Book Review: Untainted by Sarah Robinson

untainted ecover


The Final Book in The Photographer Trilogy


Untainted (Photographer Trilogy, #3)


The infamous serial killer, known as the Photographer, is gone, but this time he has taken someone with him. Even though everyone finally knows his identity, he is still two steps ahead of them. Someone is dead. Someone is missing. Kate Jackson is one of those two. Derrick Kane finds himself teaming up with Annie, Kate's younger sister, in a desperate search for any clues that could lead them to the answers they need. Little did they realize that they would find a lot more than they had bargained for. Every dirty secret from the past comes to light, and they are faced with the ultimate test of true love, and true heartbreak. When an innocent life is on the line, the cost of justice could be more than love can afford. Not everyone makes it to the end of their love story.

**Please note that there is no cliffhanger at the end of this series and everything is fully wrapped up. This series is loosely based on a true story. DISCLAIMER: Due to violent and dark subject matter, this book is intended for readers over the age of 18 years old.

My Rating:

4.5 Stars  

Favorite Quotes:

From Tainted Bodies - Book 1:

“Kate had never been the graceful type.  She had always wanted to be and tried her hardest but somehow she was still known for tripping over flat sidewalks, walking into parked cars, and subjecting herself to whatever other type of embarrassment came her way.”

 “She had never really thought of him as a criminal but rather as her personal attacker, almost as if he belonged to her and no one else.”

From Tainted Pictures - Book 2:

 “Maybe two people can be broken on their own, but together they heal each other, they are whole.  Kate, I am broken without you in my life.”

 “Until she had been subjected to some of the worst experiences a human being can go through and felt the emotions so far from happiness that happiness wasn’t even a speck on their horizon, she couldn’t have fully felt real and true happiness.  Happiness is the face of someone who loves you.”

“She was beautiful and fierce, but delicate and broken.  She loved to fight and fought to love.  She took on the demons of the world as if it was nothing, handling herself with dignity at every step.”

From Untainted – Book 3:

 “How is it that you always manage to see the silver lining in everything, Derrick?  I’m bleeding from the head here.”

 “That was her absolute favorite thing, feeling him smiling when they kissed.  It was more than just lust or desire, and it was more than love.  It was happily in love, head over heels in love.  It was fairytale love, and ever since they met, Derrick had been slowly transforming into her perfect Prince Charming.”

My Review:

 I read 761 pages to write this review, and I would do it again.  In addition to the intriguing yet heartbreaking story, I saw and enjoyed a steady progression of an improved writing style as I made my way through the four stories.  It was very interesting to watch Ms. Robinson’s prose grow in quality and confidence from book one to the Epilogue after book 3.  My jaded heart felt a clench numerous times, and I will also admit to the sting of tears during several devastating and moving moments, particularly those involving her memories her childhood, and moments with his younger sister while they talked about being birds and flying away.  I think I will always remember that scene when I see a flock flying overhead.  I could intuit from some of the insights provided that this story was written by someone who knows personal pain.  I also noticed one of the best and most practical depictions of a dissociative state I have ever read or heard.  This was my first Sarah Robinson experience, and since I found myself to have been moved by her talented words, I plan to peruse her listings and add more of her works to my TBR.
