    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.

    Story

    Wow how this story unfolded. I simply love the way the authors played the roles that they were assigned. I didn't really know what to expect but at the end of the book all the scheming that was taking place was brought together very well and each individual family members roll. I didn't expect so much drama and I was waiting to see who the first person in the family business was going to die. This book has some of the best narrators that urban fiction has to offer I love Patricia Floyd and Ezra Knight voices very strong. I would recommend this book to other Carl Weber fans.

    Trick Baby tells the story of White Folks, a blue-eyed, light-haired con artist whose pale skin allows him to pass in the streets as a white man. Folks is tormented early in life, rejected by other children and branded a "trick baby," a child conceived between a hooker and her trick. Refusing to abandon his life in the ghetto and a chance at revenge, Folks is taken under the wing of an older mentor, Blue. What happens next is unbelievable.

    Story

    What I liked about the book was the suspense and the story line. What I didn't care too much about was the length of the book. I gave this book a try to find something new and it just wasn't my favorite. Although this wasn't the best book I have listened to I know my fiancee would like this book. If you like books about scheeming, con artists and trickery this book would intrigue you.

    Jemistry Daniels is a bitter woman and not trying to hide it. Even though she is beautiful, intelligent, and makes six figures a year as a high school principal in Washington, DC, one man after another has failed her. So she decides to give up and join the party by adapting the entire "friends with benefits" mentality with a couple of men that she beds on the regular but refuses to hold any kind of real conversation with, in fear that she might actually catch feelings.

    This book was a great read. The narrator was good and the story line was pretty good. What I liked about this story was the way that Zane was able to show how friendships can go from all good and in the blink of an eye turn all bad. Your friends the people you learned to love and have a loyalty towards can become your worst enemy. I can't wait to see the play version of this book and fall in love with the characters that Zane created. Good job ZANE!

    Story

    I simply love the way that KiKi Swinson can put a story together. This book was a wonderful example of story telling and it captured my attention. Today's audience is so into the drama of things that happen on television, we never realize what happens during the taping of shows like Real Houswives, Basketball Wives and television shows like wife swap can have a major impact on the characters real lives. When we watch these shows we see what kind of people these are, you can only play a role for so long and after enough time goes by true character gets revealed. The grass isn't always greener or maybe it is with some folks. I always ask myself is the money worth me opening up my life to world. This book was a great of example of how money can ruin what you have to live for. In this book I found myself loving and hating the characters. My favorite thus far was was Trice and it's not just because I am a Trice myself but because the title of the book says it all "Wife Extraordinaire" and that is exactly what she is. The narrators did an excellent job bringing life and action to their words. This book actually helped open my mind to what would I do if I were in each of the characters shoes. I even asked my fiancee those "what if" questions to see if he would do the same thing that Troy did throughout the story. This is a great read and 2 thumbs up to Miss Kiki for this book right here.

    In this scorching, mournful, often explicit, and never less than moving literary novel by the famed creator of the Easy Rawlins series, Debbie Dare, a black porn queen, has to come to terms with her sordid life in the adult entertainment industry after her tomcatting husband dies in a hot tub. Electrocuted. With another woman in there with him. Debbie decides she just isn't going to "do it anymore". But executing her exit strategy from the porn world is a wrenching and far from simple process.

    Story

    I thought this story was going to be freaky deaky, sweat drenching, explicit to the max filled with sexual scenes that would take my mind to different levels. That's what I wanted and expected but that definately is not what this book was about. I am a lil disappointed but it was a reasonable story. I wasn't too intrigued by this book, not saying it wasn't good but I guess I wanted the RAW Hardcore raunchy explicit uncut version. Don't judge me that's just how I like my books. Bahni Turpin was phenominal with this read though, her voice is so assertive and live. Not a bad book, there was a lot going on around each and every corner. A lot of revelations that came to light within this book. This book just wasn't for me.

    Story

    I realized how much I love the author Jennifer Luckett her stories are so captivating and keep your mind going and you don't want to stop. What I loved about this audio was the performance the narrator was dabombdotcom. My favorite person in the book was Mr. Sam the nosey neighbor because he was the true definition of a horny old man. This story had many twists and turns where you never knew what was to happen next. Prince and Nicole's relationship and how they came to be together was a wonderful part of this story. It was different because they were loyal to one another from beginning to the end. One thing you will learn throughout this book is that loyalty means nothing in the streets and money talks. This book helped me realize that people do the craziest things and really no one knows nobody. Renegade was dirty oh so dirty and to the people who get in to this story will understand what I mean, all I can say is he took Dirty to a whole other level. Great story!

    Story

    I guess I like drama and twists and turns, that is the only reason the rating is so low because this book was not my cup of tea. There really wasn't anything that grasped my attention to make me wanna to stay tuned in this book. It took me about a week to finish this listen. It was like watching a daily soap opera and it takes a minute for the story to take off and get into. This just wasn't the book for me it would better suite a grandma or my mother. Not too much drama, just a little everyday type of conflict and a good clean story about regular ordinary kind of people.

    This was a different type of read only because I had to readjust my mind to a younger generation mind frame because kids these days weren't raised like I was. Mercedes was the true definition of spoiled rotten. This book wasn't bad it just seemed like the characters like Mercedes and Maria were naive and very passive and had no type of sense whatsoever they just did and thought what they were told. The story wasn't bad it just seemed to have a lapse of time from birth to teenager for Mercedes and unanswered questions regarding differnt charcters we met like Hazel and Chino. This performance wasn't bad and the voice matched the characters. All in all this story was for younger audience but I will read another book from this author. I do like how the book ended.

    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.

    I liked this book it was very suspenseful and helped me understand how Paris become the bad chick that we know her to be in other books. I love her loyalty to her family and you can tell she has always been loyal to her family even in the midst of her being in love. She is still a super freak and willing to do what she has to do to get the job done. The narrator brought life and emotion to this book. I was able to feel the suspense and fight in the words that were used and this author duo worked together very well. I will give this book two thumbs up and will continue to read Carl Weber and Eric Pete books. I am still amazed that Paris found love.

    Story

    This collection of short stories were really a hott mess. I think the theme I took from all these stories were little girls becoming women way before they were ready, and the men that did them wrong and the people they had to kill to find themselves. Although the stories were long and drawn out I can respect that the authors did their best in writing them. The narrators were pretty good but the stories could have been a lot better. I will not put these authors down but I will be watching to see how well their skills will develop. But to sum it all up "I'm not impressed".

    Story

    I am so excited to be introduced to this author and I will definitely be a supporter for this one. This book had my mind reeling and trying to define what a true ride or die chick is. Sparkle is the main chic in this book who is trying to know her place when it comes to her man. The things she goes through and puts up with from her man Sayveon are only things that a woman who really loves a man would do. I think what I like most was that Mississippi was the setting in this book and because I know that things like this really happen in the Sip my interest was peaked. Sayveon also gets a reality check that opens the door to his relationship with his folks while growing up. I enjoyed listening to the story unfold and seeing the path each character will take. I am ready for the next book to see what will happen to each characters life and how life experiences may or may not change them. this was a good book with a good narrator that will hold your attention.
