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.

    "Strong female character, life on her terms."

    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!

    In classic Dickey style the twist and turns keep coming. He did a wonderful job exploring a woman's who's sexuality has no boundaries.

    "Wow"

    The narrator was great! As for the storyline, it was nonstop sex so if you like that...... Overall I enjoyed the book because I agree with how she celebrates being single!

    Story
    "TOO MUCH!! PLEASURE"
    What did you like best about Pleasure? What did you like least?

    I think this was a good story line but it was bit too graphic..


    If you’ve listened to books by Eric Jerome Dickey before, how does this one compare?

    Book to me is not in the same category with Jerome's other work..


    How could the performance have been better?

    a little less licking and little more story telling


    Did Pleasure inspire you to do anything?

    I am sorry I used my credit on this one. Jerome Dickey is a Fantastic writer but FOR ME he dropped the ball.

    Story
    "Loved it!! More than what I ever expected"
    Where does Pleasure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was the 1st audiobook I've listened to and I'm so glad that I chose this one as my first. I have a hard copy of the book and for some reason could not make it past Chapter 2 after multiple attempts.....but I started listening to the audio version and was finished in 2 days because I couldn't bear to turn it off!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pleasure?

    The scenes between Nia and her "identical sins" The ways she describes what they all do for each other both mentally and physically.


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

    I like the way she's able to take on all the different accents of the characters and how she can speak Nia's thoughts in her moments of passion. It was different from when she was speaking for Nia out loud.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The meetings between Nia and her Identical Sins for sure...hard to say without giving anything away...the only thing is I wish the ending was different but that's just because I hate for a good story to end.


    Any additional comments?

    The text is bit lengthy but it leaves no thought to the imagination. It is a sex story where a woman is honest to her desires while finding herself and I loved it. I've heard some say its pure porn and maybe so but the story is intense and erotic and left me on edge every step of the way

    "FIRE!!!"
    If you could sum up Pleasure in three words, what would they be?

    Sexy, Stimulating, Passionate!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Unlike it's follow up Decadence, the plot was well thought out. And the eroticism wasn't overkill or raunchy.


    What about Susan Spain’s performance did you like?

    Her voice was perfect for telling this story! Liked how she changed up her voice for the different characters. And when it got to funny moments in the story, she was right on point with her expressions and emphasis.


    If you could take any character from Pleasure out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Oh the sexy twins for sure! I would need both just like Nia...LOL


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't expecting erotic when I purchased this, but I was pleasantly surprised. Now I need more!
