Sin with Me is the first book in a four-book contemporary romance series by New York Times bestselling author, JA Huss, and veteran actor and writer, Johnathan McClain. Each full-length novel will release three weeks apart starting on March 6, 2018.


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’s already been there and back.

She needs to win. He just needs to stop fighting.

Some sins scar your soul so deeply, you’ll never be the same.

But this Devil in disguise might just be the angel he needs to forgive himself.

My Thoughts:

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 series.

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. She has surrounded herself with people who are equally stuck in a downward spiral of bad choices and despair. Her situation seems hopeless, and I found myself feeling oppressed with her burdens as well as desperately wanting to help her.

Tyler, a veteran with a lucrative patent, has it made financially; however, his multiple tours of duty have left him physically and emotionally scarred. His reality sometimes seems like a bad acid trip. Between the copious amounts of alcohol he consumes and his mood-altering prescriptions, Tyler is clearly losing the battle with his demons. “Will the angel of his dreams drag him to the depths of Hell?” is the million-dollar question.

Ms. Huss and Mr. McClain cleverly present their characters. In alternating chapters, Maddie and Tyler give readers their backstory and share the skeletons in their closets. The female-male writing team adds a sense of veracity to the voices of their female and male characters. Maddie is intelligent and hopeful and yet filled with despair.   Tyler is humorous in his meandering musings, and he feels doomed and hopeless in his survivor’s guilt. While it felt like I could pick out which author wrote which character, the writing fits like two perfectly matched puzzle pieces.

True to style, Huss’ story is more than it seems. Sin With Me is a lot of character development and story set up. Readers get a punch to the gut reveal and a tantalizing segue to the next book in the series, Angels Fall (due March 27th). The plot has a great pace and a good balance of suspense and hotness. Some of the scenes are surreal (in the Hunter S. Thompson sort of alternative reality way). All in all, Sin With Me is not only an excellent debut as a new writing team, but a fantastic story with a great hook. I for one, am anxiously awaiting the next installment of Maddie and Tyler’s tale.
