Fresh Fiction Review

It's Been a Pleasure, Noni Blake

Women's Fiction | Humor | LGBTQ Romance

Noni Blake is ready for a change. After making a list of people she should have been with and those she had been with, she acts upon this. This leads to yet another list and a decision. She will do only what gives her pleasure. What follows is a leave of absence, of sorts, from her real life and to a trip that changes her life.

There is so much that makes IT'S BEEN A PLEASURE, NONI BLAKE worth reading. Author Claire Christian has created a large cast of memorable characters. Some are quirky and odd, to say the least. The dialogue is witty and profound. Strongly present in the narrative are themes of binding friendship and love. Noni is a wonderful protagonist and the author skillfully guides readers through her experiences and her personal growth. Her observations and self-awareness are made perfectly clear.  She is so likable that readers want the best for her. It was a pleasure to read IT'S BEEN A PLEASURE, NONI BLAKE by Claire Christian. Highly recommended.

SUMMARY

What if you made yourself your number one priority?

Of all the women and men Noni Blake has pleased in her life, there’s one she’s often overlooked—herself. After the end of a decade-long relationship, Noni decides it’s time for that to change. She’s finally going to prioritize her wants and desires and only do things (and people) that feel good in the moment.

As she embarks on a pleasure-seeking quest that takes her halfway around the world, she discovers that maybe she can have everything, and everyone, she’s ever wanted.

Effortlessly hilarious and relatable, Claire Christian spins a fresh, feel-good tale about starting over as a thirtysomething woman who’s been living life for everyone else. A story of self-discovery for the ages, Noni’s journey serves as a sparkling reminder that life is what we make of it—so why not enjoy it?
