Grady Paulson spends his nights pleasing a lot of women.
The bump and grind of being a male stripper is getting old for Grady, and when his cross-country tour takes him to New Orleans everything changes. He meets Allison Wagner; a smart, successful woman who is all wrong for him, but Grady just loves a challenge.
Sparks fly, and soon Allison has Grady rethinking his future. He wants to get out of the stripping game and settle down, but Allison is hiding a devastating secret that could threaten his plans.
Will Grady finally break free from his seedy, sequined world or will her troubled past forever seal their fate?
On Bourbon Street, temptation is the name of the game for all those who practice the art of sin.

I am a little bit torn in my review of this book. I quite enjoyed the previous books I read by Alexandrea Weis but there was just something about this one that didn't click for me. The story line in itself was quite interesting but a big turn off for me was the existence of cheating. I quite liked Grady and Allison as characters but some of Allison's decisions were definitely against my moral code and that kind of killed the enjoyment of the story for me. But if you don't mind reading books like that, I can guarantee that you will love the book.

Grady is quite the pantie-melting hot character. Being a dancer requires of him to have a hart stopping body but in addition to that he is quite smart, somewhat dominant, protective and quite the treat between the sheets :) He definitely has moves both in and outside of the bedroom. After his not that perfect past, he is somewhat lost and doesn't believe that he deserves to be happy. A big part of that changes ones he meets Al and he finally finds his place in the world, the place he can call home.

Similarly to Grady, Al is lost in her everyday life and her past. Even though she regrets some of the decisions she's taken she doesn't know how to solve her problems. She is quite reserved in her dealings with men and that doesn't exactly change once she meets Grady. She becomes even tougher to crack exactly because she is attracted to him. I definitely don't agree with quite a few of Al's decisions in her life and I think that's primarily what made the book not that good for me. The other thing that put me off a little bit was that Al was older that Grady. I usually don't mind age difference (of course reasonable ones) but I prefer the man to be the older one. It's just the type of stories I prefer reading.

4,5 stars-- THE ART OF SIN is the latest contemporary, adult, erotic romance storyline by Alexandrea Weis. The story focuses on thirty two year old former financial advisor and male stripper Grady Paulson, and nurse anesthetist Allison Wagner-a woman ten years Grady’s senior but the woman who calls to Grady’s soul. Grady travels the country wherever the work takes him and his latest contract finds our hero in New Orleans where his agent has set him up at Allison Wagner’s rooming house. What ensues is an intense seduction of Allison Wagner by the new tenant in apartment C.

Alexandrea Weis pulls the reader in a breathtaking, emotional and provocative storyline where the New Orlean’s nightlife takes center stage. From strip clubs to plastic surgery, crooked cops and dirty nightclub owners New Orleans offers up the seedy side of the French Quarter where gangs rule the nights and regret rules the day. We follow along as Grady Paulson seduces the not only his landlord but the patrons at the Flesh Factory with his moves, his mind, and his heart.

THE ART OF SIN is a story of romance and love; intrigue and suspense; friendship and loss. There are moments of anguish and heartbreak followed by the realization that life is fleeting with no promise of tomorrow. Alexandrea Weis will pull you in and never let go.

HASH(0x9d5c484c) out of 5 stars Rediscover the joy of life and celebrate it. May 1 2015
By Gloria Herrera - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Anybody can take off their clothes, but only a stripper could turn such a sin into an art." - Mary Hightower, stripper on Bourbon Street, New Orleans

"llusion is the first of all pleasures."- Oscar Wilde

No matter how you describe, stripping is an art and it is meant titillates the senses of the viewer. Whether it is the illusion created by the stripper or the primal desire elicited by viewing a partially naked body, stripping is an art. The Art of Sin.

Our characters Grady and Allison are somewhat lost in the seedier reality of life. It is the result of all the obstacles and losses they have experienced in their lives. Betrayal, suicide, overdoses, abandonment are but a few. They both have lost so much in their lives that they have become very cynical about "happily ever after" and trust.

Grady is spending his life stripping for a living because he does not know what else to do with his life. After his divorce, he has been drifting through life without an anchor or without any desire to think about his future. A graduate of Yale, he lost his job as a financial advisor during the economic downturn. Now, he has no idea what he is worth or what he is qualified to do in life. All he knows in that he is judged every time he tells people he is a stripper and treated like he is scum.

Set in New Orleans, our author Alexandrea Weis paints with words the world few get to experience. These are the people at the edge of life as we normally know it. Those who have settled for getting by making a living entertaining by using their bodies to amuse our whims.

Although this story is dramatic and exposes the underbelly of our society, it is also uplifing. The triumph of love and rediscovering the joy of life is to be celebrated.

"...the true art of sin, my friend, knowing how far you are willing to go before you know you are about to go over the edge."

HASH(0x9d5c48a0) out of 5 stars 4.5 out of 5 ‘Spicy lovin’ New Orleans style’ Stars May 1 2015
By Aubrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I absolutely loved the story of Grady and Allison. It really had a feeling of realism to it. Grady is an out of work Wall Street worker who got laid off when the economy went bad. So what the heck does he do now? It’s not like the job market is easy. Thank goodness he’s smokin’ hot and has a great body because he reverts back to his college days of stripping to make a living. He’s a traveling stripper, doing shows for short periods of time and then moving onto the next town. Next stop….New Orleans.

At first meeting, you could tell that there was serious physical attraction between Grady and Allison but because Allison is Grady’s landlord she doesn’t even go there. Allison also has this cocky attitude that kinda made me what to just tell her to shut up. Grady’s relentless pursuit of Allison was just purely awesome and the chemistry between the two was almost too much for my e-reader to handle. Whoowee!!

Allison was super relatable with her ‘woman scorned’ attitude. And Grady was also easy to relate to because of his job loss and ‘what the eff do I do now?’ portion of his life. The passion was smokin’ hot and the intensity level gets ramped up by suspenseful events –that WILL NOT be divulged in this review. (Hehehe)
Definitely a great read and worthy of your most precious free time. C’mon. Take a chance already.

Happy Reading!!

HASH(0x9d5c4cd8) out of 5 stars Grab a seat near the stage and meet Grady May 3 2015

The first thing you should do is ignore the old saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover." That is an excellent place to start in Alexandrea Weis's new book, The Art of Sin. Her beautiful cover is intriguing and if you see a smoking hot man, you have just scratched the surface of this book. I have read several of Ms. Weis's books and was honored to be one of the first to read Grady and Al's story. I admire the author's style and how she weaves her stories against the backdrop of one of my favorite cities, New Orleans. I love that her plots have intricate twists and interesting characters that often are connected in unexpected ways. Ms. Weis writes strong female characters and beautifully flawed men and women. As in prior books, the reader is drawn into the French Quarter and its culture. However, this is the first book that has given me a glimpse of the world of male strippers.

I will be the first to say I love Grady. As a college student Grady danced to pay his way through school. The events of 911 sent the young investment consultant back into that world, destroying his marriage in the process. Given his wife's infidelity, Grady has had a string of meaningless one night stands, thinking he can never trust a woman again. He travels the country as a guest stripper in clubs and lands in New Orleans and in Alison Wagner's apartment house. Weary of traveling and the groping of female fans, Grady longs to leave the road. When he meets his landlady he believes she may be the key to changing his life. Allison on the other hand tries to discourage Grady at every turn. The banter between the two is natural and entertaining.

As with all of Ms. Weis's books, the road to HEA is a complex twisted journey. The readers emotions are all over in this book. There were times I wanted to smack both Grady and Al. There is humor, angst, passion and heartache, but at the heart of the book is love. So grab a drink from the bar, pull up a chair near the stage and enjoy The Art of Sin.

Set in the second city of sin, because let's face it, the decadence of Vegas outweighs the sin any other city could possibly boast, The Art of Sin takes us on a trip to the underbelly of the Big Easy. As always, Alexandrea Weis' descriptions were detailed, transporting me into the midst of the old world splendor that I assume actually comprises the French Quarter of New Orleans. I found myself wondering if any of the bars or clubs mentioned in this book actually exist in N'awlins.

One thing I didn't get from this book that I was expecting was some detailed Magic Mike style dancing. We didn't really see much of Grady on stage, but we did see a fair amount of behind the scenes action at the club. Honestly, that was probably more entertaining than descriptions of the dancing would have been anyway.

This story is told in first person, mostly from Grady's perspective, but we get a few glimpses from Little Al's POV too, which helps to give us a more rounded view of the events.

What I really liked about this story is that it was a slow burn romance and not a sprint to the bedroom. The relationship between Grady and Al took time to develop, and she didn't make anything easy for him. Rather Al made Grady work for every inch he gained into her life, and her bedroom. When she did finally let him in, it was quite steamy.

If you enjoy slow burn, tantalizing romances, this is definitely the book for you.

HASH(0x9d5c709c) out of 5 stars Great Book! May 2 2015
By I Love To Read - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was gifted this book by Obsessed by Books for an honest review. Having grown up only 2.5 hours from NOLA, my husband & I try to take at least one weekend trip a year. That being said, we've experienced the sight of the "seedy" side of life on Bourbon St. and other parts of the French Quarter. Alexandrea Weis nailed it. (It pays having grown up there!) I appreciated the struggles both Grady and Allison endured, and cheered them on as they very cautiously tested the waters of a relationship.
