Debut author Sarah Robinson's first book in romantic suspense series, The Photographer Trilogy, is sure to please fans of thrillers and romance alike. Tainted Bodies is the tale of one woman's journey to rock bottom and the serial killer who dragged her there.
He takes a picture of every woman he kills. A little memento of his favorite moments.
She takes nothing from anyone.
Kate Jackson listlessly floats through life with no purpose or direction, only pain and memories. A woman with a haunted past and a desolate future, the only thing she has to cling to is the close relationship with her sister, Annie. Until she meets the charming lawyer, Derrick Kane.
Just when she thinks she might have found the key to learning how to live again, maybe even how to love, The Photographer rips it all away from her with one click of his camera.
Determined to find a way to survive, Kate must choose between pursuing justice, or hiding her problems like she has done her entire life.
Little did Kate know that death could be the only thing to bring her back to life.
Or that this is just the beginning...

Sarah Robinson’s Tainted Bodies is a Crime Romance, a dark and heavy read that I could not bring myself to put down.
Romance, past traumas, sisterhood, secrets, betrayals and a horrific crime that occurs now—it doesn't seem like it would all fit together into a book that would leave ME wanting more. But it worked together flawlessly. It was real, raw and gritty—full of secrets, lies, mysteries and evasions which lead you up to a cliffhanger and breathlessly waiting for the second book in this series. Yet it also had another side to the book—the budding of a new relationship between Kate and Derrick, the close bond between sisters and the incredible chemistry between Kate and Derrick.
One of the things I liked the most about Sarah’s writing was how utterly flawed and imperfect her characters were. Where usually we all dream about the knight in shining armor who swoops in and saves the day…let’s be honest we don’t see it every day. Derrick has flashes of the charming, dreamy, handsome, romantic man of our dreams and then there is that slightly mysterious, secretive commitment phobe side. Kate is dissatisfied at her job, yet is still there accepting promotions, all the while wishing and dreaming about something different. She is incredibly strong yet at the same time still broken inside. When she meets Derrick, their instantaneous connection starts off a relationship that truly excites Kate. However they are not exactly in the same page.
I have to be honest that Sarah made me rethink how I rate books! Usually I reserve 5 Stars for books that I want to read over and over again. I can’t be certain that I want to curl up with Tainted Bodies again because the material is so heavy, intense and realistic (though I am not ruling it out!), but this book was so brilliantly written and has not left me since I swiped that last page that to give it anything less would be a gross injustice.
I received a complimentary copy of Tainted Bodies from the author in exchange for my honest review.
