Publisher's Summary

How realistic is it to believe that one lover can satisfy a woman's every fantasy?

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.

One side of Nia is a logical yet heartbroken person who has never let go of an old pain. The other side is a sensual woman who will not let her rest, desiring intimacy and sexual freedom, demanding pleasure.

In the sweltering heat of July, loneliness, desire, and a struggle with both the sensual self and fantasy inspire Nia to become sexually adventurous, meeting lovers who arouse her in diverse ways, lovers who give her unimaginable experiences, generous lovers who desire to please her as much as she desires to satisfy them. Fantasies spiral out of control, and with her life on the line, Nia discovers that pleasure does not come without pain.

Filled with passion, populated with characters that are sexually uninhibited, Pleasure is an unforgettable journey into a free-spirited world.

    "Not a Romance Novel"

    This book should be placed in Erotica section not in the Romance section. This book is not a romance novel. This is a good book if you are not looking for a romance novel.

    "displeased"

    I purchased this book, because it was listed as a fiction/romance (african american). However this book should be listed as erotica/sexuality. Not that I have a problem with erotica, but this book was non-stop sex and in the end there were no redeeming qualities about the characters involved. Sadly, this book depicts "successful, intellegent" people engaging in risky behavior. Listening to this book is at first arousing, then after 2 straight hours of "blow jobs" it gets old quickly.

    Story
    "Yep....Erotica"

    A few hot scenes are okay every now and then, but this was just too much. Some of the situations seemed unrealistic...totally and ridiculously unrealistic. However, if hot funky love is what you want, this one's for you.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    Story
    "Potions were ok"

    Portions of the story were hot...very. (yes, as in Zane, Noire, Mary B Morrison hot) But parts of the book made you say 'huh?'. I was not sure how some of it was tied into the story so it seemed a little all over the place. The ending was not to my liking. It starts off a page turner but parts of it could have possibly been edited so that it flowed better.

    "Racey"

    This is erotica, and even though thats not what I was looking for it was great! Nia Simone protrays a woman's version of behavior that men are characterized as having.."Seeking full sexual pleasure without compromise". My only problem was that the author never mentions "saftey" during sex which cause me to go "ewh" at times, but that doesnt distract too much from the erotica of the sceenes.

    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.

    Story
    "So heated! I had to put it down"
    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.

    Story
    "PURE TORTURE!!...but in a GOOD way"
    Would you listen to Pleasure again? Why?

    This was my very first audible book. I would listen to it over and over. Eric Jerome Dickey is one of my favorite writers and I love anything he puts out. I've never experienced a bad book from him and I do not expect to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nia Simone Bijou is my favorite character. She is open and free, willing to sacrifice everything to find herself.


    What about Susan Spain’s performance did you like?

    She is very articulate and can change from character to character flawlessly.


    If you could rename Pleasure, what would you call it?

    Pure Pleasure

    "OUTSTANDING"

    This is one of the better stories I have read in a long time. Story ended realistically and I loved the passion and adventure. Nia took her Yoni and spectacular adventure and did some crazy stuff along the way. Thousands of thumbs up to Eric Dickey...Masterful work.

    "Pleasure"

    All I say is WOW! I’m huge Eric Jerome Dickey fan and I definitely wasn’t let me down with this story. I found this book extremely intriguing. It has twists, turns, and lots of erotic surprises. It was very difficult to turn off this audible. And the narrator is simply amazing! I liked it so much I’m going to buy the hardcover copy.
