Description
New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey, known for “the vibrancy of his characters” (The Washington Post) explores the boundaries of one woman’s deepest fantasies—and crosses them with absolute abandon. 
What Nia Simon Bijou desires, she works hard to achieve. Her accomplishments as a respected writer have not only brought her to Hollywood, but she’s now poised for worldwide success, and pursued and desired by Prada, a man of international power and wealth. With everything Nia has, she remains restless and on a journey to quell her inner storm. Then someone introduces her to a place called Decadence…
In this intimately private club, Nia submits to an abundance of sensual experiences she previously could only have imagined. As secret desires become reality, Nia’s ability to distinguish truth from fantasy becomes increasingly blurred. Seduced into the extremes of Decadence, Nia soon discovers that abandoning all caution in pursuit of your hedonistic fantasies can carry a devastating price…

        March 1, 2013
        Seeking liberation and a fuller awareness of self, Nia Simone Bijou enters a glittering fantasy world of erotic temptations. But some unfinished business shows up at her erotic playground. A successful screenwriter from Trinidad, Nia has no shortage of willing lovers. Most recently, she has indulged in a spontaneous menage a trois with a lovely woman from Vancouver and Bret--Bret, who (like an erotic magician) can work carnal trickery with a basic towel. Recalling a torrid sexual marathon with the exotic, powerful businessman named Prada, Nia cannot deny that she longs for him but finds herself reluctant to pursue a relationship with him, since no one man could ever satisfy her for long. Even worse, he says he's in love with her. Further in her past lurks Chris, her first love and the man who broke her heart. Restless and in search of sexual adventures, Nia joins the exclusive club Decadence, which offers adult pleasures--awarding membership only to the most physically beautiful applicants (after screening them for all known sexually transmitted infections). Initially a voyeur, Nia is quickly drawn into active participation, engaging in anonymous sex with men and women who signal their wealth with Mont Blanc watches and Louboutin shoes. Dickey (An Accidental Affair, 2012, etc.) focuses on aroused body parts (often with pretentious, quasi-mystical euphemisms). Combined with such clinical observation, Nia's minute description of every throb and moan cheapens the hedonistic exploits into crude thrills. Her ostensible quest for a man who can indulge her every fantasy devolves into a three-ring circus of sexual acrobatics. By the time Chris, Prada and Bret return to her life, and Nia must make some real-life decisions with real-life consequences, the reader is numb and ready to go home. More debauched soft pornography than tantric sexual quest.

        Fans, you'll love it; this novel picks up the thread of Dickey's popular Pleasure. Four years hence, Nia Simone Bijou has achieved success as a writer but is still striving to master the turmoil within before she moves on to marriage and motherhood. But at the pleasure palace where patrons shed their identities to try on new ones, she's losing perspective. With a five-city tour.

        We saw the young Atlanta writer Nia Simone Bijou immersed in an erotic make-believe world in Pleasure (2008). Four years later, she's back and enthralled by even more temptation than before. During a quest for sexual and experimental indulgence, Nia joins an exclusive club for the daring and the wealthy, where wild escapades take place and fantasy meshes thoroughly with reality. Not knowing what is real anymore, Nia questions her relationship with the very mysterious Prada and comes across an old flame who tempts her back into a racy, arousing turnabout she's not sure she can handle. Best-selling author Dickey offers a story line of entangled erotic mysteries in this new page-turner that will leave readers breathless and satisfied.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2013, American Library Association.)
