At the age of fourteen, Desiree "Dez" Nichols didn't just come out the closet, she kicked the door open, forever changing the dynamics of her family. Hit and run, smash and grab, stick and move was Dez's motto, leaving many satisfied women behind. Her friends and family then couldn't be more surprised when she ran off to see the world with her lover...her MALE lover. Every good thing must come to an end and that end comes quickly two years later when lover boy decides to dump a devastated Dez. Still reeling from their break up, her anxieties compound when she gets a phone call from home. Her mom has the big C - ovarian cancer. Dez returns home to be by her mother's side. She gets reacquainted with old friends and meets a new one, her twin brother's best friend, Victoria Jackson. Knowing his sister's reputation and sexual antics, he doesn't want Victoria to be just another conquest, dismissed and forgotten. But the attraction between the two is undeniable.

A Taste of Sin offers readers more than just a taste of Fiona's talent and creativity. Those who enjoyed her debut novel, Bliss, will definitely find delight in her sophomore effort. Brash and sassy yet vulnerable Dez made for an interesting and likeable character. I also liked Dez's group of friends. I'd love to see more written about them, particularly Remi. A character driven plot, titillating sex scenes, raw and well-written, A Taste of Sin is an engrossing and entertaining read.

Use this link for the video review : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VczxIiYaaU Zedde tells a mesmeric tale of lust set in the backdrop of Miami. I am attracted to erotica in which I can potentially expand my own sexual horizons by learning something new or have a voyeuristic peek into things that I am incapable of experiencing (ie, lesbian relationships). I read this book wide eyed. Like a young boy who falls upon his fathers nudie magazine collection for the first time as he thumbs through the pages quickly while keeping both ears open and glancing over his shoulder repeatedly hoping that they don't get caught. Fiona does not give us a...taste...of sin. Ohhh no! She stuffs the reader with a banquet of it. I must say after reading this book I am...very...satisfied. However, although I enjoyed the intensity, passion, and remorseless...sinning...of the women that Ms. Zedde created in this hedonistic tale. I am more impressed with Fiona's writing style. At times her words literally dance on the page with a life of their own. It's official. I am now a Fiona Zedde fan. Great book. Great writer. Five stars. Euftis Emery Author of Off the Chain

I loved Bliss but A Taste of Sin has cemented Ms Zedde's place as a premiere author of lesbian fiction. A Taste of Sin combines erotic story telling with a hint of romantic poetry. Fiona Zedde's work inspires love, romance and sexual freedom. I cannot wait to read more of this talented author's work!!!

I first discovered 'A Taste of Sin' about a month ago while walking through the book store. I was skeptic at first cause i have read some really bad lesbian fiction titles in the past, but something about this book kept grabbing my attention. From the first page i was engulfed in the characters and the many places they visited. It was as if i was in this world of women, sex, and money! The title character Desiree Nichols, was very well developed. You feel her pain and longing and hope that she gets the girl and the life she left behind back throughtout the whole book. If your looking for a novel thats sensual, seductive, and very satisfying you must read 'A taste of Sin'. I honestly couldnt put it down!

This book is horrible. I think that the author thought if she put a lesbian sex scene on every other page that this book would be a success well she was mistaken. I really didnt mind a few of the sex scenes but it wasnt written well at all. I would not read any of her other works.
