They each give her something she is needing.
Finally going for help, she spills her all to her therapist.
But want once was fun, is now tearing her apart. Zoe is a sex addict, but why? How did this all come about?
When everything starts crumbling around her and her secrets arent secrets no more, can James and Zoe keep their marriage going. Can James finally give his wife what she is seeking in their bedroom.
This is the first book I've read by an Afracian-America author. As well as a book that all the main characters are the same race. This book was pronominal. It keeps you engaged, keeps you turing the page. And finally saying "I didn't see that coming." An absolutely amazing read.
still they are not satisfied. She risked her family and ultimately her life for sexual gratification. Was it really worth it ? Is sex that important in a loving relationship ? Questions to ponder. The ending seemed a little rushed but the plot twist was a good one. Reading this book now it seems so tame. Back then it was one of the first books to explore African American erotica. I would recommend this book. I can't wait to see the characters on the big screen.
The story is about Zoe. A successful woman who has it all. A thriving business, beautiful children, a dream house and a doting husband. Yet, she is miserable and harboring a secret that threatens to destroy her. Zoe is a sex addict and has been cheating on her husband for months. The story is about how her addiction nearly destroys her life. It sounds like a great premise for a novel. I just wish that some of the issues dealt with in the book were treated more seriously and realistically. I didn't buy into the main character's reasons for being so unhappy in her marriage, nor did I buy into her husband's reasons for not being more adventurous in the bedroom. I didn't buy into her sex addiction or the stated cause either. I didn't buy into it because she had emotional connections to her lovers. She would become angry and jealous when she found out that they were sleeping with other people besides her. Perhaps I would have believed it more had she also engaged in random hook-ups with total strangers or sought out more "deviant" sexual practices. Cheating on your husband because he refuses to engage in oral sex is not exactly "deviant" and it doesn't make you a "nymphomaniac" or a "sex addict". Yes, the cheating is a problem, but her actual sexual desires seemed rather tame and normal to me and the book presents them as if she is abnormal or deviant because of them. It would have been cool if the therapist that she was seeing had mentioned this to her.
I think the ultimate unbelievable aspect was the ending. I know that I shouldn't give away the ending in a review, but I really do think this is important enough to mention. Don't read any further if you don't want ending spoilers..........
I simply cannot believe that a husband who is supposedly sexually repressed would suddenly change his tune about sex after witnessing his wife being raped by one of her crazed ex-lovers who breaks in and tries to kill them both. I realize that it's just fiction, but using rape as a plot device to heal those types of issues didn't sit well with me at all. Rape is a potentially traumatizing experience, not a catalyst for a supposed sexual awakening. I really wanted to like this, but there were some things that I just couldn't bring myself to overlook.

Based on the synopsis I was expecting a really outrageous story yet nothing excessively scandalous or shocking happened.Read more
