Genevieve is brilliant and beautiful. Her husband has a thriving career. Together, they have a beautiful home in Los Angeles. Together, they're crazy in love. Then one day a family tragedy brings Genevieve back to her Alabama hometown, back to a past she hoped her husband would never discover, and back to secrets shared by her sister Kenya-mysterious, teasing, and dangerously irresistible. Soon, Genevieve's husband will discover the truth about his wife and her family. Something he was never meant to know-and a desire he was never meant to explore.

I have read other books by Mr. Dickey so I was expecting a great read...and I was NOT disappointed. This book is very sensual and provides a great story with great twists. It was truly unpredictable and had a nice spin at the end which gets you thinking. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to be enthralled.

Eric Jerome Dickey is one of my favorite authors. His writing style is very sleek and to the point. When you read his books, he can describe a scenry without it being 10 pages long. I like that he ties his characters from other stories into a new book. It feels like they are real.

This book is sooooo good! I got hooked on it by the first chapter. The climax of the story just blew my mind, totally unexpected! Something you would want to own and read over and over!

"Genevieve" starts OFF with a spicy hook that grabs you, the story just kinda goes, goes, goes until you realize that it's not going where you thought it would take you. Because we're teased to be interested in the husband's affair and the story is more about the wife. The plot and complexity of his characters appear to be mere accessories to the graphic sexual encounters he spends the bulk of his imaginitive writing on. It was at times boring because there was 2 character dialogue going on for quite some time. The dialog/conversations were hard to follow. It was hard to tell who was talking. I would have to sometimes re-read a paragraph. It was very slow to arrive for me and didn't pick up until the very end. EJD has adopted a new style full of poetic writing and scenery that just didn't capture my attention. There were quite few surprises as the plot unfolds regarding the things pleasant and not so pleasant in her life. I had to force myself to finish this one. I'm not going to hold this one against him, we all make mistakes. I'm eagerly waiting for his next book "Chasing Destiny" to be released, I hope it will be filled with the EJD style and passion that I have grown to love. "Genevieve" isn't the best novel that I've read by Dickey but it is entertaining. The commentary at the end of the book was interesting, to see him share part of his experiences while writting this novel.

Unpredictable and exciting! I coudn't put my Nook down. The graphic sex scenes were a little much. It made the narrator sound like a horndog, but it was understandable for the characters and the plot. I loved it! I will definitely have to check out the author's other books.
