Tessa “Rain” Donahue believes she’s happy. Dancing at the ‘Happy Valley Cabaret’ gives her a sense of power, Tequila-O’s give her courage, and one-night-stands give her variety. Her nights usually end as the sun rises with her head held high and her high heels in hand. Tessa thinks she has all she’s ever wanted, but when she can’t get a mysterious stranger out of her head, ...more

The beginning and the middle of this book was great….I got into the ‘bad ass’ heroine Tessa – I loved how she knew exactly what she wanted in life and took the chance on Reese. She wasn’t embarrassed about being a stripper and she was forthcoming about her sexual preference

I was blessed to write with Claudia for NaNoWriMo 2013 and get a early peek at Tessa and Reese. Let's just say I wasn't disappointed..and that was BEFORE edits! Claudia tells the sexy tale of Tessa, the take-no-prisoners stripper who truly loves her job, and the mysterious biker boy Reese. Reese has a secret. He's looking for someone to pass his test. Has he found that someone in Tessa? Sex, lies, love, bikes, haunted pasts, and more sex. What more could you want? I am so proud of you Claudia! D ...more

Claudia Bradshaw hit the high notes for sure! Sin For Love is about past and present colliding together. Strippers, bikers and fortune tellers made this book interesting.

Reese Nichols is a biker and custom shop owner who 10 years earlier had his fortune read at a carnival. Madame Miranda told him exactly how to find his soulmate and it changes his life forever.
Tessa Donahue is a burlesque dancer who loves her job and her "Tequila-Os". She had a huge loss in her teens and now lives

*4.5 Seven Sexy Sins Stars*

10 years ago, their paths crossed under terrible circumstances.

Tessa "Rain" Donahue, stripper extraordinaire, is dancing for the fun of it. She loves the faces and ahh's that come as the ice cold water rains down on her. She lives her life free of restrictions, and one night stands are her specialty.

Fate brings Reese Nichols to The Happy Valley Cabaret, and he sets his sights on Tessa. While Reese is in town to set up a new location for his motorcycle

I received this ARC and promised an honest review.


Tessa Donahue also know as Rain at the high class club she dances in is all about having a good time. Love 'em and Leave em' is her motto and feelings don't get involved or so she thinks. In walks Reese, gorgous, tatted, sexy as "sin" man that Tessa can't seem to get enough of. An arrangement, secrets and the power of sins will keep Tessa from falling for Reese. Or will it?

My take

HOLY BLOODY HOT!!! I loved this book. Tessa is my hero, she

ARC received by author in exchange for an honest review.

Sin for Love is a hot and steamy read. Tessa is a burlesque performer, living life believing she was happy and content in her life. Her tequila shots giving her courage but she loved them and gave her warmth in the right places. Liking both men and women, she made a rule not to sleep with anyone she works with. Everything changed the day her eyes caught Reece.

Reece is a HOT owner of many motorcycle shops. He believes in the 'Deadly Seven'

This book is one of those books that once you start you cannot put down until you have finished it, and if you must put it down before you finish then you are thinking of what could be happening in the story or what will happen next. It takes over your thought's as you try to puzzle it out. It is completely unpredictable, fun and a wild ride (on a harley no less)! I enjoyed the characters, the flow of the story and the fact that

What a sizzling hot little number, my e-reader is still smoking! I liked all the characters in the book… but I LOVED Tessa! Confident, strong and genuine…that’s Tessa. The fact that she’s a stripper and loves everything about it… it’s not just because it’s what pays the bills or she fell in with the “wrong” crow. Oh NO…Tessa’s a “naughty girl”, but with a heart of gold. And yes… I liked Reese as well, but everyone else just kinda fell in the shadows a little bit for me because of the awesomeness ...more

I really don't know how to write this review. I know I have said this in the past, but this book is one of those books that anything I want to say about this book would be a major spoiler for the story. So I apologize now if this review is on the short and vague side. I'll start by saying that I truly enjoyed this book. It kept my interest all the way through and was interesting enough that

I loved this book from the opening dialogue in the first couple of chapters all the way to the very end. I was very surprised by this book. By now you all know I read for pure fun and enjoyment. I love a book that grabs me from the very beginning and says you are not putting me down until you are finished. This was my first Claudia Bradshaw book and will not be my last. I Loved Tessa aka Rain. I wish I could be so bold and in charge of my sexuality.

Tessa & Reese. While the sexuality of this book may not be my cup of tea, that doesn't mean I don't enjoy a good plot, real characters, and twists & turns. Despite the flaws and secrets Tessa hides behind, she has a story. And then she meets Reese. Her life and world are turned upside down, all the while trying to embrace life but questioning what is real and fiction. True love? Fairy tales? Do they exist for her?? She has an amazing family and friends. A confidence about her! Reece is w ...more

I'm so going to end up reading this book again in the future I loved every minute of this journey. This is by far an amazing 2 person POV that everyone should give a chance to. I am just head over heels with Tessa and Reese's story that I find that I wasn't able to get enough of them. That's saying a lot.

Claudia Bradshaw has done it again, she had me on the edge of my seat waiting for things to happen. She writes in multiple POV, so we know both sides of the story. However; the characters don't, so it's delicious to be in on the big secret as we wait for it to be revealed. To know the thoughts and feelings in the minds of the characters can also turn up the heat as we wait for the actions to make those sexy thoughts and dreams a reality. I met Marcus in Sin for Love, he's Reese

I was given this book as a prize. And so glad! I enjoyed the chemistry between Reece and Rain. The storyline was catchy and flowed very well. I started and finished in one day, Didn't want to put it down, was curious about Ruth and her story very surprised when I found out. All In All a good read, only down side: Wasn't long enough

Tessa a.k.a. Rain was a freak & I love that she loved sex and was proud of it, but that was also her defense mechanism to not open her heart so she kept it purely sex, sex & more sex until Reese.

Reese was the man that could handle Tessa sexually & emotionally but he was keeping a secret from her, what that secret was you'll just have to read the the book to find out.

Reading this book kept me hot & horny plus I learned of few things. Reese & Tessa were connected in many ways y

Sin for Love takes you on a ride through an emotional twist and turns of events that will keep you turning the page. Reese a motorcycle, bad-ass is sweet, sexy and such a gentleman most of the time.I wanted to shake him for some of the things he'd done to Tessa. Now, Tessa is a strong willed lady, but there's so much a girl can take from a guy. I was screaming at Reese and crying with Tessa. A good story and well written.

It would look better on the floor...
This was my first Claudia Bradshaw read, where the hell have I been? I absolutely loved her writing style, especially the witty internal dialogue that Tessa kept up throughout the book. I literally laughed out loud at her sarcastic wit and hilarious thoughts. The chemistry between Tessa & Reese was high octane, you might need a fire extinguisher for your Kindle. The support characters were fun too, and I look forward to seeing more of them in future books.

This was a very unique love story. Girl is a stripper. Boy meets girl at her club. Crazy, hot, sweet romance ensues. The weird part? The girl isn’t broken, she is a happy, slightly sex-loving girl from an intact family. Excellent friends. But a loss as a teenager has shaped her views on love and relationships- so no strings is her way. Until she meets Reese. He gets her, and works to show her how good it could be between them. Yet his private agenda could ruin it all.

Received this book as a gift from a party.

Sticking to my usual rules - I'm not gonna give anything away.

So - let's start with writing style - good. It flicks between the heroine and heroes pov. Every time the pov changed - it was headed by a name. Made me feel a little thick that I needed to be told but I know some people do struggle reading pov swap books. So I'll overlook that. Written well. Not many errors.

Storyline - well laid out and the writer knew what journey she wanted to take us on.

The story had me up way past my bed time. I couldn't put it down and while it took me a few pages to understand the idea behind the book, the writing and the descriptions and to be blunt, the sex kept me turning the pages.

While this could be read as a stand alone novel, I would highly recommend reading Sin For Love prior to reading this as character development was strong in the first book, and well because I loved it ;-)

This was a good book. Yes I know I have a "but" but I will get to that later.

This is Alayna and Marcus's story. Alayna wants to break free of her "little kid" or "kid sister" shell. And what better way to do it than with your crush, brother's best friend, and serious bad boy Marcus. Marcus wants Alayna but he is resisting temptation because you just don't cross the bro code. But he can't get her out of his head or mind. When temptation becomes to much and he succumbs, he kno
Kelly Anne  O'Connor
This book can be read as a stand alone but it's does follow the same group of friends from Sin for Love and starts with the same prediction from the fairground fortune teller only this time it's Marcus's prediction we hear.
Marcus is a successful night club owner but there are secrets that only thoses nearest to him know, when he catches the eye of Alayna he believes the beast within him will ruin her, and she is also the little sister of his best friends soul mate - that means off limits !
