I once imagined an exotic life as a circus performer. Especially as a young adult not enjoying my boring small town reality. Through the vivid images and dialogue within this wonderful book, I feel like I am finally able to experience what I wanted. A satisfying story that leaves no doubt that circus people are different, unique and very protective of their world. I learned and yearned for the life that this book shares and am richer for having read it.

A riveting story with a very compelling main character! This novel weaves a masterful tail about growing up, making mistakes, trials and tribulations, and the sights, sounds, and struggles of the circus. The detail and imagery feels as though you are reading personal accounts of an adventure through the eyes of the main character, and you feel the weight of the world our protagonist is living in. Devoured this book in 2 days and I cannot stop thinking about it! Even if you think circus isn’t for you- give this book a try!

Now this is a novel that can literally sweep a reader off his feet and fly him to an alternate world that is easily hidden beneath a circus tent. My bookcases are awash with spies and aliens, murderers and lovers. They all tend to run together and begin sounding the way unsweetened oatmeal tastes. That would be bland. But reading the Greatest of Ease is like eating dessert before dinner. It’s sweet and delightful and so very different from the normal reading fare. Teri Bayus has a unique and colorful writing style that lends itself to describing a world that is all about color and music loud and boisterous. She uses words like a paintbrush and rewards the reader with entry to a world we never knew existed.
She gives her reader the come-on look, the wink and nod and says “Come on big boy, whadaya got to lose?”

Synopsis: Consumed is an erotic culinary adventure.

By Teri Bayus

When Nadailia opens up her new farm-to-table bistro and hires Chef Dylan, she had no idea that she would be seduced not only by his food, but also ultimately lose herself in his hunger.

The wife of a cold billionaire has its challenges. Nadailia has created and succeeded in many restaurants financed by her husband’s money. She has never known real passion until the young chef Dylan comes into her world. Chef’s decency keeps them from realizing the true feelings they freely express to each other through word play and food. When her husband dies, it is time to see if this is real love or just lust.

Consumed is a tale of delectable meals shared, exciting romance, and erotic play. Follow their passion through luxury feasts and the stimulating world of fine dinning and wine.

Hunger never tasted this delicious.

  Consumed – Sex and Food, Food and Sex – a Delectable Pairing!
By The Runaway Writer on October 11, 2015

I downloaded this book last night and I can’t stop reading. Food and sex, sex and food – I can’t decide which is more compelling, but woven together like this results in a delectable, explosive story and reading experience! Wow. Throw in a smart, strong woman lead, who takes just what she wants and the story grabs you and doesn’t let go. I laughed so hard at the “embryonic eater”! I can hardly wait to finish my binge.

Consumed is erotica that turns up the heat and touches all the senses. Food and sex are basic needs, but damn this book lifts them to a higher level. Teri Bayus is on to something with culinary erotica. A strong female lead character who kicks ass in business and in the bedroom. Forget Netflix and Chill, it’s Consumed and Chill in my house.

  A Culinary Sexfest
By Janice Konstantinidis on October 11, 2015

Anyone who doesn’t read this book will go hungry! ‘Consumed’ is a multi-layered delight to the senses. If it can be cooked, or not, it’s in this book. Whatever you’re doing in the bedroom or elsewhere, stop and read Teri Bayus’ romp in erotica. It’s a culinary sexfest that just might lead you to experience the spice of your life. I have never read anything quite like it. A modern day Karma Sutra with attitude, chilli and herbs.
