New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey, “one of the most successful Black authors of the last quarter-century”* explores the depths of desire in this sensual blockbuster.
Born in Trinidad and living in Atlanta after a relationship gone bad, Nia Simone Bijou is an ambitious writer who has it all. Except for the one thing that'll give her the control she craves-and the power she deserves: absolute, uninhibited sexual satisfaction. Now, in the sweltering days and nights of summer, the heat is on. Nia's fantasies will become a reality-with man after man after man. She will shatter the limits of erotic love. She will open herself up to experiences she never dared before. And as her fantasies begin to spin out of control, she'll discover the unexpected price of the extreme.
*The New York Times
Is obsession required to experience the ultimate in sexual fulfillment? Dickey searches for the answer to that question in his latest steamy romance (after Waking with Enemies) via Nia Simone Bijoux, a ghostwriter recently moved to Atlanta. A devout Ana s Nin fan, Nia's in hot pursuit of the perfect lay. Enlivened by sometimes catchy narration ("Self-pleasuring was popcorn.... My body was telling me it needed steak"), Nia's adventures with "identical sins," twins Mark and Karl, introduce her to the dubious delights of threesomes and more, leading eventually to a showdown with Mark's wife, Jewell Stewark, a TV anchorwoman. Marred somewhat by Nia's pretentious airs (her self-involvement can be crippling to the narrative), this erotic potboiler still delivers its message that saying "yes" to pleasure can also lead to self-enlightenment.
Pleasure... True To Its Name
Mr. Dickey does it again in this noir erotica novel. Pleasure at its deepest and finest. I've never read such a lengthy book in such a short spam of time. Mr. Dickey has a way with his words and imagination that takes you out of reality and into the world of his characters in his novel. You won't just be a reader ... You will become Nia Simone Bijou...
An amazing book, its a must to read.
