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?

TAINTED LOVE by Eva Marquez is a complex,and compelling Women’s fiction/Contemporary/YA Romance. #2 of the “Sweetest Taboo” series,while can be read as a stand alone, I would suggest reading “The Sweetest Taboo” first. “Tainted Love” is the follow up to Tom Stevens and Isabella Cruiz’s story. Four years later,Isabella is in college now and grown into a beautiful young woman. Isabella and Tom had a teacher-student relationship in “The Sweetest Taboo”. A bittersweet love story,where love can easily turn into hate,when lies,rumors,and secrets are revealed. Teacher-student relationships is still taboo. But where once forbidden love was illegal,now it is not for Isabella is of age to follow her heart. Characters grow up,spread their wings and Isabella finds out the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. This reviewer does not condone teacher-student relationships. “Tainted Love” shows how when we are teenagers we have a different outlook on things than when we are older. A controversial,complex,and compelling story with a cliff hanger at the end. “Tainted Love” was written with depth,very emotional,heart wrenching,and pulls the reader into the story. The author also,explained some things from the first book. Beautifully written! Received for an honest review. RATING:4 HEAT RATING: SWEET REVIEWED BY: AprilR, My Book Addiction Reviews
