When Somebody Loves You Back

Mary B. Morrison. Dafina Books, $24 (285pp) ISBN 978-0-7582-0730-2

Hot sex and high drama move Morrison's latest page turner featuring NBA star Darius Jones, his fiancee Fancy Taylor, his mother Jada Diamond Taylor and her husband Wellington Jones (who raised Darius, though he's not his biological father). Darius plays more than just basketball: he's juggling the demands of his ""baby mama,"" Ashlee, his tumultuous relationship with the fierce, sexy Fancy (also carrying his child), and the question of his HIV status. Meanwhile, Jada and Wellington face difficulties in their marriage at the same time he's diagnosed with prostate cancer. Jada is too preoccupied to realize that once again her life has become fodder for her friend Candice Jordan, the opportunistic writer who once chronicled Jada's affairs for a screenplay. This time, Candice plans to include Darius in her story. When it comes to her characters' sexual exploits-in bed, in the car and on the couch-Morrison leaves nothing to the imagination, and before Darius, Fancy, Jada and crew learn their lessons and do the right thing, Morrison packs in dozens of juicy episodes sure to titillate fans of Nothing Has Ever Felt Like This.
