    New York Times best-selling author Carl Weber is a master at portraying unforgettable characters and complex, passionate relationships. Voluptuous Loraine Farrow is as successful as she is curvy, but life is never easy when you want to have your cake and eat it too. With her husband Leon confronting issues from his past, trouble arises on the homefront - and more drama is on the way in the form of Michael, an ex-lover desperate to rekindle his and Loraine’s once torrid flame.

    Story

    I loved this book, I can usually see the dramatic plot twist from a mile away but I was caught off guard with this one until the very end. This is a story that just makes you say WTF but in a completely satisfying way. If you love drama and a story with plenty of plot twists and turns this is definitely for you. This book will not give you the answers to life's tough question but it will definitely give you an escape from everyday life. And Peter was giving me LIFE... I love to get one good crazy ass character in a story. In my *In Living Color* voice, I give this three snaps in a Z formation....

    Winner of the African American Literary Award for Fiction, Essence® best-selling author Victoria Christopher Murray delivers a cautionary tale about debt and the dangers of an overly tempting offer. Married at 17, Adam and Evia Langston have worked their way up from rags to riches. But as they are enjoying all the trappings of their success, a financial downturn leaves them teetering on the brink of disaster. And that’s when Evia’s boss makes the Langstons a fivemillion dollar offer they can’t refuse.

    Story
    What did you like best about The Deal, the Dance, and the Devil? What did you like least?

    I thought the performance and narration were really well done. I like the point that the story made overall about what is important in life and what is fleeting.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I liked how the author showed the day to day reality that today's economy can have on a family. I didn't like the "subtle"clues about Shay Shante's true identity, that definitely made parts of the story very corny. I also didn't like how the story was so drawn out in moments such as the countdown portion, you know what's going to happen so I wanted to get to it. The entire story takes place over a 30 day period so the auditor definitely packed in alot of detail into those days, maybe too much.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the scene at the end of the book, because it was slightly eerie and unusual to hear Shay Shante in that context.


    Could you see The Deal, the Dance, and the Devil being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I could definitely see this as a movie because it is very compelling for today's economy. I think a Lynn Whitfield type could definitely play Shay Shante, she is the most compelling character. And it would be really cool to see flashback scenes of the weekend, after it happens.
