Sin with Me is the first of four books in the Original Sin series, this is also the first release of the writing duo of JA Huss and Johnathan McClain. As a reader who has devoured all things Julie, this was a new experience and one that I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to get. It was erotic, melancholy and stunning. The first book builds the suspense and leaves you craving more.

Everybody’s damaged in their own way, it’s just at what level that is the question. Maddie and Tyler are both suffering from trauma that has left them lost in this world. They’re living to just exist. That is until they meet each other and think maybe there might be something bigger. Or is it another opportunity to get knocked back down?

Nothing like reading a book that makes you take a look at your own life. Jesus. This book. Despite causing some self reflection, it was also pretty funny. Tyler’

Two broken people in a city fueled by sin.
Maddie Clayton isn't looking to be saved. She knows the only person you can count on is yourself. Her moral compass might not point true North these days--but at least she's still standing.
The military taught Tyler Bell about loyalty. Being there for your brothers is the only thing that matters--but when it mattered most, he wasn't.
She's got a ticket straight to Hell. He
Oh my gawd!!! J.A. Huss has always done crazy unlike any other but now with Johnathan McClain they take crazy to a whole new level!!!

Maddie’s life hasn’t turned out the way she had thought or planned for it. She’s stripping for a living and she’s got a mobster breathing down her neck even as every endeavor she attempts fails. Life has dumped all over her and there’s not a lot of motivation left for anything other than continuing on in the same vein she’s been traveling for the last several year

There is pervasive “alchemy” within and without this scintillating, angst-filled, volatile story of two shattered souls on a collision course for one another. “Alchemy” is the descriptive word that the dark hero, Tyler uses when explaining, “That thing one person has with another person that they can’t explain. When people call it chemistry, they’re wrong, of course. Chemistry is science and finding someone you can stand being around, that’s alchemy.”

“Two broken people in a city fuelled by sin.”

Maddie is a stripper in sin city, Las Vegas. This was never in her life plan, she had way bigger dreams to chase but this is where she is nonetheless. She has been to college and plans to be successful but getting there is a rocky path. A steady income stripping means she can pay her rent while she tries to make her next business idea a reality. Lap dancing for drunk, horny men is the only way for now.

Wow! Just. Holy fucking wow.

Yep. This is intense. Like, super fucking intense. I don't have adequate words to describe how I am feeling after finishing this wild ride. And oh, my god. This is one wild ride. One crazy, intense, wild, fucking ride.

I don't know what rock Johnathan McClain has been hiding under (just kidding, he hasn't been under a rock, he's been out in the open writing and doing other things, but that isn't the point here), but holy fucking shit where has he been all this time?

‘I know that she’s not really my angel, and that we’re in the back of a filthy fucking strip club, and that everything in me right now that feels hopeful and warm is a fucking lie. I know that. But I don’t give a shit. Because there is something there.’

We devoured Sin With Me by JA Huss and Johnathan McClain in one sitting. It was fast paced, dark, hot and twisted with a stellar humorous sarcasm threaded through it. The writing was brilliant and this partnership was flawless and seemed effortles

If you follow my reviews it is no secret to you that I read a lot of JA Huss. Her stories, her writing style, her world building all just resonate with me and I feel like I've found a kindred spirit in this author and maybe she really "gets me". I don't think I'm alone with these thoughts, I think a lot of her readers feel the same way, and she's created a small (12,000 member) Facebook group for her avid readers who devour her books. It feels like a family in there. Well, Julie has introduced a ...more

BAM!! That’s how you get it done. Talk about starting a series off with a BANG!!
Sinful, delicious, mysterious, intriguing, and HOT, JA Huss and Johnathan McClain delivered everything I look for in a novel.

Tyler and Maddie are two broken people who just meshed and I loved them both. The more you read, the more the puzzle pieces start coming together and it’s like crazy addicting.

This has in no way influenced my voluntary review, which is honest and unbiased *Sin With Me is dark, twisted, hot, sinful and fast-paced.

“She is a fallen angel and I am sin itself.”

Now THAT is how you begin a damn series! WOW! Just wow! I’m amazed! I’m stunned! I’m blown away by the magnitude that this book affected me! Maddie and Tyler are an absolute MYSTERY, but they are also being weighed down by certain demons. They are indeed broken in their own way, but when their paths cross, there is no going back. The mystery begins to unfold and the rollercoaster ride of passion begins!

Wow, will this author ever run out of brilliant ideas for her stories? It appears not because she's only gone and done it again and this time as a collaboration with a Hollywood star!!! You heard right.

This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
The Mistress of Twisty has met her match in the Rabbi of Raunch and together they are spinning a world of dreams, love and loyalty in the tawdry alleys and strip clubs of Vegas in their all new Original Sin series. It's rare that two writing voices blend together is such seamless harmony. They carry one another to new, uncharted territory through their main characters, a broken vet with a raging case of PTSD and pockets full of what he believes is

HOLY….. Cannoli…. I’m at a loss for words.

Everyone who knows me knows I love Julie A. Huss’ writing. I buy every book on release day and gift her books to family and friends often. Now I can admit that I felt a little nervous when she announced that she is going to partner with Johnathan McClain on a book series. Every day until the book appeared on my Kindle; I braced myself that a partnership would change the type of stories and, more importantly, Julie’s writing style. Wow did I worry for not

JA Huss and Johnathan McClain are a powerhouse writing duo that intoxicated readers right from the start.

Sin With Me is the first book in a four-book, romantic suspense series from the new writing team of J.A. Huss and Johnathan McClain. Sin With Me beautifully sets up what is sure to be a scintillating four-act story.

Maddie, whose stage name is Scarlet, is pretty, petite, and smart, but she has a knack for making bad decisions that have staying power. What is she doing with that degree from LVNU? She is doing nothing lucrative and nothing prestigious. Personal tragedy in her past haunts her daily.

In this exciting first book in The Original Sin Series, Julie Huss teams up with Johnathan Mccclain to bring some serious heat and suspense to their debut pairing. They introduce us to a Las Vegas romance like none other.

Here we meet Tyler and Maddie. Both have a burning desire to conquer demons of the past, right the wrongs, overcome painful loss and try and move forward to better lives. There are two clear voices heard throughout. Tyler's deflection of his life situations with wit and humor t
What. A. Ride! And to think, this is only just the beginning. We’ve barely scratched the surface of Tyler and Maddie’s story, which also means—there’s going to be so much more juicer, hotter, dirtier and more heart-stopping things coming up in the next books in the series than what we just witnessed here!

In Sin With Me, we’re introduced to Tyler Morgan and Maddie Clayton who are two characters so utterly broken, damaged and trapped in their own nightmares. You’ll feel deep in your bones just how

One of my favorite authors, Julie Huss, has teamed up with audiobook narrator and actor Johnathan McClain to write a series of romance books. Between a best-selling romance author and a romance audiobook narrator, I'd say they have the credentials to give us something good.

And, based on book 1 in their Original Sin series, it's not just going to be good - it's going to be great.

Great character development, distinct voices, a solid plot line, and enough little reveals to keep me riveted, Sin with Me has me charmed and anxious for the next installment!

Omigoodness! You know, I've read and reviewed nearly everything Huss has written and it was starting to get difficult to come up with something fresh to say about her work. I mean, she gives good stories...good characters. And then. And then she gives me a break. She decides to collaborate with Johnathan McClain. And

So I’m not gonna lie, I was really nervous when JA Huss said she was going to co-write a book with someone... I have always loved her books and was unsure if it would be the same ... let me tell you, Johnathan brings something to the table that I didn’t even realize was missing! They have brought us a book full of desperation, anguish, longing, destruction and enough lust and passion to have you squirming in your seat having hot flashes.

Two broken people meet up in Las Vegas. Maddie is down on her luck when she's forced to work as a stripper to pay off a debt and she tries to keep to the strict rule of just stripping, no sex, no touching from the customers until the night that ex-military Tyler walks in to the strip joint. These two broken souls share something much deeper that night, a connection that neither can explain. Loved it, Tyler and his inner voice is hilarious and the characters just gel even if at times Maddie comes ...more

Wow, what did I just read? This was not what I was expecting at all! It was so good that I just kept turning pages until I was done, and then I kinda sat there all shell-shocked! This book is told in dual POV, and it flowed perfectly for me.

I was completely drawn in and taken by Tyler Morgan. I mean this guy has some serious issues going on, but he still managed to make me laugh throughout the entire book. The inner monologue that he constantly has looping through his head, completely had me la

I'm fairly new to JA Huss's work. I do not read teasers and knew nothing about the backstory of the writers that cause them to become a writing duo (until now).

The beginning was a little slow for me, but by 30% I could not put it down. Both main characters are incredibility broken. They have lost their way in life and are just living comfortably numb in their existence. It is until their first encounter that a spark, something so familiar, so intriguing that makes them feel something they
