Details: Product Description AJ Richardson is living the good life. Thanks to his longtime lover, NBA star Dray Jones, he has a gorgeous townhouse in New Orleans, plenty of frequent-flier miles, and an MBA he’s never had to use. Built on a deep and abiding love, their hidden relationship sustains them both. But when Dray’s teammates begin to ask insinuating questions, Dray puts their doubts to rest by marrying Judi, a beautiful and ambitious woman. Judi knows nothing about Dray's “other life.” Or does she?   In Basketball Jones, E. Lynn Harris explores the consequences of loving someone who is desperate to conform. Filled with nonstop twists and turns, it will keep readers riveted from the first page to the last. Review “There’s nothing like a little love triangle. . . . Steamy.” — Seattle Post-Intelligencer “Harris’s books are hot, in more ways than one.” — The Philadelphia Inquirer “Harris is a great storyteller who knows how to tug on the heartstrings with wit and sensitivity.” — USA Today   “Keeps the sex, scandal and drama churning.” – People   “[Harris’s] prose is clean and engaging, the characters compelling, and the plot fast and twisted.” — Seattle Weekly    “Slam-dunk entertainment. . . . A big score for novel lovers.” — Insight News   “A story of intrigue. . . . We come to understand why, even in our enlightened time, a pro athlete cannot feel that being openly gay is an option.” — The Lincoln Journal Star (Nebraska)   “Scandalously entertaining. . . . A look into the glitz and glamour of the NBA.” — Urban Reviews   “In true E. Lynn fashion, there’s betrayal, deceit, secrets and of course, sex; all leading to a high-impact denouement.” — Bleu magazine    “Harris . . . create[s] characters that remind us of someone we know. . . . Titillating.” — GBM News    “Since his first novel . . . Harris has challenged and delighted his readers with juicy stories of love, betrayal and the lives of beautiful people. . . . Fast-paced, funny [and] hip.” — Bookreporter About the Author E. Lynn Harris was an eleven-time New York Times bestselling author.

One Although I have two degrees, including an MBA from Georgia State University, I haven't worked a nine-to-five since I met Dray. When we first moved to Atlanta, I was kept busy furnishing his new condo and my town house, which were about ten minutes apart. Even though we spent a lot of time together, Dray thought it best that we have separate living quarters. I understood that. I even picked up a few clients for interior design work and then pursued my MBA at night but didn't tell Dray about it, because he made it clear he wanted me to be able to travel at a moment's notice to attend his road games. Being Dray's love at times was like having a full-time job. I was responsible for purchasing most of his NBA wardrobe, which meant his suits, shirts, underwear, and ties. He bought his own jeans and sneakers. I set up his computer and iPod and made sure he had the latest electronic gadget. Life was easy and good. I had season tickets to the Hawks: I didn't miss one home game and attended as many road games as I could get to.
