'January Jackson and Friends: The Premiere' was super hot and steamy, with a well developed and original story line.

"TAKE ME DERRICK...I CAN'T TAKE NO MORE TORTURE..." - Charlene

"In due time baby girl...we have all night long" - Derrick

This novel is quite intriguing as it is told from different points of view of from the main characters. This is very clever in keeping the story fresh and providing a deeper insight into each character. At the beginning of the novel, through the narration of January Jackson, we are provided with thorough descriptions of her life and surroundings. She also provides character descriptions of her friends, which gives an insight into exactly what kind of people they are. This allows for familiarisation and connection to the characters which most other authors in the erotica genre fail to do.

January and her crew are a refreshing mix of street smarts and attitude, as well as high flying ladies who know how to live the good life. The novel follows their love and adventures with a good dose of erotica.

This is a very Hip / Urbane contemporary novel which features devices like colloquial language and pop culture which makes is stand out. I must admit, this is the very first African-American themed book I have read, and it was a total surprise! From chapter two I was so into it that I read it all in one go - and forgot most of my housework!!! I felt like I was reading about real people and their situations!

The erotica is extremely HOT! There were lots of steamy scenes and intense moments of pure pleasure! Like some other readers have commented, I think Zonie Felder has a really unique writing style and she could easily try her hand at many genres and be successful. I am looking forward to her next novel.

A highly accomplished female dominated work . The characters are uniformly likeable and easy to connect with .Writer Zonnie Felder cuts from scene to scene with direction and pace letting each sequence play out and come together with plausibility and imagination.

One of the most refreshing aspects of this book is the sharpness of dialogue and skilful story structure which has depth and lucidity .

The writing is good and goes way beyond the usual and inherent one dimensionality so prevalent in this genre .
It would be remiss not to mention the open mouthed erotica but equally wrong to suggest this is the substance of the narrative . The book works on several layers with shades of meaning, tempo and emotion.
Will appeal to a mixed audience and not just those who favour a little sauce and sass on their reading matter . A promising debut .

Zonie Felder- you have a new fan! This book was recommended to me by a gal pal who shares some of my tastes in books, and she was right on the mark with this one. The plot, characters and dialog are all superb and believable- Zonie has a gift for telling a story and pulling you in. The erotic scenes are particularly well-written, and made me feel more like a voyeur than a reader- this book is that hot! I'm so very happy to have discovered such a fine author, and I anxiously await the next book. Brilliant- five stars.

Very good story of more than sex with other stuff going on just to get to the sex. But the sex is frickin' hot. I will never think of peppermint the same way again. I had never thought of such a thing . . . and that's rare a book teaches me something about sex. Think Smilla's Sense Of Snow was one of the last books to do that. However there are characters and plot here unfolds multi-dimension-ally. But hot sex is good too.

January Jackson & Friends is a spectacular book. Zonie Felder really knows how to tell it so well with her wonderful gift for weaving a gripping web of words. I was without a doubt caught up in the magic that she set forth on every page. If I had pick one word to describe this read it would have to be...spellbinding!! She is truly a talented writer who knows just how to put together a story to draw you in so deep that you feel like you are there. I would put this on my best read list in a second, highly recommended.

This author is amazingly creative and imaginative, and has created some very intriguing, fascinating characters who all get around in one giant soap-opera stew, getting up to all kinds of mischief. I love the descriptions of the flash cars and estates and stately homes in the book, and the self-indulgent lives of the very wealthy.

The "love" scenes are extremely hot, steamy and satisfying! You are in for a wild ride so you'd better be "in the mood", and if you are in the mood, then look no further!! You will be spent and satisfied at the end!

The book centers around a group of characters and their involvement with each other, and each chapter is seen from the point of view of a different character, which makes it so interesting because you are reading the inner dialogue of multiple characters, not just one or two. You learn what they all really think of each other!

I have to say that this is one of the most exhilarating, entertaining, exciting, intriguing and enjoyable novels I've ever read. It is similar to a Stephen King novel in its rich, lavish and detailed descriptions and the way in which it is written to engage its readers and really grab and keep their attention. It runs a mile a minute and is very absorbing. It's definitely a very "naughty" adult read, and lets face it - sometimes all we want to do to let off steam is read about people behaving badly!

A highly entertaining and original book!!!
