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.

About J.J. Murray:

Born outside Philadelphia in 1963, I have lived in New Jersey (North Plainfield, Mountainside, Scotch Plains), Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh), Missouri (St. Louis), New York (Huntington), and Indiana (West Lafayette, College Corners) before settling in Roanoke, Virginia, in 1985 to teach high school English to students who sometimes speak it. Roanoke, then, is my fist real home.

Three cars, three more moves (Roanoke, Shawsville, Salem), and two returned engagement rings later, I met my future wife, Amy Renee, at a high school football game. After out first date at McDonald's (now a Japanese steakhouse) and a romantic drive to Pott's Mountain Overlook in the Appalachian Mountains...we fell in love.

Five years of secret courtship later, we married at the Pentecostal Holiness Church-of-God-in-Christ, and later that year, Joshua Malik was born. Four years later, Jontae Emmanuel joined out family.

When we get a rare chance for a vacation, we go to Aylen Lake, Ontario, the Murray family “homestead.”
