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.

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.
I normally read historical novels so, none. This was a delightful surprise.
Darryl. He was smart, kind, sensitive, thoughtful lover and a bad ass tug. But you would never know it was so.
Get this book. FYI The love scenes are HOT HOT HOT without being tacky.
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.
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.
No. I think the author already missed the opportunity to develop the man in 3B's character and therefore the book was fairly predictable.
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.
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.
Addicted to Audible!
Yes. It's more interesting the book is narrated. Changes in voice give a clearer picture of the characters
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.
The narration was good. I'd never heard any o f the narrators
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.
Because of the gossip it would be in the top 10
Benny, b/c of challenges with his friendship and finding himself.
Each one gave life to their character and the man in 3B
I have never read the print version, but the narrorators MADE the story for me.
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.
I don't think I have listened to anything else read by them.
I think that title fits the story well.
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.
The different twist and turns kept you wanting to here more
Daryl, because he kept surprising you as the man in 3B
They made the book come a live with each charachter
Yes when Daryl made Connie know that she was worth more than she knew.
Read/listen to the book
Yes..ladies if you want to laugh at yourselves and see your friends for who they really are and what they really say as you pass the stoop, watercooler or where ever..grab this one.
Oh yes..I just knew that brat of a daughter did it with her no good boyfriend...I was wrong..haha
The voices made it more real..in my head they all sound alike.
All the women..we never see how we look from the outside in when we get wrapped up in a man...this book surly puts it in your face..ha ha. He's just a man ladies.
Both audio and paper back books are pretty good, I am always on the go, and the audio helps out with desk work. However, its nice to sit down and read a good book.
Connie and the apartment News crew....giggLes
The news crew
YES!! Most def
Kept my interest for all 9 hours!
The epilouge tied everything together and I loved loved loved the ending
There tones and expressions were perfect. I could just see it all play out. Their voices were all different so it was easy to tell who what talking and to not get confused.
The ending was AWESOME....Made me very happy
