Tainted Love: Behind Closed Doors Book 1

Synopsis

For anyone in a relationship, the words ‘we need to talk’ can only mean one thing. In the last twenty-two years, the McKenzies have been through it, survived it, learned by it, and grown stronger from it, because life didn’t stop for breath when they needed it. Amongst the tears and the tragedies, the hopes and happiness, they’ve built something amazing: a happy family, a luxury lifestyle and a booming empire. Don’t they deserve to have it all?

But for the perfect wife, those four sinister words mean something entirely different. They’re a summons into a private world where what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors.

Faith has no doubt in Calvin’s undying love for her. It’s what kept her sane in the darkest hours. If only she could figure out what it is she does wrong… because it’s rapidly becoming apparent their tainted love is running out of time.

The Review

I had to take several breaks while reading Tainted Love by Erin Cawood because it was so bone-chilling honest that it had me quite emotional. Tainted Love goes into the world of spousal abuse and everything that it encompasses from the happy beginning, to the occasional harsh words that eventually turn physical.

Erin Cawood writes in such a manner that it felt as if Faith was sitting right across the table from me telling her story. I wanted to yell at Faith and tell her to get it together and leave but on the other hand I understood her reasoning on why she stayed. Overall, this book boils down to how much does Faith love herself and when does she decide that enough is enough. This was a great first book by Erin Cawood and I look forward to reading more from her!
