Pleasure
Dickey, Eric Jerome.
Adult Fiction DICKEY

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Is obsession required to experience the ultimate in sexual fulfillment? Dickey searches for the answer to that question in his latest steamy romance (after Waking with Enemies) via Nia Simone Bijoux, a ghostwriter recently moved to Atlanta. A devout Anais Nin fan, Nia's in hot pursuit of the perfect lay. Enlivened by sometimes catchy narration ("Self-pleasuring was popcorn.... My body was telling me it needed steak"), Nia's adventures with "identical sins," twins Mark and Karl, introduce her to the dubious delights of threesomes and more, leading eventually to a showdown with Mark's wife, Jewell Stewark, a TV anchorwoman. Marred somewhat by Nia's pretentious airs (her self-involvement can be crippling to the narrative), this erotic potboiler still delivers its message that saying "yes" to pleasure can also lead to self-enlightenment.

From Library Journal:

Asked in an April National Public Radio interview whether his latest novel, about a ghostwriter pursuing pleasure and exploring sex while avoiding overwhelming relationships, fit into the literary, romance, erotica, or pornography genres, New York Times best-selling author Dickey (Waking with Enemies) replied, "Probably all." Though some listeners may be put off by the graphic descriptions of Nia's sexual encounters, Susan Spain's (Satin Nights) emotionally nuanced reading successfully translates the book to audio format. Recommended primarily for urban libraries with Dickey fans.
