Overview

Isabel thought her life was on track – she was doing well in college, moving quickly toward her future, and deciding who she wanted to be. Best of all, she’d reunited with Tom, the swim coach she had a secret affair with in high school. But it doesn’t take long for her history – and his – to start catching up with them.

When Isabel goes back to her college life, after spending a blissful summer reuniting with Tom, things take a dangerous turn. Isabel gets swept up in a relationship with a dark, mysterious professor, with whom she begins a covert love affair that could ruin everything she has rebuilt with Tom. Worse, she starts to hear rumors from friends back home - rumors about a teacher having affairs with students. And Tom seems to be at the center of the controversy. Will Isabel’s instincts about what Tom’s been up to during their time apart drive her farther away, or will she forgo her new romance to run to Tom’s defense?

Editorial Reviews

RT Reviews - Jaime A. Geraldi
"All of the things that are related to an extramarital affair, distrust, dishonesty and unabiding love ransack this novel with full force. Readers will swell with emotions that have never surfaced before until experiencing Tainted Love. Marquez is a genius when it comes to capturing the exact essence of this sweet, little thing called love."
Author of 'Forever Me' - Thomas Amo
"Once again Márquez has done it with book two of the Sweetest Taboo Series. The subject matter is a minefield of emotions."

    I couldn’t stop reading this book! There was a lot of back and forth of emotions I had to deal with when reading though.
    Number 1 – Isabel’s “thoughts” were so irrational. Most of her decisions made me want to throw the book at times. Other times I could understand her “rational” thinking due to her previous involvements.
    Number 2 – Tom’s inability to walk away when he could. The heartache he must have went through was something that we didn’t go in depth on, but I could only imagine his ever though, or well-being.
    Number 3 – How could anyone ever think this is okay!? There is so much about this book that makes me cringe. I guess being a parent sheds a light in a whole other angle.
    On another hand, I loved the storyline. I read this book before the first one, and I picked up right where it left off. I guess this book could be a stand-alone because I sure got the “jiffs” of the idea going on. I absolutely loved the flow of the words Eva put into every word. It was really captivating. Here I am sitting here right before bed already wanting to know about the next book, the cliffhanger off this book will drive me bonkers! haha!!
