In his typical jaw-dropping fashion, Carl Weber returns with part two of his New York Times best-selling Family Business series. He's brought along a friend in best-selling author Treasure Hernandez, and together they've added more drama and new family members to the world of the Duncans. By day they are upstanding citizens running one of New York's most respected car dealerships; but by night, they're criminals who control most of the East Coast drug traffic. No matter whether they're on their day or night jobs, one thing is true about the Duncans: there is never a dull moment to be found.
Momma drama takes over the Duncan clan, as there is still uncertainty about who has fathered the Duncan sisters' new babies. Meanwhile, Orlando Duncan, the family's new CEO and a man with his own baby momma problems, has just developed a new product that may make the millionaire Duncans into billionaires. Orlando only has one obstacle in front of him, and it's not law enforcement or one of his family's many rivals. It's his mother, and she may be his most formidable opponent to date, because she's making the family take sides. Can a civil war within the Duncan family be averted before it tears them apart?

I didn't read the print version
The coldest Winter Ever
The varying voices are entertaining to say the least and help sets the stage for this family's business.
I didn't like when the Duncan children used wildly insane profanity in front of their mom and little grand kids. Very unrealistic in a black household.
Never live your life by committee...
The ruthlessness of a family, who could at times seem out of control, but control was what it was all about... Also the different narrators were on point with every emotion throughout the story, pulling you in so deep you'll think you were standing right there...
The introduction of Sasha, she was a beast... The only one who could rival Paris, and if you're familiar with the Family Business, you KNOW, Paris don't play...
Dinner time... Nothing like a home cooked meal with family... (old and new)
The Family Business Series is a must have...
I could listen in the car, at my desk, working out, and while cooking dinner, there was no situation that I could not put my ear piece in and let it go..
The narrators made me think I could actually visualize the characters.
I read the first book in the series when I was working in American Samoa, so it was quite fitting that I picked up this book during my next visit to American Samoa about a month ago.
This book does not disappoint, it rockets through the fast paced plotline, and I found myself sitting in the car for an extra ten minutes to finish a chapter, only to want "just a bit more" of the next chapter.
Paris, going to pick up "to Paris with love" to explore this character some more. She is one character that is just right.
Missed in this book:
Orlando's women, spent to much time having baby momma drama with the Haitian woman.
London was very undervalued in this book, not much going on with her at all, other than annoying Paris.
Worst part of the Book:
LC taking a significant lessor role in the organization, but still "pulling the strings" from time to time. If we want LC to go away, then make him go away, but don't do this "semi-retired" thing, it's annoying.
Enjoyed this book even tho it had a couple or three/four gaping holes, plus the ending left a great big hole for FB #3. I think part of the ending was probably a compromise between the two authors.... I gave it three stars for "Overall" instead of four stars mainly because in a scene near the end, Paris and Sasha are holding a petty argument in between shooting bad guys on the outside of the house while on the inside of the house other bad guys are threatening to kill their family members. Who has time to argue about petty jealousies when the bad guys are about to kill your family members?? And, these two ladies are the only ones with guns to save the day!? who does that? That was the most ridiculous scene in the entire novel while some of the other "funny" scenes were nevertheless entertaining. I am glad I listened, but less entertained than the "Man in 3B". The narrators were very good.
Love reading Carl Weber's books. The plots are tightly woven, building the interest to its peak. As the author brings the reader down, he does it with such smoothness. I find myself wanting to read his books more and more. Yes, I highly recommend this book
Similar authors which leaves one entranced is Patterson. I just finished reading "Paris With Love" and found that the ride was well worth it. Jonathan and Faye Kellerman's books do the same as does JR Ward.
Niles, Paris, and Rio were my favorites although all of the family portrayals were good.
Yes, such a love story between Niles and Paris. I felt Paris' excitement and pain right up to the end. Also the loyalty angle to the family's other business was very mysterious yet unsetteling.
Well, I probably missed the story of Paris and her baby's father (The Family Business by Carl Weber)...I would like to think it was Niles but I don't recall it being mentioned...I remember that Paris and London (her sister) were pregnant at the same time. I would like to listen to how LC and his wife got together along with stores about the rest of the family, they're encounters and how they fit into the "family business."
There are quite a few twists and turns. It kept me interested. The narration was good and it was nice to get back to the characters. Nice job - can't wait for the next one.
Audiobook-aholic and Podcast junky! An earbud is attached to my ear throughout my workday and when I'm working out! I admit, sometimes feel a little bit of guilt that I have easy access to enthralling, thought-provoking, and entertaining material that my circle of friends haven't discovered.
Sasha, Duhhhhh... She was a cold piece!
Every scene where Sasha put in "work"!
I hope the last book in this trilogy flash back to the building of the family especially Vegas's history.
I would definitely listen to this story again because there was never a dull moment. I listened to this book while my book club members read the book. So when comments were asked and answered, I would give my answers in the voices with which certain characters were used in the book and my book club members truly enjoyed my comments. A couple of ladies downloaded the book during the meeting. I just love it. I can't wait to find out what our next book will be so I can search for it on Audible.Com.
The narrator's were great. They were so life like, it was incredible.
Paris - she was a hot mess!!
I think that the best part about The Family Business 2 is that you really see how Bad Ass the entire family is, including the Mom and the Cousin.
I actually have not read a book that I can think of like the Family Business 2 besides the Family Business 1. I can not wait until the 3rd book because I have a lot of questions that I need answers for.
My favorite scene is when Sasha and Paris work together to take down the people who broke into their house.
The family that gives a new meaning to "Ride or Die".
I like how this audiobook had different people play different voices. I must admit that Ruby's voice and Paris's voice was annoying a little bit. There just not enough real in it. My favorite narrator is in this book which is Diana Luke who played Sasha.
