LIFE just happens that way sometimes!
I liked this book it was very suspenseful and helped me understand how Paris become the bad chick that we know her to be in other books. I love her loyalty to her family and you can tell she has always been loyal to her family even in the midst of her being in love. She is still a super freak and willing to do what she has to do to get the job done. The narrator brought life and emotion to this book. I was able to feel the suspense and fight in the words that were used and this author duo worked together very well. I will give this book two thumbs up and will continue to read Carl Weber and Eric Pete books. I am still amazed that Paris found love.
The ending was so good, it made the first few painful hours worth it. It seemed the story dragged on about nothing for the first few chapters with some action thrown in here and there. Eventually, it picked up. I love Carl Weber's twists.
Yes, I usually love Carl Weber's books from cover to cover. Also, the first two Family Business books were awesome.
I think the narrator who read for Rio sounded older than the character, but they all did well.
I really enjoyed reading this book because I got a lot of insight into who Paris was. I have grown to love her as a character which was something I definitely didn't expect. I also LOVED and still solve Niles. My only problem was that I really can't justify why Paris could not come clean to Niles, I mean they were practically engaged! She was even thinking about introducing him to the family and having him work on their team just like what London did with Harris!
It just doesn't make sense to me...
And the other thing was that this story started off with "now" and then went to "then" but never came back to now again! Now we know that's against the rules...
The pace of the story is what I enjoyed most.
I did not have a favorite character; they each added to building the story.
I was not familiar with this author.
I actually had to take it in doses... I was taken a bit back by the cussing, it was a bit harsh at times and not always necessary to build upon the story. But I did listen until the end.
Not for one with sensitive ears.
Now I'll be the first to say that I love all things Carl Weber. However this book missed the mark, primarily because of the ending. I thought it was interesting to get a look at Paris and Rio before they became fierce divas. However I didn't really learn anything new. Deducted points because the book didn't end the way it started. I hated that!!
Never live your life by committee...
I would rank this book in the, (break glass in case of an emergency), category. It's an ok book if you have nothing else to get you through the day. I mean, I actually finished the book but the plot coupled with Paris character from the Family Business just didn't seem to match.
I would have had more direct interaction between Paris and Naida.
Sex isn't good, unless you fight over it...
It you don't like...change it!
First of all….Carl Weber, I love him…I don't think I have ever read anything by him that was not good. Since meeting the Duncan in Family Business & Family Business II, I have been a fan of Miss Paris. So have a book about her and drama crazy life, was perfect if you ask me. I was a little shock how it end….cause I was thinking it was going in a different direction, either way, I enjoyed it. Looking forward to the next one.
After reading all the family business books, this really give you an up close to why Paris is who she is and why she does the things that she does.
Paris of course. Even though she is a trained assassin she's, sexy and powerful all in one!
The very man she will always love....I know why she had too...you have to listen or read the book to see what really happens that changes Paris life forever....
