Brady Bledsoe and his mother, Carmyn, have a strong relationship. A single mother, faithful churchgoer, and the owner of several successful Atlanta beauty salons, Carmyn has devoted herself to her son and his dream of becoming a professional football player. Brady has always followed her lead, including becoming a member of the church’s “Celibacy Circle.” Now, in his senior year at college, the smart and very handsome Brady is a lead contender for the Heisman Trophy and a spot in the NFL. As sports agents hover around Brady, a beautiful and charming cheerleader named Barrett enters the picture. Barrett is set on seducing Brady and getting a piece of his multimillion-dollar future. But is that all she wants from him? Is she acting alone? In a story that combines football, family, faith and secrets, Just Too Good to Be True is a sweeping novel that proves once and again why E. Lynn Harris is a bestselling author.

    " The first one I've read by this popular black author and I'm impressed. Great character development, well developed (albeit predictable) story about romance, sex, families and character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Tk | 2/10/2014

    " This book was good. Not as good as some of the others, but enough to keep you entertained and curious as to what will happen next. Villans are the same trifling sneaky backstabbers. I felt some of the main characters were hard to swallow. The Mother and the son were very naive. But I did like that one of his old charcters makes some apperances. "
