    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 consider the audio edition of The Man in 3B to be better than the print version?

    Yes

    the way in which the narrator was able to give each character its own voice that sounded so close to what I heard in my head.

    Yes, yes, yes


    Any additional comments?


    Carl Weber, a masterful weaver of words, plots and unforgettable characters. Do not try to compare this writer to any of the rest he is truly in a league of his own. His book will leave you wanting more, just when you think you have him figured out he goes and flips the script on you real quick. In this book, one of his best to date, he will have you so engrossed that you will leave dinner burning and forget to go to sleep for work tomorrow He has unforgettable characters, a realistic plot anda sexy man that is to die for. I will not tell you more except read this book. It is exemplary work..

    If you are one of those who thinks that church is boring and you only go because you were dragged as a child then you obviously have not read the work of Kimberla Lawson roby. She will hav you in church every Sunday in the front row so you don’t miss any of the action. While you are there you can’t help but feel the Lord as well from the powerful delivery of the word through the infamous Curtis black. The drama that this Revern gets involved in will put soap operas to shame. If you read this book first without reading the whole series first you can not truly appreciate what happens in this story. While this book can stand onits own you won’t get the full effects without reading its predecessors

    With smoking hot hits like Lies Lovers Tell and What Love Tastes Like to her credit, Zuri Day has built a considerable fanbase for her scorching contemporary romances.

    Carl Weber is a recipient of the Blackboard Bookseller of the Year Award. Married Men is a fresh and funny take on modern love that has been described as Waiting to Exhale on testosterone. Lifelong friends Kyle, Allen, Wil, and Jay all make mistakes in their marriages-and all get kicked to the curb by their wives. What follows is a wild ride with stops in sleazy hotels, divorce court, and even jail. In their adventure, fueled by Viagra® and lovely young ladies, the four men always have each other to lean on.

    What made the experience of listening to Married Men the most enjoyable?

    The narrators.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I axctually buy books based on the narrator. They always do a good job.


    If you could take any character from Married Men out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would love to take Jay just to give him a dose of his own medicine.


    Any additional comments?

    Carl Weber is a masterful storyteller. I know ths book is quite hold but it is still revelant today. He wrote each story with such precision and he gave what you wanted and more. I love him and how he tells a story and make sure each character has an ending that is true to who they are. It's a must read.

    Amanda is bored with life. She spends hours a day on Facebook, her parents act like they are too ancient to enjoy life any longer, and her military husband, Ralph, is deployed to Afghanistan. Gideon is not totally content at home either. His wife, Nina, is a lifetime overachiever and a workaholic. She has moved her mother into their home so she can have a live-in sitter, and Gideon has fallen to the bottom of her priority list.

    Zane is a phenomenal writer who leaves you on the edge of your seat and wanting more. She in this story put tears in my eyes because it was not what I was expecting at all. It is truly an hour I am glad that I took out of my day to read this short but powerful piece of literary work. Thank you Zane. You are phenomenal.

But head resident Lucien De Winter is impossible to resist. And he’s arousing a healthy dose of desire as he wages an all-out war to make the sheltered Southern belle his own. Because Lucien knows that the only thing to cure his acute condition is a lifetime of love.
