New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey returns to the life of Nia Simone Bijou (of Pleasure fame) as she embarks on a quest to enhance her artistic gifts through heightened sensory experience, Hollywood-style.

Four years have passed since the events of Pleasure, and Nia's success as a writer has grown, bringing her from Atlanta to Los Angeles. But she remains on a quest to quiet her inner storm, to draw on her well of emotions and explore them fully before leaving this season of her life and moving on to what could be the next stage: marriage and motherhood.

Drawn to an exclusive pleasure palace, where patrons try on roles as they actively shun their respective realities, Nia's ability to balance truth and fantasy becomes increasingly blurred. What has happened to the compartments she has so carefully created for the different aspects of her life? Will her relationship with the mysterious, often unavailable Prada survive the countless temptations? Will her successful literary career be given over to impulse indulgence? Does decadence know any bounds?

When Nia's past comes back to mingle with her present, and when her staid public persona clashes with her fantasy life of decadence, readers will be stunned by the outcome. Eric Jerome Dickey's newest tale of excess—and its sky-high costs—is a thrilling portrait of a glittering world.

Great price, especially since I always buy EJD books in hardback because he is my favorite author. It arrived before I expected and I am sure it will be great once I read it. :) Read full review

User Review  - Dionna Johnson - Goodreads

I couldn't get past the first chapter!!!! I'm sorry...Eric Jerome Dickey's style of writing has changed so much since he first came out. I can't get with him anymore. Sadly this attempt was probably my last time reading his books. Read full review
