From Publishers Weekly
Self-publishing street lit phenomenon Aaron (To Live and Die in Harlem) serves up a smoldering batch of raw erotica and criminality. Mason and Adena Fickle are a black suburban couple trying to put distance between themselves and their hardscrabble roots; Mason is an accountant with disciplined work habits and a bullheaded attitude about making a good living for himself and his wife, Adena, and to keep things “creative” at home, the two engage in increasingly kinky sex. But when Loween, the third member of their threesome, chokes to death on Mason’s copious ejaculate, the Fickles find their aspirations in jeopardy after the shady, wheelchair-bound Sid, claiming to be Loween’s cuckolded boyfriend, appears on their doorstep and reveals Loween wasn’t who the Fickles thought she was. As much a story about the sexual taboos of middle-class America as a cautionary tale about the dangers of “going white,” a taboo of upwardly mobile African Americans, Aaron’s book mines Mason’s and Adena’s internal lives fairly well, though the plot has its share of ridiculous turns, and characters are more notable for their extreme natures than for their depth. It won’t make many Mother’s Day gift lists, but Aaron’s latest is a full-throttle tour of a sordid world. (Sept.)

Verdict: For an incisive look at a man’s inner thoughts and feelings as he juggles multiple sexual encounters, look no further than Relentless Aaron’s (Extra Marital Affairs) new novel.
In capturing the emotions of pure sexual release and introspective debates on being true to women, this author is unparalleled.
As a bonus, the sexual scenes are a matchless combination of sensuality and naughtiness.
Background: Shawn Hopkins, a 19 year old intent on achieving success, has fallen hard for Venus, who flaunts a Caribbean woman’s sensual attitude. Although vexed, Shawn reluctantly agrees to share space with Allison, a girlfriend of Venus who needs time away from her man. But temptation soon arises, and Shawn enters not one, two, or three, but five sexual relationships, as well as enjoying a threesome with Venus and Allison and mixing work with pleasure by sleeping with his boss, a wealthy client, and a wealthy client’s administrative assistant. As he becomes financially successful, Shawn ponders to which woman he wants to commit forever but fails to notice the warning signs of romantic disaster. The morality lesson here: being played can dampen the pleasures of the bedroom.
