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.

It has a middle ranking.It was not amazing but it was pretty interesting and the cliff hanger at the end had me prepared to move on to the second book.
Do not have another book to compare besides the second installment.
Some of them I really liked, like the ones who played Orlando and LC. But others annoyed me like the ones who played London and Paris.
The moment that moved me was when Paris was fighting off the people for her brother Rio. Its like this is the moment when she finally made sense.
The subject matter of this book is compelling. The production quality is very high. The voice actors do a mighty job. This is just pure trash, though. There are very, very few books I give up on, and this now joins that very short list.
The different narrators are good and useful.
The characters and their sociopathic characters.
Orlando / Ruby at first meeting
This would be best suited for a 20 something male who is into action adventure.
This is my first book by Weber and Pete. I think this story just lacked suspence. The killing was so very frequent that it was completely unbelievable. I think they just need to start over. Sorry.
I like how Junior sought out the prostitute Ruby. It was interesting to see him explore his feelings about his 'rules' of life.
Good idea, but didn't work. Situation is interesting, but the characters are wooden, and the plot drags. Quit half way through.
Amazing what people will do for family. This was unreal for me. Has me looking curiously at the car dealerships i see on the streets.
Paris- she was hardy and head strong.
The scenes between Orlando and Ruby always got me laughing.
What we do for family
The twist and turns. Every part connected
It was not predictable
The really got into their characters
This is one book I can listen to several times.
I never in a million years would have guessed that this story would turn out to be about this type of family business. When I finally realized what LC was capable I just had to shake my head, and to raise his children up in this manner, well needless to say, I was shocked.
I would have to say Paris because she just didn't give a care. She was what she was and nobody could do anything about it.
Each narrator was very effective in their performance. I greatly enjoyed each one.
This was the perfect name because they did actually own a family business, it just wasn't the type of business that the average person would know about.
I love me some audio books! My taste ranges from Self Help, Motivational, Success, Fiction, Autobiography, African American, NWO, Business, Religious and more. I will be commenting from time to time and I hope my reviews are helpful!
I pictured every moment of this book! This family was click tight! Powerful and Deadly! You will live this one!
Yes, because of the performances- I loved J.C., and Orlando, and, it took a really special person to read Paris' part!
I think London... I could identify most with her character, similar experiences...
Orlando and Ruby...
Paris and Miguel...
Too many to name
Paris, I think.
I can't wait for the sequel!
