emotions right from the start.

Not my typical read but an amazing different kind that left me reeling and saying WHAT? I was more than pleasantly surprised.

Filled with suspense, drama, secrets, lies, intrigue, love and passion you will be sucked right into the story from the moment you start reading.

Flawless writing, well developed characters and a plot line you will devour all combine into making this one fantastic read. A must read for all who love crime mystery romances heck for all who love romance novels period.

Its the story of Kate and Derrick who meet and start a whirlwind romance but there are major twists and turns ups and downs that will always keep you guessing.

Both have secrets and issues to deal with and how these two navigate thru it all, together and individually is the question. They are one interesting couple. You can feel their chemistry especially in the hot sexy moments they share but is it enough to keep this couple together thru all that will be experienced and revealed?

Secrets and lies fill the pages of this book and the author does a phenomenal job instilling that feeling of trepidation in us, you just know something is wrong, someone is lying and something major is on the horizon. Frantically turning the pages as you sit on the edge of your seat waiting to find out. Only to be left with a brilliant cliffhanger that will have you marking your calendars for the release so you can continue on.

Bravo Sarah on a exceptional story, I can't wait to read more and see how or where this couple end up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! 31 March 2014

I typically do not read crime/romance books but I did enjoy this one.

Kate Johnson is living a normal life, with little to no excitement. She has a past that still troubles her some but does a great job at hiding it. When she goes to her normal coffee spot Derrick Kane enters her life and stirs up some excitement.

Derrick is hot, fun, and a little mysterious. He too has a troubled past. You learn a little bit about his past and it gives you a understanding of why he the way he is at times.

Kate and Derrick date for a while and you can tell by the way they are around each other they are in love but Derricks past gets in the way and it leaves Kate feeling a little insecure about their relationship at times. She is in love with him and determined she won't let it get in the way of their relationship.

After an amazing weekend together the two go back home and a horrific crime takes place involving Kate. She must now help the police catch this sick and twisted criminal while trying to hold her relationship with Derrick together.

The book started off a little slow for me but once it got going it sucked me right in. I ended up finishing in one sitting. Holy hell the reaction from Derrick about the crime just blew my mind. I won't say exactly how I feel because I don't want to ruin it for anyone. It does have a cliffhanger and I can't wait to find out what happens next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow a great first book 15 April 2014
By Tracey P. - Published on

This book is full of so many emotions. It draws you in and makes you feel like you are a part of the story. I keep trying to think of how hard it would be to be in her shoes. The relationship with Derrick is great even though it seems he needs to deal with some of his own issues. Can't wait for the next book!
