Publisher's Summary

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

    Story
    "NO SUBSTANCE HERE. POOR CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    MAYBE SOMEONE YOUNGER.


    What was most disappointing about Carl Weber and Eric Pete ’s story?

    THE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND THE STORY DEVELOPMENT. I LIKE WHEN A STORY UNFOLDS, THIS STORY JUST HAPPENED. AND IT WAS VERY THIN.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    THEY WERE GOOD. NO, THEY WERE GREAT.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    THE NARRATORS WERE GOOD. IT COULD HAVE BEEN A GOOD STORY IF THEY JUST DEVELOPED IT BETTER. I LIKE TO KNOW ALL THE MAIN CHARACTERS. I FELT LIKE I ONLY KNEW ANY OF THEM THRU THE CONVERSATIONS THEY HAD WITH EACH OTHER.

    "The narrators bring the book to life!"

    Carl Weber has the knack for telling a story as if everything is normal until BANG!!! they sell drugs in the car. Wow! The book flows well. Each character is introduced and background and personality given so you can say "Paris would say that". Read each book twice now because it is that good

    Story
    "A Good Story for the Bad Guys"

    I found this book quite entertaining. The story unfolds bit by bit. I love the way the author gives you many sides of the same scene. it reminds me of the movie Vantage Point.

    The characters are easy to hate. Usual a book makes you want to fall in love with the characters, but this does the opposite but in a good way. He creates a group of characters you love to hate. Through out the book, I was hoping for someone to slap Paris, punch Harris, and kill Tony. If a book makes you feel strongly enough to hate it's characters then it's a good start to keep you reading the series just to see them get what they deserve.

    Now that narration for this book was not so good. Orlando was suppose to date women with foreign accents but they all sounded the same. At one point he is with an Asian women who sounded Jamaican. When he stated she was Asian, I burst out laughing. I played it for my fiance and he stated she sounded Jamaican too. The other narrators struggled wit sounding like the opposite sex. The lady who voices London does the best job, but Paris and the men really struggled with adjusting their sound.

    Overall this book was worth my credit and I've already bought the next.
