' This fast-reading memoir whips form knowing to naïve and back as it tracks its plucky protagonist from ugly duckling school days to international adult superstardom.' - The Dallas Morning News 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, has graced the cover of every major men's magazine, and runs her own multimillion-dollar empire. More important, she did it on her own terms. Sinner Takes All is a sexy and deeply personal memoir in which Tera bares all about baring all. Tera discusses losing her virginity at age fourteen to a man twice her age while working as a international fashion model, working as a nurse at a senior citizen's home, her on- and off-screen sexual escapade, clawing her way to the peak of porn, the emotional obstacles that she's had to overcome, and how love and marriage fit into the triple-X world. 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. 'Orgasms, like laughter, can be faked, but it's better when they're not. Tera doesn't fake anything is this revealing and inspiring book.' - Margaret Cho 'This book is an inspirational read with a clear message- There are no limits when one is determined, motivated, and driven.' - Dave Navarro 'She's a girl who knows what she wants and gets it. That's what's cool about Tera Patrick.' - Carmen Electra

This was a good read. Finished it in about 2-3 days. It was very interesting to read what a porn star's life is like off-scene. You get to know everything about her, as a young girl to a newbie porn actress to her retirement. You really get a sense of what life is like for a porn actress. Let alone, have it be Tera Patrick's life. She adds her personal tips in this book as well. You can tell she has put everything into this book, she really had no boundaries writing this book.
I recommend this book. However, reader be aware: This book contains nude photos, kinda hard to carry around in public.
