Overview

The second installment of the bestselling romantic suspense series, The Photographer Trilogy, returns to thrill readers and leave them on the edge of their seats. The Photographer is back and Kate's in his crosshairs...will she find out who he is in time to save the one person who matters most to her?

The Photographer is back, dropping menacing hints at every turn.
Reminding Kate that he owns her. That he broke her body.
And at the same time, Derrick Kane broke her heart.

The small, quiet life that Kate Jackson had built for herself was over. Pulverized by the twisted workings of a notorious serial killer and the agony of being betrayed by the one man she had trusted her heart to.

She had never loved or given of herself to anyone before, not like she had done with Derrick. She wasn't one to give her trust blindly, yet she had given it to him. And he destroyed her with it. How can she forgive the man she loves when he abandoned her at the exact moment she needed him the most?

Kate is a fighter and refusing to allow a sadistic killer to take everything from her yet again, she delves into the police investigation targeting The Photographer and finally revealing his true identity.

But Kate quickly learns that finding the face behind the mask, doesn't make you safe.
Monsters are only uglier in the light of day.


NOTE: This book is the second in a trilogy and therefore, contains a cliffhanger. The final installment, Untainted, is available now on all major retailers and concludes the story with no questions left unanswered.
DISCLAIMER: Due to violent and dark subject matter, this book is intended for reader 18+ years old.

Editorial Reviews

Summer C.
"Tainted Pictures is the perfect blend of a crime thriller and a romance novel, it definitely has the best of both worlds! The romance aspect of the novel is perfectly intertwined with the crime. This novel is very suspenseful, keeping the reader on the edge of their seat waiting to find out who the killer is and following the clues along with the detectives. The Photographer is the stuff nightmares are made of ... "
Author Groupie
"Derrick is the kind of man that every woman wants!"
Candy F.
"The first book had a lot leading up to the main conflict, then it happening, and dealing with the effects of it afterwards. This book, however, really focused on the case which meant that you were constantly on the edge of your seat."
Jill S.
"One of the true gifts in this book is being able to see the story from several different viewpoints. [Kate & Derrick's] chemistry is just undeniable--sparks fly, as do clothes!"
Clare M.
"Oooohhhh the suspense and stomach clenching! I have read this book TWICE now, you won't be disappointed. Sarah Robinson is a phenomenal writer, building you up and developing the story, investing you in the characters."

     ~~I received this in exchange for my honest opinion~~ This is the second book in the series. This gives you more of what Kate was going through and how she was trying to over come what had happened. She wants things to go back to normal, but at the same time, she just wants to let go.  I cried in this book. This book will give your heartstrings a nice tug. But, there is strength in this book. It also gives you hope. Continue to read this book! You will love it!!

Favorite Quotes: “Maybe two people can be broken on their own, but together they heal each other, they are whole. Kate, I am broken without you in my life.” “Until she had been subjected to some of the worst experiences a human being can go through and felt the emotions so far from happiness that happiness wasn’t even a speck on their horizon, she couldn’t have fully felt real and true happiness. Happiness is the face of someone who loves you.”  “She was beautiful and fierce, but delicate and broken. She loved to fight and fought to love. She took on the demons of the world as if it was nothing, handling herself with dignity at every step.” My Review: The story is building in intensity and is also more emotive. Painful at times, but also quite beautiful to see the personal growth occurring.

Kate has been able to identify someone who she is familiar to from the mug shot book at the police station. She is still terrified of her attacker coming back. She has taken every precaution at home by installing alarms in all her windows and her front door now sports a variety of locks. As Kate and Derrick attempt to start over again, Derrick cannot forgive himself for reacting the way he did to Kate's attack. All he can do is promise to protect Kate and be there to support her. The undercurrent of danger cannot be missed. From clues The Photographer is leaving behind on purpose, we can tell he has not moved on and Kate is very much on his mind. She is the only victim of The Photographer to survive his attack. This must not be sitting well with him. This man is a serial rapist, who tortures his victims and beats them beyond recognition. Only Kate's determination to survive is greater than the hatred The Photographer has for his victims. Again, we have a book here full of mystery and suspense, as well as an emotional love story to steal any tender heart. We are lucky the third and final book in this series is about to be published. At the end of this book, you will be left holding your breath. My heart was galloping and I was holding my breath when I reached the end. Things could not get any worse... I hope Derrick comes through with a strong heart and committed to finding the truth.

OMG This book couldn't get any better! I loooooooove Kate and all of her strength! Never backing down from what the Photographer has done and could have done! Her and Derrek continuing to grow strong. The Characters, the story line, the SUSPENSE.......All so well written!! I love it. Really goes in line with Tainted Bodies and the MAJOR cliff hanger that left me YELLING and wanting "Untainted" immediately! I HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone! You won't regret it. Just make sure to read book 1, Tainted Bodies first! DestinyW #wheresbook3

**I received an advanced copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review** I must say I truly enjoyed this book! It started off a bit slowly with the recaps of things from the previous book but all in all it was a great read. I do love a good mystery and this made me feel like I was watching an episode of Law & Order: SVU lol!! It was captivating and I honestly cannot wait for the conclusion (so write quickly Ms. Robinson). If you read Tainted Bodies then Tainted Pictures is a must read and if you haven't I highly recommend both! Well written and intriguing! 4¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿

Wow this book is equal too if not better than the first book Tainted Bodies and like the first book I couldn't put it down Kate grows and matures a lot in this book as does Derrick. The hunt is now on for Kate's attacker and once the photograph is turned over to the police it turns out Kate's attack wasn't the first and she is in fact the only surviver. I t soon be come apparent that Kate's attacker is stalking her - intend on tormenting her before finally finishing the job. Will the police figure out who the "photographer' is in time or will Kate become this serial killer's latest victim. Like the first book I read this in one sitting as I need to know what happens. Now I eagerly await the 3rs book in the series.

Tainted Pictures is the second installment in The Photographer Trilogy and picks up right where Tainted Bodies left off. Tainted Pictures has Kate and Derrick growing, both as individuals and as a couple. Kate is searching for and finding her inner strength and purpose in her life. Derrick is coming to terms with his treatment of Kate and becoming a much stronger man. As a couple they are learning to trust each other. Whenever they are together their chemistry is just undeniable—sparks fly, as do clothes! One of the true gifts in this book is the multiple characters we come into contact with. Being able to see the story from several different viewpoints was fascinating to me. I loved that we were able to view the action from both Kate and Derrick’s perspective but then also from the Detectives, Liz Snow and Mike McCraig’s. It made the book deeper, richer and more alive as we cling to our e-readers desperate to figure out who is leaving pictures. Who is The Photographer? Well, I thought that Tainted Bodies left us with a cliffy and it did…but nothing like the cliffhanger that was left for us on the very last pages of Tainted Pictures. I have a feeling people are going to be knocking down Sarah’s door trying to get Book 3! I received a complimentary copy of Tainted Pictures from the author in exchange for my honest review.

I normally don't read Crime Romance but I'm totally addicted to The Photographer Trilogy! I loved Tainted Bodies and I loved Tainted Pictures even more if possible! Sarah Robinson's writing style draws me in and won't let me go until I'm done with the book and then I have to have more! Kate had me cheering for her louder in Tainted Pictures with her pulling herself up by the bootstraps attitude, her forgiving nature, and the fact that her heart never became stone! Derrick stayed manned up in this book so I fell more in love with him! He became the man I knew he could be! Once again, my emotions were all over the place with fear added in this time! Sarah Robinson also left us with a monster cliff hanger as if it wasn't hard enough to wait for the next book! Again, I will say I LOVED Tainted Pictures, and it will be almost impossible to wait for the final book to come out! I will recommend this Trilogy to everyone no matter what you read! It will draw you in from beginning to end!

I was a Beta reader for Tainted Pictures the second book in The Photographer Trilogy. I loved Tainted Bodies. But Tainted Picures goes more in depth on the search for the person who attacked Kate. We learn more on how Kate is picking up the pieces to her life and moving on. She will not be a victim. She will stand tall. Or will she? Then we have Derrick. The boyfriend we all loved to hate in book one. This time around he is a stand up guy. He is there for Kate to love and support her. To protect her. But can he keep his promises? The suspense in this book draws you in more. It leads you to think it's one person, and then another. It keeps you guess right up to the end. Literally. ***Remember this book is only two out of three so there is a cliffhanger ending. Let's just hope we don't have to wait very long for the next book!

Stars 4.5 Tainted Pictures (The Photographer Trilogy #2) More twists and turns you will not see coming. Kate is still trying to recover from her attack. Don't start eh book until you have the time to finish reading it fully. Hard to put down. Very action packed.
