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.

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.
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.

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!
