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.

"Susan Spain's emotionally nuanced reading successfully translates the book to audio format." (Library Journal)
I love Eric Jerome Dickey's book and this one was not disappointing. Unrealistic maybe, but good reading none the less. One good advice-Get your cold shower ready.
I stumbled upon Eric Jerome Dickey and his work about four years ago; I thought I was getting a light summer romance novel. Well I got so much more!!! I became an instant fan and then read everything that I could find and now I can not wait until his newest creations are released on audio.
Having twin brothers featured gaves this book the Cain and Abel contrast which kept me reading and provided very interesting twists.
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!
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.
Steamy and erotic!!! What we all want to experience and may never get the chance. A woman free to experience life on her own terms. To not be ashamed, rejoice in the pleasure and refuse to feel guilty about it!
