Erotic Delusions by J. Richards
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Title: Erotic Delusions
Author: J Richards
I was floored and then touched. I've read J Richards' novels in the past, but nothing has come close to touching me quite the way this novel has. The idea behind the book is quite straight forward - a woman, a wife and mother of two, suddenly begins to have delusions so real that she swears are reality. They are rough, erotic and some cruel, but the woman, Tessa, hides it for as long as possible from her family in fear of the consequences from the truth coming out, but to her surprise, her husband Jared refuses to leave her side or to give up on her.
So why did Erotic Delusions touch me so deeply? J Richards stars each of her chapters with a new quote from different authors about mental health and that's when you come to realize that living with any type of mental illness isn't as clean cut as many would like to make it seem. It's difficult, confusing, emotional and most of all, at times, isolating. Not knowing your own reality vs delusions your own mind traps you in is the hardest thing you can go through, but knowing your loved ones are behind you does help to a certain degree. Putting into words the struggle and the unknown of this illness is possibly the hardest thing anyone can do, but to do so in such a way that steals the words right out of my own mouth, takes extraordinary talent. For that and so much more, J Richards' Erotic Delusions is on novel that needs to be read.
