I was given this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
The story is a bit slow but very enjoyable. You know something is going to happen and you feel anxious about it but the author keep your interest high till the end. I nearly had a heart attack reading the end. If you want to have a good time, get this book. You won’t regret it.

I love love loved this book. It was empowering to see Kylie get away from her abusive ex. Even thought he sent someone to find her. Her and Cameron's story is only of love and loss. I can't wait to continue reading it. <3

Tainted Desire

Kylie Jenkins is stuck in a long term relationship with her abusive boyfriend
Dylan McCain. She is determined to start a new life free of him. She and her
best friend,Courtney Conner, come up with an escape plan for her to start a new
life. The bonus to this plan? Well, she gets to see her first love again,
Courtney's twin brother, Cameron. Things move fast between Cameron and Kylie,
and fast is definitely what Cameron likes since he's an up and coming NASCAR
Kylie's life is starting to turn in the right direction, but she knows Dylan is
bound to seek revenge or get her back.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars

I'm not much into books with abusive relationships. I will let this one slide
with me, because she does decide to get herself out of it. And with that, the
story begins! I'm loving the rekindling of a teenage love. Cameron is a super
sexy book boyfriend that is also super smitten with his girl. Isn't that what we
all want in our minds? What more can we ask for? Wait, let's ask him to have a
super cool job as well! Let's make him a NASCAR driver! Oh that gets my engine
running! So, I'm totally good with the characters.
The story moved at a good pace for me. The book was well written. I got enough
background on the characters as the story progressed. There were tons of steamy
sex scenes. In fact, there was probably one on every other page. I stopped to
ask myself if there was just too much lovin' going on that it took away from the
story... NAH! The story flowed fine with all the steamy, hot scenes.
The ending was something I definitely didn't see happening. I thought I had
it all figured out in my head; just another obvious ending. Nope, I was
completely wrong. This is a cliffhanger, but that's okay. I'm going to jump
right into the next book in the series.
The only reason I couldn't give this book that fifth star was because I was
able to walk away from the book when it was time to eat, socialize, and sleep.
It didn't pull me into it to where I just couldn't put it down until the last 3
Over all this is an excellent read, and I am definitely going to hop right
into the next book! I recommend you read this and meet these wonderful

HASH(0x9c9ab198) out of 5 stars “Cameron, I’m yours for the taking. Do what you want with me.” “Baby, that’s a dangerous statement you just made.” Jan. 13 2014
By Bookaholic Mama - Published on
Format: Paperback
Kylie Jenkins is twenty five and for the past three years she has lived with her abusive boyfriend Dylan. She finally has the courage and the help she needs to escape. Her childhood friends Courtney and Cameron Conner, who left Milwaukee when they were thirteen and moved to Daytona, are flying her to Florida and helping her out until she can get back on her feet. Cameron was Kylie’s first love and she cannot wait to see him again after all these years. She’s happy to be reunited with her friends but she is terrified that Dylan will find her. He has threatened to kill her if she ever left him.

This first chapter of this book revolves around Kylie’s escape and I have to say my heart was in my stomach throughout most of this book but especially in chapter one. I was sure Dylan was going to get her and the author truly made me think Kylie might not make it out of Wisconsin in tack.

This book is full of OH S*** moments, sexy love scenes and sweet and tender moments as Kylie begins to regain some of her self-worth. Strange things start to happen almost immediate after Kylie arrives in Florida which lead me to believe that Dylan has found her, it truly kept me on the edge with anticipation waiting for big moment expecting him to jump out and get her, I won’t say if it happens or not. You will have to read it to find out, but the threat is always there.

Kylie and Cameron’s relationship picks up fairly quickly and the sex is pretty hot, I wouldn’t mind a go around with Cameron Conner ;). Cameron’s sister also begins a relationship with Blake a professional volleyball player so the four spend a good amount of time together and there is a lot of passion in that relationship as well. The book ends with a cliff hanger, of course, but I’m fairly certain how it will play out, but I have been fooled by authors before. The only thing that bothered me about the story is that Kylie was in this abusive relationship for three years living fairly close to her parents and they never asked or tried to help? I guess that’s why it’s called fiction. I recommend this book, it was suspenseful and sexy and a quick read. I give Tainted Desire 4.5 stars with 4 hands down the pants. I look forward to Heated Desire which is scheduled for release in April 2014. Nice work Wendi Hulsey!!

“Cameron, I’m yours for the taking. Do what you want with me.” “Baby, that’s a dangerous statement you just made.”

HASH(0x9e84f39c) out of 5 stars Tainted Desire May 8 2014
By Susan - Published on

I am always amazed when I pick a book to read that has many (almost an average) 5 star rating and find out I didn't like the book. 'Tainted Desire' is a romance with a tiny bit of suspense. There is no real story as much as there is the two main characters having sex, which is ok. But, the characterizations are substance to the people, the writing, and the story line. Also, SPOILER ALERT, the book suddenly ends when one of the main characters appears to die. TO BE CONTINUED. Really? I think it was just not my "cup of tea".

Tainted Desire (Desire Series, #1)

Kylie has just escaped an abusive relationship with the help of her best friend Courtney and Courtney's twin brother Cameron. Kylie and Cameron secretly had a thing for each other when they were 13 and haven't seen each other since then. Cameron has loved Kylie forever and doesn't waste any time in letting her know how he feels. I really enjoyed the plot. There is a ton of hot sex in this book and many twists and turns. My only problem was I felt like the author rushed over scenes and didn't spend enough time to help me really connect with the story. This is Wendi's debut novel so I'm sure she will only get better with the next book. There is a major cliffhanger so I am anxious to read the next book.

HASH(0x9c9e360c) out of 5 stars Sexy, Steamy and yet very halarious read. Dec 12 2013
By charlene - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I had the honor of beta reading this book and I love it. The story line really touched my heart. It is about and abused woman who finally escapes her past (or well thinks she does) she seeks shelter with her childhood friends (who are twins) and she rekindles a childhood romance with Cameron (they sexy steamy race car driver) their relation ship is quickly fueled desire and it will lead you through and emotional rollercoaster.

This book is a series so the story does not end here, but it is one you don't want to miss. My all time favorite sex scene is in this book.

I laughed so hard through out this book, I shed a few tears from time to time, but over all it was a sexy steamy and yet very hilarious read.

Can't wait for book two!
