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.

    "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
    "Pleasure, NOT"

    THE HEAT OF JULY LIVED BETWEEN MY THIGHS
    Right from the start we have this main character pleasuring herself. Even though through out what I listened to she keeps telling us what smart, independent, and accomplished woman she is, she has all kinds of trouble reaching the peak. She wants a man for sex, but does not want any emotional ties. Later when she has the chance to make her fantasies cum true with a set of beautiful rich male twins, she chickens out. She spends a lot of time talking about sex, but nothing else. This may have changed after six chapters, but I could not take this bitch any longer.
    NEEDS BROUGHT OUT THE SELFISHNESS IN US ALL.
    This could have been titled THE YOUNG, BROWN, RICH AND HORNY. Our hot chick meets a couple of guys and they start talking about their trips to Europe and how much they love cricket. Really, what are the chances you would find three people in Atlanta, who love cricket? She is also a writer and hates anyone who uses your for you're and the wrong their, there or They're, etc. I now some people like that and who think they are better then others cause they have a talent with words. Well, we all have a talent in something, it doesn't mean we have to have the same talent or that anybody is better then anybody else, so get off your high horse. She prefers married men. She speaks constantly in short clipped sentences, often giving several descriptions for one thing. I think she has orgasms listening to her self talk.
    TO MYSELF BECOME A PHILOSOPHER.
    Needless to say, I did not like this character and when the first real sex scene ended up being a guy blowing another guy, I moved on to another book.
    WOMEN WHO MIGHT OUTLIVE ME, BUT MY COFFIN WILL BE EASIER TO CARRY.

    "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!

    Loved all of it.

    When Nia was with both of the brothers.

    EXCITEMENT!!!!

    The brothers cause they both were SEXY & HOT!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Just reading the reviews I was a little leery about getting the book but, I'm glad I did. I like to read reviews & go off of them but, this is one book I'm glad I decided to order it & not go off the mixed reviews. This is one of the best stories I have listened to in a while.

    "eye opener"
    What made the experience of listening to Pleasure the most enjoyable?

    This book took me into a world of realistic fantasy....Nia did things that men do all the time and most women wish they could....the more I listened the more I wanted to know about her and her twin sins....


    What other book might you compare Pleasure to and why?

    I am looking for more books like this, page turning/ear grabbing...I love the graphic details


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susan Spain?

    The narrator was EXTREMELY monotone...made the book have a slow start....wish I could have narrated it myself......I am gonna steer clear of books narrated by her


    Who was the most memorable character of Pleasure and why?

    All of the characters were....Nia, Mark, Karl, Kiki, & Jewel...its obvious, but I can't give the book away


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there was a different ending or perhaps a sequel can give us another look into the lives of Nia, Mark, Karl, & Jewel

    "Too Wordy"

    Usually love books by Mr. Dickey, but he goes too much into detail on everything. He drags the scenes out. Wish I would have read the other reviews first. Going to try to finish the book, but only on Chapter 4 and I am ready to pull my hair out. As another patron stated, she wanted Nia to just fall off the mountain during chapter 3.

    "Detailed Desires."

    Don't let the snippet turn you off. It's a really detailed book, by the second chapter you might get a little numb at the over sensitized visuals and words—but you get used to it FAST. It took my mind on a deep journey through the character's lives and thoughts. It twisted and turned in my head causing me to not put my ipod down! This is a must read. I can't wait to read more from this author.
