Zola Denise Norwood is the hot young editor in chief of Bling Bling. (The magazine "for people who want everything!") She's at the top of her game, ruling the roost in business as well as the bedroom. Having discovered "the power of three" (not tying herself down to just one guy), Zola surrounds herself with a coterie of men: her best male friend, the gay Hayden; her Monday night man, Jabar; and the married Bling Bling owner and media mogul Davis Vincent McClinton, a man who chases power at all costs. Still, Zola dreams of finding true love.
Raymond Tyler, Jr., a favorite and classic Harris character, has suffered a personal loss and picks up and moves to New York to re-build his life. As CEO of Bling Bling, Raymond struggles to enjoy his newfound success in business as he searches for love and meaning in his personal life. John Basil Henderson returns with a new lady in his life, and Raymond and Basil renew a friendship that is fraught with sexual tension. As Raymond examines his life and strains to move forward, tragedy strikes, and Raymond faces his biggest challenge ever.
As Zola and Raymond search for a love of their own, several characters from the past make cameo appearances and round out another E. Lynn Harris classic tale. A Love of My Own is filled with all the marvelous ingredients the author's fans the globe over have come to love. Sit back and get ready as E. Lynn Harris takes you on another satisfying and rip-roaring ride.

"An entertaining confection....True to form, Harris keeps the sex, scandal and drama churning." (People)
"A tangled web of love, lust, deception and intrigue." (Ebony)
"A more serious effort than Harris's previous works, this book is loaded with sensational goings-on and characters, both old and new, who will keep readers returning for more of the same." (Publishers Weekly)
I hate to speak ill of the dearly departed but Mirron Willis should have performed this novel. E. Lynn Harris' tone was quite bland. He left me yearning for Mirron Willis, who in my opinion, is the real Raymond Tyler.
Performance was lacking expression.
Yes. This book was amazing with all the different characters and each having their own story and secrets.
Raymond.. I have just loved his character since the first book I read with him.
No I havent.
A love of my own and the secrets that come with that love.
A quick, easy and typically enjoyable E.Lynn Harris write. I am so hoping we haven't heard the last of Raymond and Basil. I never was crazy about Yancey B so I hope she and her Mom have been laid to rest. Crazy people!! Zola and Hayden were fun as were some of the other characters introduced. You know you are into a book when you feel like hugging (Raymond), slapping (Davis), kissing (Basil) or hugging (Hayden) someone! On to Just To Good to be True and then Basketball Jones!!
