Come Again by Erica Rivera is now available from Thought Catalog Books.
The novel follows Eve Roberg, a 29-year-old writer ready to end her dry spell. In the 13th month of a sex detox, Eve accepts a date—and ends up in bed—with one of her readers, an alluring Norwegian attorney named Erik Lunden. Disguised under a pseudonym, Lunden becomes Eve’s favorite fodder for her confessional blog. Hits soar as the relationship unfolds online in real time—but can love survive, much less thrive, under the scrutiny of fans and foes alike?
Come Again is a smart, sexy, edgy story about the perils of dating in the digital age, set in the scandalous city of Minneapolis.
Come Again is Rivera’s third book. Penguin published her memoir Insatiable: a young mother’s struggle with anorexia in hardcover on its Berkley imprint in 2009. Rivera’s second memoir, Man Eater: seductive stories and mouthwatering meals, followed in 2011 as an XOXO e-book.
