Sexual Healing

A Novel

From bestselling author Jill Nelson comes a sexy and uproarious novel about Lydia and Acey, two best friends whose career successes are matched only by their romantic and sexual frustrations -- until one night, over a bottle of wine, they concoct a plan: why not develop a business that discreetly supplies handsome black men who are willing and able to serve the sexual needs of black women? Thus is born A Sister's Spa -- a "full-service" spa -- but even as their delighted customer base grows, they face a firestorm of attacks from hostile media, grandstanding church leaders, and other outraged parties.
Sexual Healing is a page-turning comedy, a blistering satire on gender and race relations, and a sexually frank exploration of what women really want.
