#BookReview: Basketball Jones - E. Lynn Harris

I haven't read an E. Lynn Harris book in a minute. I only picked this book up because I was running short on something to read. While some of his other books have had more sex scenes than I could ever need, this book seemed to downplay them. This is the story of two men that meet in college and become partners. While one goes on to play for the NBA and marries a woman to divert attention from his close male friendship, the other becomes his kept man. The ballplayer is blackmailed by someone threatening to expose him, it turns out to be his wife and a queen, blah blah blah. It was something to read on a lazy afternoon, but I wouldn't run out to pick this up unless you have absolutely nothing else to do.

  1. So sad that this was his last book. It was terrible. Shoddy in all senses - the plot, characters, etc. It was just BAD.
