Morrison's Soulmates Dissipate and Honey Diaries series converge in an over-the-top finale 10 years in the making that wraps up a raw cast whose messed up and sexed up lives have made for some serious mama and daddy drama. Darius Henry Jones is an NBA star and heart target for Ashlee, the vengeful mother of his son, DJ. Ashlee wants custody and Darius's fiancée, Fancy Taylor, out of the picture. Then again, so does Darius's mom's new personal assistant, the bad news Bambi Bartholemew, who remembers Darius from school, even if Darius doesn't. Between Bambi and Ashlee, there's a flood of backstabbing, drama, and felonies. Meanwhile, Grant Hill, Darius's mother's fiancé, gets caught up in his own romantic snafus when he tries to snag former super madam Honey Thomas. There's not a dull moment in this shamelessly flamboyant romp that Morrison's many fans are sure to devour. (Aug.)
