Tainted Black by Shanora Williams


Dear Mr. Black,
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

** 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!!!

Betrayal, loss, lust, sacrifice! 
What an incredible emotional journey I have just been on.

She had a crush from the beginning... and he knew it. 
But besides that, they had a bond. A connection. She understood him, and he her.
There was nothing dirty or perverted about it. 
They were both of age, yet your very best and practically only friend's dad? 
tsk tsk Now that's what made it taboo. 

They provided something for each other, risqué or not, it was what they needed. 
You could feel the lust and electricity. 

Damn Shanora Williams for making Mr. Black so damn hot and delicious!!! 

There were also multiple moments of pain and loss. I had tears in my eyes on more than one occasion.

They say everything happens for a reason. 
Life is tough! Along the way you hope you find love and happiness. 
Sometimes you make mistakes. There are times you'll have to make sacrifices. 
But ultimately you live and you learn.

"She 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."

This was definitely an intense emotional journey.
