Right now, you’re probably asking yourself two things:
Who am I?
And, what the hell are you doing here?

Let’s start with the most obvious question, shall we?

You’re here, ladies, because you can’t f*ck.

Oh, stop it. Don’t cringe. No one under the age of 80 clutches their pearls.
You might as well get used to it, because for the next six weeks, you’re going to hear that word a lot. And you’re going to say it a lot.
Go ahead, try it out on your tongue.
F*ck. F***ck.

Ok, good. Now where were we?

If you enrolled yourself in this program then you are wholly aware that you’re a lousy lay. Good for you. Admitting it is half the battle.

For those of you that have been sent here by your husband or significant other, dry your tears and get over it. You’ve been given a gift, ladies. The gift of mind-blowing, wall-climbing, multiple-orgasm-inducing sex. You have the opportunity to f*ck like a porn star. And I guarantee, you will when I’m done with you.

And who am I?

Well, for the next six weeks, I will be your lover, your teacher, your best friend, and your worst enemy. Your every-f*cking-thing. I’m the one who is going to save your relationship and your sex life.

I am Justice Drake.
And I turn housewives into whores.

Now…who’s first?


Taint is a typical romance novel, it stars an alpha male, and an average woman. Allison is your typical romance heroine, who is strong but weak and is trying to make the best of a terrible situation. And Justice is a manwhore who may have just found the one thing that can redeem him.

I did enjoy this book. However, it is the same typical standard romance fare, and currently I’m craving something a little different in that department. I want something that isn’t cliche, and while I greatly enjoyed Allison and Justice they were the typical characters found in a romance novel. I will say that there weren’t gaping plotholes, and the final reveal I really didn’t see coming. It’s for that reason that I give it the full 3 stars I give romance novels. If you are looking for a fun, sexy read then this is the book for you.


3/5 – Worth Reading
