    If you've put off reading the first book because you know how it ends, wait no longer. Here is the end most people wanted for Theo and Chloe. I needed her, more than I fucking thought. I swore I could let go, make things easier for both of us, but I was so wrong. I never should have left Bristle Wave the last day I saw her. I should have stayed right there and dropped to my knees. I should have tossed my ring in the ocean and never looked back. I should have made her mine again, because if I had, I wouldn’t be feeling this. Heartache. Abandonment. Lonely, even while married. I would have had her. I would have been complete."This was a messy, sex filled ride. I'm not sure I can say I'm completely happy with how things went in this book, there was that extra something missing that the first book had, maybe it was the taboo aspect or that everything happened so quickly here. It was enjoyable, just not as good as the first book for me.A love like the one we had doesn’t just fade. It can’t disappear. A love like the one we shared lingers in your heart—sweeps through your soul. It robs you of your sleep, and gives you nightmares when you dream about losing them. It ignites, and with each day that passes without that person, you slowly wither away—deteriorate and crumble—until you realize you need to get your shit together and make it work.""She was a part of me. She’d snatched my heart right out of my chest and ran away with it."Before readingOH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDD I don't care if I sound like a 12-year-old One Direction fan, because right now this is all that matters. the description, I want this book so much. I loved the first book, even though I didn't like how it ended, it made sense. It fit. But this THIS is what my heart wanted. I AM SO EXCITED RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!Before description was addedSAY WHAT NOW?! A second book? About what? Do I even want another book?I can only see this being about her friend/his daughter and she was a bitch.

    4 ★'s When I read the first book, I was really unhappy with the ending and at the time, that was second book. So, imagine my absolute thrill in finding out that the author decided to write a second book. Not that all books deserve an HEA but isn't it like the first commandment for romance books that they all must end in a HEA? Especially the angsty ones..there has to be a reward for all that suffering!The book starts off with catching us up with what's going on in Chloe and Theo's lives. Chloe is still engaged to Sterling, although they are having problems, and she is teaching at the elementary school. Thea married Sheila, and they are also having problems. He is living in San Francisco and has opened up his auto shop. Theo's decided he's had enough and he goes after the person he loves. Luckily, Chloe's fully on board. I thought the whole Facebook thing was pretty hilarious and sweet. I loved reading about them trying to work things out and enjoying each other. The beach cave scene was pretty sexy! Leave it to Theo to make us swoon! It was wonderful having Izzy (Theo's daughter) back in the picture. She just made things that much better. I was really interested in what happened to her and would love to read a book about her. (Hint, hint!) The drama is pretty intense...I had no idea which was the author would go. I do have to say that I did feel a little sad for Sterling. But I loved the way Chloe handled Sheila! And of course the ending is amazing. It was sooo rewarding after everything they went through. So kudos to Shanora Williams for giving us the book we badly needed. I do admire her for taking a different route with the first book even though I was unhappy. One thing I like about reading new/indie authors is that they don't have all the same spit and shine. They don't all sound the same, they are unique with their own wording even if the dramas are similar. It just is a more refreshing take on things in a different point of view.

    4.0 "Little Knight" Stars!Note: I wanna write this review short and I will not give you spoiler. Maybe just glimpses, here and there.After a massive hangover and puffy eyes plus a broken heart Tainted (1st book) left me, I am just so thrilled to read Untainted. Sure, the first book ended satisfying, in fact with the ending that really gave me conflicted emotions I accepted it wholeheartedly and even convinced myself yeah, "someday in another lifetime". But just like any other readers, I am still rooting for Daddy Black and his Little Knight. I really don't care how taboo it is. I don't even mind how unconventional their affair is. What's important is, I needed closure. Break my heart or fix it but just like my next breath I needed it. And really, CLOSURE I get!“I’m here for you, Little Knight. But I think you knew that from the start.”Be still my heart. That was the first line I said when I started reading the book. It's just that, the feels is all over even right from the beginning. I was so engrossed that even with sleepless nights and a body so tired from work, I still managed to finish the book in one sitting. That is how good the book is. Untainted is not as gritty and filthy and emotional as Tainted but with Shanora's fashion, she managed to make her readers gravitate towards the story. It was so good. It was brilliantly written. I have loved the characters even more including Izy Bear who's grown up and remarkably became a wonderful woman. (Oh, I would love to read a story of her. *hint).Every detail was artfully written and vividly explained but above all every lines and scenes will struck you right in. Sure it wasn't as angsty as the first book but it was definitely filled with emotions that that will leave you contented and satisfied. And please don't get me started with their sexual tension because it was just so steamy and will surely leave you a female version of blue balls. Chloe’s pussy was remarkable in every way—impossible to forget. Wet. Soft. Snug. She fit around me perfectly. Next time I was going to take it slow. I would make it last a little longer. I would be gentler.Now take it, Theo Black is 20 years older than Chloe, his her best friend's/ ex-bestfriend's father, he's married and Chloe's engaged. Forbidden.Taboo. Dirty. But who cares when he's the only who knows you, knows your body so well he's the only one who can please you like no other. But above all, who cares when you both love each other?However Theo Black and Chloe's journey even from the very beginning was never easy, sure they love each other. They're soulmates but it was never enough. This conclusion tells us their tale that even though they both love each other getting back together is never that easy. Hearts got broken, secrets revealed. Twists and turns here and there it was overwhelming. But in the end you can definitely say, that their journey is a true definition that "love alone is never enough". You really have to fight for it, accept all the flaws and not just the perfection that comes with it. But above all, believe that a never ending happiness comes from a love so free you know you have fought together in the end.The question is, is this the ending I wanted for them? Hell yes, more than anybody else, after what they went through they more than deserve a happily ever after. I’d gone from being a tainted, fucked up mess to falling in love with an untainted and beautiful being. We were on our way. Creating this future. It was ours for the taking now. We’d won. Fuck yes, we’d won.*Graphics used from the authors fb page.*

    Title: UntaintedAuthor: Shanora WilliamsCategory: RomanceSeries or Standalone: Series,Book #2POV: DualPlot: 5Characters: 5HEA: Not tellingTainted Black is one of my favorite books ever so I am very happy to announce that daddy Black is back!!!I always wanted more and the author has finally made my wish come true. All the emotions that made the first book for me are also in this book! The heavy longing, the inner turmoil and passionate love make this book a very worthy continuation of Chloe's journey with Theo.I won't spoil the book but I cam safely say that if you loved Tainted Black you will love this book as well. Can Chloe and Theo have a second chance at being happy? Can their love survive their past and everyone around them? Read to find out!I highly recommend it.

    Better than the first book, and again, the beginning seriously hooked me in, but it fell flat during the second half. It got too convoluted and a little eye-roll worthy, but at least (view spoiler)[there's a HEA this time – yay (hide spoiler)]!*******Really... I don't even know if I want to read this (view spoiler)[after the disappointing ending (no HEA) of the first book... But I'm guessing this book is the HEA the MCs never got? (hide spoiler)]

    4.5 This Is Us StarsWhen Shanora Williams had announced that she was planning on releasing another book with Chloe and Theo all i could think was HELL MOTHERF*CKING YES WHAT TOOK HER SO DAMN LONG! My heart was rejoicing at this i couldn't believe that finally this incredible couple would get the ending they deserved at least i hoped so even if she didn't i would have cursed her but still read it WHY? because hello more Theo Fucking Black do i even need to go down that road?!Shanora more than lived up to my expectations with this book it was anything and everything , sexy heartwarming as well as angsty but just that little touch! It will give you feels like you've never expected before.There was sex and fluff but not too much just the right kind for this couple who I've been rooting for since 2015. Months went by and i still thought about this couple wishing and praying for more and I'll always love this author for giving it to us."I want you to tell me.Say Theo I want you to fuck me and i'll swear i'll give you the best fuck of your life ,baby"If you haven't met the sexy Daddy Black and his Little Knight then there isn't a better time than right fucking now! Do yourself a favour Read It Devour It Savour It because i swear there isn't a couple you'll love more than these two."Take me back he said panting roughly""Tell me you're mine little knight""Tell me you want this again"

    When the author posted news about working on the sequel of Tainted Black I about burst at the seams in excitement. Untainted was everything I could've hope for in a HEA for Chloe Knight and Theo Black. While I didn’t give into any tears, whether of happiness or anguish from the rocky road that these characters were going to have to walk to achieve that HEA, my heart sang and sang and sang in gladness and joy for all that happened in this story.At first the author wasn’t even thinking about providing a sequel for Tainted Black, and it took me a moment to fully accept this because the love that Chloe Knight and Theo Black shared was something that I felt seriously needed a happy ending. What helped me accept the author’s choice (if I didn't, there really wasn’t much I could do about it) was in knowing that things in life don’t always happen in the way we would want them to, the way that Chloe and Theo left things was bittersweet so in a way they gained their closure. But, as you can imagine when the author was inspired to continue their story I threw all thoughts of acceptance and understanding out of the window and prepared myself for another story of possible heartache and immense happiness in knowing that these characters would be back together.There’s so much that I feel towards Untainted that I’m having a hard time putting it all in written form, but I urge you all to at least try Tainted Black and then tell me if your heart wasn’t torn from your chest on behalf of Theo and Chloe. Then I encourage you to read Untainted and tell me that your heart wasn’t put back with a few bells and whistles attached.This duo-logy is one of my absolute favorites, Tainted Black stayed with me months after I finished and I still couldn’t get over the ending, Untainted might not stay with me the same way because of the absence of the emotional scars but it has seriously left a lasting impression on me.***Originally reviewed at Literary Treasure Chest:

    5 stars! ARC review!Shanora has done it again! I cannot express how much I wholeheartedly loved Untainted! It was perfect and worth the wait. Last year, I read one of my all-time favorite books, Tainted Black. It didn't have a traditional ending; it was raw, angsty, emotionally heartbreaking and realistic. I sobbed like crazy, but I loved it.If you're like me, then you probably begged for a sequel as well. I couldn't get over Tainted Black and needed more. I was so happy when Shanora announced a sequel :) Untainted had me laughing, crying, and falling more in love with Theo. Theo and Chloe were still very much in love with each other, but there were several obstacles they had to overcome before getting a HEA.Tainted Black is one of my all-time favorite books and now Untainted is added to that short list :) an unforgettable realistic love story I will forever cherish! Shanora Q. Williams I can't thank you enough for making my year and giving Theo and Chloe the perfect ending.

    I feel like the moment I finished TAINTED BLACK I've dreamed of this book happening, there's just no way I could move on with life after that ending. So, obviously when I found out this book was being brought to life I died a little inside. There's no way to put it, this book made my heart beat again, it made me feel what it feels like to be in love for the first time, the second time, the 100th time. My heart just kept beating faster and faster. Chole and Theo are just pure love. These two are meant to be. Nothing will stop them this time right?! You'll have to find out for yourself. There's not much I can say without ruining this experience, and I'm not gonna do that.This book is pure addiction. Pure cocaine. I couldn't stop. We all asked for more and boy did we get it. That ending. That ending. Read for yourself to see what I mean. Must read!And thank you, Shanora.

    **No Spoilers** ARCI'm speechless .I can't really form the right words about how I feel for this book.So in love with this book thanks Shanora.

You won't be disappointed. My heart is broken only because it ended but I will always cherish these characters.Definitely on top of my fave books and book boyfriend ever.

    I couldn't dive into this fast enough.after book 1 left me crying on the floor , this was a much needed relief to my eyes and heart. Chloe Knight is now separated, by choice, from Theodore Black. But are they happy ?Far from it. He's married to Shiela and miserable.She's engaged to Sterling and is miserable.So one fine day he realises ...WTF am I doing with my life. I'm supposed to be with the one I truly love and crave. YOLO and all that !!Thank God, or I'd have jumped in the book and beat on his skull !!A love like the one we had doesn’t just fade. It can’t disappear. A love like the one we shared lingers in your heart—sweeps through your soul. It robs you of your sleep, and gives you nightmares when you dream about losing them. It ignites, and with each day that passes without that person, you slowly wither away—deteriorate and crumble—until you realize you need to get your shit together and make it work.So he embarks on a mission. To grab his life, his love, his Little Knight back .... Yay!!!!!!!!!But it's not gonna be easy. Remember the pissed off people from book 1, yeah..the headcount has gone up.There's shitstorm brewing cause people left behind have a tendency to become nasty Bitches and bastards !!Surprisingly Izzy grows up and owns her maturity , still it's a battle ahead I knew a storm was coming, and it was going to be a fucking hurricane.him—I was going to take the risk and walk through the eye of the hurricane with him.I loved...loved...loved Daddy Black. How irresistible is their love, it's like their souls are aching. I loved Chloe evolving into a strong woman who fights for her love with quiet tenacity.I loved Izzy reuniting with her best friend.I loved Shanora's writing. Hot sizzling sex.

    OMG Its DADDY BLACK, ITS MISTER BLACK. When I heard that Shanora Williams was writing a follow up to “Tainted Black”. I thought I was getting my birthday present, XMAS Present and gosh knows whatever else present all rolled into one early. I then started wondering what was going to happen. I worried myself silly. The way book 1 ended, everything was left in a HFN ending and for me, well, I felt the MC didn’t get the ending they deserved. So when I opened my kindle the other day and saw an ARC of Untainted- book 2—I was literally jumping for joy. Then I sat down and didn’t move for hours and immersed myself in this book , in Theo Black and Chloe Knight’s 2nd chance love story. Is everything rainbows and unicorns? Oh no, why would you ever think that? But it is hot, sensual, sexy, full of a alpha male who has come back for his mate and is ready to get her back, no matter who stands in his way.This is the chance to re-write their ending which they should have had several years before when life got in the way and other people got in the way. It was awesome to read for Theo to have the epiphany and get off his rear and do something about it. While at the same time, Chloe is slowly pining for her lost love and is going thru problems in her relationship that she is currently in. These two (Theo and Chloe ) They are so meant for each other. They symbolize total love and devotion to one another. This book shows what the power of love can do and will do. Oh not to say there isn’t villians that don’t come out of the woodwork. Because they do but Daddy Black makes certain he protects his lady love and his alphaness makes me shudder by his power. I so loved how he did everything for the love of those he cares about. Lucky Chloe. Little Knight doesn’t know what hit her until almost midway thru this book and she finally seems to wake up and start fighting hard for keeping Daddy Black with her—forever. The ups and downs, twists and turns- and I have to say, the one super twist I didn’t see coming, will have you doing a “WTH”??!! But that was my take. I would hope Izzy will get her own book because in this 2nd book, there seems to be something to her here, something that happened in her past and I smell story here. So yes, even those Daddy Black and Little Knight epic love story is over, dare I say daughter Izzy has a story to tell? What a fabulous love story that gave me, the reader, the thrills and heat, the passion and the angst, the action and suspense that we were needing to close the HUGE story that was Theo and Chloe.My rating: 4.9 stars ***** "I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

    Ya know I didn't know what to expect with this story because well heck Tainted Black is sooooooo awesome! I now understand and appreciate why Untainted had to be shared. This story exposes so many emotions. The beginning of the story is hard because as a reader you have to continue to remind yourself this story is purely fiction. As a reader you can't offer Chloe any advice. It's really tough to read through what Chloe willingly endured for her man. As the story continues we can finally see the light! Woohoo the light! Welp the grass is definitely not greener on the other side....yet. It's not what you think. You gotta consider outside forces. From Chapter 28 to the freaking epilogue, you will be swimming in anxiety. It's like every other sentence is "Ermagawd" really??!!! What a LOVELY feeling!!!! Nothing like it....So if you're sensitive don't read Untainted. You're not ready. If you can separate fiction from reality, then go for it! It's a FANTABULOUS read! I can't say enough about Mr. Black and Chloe!!!Five stars!

    Oh my goodness!!! Daddy Black is back and what a ride we go on. Times have changed, Theo is married and Chloe is engaged. But you know what? Theo is tired of loosing out on the one thing in life he has always wanted so.....he has made up his mind.... I’m coming home, Little Knight and I will make you mine again. Will the coming home be what he thought it would be? Will the out come end the way Daddy Black wants it to end, with his Little Knight at his side forever and always? What a great ending to this love story that was wrong in so many eyes yet right in the eyes that matter. Getting there was a rocky rough road but hopefully every bump and stumble made them realize who they truly belong to!!!

    Ok, so I probably shouldn't have read this book. That's a terrible way to start a review, but, it's no less true. So if you've read the first book you know that the ending is...nontraditional. And I was okay with that. It fit for Chloe and Theo. But, I was greedy for more Chloe and Theo so when I found this one I borrowed it through KU, and then I let it sit on my kindle for almost a year (seriously I borrowed it 2/11/17) I was afraid that I wouldn't like book 2, I loved book 1 and I was afraid this more "palatable" ending for traditional romance readers would ruin what I loved about book 1. And then I finally read it. And it wasn't bad, I just honestly wanted more Tainted Black. Not something new. So, I'm not rating this. It was good and if you're someone who needs that traditional romance story this duet will satisfy that. I'm just going to pretend like this was other people and Chloe and Theo's story ended after Tainted Black 😆

    This book rained down MAJOR FEELS on me. It's the perfect and exact closure I needed after Tainted Black. It was sweet and full of swoony feels, yet it still packs a punch like no other. You still get the unexpected twists and turns that will shock you and have your jaw dropping on the floor. I'm honestly feeling bittersweet at the moment since I know this is the end of the road for Theo and Chloe, but I'm so over the moon that they finally got their happily ever after. This is it. It's their time and they won't let anything nor anyone get in their way of stealing the future that clearly belongs to them. Shanora Williams absolutely delivered yet again and nailed it with the way character growth was displayed from Tainted Black to Untainted, especially with Chloe and Izzy. They aren't the immature teenagers running around with their raging hormones anymore. Now, they know to think first before lashing out and see reason more. They came to accept things they never thought they would be able to after all these years. After everything their family and friendship has been through. It was so heart melting to witness. And I definitely loved how much Izzy is still involved in this book. I guess I wasn't expecting to get that much of her here, but I certainly got what I wanted for her story. I can't even begin to describe how I'm feeling for Theodore Benjamin Black right now. The only thing I know is that he killed me and melted my insides unrelentingly until I reached the very last page of this book. He made me love him all over again and gave me even more reasons why I should. Seriously, every time he opens his mouth to say something to Chloe, I die a little more. The man has a way with words and it's just sweet torture. He's also showed and proved time and again in this book why it's the perfect time for them to claim what should've been theirs in the first place. That he's going to fight to get his Little Knight back no matter what and get to call her his even if it means he has to do it until his very last breath. Gaaah, you'll get Daddy Black on a whole other level here and it's just EVERYTHING. So be ready, hold onto your hearts, protect your ovaries and hang onto your panties! Because you'll sure be dropping them knickers after that prologue. Everyone who went gaga over Tainted Black should most definitely read this. No question about that. Theo and Chloe are even hotter and more explosive as ever in this one. Their journey will continue to astound you and you'll just end up sighing along with how perfect they are, no matter how they got there. No matter how much they struggled and fought to be together and this time, for forever. Shanora, thank you for taking your time to write this. It was worth every single day waiting for. It's completely remarkable and so much more. It was everything I ever wanted for Theo and Chloe. And even Izzy. Daddy Black is BACK.

    It could be me...This book isn't a stand-alone.You must read Tainted Black, first. This picks up right after book one.There may be a trigger warning to some readers: 20 year age gap. Daughter's best friend falls in love with Daddy.I floved, I mean really floved book one. I loved all the drama, the angst, the forbidden hotness and let's not forget all that passion. It was all in book one.This one, not so much.This book was a total opposite of that book. This book was more about puppies, rainbows, and unicorns. Those to me are a trigger and hard limit.There wasn't so much any drama or angst in this book. Chlo and Theo, they just fell right back into things. All that passion and fight that they had in the previous book, it just seemed to fizzle out for me. There wasn't anything really for them to fight for. All just seemed to fall into place, you know that big happy pink bow. It all wrapped up before the book even started.There really wasn't much talk of anything, it was said, it happened.But...Lots and lots, of make-up sex. That seemed to be 2/3 of the book. There could of been so much more done with the plot line the author planned out. But I was just wham, bam, thank you ma'am on the plot line.Maybe it's just me as a reader? I just expected so much more after reading this author's previous books. Don't get me wrong, the sex times were hot. It just seemed they over powered everything that could of been.I will definitely read more of this author's work, and hope for the best.Not everyone is going to love every book, but if you pick this up, enjoy!

    5++++ Daddy Black star!!!!!I fee like jumping for joy and screaming HALLELUJAH that Untainted was written..I know that everyone who read Tainted Black was dying at the ending and wanted nothing more than to have Chloe and Theo ride off into the sunset together but they didn't. We thought that was it and we had to learn how to deal with that book hangover from hell buuuut our prayers were answered and BOOM...Untainted!!! Cut to three years later..Chloe is engaged to Sterling, Theo is married but no one is happy. Theo decides he's had enough of being miserable without his "Little Knight" so he's leaves divorce papers for his wife and heads back to Bristol Wave. Chloe and Sterling aren't doing much better....after months of being distant he tells her that he wants to call the engagement off because he can't get over Janet..Theo's dead ex-wife...DRAMA!!!! When they finally are reunited it's like no time passed..their love is still stronger than ever and they pick back up right where they left off, intense and very steamy. They go through everything but they fight through it.. they never let anything get in the way of their happiness and love anymore because dammit it's their time!!! I can't tell you how happy I am that this book was written and it's written so damn well..straight from the beginning it was so emotionally intense it was like I couldn't breath but in the best possible way!! After everything they went through and all the time they spent apart the ending was the most beautiful thing is this world!!!

I simply cannot express how much this book is worth every penny and every minute of time you spend reading it. Theo and Chloe's relationship is considered "against the norm" but is beautifully put together. Kuddos to a book very well written!!

    I'm soooo happy that there was a 2nd book.The way the first one ended... I was like NOOOOO I want these 2 to have a HEA.I started this today and read it in one sitting. I needed to know how the story would end.My god I was seriously like please god just let no shit happen!!I got excited, giggled, laughed, cried happy & sad tears and swooned so hard.This book was everything I hoped it would be.Theo was just everything on so much more. His character grew so much and I loved him even more if that could be at all possible.I wanted to dick punch Sterling!!!! I swear that little twunt... grrrrr.But from the very first page to the very last.. I loved it so bloody much.That last chapter and the epilogue made my heart so damn happy ♡♡

    4 UNTAINTED STARSOnly because I feel like it didn't do the first book justice. Even though we were told this was gonna be more fluffier than the first book. While the first book was more taboo, dark and grittier this book is basically just focusing on Theo and Chloe getting back together and the complications that come with it.But that doesn't mean this book wasn't anything short of amazing. It was emotional and just as sweet. And somehow Shanora managed to make us see the softer, more vulnerable side to Theo and Chloe. And the sex? Hot mama. Scorching! Loved this book! Safe to say my thirst for Daddy Black still isn't quenched but I'll take what I can get.

    Oh my gosh, I was so stoked when I found out we were getting more Theo and Chloe. I was so damn excited and let me tell you....this book was everything and more than I what I was expecting!I loved the fact that Theo went after what he wanted and what he wanted was Chloe. He basically re-married to get Chloe out of his heart and mind, but he knew that was the wrong decision and was going to rectify that.Chloe had fled because she was heartbroken that her best friend didn't want anything to do with her due to the fact that she was sleeping with her father. But the heart wants what it wants right! And what the heart wanted was Theo. He might have been much older than her, but he was everything she wanted.Chloe was engaged to Sterling, who was having an affair with Theo's deceased wife. She was murdered and no one was ever found guilty for her murder.Things start to unfold and unravel in this story and things get intense once Chloe and Theo decided to make things work with each other. Theo's soon to be ex-wife was giving him hell for asking for a divorce and Sterling was being difficult because after he had called it quits with Chloe, he decided to want to un-quit their engagement but it was a little too late. Sterling only wanted Chloe because he knew that she always had feelings for Theo and he hated Theo.But I loved the intensity and the love between Theo and Chloe. They were definitely made for each other despite their age differences. I'm glad that they didn't see that being a barrier between them.One hell of a story that was definitely worth waiting for!5 Super Stars!!**Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review**

    Impossible quand on terminé le premier tome de ne pas foncer sur le second si on a été sensible à l’alchimie que partage le couple formé part Chloe et Theo. Ce second tome, disons-le tout de suite, n’était pas prévu et cela se sent. Il n’est même pas forcément nécessaire de lire le premier tome même si je le recommande vivement. Shanora Williams avait choisi de raconter une histoire tabou, impossible et de lui donner une fin sans doute très vraisemblable. Mais voilà, les lecteurs de romance ne s’en sont pas satisfaits et elle a repris ses personnages pour leur donner un second tome. Il a été difficile de reprendre chaque fil de l’intrigue mais elle y est globalement parvenue.Rappelons donc que dans le premier tome, nous avions eu droit à la relation tendue, passionnée, intense, et impossible de Chloe avec le père de sa meilleure amie, Theo. Au fil des années, nous avions vu se dessiner une très belle et douloureuse relation. Lorsque le second opus commence, nous sommes environ cinq ans après la fin du premier ou plus exactement nous recommençons là où l’épilogue s’était arrêté. Si vous voulez lire le premier tome, ne lisez pas la suite, car il va y avoir quelques spoilers.

    THEO BLACK IS BACK!!! Untainted by Shanora Williams was a very emotional intense passionate love story. Having a second change to fall in love again. Letting go of the past and looking forward to the future! You have no idea how much I have been waiting for the continuation of Theo and Chloe's tragic love story. Untainted was everything I was hoping for! I had tears in my eyes throughout the whole book. I didn't want it to end! In Untainted you see a new side of Theo. He is older, and I would say tired of where he is at in his life. He is numb, broken, and a piece of his heart is still healing from the events of the previous book Tainted Black. Lets get one thing straight Theo is nothing without his Chloe. His little Knight....And he will stop at nothing to get her back. The chemistry was good as even better. It was hot as hell!! The sex scenes were scorching. But their pasts are coming to haunt them. Trying to destroy what they have. Theo and Chloe must fight for their love. But the question is,will they get the HEA they deserve? Read to find out!--Received a copy in exchange for an honest review--
