After opening a wildly successful "full-service spa" in Reno that caters to professional women (which turned the world's oldest profession on its head), Lydia Beaucoup and her friends Acey Allen and LaShaWanda P. Marshall decide to grow their business—with a new spa on a boat moored off the shore at Martha's Vineyard. In this unique haven for pampering, in addition to massage and reflexology, clients can purchase fabulous, multi-orgasmic safe sex from men specifically trained to please women. But selling sex is never easy—and insatiable clients, mob extortion, and a repressive federal government are just a few of the problems threatening to take down A Sister's Spa.
Smart, sizzling, and wickedly funny, Let's Get It On is an outrageous tale of pushing traditional envelopes in pursuit of empowerment—and a witty, forthright look at what women really want.
Now playing: the second verse of Nelson's wildly popular debut (Sexual Healing), with Marvin Gaye again providing the thematic backup for the over-the-top sexual shenanigans and ribald politics embraced by the proprietors of A Sister's Spa. This time out, Yale-educated lawyer LaShaWanda P. Marshall, and fellow spa founders Lydia Beaucoup and Acey Allen recreate their successful unorthodox Reno, Nev., spa on a boat moored off Martha's Vineyard. As Wanda puts it: "We were offering women multiorgasmic sex without the complications or mating, dating, or a relationship, and they were hungry for it," In Martha's Vineyard, the crew appeals to the established black community to open its arms to the new business while battling a mobster trying to shake them down, a racist madman in their midst and a president who aims to outlaw anything but sex-for-procreation with a bill called "No Child, No Behind." It's a dopey mix of overbroad sexual and racial politics, but the sisters still manage to sizzle-and elicit smiles with their insatiable appetites for love, social justice and the sex trade.

Dreamed up and opened in Nelson's Essence best seller, Sexual Healing, A Sister's Spa is an unconventional business where professional women clients can get a relaxing facial, a massage, reflexology, and a multiorgasmic sexual experience from men trained to please women. Located in Reno, this outrageously successful spa is the brainchild of a group of shrewd friends: Lydia Beaucoup, Acey Allen, and LaShaWanda P. Marshall. After winning a three-million-dollar settlement, LaShaWanda and her friends open a franchise on a yacht off the shores of Martha's Vineyard. But the new franchise comes with new challenges. The federal government is trying to ban sex between unmarried people, the mob wants a cut of the spa's profits, and the yacht becomes the setting for a potential political coup. VERDICT Nelson takes her fans on a sexual fantasy showing that women can be in control and mix business with pleasure. Readers of Zane, Mary B. Morrison, and Eric Jerome Dickey will enjoy Nelson's funny, voluptuous, and erotic tale.—Carol Johnson, Cleveland P.L.

After the success of their Reno brothel and spa (see SEXUAL HEALING) LaShaWanda P. Marshall, Lydia Beaucoup and Acey Allen decide to duplicate their achievement off of Martha's Vineyard. Once again they offer their wealthy female clients "multiorgasmic" sex without the complications". While Acey with Odell assisting her runs the Nevada spa, they set up a luxury floating spa on a yacht off the Cape Cod shore just outside the United States legal limit. ---------
They turn to the black community of Lydia's upper class society godmother Ma Nicol for support as they run into objections from a mobster who demands a piece of the action and groups fostering racism and sexism. Their star performer is Afrodonis who make the ladies salivate. However, making matters even worse is the fundamentalist president calling for a law "No Child, No Behind" that outlaws sex unless a married couple tries to produce an offspring.------------
The second homage to Marvin Gaye continues Jill Nelson's upbeat message encouraging women to appreciate life by living and loving to the fullest to include seeking sexual satisfaction. The story line is over the top of Afrodonis' staff just the way we like it as LET'S GET IT ON is fun to read with its refrain of sex, sex, and more sex. Although the abstinence crowd will beat the bushes to ban this tale, Ms. Nelson makes a case that sex and politics share the same key element: someone is screwing someone else.------
