Sexual Healing by Jill Nelson

Sexual Healing

Jill Nelson

A sex and shopping novel from the viewpoint of black 'sisters' in California. An unusual and funny take on the genre and a fascinating insight into the lives of black women today - expect a lot of very explicit sex.

Extract

'Mom. Lorenzo is suing me for alimony, do you understand? He wants me to pay to get away from him, even though he left me and I supported him while we were married.' My ears are standing up, there's a throaty growl in my voice, and I can feel the beginnings of drool forming in the corners of my mouth, but there's nothing I can do about it. Lorenzo always brings out the dog in me.
