After opening a wildly successful "full-service spa" in Reno that caters to professional women (which turned the world's oldest profession on its head), Lydia Beaucoup and her friends Acey Allen and LaShaWanda P. Marshall decide to grow their business—with a new spa on a boat moored off the shore at Martha's Vineyard. In this unique haven for pampering, in addition to massage and reflexology, clients can purchase fabulous, multi-orgasmic safe sex from men specifically trained to please women. But selling sex is never easy—and insatiable clients, mob extortion, and a repressive federal government are just a few of the problems threatening to take down A Sister's Spa.

Smart, sizzling, and wickedly funny, Let's Get It On is an outrageous tale of pushing traditional envelopes in pursuit of empowerment—and a witty, forthright look at what women really want.

Praise For Let's Get It on

“Jill Nelson tells it like it is. . . . And while the novel lives up to its name, at its core this is the story of friends having one another’s backs.”

“Let’s Get It On is imbued with a complex narrative that involves the mob and politics. . . . In terms of life about the yacht, let’s just say Nelson spins a super sexy yarn just in time for summer.”
-AOL Black Voices

“A hot summer read from the sizzling social commentator and author of Volunteer Slavery and Sexual Healing.”

“The sisters still manage to sizzle—and elicit smiles with their insatiable appetites for love, social justice and the sex trade.”
-Publishers Weekly

“With its sex-positive message and unapologetic emphasis on female enjoyment, Nelson’s latest makes for a zingy beach read.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“As a social commentator, [Nelson’s] pretty fearless. She also knows how to construct a compelling narrative. Happily, she scraps neither of these talents as a novelist.”
-New York Times Book Review

“Sexual Healing is a wild, sexy ride...a fearless look at what women want, and a fresh take on how they can get it ...You’ll emerge refreshed and invigorated, in body, mind, and soul.”
---E. Lynn Harris, A Love of My Own and Any Way the Wind Blows

“Sister Jill isn’t just a foot soldier in what passes for war between the sexes. She’s our commander-in-chief and follow we must.”
