I absolutely loved Tainted Jewel by S. M. Hope.

Kate is the main character in the story and follows her life from a young and vulnerable age, i couldnt help but enjoy and love her story.

From a young age kate is brough into a criminal world, one she doesnt realise shes being pulled into.

S. M. Hope knows how to draw your emotions out throughout the story, i laughed, cried and at one point was shouting out no!!

Some parts in the story are brutal but its a story i’ve fell in love with. I loved the cha

No spoilers.

it's a roller-coaster and no mistake! I knew it'd be good because Britain's Next Best Seller only support great reads, and I wasn't disappointed.

I was thrown when I started because it's not your usual crime drama, but it's not trying to be something special. In fact, it's very relatable. You follow our main character, Kate, with ease, watching her take on life challenges that some of us may be able to relate to, but as she progresses, so do the twists and turns in her life that kee

What a brilliant and different book, different in a very good way. I liked the young character Kate, innocent in so many ways and as the reader we are taken on her strange and sometimes disturbing journey to adulthood. She began to annoy me as she grew up and I actually hated her at times, especially for some of the decisions she made, and then the author would throw in her vulnerability and make me see her fragility and make me love her again. S.M. Hope is very clever at drawing out all your em ...more

Kate Reilly got pulled into the criminal underworld. This book was exciting and a little 'Magic' is in it as well. I was sucked into Kate's world and I felt like I was right there with this character. This book has another great experience for me and I am so glad when I get to or find such great pieces of work. This is a new author for me but I'm glad I got a chance to read the book and I will read more. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*
