She's had celebrity, isn't hurting for money, and is living peacefully single in Charlotte, North Carolina. Still, Sonya Richardson can't resist starring on a hit reality dating show to give America a taste of what a real black woman is like. And this former pro athlete is breaking all of "Hunk Or Punk's" rules, refusing to bling-up like a diva, and tackling whatever high-octane drama her suitors have in store. But one contestant is throwing Sonya off her game. He's surprisingly kind, way too easy to spill her secrets to--and giving her the kind of hope she hasn't felt in a long, long time. . .
Widowed former pastor John Bond knows he's the show's "designated white guy," expected to fail every challenge and be gone in a month. He also knows he has to take risks to change his lonely life and find love again. The odds may be against him, but Sonya's honesty and resourcefulness are inspiring him to do whatever it takes to stay in the running, win her heart. . .and prove their dreams can be a reality.

Murray (I’ll Be Your Everything, 2012) orchestrates another smart, entertaining interracial romance. When former WNBA star Sonya is invited to star on a bachelorette reality show, she views it as an opportunity to present the world with a smart, powerful black woman. Although he knows he is the lone Caucasian competing on the show, widowed former pastor John Bond thinks it’s time he found another wife. Between them, they break all the show’s rules, from eliminating several contestants at once, to revealing the lies and setups, and placing Christianity on the stage, front and center. Sonya’s secret daughter pretends to be her sister and keeps everyone guessing, including a contestant who is attracted to her. The remaining contestants are also fully dimensional and appealing. The book runs a little long, but Murray’s wonderful characters, caring perspective, humor, and the story’s fabulous ending make this a winning read. Those new to Murray will want to turn to the rest of his list. Murray fans old and new may also enjoy Terry McMillan’s titles. --Amy Alessio
