Publisher's Summary

A fable, dripping with gold and uttered from the lips of a dying man sets four friends off on the adventure of a lifetime. 

The last remnant of an age lost to myth calls from the very cusp of Hell as the dangers rise with the heat of the tropics and they are plunged into the unfathomable depths of the Amazon where they will struggle for survival in an ancient city born of blood, lust, and betrayal. 

With the whispers of a dead man echoing promises of power, wealth, and desire, their path to paradise is laid out in the bones of those who learned too late what is waiting beyond the mist of time.

Erotica... with a plot!

This adventure story is pure fun—mystery, intrigue, and a lot of raunchy sex. The ending was darker than I expected, and left me with unresolved questions. Brittany A's performance was flawless, and I'd happily listen to more books by her. If you'd enjoy an explicit, x-rated Indiana Jones type of tale, you'll love Luxuria.

A Jumanji style adventure!

Luxuria is a Jumanji style adventure filled with danger, magic, and of course, sex.

Fuller has created a fun cast of characters that are easy to love. We follow them as they explore some ancient ruins on their vacation, but what they find is much more than any of them were bargaining for.

Narrated by Brittney A for the audible version, this was a great story to listen to. She is an amazing voice for the characters, and she was great at reading the steamy scenes as well.

Overall, this was a super enjoyable read and I would recommend it to any fans of erotica!

Fun adventure!

Luxuria is an easy to read book with a good balance of erotic and adventure scenes. Author James Fuller creates a wild story – in more ways than one!

With the whispers of a dead man echoing promises of power, wealth and desire, the path of four friends to paradise is laid out in the bones of those who learned too late what is waiting beyond the mist of time.

The feelings I have about this book are also based on the job done by the narrator. I enjoyed the plot of this book. I am not a big adventure book reader but this book covered all the bases of the adventure movies I enjoy. The epic adventure the characters wanted definitely was represented in the plot! The fantasy elements were all there as well. Lot’s of magic and mayhem. There was a great balance of sex and plot so that’s always good.

As for the characters, the narrator does try to use different voices for each character but they aren’t perfect. So this starts my issues with the characters. I didn’t have an issue with them overall, but they were hard to get comfortable with because the men’s voices seemed so similar. I had to develop my relationships with each character by trying to analyze their behavior. For instance, the male characters were definitely written to have differing personalities: the playboy, the smart one, the other guy, but during the reading I had to really focus to differentiate them and that’s not something I want to focus on with an audiobook.

I thought the world building in this story was okay. Fuller described the settings that really needed to be described but also left some things to our imaginations. I could indeed “see” every setting within the story. Setting aside, the biggest and best part of the world is the mythology. I loved the idea of the ancient history of the location and the women who were “working hard” to get it back to it’s glory. The plotting and planning they did to get everyone to do their bidding was clever and I appreciate their smarts and willingness to do anything for it.

This brings me to the end of the story. Before reading, I did research the book which inevitably means running to reviews. I have to say although I don’t totally agree with other reviewers, but I did need a little bit more in the ending. Everything was going well, things were falling into place, but the ending just kinda flattened out. It was a good, closed circle, coming back around from the beginning, but what was missing was a definite, tight closure by way of just one or two more sentences to completely tie it back to the beginning. Without giving away too much, one more bit of dialogue that mirrored the start of the story was missing that would have sealed the deal for me.

Overall, I can’t complain about this story! Had I read it as an eBook I think I may have been more attached to the characters, but I thought it was well done and I would recommend it to a friend.

Not what I expected....it was better!

I was a bit hesitant at first to listen to this for two reasons: 1) audiobooks are not normally my thing, and 2) erotica is not a genre I generally explore. But I was pleasantly surprised here. The story is captivating if a bit predictable, and the characters each have their own distinctive personalities. The sex scenes are integral but the story could stand on its own without them, IMO. There are some grammatical issues and an overabundance of adverbs but that's nothing a bit of editing won't cure. Overall, it was 3 hours of immersive listening. I'm comfortable recommending it to anyone looking for an erotica adventure.

LUXURIA - EXCELLENT,

Luxuria by James Fuller is very well written, loaded with tension, unpredictable and erotic. Four friends take a trip to the Amazon looking for adventure. Two of them find a dying man with a warning and a map to ruins and riches. Then they find a guide who takes them deep into the jungle and deserts them in the night. They stumble on the city and more excitement, suspense and danger than they could ever have anticipated. One reviewer stated that it was like Indiana Jones (with a group) meets erotica and I couldn’t have said it better. And just when I thought I knew how it would end, the author threw in some unforeseen twists and turns! An excellent book!

The reader was absolutely the perfect choice and delivered an excellent performance.

Thrilling & Exotic

The performance of this story was excellent and enticing. She brought the scenes to life as James told a wicked tale of adventure and a nightmarish horror. Definitely enjoyed the twisted ending.
