    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.

    What did you love best about The Family Business?

    I loved the action and the sub plots intertwined in the midst of choas!

    My favorite character was Paris. She was a bit oversexed, cocky but I loved her attitude and skills.


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

    The intensity of the situations

    Growing up poor in Texas, Vera Lomax used every gold-digging trick in the book to land a rich husband. Now living in the lap of luxury in San Francisco, her only job is to fawn over her much-older husband, so it's been easy for her to balance a life of shopping and affairs with younger men with a major secret: the 16-year bribery of one of her husband's mistresses to keep her pregnancy under wraps. Vera figures that a little hush money every month will ensure her husband's fortune is hers alone....

    Story

    I love this these books! Sophie always manages to get herself in some kind of trouble. But with her sass and wit, and Mr Cat, she seems to solve each case! Sophie's friends and her boyfriend always add to the comic relief. Her ethnic combination of Jewish and African American is a hilarious combination at times.
    The narrator Gabra Zackman is awesome! You can't go wrong with any of Kyra's titles

    Three years after narrowly escaping a one way trip to the gas chamber, the fugitive known only as Animal finds himself drawn back to the scene of the crime: Harlem. Throughout his entire time in exile, the only thing that kept Animal going was the thought that he would one day be reunited with his soul mate, Gucci - but one bullet changed everything. When his enemies tried to murder Gucci, they crossed the line, so he vowed to cross them all.

    Story

    I don't normally read this type of urban fiction, but a fellow author friend mentioned he was reading this title so I took a chance. I'm glad I did! This was action packed all the way til the end. I hated that it ended, leaving me hanging on the edge to see what would happen next. The story line kept me engrossed and the interactions between the characters was excellent. Cary Hite, who read the story was excellent! He made the dialect of each character believable. I'd be intrested in listening to him again.
    Looking forward to part two

    Story

    The Aftermath picks up where Snapped left off. The same characters are there, but the drama is still unfolding. This title took me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions, while interesting and drama filled,it left me tettering on the edge waiting to find out about some situations and characters.
    I believe it leaves room for a part 3. This story was narrated Allyson Johnson, and her voice will pretty good lacked in some parts for me. Not quite conveying the level of intensity in some areas. Otherwise it worked well.
