Great read

As usual, E. Lynn Harris brings life to new characters we hope to see much more of. Camryn Bledsoe has created an excellent life for herself and her son, college football star Brady Bledsoe but the secrets she has threaten not only her life but her relationship with her son. With enough storylines to keep the story moving and some we hope to hear more about in future stories, Mr. Harris has you turning pages so quickly that before you know it the book is over and you're left hungering for more. Just enough dialogue, just enough sex, just enough storylines makes for another outstanding E. Lynn Harris novel.

Well Worth The Wait!

Just Too Good To Be True by E. Lynn Harris is well worth the wait. It has been a long time since my favorite author cranked out a well anticipated novel. This book is just that;I loved it so much I ran out and bought it the same day it came out. Now here is the scoop on the new novel. We have a cast of all new characters and when I tell you they are drama-filled, they are just that. From your country bama mother who is the embarrassment around town, to the local football star who is leading a double life. This book is filled with all kinds of characters and the development of them all is breathtaking. Mr. Harris has outdone himself with this one.

Running scared and forced to start a new life, Carmyn is determined to make a better way for herself and her son, Brady. Through grim and grit you will feel this woman's strength as she struggles to overcome obstacle after obstacle. But when faced with her past, can she keep her s ecret life just that, a secret, or will the lovely façade she put up to save her and her son come crumbling down? Brady is a loveable, committed young man who loves football and his mother, but yearns to know who his father is and learn some history about his mother. Being a star on the football team, and facing the many women who pursue him constantly, Brady has a hard time battling with his promise to save his virginity until he gets married.
