Publisher's Summary

With each step I eased down a hallway filled with grand arches. A swanky red carpet led to the meeting area, where men waited for their dates. We exited the undressing room as if we were at a Hollywood premiere.

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.

Though Nia is much desired - by the mysterious, often unavailable international businessman Prada, with whom she enjoys unprecedented attraction; by the fit local veteran, Brett, who puts her through her paces, most often during grueling road training sessions - her first love, Chris, is never far from her thoughts. When Nia receives an invitation to the exclusive pleasure palace known as Decadence, her romantic world gives way to an abundance of sensory experience she could never have imagined.

Even as the Hollywood premiere of her potentially career-changing film approaches, she is drawn further into this forbidden lifestyle. Under the influence of glamorous, sensuous new friends, Nia abandons all caution, and her ability to balance truth and fantasy becomes increasingly blurred. Will her relationship with Prada survive countless temptations? Will her professional achievements be given over to impulsive indulgence? Does decadence know any bounds?

Eric Jerome Dickey’s newest tale of excess - and its sky-high costs - is a thrilling portrait of a glittering world.

    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.

    "Well worth the wait!"
    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?

    "Disappointed!"
    What disappointed you about Decadence?

    It was a sexcapade book...no real story...just straight sex!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    It won't be anything by EJD if this is his new direction.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Decadence?

    All of them!

    Love Eric read EVERY book he's ever written. For some reason this book seemed a little over the top with the sex. like its competing with 50 shades. i preferred the suspense and the mystery of pleasure. i'll still buy his books though, he's awesome.

    "Disappointed"
    What would have made Decadence better?

    I've listened and read all of EJD books and am very disappointed with Decadence. If I wanted a story full of porn, I would have gone to a different type of site. Even if someone was sexually active, to the point of having it as an addiction, one wouldn't have an encounter every min of their lives.... Hopefully the next book will have a plot (like the Gideon series).


    Would you ever listen to anything by Eric Jerome Dickey again?

    If it has a plot (or whatever you would call it in this book), no.

    "Too Much Sex"

    Way too much sex in this book. It could have had a little more story line. I love erotica but this was a little difficult to finish. Sorry I love EJD but this one did not do it for me.

    "Nia, Nia, Nia....still freaky as ever!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I always wonder what happen to Nia after reading EJD first book of her Preasure. And just when you think it can't get no freakier.....EJD brings her back and she still wild as every. But you have to read the first book to fully understand what I mean.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nia of course....because she is who she is....you either love her or hate her.

    "Beware VERY Erotic...."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved the story line, the sex scenes were very vivid....


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Decadence?

    The honey and hot tea....I must try that one day!


    What does Susan Spain bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love how she reads as if she is actually in the scene....As if she is NIA. Her accents are great too!


    Who was the most memorable character of Decadence and why?

    Nia of course!

    "Didn't really Get It"

    I wanted to read this one because I'd read Pleasure previously. This one was a miss for me. I normally listen to a book within a couple of days. This one took months for me to have the desire to complete. The only reason I did so was to see if the ending was significant. It was not.
    The book was full of sex, sex, sex and unnecessary vocabulary. Don't get me wrong, I'm a reader, but I'd consider this book as being a collection of the “smut ”(no offence to any of the great authors out there who I enjoy) that I enjoy regularly. No need for Mr. Dickey to use all of the vocabulary that he knows in this kind of book. Furthermore, the book lacked a significant meaning.
    Would I consider reading more of Dickey's works? Of course. Would I read another book that features Nia Simone Bijou? Maybe.... This one sort of left me asking questions. Nia seemed to be searching for something and is left empty in this one.

    "So..."

    This was just too graphic. And I love a steamy novel, but this was just too much.

    "The Worst Book I EVER Listened To"
    Would you try another book from Eric Jerome Dickey and/or Susan Spain?

    Not if it was like this one, it was totally tasteless.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Don't know


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    If you are into listening to smut without a story line, this is it. This book had no rhythm or reason! The story teller had the same tone throughout the book and the words used for sexual parts made it even worse.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NONE


    Any additional comments?

    Not worth my points!
