A woman’s sexual obsession will be her downfall—or her liberation.
For successful African American businesswoman Zoe Reynard, finding the pleasure she wants, the way she wants it, is not worth the risk of losing everything she has: marriage to the man she has loved since childhood, a thriving company, three wonderful children. But Zoe feels helpless in the grip of an overpowering addiction—to sex.
Finding a compassionate woman therapist to help her, Zoe finally summons the courage to tell her torrid story, a tale of guilt and desire as shocking as it is compelling. From the sensitive artist with whom she spends stolen hours on rumpled sheets to the rough and violent man who draws her toward destruction, Zoe is a woman desperately searching for fulfillment—and something darker, deeper, and perhaps deadly. As her life spins out of control and her sexual escapades carry her toward a dangerous choice, Zoe is racing against time to uncover the source of her “fatal attraction.” Chilling secrets tumble forth from the recesses of a woman’s mind, and perilous temptations lead toward a climax that can threaten her sanity, her marriage—and her life.

“Snatched me up from the first page and didn’t let me go until the end. A great read!” (Margaret Johnson-Hodge, best-selling author of Butterscotch Blues)
Great story with a good twist!!!! You would never guess!!!!I love her books...she leaves you with a WOW feeling at the end!!
No. Zoe makes her way though live belittling, insulting and degrading others with a in your face attitude if anyone tries to help her. Her first reaction is aggression or violence by word or action. She doesn't want any one "In her business" but she feels free to intrude into everyone's else's business. The plot device that both men she has affairs with are violent jerks and one a serial killer was not believable. Zoe reacted to people and life like a macho immature 14 year old boy yet supposedly everyone liked or loved her even though she was a bitch. Life doesn't work that way.
Maybe. She has talent as a writer and I think she thought Zoe's attitude was strength which it wasn't.
I thought it was going to be but the last quarter of the book changed my mind. I think the author was lazy and used simple plot devices to resolve the story and have a happy ending. and to explain the behaviors.
Being insulting, degrading, and belittling people is not strength. It is being obnoxious and a bully.
It was a struggle to begin but got hooked after the introduction. I felt like the twist was unnecessary as it bought the story to a bore. The center of the story helped me give this 3 stars.
I was happy with this story into until the last thirty minutes. I did not like that he ending with the black male serial killer. I felt the original story line was very realistic and I could picture it all happening. All in all it was a great read though. I have no other complaints.
Say something about yourself!
Yes I would. It was very entertaining and kept my listening. Zoe was a feisty, headstrong, educated, black female. She was family orientated, well grounded, successful, business minded and so on and so on but yet she was not perfect. and I love it.
Can't decide on just one
She could have changed her voice just a little when she did the male voices. Sometimes I had no idea who was talking. It was Confusing. It was hard to take the men serious because she didn't do a good job with expression there emotions. But she was awesome with Zoe. The fact that I liked the story kept me listening. Also the fact that I read the book awhile back.
Her sessions with the therapist. They were touching and of course the sexual escapades. LOL
loved it! I was pleasantly surprised to hear the voice of narration . The story was well developed and had a surprising twist at the end. Easy listening.
