Overview

Sinner Takes All: A Memoir of Love and Porn by Tera Patrick, Carrie Borzillo

The world's #1 porn star strips down about life, love, and everything in between.

Tera Patrick wasn't always Tera Patrick. Once upon a time she was a gangly, teenaged bookworm named Linda Ann Hopkins, obsessed with serial killers and Marilyn Monroe and determined to make men all over the world one day desire her. And she succeeded: Today she sits atop the porn world and runs her own multimillion-dollar empire.

Sinner Takes All is a sexy and deeply personal memoir in which Tera bares all about baring all. Tera discusses leaving home as a teen to work as an international fashion model, losing her virginity at age fourteen to a man twice her age, working as a nurse at a senior citizen's home, her on- and off-screen sexual escapades, and the emotional obstacles that she's had to overcome, including a strained relationship with her mother, deadbeat boyfriends, and a suicide attempt that led to a stint in a locked-down psych ward.
An honest and naked look at a one-of-a-kind life, Sinner Takes All is a riveting memoir of the making of a modern sex goddess.

I was actually surprised I couldn't put this book down. My husband also enjoyed me reading it because I was pretty "excited" when reading. I really do recommend.

I bought this book thinking it would be good from reviews but I was definitely wrong! If you want to read 280 pages of someone who has her husband do everything for her career and her cry about all her past bad moves buy this book. A chapter about her dog being lost for three weeks? Give me a break.

I love reading biographies and this one was one of the best I have read by far! I loved that she was very open about herself and the porn industry. I really learned a lot about her and the kind of person she is. I met her about 7 years ago I wish I could meet her again to tell her how great her book was and how I appreciate what a strong person and woman she has beoome.

I never had a doubt that I would read this book; its fascinating...funny...sad...and to the point. Ms Patrick brought to the pages a life that Im sure some females think about, but would never venture into..

I love a smoking hot woman with a good sense of humor. The only problem is she's already hitched.

So real. I could appreciate that. She really opened up and invited us to see her at her worst and at her best. Such a strong woman.

Linda Ann Hopkins,dares to enliven the unsuspecting reader to all her True-To-Life vibrant detail ie: sordid run of insecurity to feed on her implicit need for male sexual attentiveness or just fleshing out beyond the reach of belief on her roller-coaster vunerability of a young rebel into a maturing woman with miss hits towards procuring her feats into a felt better horizon of accomplishments.

This was an okay read. It felt more like a way for the author to get even with people then a behind the scenes look at the adult industry. She did go into detail about her upbringing which was interesting to find out. There were also some glaring typing errors. I was interested in this book because I wrote the novel BOX CUTTER KILLER about a web cam stripper who has a difficult background herself.

Great read. Not a fluff piece. She Takes responsibility for all her actions, and bares all (no pun intended) about her life.
