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.

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.

Between Lovers

This book is XXXXX rated. Sex language is so explicit that I just couldn't listen to much of this book. This is a miss.

Just Ok

I found myself disliking Nicole the more I listened to the book. I found her to be very selfish and I couldn't understand how she could use 2 people so wrecklessly. And more importantly; why did these 2 individuals stick by her through all the crap she sent their way? I think what Nicole asked them to endure was more than they should have. Ultimately I would have liked to see both people dump Nicole and her learn a lesson about how distructive she was. The ending was drug out way too long and I didn't connect with Nicole because I found her actions beyond reasonable and I couldn't imagine both people sticking by her side after the way she had treated them for years. I was rooting for Nicole to get slapped down.
