About the Author

THOMAS GREEN, Jr. has published ten successful novels; Love’s Home Run (1997), Courting Miss Thang (1998), Player No More (2002), When It Hurts So Bad (2003), Tabu (2004), The Christmas Party (2005), Change For A Dyme (2006), Purple Lipstick (2007), Larry’s Girls (2008), and Decatur Cab (2010). Thomas writes love stories involving professional athletes, taking both male and female readers into another side of the lives of ballplayers, their need for steady, real love. The fact that they are well-developed love stories appeals to female readers. The sports and in depth way Thomas handles the ball players and their private times in the locker rooms, before and after games, delights male readers as well as females who either have played sports, love sports or have a natural curiosity. Other authors have touched on pro athletes but none have the credentials to impress readers like Thomas Green. He has played all the sports he writes about, both competitively and for fun. He played semi-pro baseball and football in New York. Thomas has traveled across the country, and to the Caribbean, to play in baseball tournaments. Thomas was a sports reporter in New York, working for the New York Post, The Gannett Westchester Newspapers and The City Sun, a Black-owned weekly newspaper. He has covered all levels of sporting events, from high school to professional. He uses his many varied experiences in playing ball, covering athletes and trying to fall in love to weave readable, likable characters with strong storylines that readers relate to and enjoy.

Format: Paperback
Vinnie Slight, a New York Knicks basketball player, is leading an unfulfilled career as a professional benchwarmer player, as well as having an unrewarding love life. His aggressive and demanding girlfriend, Noreen, hounds him constantly for an engagement, while Vinnie backs off, not wanting to commit.

Frences is a promising Los Angeles medical student with a scorching, burning secret she is hiding. When her baby's father, Odell, becomes imprisoned for a long time, she withdraws a substantial amount of money from his bank account and taking her young daughter, Misha, she escapes to Toronto, hoping to bury her dark secret, tumultuous past and begin anew. Frences can not get far enough away from Odell, her baby's father, and abuser from her past. These secrets have caused her family to disown her, and to acquire legal custody of Misha.

Meanwhile, to Vinnie's dismay, he is traded to the Toronto Raptors. Vinnie's hook-up with an old college chum, Paul, who resides in the same building as Frences, allows Vinnie to meet Frences, and there is an instant, mutual attraction.

Frences is a medical student being blackmailed by her Supervisor, Dr. Terry Puhl, who knows about her past deeds. Frences has the support of her best Friend, Dorisa, who wants her to end the physical relationship with the blackmailing Doctor, but Frences has fears of her past deeds becoming known and her budding career as a doctor dissolving. To Frences' shock and dismay, Odell sustains an early prison release, and has discovered her move to Toronto. Odell wants his $500,000 and hunts Frences to her Toronto digs to get back his money and to hurt Frences.

This is a love story...like no other.

Format: Paperback
After riding the bench for over a year on a winning NY Knicks team, NBA forward Vincent Slight has just been traded to the losing Toronto Raptors. With his once sizzling relationship with his attorney girlfriend fizzling out, he has no reason to be optimistic as he heads to Toronto and his new team.

Once in Toronto, Vincent moves in with an old teammate and realizes that the trade to Toronto may be his opportunity to resurrect his crumbling career. Then he meets and starts falling in love with the irresistibly beautiful Frences and his life starts looking up. Vincent's skill and enthusiasm soon propels the team to the top of their game and him into the ranks of superstardom. Suddenly, Vincent's freight train to happiness comes to a screeching halt. He discovers that his intended is none other than the infamous porn queen Miss Thang, who has moved to Toronto in an attempt to live down her tarnished reputation. Entangled in a web of sex, lies and videotapes, Frences sees no way out despite the fact that she has enrolled in medical school and is a good mother to her young daughter. But Vincent is a man in love. He is determined to weather the storm and build a relationship with Frences despite his misgivings.

As the knowledge filters out about his new love, his relationship with his chagrined teammates starts to sour and his enthusiasm for the game begins to wane. Then he discovers more disturbing information about Frences and her sordid past.

Will Vincent be able to ignore Frences' past and build a lasting love with her?

Thomas Green Jr. dishes up a marvelous love story simmering with sexual tensions and raw emotions.

Please, don't sleep on this book! It was all that. One of the best books I've read in 2005! I had been trying to get this book for about 6 months, and it was a good read. I am looking forward to Mr. Green's next novel. I won't tell the story, but you won't be able to put this one down!!
