Simply complicated. I like a little fiction in my life to break it all up. No time to read anymore so now I listen to my books.

    Nia Simone Bijou is a woman who has it all - and is driven by the desire for more. Born in Trinidad, reared in Los Angeles, living in Atlanta, Nia is a writer, a thinker, and a woman in conflict. She's dealing with two sides of her Gemini self, feeling as if there are two women living inside her, both struggling for domination.

    If you could sum up Pleasure in three words, what would they be?

    So eroticly good.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The twins sound like they were etched from chocolate.


    Who was the most memorable character of Pleasure and why?

    Nia we are both Geminis & I can relate to the feeling of have two personalities that are polar opposites but live together. She is braver than I but I can enjoy living through her experiences.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this book a couple of years ago but I recently came across a kindle book on the character Nia that made me want to re visit this story. I cant believe how much I'm enjoying Pleasure the second time around.

  • What’s His Is Mine

    Story

    Essence best-selling author Daaimah S. Poole delivers the scandalous and sexy goods her fans can’t get enough of in this sizzling tale of women trying to score. Adrienne Sheppard isn’t raking it in as an NFL star’s baby mama, so she’s looking to get wifed. Zakiya Lee is pregnant by the NBA’s hottest new player, but fame is wearing her out. And sports reporter Cherise Long has a pro athlete picked out too—but he happens to be Adrienne’s man.

    What did you love best about What’s His Is Mine?

    I had a hard time getting into this book. The way the book was chopped up I guess the best way to describe what I didn't like.The way the book was read was distracting. I wanted to know what was going to happened to the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Cherise because she was the character I could most relate to.

    New York Times best-selling author Eric Jerome Dickey returns to a character he created in his celebrated novel of erotic daring, Pleasure. Four years have passed in the life of Nia Simone Bijou, and she is approaching the height of her artistic powers. A film she has written is poised for international success, the studio is eager for a sequel, and the media are fascinated by her work. Yet her imaginative mind is wandering.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Decadence to be better than the print version?

    I don't know if better for everyone, but it was the best for me. I listened in the house, in the car, listened while at work. I hated to go to sleep and yelled at my kids to stop talking during the day.


    What other book might you compare Decadence to and why?

    Pleasure, and the ebook Nia Simone.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed at the parts intended to be funny.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved that this book gave closure to all the stories that were left unfinished. Eric Jerome Dickey is amazing. I've read reviews that complained he used too many words. OMG! If you enjoy an intelligent read then the words are the point. The more details the better, I haven't visited the places he writes about but I feel like I have ( no pun intended). I enjoy the details of all his books, and I loved this story too. Now I no longer wonder what happend?
