B-Boy Blues had me staying up until 3am just to find out about 'Pooquie' and 'Little Bit'. I had a hard time getting through 2nd time around. I have all the books to B-Boy Blues I hope they get better.

After reading this novel I was able to realize just how blind I have been to the gay/bisexual lifestyle. I now realize why men do some of the things they do while trying to maintain a relationship with a man and a woman the choices they must make the pain and mis-understanding, the concept of: Keeping it on the DL (Down Low). Mitchell and Raheim have a good relationship, but there is something missing as it is in most relationships: commitment and loyalty. Hardy gives us a damn good idea of the Baby Mama drama meets: Is that your Boyfriend? (Asked by the obvious onlookers). It is a compelling story with all the things we ever wanted to know about: B Boys, Brothas on tha Down Low and men who love men. I enjoyed the book and it will stand paramount in my mind I am certain of that. Good book for a summer read.

AM ABOUT 2-3PAGES FINISH, THIS OFF IS OFF THE HOOK AM HOPING THAT RAMIEAM WILL EVER TELL HIS MOTHER, SUNSHINE AND YES THAT NO GOOD FATHER OF HIS. WHEN I READ THE PART ABOUT HIS FATHER AND WHAT HE DID TO THE MOTHER AND SON AND EVEN LIL BROTH MAN IT BROKE MY HEART, CAUSE I TOO WENT THROW THE SAME THING THEY WENT THROW. WHEN I SAW THE BACK OF THE BOOK TO LET ME KNOW MORE ABOUT THE BOOK IT REALLY GOT TO ME ABOUT THE FATHER PART AND THE RAHIEM WAS GAY. BEING A GAY MAN MYSELF I COULD FEEL WHAT HE WAS GOING THROW.... TO SOME IT ALL UP ONCE AGAIN THIS BOOK WAS OFF THE HOOK.....

THIS BOOK KEEPS YOUR ATTENTION WITH THE FAMILY AND RELATIONSHIP ISSUES . ALSO THE EBONICS, THE WAY HARDY PUT THE HIP-HOP SLANG IN THE BOOK MADE ME WANT TO READ IT BECAUSE HE USES WORDS LIKE I USE WORDS. HARDY IS A BRILLIANT WRITER.

ok, i read this book before i read b boy blues and i have to say that this was better. great and really believable storylines. you hate Pookie you love pookie, either way it's all good. in the end everything manages to work themself out. i really recommend though that you read the first book first as to not be lost in the gist of things. anyway... read and find out what the hype is about.

Versatile- That's the word that best describes Hardy's talent. I never read a trilogy with three such distinctive writing styles, all aptly suited to the subject. I read this novel three years ago. I recently reread it. I have to say, I loved it even more the 'Second Time Around.' It is so eloquent, so expressive, so beautiful; it is like a love letter to Little Bit from Pooquie. The black gay community is lucky to have an uncompromising voice such as Hardy. Thanks once again.

I feel like this is the best out of the three. It was interestingly written, and unbelievably heart taking, I have cried a few times through out the story, It's amazing, he did it again!! I will cherish and base my life on the love Rahiem (pookie) and Mitchell (lit'le bit) share.Keep up the good work J.E.H.

Maybe I wasn't as gripped as I was with B-BOY BLUES, but THE SECOND TIME AROUND did have it's good points. Rahiem's love for his son and his devotion to his true love kept the story in place. I was glad to be on the inside track as Rahiem began to go upscale with his modeling career, but to tell the truth, even with all the juicy secrets and backstory, his character didn't have the same appeal without his other half. Still, one truly enjoyable ride.

I just finished part two of Mr. Hardy's books ('B-Boy Blues' being the first part) and I loved it! First of all 'B-Boy Blues' was in the words of Little Bit's and now it is Pooquie's turn in '2nd Time Around'. With this book, anyone can read it: Straight or Gay. It is a book about two people in a relationship, two people in love; the ups and downs. Some people turn their nose up to the fact that it happens to be two men. If they can get over that (which is very small), they will see that this is a great book! Well done Mr. Hardy! I only hope that there are more books to come! Let me stop here so I can get buy his next book! :-)
