KIRKUS REVIEW

Sex and more sex among the buppies of Chicago.

Black businessman Jayson Abrahms is madly in love with fiancée Faith, a social worker, but he can’t stand her best friend Karen, who has no manners at all, even offered him the chewed-up remnants of the last breadstick on the table when he complained about the way she helped herself to it. Guess he’ll have to accept Faith’s friends whether he likes them or not—damn, he’d do anything for that woman. His friend Asha, a beautiful half-Japanese, half–Native American, privately thinks Jayson lets Faith walk all over him but she keeps quiet. Asha, a masseuse, has troubles of her own. She’s attracted to the women she rubs down at the spa, but she doesn’t believe she could possibly be gay. After all, she’s engaged to Gill, a handsome brown brotha and successful investment banker from North Carolina who loves to spoil her with trinkets, attention, and pounding sex in the shower. Yet Asha can’t stop fantasizing about the luscious breasts, perky nipples, and rounded buttocks. Meanwhile, her latest love, Angie, can’t come out of the closet because of her young son. She doesn’t want him mashing naked Barbie dolls together at school and announcing that he has two mommies. So Asha pines for Angie, who enjoys her sensual ministrations—until huge, mean Leslie (“Big Les”) tries to come between them, hoping the beautiful masseuse will perform oral sex on her. Spurned, Les plots revenge—as we segue to Faith, having an affair with studly Gary, who’s married. Clueless Jayson can’t believe the videotape, thoughtfully provided by Karen, of Faith enthusiastically fellating Gary. Does Karen want to supplant Faith in his affections? Is she just a bitch? Well, no more than Les, who subjects Asha to a lesbian gang rape with a monster dildo wielded by a few of her prison pals. And so on.

Lubricious trash, the fourth from the bestselling author of The Harris Family (2001).
