Publisher's Summary

Harris serves up a treat that will capture and enchant audiences everywhere - a big, bold, and irresistible novel about football, family, and secrets.

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, Barrett, a beautiful and charming cheerleader, sets her mind on tempting the celibate Brady and getting a piece of his multimillion-dollar future - but is that all she wants from him, and is she acting alone?

Carmyn is determined to protect her son. She's also determined to protect the secret she's kept from Brady his whole life. As things heat up on campus and Carmyn and Brady's idyllic relationship starts to crumble, mother and son begin to wonder about the other - are you just too good to be true?

A sweeping novel about mothers and sons, football and beauty shops, secrets and lies, Just Too Good to Be True has all the ingredients that have made E. Lynn Harris a best-selling author: family, friendship, faith, and love.

    "WRONG VOICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    This book is a good read but the only thing that I had to get use to was the main characters voice. His voice sounded to much like a dumb country boy that didn't know right from wrong, and his voice sounded more of a older man like a father figure than a young college student. If u can get pass the male voice, it is a pretty good book to listen to.

    ""Entertaining""

    Not one of his best but entertaining nonetheless, less gay charicters and a little more coniving and shallow charicters but I always enjoy his style of writing and knowledge of the African American Community

    "An author for all"

    E. Lynn Harris is a great author who moved away from his usual topic but still manage to pull me in with his twist and turns. In this book the story was so deep and rich I just could not wait to hear what happened next. The way the story is read was five stars. I have read and listen to many of his books and this on was great and I just can't wait for the next.
