Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Eric Jerome Dickey comes this sexy novel brimming with the steamy voices of three desperately intertwined lovers.

Dickey centers the story on an L.A.-based writer who is obsessed with gorgeous, nubile Nicole - the very same woman who left him at the altar just three years before. Nicole is torn between her ongoing love for him and her passion for the beautiful Ayanna. It’s time for Nicole to make a decision - keep the writer and lose Ayanna, or try to accommodate both and risk losing everything in a conflagration of uninhibited sexuality.

Fashionable and hot, this irresistible book will delight you with its sensuous view of the bedroom when the lights are out and the candles are lit.

Not One Of His Best.

I have read many of EJD books, and have enjoyed them. This one, not so much. I couldn't get pass the fact, or believe how WEAK the male character was. The narrator, and his narration of this book, AWESOME. He's the reason I finished listening.

Wonderful Man

This was a good book. I loved the narrator. He was awesom. The story was so real. He made me feel as though we were old friends. And he was telling me all about his love affair with Nicole. It's a good book. A must read.

I love this man

Although I read this year's ago as a teen, I cried while listening to this again as a grown woman..especially when his dad acknowledged him as a writer (maybe because I can relate as a writer wanting acceptance of my path in life.) Also the way he skillfully and artistically uses his words always have me in awe.

Beautiful, simply beautiful

loved everything about this book. The narrative style, the way it looks at so many "black " issues - religion, sexuality, masculinity, parental expectations. This book had such depth and sensuality. Dion Graham' s voice is sinfully sexy. I enjoyed is narration emensly.

it's a process

Enjoy the dynamics of the relationships. Each character with their own unknown issues that cause them to be trapped by what try think is love.
