Book Description

July 1 2008

New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey’s must-read follow-up to Sleeping with Strangers.

Gideon, the hit man introduced in Sleeping with Strangers, returns in this “high-octane”(Publishers Weekly) thriller to discover that a hit has been taken out on him. Is it the man he left alive in Tampa, the cold beauty who taught him how to kill, the scorned woman he still desires, or an unknown enemy? As the hunter becomes the hunted, Gideon will need his friends—and his enemies—to get out of this crisis alive.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Picking up where Sleeping with Strangers left off, Dickey's latest novel finds hit man Gideon in London, where another assassin, a mysterious man with a broken nose, is hot on his trail. Gideon's most recent target was a rapper, Big Bad Wolf. The rival rapper who hired Gideon for the hit, Sledge, was recently assassinated, and Gideon assumes he is the latest target. The nonstop narrative follows Gideon as he evades the assassin, searches for the truth about his hooker mother, continues his involvement with tough girl Arizona (who wants Gideon to kill her older sister), tries to figure out who ordered the hit on him and finds time for some explicitly chronicled fantasy sex. Though the revelations about who's behind what are a stretch and the ending is a little too much on the rosy side, there's a lot of fun to be had in watching Gideon work his brutal trade, and the high-octane narrative will have readers burning through page after page.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gideon, O Thou Gideon Sept. 27 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I received this book in the mail on Monday, and started reading it on Tuesday, finished it on Wednesday. After reading "Sleeping With Strangers," I could hardly await for his sequel "Waking With Enemies." With ten New York Times bestselling novels to his credit I must say that this book was strictly worth the wait!

If you don't know at the end of "Sleeping with Strangers," Gideon wakes to a mysterious, deadly enemy in a world where there's no one he can trust. As an assassin he realizes that he's been targeted for death by a broken-nosed hit man, probably related to a job Gideon had done in Tampa, Fl. Gideon has befriended a woman, Lola Mack, he met on the plane whose been dumped by her man. Another lady by the name of Mrs. Jones also returns to Gideon whom he had also met on the plane. The three enjoy each other in bed while Gideon tries to forget about the danger beyond his hotel room door. Meanwhile, the love-of-his life, Arizona, helps Gideon track down the stalker (more like his shadow) as the hunter becomes the hunted. Meanwhile Gideon is also determined to come to terms with his prostitute mother who also operates in London. From there, Gideon and the broken-nosed man circle one another until one gets the upper hand. Then, the whirl-a-around begins. The pressure comes because Gideon is never certain who is on his side. At the same time, Gideon will need to locate his friends and find out who his real enemies are if he wants to get out of the game alive. In between then pinching pleasure helps to make the risk bearable for him.

The only downfall to this book is the story itself. The plot is really thin but the sex scene seems to carry it on its shoulder to the point you will reach for a cancer stick... and I don't even smoke.

3.0 out of 5 stars Be Sure to Read Sleeping with Strangers First Aug. 22 2007
By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Waking with Strangers is the sequel to Sleeping with Strangers, which leaves you with a series of cliff hangers. Without that background, you'll probably find Waking with Strangers a little hard to follow. Having read both books, I felt like they were really two parts of one book rather than being a book with a sequel. Why? Here's one reason: Waking with Strangers opens with a very long erotic sequence that doesn't belong at the beginning of a standalone book. The sequence only makes sense if it's in the middle of a longer book.

Here's the basic plot: Gideon is in London performing his chores as an assassin where he realizes that he's been targeted for death by a broken-nosed hit man, probably related to a job Gideon did recently. Gideon has befriended a woman, Lola Mack, he met on the plane whose boy friend has dumped her. A second woman, Mrs. Jones, also returns to Gideon, whom he had also met on the plane. The three enjoy each other in bed while Gideon tries to forget about the danger beyond his hotel room door. Meanwhile, the love-of-his life, Arizona, helps Gideon track down the stalker. Gideon is also determined to come to terms with his prostitute mother who also operates in London. From there, Gideon and the broken-nosed man circle one another until one gets the upper hand. Then, the surprises begin. The tension comes because Gideon is never certain who is on his side . . . and who is his enemy. Stealing pleasure helps to make the risk bearable.

Waking with Enemies lacks a lot of the edge that Sleeping with Strangers had in exploring the life of a hit man. There's extreme danger in Waking with Strangers, but not very much of it. With the exception of a few scenes, Waking with Enemies could be about an unmarried suburban executive who meets some exciting women.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gideon Gideon Gideon Aug. 15 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Oh, man. What can I say about this book? It was perfect. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. I was so shocked to find that Mr. Dickey had cleverly hidden a previous character in plain sight. How he managed to keep this fact from us throughout an entire book, has me baffled. I had to go back and reread the Prequel, and still couldn't figure it out. Over hte years, his writing style has evolved into something so much more than romance or contemporary fiction, whatever it was. For so many years, I've shied away from the action thriller books, but that's exactly what this was, with a tiny bit of romance thrown in.

There were so many things going on at once, his style of switching back and forth keeping me entertained, and confused at the same time. I loved how ge let suspeense convince you of what had happended then turned right around and convinced you of omething totally different. I can't wait for the next one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pure Smut... July 26 2009
By A. Gumbs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
E J Dickey was once my favorite author. My favorite book was "Cheaters". His gift was unbelievable. I stayed up until 5 am reading because I could not put down his books. I don't know what has happened lately but I couldn't finish "Waking with Enemies". The book is smeared with unnecessary trashy sex scenes that last way too long. I got tired of reading it and was disgusted after a few chapters. Even though I would like to know how the story ends, I just can't keep reading. Some how it feels like he has began competing with Zane. If you like trashy, erotic novels then you will like this book. If you are interested in a good storyline without raunchy sex scenes, leave this one on the shelf. I was really disappointed and I don't think I will be buying anymore of his books. I wish he would go back to writing books like "Sister, sister", "cheaters", and "friend and lovers".

4.0 out of 5 stars What About Your Friends? Aug. 7 2007
By Urban Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Gideon is back with the mysterious man with the broken nose hot on his heels. Gideon is still reeling from the foot chase he had with this mysterious hit man and is still trying to find out who put the hit out on him. But is Gideon really prepared to handle the truth? To further complicate matters, Arizona pops back into his life and sucks Gideon into her own personal deadly drama that he doesn't have time for. Gideon's mind is put temporarily at ease after an unforgettable heated encounter with two lovely women in his London hotel room. But he still views everyone as a potential enemy, even Arizona. Gideon also finds out more shocking revelations about his childhood from his mother. Time is winding up and Gideon had better find out who his real friends and enemies are before it's too late.

Waking With Enemies is the perfect sequel by Eric Jerome Dickey. Dickey smoothly picked up right at the exact scene where Sleeping With Strangers left off, something that sequels rarely do. Readers are once again treated to the action-packed storyline that was featured in the first novel. This book answers a lot of questions that were left unanswered in the first book. There are plenty of unique twists and turns in this story that you must pay close attention to. In this fast paced drama, nothing is what it appears to be. Readers will be shocked when it is revealed who is behind the hit on Gideon. Dickey also included a healthy portion of intensely erotic sex scenes that provided a delightful addition to this storyline. Waking With Enemies is an engrossing page-turner that will satisfy Eric Jerome Dickey's existing fans and will create new ones.
