Overview

Tainted Love (Behind Closed Doors - Book One) by Erin Cawood

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.

About the Author

I write contemporary romance/women's fiction. What I write sometimes is a little darker and a bit edgier. My characters, they put themselves in these situations, and sometimes these are places where even I don't want to go. Either way, they'll bring you tears and tantrums, joy and laughter, just don't expect the standard happy ever after. For this is their story. They only ask that I tell it.

Reviewed by Ica Iova for Readers' Favorite Tainted Love by Erin Cawood is a story that touches on domestic violence shared by the protagonist — Faith McKenzie — through letters to her younger brother. In her letters, Faith describes the slow decay of her marriage as her beloved psychiatrist husband, Calvin, ten years her senior, goes from a charming man who sweeps her off her feet to a controlling, manipulative, and abusive spouse. As it usually happens in these cases, the abused woman disregards the red flags and even finds excuses and justifications for her abuser's escalating violence against her. Faith has no doubt in her mind that Calvin loves her — all she needs to do is figure out what it is she does wrong and try harder not to upset him. But the cycle of abuse continues as Faith tries to hide it from her family, her children, and everyone around her until she is forced to face the truth — her life, and possibly her children’s lives, are in danger. Shadowed by fear and self-doubt, she finally gets the strength to leave, only partly aware of what the future holds. Told in simple expository language, Tainted Love is a spellbinding, raw, eye-opening novel of the mind. Cawood brings to light a difficult, realistic insight into the mind and rationale of an abused woman. The story is easy to read and hard to put down, in spite of the difficult topic. The rule of what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors is conveyed with accuracy in an often overlooked setting of well to do families.

A gifted copy was given in exchange for an honest review. A very well-written book about a very hard and difficult issue: domestic violence. It shows how manipulative abusers can be. It all starts one day to never end. They create a web where the abused person is caught in and unable to see a way out of it. The abused person feels guilty and blames herself (mainly women are the victims of domestic violence) for provoking her husband.  Easy to read and enjoyable in spite of the theme.
