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.

    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.

    "JUST SAY NO!!!!!"

    I WANT TO JUST SAY THAT I GOT THIS AUDIOBOOK ABOUT 3 MONTHS AGO AND I CAN'T GET PASS THE FIRST HOUR... I TRIED AND TRIED TO GIVE IT A CHANCE, AND I GOT NOTHING, NO DRAMA, JUST SEX. THE WHOLE HOUR I WAS LIKE WERE ARE HER OTHER GIRLFRIENDS WHO MAKE WHITTY COMMENTS. OR WHEN SHE WAS RUNNING I WANTED HER TO FALL DOWN THE HILL.. SOMETHING.
    THIS ISN'T ZANE!! ERIC, ERIC, ERIC WHAT THE HECK WERE YOU THINKING. AT LEASE PUT A WARNING IN THE DESCRIPTION LIKE ZANE DOES. LET ME KNOW THIS BOOK IS STRICKLY ABOUT SEX. NOW I LOVE ZANE, NO ONE DOES IT LIKE SHE CAN, BUT LET A SISTA KNOW THAT'S WHAT SHE'S GETTING. I CAN'T BE LISTENING TO UNREALISTIC SEX ALL THE TIME. WHAT'S SO SAD IS I PAID FOR THIS, NOW WHO'S GONNA GIVE ME BACK MY MONEYS?!!! SO LIKE I SAID IN THE SUBJECT..... NO, NO, NO AND ONE MORE FOR ALL OF YOU WHO DON'T UNDERSTAND N-O SPELLS NO!!!

    "Very long,"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book was really drawn out. Many times throughout the book I got bored because it was too long and repetitive. I think it would've been a lot better if it was about 3-4 hours shorter


    Has Pleasure turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What three words best describe Susan Spain’s voice?

    Her voice was find


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

    Too many to mention

    "Just shut up already"

    Okay, this is more about the author and the book and less about the reader. The author likes to throw in every phrase he possibly can when one will do. It's tiresome and indulgent and screams "see how many words I know, aren't I clever?" He can't just say - "she was nervous", he has to say in 5 more phrases "her pulse raced, her pulse raced like she was running a marathon, like a marathon run by ..., blah blah blah." So when you're listening to an audiobook, it's magnified a hundred times. You want to say, "we get it, move on or shut up". The reader has a good voice that matches the character but the words she has to read are so tedious and tiresome. I'm struggling to get through this.

    "Displeasure"

    There is such thing as too much of a good thing. I'm no nun, but there was so much sloppy sex in this book that it turned me off. There was never any mention of protected sex, or the possibility of pregnancy or disease. These are educated, mature adults who should know better! It just got really gross. The characters' growth and numerous plot twists made for an interesting read, but the graphic detail of the incessant orgies became distracting.

    "Loved It!!"

    I really enjoyed this book because Eric Jerome Dickey did a wonderful job of explaining and describing the charcters and the seens in the book. This is not a love story more like erotica! I hope there is a part two to this book. I would suggest this book to anybody just put your seat beat on for the ride!
