    Meet Darryl Graham, or as his new neighbors call him, The Man in 3B. Darryl's new to the Jamaica, Queens building, but from day one he's made quite an impression on his neighbors. He has made it very clear he greatly values his privacy, but he is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be, so inquiring minds want to know. Unfortunately, in Darryl's world, what you know can hurt you. And when he winds up dead, those inquiring minds become the prime suspects.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this book. It was not horrible but all of his other titles have been so good that this one just did not measure up the same way in my opinion.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Either more characters or more content to the existing characters.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I just prefer audiobooks. With a good narrator it can come across as two friends talking.


    Any additional comments?

    Still worth reading.

    This one was just as good as the others for me! It was hard to put it down but as the same time dread because it would end soon. I appreciate Carl Weber not ending it on a cliffhanger, also liked seeing how some of the other family members are in action. Good book/series.

    New York Times best-selling author Carl Weber and award-winning novelist Eric Pete team up to deliver the first in a much-anticipated new trilogy. The Family Business features two times the heat, two times the fun, and two times the drama as the members of an unforgettable family (not to mention their lovers and hangers-on) find their way in and out of trouble. As their many fans will attest, Weber and Pete share a talent for penning juicy fiction that their audience can’t get enough of.

    Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

    Just okay. The main character made so many bad choices it was a challenge to listen to because you're just wondering if she'll just get a clue. all if this just dragged the story along.

    Ripped from the pages of Carl Weber's New York Times best-selling Family Business series comes a solo story about his most popular character to date - the bright, sexy, and deadly Paris Duncan. Join Carl Weber and Eric Pete as they go back in time and take Paris Duncan to Europe, to the finishing school where she meets her first true love, makes her first real enemy, and commits her first crime. Listeners will get a thrilling inside view into the events that made Paris the lovely but lethal woman she is today.

    One again Carl Weber does it with a continuation of the family business. Nice to get some background on Ms. Paris Duncan.

    In this new short story from #1 New York Times best-selling author Lee Child, available exclusively as an eBook, a young Jack Reacher knows how to finish a fight so it stays finished. He knows how to get the job done so it stays done. And, in one of his earliest challenges, he knows that his analytical brain is just as important as his impressive brawn.

    Nursing wealthy businessman Chicago DuBois back to health was the least Loretta Lovelace figured she could do. After all, it was her bet that set off Loretta’s stalker - and put Madison’s husband at death’s door. And with Madison out of the country, Loretta couldn’t resist looking after Chicago’s interests and reigniting his passion for life - in and out of bed. But now Madison wants to take back what’s no longer hers, and that’s a mistake Loretta plans to make her regret. With a baby on the way and a family empire to save, Madison knows it’s past time to make some tough decisions.

    If you could sum up I’d Rather Be with You in three words, what would they be?

    It was okay.


    Would you recommend I’d Rather Be with You to your friends? Why or why not?

    Only is they had aleadry read "If I Can't Have You".
    This book is not the best stand alone title in fact if not for me reading the first book I may not have finished this one because the beginning was not very good to me. However I must say that it did get better over time.


    What aspect of Cary Hite’s performance would you have changed?

    Cary is a good narrator but they should have gotten someone else to do the female characters. Especially after having the previous book done that way and developing southern belle voices. There was no way Cary could make that happen.


    If you could rename I’d Rather Be with You, what would you call it?

    Loretta Loses Her Mind


    Any additional comments?

    When the book first started I was like what the hell?! but of course I have to finish it since I am already invested and it did get better. I didn't care for the way the Loretta charcter turned out because the way she was initially presented just did not show even one inkling of the person she ultimately became. Overall at the beginning I thought aww this isnt so good but it did get better. Also, there were things like Grandville gets 50 years but in the next breath he is running around town. I'm not sure what is going on but nevetheless since I have already started this series I will continue. There is still a chance that the next one will be better or just as good as the first one.
