Reviews for Neptune & Surf

Lewis' style is outstanding! 'Neptune & Surf' is a book that delivers what it promises. Marilyn Jaye Lewis offers three intense and arousing novellas of female erotica. Each tale explores a theme relevant to the time and setting in which it takes place. “Neptune & Surf” is a story of prostitution and interracial sex on Coney Island in 1955. This is followed by “The Mercy Cure,” the tale of a young lesbian’s coming of age in a Catholic orphanage. Finally, there is “Gianni’s Girl.” When a gangster’s girlfriend steals money from the hood, she pays a steep price. Will her gangster boyfriend want her after everyone else takes a turn with her? Lewis blends history with fantasy and real-life events in a way that brings new meaning to female erotica. Her work refreshingly outside of the norm, Lewis is an author you do not want to miss. —Danielle Enlge, erotic author


The whole book should have been a movie. If I were a big time producer, looking for a great story to introduce to movie goers; this book would be it. Marilyn Jaye Lewis captures that detailed image in her writings. When you read her stories, they'll leave you in that lingering movie thinking mood that you get when coming out of the theaters. 'Gianni's Girl,' was my favorite. If that story was at the box office, it would win with the right actors and actress. This book of the three explicit novellas was superb! I recommend it.. —Evelyn O.Simon, b&n.com
