I know you were hurting. I
heard your cries. I wished over and over again that I could make it better, but
as you stated I was too inexperienced; too good for someone as bad as you.
Perhaps you were right, but
it didn’t matter because what I did know was that I loved the way you
felt—loved the way you smelled. I loved how hard you got for me, and when you
called me your Little Knight.
I can still remember that day
in the park, when you held me close and kissed me deep. How you effortlessly
made me cry your name on top of sweet smelling grass, making me feel like the
only girl in the world. I loved how you looked at me, how you spoke to me.
I had been madly in love with
you ever since I was twelve years old, but I shouldn’t have been.
Isabelle would have hated
it—my best friend. I couldn’t afford to lose her. Besides, you two had already
lost enough. Losing Mrs. Black was the epitome.
It’s Chloe Knight.
I wanted to be there for you
no matter what, but Isabelle needed me too.
And she would have hated me
if she ever found out I was sleeping with her father.
** Tainted Black is a forbidden love-story about a girl who helplessly falls for her best friend’s father. After a tragic accident ends the life of Theo Black’s wife, he turns to the one person he has always found interesting.
Chloe Knight, the girl from across the street, his daughter’s best friend, and a person that is considered completely off limits for him. **
-- AUTHOR NOTE: Chloe IS NOT 12 when she sleeps with Mr. Black. When she says she's been in love with him ever since she was 12 years old, it means she has loved him since then, way before he ever knew. When the tragedy happens, Chloe is 19 and Theo is 39. When she mentions the "sweet grass" part, she is 19 years old. Hope that clears things up! :)
WOW! What do
you say after that?
This was my
first read by Shanora Williams and I know it is only the beginning!!!
loss, lust, sacrifice!
incredible emotional journey I have just been on.
She had a
crush from the beginning... and he knew it.
that, they had a bond. A connection. She understood him, and he her.
nothing dirty or perverted about it.
both of age, yet your very best and practically only friend's dad?
tsk tsk Now
that's what made it taboo.
something for each other, risqué or not, it was what they needed.
feel the lust and electricity.
Williams for making Mr. Black so damn hot and delicious!!!
also multiple moments of pain and loss. I had tears in my eyes on more than one
everything happens for a reason.
tough! Along the way you hope you find love and happiness.
make mistakes. There are times you'll have to make sacrifices.
ultimately you live and you learn.
deserved better than having to deal with my brokenness, a man with no
self-control- no guidance. A man with a dark past and an even darker heart.
That was my mistake, leading her on like that, taking from her what so clearly
didn't justify being mine."
