If You Like Leslie Esdaile Books, You’ll Love…

Sister Got Game follows a Philadelphia newcomer named Darien Jackson. She is in debt and single, but she is hoping to make a fresh start in the City of Brotherly Love. Darien enjoys the finer things in life and ends up falling for a man by the name of Maxwell Ferguson. He is a repo man who takes her car away, but she is drawn to him nonetheless. However, his family’s disapproval of their relationship and her unnecessary spending could stop the two of them from finding true love.

Another book by Leslie Esdaile is Keepin’ It Real. The show focuses on a reality show producer named Natasha Ward who falls for one of the contestants on her show. She pitched the show as a dating game for women like her, but thought that she would be able to simply be a producer on the show. She knows that the potential relationship could mean a major scandal with dire consequences, but she’s willing to take the risk for Tyrell. He is the owner of a failing record company and the show’s $250,000 prize is something that he desperately needs. What he doesn’t expect is such a strong reaction from the show’s producer and what will come next.
