"Is She for REAL"

This is a well thought out story of love, sex, hidden secrets, and betrayal. I really liked this book. E. Lynn Harris is probably the most popular black fiction writer today, and his novels blend romantic stories that deal with controversial issues such as race, AIDS, and bisexuality.In this story, Basil Henderson, a handsome ex-football player who has a history of loving both men and women, decides to marry Yancey, a fledging Broadway star. There marriage is only two months away and fate seems to be threatening their possible future together. Ava, Yancey's mother, who has always controlled her daughter, is about to meet her match in Basil. Is Yancey as bad as she seems, or is she really in love? Is she for real? Or is she just out for Basil's money? And how can Basil keep his other sexual life a secret from his future bride? Is he ready to be a give up his affairs with men. The story becomes more and more complicated as secrets are kept and more lies are told. What will really happen? I did care about these characters and how their lives were going to turn out. I think that's a good sign of a talented writer. I will be eager to see what this author has in store for us in his next book. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. It's got my recommendation!


E.Lynn Harris has done it yet again and he brought Basil Henderson along for the ride. I expected nothing less from this awesome,talented and powerful author. I couldn't wait to get my copy and had it reserved for weeks before it's release date. The story pulls you in to an unforgettable and shocking tale of your past coming back to haunt you and it will definately keep you glued to your sit. From beginning to end this was a HOT book to read. Our book club is eagerly waiting to discuss this book as we do all of his others. This book deserves a plus 5 star rating and will be on the bestseller list for weeks and months to come. You won't be disappointed with this book and if you're not an E.Lynn Harris fan already, there must to something wrong with you. You'll never forget him, his style or the characters he's created that, you'll come to love and hate. BRAVO! BRAVO! to E.Lynn. I'm looking to the memoirs book and I know there's a part II to this awesome and fierce book. Yancey and Ava are screaming it now. Plus, they need the tables turned on them and the screws tighten just a bit more. Hope you're listening to them.

Best Ever

By far this is the best novel the E.Lynn Harris has written. It took me 2 days to complete this novel and the only disapointment that I felt was that I was finished within two days. I enjoyed the way the novel switched the narrative on Basil and Yancey so that readers could get a feel of what they both were going through at the same time. By making Basil's personality a little softer he allows the readers to feel comfortable when taking his side on several issues which in his previous novels Basil is the person that we all love to hate but cannot resist.


Not A Day Goes By Is A Must Read!I've been a fan of E.Lynn Harris' since the debut novel of Invisible Life and have read every book in the series. E. Lynn remains a consistently good writer! Not A Day Goes By is another page turner and as such I read the book in one sitting. The story is well-crafted with a good storyline; realistic and dimensional characters; vivid imagery and shocking plot twist and turns. Basil and Yancey are back to put on the wedding of the century. But just before the big day secrets and deception rear their ugly heads. Harris begins Chapter One with Basil comtemplating the upcoming wedding day and whether or not he's making the right decision. From there you're hooked and must read the rest of the book to find out why. Not A Day Goes By has the Classic Recipe for a delicious book: love, sex, romance, deception, raw ambition and intrigue. Add to it a pinch of lust, trust, betrayal, revenge, and a sprinkle of the sport's and entertainment industry. Mix it all together and you have all of the necessary ingredients. Not A Day Goes By is prepared with all of the plot twists, memorable characters and shocking surprises that keep one coming back to an E. Lynn book.

E. Lynn Harris strikes back again

E. Lynn:First off, let me commend you on yet another masterpiece! I read Not a Day Goes By cover to cover within a day, just as my roommate did. It was excellent! You know, that Yancey may have a heart after all. But, it's impossible to drink from a well that's gone dry. Then there's Basil who is so confused he doesn't quite know what to do with himself. Yanceys' roommate Windsor was a wonderful addition to the story. I see that you left it somewhat open...does that mean that we will see Basil and Yancey again? My book club, Sistah Circle hosted your book signing of Abide With Me at Black Images in Dallas. I recall then that you said Basil might get his own book. Let me tell you, "YOU HAVE OUT DONE YOURSELF!" This book was absolutely marvelous. I received all of the invitations for Yancey and Basil's wedding, excellent idea. Whomever came up with that idea, always keep them on your team. Excellent marketing strategy. E. Lynn, what can I say besides, I simply love your books. Again I will say, since you first came into sistah's lives with Invisible Life, you have caused us to look and think twice about the men we deal with. We often times find ourselves saying, 'I hope he is not a Basil Henderson!' and praying that he is not. Please hurry with the next one, E. Lynn Harris books are my favorite. Please, do keep up the great work.Toni Jackson Dallas, TX
