Book Review: Basketball Jones

Basketball Jones Basketball Jones by E. Lynn Harris

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Basketball Jones is the story of Aldridge “AJ” Richardson and his boyfriend, NBA star Dray Jones. They’ve been in love for seven years but must keep their relationship a secret to avoid jeopardizing Dray’s career. Dray even goes so far as to marry a woman, Judi. Trouble ensues when someone starts blackmailing AJ and Dray and threatens to expose them.

I listened to this book on audio and I think that added to my enjoyment of it. The narrator, Mirron Willis’s voice is as smooth as silk and the tone he used for Dray was incredibly sexy. The blackmailer’s identity was supposed to be a mystery until the end, although I had it figured out well before AJ did. I didn’t mind though because I loved the characters so much and was having fun following along, even if it was predictable. AJ and Dray had a very tender, loving relationship and I enjoyed that aspect as well.

I’m sad that E. Lynn Harris passed away earlier this year. This is the first book of his I’ve read and I’m looking forward to reading the others.
