    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.

    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.

    Story

    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.

    Ashley Antoinette, of the Ashley & JaQuavis writing duo, steps out on her own once again with the next installment of her scandalously sexy Prada Plan series! When you've been labeled crazy all of your life, it's easy to commit a murder, and now street fiction's most infamous bad girl, Leah Richards, holds the fate of an entire family in her hands. After coming insecond place to YaYa in the race to win Indie's affection, Leah decides that enough is enough and kidnaps the loving couple's baby girl.

    Story

    Although I enjoyed this book I found it unbelievable only because so much happens at the beginning and all the way to the end. Leah is a bad seed and I now understand her thought pattern and the reason why she is truly crazy and out to get Disaya. This book should have been named Prada Plan 2 a bad seed knows all evil. Leah is insane but yet so crafty and conniving. All this to destroy Disaya but at the end of the day only the best will survive and she will get the family she fought so hard to have. I am a Disaya fan from jump, she sounds weak in the beginning but eventually she gets on her game in order for her to survive. Just bought PP3 and can't wait to unveil the next part of this story.

    New York Times best-selling authors Ashley and JaQuavis have returned with the much-anticipated final installment in the epic Murderville series. Taking up where the previous book left off, we're thrown back into the international street chronicle. Lives and money are on the line, and tough choices will have to be made between love and loyalty. In the final installment of this breath-taking trilogy, the characters will have to learn that, in this game of power, sometimes you have to give up the glory to survive.

    Story

    oh how I had been waiting to get this book and I wasn't let down. It starts where the last book leaves off with Dahlia trying to control her own empire and become the Boss Bitch at every turn. I realized that the power Dahlia wanted to get was never enough for her. She always wanted more to the point she became obsessed. I was excited to see Liberty handle her business and not let her heart control her mind. Only the strong will survive and a person from the past pops up and becomes part of the rise of some and fall of others. I loved the whole murderville series and will continue to support the audio and paperback of such great authors. Good job Ashley and Jaquavis you got a true fan of your work.

    What I liked about this book is how Miasha captures you with the true emotions of the character who sets the stage for the book. When I first saw the title I thought that the book would be trash but I was surprised. My attention was captured from the very beginning. This book also teaches you about loyalty and how being loyal to the wrong people will mess you up. The narrator did a great job and I would suggest this book to anyone looking for a urban fiction that will keep you wanting to unfold this story.

    Carl Weber did it again...all I can say is that I can't wait for the next book. This book was filled with drama. I loved every bit of the book. Paris is still the same and still my favorite I love her true brat daddy's little girl personality. What I liked most about the book is that it introduces new characters and you get to know some characters you only heard about who were silent characters in the first book and their roles in the family business. All the characters were brought to life by the performers and you either love them or hate them. Anyone who enjoys Carl Weber reads will enjoy this and will be waiting for the next installment.

    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.

    Story

    I enjoyed the first book but this one was pretty good too and answered a lot of my questions that I needed answered and at the end you get to find out who the baby daddy is.  Loretta got on my nerves in this book though her love for Chicago comes full force and she feels like she is the wife which is where the last book ends.  That Damn Granville is still cray cray though and in love with Madison and waiting for the baby to come so he can do his fatherly duties and live and marry Madison. But can he do it from behind bars and will Madison accept him?  Which one do you think is the daddy CHICAGO or GRANVILLE? Guess you have to read in order to find out.  One thing I learned is that you can be in love with someone but don’t let that person keep a hold on you that makes you disrespect your expectation set for the one you love.  Forgiveness is something you have to truly earn and you only deserve that if you are truly remorseful and it will take time to get it.  This was a good read and the Narrator was very strong and keeps you interested.  Good job HoneyB!

    Story

    Let me just say this book had me at the edge of my seat.  I was like OMG what’s going to happen next? Can it get any worse or is everything going to work out for Disaya?  I love Ashley Antoinette's story that she spins in your mind.  The narrator was phenomenal and the characters have been formed to make you love, hate or feel for them. The character that had my mind going was Mona and her reality check. I like the way that the people in the story connect from the past to the present. The scheming and plotting throughout the book is a little unbelievable but regardless it's what makes the story grab you and keeps you engaged and wanting to read on.  I can't wait to read PRADA PLAN 2 which I think will be like hearing the psychopath’s story.  Remember there are three sides to every story with the final story being the truth usually.  LOVE THIS READ!
