Overview

Eric Jerome Dickey, author of fourteen New York Times bestselling novels, imagines the formative college years of one of his most popular heroines, Nia Simone Bijou. This Penguin Special includes a preview of Decadence, coming April 2013.

From her first days at Virginia’s Hampton University, impressionable, creative Nia falls smitten with Chris Eidos Alleyne, an athlete and a scholar.

“Love is sweet nothings and beautiful promises,” Nia writes in her journal. What her girlfriends know, and her mother doesn’t, is that Chris’s expression of love is deeply physical. Wielding powerful charisma, Chris soon has Nia abandoning innocence for experience.

Believing that Chris will reward her sacrifices with lifelong commitment, Nia thrills to her newfound pleasures. She knows in her heart that each act of intimacy draws them ever closer. But when the Big Man on Campus learns to take what is freely given, without regard to love, Nia finds herself newly enrolled in Heartbreak 101.

The Education of Nia Simone Bijou is a rousing tale of youthful passion, once kindled, never extinguished.

I fell in love with Nia Simone in 2008 with Pleasure and I've fallen in love all over again. This book is sharp and seductively sexy in every aspect of the word. The passion and fire between Chris and Nia is sexually erotic, heavenly in intense, and sophiscated enough to warn your heart of the trials and troubles of being in love. Nia Simone is a beautiful woman on a whirlwind journey of discovering life and love in a chaotic world. I am Nia and so are my sisters. I loved this short presquel to Pleasure and now I'm ready for dessert in Decadence. EJD never fails, never gets old, keep mind sexing me, and making you fall in love with such authentic humane characters in every novel!!

I have read a lot if this author's books and never got irritated like I did with this one. Story was all over the place and did not get a proper ending. Also, I have never ran into anyone that talked the way this character did. The words are fine but they way she was talking was irritating. Basically they could have kept this.

Thought-provoking and sensual, this book sneak attacked my five senses and tickled my sixth. I appreciate EJD because he doesn't just create best sellers, his style actually evolves with each book. If you are not into history, mythology, and true literature, he gives you a quick lesson for future reference. He challenges you to educate yourself!!! He is an author I don't mind spending 20-30 dollars on when new releases hit the stores. Loved it!!! If you're not buying his books, you're cheating yourself. -drea
