    I loved this book. I bought Pleasure back in 2010 and have yet to finish it because I really couldn't connect with Nia Simone Bijou.....AT ALL. This makes me wanna give Pleasure a second (well....fourth) chance.

    I thought I should write a better review. So this was a short read from Eric Jerome Dickey, I think it can fall under the category of novella. It tells a tale of a character I hoped he hadn't laid to rest Nia Simone Bijou (if you haven't read Pleasure i suggest you do.) It begins when she finds a box from college with old pictures. Instead of memories that you would think she might cherish, she stares at them in anger and resentment, and the rest of the tale is a flash back at her first love, and I thought I should write a better review.

Eric Jerome Dickey is one of my favorite writers because someone he can write from a female perspective and it's so believable. His words are raw and poetic at the same time. This didn't fall short to me in anyway. Even though he fed you bits and pieces of the end, and even though I could see how it was going to end, I still couldn't put the book down. I loved it. Especially because in a way I can relate to it. Seeing that this is release a month before Decadence, another novel featuring Nia Simone, I can only wonder if this novella is going to have some relevance to Decadence. One can only wait and see.

    I fell in love with Nia Simone in 2008 with Pleasure and I've fallen in love all over again. This book is sharp and seductively sexy in every aspect of the word. The passion and fire between Chris and Nia is sexually erotic, heavenly in intense, and sophiscated enough to warn your heart of the trials and troubles of being in love. Nia Simone is a beautiful woman on a whirlwind journey of discovering life and love in a chaotic world. I am Nia and so are my sisters.

    This book is littered with mistakes. Beyond that there is very little story to read here. There is also a lot of repetition in regards to the character's descriptions. This is a pretty forgettable book.

    Recommended by a Friend Trinidad, Jamaica, calypso, seco. Culture, intelligence, Mensa, discussions. Too much bedroom for me but appreciated the culture, from tradition and legend to food and music.

    This book was just okay to me. I have read a couple books from Eric Jerome Dickey and wanted to give this book a try. I didn't care for the sex being the main focus, but when it was talking about the characters' life I enjoyed it.

    Never disappointed I read Decadence before this one and I was driven to read more about Nia. After this book I now understand how it all began for her. Now I would like to know how her story ends up after Decadence.

    Missing the wow! Good book. Easy read but I was waiting on the wow! Or the story. Something to spice it up. What happened to M&M?

    Always a pleasure. Thank you. I highly recommend. Easy read. Four hours tops. Definitely not a happily ever after. More like pain and pleasure.

    Wasn't the best book by Eric Jerome. It repeated too much of the same thing over and over. It was quite an annoying read. Had high hopes for it, but it really let me down.

    I will start this by saying Nia Simone Bijou is MY girl! Eric Jerome Dickey enlightens us on the college years of Nia from his 2008 book, Pleasure. This novella is one that will not disappoint and is a great filler to get us ready for Decadence that will be released in April.

Nia’s college experiences are much like what I had while attending The Ohio State University (and, I’ll assume for others who had the opportunity to attend college), I started as a barely legal adult and on graduation day due to experiences including love, freedom, passion and heartache, I emerged a woman. “During that era I had sex because of love. I was a slave to my heart, to romance. I was beautifully imperfect, but incapable of seeing my own flaws. That was the arrogance of youth, when you believed that you owned time and gravity, those things that betrayed and aged us in the end, when you believed that universes rotated around your existence. I didn’t understand that my body would want sex even when love wasn’t present.” Eric Jerome Dickey is my most favorite male author for many reasons and The Education of Nia Simone Bijou will keep him in my top spot. His style & delivery, his ability to connect words and imagery is far above other authors, and he always weaves tasteful erotica with intellectually stimulating conversation. The Education of Nia Simone Bijou is a quick afternoon read and will make you want to go back and read Pleasure all over again and it will definitely get you excited to purchase Decadence which will be released on April 23rd!!

    All I can say is wow! Mr. Dickey always writes a thought provoking read, and this one is no different. Its not your usual fluff, but actually makes you think and re-read sentences two and three times. At first I really couldn't figure out where this story was going, but about half way through it all makes sense. It is literally the Education of Nia Simone Bijou because we really get to read about her grow in such a short period of time. The dynamic between her and Chris was heavenly erotic, but All I can say is wow! Mr. Dickey always writes a thought provoking read, and this one is no different.

The dynamic between her and Chris was heavenly erotic, but they connected on a intellectual and spiritual level as well. Their little fun bunch with M&M, Rigoberto, and Eugene is what one would picture the college experience to be. I cannot wait until April 2013 to see where Nia's story goes in Decadence, I suspect it will be epic.

    One of Eric Jerome Dickey's heroines is back: Nia Simone Bijou. In this special eBook release, Nia's memories are triggered while going through an old box.

    This book was a quick read that provided insight into how Nia started down the road that led her to being who she is in Pleasure. Although this was a good read, the storyline was predictable.

In fact, books like these are the reason why I started reading science-fiction, those storylines are more outside of the box and don't center around the same tired storylines and plot twists.

    I started reading this book expecting the typical poorly written, predictable romance novel. Instead Eric Jerome actually managed to fill an erotic novel with suspense, great conversation and a marvelous story line. I'm eager now to read his other novels. There absolutely nothing tacky, sleazy or cheap about this read. I did get a bit frustrated with his need to constantly list Trinidadian/Caribbean foods like he had simply googled them and wanted to make his writing more credible.

    I listened to Pleasure the Audio Book during a leave of absence and was floored by the story. I found out that Dickey was preparing to release a sequel and had this as a prequel or set up story to the sequel. I bought the kindle version immediately and read it in one evening. I could not put it down. Very great story telling, set up and it dug deeper into the story of Nia Simone Bijou a character I have really grown to love. It also gave me a deeper understanding of why she created her world. I listened to Pleasure the Audio Book during a leave of absence and was floored by the story.

    Good,not great. I consider myself an avid EJD fan since I have all of his books on bookshelf with the exception of two. I was not altogether impressed by this book and only downloaded it because it tells how Nia became the woman she is in Pleasure. On one hand I felt like it TOO much, and too repetitive. Does a great job describing the college life and putting things in the female perspective.

    Didn't quite get it, but good book either way. Great book,I had previously stopped reading Eric Jerome Dickey since his writing style had changed.You could tell that he had book deadlines to meet and contacts to fulfill but this book felt like his earlier or should I say early work. He left me wanting more, so that makes the book riveting for me.I do wish he had concluded the book differently instead of on a climax. I recommend this book highly!

    I enjoyed the story on a whole, the timeline does seem to jump around a bit, and the story does end abruptly. However, as a writer I wonder if this story was a filler story. Something to fill the gap of time, between novels? Maybe my memory of Eric's writings has changed things. I will have to go back to one of his earlier novels and see if my memory has changed his writings in my mind.

    Disappointed This story was a quick one about a girl losing her boyfriend in the worst way besides death. I really couldn't get into it, but I did like how it explained how she felt. No real resolution, so that was disappointing. It just ended.

    Provocative, passionate, profound!! The three words that describe this book. I loved Nia in Pleasure but got to understand her character better with this novella. Ready to see where life will take her next in Decadence...
