2 fatal sides.

1 epic love.

7 days to survive.

They met in the face of danger. They weren’t looking for love. They both knew better. But they couldn’t stay away, and they fell hard.

He is heart-stopping handsome, fearless—and haunted by deadly ties.

She is breathtakingly beautiful, determined—and in harm’s way.

They should have parted. They didn't. They never should have fucked. They did. And now time is running out. One hundred sixty eight hours. That’s all that remains. While Logan McPherson fights to save them, Elle Sterling is forced to make a choice that could change everything.

When torn between right and wrong, tainted love doesn’t have a chance...or does it?









This book was a completely & utterly awesome book for me. Blow by Kim Karr is the first book in her Tainted Love duet and by does it end on a cliffy. From the events of this book, I wouldn't have expected anything less. This book from page one made me want more.

Logan is trapped in a life that is dangerous and no place for a woman. Elle is trapped in the dark. Together they create something combustible. I actually really enjoyed Elle. She was a character I found relatable. And I'm not even going to lie, this book may take place over a seven day period but it was definitely enough time for me to fall in love with Logan.. Sigh. This story will literally BLOW you away. I don't want to give too much because this story is one that must be read and savored and by telling even a little, it gives a lot away about the book.

I will say, this is only the second book I've ever read by Kim Karr and I was captivated just as much as I was by her writing as the first book I ever read by her. This story has more plot and more depth than anything I've read in a long time. The writing was flawless again.

That cliffy though! Ugh. I'm am so not a fan of cliffies but this ending just made me want and crave more.



Kim Karr is a New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author.

She grew up in Rochester, NY and now lives in Florida with her husband and four kids. She's always had a love for reading books and writing. Being an English major in college, she wanted to teach at the college level but that was not to be. She went on to receive an MBA and became a project manager until quitting to raise her family. Kim currently works part-time with her husband and recently decided to embrace one of her biggest passions--writing.

Kim wears a lot of hats! Writer, book-lover, wife, soccer-mom, taxi driver, and the all around go-to person of her family. However, she always finds time to read. One of her favorite family outings was taking her kids when they were little to the bookstore or the library. Today, Kim's oldest child is seventeen and no longer goes with her on these, now rare and infrequent, outings. She finds that she doesn't need to go on them anymore because she has the greatest device ever invented--a Kindle.

Kim likes to believe in soul mates, kindred spirits, true friends, and Happily-Ever-Afters. She loves to drink champagne, listen to music, and hopes to always stay young at heart.
