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.

LIFE just happens that way sometimes!
Wow how this story unfolded. I simply love the way the authors played the roles that they were assigned. I didn't really know what to expect but at the end of the book all the scheming that was taking place was brought together very well and each individual family members roll. I didn't expect so much drama and I was waiting to see who the first person in the family business was going to die. This book has some of the best narrators that urban fiction has to offer I love Patricia Floyd and Ezra Knight voices very strong. I would recommend this book to other Carl Weber fans.
Love books on tape! It's all about the narrators for me though. No matter how good the story, if the narrator doesn't cut it...
I love how the book starts one way then ends another. I actually went back and listed to the beginning of the book again...it was so good. It's amazing how the authrs made the characters sound one way come to find out they are another way. (I don't want to give out any info. and ruin it for potential readers/listeners.) I'd give this ten stars!
I love reading and audible is the easiest way to keep up with my voracious appetite for the written word.
Wow! Fast paced and dynamic storyline. I enjoyed the twists and turns of this highly dysfunctional family. Not crazy about the gratuitous sex scenes, but the story kept my attention. Excited to read the next installment.
Love novels, love to laugh.
The positive part of this book is the performance. I enjoyed all of the narrators. And there's a great twist in the story.
However for me, it's difficult to listen when I don't like any of the characters in the book. They are really hateful, antisocial people. The youngest daughter doesn't seem believable at all. Very one dimensional. The family's mother is a bit redeeming. Overall, these are not people I wanted to get to know. I continued to listen, however as I wanted to learn whether what goes around would come around in this tale.
Cannot recommend this one.
I will listen to NO boring book. Old Fav's,Card, King , Hobb. New Fav's, Hill, Scalzi, Sawyer, Interested in Lansdale, Crouch, Konrath
WHY DON'T HE TALK ABOUT SOMETHING IMPORTANT, LIKE WHEN THE HELL HE WAS GOING TO F### THE PU###. HELL, THIS WAS OUR THIRD DATE AND HE HADN'T EVEN SMELLED THE THING.
I know not how these books are not in the erotic section. Expect lots of sex and usually very good sex. I like Weber's writing, I always find his stuff to be entertaining. This is my sixth book by him and there has never been a dull moment in any of them. When this started out I thought it was a Black version of Dallas, it turned into a Black version of The Godfather. In my last review I said I would like him to get away from Jamaica Church. This stars a family that attends that church, but the church is not part of the story. His characters think and act the way real people do and I like that. There are also several twists and turns and surprises in this book.
I did think it was funny, that someone in the family would say they needed to act fast and then they would have a family meeting. I know people like that. Dennis Lehane wrote a great book called The Given Day, which is a historical fiction book about Boston. I would like to see Weber write an historical fiction book about Queens.
Multiple narrators and they are all great. This is a top notch production.
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
MAYBE SOMEONE YOUNGER.
THE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND THE STORY DEVELOPMENT. I LIKE WHEN A STORY UNFOLDS, THIS STORY JUST HAPPENED. AND IT WAS VERY THIN.
THEY WERE GOOD. NO, THEY WERE GREAT.
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.
This book was outstanding! Can't wait for the next release! Had me on the edge the entire time.
I loved the action and the sub plots intertwined in the midst of choas!
My favorite character was Paris. She was a bit oversexed, cocky but I loved her attitude and skills.
The intensity of the situations
Yes. Interesting plot and suspense kept my attention
The duties of the females in the family not revealed until necessary.
There were a lot of favorite scenes for me. Like to leave the other readers curious.
When the father was faced with decision to follow the game rules or his heart
Enjoy this book being read to you. The reader were excellent.
The different narrators are good and useful.
The characters and their sociopathic characters.
