Marcus Major, author of the Blackboard best-seller Good Peoples, crafts this fun, stylish and delightfully perceptive tale of four best friends, an oath - and one very special young woman. Colin, Dexter, Ibn, and Michael have been inseparable since college. Besides sharing similar interests, they have someone very important in common - Erika. Erika is the little sister of a friend who died, and they’ve promised to watch out for her. But when Erika grows up into a very attractive woman, it proves increasingly difficult for the guys to ignore their changing feelings for her.
Narrator Ezra Knight gives the listener a front row seat as the group’s dynamic is disturbed by Erika’s new relationship and each friend is forced to re-evaluate the way he treats the women in his life.

"Major, unlike many of his fellow writers, is careful to pepper his melodrama with thoughtful discussions of serious contemporary social issues such as unwanted pregnancies and parental responsibility, making his points without excessive preaching." (Publishers Weekly)
yes i would it was surprisingly good. I would recommend it because it had drama, love, and laughing moments.
when mike finally realized he was in love with erica
I don't know i love his voice !
i'm not sure
As usual it's a joy to listen to Ezra Knight. The relationship the friends had with one another is special. Thou they really needed to allow Erika to grow up. Ibn is a riot by himself. I would give this four stars.
I was disappointed with the book. The characters were not very believable. I am not African American; I really hope that this is not a realistic portrayal of professional/affluent African Americans.
