Before he died last year, E. Lynn Harris, supposedly wrote the first installment of a new series. It is about a bisexual owner of a Miami modeling agency named Bentley L. Dean III. Due to the economy, he reluctantly agrees to supply 15 models for a VIP party. Jah is his 18-year-old protege that has to substitute for a model that dropped out. Suddenly, the stakes are higher when Jah falls in love with a very dangerous, very famous, and very married man. Will Bentley's fatherly advice and guidance save Jah?
First of all, I didn't believe that E. Lynn Harris finished writing his last novel, Mama Dearest, let alone finish an entirely new novel. Secondly, it is uncharacteristic of him to name the heroin after a luxury car. I am used to the late author's books having substance, being well-written, and leaving me with a lesson or relevant message. Will this posthumous work live up to expectations and standards?
The hardcover will be released on June 22, 2010. So far, there are six reviews posted on Amazon with an average rating of 3.5 stars. Ouch! Read them and determine for yourself whether In My Father's House is worthy of pre-ordering, or even reading.
