    One thought on “Strip Search”

    1. Rating: 3.5 / 5Before reading this one, I heard that a lot of people liked it less than the previous book, Bound and Determined, but for me, I found them to be fairly equal. Both were decent booksabove average, probably, but didn't entirely capture me.Summary:In the previous book, Mark Sullivan is a mostly absent character who is in jail, suspected of embezzlement. His sister works to prove he is innocent and in the process discovers Mark's wife had set him up to take the fall for her actions. M [...]

    2. I am a huge fan of the works by Shayla Black. Her books can be quite addictive when you are looking for an erotica to read with lots of sex and suspense. I read the first book in this series over a year ago and finally got my hands on a copy of this one. I don't know why it took me so long to buy it, but I decided to finally sit down and read it.We are introduced to Mark -- who happened to be the heroine's brother from the first book -- when Rafe comes to him with info on how to take down a mafi [...]

    3. This book is the sequel to her book, "Bound and Determined." I didn't like this book as well as some of her others. I much prefer the books in her "Wicked Lovers" series. This one moved rather slowly and was too talky. I also had difficulty relating to characters. Perhaps, because, for a relationship/romance-book, it was more male-centered rather than female character-centered. I found myself disliking this male character (Mark) more and more as he continuously would have sexual relations with N [...]

    4. STRIP SEARCH by Shayla BlackThis was one hot-tastic story.The description of the book I am listing below is from the back jacket of the book. I'm adding it because I believe the one on the page does not depict this story. If the feds want to nail a thug with ties to the Mafia, they need a slick trap to catch him. Enter Mark Sullivan, who’s totally built for the job—to go undercover as a male stripper in the Vegas club where the mobsters works. The perk? The club’s owner. Sure, she’s got [...]

    5. I did not even finish this book, I found it rather boring compared to decadent and its cheesy plot was not my favourite.

    6. ** 3.5 stars ** Shayla Black is an author's who's been recommended to me time and again as I've ventured more into erotic romance. I own several of her books, including the first in this series. It was time to see if I would fall in love like many other readers.I liked Strip Search, quite a bit. The writing was good. The characters were challenging and fully-developed. The sex was crazy hot. Strip Search read as romantic suspense, as well as erotic romance, which is a good thing because I am cur [...]

    7. Strip Search, by Shayla Black, was a phenomenal and titillating novel. Nicki DiStephano is the main character of this thriller/suspense/romance novel. Nicki has been on her own since her parents dies and her uncle, Pietro, is the head of the Gamalini mafia ring, but she doesn't know it. Nicki is frustrated because she has sunk all her money into a strip joint and her uncle helped bank role her, so now he thinks he can do what he wants. He puts one of his goons, Blade Bocelli, in as an accountant [...]

    8. This is a very good whodunit without a murder. The theme is learning to trust. Mark was introduced in Bound and Determined to which this is the sequel. I feel one should read the two of them one after the other, although this also works well as a stand-alone. This book appears to be set roughly a year after the action in the first story. My edition lists the author as "Shayla Black writing as Shelley Bradley."Nicki is a nightclub owner seemingly unaware that someone in her club is using the oper [...]

    9. 3.5 stars-read as a rerelease STRIP SEARCH is the second storyline in Shayla Black’s (aka Shelley Bradley) Sexy Capers contemporary romance, mystery series. This is Mark Sullivan’s story and we first me Mark in Bound and Determined as his sister was struggling to prove his innocence in a multi million dollar theft at the bank where he worked.Strip Search begins approximately a year or more after Bound and Determined. Our hero Mark is now divorced from his wife, his sister is married to the m [...]

    10. What a ride!Shelley Bradley knows how to write intense sensual and emotional love-stories like no other. She takes you on a journey of emotions and feelings that leaves you wondering afterwards what the h.ll just hit you.And for this book I'm not even talking about the smoldering love scenes, the fast-paced and suspenseful plot or that yummy alpha male Mark who goes undercover as a stripper and the feisty and smartass owner of the strip joint. Together they just make the dialogues combust in fla [...]

    11. HOT! Love Shayla blacks erotic suspense. This was 2nd in the sexy capers series (Bound & Determined #1). Mark and Nikki were great strong characters. Both had issues to get past but couldn't stay away from each other. I loved the emotional and physical pull between them both, sucked me right in. Of course I was loving the romance and also wanting to shake them both to wake up and get their shit together!!!It had suspense, great twists that had me surprised, some laughs, (yes I did tear up), [...]

    12. This book was interesting if not a little predictable. I enjoyed the storyline. It is classic Shayla Black. Lots of suspense, and lots of steamy scenes. Nicki and Mark have incredible chemistry from the jump and while they both have their reservations about the other they can't seem to fight it. When things look their worse Mark makes some harsh and rash judgements that he has to later figure out how to make right. I really enjoyed watching these two make their way to their happily ever after. 4 [...]

    13. Not as entertaining as Bound and Determined, but still a great story and well done! However, I'm not sure Mark had to be THAT hung-up with his past and the ending was a bit too close to to Bound and Determined for my taste. I dont like to feel like I'm reading books that have been 'cut and pasted' together.

    14. Follow up from previous book - Kerry & Rafe's story. This one's about Kerry's framed but proven innocent brother - Mark Sullivan!! A character that got totally screwed in the first book. Well, credit to the author, he's got his HEA despite all the things that happened to him. Hooray!!

    15. I was going to give this 3 stars, but I couldn't because the guy in this is such a stupida**!!! He does eventually realize what an idiot he's being, sooooo.Hmmm. Nope--still 2 stars.

    16. Samantha's booksOh boy I want to see the stripper up close. Their description of him was good enough to get my fantasies going.

    17. This book was OK. After reading the first book, it was hard for me to believe that Mark was so good looking, but i went with it.

    18. Berkley Heat is re-releasing one of Shayla Black's most sexy novels. Strip Search is the second book in the Sexy Capers series written under the pen name, Shelley Bradley. With a steamy new cover and just as much passion and romantic chemistry as before, this is a novel full of excitement and surprises. Black's trademark sexy banter and dialogue skills are at their peak. When Mark Sullivan goes undercover to nail a mafia kingpin, his new job as a stripper in a Vegas club has more than one perk. [...]

    19. If you read my reviews you can see that I almost never give anything less than 4 stars. Now, I'm breaking this pattern with a book by an author whom I love & adore(Shayla Black writing as Shelley Bradley), and whose books I have been consistently giving 4 & 5 stars. And here's the reason why Strip Search earned a 3 star from me. I love having a tormented & tortured duo (or trio) in lust and love. I loved the premise of Strip Search and the possibilities that the characters' backgroun [...]

    20. I didn't really like the first book - about Mark's sister who is an idiot - but I liked this one better because the relationship between the main couple is more equal. Mark had been framed by his wife for embezzling in the last book (we never actually met him). In this book he's now working as an investigator with his brother-in-law and goes undercover to figure out a money laundering scheme at a strip club. The Feds aren't sure who is involved so everyone's a suspect - including our heroine Nic [...]

    21. Being undercover has never been so hotMark Sullivan is asked by the feds to catch a thug with ties to the mafia. They ask him to go undercover as a male stripper, in a club where the guy works. Mark agrees, though he doesn’t like the thought of it, and heads off to Las Vegas. The perk of the job, the owner of the club Nicola DiStefano.Nicola is all about business. She knows the in’s and outs of the trade. Wanting to make a name for herself, she starts a strip club. When Mark falls into her l [...]

    22. About the book:If the Feds want to nail a Mafia kingpin, they need a trap. Enter Mark Sullivan, totally built for the job-to go undercover as a male stripper in the mobster's Vegas club. The club's owner, Nicki, is an unexpected perk. But Mark and Nicki have more in common than sizzling sexual chemistry. They each have their share of secrets, and with the mob closing in, what gets exposed is as irresistible as it is dangerous.Review: I loved the fact that Mark had his story as well. He was not a [...]

    23. Author Shelley Bradley aka author Shayla Black (Wicked Ties, Decadent - erotica)Book spine says "Romantic Suspense" -- but imo it's more accurately "Erotic Suspense"!Wow, can this woman write scorching *hot* steamy sex scenes!!! Lora Leigh (much as I love her) has nothin' on Shelley/Shayla!"The Feds want to nail a Mafia kingpin, so they plan a trap. Enter Mark Sullivan, CPA/financial investigator, who'll go undercover as a male stripper in the mobster's Vegas club.The perk? Nicola DiSteafano, th [...]

    24. Shayla Black is one of my top 20 Authors. I read a bit more than most people and there are a lot of authors I love and I can safely say that Shayla Black's books just keep getting better and better.This book is a continuation of Sexy Capers series and another great read. Mark Sullivan goes undercover as a male stripper in a club owned by Nicki in order to unmask who's behind a money laundry scheme, and if he so happens to take down the man who ruined his marriage and his life, well that's an add [...]

    25. I just finished this book tonight and I am already sad. I hate when a great story comes to an end. I always find myself invested in the characters and I love when their stories continue so I can feel like they are still a part of my world. Sad, I know, but true.Shayla Black does a great job in continuing the stories of her characters. In Strip Search she continues the story of Kerry and Rafe from Bound and Determined but in Strip Search she focuses on Kerry’s brother, Mark. Mark is bruised fro [...]

    26. This book is AWESOME!!! I finished this one today it took 1 day to read! Of course it's hot!!! But Mark **sigh** I love this man Shayla has convinced me that someone just like him actually roams this earth. That being said this book has a wonderful story line, plot, and characters written SUPERBLY!!! This story was actually very deep touching, emotionally gripping, suspensful, and a little scary at times. Very surprising twists and turns as well. Some funny moments that defiantely had me laughin [...]

    27. This was one of the more repetitive books I had read. The storyline had promise and there were lots of sex scenes. The sex scenes were hot the first time or two, but after that they became repetitive as well. They rock each other's worlds, they're in bliss, then he leaves and she gets upset. Two days later - same thing. And the characters were VERY repetitive emotionally. They kept thinking the same thoughts over and over. I think this book would have been better had it been about half the lengt [...]

    28. I really hate giving any book by Shayla Black only three stars. But I'll be honest. It took me forever to finish this book. I can usually read a book in two days. This one took more than a month. I just couldn't get into it. But I never not finish a book and I wanted to start the new Gideon Cross book so I just had to finish this. It really doesn't get good until about page 300. I just felt like even though Nicki and Mark had chemistry and great sex, he was so insecure and caught up in how his e [...]
