Favorite Quotes:


That’s the thing I hate the most. Pity. Never, ever, pity me. I’m a survivor. I am living. And all I want is to be seen – I want people to see me, not just see what they will soon discover resides in my blood.


I think Tillie’s onto me and my tardiness. She asked me to pick up a few bottles of wine, so I knew I had to get her early, being the one in charge of the most coveted goods in all of Thanksgivingland.


Listen, I’m in the mood for a little Bearded Burglar… Are you saying I’m too old to speak like that? I better stop listening to my young hires at the salon, they’re corrupting me. Here I thought I was becoming cool again.   They told me I could pull it off.


Easy there, Life Coach, we haven’t even had a full date yet. You can tuck the Save the Date cards back into your breast pocket.


She is totally your kid. She pounded it back. You’d think it was a hamburger, or a bottle of red wine…


My Review:


Gillian Jones broke my heart. I am gutted but I am willing to forgive her as I am in complete awe of her mad skills and drawn to her magical word powers. I love her style. I adored Ms. Jones’ Pub Fiction series and admire her feisty heroines and vibrant characters. Trinity is no exception as she provides a strong and sassy leading lady for Tainted By Love. But Hendrix holds my heart and has taken the throne of the perfect Book Boyfriend.   These alluring characters were endearing, appealing, and oh so sweet together. I fully appreciated the thoughtful and considerate education I received in regards to Trinity’s illness and the challenges it presented. I gleaned a treasure trove of new and valuable information without feeling schooled. The storyline was relevant, thought-provoking, emotive, engaging, humorous, steamy, and packed with amusing banter and corny puns. I will forever recall this heart-squeezing couple every time I see or hear of a tire iron; my brain has been indelibly branded with this association – and I am totally cool with that.
