Lots of Bumping and Grinding with Literary Allusions,
This review is from: Pleasure (Hardcover)
Pleasure is a book about a woman's desire for more sexual fulfillment. Sensitized by Anais Nin's writings, Nia Simone Bijou is intrigued to find two men who fascinate and excite her. She climbs aboard to see how far the ride will take her.
Curiously, although this book is supposed to be from a woman's perspective, I continually felt that I was reading a book from a man's perspective, translated into a woman's perspective by changing the sexes of the various characters. Many men are fascinated by having sexual relationships with two attractive women at the same time, but I'm not sure that very many women feel the same way about having two men.
If you like erotic fiction, you'll probably enjoy this book more than I did. The book became all too predictable after a while, and I didn't really care if I finished it or not. The story wasn't taking me anywhere I wanted to go . . . or to find out about.
In addition, many of the sequences felt more like fantasy that reality. As such, it was hard to identify with the characters or the story.
Eric Jerome Dickey is a talented writer, but he usually puts a little more content into his stories. This one was more sensation than substance.
