Title: Fornication: Volume One
Author: Julia Press Simmons
Headline: A Decent Read
Fornication: Volume One by Julia Press Simmons is the story of a madam named Portia who comes from a family of prostitutes. Honey Dip is one of the women that works for Portia and the story revolves around her desire to turn her life around. The storyline is fresh and original as there are not too many fiction books out that are told from the prostitute’s point of view and Simmons does explore the question if Portia and Honey’s relationship is one based on true friendship or one based solely on money.
I gave Fornication three stars because it states it is Volume One but it seemed as if there were previous books written by Ms. Simmons that should have been read to fully understand this one. Fornication lacked character development and there were some spelling errors but overall it was an entertaining read. This was the first book that I have read by Julia Press Simmons but I will check out her other work sometime in the future.
