Review of Tainted Desire by Wendi Huxley

Title: Tainted Desire (Desire Series Book #1)
Author: Wendi Huxley
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: December 13, 2014

This Series is a trilogy.

Kylie Jenkins has lived the past few years fearing for her life. She knows she must do whatever it takes to escape her current situation. With each assault, the injuries she sustains are more severe. She calls upon her childhood friends to help her escape, however it means moving away from everything she loves. Without knowing if she will ever see her family or friends again, she takes off in hopes of a new beginning. Her entire world is turned upside down until she is reunited with her childhood love and things start to look up. Cameron is the type of man she wants to spend her life with, he is fun, sensitive, considerate, and sexy.

Unfortunately, for Kylie, her dangerous past seems to be sneaking up on her. Strange things start happening to her, making her feel apprehensive and afraid. Her friends assure her that she is safe, but they start to think Kylie might be a bit paranoid. Will Kylie finally have her storybook romance? Or will her love and desire for Cameron be tainted from the start?

So many women fall victim to domestic abuse. Kylie is no different. She is as gentle and sweet as she is beautiful. She has lived now under Dylan's torture for years. I felt deeply empathetic for her. Dealing with a controlling, jealous and abusive man is something a young woman should never have to face. As I read this book, I hoped her parents would be able to help her. Thankfully, she has a supportive family and friends that can help.

I could tell as I was reading the scenes where she is running away from Dylan that her BFF Courtney would be very supportive of her. Of course, Courtney's twin brother Cameron was also a ray of hope. He and Kylie had been each others' first love, first kiss. I was hoping Cameron would turn out to be the type of guy who would protect Kylie.

The love affair between Kylie and Cameron is both gentle and HOT. He deeply cares for her and has carried her love in his heart for years. He is on the pursuit of her forever love and is man enough to both cherish her and provide her with the all encompassing love she needs.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book with the gentle heart-throbbing love as well as the ever present danger of Dylan's revenge. I must warn you readers... there is a cliffhanger. To alleviate the pain, I will tell you a secret... this is a trilogy and book #2 is due out in April, 2014, so you won't have to wait very long.

About the Author 
My name is Wendi Hulsey. I was born and raised in Racine, Wisconsin, just south of Milwaukee. After several vacations to the sunshine state, my husband and I fell in love with the warm weather and decided to have a house built in Florida. I miss my family and friends up north; however, I will never regret not having to shovel snow again. I have been a registered nurse for about ten years. I currently work on a medical/surgical unit, preferring to work the night shift.

My husband and I have been married for sixteen years, and I appreciate his support during this endeavor. I have one son who is a hard working grown man now living on his own. He has blessed me with the most precious grandson and a wonderful future daughter in law. My daughter is a beautiful and smart teenager who excels at just about anything she tries. She enjoys playing soccer and we have spent numerous hours on various soccer fields. I am blessed to have my mother, a retired cook, living with me and she is a great help with cooking, cleaning, and chauffeuring the teenager. Other members of our family include; one dog, one cat, two turtles and several fish.

My love for reading began at the age of twelve on a stormy day. With nothing to do I was bugging my mother, she said, “Go read a book.” I have never stopped. As a teenager, I preferred horror books, mainly Stephen King. As I age, my reading tastes change and I currently read mysteries, romance, or erotica. It has always been my dream to write a book. Although writing is a hobby for me, I hope to produce a book to the best of my abilities and hope you have enjoyed what you read. Thank you for your support.
