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.

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.

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.

Releasing The Goddess Within April 27 2009
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Eva Cavell is a woman with two faces. In her normal day-to-day life, she is a tenured English professor at a private college who enjoys spending time with her friends and going to the movies. Interestingly, it is while she attends the movies that her other side comes to life. Behind the curtain of darkness she becomes a different woman who allows men to enjoy her with no attachments but she does have rules. There is no eye contact, no names are given, and no phone numbers are exchanged. One Thursday Eva meets a violet-eyed man, Jared Delaney, who peaks her interest. He has been watching her over the weeks and wants to explore her passion outside of the confines of the movie theater. Jared offers Eva the outlet for her sexual frustration she has been looking for and she happily breaks her rules to begin a relationship with him. Even though Jared and Eva share the passion that great relationships are made of, their's is not without drama and both of them have to decide if their passion is enough.

Eva's relationship isn't the only situation bringing drama to her life. There is also the teacher's assistant and former student Neil Hollister, the Chancellor's nephew, who seems to be more interested in Eva as a lover than a professor. And if that wasn't enough, another Professor, who happens to be Eva's mentor, is in trouble for his dealings with female students. What does this mean for Eva's future at the university?

MESSALINA: DEVOURER OF MEN is an enjoyable debut novel by Zetta Brown. Her work is well-written with drama, suspense, and sexy scenes readers will enjoy. The book was paced just right, with a story line that kept me interested from beginning to end. I must admit there were parts of the plot I guessed beforehand but this did not take away from the story as a whole. Brown's debut novel is a well-crafted story that already has me looking forward to her next release.

Messalina- Not a Simple Repast! Dec 29 2008
By S. L. Koehler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
First let me say that I am not habitually a reader of "erotica" or even romance novels. Until reading Zetta Brown's writing, I believed they were insipid, and usually insulting to women. Now I know that most Erotica/Romance novels pale in comparison to Messalina, in every way- plot, in character development, in humour and complexity- USUALLY they fall flat and dont' even serve to "entertain" me for a night. Or to put it in a more positive light, I require a good mix of reality and believable situations in my fiction, even fantasies, and Messalina did not disappoint. The main character is highly intelligent, has a great sense of humour, is accomplished in her field, and of course, in our "real" world, she is judged by none of those things, but mainly for her size and color. Don't get me wrong, there is plenty of interesting, hot sex to keep the reader engaged- but it's all staged in a relate-able way, within the context of a developing relationship that has it's ups and downs like any other. Any good writer knows that the emotional arc of the main character is the most important thing to the reader, and Brown, as a good writer, takes care of her characters and her readers. "Eva" the main character struggles to gain confidence and to stop letting other people define her, and in the end, she wins that battle. She deals with ex-boyfriends, parents, siblings and old friends in the process- something we all have to do. She's also created one of most attractive male counterparts in recorded history- "Jared", "Eva"'s boyfriend is sensitive and artistic, yet masculine and extremely sexy.
The novel is almost an ensemble piece, with a full cast of characters that have their own quirks and spice, and hilarious moments, to the mix. Maybe I'm a sucker for any novel set in my hometown of Denver, but the author was spot-on with her descriptions of the setting, the nightlife and the culture. I was surprised at how much I liked this book and am grateful to the girlfriend who gave it to me to read. A total delight!
