Review

"Hot, Sexy, Steamy and Fun...that's Shelley Bradley all over!!" -- A Romance Review

From the Author

After the great response to BOUND AND DETERMINED, I'm thrilled to announce the follow-up, STRIP SEARCH. I LOVE continuing characters, and I just wasn't ready to let go of Mark at the end of BOUND AND DETERMINED. Besides, I HAD to fix the poor man's life after ruining it! Hope you enjoy!

Nicki DiStefano needs a new dancer for her club if she is going to make it on the strip. She needs a sexy guy who will cause the ladies to melt. So when she hires Mark Sullivan she has to worry about her own melting factor when it comes to the virile dancer. The heat that she feels from him could melt the polar ice capes...and the icy protective wall she has around herself. But will she still feel the same way when she uncovers Mark's secret?

Mark is working undercover for the FBI in what they think is a mobster run strip club. But Nicki seems to innocent despite the fact she might be in bed with the mob. Well, he will get in and do what he has to...hopefully not having to take too much of his clothes off in the process. But, plans are never easily pulled off when you don't count on the burning passion that he feels for the potential bad girl. Will he be able to do his duty and keep his heart out of trouble...or will cupid have other plans?

Ms. Bradley has picked up where "Bound and Determined" ended with her latest effort. Mark and Nicki's attraction is Vegas hot without being Vegas "over the top." The storyline is unique and Ms. Bradley manages to pull this off with quirky characters and steamy attraction. Mark is one of my all time favorite romance hero's and the reader will find themselves drawn into this make believe world until the final page.

Mark Sullivan's brother-in-law asks him to take on a FBI undercover assignment, and the gorgeous alpha CPA finds himself stripping in a suspected club with mafia ties. Nicki DiStefano needs a new dancer to make the cast complete. When they meet at the audition, it is instant attraction for both of them.

This story is erotic and fast paced with more chemistry than you can handle. The suspense is exciting and will keep you guessing till the very end. The author really delivered!!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Mark Sullivan was framed for embezzlement, and while he has been cleared of all charges, the real criminals have not been caught - at least, not all of them. When Mark's brother-in-law, Rafe, offers him the chance to go undercover to prove the Mafia connection in the money laundering scheme that nearly sent him to prison, Mark jumps at the chance.

One look at the owner of the strip club he is to work at undercover, and he knows he will never be able to keep it strictly business. But getting involved with the beautiful and feisty Nicola `Nicki' DiStefano is a bad idea, considering she is one of the prime suspects!

Shelley Bradley's novel, Strip Search, is the sequel to her book Bound and Determined. While the story in Strip Search is greatly enhanced if the reader has already read the first book, Strip Search can easily be enjoyed independently, without the reader being lost or confused. Bradley does a terrific job of giving us the parts of Mark's history from the first book that are pertinent to the story in the sequel so that a new reader would never even realize this book is a sequel.

With the character of Mark Sullivan, Shelley Bradley takes all of the stereotypical ideas of a `nice guy' and successfully squashes them. Apparently, nice guys can also be bad boys! Mark is an anti-hero, tortured by his past, and torn between his feelings for Nicki, his desire to bring the criminals to justice, and his fear of love and commitment.

Nicki is a brassy, independent woman who has finally found her niche after floundering for years. Determined to make her club a success, she has forgone romance for years. There are many women who could identify with Nicki's determination to succeed and the sacrifices she makes towards that end.

This is the first Shelley Bradley book I have ever read, and I am hooked. Mark Sullivan is the ultimate hero! He is hotter than hot! This book had me running to the freezer to cool down! Between an undercover investigation that keeps you riveted and an undeniable passion that keeps you in flames, you will not want to leave your house. You will just want to read more...

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Mark Sullivan has been recruited by his brother-in-law, as a favor to the FBI, to infiltrate a Vegas nightclub. It seems that one of the agents already in place hasn't been heard from in three months and the feds want to send in a civilian to see what is happening. There is just one catch...the nightclub in question is actually a male strip club run by a supposed Mafia boss' niece. Mark's assignment? He is to get close to the niece and then get into her computer; two things Mark knows he is qualified to handle. He is a bit unsure about the male dancer role he will have to assume but agrees anyway. Mark decides that getting close to the niece will not be a hardship since looking at her photograph instantly garnered his attention.

Nicki DiStefano needs a new dancer and she needs him now! The men she has been auditioning just aren't what she is looking for. Figuring the next dancer trying out will be another loser, she settles in for a boring afternoon. Watching Mark walk through the curtain and onto the stage, Nicki can't believe her eyes! Before her is a living, breathing Adonis and her curiosity gets the best of her. Mark Gabriel doesn't have a resume, but what he does have is a wonderful set of pectorals and the best looking dimples she has ever seen. During their interview, Nicki questions Mark on his ability to flirt with the female customers and Mark tries out his skills on Nicki. She almost falls under his spell and finally agrees to see Mark dance. And dance he does! Hot and bothered after the audition ends and desperately trying not to show it, Nicki calmly tells Mark she will be in touch.

Feeling extremely smug, Mark knows he has her. All he has to do now is get Nicki to trust him, and his job is done.
