Publisher's Summary

Meet Darryl Graham, or as his new neighbors call him, The Man in 3B.

Darryl's new to the Jamaica, Queens building, but from day one he's made quite an impression on his neighbors. He has made it very clear he greatly values his privacy, but he is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be, so inquiring minds want to know. Unfortunately, in Darryl's world, what you know can hurt you. And when he winds up dead, those inquiring minds become the prime suspects.

Darryl has just moved into a Jamaica, Queens, apartment building and his neighbors, both male and female alike, can't stop talking about him. From his down-to-earth personality to his extreme attractiveness to his undeniable swag, Darryl is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be.

Darryl is quickly welcomed into the building and immediately becomes a part of each of the tenants' lives. Connie, an overweight and unhappy wife, turns to Darryl for help losing weight, hoping to try and fix her crumbling marriage. But when Darryl starts making Connie feel beautiful again, she questions whether or not her marriage is worth saving. Benny, a spoiled teenager, looks up to Darryl as a role model. When an unexpected event occurs, Benny is left questioning everything he's ever known. Krystal, Darryl's first love, wants to make things work with her current boyfriend. Yet having Darryl back in her life sends her happy home spiraling out of control. And, last but not least, Avery, Connie's husband, doesn't care about anyone or anything when a financial opportunity comes his way - that is, until he notices how much time his wife is spending with their new neighbor.

Everything seems to be going well, until someone is murdered, and everyone becomes a prime suspect.

    "AWESOME"
    Would you listen to The Man in 3B again? Why?

    Yes. It was intense, unpredictable, enthralling, fun. I laughed and I held my breath. I could not put it down. I have read several books by this author, this is the best thus far. If you like Webber , you will love this book.


    What other book might you compare The Man in 3B to and why?

    I normally read historical novels so, none. This was a delightful surprise.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Darryl


    If you could take any character from The Man in 3B out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Darryl. He was smart, kind, sensitive, thoughtful lover and a bad ass tug. But you would never know it was so.


    Any additional comments?

    Get this book. FYI The love scenes are HOT HOT HOT without being tacky.

    "So-So Read"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book to a friend. It was not like the previous works (pre-Business series). Parts of the book were predictable.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Not sure. I think the storyline was pretty fair. I was looking forward to a more dynamic story. Perhaps the character of the man in 3B could have been more developed.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrators?

    Yes


    Do you think The Man in 3B needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. I think the author already missed the opportunity to develop the man in 3B's character and therefore the book was fairly predictable.


    Any additional comments?

    I am waiting for the author's next book. I love his earlier works with the guy ensemble series, his Big Girl series, and his church series.

    "Missed the mark"

    There was enough going on in the story to manage to get through to end but the story was mostly flat and unoriginal. And the erotic portion of the book... limp. Although, the story did over achieve bringing forth the ghetto hood, still a waste of time compared to Carl Weber's other books. The narrators did alright with what they had to work with for story material.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Man in 3B to be better than the print version?

    Yes. It's more interesting the book is narrated. Changes in voice give a clearer picture of the characters


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. I loved the way the writer gave detailed descriptions of all of the characters. It seemed as though everyone had a reason to kill Darryl.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narration was good. I'd never heard any o f the narrators
    before.


    If you could take any character from The Man in 3B out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Darryl. He seemed to have the ability to connect with different people on so many different levels. Had he channeled his energy differently, he could have been a great businessman.

    "LOVED IT!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Man in 3B to be better than the print version?

    I have never read the print version, but the narrorators MADE the story for me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is probably Connie, I liked her because no matter what was going on she always kept her mind on what she needed to be doing. Even when her husband was treating her badly she still was doing everything in her power to try to save her marriage, and she didn't let him break her spirit.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think I have listened to anything else read by them.


    If you could rename The Man in 3B, what would you call it?

    I think that title fits the story well.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to another book by Carl Weber which I really disliked, and said I wasn't going to listen to anything else of his. But this book kept coming up in my recommendations so I decided to give it a try. I am so glad I decided to listen to this title, I would say it ranks up there as one of my favorites.
