In the sixth and final title of his groundbreaking, bestselling B-Boy Blues series, James Earl Hardy brings his beloved couple -- Mitchell, the Buppie from Brooklyn, and Raheim, the homeboy from Harlem -- into the twenty-first century.
As they prepare for the birthday party of Raheim's fifteen-year-old son, Errol (formerly known as "Junior" and "Li'l Brotha Man"), Mitchell and Raheim both juggle their own midlife crises and consider once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
With the Big 4-0 just three years away, Mitchell is a little antsy: He has a very successful freelance writing career, but he longs for something more. And that something more finds him -- a dream job from a most unlikely place. But he's gotten very comfortable working his own schedule and being a stay-at-home dad -- does he really want to return to the daily grind of punching a time clock again?
Raheim has just officially entered his thirties -- and, unfortunately, has the one gray hair to prove it. And after years of coming this close to getting roles won by the likes of Taye Diggs and Mekhi Phifer, he is finally offered the lead in a film that could make him a star. But will he do what no other Black actor has done before: play gay and come out in the process?
James Earl Hardy draws on the themes that put him on the map -- love, family, and high drama in tandem with media phenomena like same-sex marriage, the down-low, gay adoption, and homo thugs -- to create another vivid, vibrant, and saucy portrait of Black same-gender-loving (SGL) life and love.

James Earl Hardy has written for Essence, Newsweek, Entertainment Weekly, the Washington Post, the Advocate, and the Source. The recipient of many prestigious honors and awards, he lives in Atlanta, Georgia.From Booklist:
"It ain't easy being a divorced father of two." Too true for freelance writer Mitchell, a stay-at-home dad raising Elliot, his godson, and his little daughter, Destiny. He runs the household systematically, so that Elliot grabs his duffel bag, and Destiny her backpack and Little Bill lunchbox, at precisely 8:05 a.m. to leave for school together. Life runs smoothly, but . . . The sixth and last novel in Hardy's gay African American B-Boy Blues series, the saga of Mitchell and homeboy actor-model Raheim recaps action from past episodes, including Raheim's acclaimed supporting role in Rebound, his film debut. Since passed over for plum roles, including the football player in Jerry Maguire, Raheim does TV, is spokesman for All-American Jeans, and is 12-stepping through a serious gambling jones. Now his big break looms just as his ex, Mitchell, sees his own professional opportunity knocking. Can the lovers reunite? Of course, but the pleasure's in the process in Hardy's sexy, romantic soaper that's sure to please present fans and garner more. Whitney Scott
