E. Lynn Harris has wowed and seduced more than three million readers with the wicked drama and undeniable heart in his novels. Now he’s back with another winner sure to top the bestseller lists—a rip-roaring tale of sex, secrets, betrayal . . . and blackmail.

Aldridge James “AJ” Richardson is living the good life. He has a gorgeous town house in always-flavorful New Orleans, plenty of frequent-flier miles from jet-setting around the country on a whim, and an MBA—but he’s never had to work a regular job. He owes it all to his longtime lover, Dray Jones. Dray Jones the rich and famous NBA star. They fell in love in college when AJ was hired to tutor Dray, a freshman on the basketball team. But Dray knew if he wanted to make it to the big time, he must juggle his public image and his private desires. Built on a deep, abiding love, their hidden relationship sustains them both, but when Dray’s teammates begin to ask insinuating questions about AJ, 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 forced to conform to the rules society demands its public heroes follow. Filled with nonstop twists and turns, it will keep readers riveted from the first page to the last.

leider starb der Author. Ich habe in den letzten Jahren alle seine Bücher vorab bestellt, denn ich wußte, er hat den Schreibstil, den ich bei einem (für mich) guten Buch brauche. Verwundert bin ich nur, dass es keine deutschen Übersetzungen gibt (ich lese sie gerne im Original, kann sie aber deswegen nicht an Freunde weiterempfehlen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Now thats what I call a GREAT read!!! 2. Februar 2009

E Lynn Harris has once again knocked me out with his work! "Basketball Jones" was so good it was hard for me to put it down, and I was sad when I reached the ending!!
Aldridge "AJ" Richardson and Drayton "Dray" Jones have been secret lovers since AJ tutored Dray in Algebra back in college. Dray goes on to have a successful NBA career and AJ is still in his life, as a secret of course. Dray can't imagine his family or teammates finding out he is gay. So AJ goes along with keeping the relationship a secret, even when Dray takes a wife to quiet questions about his relationship with AJ. Aj deals with it becasue he loves Dray and Dray takes very good care of AJ financially. AJ happily follows Dray around the country just to make his "man" happy.
Unfortunately, there is someone who knows about AJ and Dray and they will stop at nothing to either get paid or expose the sordid affair of a married NBA star and his gay lover.
This book is 100 % a must read and a compelling story about love and how far someone will go to keep secrets.

E Lynn is such an amazing author and captures the reader from start to finish. Basketball Jones is an intense story of two men in a relationship with many twist and turns

I love how E Lynn novels are the perfect mixture of classy with a raw touch and Basketball Jones is just that. Trust me, this is well worth the money and you WILL NOT be disappointed!! Good Job E Lynn!!

Basketball Jones was a great read. Loved the two main characters. I was drawn into their complex relationship. AJ had to make some great sacrifices, some would say he was well compensated. But you can't curl up next to that "money" at night. I did not like how he handled Miss Judi... she would have had to feel the "wrath" at least a little. He let her off too easy. Otherwise I loved the book, I hope AJ finds love in a sequel.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Time Out 8. Februar 2009
Von OOSA Online Book Club - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
E. Lynn Harris' latest endeavor, "Basketball Jones," takes readers into a very familiar setting. Aldridge James "AJ" Richardson is an openly gay man. The love of his life, however, is not. Dray Jones, an NBA player, has been involved with AJ since college. Because of society's prejudices, his status as an athlete, and his family, AJ has been sworn to secrecy about their relationship. But when someone threatens it all, is it time to come out of the closet?

"Basketball Jones" is a very quick read. As usual, Harris delivers a well-written novel with good pace and timing. But even so, the story was predictable and one to easily be forgotten as nothing stood out. I couldn't help the feeling of deja vu. Not in the sense that I've read this exact story before, but rather the formula ~ gay guy + down low/confused guy + sports + family, particularly a father that won't understand + wife and/or baby to camouflage. I like E. Lynn Harris, but I'd like to see something a little different with his future endeavors.

Basketball Jones

I just finished reading Basketball Jones and I absolutely enjoyed it. This book is vintage E. Lynn Harris. The relationships are complex and intense. He captures the varied perspectives of the characters and leaves you wanting a sequel because you do not want the story to end. I am a HUGE fan and have read all his books. Now I have to get my girls to read this one so we can talk about it over lunch and a mojito!
