Carl Weber is the New York Times best-selling author of such bawdy, riotous novels as So You Call Yourself a Man and Baby Momma Drama. In Up to No Good, Weber demonstrates his storytelling panache and keen insight into his characters' complicated lives.

This was a good listen if you read First Lady and remember the Bishop friend James Black who is a ladies man which continues in this book, with his daughter and son who both have much drama going on in their lives..It started out kind of slow but did it pick up I couldn't stop listening.
this was the third book of a the series starting with Preachers Son. I think I enjoyed this one the most. I was really surprised with the ending.

"Up to No Good" by Carl Weber...
There is always a man around the corner. Church trustee James Black should know--he's usually that man, carrying on adulterous affairs and sleeping with one conquest after another. But when he suddenly finds himself truly in love, the other women in his church have a thing or two to say about it--including his daughter, Jamie.
Jamie has every intention of dismantling the relationship--until she discovers a mystery woman has been secretly calling her lover, Louis. Meanwhile, James's son, Darnel, spirals out of control after he catches his fiancée cheating. James knows he's to blame for the turmoil that surrounds him and his loved ones. Now he'll have to find a way to bring peace to their lives. But he can only do it by facing some hard truths about himself and changing his scandalous ways.
What I liked from the novel.....
This was another one of this author good reads. "Up to No Good" was definitely one of this author types of drama novels that will keep you on the edge of your seat with a lot of drama and suspense and leave you wondering what will come next. You will be left saying 'what a story' that was a little predictable but yet not disappointing in any way with some characters that were simply off the chart. Some of the characters were greatly flawed while a few others were simply well developed, engaging and oh so real to give the readers a simply good character development with a excellent subplots along with a unforgettable story line. The ending will definitely leave thinking just how far would you go to help out a blood relative. That ending left me in awe...because even though I know that person had a lots of demons and definitely needed help....I never thought that would happen. I am still shaking my head about that ending. All that is left to say is wow what a interesting intensed read that still I have thoughts about long after this read. If you are looking for drama with a lots of pain and craziness you have come to the right place for "Up to No Good" will give it all to you and more!
This book was more predictable but still enjoyable.
I pretty much predicted the ending especially with James and his son. His son was kind of crazy!
When James recognized Sonya was a gold-digger. Glad that he was hurt like he hurt other woman.
James. I admire his honesty even though he was a "man-whore" but he was honest about it. A lot of the reasons why James' children was so crazy and had difficulties trusting others in relationships is because of his behavior toward women. It's no wonder his son went nuts!
Emotion and emphasis and greatness!!!
Jaime, she was too much and in the end she calmed down with all her accusations.
Great book would recommend to all!!!
this was my 1st book in this series and it was awesome. i will be purchasing more.
when James' son found his fiance in bed with his best friend
my favorite character was James
i did listen to it in one setting. couldn't put it down.
When the other woman was revealed!
Trustee James Black, he opened up his heart to love and fell in with both feet.
When Crystal found out about the competition, the one with the training wheels. I fell the hell out when I heard that. This dude (the reader and the writer) is awesome!
I wouldn't change a thing!
The narrator made this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be listening to it again real soon.
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
This is my least favorite book from this author.I found Darnel's story to be unbelievable and him a complete wimp; Jamie was a drama queen and I found myself skipping through her sections. As for James Black; I could see his storyline a mile away. This book was way to predictable and not at all what I expect from this author.
