Product Description
New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey returns with a flaming-hot stand-alone set in the world of conmen and thieves.

We can plan all we want, but sometimes fate has a different agenda...

Dmytryk was a respectable man...once. College educated, happily married, a stable job at a car factory in Detroit. He's the king of the world with nowhere to go but up. But when a crippling recession annihilates the auto industry, Dmytryk and his wife Cora suddenly find themselves without jobs. And after two years of trying to live honestly, they begin to realize that honesty just doesn't pay the bills.

Afraid of losing her home and her marriage, Cora compromises her faith and makes some choices that she isn't proud of. And when a powerful and ruthless crime boss named Eddie Coyle gives them an opportunity to buy back their old lives, Cora urges Dmytryk to man up. All he has to do is join Eddie's crime ring and rob some banks: two minutes, in and out, nobody gets hurt. Torn between desperation and his moral integrity, Dmytryk gives in, but no sooner does he enter a life of crime than Cora abandons him, taking with her his dreams for a better life and disappearing without a trace.

Now, more determined than ever to get his life back on track, Dmytryk is only one bank job away from having enough money to leave Eddie Coyle and find Cora. But when the job goes dangerously wrong, he realizes yet again that destiny has another plan for him. Forced into seclusion with one of his partners-a dangerous and damaged woman with a plan of her own-Dmytryk wonders if he'll ever find his way back to his old life. And in the end, will he even want to? ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Trouble May Last Always
Well with today's economy the way it is, you can also sympathize with unemployed, ex white collar worker and now bank robber Dmytryk Knight (that name spelling had me going for a minute) saga . Knight is a brother forced into crime by the poor Detroit economy and lifestyle demands of his wife Cora aka Trouble. Cora introduces her husband to one of her clients Eddie Coyle, a criminal mastermind in bank robbery, whom she met at a club where she dances part time as a dancer name "Trouble" to make ends meet. Once Knight starts serving as the driver for a series of bank robberies for Coyle, Cora aka Trouble walks out on him, but Dymtryk whose heart is still in his marriage is bent on reconciling and finding her. The robberies continues and thins go into full swing from there, you can expect the murder, mayhem, betrayal, seductions to follow as to be expected in Dickey's books.

Wow its no surprise to me that I read this book in a day. All of Eric Jerome Dickey's books are that way with me. I just love the way allows readers to get into the tormented minds of his characters and once you connect , it's on and popping....full fledge action and drama ahead. It's funny how he you actually liking the bad guys, sympathizing with their plight. That's great writing to me.

Another Best seller as usual for Eric Jerome Dickey

4-0 out of 5 stars Desperate times
Tempted by Trouble introduces the reader to Dmytryk Knight, his wife Cora and his partners in crime. Dmytryk is an out of work former executive who turned to assembly line work and was eventually laid off from that job once the economy went belly up. In the process, Cora has turned to stripping to help keep the bills afloat. While Dmytryk is struggling to maintain his parents home, his marriage and his sanity in Detroit, he learns of his wife's latest occupation which drives him insane. One night while stripping, Cora meets the who she believes to be the answer to her prayers, Eddie Coyle. After that chance encounter, Cora introduces Dmytryk to him and his gang for a job that went against everything, but at the same time, taking the job as a getaway man for robbing banks, would save everything he been struggling to hold on to.

Tempted by Trouble is slow moving tale of one man's struggle to overcome the economy by taking a job his education never prepared him for. As the saying goes, there is no honor among thieves and Tempted by Trouble definitely delivered on that prospect. What I would've liked to have had was more background information on Dymtryk, like was he suffering from schizophrenia or was it all because of the massive guilt he was dealing with? The two part ending surprised me, but it also refers back to his mental wellbeing. Another book, with Dmytryk would be most helpful to figure out who he really is.

4-0 out of 5 stars Desperation or Opportunity
In Tempted by Trouble by Eric Jerome Dickey, Dmytryk Knight and his wife, Cora, have done everything by the book to live out the American dream and life was golden for them until the auto industry tanks, and they both find themselves unemployed. Still, wanting to live the golden life, the couple gets creative with their skills and do what is necessary to try to hold the creditors at bay. But, this has a negative effect on the couple's relationship and Cora, who becomes wary of the efforts needed to just hold on, tells Dmytryk to "man up" to an opportunity to make fast money. So, for the love of his wife, Dmytryk decides to meet with Eddie Coyle to better understand the opportunity and realizes he was in without an out, once Cora mentioned him to Eddie. Well, now Cora is gone without a trace and Dymtryk needs just enough money to get his life back on the right track and find Cora. But, the best plans always need a backup and with the twisted turn of events, Dymtryk will either need several backup plans or does he really have everything under control?

I enjoyed this fast-paced thriller and from page one the story unfurls like watching a classic 1950's style Hollywood crime film. All of the characteristics of a mystery noir was present; tough, cynical characters with self-destructive tendencies, female characters of questionable virtue, betrayals and double-crosses, use of sex and jealousy to advance the plot, and a pessimistic tone to an already bleak story.

Tempted by Trouble has all of the elements fans of Eric Jerome Dickey have come to expect in his stories. The excellent voice of the narrator, Dymtryk, reveals just enough for me to understand his thoughts but yet not too much so the twists and turns of the story kept me turning the pages.I enjoyed the secondary characters, and using Eddie Coyle for the name of the head boss of the crime team will have mystery film lovers chuckling. Lastly, there is the well-crafted language and excellent locale description.

I recommend this book to readers of mystery noir novels and fans of Eric Jerome Dickey who enjoy following his writing journey.

5-0 out of 5 stars CAN YOU SAY MOVIE?
Been a big fan of EJD since day 1. And I like the direction EJD took with the Gideon series. Im a female who likes action movies and this could definately become a blockbuster hit if the right screenplay writer/producer/director picked it up. Action packed, still sexy, so descriptive I could imagine each scene clearly. It left room at the end for a follow up, but didn't leave you hanging to the point where a follow up is necessary. Like wine, you get better with time EJD.

Wow..I am not one for alot of violence, but this book had me on the edge of my seat.I had to skip over the spanish parts, but OMG, once the action started, it did not let up.The characters in this book are what you call true soliders and I would hate to go against anyone of them, including the females.EJD, you can't end the book like this, there has to be a sequel....

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
I was introduce to E. Jerome Dickey via "The Other Woman". This introduction is one I shall never forget! I have been hooked every since on this ride of crime, thrills, frills, and unbridled passion. His books are vivid and it feels as though you are in the middle of the action. When I put the either of his books down to take a tend to everyday chores, it feels as though I am missing a movie. I have to remind myself that it is a book and I can pick up where I left off, :). Thank you EJD for all that you do!


4-0 out of 5 stars EJD is a Master at his craft!!!
The only thing that kept me from giving it five stars was the extent of the use of profanity.I get that he was going for realistic scenarios and conversations but the amount of profanity was kind of over the top for me.

But on to the positive...Eric Jerome Dickey is a great storyteller.I absolutely loved this story. I thought it was very sad all the way around and though I liked Jessica the absolute least I still felt bad for her and found a hard time pegging any one character as the bad guy, I really felt for all of them.Through out the book I was rooting for forgiveness and reconciliation, and though it didn't come in the form I hoped for, I think she definitely forgave them and went on to reconcile the relationship she had with herself most importantly.I liked David Lawrence.He was passionate about his work and his woman.He had a very strong, abrupt, honest and to the point personality, telling it like was the whole time, a quality severely lacking in Charles. Though David Lawrence obviously had issues of his own to deal with he was by far my favorite character.

Kudos to Mr. EDJ for yet another brilliant work of art!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Such a good plot, but he just couldn't bring it! It was ok
This is my first book by Eric Jerome Dickey. There is no doubt about it that he can write! He has talent. The book was ok. The plot intrigued me from the beginning. I just feel like he fell short. He just didn't deliver it well enough for me. The sex scenes were steamy and poetically written with class. Very nice. However, the conversations sometimes could get alittle boring between the woman & her friend. The ending of this book was the best part with the unexpected event that occurs. It was a good surprise ending. I will definitely read more books by E.J.D. I have ''cheaters'' already sitting on my book shelf waiting to be read.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not his best work...
I purchased this book...and managed to finish it in less than 2 days. Normally, that would imply that it was a great read. Not so much the case with this book. It had it's moments where it got interesting, but I feel alot of it was just filler. I found myself constantly wishing the story would move along and be over with. I am a big fan of EJD..but this was not one of his best books. I will say the beginning was good, the ending was good. The in-between...not so much. Just bought another book by him "Pleasure"...hope it's better than this one! ... Read more

Ok people, I have read your reviews and have purchased this book.This book is moving very slow for me...I am trying to stick to it so I can get to the parts where you all talk about it being so good.I will write again once I'm done but at this point, I am really thinking about putting it DOWN.

(6/21)Ok people, I have finished reading this book and I have to say it was very slow, it took too long to get to the point, and he was just too descriptive.I was not impressed and I can say I am done with Gideon right now.Please, enough already please go back to your earlier writing style.I will not purchase another sequel to Gideon.

4-0 out of 5 stars Dying For Revenge
//Dying for Revenge//, the third installment in the Gideon series, is a strong departure from early Dickey. Less emotional drama and more fast-faced action, steamy, exciting, sex scenes, seedy characters, and a wicked revenge plot.Action explodes from the very first page, in a wild roller-coaster ride through the seedy underbelly of international crime.

Professional assassin, Gideon thought he was finally safe on the warm beaches of the Cayman Islands. Too bad he left a little unfinished business at home. When a cold-blooded woman hired him to kill her husband in Detroit, he never should have let his emotions get in the way of doing the job.Now the Lady from Detroit is city's mayor with money and power to spare. She will stop at nothing to destroy Gideon.

Knowing he won't be safe until his enemy is destroyed, Gideon turns the tables when the hunted becomes the hunter.Dodging hired assassins, a seasoned killer known as El Matador and his ruthless wife, Gideon crosses the globe from the gritty streets of Detroit to the flash of London to palm trees and white sands of the Caribbean to destroy the Lady from Detroit before she destroys him.

5-0 out of 5 stars a great read
I owned like the first 10 books that Dickey wrote; I was hard fan. Then he began to bore me. ALOT! A good friend suggested this novel; I was a little hesitant at first. I'm VERY glad that I read it. It was tastefully erotic-not just a "sex sells" book. A great story line...good material...great read.

4-0 out of 5 stars Eric Jerome Dickey's wildest book yet
I was a bit hesitant when I heard that PLEASURE was erotic fiction, since I have always imagined this genre to be full of plotless stories. But as one reads PLEASURE, one will find out that there is more to the book than just plain sex. Yes, Nia Simone Bijou makes her living as a writer who dabbles in erotic fiction and admires the writings of Anais Nin, who was famous for her erotica. But there is a plot! The themes and storylines are not as simple as I had expected them to be, and as readers will discover, the characters are multi-dimensional and help create the fascinating story that plays out.

Nia is having an erotic fantasy when she receives a text message from her ex-boyfriend Logan. It doesn't take long to figure out that Logan is stalking her; he can't accept that their relationship is over and that she has moved to a different state to get rid of him. Still, he continues to pursue her, which only angers her every time he tries to contact her. Thank God he doesn't know where she lives...

We then move to a scene with Nia going for a run when she spots a really fine-looking black man. Surprise! She finds out that he's one of two identical twin brothers. Their meeting is the first of many future encounters that opens up a new world of sexual delights for Nia, and as she gets acquainted with the siblings, she realizes that she likes them both but for different reasons. One is married, but he is able to touch her soul and she relates to him on a deeper level. The other brother has a rougher edge; he is single but has a past that still haunts him. A tattoo of KENYA is his secret, and she's a woman he cannot let go.

The sex doesn't just involve the two brothers. Nia is introduced to a female friend of single brother Karl, and soon it's Nia, Karl and Kiki Sunshine having the most sensuous day Nia has had in a long time. She is attracted to Kiki's beauty, but it's a one-on-one encounter later on between the two of them that gets Nia excited. She can't get Kiki off her mind. And it doesn't end there. The three of them meet up with Mark, the married brother, making it a foursome.

It's a lot of fun and sexual fantasies come true, until a complication enters the picture. Mark's wife happens to be Jewell Stewark, a television morning-show reporter in Atlanta. On TV Jewell appears to be a very classy and sophisticated woman, a professional who is well-liked and beloved by all. But when Nia encounters Jewell by accident as she and Karl are driving to his condo, Jewell appears on the scene and it's not pretty. Jewell yells and screams at Karl, embarrassing both him and Nia. Why is there such anger coming from Jewell? Jewell's story is the missing link when it comes to Karl and Mark, and until Nia understands how Jewell fits into the picture, she will continue to wonder why Mark is married to such an awful person. Why won't Mark leave his wife if he says he's so unhappy? And what does Karl have to do with Jewell?

PLEASURE is Eric Jerome Dickey's wildest book yet, filled with hot, erotic, over-the-top exhibitions of sex any which way you want. But the novel also concerns a woman's search for happiness as she explores her sexual side, while at the same time coming to terms with a relationship that had gone wrong. The subplot involving the twins and their story of tangled love is tawdry as it is tragic. Dickey has written a fast-moving book that readers will not be able to put down. I'm recommending PLEASURE for all true Dickey fans and for those who want to add a little spice to their reading.

3-0 out of 5 stars It was okay
I am a big fan of ejd and i understand that this book is in a different genre that most ejd fans are accustomed to. ejd did something different and is evolving as writer. he is stepping out of his norm and exploring different stories and different characters and for that i can appreciate it. However with this book i was on the fence. i kept reading it more out of curiosity of what was going to happen to the characters. it is erotica folks of course the main subject of the story was going to be sex. what were you expecting? my only beef is that knowing how much of a good writer ejd is i was looking for both a good erotic book along with a good subject and plot. the story just fell flat and toward the end of the book i had no care or sympathy for the characters. usually with an ejd novel i am left still thinking about the characters and the story but not with this one. as one reviewer already said, how could you let your brother sleep with the woman you loved and still marry her knowing she wished that you were someone else? and if you really loved your wife, how could you let yourself get emotionally and physically attached to someone else? all of the characters in this book is just plain dumb in my opinion. i wished that end the end that some way they all realized what they have done and what they were doing take responsibility for their actions. oh well better luck next time ejd, can't wait for Tempted by Trouble to be released in August!!!!!

This book is very different from the rest of his books.Expecting what I've normally read from Eric Jerome Dickey, this took some getting use to.So if this is your first time reading a book by him I suggest reading some of his earlier books to get a feel for what people are usually talking about when they describe him.However, this book was still good and I like the fact that the author is branching out and trying new things.

This is the second EJD book i have read (the first being Chasing Destiny) and i'm still a fan. This book started off good but had alot of unanswered questions that kept you reading. The only thing about the first five chapters is the constant sex or talking about sex or thinking about sex. Every time this happened, it lasted for about 2-3 pages. The ending was predictable, I had heard of a twist and it became quite clear what it was. It is an easy read, I finished in about 2 days.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pleasing to My Literary Senses!
The Author is gifted to say the least and I truly enjoy being able to live vicariously through the characters from within the pages of his novels. Reading is my escape from the here and now; so, while waiting for his next book (Gideon Series) to hit the shelves, I decided to go back and order some of the titles that I haven't read. Naughty or Nice has not failed to please my senses and I can't wait to read what the next sentence will bring. The author has the ability to keep you hanging onto his every word from opening chapter to the last. Although I have not finished the book, I'm hanging onto every word. In my mind there is no doubt as to why he's one of The New York Times best selling Authors. R. A. Davis avid reader of African-American fictional works of literary art.

5-0 out of 5 stars Oldie but Goodie: A naughty holiday treat.
Naughty and Nice

This review includes potential spoilers...read at your own discretion.

Eric Jerome Dickey's Naughty and Nice is not your average holiday romance novel. Centering around the three McBroom sisters, who all are fighting their internal demons, this book moves the reader through an eventful Christmas season that will not soon be forgotten. Frankie is the oldest sister who can not be satisfied by any man, because the one man that held her heart has a chosen a wife, and it's not her. Livvy's husband is essentially caught in the act when his mistress threatens him with a paternity case and his wife gets the letter in her hand. In search of reconciling her feelings about her husband's possible love child, she finds herself in the middle of a twisted affair of her own. Tommie is the baby of the sisters and due to a past abusive relationship she is left with the whole world to experience. Through her poetry and the help of a lonely neighbor, she gets another chance at love, but this time around she's found a man worthy of her love.

Naughty and Nice: A Holiday Novel is a good book to curl up with during Christmas break. In fact, this past Christmas, I did just that. I had been browsing through the discounted books section at Hastings when the title caught my attention about a month before the 2009 holiday season began. Because of the title, Naughty and Nice, I planned to give it away as a door prize at my Naughty and Nice Christmas party, but after a tug of war within myself I decided to add it to my collection and I'm glad I did.

Told from each sister's perspective, the three stories were sometimes funny, always passionate, and I could feel the pain these sisters were going through - Frankie was head over heals with a man and never told him exactly how she felt only to later find out that he was a newlywed. Livvy's husband cheated on her leading her into the realm of a warped universe that felt so good to be in, yet was so bad for her sanity. Finally, I felt like I was reliving past experiences through Tommie who seemed to be experiencing poetic love and relationships for the first time.

Snaps! As usually EJD brings the cheating, brings the passion, and brings lots and lots of drama. Anytime a book leaves me interested in what happens next for the characters, I have to give it top rating, so this book is recommended reading for the holidays, or any part of the year.

All of Dickey's books are fun to read. They really keep your interest all the way through them. I love the way he crosses some of the characters over into his other books.....just throws them in there even though it a stand alone story. I'm hooked and can't wait to read another one.

5-0 out of 5 stars I missed a few things the first time I read this book
This is one of my favorite books of all time.I came to Amazon to get other reader's perspective of the book because I just re-read it for the second time.The first time was about five years ago.I can't believe all the things I missed. Like all the work Arizona - now an intermediate grifter - put into setting up the scam.I missed that she was in cahoots with Sade to steal and ransom the book manuscript. I missed that she chose Driver based on his bank balance and criminal record.Still don't know how she knew to meet him at Back biters.Someone needs to fill me in on that.I missed that she made it look like the pick pocket had picked Freeman's pocket to get his hotel pass key.I missed that there was a contract between Sade and Freeman for her letting him use her book. I missed the conversation where Driver told Wolf that Lisa gave him a downpayment of $15 large to kill Wolf.

By the time Arizona turns up in Sleeping With Strangers, she is a triple A rated grifter.

These are not the kind of people one meets in real life.Most people haven't even seen these type of people.Maybe that is the appeal of this book.It's so far removed from a typical person's reality that it makes for an amazing escape from real life.

EJD - if you're listening, bring back Arizona in this type of book again.Wouldn't mind meeting up with Panther (for the third time), or Driver, or Rufus again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Driver past sin's
Drive me crazy was the first EJD book i have ever read and now i am a fan of his. That was a great book. It had comedy, action, betrayal, and drama. I felt the pain that driver was going through. He wanted everything that was offered to him. the cars, the woman, the house, the money, everything... but it came up to the universal question, can you kill someone for it?

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Entertainment
I have to admit that I'm surprised by this author.For nearly eight years I had refused to read his work because I had grouped him into a class he didn't belong in.I came to the table with preconceptions that I now struggle to remember what they were based on.Just one chapter told me EJD had skillz.I loved his turn of phrases and his unique way of describing women-from their walk to how they think.I'm certainly not from the school that every book I pick up I must be able to identify with the main characters.Train wreck driven characters can be quite fascinating.Sister Soulja's Winter.Victoria Christopher Murray's Jasmine.And even real life-the nonsense that is Britney Spears.
It was the same for me and Driver-a train wreck you can't turn away from.
A man who I thought deserved everything he was getting.How you gonna just befriend the man who's wife you messing with and even take him up for a job-Oh, a man you were supposed to be killing?This is great drama.Fiction is supposed to be about drama.
However, as well written this book may be-the second have does sort of fall apart.Suddenly-there's a whole lot of talking instead of the action that had drawn me in.The author seemed to be stalling toward the conclusion-and quite frankly I liked Lisa.That whole nonsense with Freeman-was just that.It was extremely anti-climatic-and that story line never did answer the question of why Driver was selected for that job.But overall, EJD has piqued my attention and I will be reading more from him in the near future. ...

It's almost scary how well Eric Jerome Dickey knows women. (Detroit News and Free Press)

What distinguishes Dickey from the rest of the pack is his hip prose. (Cincinnati Enquirer)Amazon.com Review
After a brief detour to New York City for Milk in My Coffee, EricJerome Dickey returns to Southern California for his fourth multi-trackAfrican American love story. The main story is a "he said, she said" affairbetween Stephan Mitchell, a well-to-do young software designer who'sdetermined not to let any one woman get in the way of his good time, andChanté Marie Ellis, who's decided to start turning the tables on men whotry to play her for a fool. From now on, she declares, "A dog gets what adog gets... dogged." Dickey makes their road to romance extremelyrocky; in addition to sorting out their own feelings for each other, bothStephan and Chanté have to contend with exes who have just gotten out of theirlives. Meanwhile, Stephan's best friend, Darnell, is having problems withhis marriage: he wants to be a writer, but his wife insists that he putaside the "hobby" to pay more attention to her. When he meets Chanté'sfriend Tammy, an up-and-coming actress-singer who not only understands Darnell'sartistic passion but encourages him, his commitment to marital fidelity ispushed to the limit.

As always, Dickey shows that he's on top of the current scene, pepperinghis characters' lives with the latest in black fashion and culture (if youever find yourself driving in the Los Angeles area, you'll know exactlywhat your radio presets should be). Although the ending might be a littletoo neatly wrapped up, you'll never know before you get there whether thenext chapter's going to contain romance, comedy, heartache--or maybe alittle of each. Dickey's at the top of his form in Cheaters,establishing yet another credential for his status at the top of thecontemporary urban romance heap.--Ron Hogan ... Read more

My book arrived 2 days after I placed the order. Conditon of the book was as desribed. Very pleased.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Reading
This book was very good. Kept me interested from start to finish. Will try more of his books.

3-0 out of 5 stars Dickey maintains his status quo. But fails to hit a home run.
Dickey usually provides you with nice, quick, reads, that are good if you need to pass time. However, that's about all you get with his books. As with his other novels, Dickey fails to create characters that the reader actually cares about. There seems to be a certain theme in almost all of his novels. Number one, they are usually centered around adults that only care about themselves and behave like teenagers. Number two, the lives of these adults seem to revolve around nothing but sex and narcissism. A mistake that Dickey makes all too often is throwing his characters into the bedroom too soon. We don't have anytime to develop an attachment to these characters, to feel like they are real people just like us. They seem like paper-doll cutouts that exist for one reason and one reason only, SEX.

Don't get me wrong, Dickey isn't a bad writer. However, his characters make you want to scream at how selfish and childish they can be. This is the type of behavior I would find acceptable for someone that was still in college, but not adults pushing 30


I haven't read all of Dickey's books, but if he hasn't already, I hope we get to read the story of what happened to Dawn after this mess. She was one of the only characters I found that I could stomach. I think it's a shame she got robbed at the end the way she did.

4-0 out of 5 stars moving on
I enjoyed reading this book.Although I felt there needed to be some closure to dawn and darnell's relationship, rather than walking out.maybe an argument or conversationabout how he wants out of the marriage, then him actually walking out saying "not to look for him" verbally rather than written in a letter.

I was disappointed how darnell down played the support his wife had given him and characterized it as her nagging about what she did for him when she tried to express herself about being lonely.she supported him by taking on the financial burden while he was in law school,he said himself how she would help him study and encourage him in his accomplishment.darnell was selfish and disrespectful towards his wife.he decides he wants to pursue yet another career, expecting her to take on the burden of the household again.he never measured up of being a man to his wife.he neglected her emotionally.i would expect what any wifewould, to have a husband, a man secure the household, rather than running around as if he has no care in the world.

some say he was a good man.not! what he did was cheat on his wife.he was no better than the rest of his friends.it is so easy to find comfort in something newand easy.marriage is not easy, but takes work and compromise.

i have no symphony for tammy, she is a homewrecker.if she really felt bad, she would have cut him off from the moment she found out he was married.

i don't understand why darnell just did not get a divorce from his wife since he found his so called soul mate.he respected her enough to begin the marriage, he should have respected her enough to let her know he wanted to move on. it disgusted me how he was in and out of the house going to see his other woman, without even denying it to his wife.instead he flaunted it in her face.

my ending would have them both walk away from the relationship and moving on without dawn seeming like a desperate woman to keep darnell.it should be noted how she moved on and had a successful career in real estate in ny.i wonder what will truly become of darnell and tammy.how much will their everlasting support last if one of them has to sacrafice their career over the other.somethings always gotta give.

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW read it in three days
EJD kept my attention with his characters and story lines. It was very true to life, and dispte people saying the negatives- it was very easy to read, follow, and get lost in the story. I could picture every image he created. It was eay to realte to every character even if you have neve experienced each situation. And lets not forget the sex,very real and erotic, but never over the top. EJD kepts it real, and real is what we want to read.I would definately suggest this book. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Boring!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a waste of time. I thought that this book was going to be good.It had its good parts but turned out to be a flop.Im sorry Jerome I only finished the book because I paid for it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Silly, Silly, Silly
This book started off OK, but took a turn for the worse and got very silly and unrealistic when one of the female characters climbs a building to get on a balcony, goes into the already opened balcony door, pulls out her gun, and catches her husband with another woman.Then with the gun still out, she asks for something to eat.She then just leaves the apartment while eating.

Some people think this is funny, but I think it is plain silly and a waste of my time!

Valerie and Inda are sisters. The products of a mixed coupled relationship. Valerie is fare skinned. Attributes taken from her white mother. She's married and miserable in a six year marriage to Walter. A black man who blames his lack of success on Valerie and what he feels is her lack of motivation. Inda takes her dark features from their father. She was once married to a white male and vowed to never let a man dictate the way she lives her carefree life ever again after finding out he cheated.

These two women are taken on a journey of soul searching and a new relationship with Chiquita whose just like a sister after some circumstances force them into each others lives. OK read.

Product Description
The sensational New York Times bestselling author of Between Lovers, Liar's Game, and Cheaters returns with an irresistible novel about grifters and con artists, brothers and sisters, looking for love and making ends meet-on the wrong side of the law.Amazon.com Review
In Thieves' Paradise, bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey weaves an engaging tale of betrayal, desperation, love, and loss seen through the eyes of Dante Black. Unemployed and down on his luck, Dante spends most of his time frequenting an L.A. diner where he hopes to win over Pam, an attractive waitress and actress wannabe. The rest of his time is spent reluctantly working for Scamz, a colorful character from Dante's past with a taste for illegal operations, beautiful women, and flashy cars. Rounding out this cast of clichéd yet well-developed characters is Dante's best friend, Jackson, who's deep in debt and eager for a quick solution. Throughout the novel, Dante drifts through seedy pool halls and lavish mansions as his friends quickly become enemies, lovers, and unbearable burdens.

My life had been mean and violent, so all of that colored my perception... Hard to find peace in a storm. I'd been waiting for the storm to leave me. Sometimes you had to leave the storm.

Always fresh, often perceptive, occasionally funny, and undeniably sincere, Thieves' Paradise proves yet again why Dickey continues to top the charts with each artful novel he crafts. --Gisele Toueg ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Loveable Dante
I really liked this book. I actually read it just to get some background on "Scamz, Arizona, and Sierra" who are characters from the Gideon series. I wanted to find out what it was about Scamz that had Arizona and Sierra at odds.

I didn't know that Dante was the main character until after starting on the book. I loved his character. He was written to be a man with flaws and a past but there was something very lovable about his character. His heart could be seen through his flaws. All in all he is a good man with some bad luck. Partially made by himself and partially gotten by circumstance. The relationships that he has with friends and lovers add depth to the story and to the man. And at the same time Eric makes the other characters evolve just enough so that they aren't just objects thrown into the mix but pieces to the story that add to the plot and make it complete. The story unfolds layer by layer until all is revealed at the end. It didn't quite end the way I would have wanted. I guess something in me always hopes for the perfect ending, but then that wouldn't be realistic. This was a good book and an easy read and I'd definitely recommend it to others.

3-0 out of 5 stars One soul for one's life
After reading a few of Eric Dickey's novels, you can tell that this was one of his earliest books. It was a good read, but its not really a book i would go back to as much as his others. It was interesting to see how the main character had to choose between saving his soul or saving his friend's life after a moment of stupidity on his part. But like i said, its not really one i would go and reach for all the time when i need a good book.

Product Description
Dana left New York to escape a roller-coaster relationship. Vincent is living in Los Angeles, trying to forget his own shattered marriage. They want to plan a future together-but first they have to stop running from their pasts. Eric Jerome Dickey, a rising star on the bestseller lists, delivers a boldly honest novel-about love that starts with a lie.

"Steamy romance, betrayal, and redemption. Eric Jerome Dickey at his best." (USA Today)

"[Liar's Game] really has the power." (Kirkus Reviews)Amazon.com Review
The women Vince Browne meets in Los Angeles all seem to want rich men,gorgeous brothers, men without pasts.After watching yet anotherromantic prospect walk away, he decides to be less than honestwith the next beautiful woman he meets: "I played the role and hid frommy memories, told Dana I was a black man working hard every day, assingle as a dollar bill, no kids, no ex-wives, no problems.With everyword I dug my hole deeper." Of course, Dana has a few secrets of her own,buther chemistry with Vince convinces her she that can just start over withoutsharing such details.When this new couple'sself-protective lies begin to unravel, they have to decide whether theyeven like each other--let alone how to overcome their hurt.One night inVince's apartment, after learning about his divorce, Dana jumps up to dial*69 aftersomeone calls and hangs up.

That was the first time she'd done that to me.There was adifference in her.In us.A hardness that comes when trusthas thinned.Both of us had flipped, become the other sideof a dented coin.Some sort of smile was on her face, but traces of her history were in her eyes.
Eric Jerome Dickey's devoted readers won't be disappointed withLiar'sGame.As in Cheaters and Milk in My Coffee, hiseasy, conversational style, his humor, his well-rounded characters, and hissexy plot twists will keep the pages turning.He is one of very fewwriters presenting diverse, realistic images of middle-class AfricanAmericans with everyday concerns about jobs and education, finding andkeeping love, raising responsible children, and staying alive in thecity.--Regina Marler ...

3-0 out of 5 stars There are plenty of Lies in love ....
I guess you can say that there is a difference between lying and just keeping quiet about things.Vince has some unresolved issues concerning his ex-wife and her husband and his daughter.Dana has some unresolved issues that she has been running away from traveling from New York to Los Angeles.As the tale unwinds you have some very interesting characters outside of Vince and Dana.You have all types of relationship issues.Without naming them and leaving that for you to read this book yourself, I will give you situations:You have the lesbians where one of them used to be married and is somewhat of a gypsy, they have you tripping through the whole story. You have the married couple who has been together for a long time, but they have become systematic and one is stepping out and the game plan begins, then you have the wanna be producer/rising star and the live in girlfriend/dancer/mother vs.the girl band and is he a stud or a real dud??You have the Dad/Granddad who is the wise patriarch of the family.You have the rising rapper driving around in the limo, spending boo coos of money, but tell me since he has it going on so strong, how come he still hasn't paid the money back to the girl he claims he is in love with and what is the twist on that scene.The story was greatly planned out and had all the angles for a great read, but it still fell short for me, just did not have the kick that I was looking for in Eric Jerome Dickey.Eric is a awesome writer, but this was not his best work.I still suggest you read it though. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent read
Dickey creates an enjoyable romance in a contemporary African-American setting (well semi-contemporary as the book takes place in the mid 90s). While the stories he creates have appeal there are some major pitfalls Dickey falls into that I see many contemporary African-American writers fall victim to as well. He creates two main characters (Shelby and Tyrel) that are very hard to like in my opinion. You feel like you're reading not because you feel any true connection and affection towards them, but just to see what happens, and as soon as you see whether they get back together or not you cease to care. He gives the reader very little incentive to finish the final 50 pages or so. I feel like the last part of the book was extra sex and drama that wasn't very necessary to the story itself. As far as characters go, Dickey creates a diverse cast of characters as always.

Leonard: By far the most likeable character in the entire book. He has a humorous personality and takes everything (even the negative) in stride.

Debra: A nurse who overall has a good heart and is extremely likeable the entire story. She has her moments towards the end where she is a bit unlikeable but if you read the book you can understand why and cut her some slack.

Tyrel: He starts out okay but slowly turns into a charcter I had a hard time caring about. Very arrogant and has very little moral standards.

Shelby: By far my LEAST favorite character in the book. She is arrogant, decietful, and always tries to play the victim. You get tired of her act real quick. I also dislike the turn Dickey made with her relationship with Richard towards the very end, I felt like it was to bail Shelby out and justify her treatment of him.

Overall, a good enough story to justify reading, but not one that will particularly leave the reader totally satisfied.

5-0 out of 5 stars Still my Favorite!
Yes out of all of his books and others this book is still one of my favorite books of all time, I can't count how many times I have read this book over and over. I think the fact that it was one of the first books I fell in love with that is why it will always remain near and dear to me. Eric is such a skillful story teller that I fall in love with his novels, he weaves humor throughout the story and makes you fall in love with each character.

2-0 out of 5 stars BORING
There are SO many other reviews that I don't think I can say anything new.It was just very boring.I just don't see the greatness and excellence that others saw in this book.

If you ever want to get to know a true artist, why not embrace a writer like Dickey. The characters in this book are so relatable that it is almost like your inside the book. There is a play on this book as well same tittle and I strongly suggest you read this book. You can't say your a true book reader without obtaining this novel.

I read this book in 2006 but recently read it again...and I just simply love it. EJD really goes down deep in the soul with Debra, that made me cry!!! I love this book sooo much, it was well developed and the characters realllyyy had some depth to them...this is one of my favs besides 'liars game' and 'the other woman'!!!

I couldn't get past the incomplete sentences and really bad metaphors."Was starting to feel claustrophobic like an American soldier during Vietnam, held captive in a small cage, being tortured by the enemy in Vietcong."Wow, really that bad? Gideon's situation?He was seated next to a young woman that talked too much.Where's Vietcong?

Gideon is a contracted assassin who is caught up in a bit of a dilemma. When the hunter becomes the hunted things become complicated. In his company are two women who he met on a plane that makes his lonely nights anything but.

With the sexy sophistication of a James Bond movie, Gideon is top notch all the way. Being an assassin doesn't steel his heart. After nearly escaping with his life on a number of occasions, he allows the Detroit contractor live to see another day. I'm cracking open Waking with Enemies today, I think Gideon's problems with Detroit are only going to get worse. A nonstop actionmust read!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book!
It's been a while since I've read an EJD book.Once I picked this book up, I couldn't put it down.This book does not disappoint.I am looking forward to reading part 2 "Waking with Enemies".Great job Mr. Dickey!

4-0 out of 5 stars GOOD READ AND PLOT
I was a big fan of Eric Jerome Dickey at one point and then I decided to give Mr. Dickey a rest.Once I picked up "Sleeping with Strangers" I thought Mr. Dickey is back with an incredibla novel as usual.

At first, it was a slow start, but as I continued to flipped the pages a little light began to come through, and before I knew it I was completly done with the book.Overall good read can't wait to see what the sequel holds.

4-0 out of 5 stars Sleeping is good for you
This is the story of a contract assassin named Gideon. The story begins with Gideon on a flight to London to see about another contract killing. However, he is very paranoid after a brutul hit in Florida in which he singled handly takes out a rapper and his entourage. Gideon's goal is to make a million dollars so that he can finally have Arizona as his since she said that's what he'll need to get with her.

This story is fast. EJD has become a master a foreshadowing, similes and metaphors. His very tight and detail descriptions of London streets, trains and red light districts creates visual scenes that really puts the reader right there with the character. The Cliff hanger will leave you speechless.

Peace and Blessings EJD!! ... Read more

Product Description
Southern brotha Jordan Greene lands in the Big Apple and meets a mysterious redhead who turns his world upside down. Milk in My Coffee is an entertaining and complex romance that explores the ups and downs of loving on the other side of the color bar.Amazon.com Review
Dickey's third novel takes on the personal politics associatedwith interracial romance, as a chance encounter in a Manhattan taxibrings together Jordan Greene, a young black urban professional, andKimberly Chavers, a white painter. Dickey gets far beyond thestereotypes, infusing all his characters with complex emotional lives,and while Jordan dominates the story, the multiple first-personnarration shows just how deep Dickey's willing to get inside "all" hischaracters' heads. Milk in My Coffee is a story about twopeople coming to terms with the attitudes that shape their identities,where hearts and minds learn painful lessons about getting beyond whatthe eye can see. --Ron Hogan ...

Simply put, this is an amazing book that left me craving for more. I would reccomend this book without hesitation to anyone!

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best in his collection!
If you're a fan of Eric Jerome Dickey then you have got to read this book. It is one of the best books in his collection. I loved it from beginning to end and found it hard to put it down. It has all the fun and wit of his other novels but also takes a serious look at some real issues like inter-racial relationships. I could go on and on about how great this book is but 'ya wont know it till ya read it, so get to it'.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book Inspired me!!!!
Hi, Eric. I loved this book. It's part of the reason I'm an author. You're writing our stories and You know I'm trying to give you a run for your money with my new novel, What You Owe, Love Does Not Pay. You are such an inspiration and I still remember the first time my friend Paulette put me on to your books. We couldn't wait for the next one which was Milk in My Coffee back in 99. And I remenber we stood there for awhile tripping over how fine you looked on the back. But now I'm an author and it has something to do with you and Bebe Moore Campbell. Hit me back. I can't wait to read PLEASURE!

5-0 out of 5 stars My start to loving Dickey!
This was my first book by Jerome Dickey, so I was skeptical with starting a new author, but I'm so happy I checked this guy out. I enjoyed this book so much that I went and picked up more books by him. I want to get every book he's written! This book was a great read. Interesting fictional look at complicated relationships and the complexities of interracial dating and the perception of race. Dickey's eye for detailing all the emotions of the characters makes this one a must-read for romance lovers. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars TRILLION STARS!! MUST READ
This book is absolutely AMAZING!!Based on previous reviews, I have come to the conclusion that Nicole is misunderstood. I felt, her desire to keep both Ayanna and the "nameless" main character goes way beyond her wanting "to have her cake and eat it too". She is struggling with trying to make everybody else happy as well attempting to be true to herself. If she chooses Ayanna, she has to admit the she is a lesbian and loses her entire family. If she chooses the narrator, then she can be can keep family, but forsakes her own happiness to please other. Either way she loses. She is going to let someone down. She is going to lose someone's love, which is one of her biggest fears.
This book did something to me emotionally.I cried for almost two hours after reading it. Then I went back and read it again two more times! This book is a MUST!!! EJD has done it again.

4-0 out of 5 stars I Enjoyed It!
I enjoyed reading this book very much.I am not into books involving relationships that aren't strictly heterosexual but this book I just could not put down.Very good read.I went through it pretty fast.I am not one for summarizing books.So,all I will say is that it is very much worth the read.

1-0 out of 5 stars Too Much Sex
I have read other Eric Jerome Dickey book before, but it was a long time ago. I don't remember there being so much sex. This book is a perfect example of why I hate reading book by current day authors. None of them know how to write a truly timeless story. If you just want something to read to pass your time, go for it. However, I do not believe this book contributes to the art of novel writting.

Also, it breaks my biggest pet peeve: Writers who write about writers. There are thousands of other professions in the world. Why does every writer in the world have to have one of the main characters be a writer. I wish they would go learn something about another profession.

4-0 out of 5 stars 4.5 out of 5
Very well written. Knew the ending had to be this way just didn't know who would end up with whom. This book kept my attention from front to back.

I can always tell how much I like a book based on whether I feel any type of emotion for the characters. The one word that I felt most during reading this book was frustration. That wasn't a bad thing. I just wished Nicole would make up her mind one way or the other.

I also took something spiritual out of it which I would NEVER expect to get based on the content of the book and it's characters. It just hit me after Nicole's conversation with her mother. A personal revelation for myself. "Be hot or cold" I've always known what it means but, now I understood why it has it's meaning after reading Nicole's character. Nicole is the prime example of what that quote typifies. I guess I see now why God feels that way about us being luke warm. Never would have thought I'd get THAT from THIS book but I did.

5-0 out of 5 stars diifrent EJD
i cant put my finger onit, but this book is diffrent to all his others that ive read so far.

nicole really annoyed me, and i spent my time reading this book hoping anya would fall into a hole.

Empathy is the main emotion i felt reading this book, EJD does it for me, im stll trying to catch up with all his old books

5-0 out of 5 stars My new fav ejd book!!!
i have been a long time fan of ejd and this book is just another reason why. the other woman was my all time favorite ejd book, but this one has taken over. the last book that i read from him was Drive me crazy and then i fell off from reading for awhile. i had skipped over CD and started reading the Gideon series and didn't want to read anything else until i had finished those. i read this book in 24hrs. seriously i was up all night reading i couldnt sleep because i was wondering what was going to happen next. there needs to be a sequel, but knowing ejd there won't be. he might mention the characters in later books like he did with the group from cheaters, and friends and lovers. too bad. anyways i was rooting for Billie the entire time, even though she was flawed and confused was still rooting for her to the end. would've liked for the story to have ended differnetly but oh well.

4-0 out of 5 stars As a female motorcycle rider, I have mixed emotions about this book.
I have to admit that Dickey got my attention within the first ten pages. Part of me wanted to slam the cover shut, shouting oh please in my subconscious, thinking how another author is making money out of turning motorcycle riders into nothing more than sex symbols. Here we go, I thought, it was Biker Boys meets The View, and I wasn't sure I wanted to go there.

On one hand, I was disgusted by the stereotype he was endorsing, and when his protagonist, Billie, mentioned having tunnel vision while riding, he affirmed my fear that he was in fact knocking off the movie Biker Boyz, and he nearly lost me.

But at the same time, I was drawn to the allure of Dickey's erotic tone (who wouldn't be?) and his introducing the first female fiction motorbike rider I'd ever met. This would make Chasing Destiny a bookshelf needle-in-a-haystack, per say, and an irresistible read regardless of Dickey's jaded views. I can't deny that some of what he wrote was true, especially when it came to describing the Los Angeles motorcycle club scene and their affinity for eye-capturing apparel and public displays of attention-getting stunts.

As I read further into the story, I couldn't help but wonder if it was just a typical trashy romance novel, fraught with daytime TV drama and graphic sex scenes. It did have one pretty steamy libido activating roll in the hay mid-way through the novel, which felt like bad timing as it took place after a vaguely detailed gang rape a few chapters before. For the most part, the story was down to earth and hit eerily close to home.

Billie, the protagonist, is a gypsy with a Ducati motorcycle. She's in her mid-30's and works odd jobs, including teaching people to ride. Keith, her lover, is a soon-to-be-divorcee when he meets Billie and they fall in love instantly. It's this premature and illegitimate relationship that sets off a myriad of commotion spawned by jealousy and hate, which results in Billie being chased off the highway on her bike by SUV's, back stabbed by her lover, beat down by an old Jamaican man, and surviving the attempted murder of her unborn child by her lover's daughter, Destiny. But the excitement doesn't end with Billie.

The book has two parallel plots; one surrounding Billie and her relationship with Keith, and the other surrounding Destiny, Keith's daughter. While Billie is battling it out with Keith, Keith's wife Carmen, and Carmen's parents, Destiny is sneaking out of the house and doing drugs. One night, Destiny meets up with some thugs and is slipped a date rape drug. She wakes up and realizes she's been gang raped, and everything was caught on videotape. The thugs responsible distribute the tape, which provokes Destiny to embark on a mutilation binge of all those responsible. All this is going on without Keith, Carmen or Billie being the wiser, because they're caught up in their own love triangle. Dickey was very crafty in how he made this whirlpool of chaos affect every character in the story. The myriad of twists and turns seemed convenient at times, but clever, none the less.

Dickey's characters are each multi-faceted, and they all have a shadow that represents the evil any of us are capable of. What I found most interesting about the book was how the characters' transgressions affected everyone around them, setting forth unfortunate events that spread like ripples in a pond.

So even though I disagree with some of Dickey's raunchy and ill-thought-out descriptions of Billie, Viviane, Marcel and others in his warped idea of the motorbike world, I can't help but feel dangerously close to his story, to the characters and to the inevitable outcome of this provocative and suspenseful saga.

If you love over-the-top sex drama, stunts, crashes, mutilation and Jerry Springer-esque love quarrels, I'd say it's definitely worth a read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book Ever Written By Dickey!!!
This book was great! I am a huge fan of Eric Jerome Dickey and his books never cease to amaze me! i love the way he writes and the way he develops his characters. Chasing Destiny is a book that will capture your heart as you read about billie's troubles and Destiny's as well! although it left a lot of unanswered questions at the end i feel that it was a great book non the less! 5 out of 5!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars What would you do in the name of love?

What would you do for love?

Would you always drop what you were doing to come to your girlfriend's defense?
- - Jacob did.

Would you get pregnant out of fear of losing a man or get pregnant because of jealously towards your already married boyfriend's wife and child?
- - Billie did.

Would you plead and beg your husband to stay with you, even though he had a girlfriend whom he proclaimed he loved deeply?
- - Carmen did.

Would you destroy evidence of a crime scene to protect your grand-daughter?
- - William did.

Would you run down your daughter's husband's girlfriend?

Would you kill your mother's husband's pregnant girlfriend's baby?

Destiny - - a predetermined course of events often held to be an irresistible power.

What is your destiny?
...something you couldn't control - something you couldn't change

Yes. "Chasing Destiny" is full of drama, suspense, passion and tragedy.

Overall, Sistas Speak enjoyed "Chasing Destiny" for its entertainment value and drama-filled page turning fast pace. Although our members could not relate to the characters in the book, some of us had empathy for Carmen and Destiny.

The characters' destiny takes place over the course of a weekend. There is violence, passion, sorrow, family conflict and desperation. Billie is chased through the streets of Los Angeles because her existence threatens the marriage covenant between Carmen and Kieth. Keith is desperately in love with Billie but treats her as number 2. Carmen's choices are all the result of her desperation and vicious nature. Destiny's tragic night and maternal genes ultimately lead her and her victims to a tragic destiny. Viviane, who is "acting like a lady and thinking like a man", is ultimately the only character who makes rational decisions and whose destiny does not become tragic. (Maybe..just maybe..Steve Harvey is on to something :-)

If you're looking for a page turning drama-filled fast paced read, this is a good selection.

5-0 out of 5 stars My review
This book was absolutely great. I have always been a fan of Marvel Comics X-men and a advid reader of Eric Jerome Dickey. OMG!!!! I loved this book and hope to see more. Amazing!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars OMG! This is the Best!
I love superheros and Eric Jerome Dickey books so to have the two put together is amazing.

I hadn't read a comic book since I was in the 10th grade, but reading this one made one of Dickey's books come alive! This should be turned into a movie. I look forward to reading another comic book from him.

I have the original series in the 6 different comic books, but having them in one book is great. If you love X-men, romance and a deep story, this is the book for you!

4-0 out of 5 stars Comic book black love
Great seeing black love in comic book form. The plot could have been a little deeper, but I'm not complaining much. If they added twenty more pages, maybe they could have fleshed out some of the flat characters (ex. all the white guys). Nevertheless, the art was stunning. I couldn't put it down.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Gift-
I acutally brought this comic book for a friend of mine who is in love with Eric Jerome Dickey!!!. He loved it!! So it's a good buy-

3-0 out of 5 stars "I will always remember that you made me a woman, warrior."
Tthis collected miniseries, which retroactively creates a teenage romance for the two heroes, feels forced. Sure, Marvel had to build a foundation for the highly publicized wedding of these two characters, but -- just like the ongoing Democratic primaries -- it seems like an awkward attempt to play the race card and lure black voters -- I mean, readers -- to its side.

Marvel gives its intentions away on the back cover, touting this as the "untold love story between Marvel's two pre-eminent black superheroes." The fact that they're both black seems to be sufficient motivation for them to fall in love, right?

The choice of romance novelist Eric Jerome Dickey to write the script is a fair indication where this story is going. Sure, there's action, but it's contrived and kind of dumb. The villains are pure cardboard, with flimsy motivations both for their unrelenting pursuit of Ororo and for their casual approach to murder among friends and foes alike. These bad guys are ridiculous.

On the plus side, artwork by David Yardin (with an assist by Lan Medina) is excellent. Otherwise, this book is mostly for people who were swept away by the romance of Ororo and T'Challa's sudden nuptials and want a romantic backstory to support it.
