DARIUS JONES by Mary B. Morrison (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“There’s not a dull moment in this shamelessly flamboyant romp that Morrison’s many fans are sure to devour.” (Publishers Weekly)
Darius Jones has it all: a star basketball career and a family he is crazy in love with. But one night, a tragic accident turns his life upside down. When a stalker groupie convinces a heartbroken Darius to escape his sorrows for just one night, he doesn’t realize just how far she’ll go to keep him for herself.

Basketball star Darius Jones has it all. He's got a chance to become the league's most valuable player, and he's crazy in love with his wife and son. But one night, a tragic accident turns his life upside down, leaving his wife, Fancy, in a coma with a slim chance of surviving. His estranged ex-wife Ashlee immediately seizes the chance to fight for custody of their son, claiming that Darius’ demanding schedule and emotional turmoil make him an unfit father. As a heartbroken Darius struggles to keep his head in the game while grieving and hoping for his wife and trying to win his son back, a stalker groupie convinces him to escape his sorrows for just one night. But Darius doesn’t realize that his sexiest fan has much more in store for her obsession—and she'll do whatever it takes to ensure that Darius becomes her man and that Fancy doesn't leave the hospital alive.
