Tainted by Amanda Cowen – Review


This is a new author for me and I’m super excited because I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait to dive into some of Amanda Cowen’s other works ASAP! I may or may not already be reading one and have a few others on my TBR list already 😉 One of the first things I discovered I loved about this story was the way she describes their gorgeous surroundings. The scene building? It made me long to visit Montana and Wyoming and explore all the seemingly untouched areas of our little part of the universe.

Rhys Wyatt is the right amount of charming and arrogant while his brother Blaine is sweet and devoted.

Rhys Wyatt. Ivy Bishop. Blaine Wyatt – while the story centers around these three, you’ll also notice some very entertaining and semi swoon worthy secondary characters peeping in throughout the story. Tainted is listed as Wyatt #1, so I’m reeaalllyyy hoping that means we’ll eventually see Wyatt #2 and it will have more of my favorite secondary characters taking the spot light!

I obviously don’t want to say too much about the story, because duh, spoilers. But I do really want to say how much I enjoyed the story and the journey that Ivy took throughout it.

A lot of the time I struggle when a female lead doesn’t really know herself; when she struggles with her individuality, doubts her self-worth and constantly battles the invisible force that seems to keep holding her back from achieving what SHE wants in life. Therefore I found myself cheering when Ivy realizes what she’s been allowing to go on in her life and begins to change things for the better.

(Wyatt #1)
Publication date: June 22nd 2018
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Rhys Wyatt is as arrogant as he is beautiful, and Ivy Bishop has been infatuated with him forever. The night Ivy makes her move, it ends horribly, leaving her utterly heartbroken.

Three years later, Ivy is dating Blaine Wyatt; Rhys’s loving and tender younger brother. With Rhys and their past somewhat out of her mind, everything about her relationship with Blaine seems perfect. But when Blaine leaves Ivy alone all summer; neither of them anticipated Rhys to return, or him and Ivy to be stuck living under the same roof…

Rhys never believed Ivy would be all grown up and everything he’s ever wanted – gorgeous, perfectly alluring, and an infuriatingly tempting beauty he has to keep his hands off of. But the more they try to resist each other, the more intense their urges become, until one night changes everything, and Wyatt brothers will never be the same.
