My 4 star review of the Art of Sin
I have never read Alexandrea Weis’ books before so I was unsure if I would like her writing. But DAMN that cover was hot, and the blurb intrigued me, and I am so glad I did!
Grady is the hero of the story- and he is smoking hot. He has a great body, but that’s not what he is known for. He was a Wall Street worker, but then got laid off. He is trying to get another job, but that isn’t easy in this market. So he reverts to what he knows- stripping. He did that in college to make money. So he starts to travel and do small stripper shows. When he comes to the town of New Orleans!
This is where he meets Allison, the heroine. Obviously she has a kick ass name, because I have the same one! I really like her no nonsense attitude. When Grady meets Allison Wagner, all bets are off, because he loves a challenge. And you could tell there was a serious attraction and sexual chemistry between the two. Allison is Grady’s landlord and you just don’t go there- but he was relentless!!
Grady wants out of stripping, back to a normal job, he wants to settle down- maybe with Allison- but she is hiding a secret. And it could very well mess up his well laid plans. The passion between the both of them for each other, and just the passion they had for life was palpable and I loved it.
I also loved the suspense level of this book! So not only was the plot spot on, the setting was broody and full of questions, and it was totally steamy! What’s not to love? I received an advanced copy in exchange for my honest review!
