    Law school, girlfriends, and career choices were all part of Raymond Tyler's life, but there were other, more terrifying issues for him to confront. Being black was tough enough, but Raymond was becoming more and more conscious of sexual feelings that he knew weren't "right."

    Would you try another book from Kimberla Lawson Roby and/or Peter Jay Fernandez?

    Yes will read more of books, but the narrator didnt bring life into the characters


    What was most disappointing about Kimberla Lawson Roby’s story?

    The Raquell storyline was a lil over the top and even though Dylan was psych he was pretty much an outcast the the Black family


    How could the performance have been better?

    More than one narrator


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Prodigal Son?

    Racquell not give away but what did to Matt would have written different where her an Matt beat the odds in the end

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Which scene was your favorite?

    Madison realizing you can't buy or manipulate true love


    Who was the most memorable character of If You Don't Know Me and why?

    Granville


    Any additional comments?

    Please keep Cary Hite as the narrator for character of Granville if another one comes out on audio. Cary has taken the character to a level nobody can duplicate he brings out the craziness in it making it more funny and enjoyable.Ezra Knight is one of my favorite narrators but not for Voice of Granville.

    What three words best describe Kevin Free’s voice?

    He was good, but towards the end of the book seems like he was tired or had a cold. You could clearly hear him swalloring, seem like he was out of breathe or his nose was clogged up it was kind of irritating.

    From the nationally best-selling author of Married Men comes this hilarious story of four black men searching for true love. Kevin's got the looks; Antoine's got the heart and soul; Tyrone's got the skills; and Maurice has all the player moves - but what they don't have are good women in their lives. What do they do? Call 1-900-BLACK-LUV, of course! The riotous experiences that follow have to be heard to be believed.
