Following their parents' death, Cobi searches for and finds his brother, hoping to regain lost years. Meanwhile, Cobi navigates the pressures of society as he lives life in the closet.

Publisher's Summary

The untimely passing of the beloved New York Times best-selling author E. Lynn Harris has left fans pining for more. With this collaboration, fans are given the book they've been clamoring to read - and the book that Harris and Essence best-selling author R. M. Johnson long wanted to write.

Cobi Winslow, a handsome, well-educated district attorney, knows nothing about the life of his estranged twin brother, Eric Reed, a career criminal raised in the foster-care system. Following their parents' death, Cobi searches for and finds his brother, hoping to regain lost years.

Meanwhile, Cobi navigates the pressures of society as he lives life in the closet. The stress comes to a head when he learns that, in order to inherit the wealth of his father's estate and save the struggling family business, he must marry a woman before he turns 35. The task becomes more convoluted when Cobi's sister proposes to pay Austen Greer, a once-successful and wealthy businesswoman who lost everything in the recession, to be Cobi's wife.

Eric discovers Cobi is gay and promises to keep it a secret. Instead, he entrusts the information to his former prison cellmate, Blac, who endears himself to Cobi in hopes of securing a $150,000 loan from him to pay back a debt racked up by cocaine sales. As the clock runs down both on Blac's efforts to pay his deadly creditor and on Cobi's attempts to save the family company, rash moves are executed, family and friendship bonds are tested, and life-altering sacrifices are made.

    I am a retired Army veteran and love to read. I like murder mystery, but enjoy nonfiction. I am a long time Star Trek fan.

    Story
    "No one in the World was entertaining."
    Would you listen to No One in the World again? Why?

    No. It was entertaining yet predictable.


    If you???ve listened to books by E. Lynn Harris and R. M. Johnson before, how does this one compare?

    I have not listened to R.M. Johnson's books before, but all E. Lynn Harris. I recognized some of the charactors from previous books. This was a mild E. Lynn Harris.


    What three words best describe Alan Bomar Jones???s voice?

    Nice and soothing


    If you could take any character from No One in the World out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Neither

    "AWESoMe - 2 great authors knock it out the PARK!"

    Nothing is as expected, but it all happens so intensely. The character development is phenomenal. I felt like a fly on the wall in the life of.... And the narrator was superb. I am looking for more books by the author and the narrator.

    "Good Story"

    I liked the story and it kept my interest, but didn't care too much for the narrator...should have let a professional reader do it. This may have been a better book to read. The sister wasn't a believable character and for someone so righteous, I found it hard to believe she would expect her brother to deny who he was to help her with financial gain.

    The ending left you for wanting more and left too many unanswered questions. Good effort though.
