Sub Read: Pleasure: Nia Simone Bijou by Eric Jerome Dickey

Nia Simone Bijou is a woman who has it all―and is driven by the desire for more. Trinidad born, L. A. raised, living in Atlanta, Nia is a writer, a thinker, and a woman in conflict. She’s dealing with two sides of her Gemini self, feeling as if there are two women living inside her, both struggling for domination. One side of Nia is a logical yet heartbroken person who has never let go of an old pain, while the other side is a sensual woman who will not let her rest, desiring intimacy and sexual freedom, demanding Pleasure. In the heat of July, loneliness, desire, and a struggle with both the sensual self and fantasy inspire Nia to become sexually adventurous, meeting lovers who arouse her in diverse ways, lovers who give her unimaginable experiences. Fantasies spiral out of control, and with her life on the line, Nia discovers that Pleasure does not come without pain.
