Book: Guilty Pleasures by Niyah Moore

We are slowly introduced to the six main characters in this book:    Guilty Pleasures

Hassan Walker, husband to Roxi, who has been visiting the gentleman’s club called “Sugar Hill” for the past year.  He has a favorite, Cinnamon, who he comes to see every week and who he fantasies about but knows that it can go no further.

Roxi Walker, wife to Hassan, who is also Dawn’s assistant and who is having a secret affair.  But when Hassan finds out, her offers her an ultimatum:  him or her lover.

Dawn, Roxi’s boss, who is having an affair with a married business man.  It means nothing to her except for sex as she wants to be with someone else.

Cinnamon, Hassan’s favorite dancer, but one night, things go too far between her and Hassan.   What will this mean for their time at Sugar Hill and their relationship?

Victoria, Dawn’s assistance, who feels that she cannot compete with the other women she works with due to her weight.   She has always felt uncomfortable around them and when a man pays her some attention, she has a hard time believing in him.

Ivan, Hassan’s friend and basketball player, is playing the court and the ladies.  But when his eyes catch sight of Victoria, he is determined to have her.

My Opinion:

I will preface this review by saying I got to 56% of the book before I quit reading.

The reasons I quit reading are as follows:

Everyone seemed to be cheating and playing around with everyone else, regardless of marital or single status.  I was having trouble keeping track of who was doing who as they were moving around so much.

I felt like the story was not really developed.  The characters were jumping from bed to bed without a lot of story in between.

There was no type of indication of time and it would skip ahead days or weeks without a text break or any other indication that the time was changing.

The language was difficult to follow as there was a lot of slang from New Jersey/New York area that didn’t make any sense to me.

Ebooks and Erotica: A Match Made in Electronic Heaven

I have to say, I love my Kindle.  And one of the main reasons is that it makes it much nicer if I am reading a romance or an erotica novel.  I’m not ashamed to read these, but when you use public transit every day to get to and from work, and people sit with you, it’s not always comfortable reading a book with half naked people on the front of it.  And trust me, they will see the cover at some point.

A Kindle DX Graphite by AmazonWith my Kindle, or any other type of ereader, you can read in private.  Yes, if they were leaning over and reading over your shoulder they would know what you were reading, but chances are they are not going to get that quite close to you.  And really, if they do, well, they deserve to see what you are reading.

Another great perk of an ereader is that you can likely download a free on onto whatever electronic device you have.  A tablet, a computer, a smartphone, most of these have the capability to download books that you can read with you wherever you go.  And many libraries offer systems that will allow you to borrow books from them so you do not have to even step into the library to borrow your erotica.

My plan is to write some erotica.  I have ideas at this point but they have not formed into a point where they are a story.  A few are getting there but they need to be expanded on and drawn out.  500 words does not a story make.  that said, once they are ready, they will be published on the Kindle format and maybe a few other formats if I can figure them out.  And then you can freely read them on your reader without having to worry about what others think.

If you do not have a kindle, that is fine.  There are free apps that you can download on your electronic devices or onto your computer.
