"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

Editorial Reviews


Reviewed By Andrae Douglas for Readers' Favorite
Alicia L. Wright's work of fiction, Crushed Velvet, tells the story of a female college dropout (Teresa), who resorts to prostitution in order to make a living. The other main character in this romance sizzler is Andrew, the bodyguard assigned to protect her during her sexual liaisons. The plot intensifies as Andrew sees Teresa as more than a prostitute and has her best interest at heart. It is no surprise that she later falls for the most genuinely caring man she has ever met. The two grow closer together and express themselves freely to each other; however, freedom isn't much of a reality since Teresa is bound to her employers via a contract.

Crushed Velvet is an exciting fiction novel. When it comes to heat, fire and intensity, Alicia L. Wright only steers in one direction; and that's UP! Line after line, page after page are filled with sexual acts, thoughts, memories and teasingly satisfying sex talk. Though a fiction novel, the sexual situations presented are consistent with that of the real world. Be it consensual sex or rape, Wright uses words to paint a graphic image that puts the reader right there in the story. This book was intriguing and kept my curiosity piqued as Wright flirted through the story line. Crushed Velvet at times appears to be straightforward sex, then Wright presents a twist as if to play hard to get. This book is about far more than sex; it is an adventure.

From the Author

Everybody has a story, especially those who write stories. Recent events led me to reflect on my own past, and I felt compelled to put those feelings into a story. As an abuse survivor, I know how hard it can be to explain to other people just how lost in your head you can get. Why just leaving or just moving on, or just getting over it, doesn't work.

There's a certain type of acceptance one falls into when traumatized. A person can firmly believe that this is the only way life can be for them. Even if you are drowning, you don't make waves. This is why in my book Teresa deals with things the way she does. 

I didn't write this book for the general erotica audience. I wrote this for those who are not afraid to read a story that gets in-your-face about sexual abuse, about people who obsess over other people. And the things a girl will do to keep her head above water.
