Black Expressions favorite E. Lynn Harris returns with a big, bold, irresistible novel about football, family, and secrets that will leave you breathless!
Single mother Carmyn Bledsoe has worked her whole life to have the perfect relationship with her son, Brady, devoting herself to him and his dream of becoming a professional football player. For the most part, Brady, now a lead contender for the Heisman Trophy and a spot in the NFL, has been a doting and dutiful son, shining in her good graces. He even joined the church’s “Celibacy Circle” at her request. But now that he’s a college senior, it’s getting more and more difficult for Carmyn to protect her son from looming dangers—including unscrupulous sports agents. Though her biggest fear is cheerleader Barrett, who seems determined to seduce Brady out of his possible future fortune. And Carmyn can’t help but feel the cunning beauty isn’t working alone. Though the thing she’d like most to protect Brady from is the secret she’s kept from him his whole life... As things heat up and Carmyn and Brady’s idyllic relationship starts to crumble, mother and son begin to wonder about the other—are you just too good to be true?

E. Lynn Harris last book wasn't that great. I hope this one is better.
I think I'm going to wait to hear feed-back before I buy this one.
I enjoyed the old books much better. He needs to stick to what made him so popular.
