Usually love books by Mr. Dickey, but he goes too much into detail on everything. He drags the scenes out. Wish I would have read the other reviews first. Going to try to finish the book, but only on Chapter 4 and I am ready to pull my hair out. As another patron stated, she wanted Nia to just fall off the mountain during chapter 3.
Don't let the snippet turn you off. It's a really detailed book, by the second chapter you might get a little numb at the over sensitized visuals and words—but you get used to it FAST. It took my mind on a deep journey through the character's lives and thoughts. It twisted and turned in my head causing me to not put my ipod down! This is a must read. I can't wait to read more from this author.
This book is not for everyone. I really enjoyed it but it is a fantasy so forget about safe sex. And yup, to the person who doubts it - in our younger days some of us did enjoy each other as many as five times within 72 hours. The twins thing is in the book to heat things up a bit. I will listen to more of his work.
This is a steamy book. Endless sex. Seemed to be written by a woman given the level of detail mentioned. interest...
I truly love reading and listening to E.J.D. books, but was very unhappy with this one! This book should be rated X! I never heard of any ONE person that had their sexual fantasies fulfilled - a total of 5 or more - within 72 hours, like in this book! From one scene to the next, the main Character is having the time of her life with pleasure! I know it is a fiction, but come on, be for real! LOL There is NO plot to this book and it just carries the Reader/Listener to one sexual fantasy to the next.
I am not sure if author, E.J.D. had a vision of where this book was going, but I know if his work doesn't pick up, I plan to leave his books at "the curb".
I want to give his books one more chance (like I said, I have read and listened to all of his books). I am purchasing his newest book, and will write my review after I listen to this one - Waking with Enemies.
He's done it again. Mr. Dickey has pulled us in again. I loved the way EJD fused the character, Nia's thoughts with the undeniable wonder of Anais Nin. The story is rather erotic but still kept your attention. The narrator did a superb job with keeping the erotica indeed EROTIC to the ear and with the different voices! When I finished this book I was missing the characters like they were real people! (Don't tell nobody) I loved this book as I do ALL of EJD's books. I am eagerly awaiting his next book! You go Mr. D!!
I was in a hurry and did not read all the reviews, although well-read and well-written, it was an endless listening experience of sex and erotica, which after a while can be BORING.....and much of the listening was simply unbelievable, come on, the wife walks in on the mistress with her husband, a fight ensues bewteen hubby and wife, and before it's over the wife and husband are locked in lust, while the mistress watches, all in the mistress' bedroom. Again, very well-read by the narrator, and entertaining if you just want to listen to sex talk, however, no substance, no real storyline and definitely not a love story...dissappointed..
