Praise for Eric Jerome Dickey and his novels:

"Dickey's fans flock to his readings.... He's perfected an addictive fictional formula."--The New York Times

"Dickey has the knack for creating characters who elicit both rage and sympathy."--Entertainment Weekly

"[A] heartfelt erotic drama.... the setting is artfully crafted, the characters' struggles are real and moving, and the sex those characters have is flaming hot."--Publishers Weekly

"From wanton to wicked, the love-hate relationship between Dickey's characters burns with rapid-fire dialogue and plenty of steam."--Kirkus on Before We Were Wicked

"The love story Dickey tells...is potent. Readers will want to read Bad Men and Wicked Women again after being immersed in this edgy, emotional adventure."--Booklist on Before We Were Wicked

"A passion-filled prequel that puts a new spin on the familiar conflicts that have made him a household name."--Essence on Before We Were Wicked

"Nobody currently publishing today writes sex better than Eric Jerome Dickey."--Electric Review on Before We Were Wicked

"Before We Were Wicked is a masters class in relationship drama...a literary feast!"--Smexy Books

"Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction comes to mind as Swift and Ellis cruise through Los Angeles's wealthy neighborhoods debating issues of racism, inner-city poverty, and the lingering effects of slavery.... Suspense builds with an action-packed finale, and Dickey's many fans will eagerly consume this."--Library Journal on Bad Men and Wicked Women

"Dickey sets in motion a fascinating cast of characters and creates compelling arcs for their stories.... Readers will be cheering for the kindhearted Ken and his family in this dark yet ultimately hopeful novel."--Booklist on Bad Men and Wicked Women

"Eric Jerome Dickey is the best thing going in fiction now in terms of writing stories that blend action with sensuality.... Dickey's penchant for creating fiction that resonates with the forbidden overtakes us--these elements of danger and lust dominating each and every passage. At its best moments, Bad Men and Wicked Women recalls bits and pieces of the famed HBO series The Sopranos as we come to drench ourselves in the types of secrets many families harbor but seldom share."--Electric Review

"Dickey steadily generates a taut, deadly atmosphere throughout the book, and readers will not be able to predict who will be the last man standing."--Booklist on Finding Gideon

"An epic story about an epic quartet [of friends]."--Essence on The Blackbirds

"In this sensual tale, words stoke the body and the imagination. With prose that is both witty and current, Dickey chronicles the pothole-filled journey four modern black women take to find love."--Kirkus on The Blackbirds

"[An] empowering story of four women friends . . . [featuring] relatable voices and feelings to difficult issues."--Booklist on The Blackbirds
