Tainted by Amanda Cowen
Publication date: June 22nd 2018
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Rhys Wyatt is as arrogant as he is beautiful, and Ivy Bishop has been infatuated with him forever. The night Ivy makes her move, it ends horribly, leaving her utterly heartbroken.
Three years later, Ivy is dating Blaine Wyatt; Rhys’s loving and tender younger brother. With Rhys and their past somewhat out of her mind, everything about her relationship with Blaine seems perfect. But when Blaine leaves Ivy alone all summer; neither of them anticipated Rhys to return, or him and Ivy to be stuck living under the same roof…
Rhys never believed Ivy would be all grown up and everything he’s ever wanted – gorgeous, perfectly alluring, and an infuriatingly tempting beauty he has to keep his hands off of. But the more they try to resist each other, the more intense their urges become, until one night changes everything, and Wyatt brothers will never be the same.
I had high hopes for this book. The blurb pulled me in as soon as I read it. I liked the whole concept but I kept having this feeling while reading that i need something more.
Don’t get me wrong i liked this book. Rhys with his intense eyes and smoldering looks keeping his feelings for Ivy a secret for 4 years. I think my main problem with this story was Ivy. I didn’t like how she choose Blain because he was safe. Since when is love safe??? 😛 But she redeemed herself with her departure for me. She and Rhys both need time to grow up and finally find a way back to each other.
Overall this story was an OK read. Not my favorite but definitely not my last because I see a lot of potential for me to start loving this author. So this time is a -4* for me.
