And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. - Mark 7:20-23
The streets of Boston are running red with blood.
It isn't the first time, either.
Forget the history of this city; it's what happened nearly nine-years-ago that continues to haunt us all.
They say obsessions can destroy you.
Well, I'm here to tell you that's a fact.
A serial killer played games with us once, leaving our heads spinning.
I chased them down, threw my whole life into chaos. From the very first kill, I was there.
My career nearly ended before it ever began.
Then, suddenly, the killer vanished. Gone into the shadows. Never to be heard from again.
They're back, fiercer and bolder than ever. An obsession reawakened that threatens my sanity and leads me towards a collision with a new fixation.
One more dangerous.
One much more vile.
She's everything my religion warns man to stay away from—the quintessential temptress sent to ruin our lives.
I thought the case would be what ended me.
Turns out, I'd sell my soul for just another taste of her.

This book of N. Isabelle Blanco and Dee Garcia is a incredible story made by geniuses. This two amazing authors created this story of obsession, mystery and suspense.
This book left me speechless. Left me wanting more of Maverick and his obsession to find the serial killer. When Maverick meets Kiera it becomes a bigger distraction and obsession.
Hold on to the dark ride your about to read it’s full of suspense. I definitely recommend it. I can’t wait for the next installment.
Holy Crap on a Cracker! This book was Hot as Hell! ...and Deliciously Twisty! I absolutely love Blanco! Everything she writes is golden! I was so excited when this book was in the works because I knew it would be another addictive read but I was so not prepared for Tainted! Blanco and Garcia have completely obliterated my mind! They bring us a whole new meaning to Dark and twisted! I most definitely need to go to confession this week! Lord pray for me because my greedy little heart is full on lusting after Mav! This book had my whole body on the verge of a seizure from the thrilling suspense! So much is happening, so many questions and suspicions! One, let me say I want to get stabby with the partner every time she comes on to him! Two, I have a full-on lady boner for Kira. She seduced me right along Mav! Temptation is such a strong desire, and has brought many men to their knees! This book will consume you in the most delicious way! I can’t stop thinking about it! I have to know what will happen next, if my assumptions are correct and what is the connection! Blanco and Garcia are dangerous together! Book two can’t come soon enough! I received a review copy in exchange for an honest review.
Anytime you see something written by these two authors, whether together or individually, pick it up. You won’t be disappointed.
This prequel to a new series is no exception in their combined endeavors. Good lord but it’s a fun read. I started it and finished it in one sitting; it’s not a long book.
This book is a mystery thriller. Men are being murdered and the police have been unable to catch the killer for eight years. Maverick, one of the detectives on the case, has been connected to it since the first murder. When a symbol of his family’s faith is found at a murder scene, he knows the connection is deeper than he previously thought. The ending of book one leads into the next, so we have to wait for more to be revealed.
This was a really good story (so not surprised from these two authors), and I highly recommend it.
