Audible Editor Reviews

100 Strokes of the Brush Before Bed, an erotically charged 2004 novel by young Italian author Melissa P. was published in 40 countries and earned its author a reprimand from the pope. Its steamy sequel is given a languorous, sensual performance by Edwina Wren.

The Scent of Your Breath is composed as a letter from a young woman to her mother in which she speaks of her past loves and coming of age. Melissa P.’s story is fresh, tender, and - with its frank, graphic sexual detail - sometimes shocking.

Wren uses an Italian accent, and her breathy delivery is reminiscent of a young Sophia Loren.

Publisher's Summary

The smouldering follow-up to the international blockbuster 100 Strokes of the Brush Before Bed. Melissa P.'s fictionalized memoir, 100 Strokes of the Brush Before Bed, became an international literary phenomenon, selling over two million copies worldwide and inspiring profiles in Vanity Fair and The New York Times, as well as a warning from the pope.The Scent of Your Breath, the second installment in the Melissa P.'s series of confessions, is a stirring tale of obsessive love and destructive passion.

Melissa, desperate for love and willing to do anything to find it, is now a successful writer in Rome, living with her new lover, Thomas. But as soon as she meets Viola, a woman from Thomas's past, sexual passion and insecurity mount in tandem, and Melissa is consumed with jealousy.

Written as a confessional letter to her mother, the story that follows is one of dark obsession, violent lust, and soul-destroying talent. Driven by Melissa's singular voice - that unique and compelling combination of impetuous naivete and poetic sophistication that has mesmerized readers in 31 countries - The Scent of Your Breath blurs the boundaries between reality and fantasy and delves deep into the disturbing yet strangely familiar mind of a teenage girl terrorized by love.
