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.

The narrators had my attention since page one. I literally finished this book in 2 days because I kept wanting to know what happened. Twists and turns all throughout. Good read!
Turned Up 4 God
Loved the voice of Crystal, she was so enthusiastic, never would have guessed she was an crack addict. Also Loved the Stoop gossip! It was funny how all the women Loved Darryl and how all the men started to hate him. Kept thinking Darryl was too good to be true. Very Twisted ending! Carl Weber has me hooked. Started reading him with the Choir Director. Now I have already downloaded my next book Married Men...
I liked this book and had read it before and when I found out the movie was soon to be released I wanted to re-read it. To my dismay, I couldn't find my book. No problem I went on audible and there it was. Problem solved. Great read, fun characters.
The story line was interesting but the characters had no depth with the exception of Connie. You either lived them or hated -- kind of like the characters in a Tyler Perry movie.
