Publisher's Summary

He is a devilish and handsome ex-football player, now a rising sports agent at one of the hottest firms in the country. Irrepressible and dangerously alluring, John "Basil" Henderson has a history with women ( and a few men). Basil is the consummate guy's guy: a commitment-phobe gadfly known for a double-edged magnetism that has the ability to thrill...and wound. She is the uncompromising Yancey Harrington Braxton, an up-and-coming Broadway star who oozes charm and bleeds ambition. Young, beautiful, and dangerously crafty, Yancey is prepared to do whatever she must to get what she wants. A femme fatale who has left more than a few brokenhearted men in her wake, Yancey is intrigued and besotted by Basil.
Both believe that in each other they've finally met their match. A lavish wedding is planned, and the ultimate power couple plans to spend their lives in holy matrimony. But just before the nuptials, fate and a little comeuppance from the past threaten the happy couple's future. Masterful storyteller E. Lynn Harris takes the listener on a delicious ride into the mischievous lives of two very unforgettable characters.

Not a day goes by

This was an awesome story. I think I liked the tangled web that was being weaved as the story went on. I couldn't turn my player off! I had to get in the shower with my player under my shower cap!!!

I'm looking forward to reading more of his books.

Superb Storytelling

E. Lynn Harris certainly has a way with telling a story. That's a big plus. Unfortunately, what he doesn't have is big, too. And that is a way with words. Harris has the habit of repeating certain catch phrases and dialog idioms. Many times different characters "speak" in the same way using the same words. It's difficult to distinguish one character from another because of that deficiency, and the narrator, certainly an accomplished Broadway actor, doesn't shade the characters and make them unique individuals. However, let's not quibble because I really enjoyed this tale of a man and woman, both very unlikeable, who, because of circumstances, come to be much better people. I liked the locales, the characters and the situations in which they find themselves. Very entertaining, and I will definitely listen to his other books carried here on
