Review: Tainted by Love by Gillian Jones

My name is Hendrix Hills.
When I was twenty-nine, I fell in love with a girl.
We loved fast. We loved hard.
But our love was tainted.

My name is Trinity Adams.
When I was twenty-seven, I fell in love with a boy.
We loved fast. We loved hard.
It’s too bad my blood was tainted.

6 'Forever and a day.' Stars

To venture outside of the popular and safe romance model of today, takes guts. Major guts. To write an epic love story based on and around susceptible and touchy subject matter is always a definite gamble, one with uncertainty lurking in the shadows. Some will love it, others may disagree by showing animosity and displeasure towards it. For me, this book was a breath of fresh air. Tainted by Love is EVERYTHING!!!! And I do mean EVERYTHING!

I'm not sure where to begin, aside from the fact that I. Freaking. Love. This. Book!
It's real.
It's raw.

'Sometimes we walk around playing victims, thinking we're the only ones subject to stigmatizing and assumptions, but you know what? I think sometimes we're our own worst enemies.'


Tainted by Love a thought provoking roller coaster ride of emotions from start to finish. I seriously can't get this book and these characters out of my head!! Executed with delicate, yet palpable delivery of the subject matter at hand, well informed and researched. Sensitive matter with a negative stigma attached to it, one that evokes FEAR when mentioned to most. While reading, it's quite apparent that Gillian Jones poured her heart and soul in to this work of prose and I'm simply in awe with everything it entails. This can happen to ANYONE at anytime. It doesn't discriminate, and as this book shows, anyone, even the most innocent of innocent are not protected from it.

'Her eyes match the armour she wears, especially around me; armour that doesn't stand a fucking chance against me. "IN PERPETUUM ET UNUM DIEM." That's how long I'll wait for this girl. That's my plan.'

This is Trinity's story. It's heart wrenching yet breathtakingly beautiful; haunting so at the same time. It's a story of overcoming adversity, fear, acceptance and love. Emotions will be evoked in every facet imaginable. Get ready to cry, laugh and smile your way through this poignant tale of a young girls life with an unconventional HEA, but a HEA nonetheless.  Oh, and have fun meeting your next book boyfriend! Hendrix is the bomb.com when it comes to swoon and alpha swagger *wink*

'It's time to rewrite your ending.'

Review: Call Me by Gillian Jones

Some know me as Chanel69.
But to my friends and family, I'm simply Ellie Hughes.
A university student who's in desperate need of money. A lot of money, and fast.

I'm about to start a new job.

Three nights a week I'll be the star in your late night fantasies, bringing your fetishes and fucked up scenarios to life.
Men will listen to my voice while they get off on their dirtiest desires.

Truth be told...this job makes me nervous. Regardless of the money, I don't think I can do it.

But when he calls I feel an instant connection.
Over time, he becomes my regular, my friend, and my confidant.

The problem is…he seems familiar...I think I know who he is.
If I’m right, how will he react when he discovers that I'm Chanel69?

4.5 'Irrevocably hot for teacher' Stars

Oh.
My.
Gaaaaaawd.

I love discovering 'new to me' authors and Gillian Jones has literally rocked the proverbial socks right off my feet with Call Me! I love going into a book blind and once I figured out this was a student/teacher book, well...*cue the giddy book nerd anthem* EEEP! Obviously I was in heaven! I am beyond obsessed with this trope! Oh, hello, my dearest friend, Mr. Taboo. How I 'heart' thee.


'I've always been extra careful to maintain my professionalism and to make sure to never put myself in a compromising position. But with just one look at her, all thoughts went exactly there: to all the compromising positions in which I could put this beautiful girl.'



Well, hot damn! Call Me is definitely a book that stands out compared to the dozens of others that I've read. Unmistakably unique in story-line, diversely rich in characters, chock full of witty banter and THAT loophole-y twist. If you are hot and heavy into Student/Teacher taboo like I am, this book is a must read!! They're both adults, so get your panties untwisted. This is classy smut *wink*

I don't want to give away all the juicy, sexually laced goodness. So, dig in and enjoy the wild ride that is Ace & Ellie.

Class, Discretion, and the Happy Ending.
