Book Description

June 1 2008
When life imitates art... Eva Cavell is a woman with an embarrassing secret. She is sexually frustrated and is convinced that her size and race intimidates men. In an attempt to relieve her sexual tension, every Thursday Eva goes to a local movie theater and allows desperate strangers to fondle her in the dark. She allows no eye contact, no phone numbers-and definitely no names. During one of her escapades, renowned artist, Jared Delaney, a smooth Southern gentleman with irresistible violet eyes, has Eva breaking her own rules. He has been watching Eva on her weekly visits and sees through her icy defence and straight through to the hot passion burning underneath. ...expect to be framed Messing about in dark theaters isn't a good pastime for Eva. She is a tenure-track instructor at a private Denver college that is currently embroiled in a sex scandal and she is the youngest child of a prominent black family. To add to her turmoil, Neil Hollister, Eva's classroom aide and former student, is a handsome, barely-legal frat brat whose interest in her is carnal rather than academic-and she's tempted. Despite desperate attempts to maintain control, Eva's world is spiraling into chaos. As emotional pressures build inside her, an explosion is imminent. Will she ever be able to live her life how she wants and without shame? The answer may lie with a woman who is bold and unashamed in her sexuality. Can Eva be more like her? What would happen if she even tried?

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Wait to Read More from Zetta Brown! July 26 2008
Format:Paperback
I absolutely loved this book! Didn't want to put it down. It's unique, it has hot sex (with a purpose), and the characters are like some I've never seen in books before. The first chapter alone will get you in the mood...in more ways than one. Messalina: Devourer of Men has much HEAT and much HEART. It's worth the buy! I'm looking forward to seeing what Zetta Brown puts out next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Says Big Girls Don't Have Fun? Dec 2 2008
By D. Frazier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Messalina: Devourer of Men by Zetta Brown is a page-turner. From the onset, Dr. Evadne Cavall pulls you in with her sexual conquests at The DeLuxe Theater where she enjoys being fondled by anonymous men. But it is her by-day persona that really makes her an intriguing character. As an assistant professor striving to be tenured at Denver's Bellingham College, her demure personality does more than raise questions; especially since it is all a façade. Sexual frustration is what leads Eva to seek sexual pleasure in the movie theater. But what happens when she meets a passionate artist who exposes her perversion and leads her to a road of sexual liberation without her permission? And Eva is not alone when it comes to scandal. Bellingham College is up-in-arms when it comes to student-professor relationships. Guess who finds herself smack in the middle of the controversy?

Brown creates a tale of lust and love that is fresh and real. The sex scenes were finger-licking good and the plot twists were ingenious. This is a novel where everything definitely had its place. Brown also has the gift of wit that will not go unrecognized and I am sure she will have a large following (me included). There were a few editing mishaps, but the story was great and made them forgivable. Messalina is an awesome story of growth and I recommend it to readers who are tired of pulsating rods and the usual romance fluff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Every Word! March 28 2009
By Jolie du Pre - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I downloaded Messalina: Devourer of Men, with the assumption that I would get my money's worth. I wasn't wrong. Zetta Brown is an excellent writer, and I can only hope that she is busy working on her next novel.

There has been a lot already said about Messalina. I'd only like to add that it was refreshing to read a book with a full-figured black woman as the main, sexy character. How often do you see that? Not often enough. That's only part of what sets this book apart as not being your typical erotica fare.

This is a woman who likes to enter Adult theaters and have sex with anonymous men. That premise, alone, sets this book apart as well. In short - it's original.

You'll enjoy reading what happens to our protagonist as the tale unfolds.

4.0 out of 5 stars One word to describe...WOW!! Jan. 30 2011
By K. Gilliam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have one word for this book...WOW! I probably will end up buying the actual book (I downloaded) because it was that good and when I love a book, I need to hold it. LOL! Ms Brown has created a wonderful piece. Personally, I am not a fan of first person, (I think I've said it before) because they usually end up so one-sided and I am dying to know what the other characters feel. However, Ms. Brown created a wonderful character in Eva that I became lost in the story that was truly hers. Plus, when it counted, I knew what the other characters were feeling by living it though Eva. I would have given this book 5 stars but I wanted to know what exactly drove her to her movie fetish. I understand where the movie and finger thing came from by reading Cherries Jubilee, but the courage, the boldness it took to do it, how did that happen? One thing I am finding about interracial romance is they are losing the romance of it all. Lust/sex does not equal romance, but in this book, there was a reason for everything. Eva's behavior, her reaction to Jared, his reaction to her, but most importantly (as this is a romance novels) their love scene had a point. Their love scenes (which here hot!! Btw) were not placed `just because' as in other books, but Eva and Jared's loved scenes had a purpose to the story, they helped the story move along. This is a testament to the author herself. KUDOS!! A wonderful read full of emotions, laughter and most of all love!

5.0 out of 5 stars Messalina: Devour This Book! July 13 2009
By Rhonda B. Scales - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Evadne is a 35 year old professor at a small college who once a week goes to a small movie theater and does something with strangers that all of our mamas warned us about! Until one day she meets her match in Jared.

These two are together sexually combustuable,intellectually challenging and emotionally equal,yet afraid of that fact. Reading about them as they go through building a new relationship is very interesting. Both bringing issues and people from previous and not to previous, relationships into the foray.

I especially loved the town they lived in,a funky,artsy,college town located in Colorado. I enjoyed the other characters in the story. They were fleshed out enough that I would like to see them again. Especially Evadne's TA, that young man's comeuppence needs it's own story!

There is a prequal to this story. Go to Ms Brown's website to find it. Yet, you don't have to read it to enjoy this story. The title and cover had me going "hmmmmm" until I read and finished the book. Now I know why the title and cover are so unique. Read this book, and you will also.

Kudos to Zetta Brown for a great read!
