Book Review: Taint (Sex Education #1) by S.L. Jennings

Justice Drake runs an exclusive sex therapy spa for high society women. These women are all here for one reason: to try and regrab the attention of their philandering husbands. And Justice is going to teach them how to do that with sex. Justice loves his job. Loves making the rich, uptight bitches uncomfortable. Loves breaking them down to unleash their inner sex kittens. While he also loves sex, he remains cold and aloof towards the women that learn form him at Oasis. He knows better than to dabble where he works. Except something feels different about this latest group. And that difference is Allison.

Allison has been married to Evan Carr for 5 years and he has been unfaithful the entire time. And she knows it. Hell, the entire world knows it. Now her cheating husband has sent her to Oasis to learn how to fuck. Yeah, he's awesome, isn't he? Justice is drawn to her like sunshine and no matter how hard he tries, and he does try, he can't stay away. He knows he can't have her, not forever anyway, because when her time with him is over, she will go back to her husband, Cheating jerk or not.

To say that I have been anxiously waiting for the release of Taint is a gross understatement. From the minute the cover and blurb were releases I've been dying to get my hands on it! So when release day finally arrived, I put my kids on the bus and dove right in. And yes, I totally had cover model Mike Thurston's Instagram page up on my iPad while I read this. I admit it. I have no shame.

This book was everything I was hoping for and oh so much more. I expected an interesting story with the whole sex education thing, and I got that. I also expected a sex fest, and yes I got that too. But not a non-stop sex fest with little story. No. You have to wait a little bit for that steaminess but once you get their it is amazing. But it was also quite funny too and I genuinely adored both Justice and Ally. Jutice has this vulnerability and loneliness that he hides behind his cool facade. Without even trying, Ally starts to break through to the real him. And Ally is beautiful and awkward and funny and a Friends fanatic and god I love all of that about her.

The ending was not quite what I expected. There are some twists, which I had a slight inclination about, but man oh man I was holding my breath to see how everything would play out. I really did not know which way it would go. The only thing I would have liked was an epilogue. But let's be honest, that's mostly because I just wanted more Justice. There is no cliffy here, which is usually a big fat YAY! But I was oddly sad that there wasn't because that meant my time with Mike Thurston Justice Drake was over.

This was my first book by S.L. Jennings and it certainly will not be my last. Taint blew my expectations out of the water and left me with the biggest book hangover of the year.

Right now, you’re probably asking yourself two things:
Who am I?
And, what the hell are you doing here?

Let’s start with the most obvious question, shall we?

You’re here, ladies, because you can’t f*ck.

Oh, stop it. Don’t cringe. No one under the age of 80 clutches their pearls.
You might as well get used to it, because for the next six weeks, you’re going to hear that word a lot. And you’re going to say it a lot.
Go ahead, try it out on your tongue.
F*ck. F***ck.

Ok, good. Now where were we?

If you enrolled yourself in this program then you are wholly aware that you’re a lousy lay. Good for you. Admitting it is half the battle.

For those of you that have been sent here by your husband or significant other, dry your tears and get over it. You’ve been given a gift, ladies. The gift of mind-blowing, wall-climbing, multiple-orgasm-inducing sex. You have the opportunity to f*ck like a porn star. And I guarantee, you will when I’m done with you.

And who am I?

Well, for the next six weeks, I will be your lover, your teacher, your best friend, and your worst enemy. Your every-f*cking-thing. I’m the one who is going to save your relationship and your sex life.

I am Justice Drake.
And I turn housewives into whores.

Now…who’s first?
