This was a great book, looking at the cover i knew i would love it and i did. This plot was on point at all times, not one dull moment. There were so many twist and turns to keep you hooked but not to many to confuse you. I was some of everything but not overly gay like some of his books tend to be. One of the male characters reminded me of the guy from Housewives of ATLANTA, guess you have to read to find out who.

Jonesing For Early E. Lynn

While this book may have been a fun, light, fast read, it in no way packs the emotional punch of E. Lynn's earlier works, particularly Just as I Am and Invisible Life (or my personal favorite, And This Too Shall Pass). In recent years his books have become increasingly cartoonish, and Basketball Jones is no exception. He should be credited for not only starting an important dialogue about sexuality (brothers on the down low), gender, masculinity, and culture but for being willing to explore the complexities of these issues in ways that may not always be easy to empathize with. Bravo to E. Lynn, but if you've never read him before start with one of his better novels.
