Nervous: A Novel

Jonquinette has always been nervous around men, but on the weekends her alter ego, Jude, goes on intense sexual escapades. When Jonquinette seeks the help of Dr. Marcella Spencer, the psychiatrist Zane originated in her best-selling novel Addicted, Jude’s response is to go on a sexual rampage. Meanwhile, Jonquinette becomes interested in her new neighbor, Mason, but Jude has no intention of letting Jonquinette fall in love—not when Jude’s having so much fun.

Publisher's Summary

Zane’s legion of fans can’t get enough of her way of telling a juicy, sexy story. In Nervous, the New York Times best-selling queen of erotica brings us a tale of a woman with a split personality.

Jonquinette has always been nervous around men, but on the weekends her alter ego, Jude, goes on intense sexual escapades. When Jonquinette seeks the help of Dr. Marcella Spencer, the psychiatrist Zane originated in her best-selling novel Addicted, Jude’s response is to go on a sexual rampage. Meanwhile, Jonquinette becomes interested in her new neighbor, Mason, but Jude has no intention of letting Jonquinette fall in love—not when Jude’s having so much fun. Based on a short story of the same title from her best-selling collection The Sex Chronicles, Nervous is classic Zane with an edge. So relax, sit back. You’re in for a nerve-tingling read.

    "Look Beyond the Sex"

    Zane is very well known for her sexy novels. But underneath them all are deep, moving stories with very well-rounded characters.

    If you are easily offended, then books by Zane are not for you. But, if you don't mind a good story with really good sex thrown in, then these are books for you. "Addicted" and "Nervous" (the sequel to "Addicted") were awesome. I highly recommend them both.

    Awesome narration by Nicole Small. I will seek out other audiobooks with her as narrator.

    "Ehh...I like erotica but this was icky"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    no, I won't listen again or try another from this author


    Would you recommend Nervous to your friends? Why or why not?

    Nope, I like erotica but this was just nasty.


    Was Nervous worth the listening time?

    No-1st time tempted to not finish


    Any additional comments?

    I like Megan Hart, Maya Banks, Loreigh Lee, etc. ALL good erotic authors..."Zane" was more like what I'd expect poorly written porn to be..

    "Juicy!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Nervous to be better than the print version?

    No, I don't think you can replace how u interpert it in your mind for how someone else makes it sound.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nervous?

    Unexpected ending!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I cant wait to see the movie since they are making it into a movie starring Boris Kodjoe. I would title it Green Pastures.


    Any additional comments?

    One of Zane's best books!

    "Love it"
    Where does Nervous rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I loved it great story line and Zane did a great job


    What other book might you compare Nervous to and why?

    Not sure I love all Zane books because she is honest and real about her work..


    Have you listened to any of Nicole Small’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She actually made me search her name for other books...she did an amazing job.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Not sure because they might take the good parts out..

    "Well done"

    I thought that this particular novel was not necessarily up to Zane's usual writing, but I very much enjoyed the performance by Ms. Small. I'd listened to books on tape before and did not care for them, but I was given this as a gift, and it made me a "believer." I've since purchased more audible books. As an avid reader, I want to thank you for convincing me to re-try this medium.

    "Really GOOD book!"
    If you could sum up Nervous in three words, what would they be?

    intrigueing, erotic, unresistible.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nervous?

    the most memorable moment is when Jusde reveals her whore side to Mason.


    What about Nicole Small’s performance did you like?

    I loved it! she did a wonderful job.


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

    the part that jetta reveals in the therapy session the jonqutta was malested by her father. i was so disappointed. he seemed like a god person. i fellt like his character was torn down at that moment. and it was at the end of the book. i wanted him to be apart of the happy ending.


    Any additional comments?

    Good job! i loved it. i listed to this 8 hr book and finished it in two days! it was wonderful
