It was the night before his wedding, 15 years ago, when the nightmare began for Jay Crawford - locked up for a crime he never committed. Now he's escaped prison and wants nothing more than to clear his name and protect his family. To get justice,he'll need the help of the three best friends who have always had his back - Wil, Kyle, and Allan. But a man on the run requires absolute trust...and Jay may just be setting himself up for the ultimate betrayal.

Been a Carl Weber fan from Married Men. This book didn't disappoint. I love the way Carl brought back the Men and slid a piece of the Duncans in this book, all while tying up the loose ends from She ain't the one. 10⭐️s

Every city has an underworld leader. In the Kingpin series, we will visit eight cities and ride along with that city's kingpin as he rules the streets. The story starts out in Miami with Nikki Turner and will end with a compilation of all kingpins, written by New York Times best-selling author Carl Weber.

When I saw all three team up for a novel, I just knew it was an automatic classic. I dislike when authors introduce an issue but do not address it in the novel. I thought from the novel's opening Amos gave daddy issues because he had daddy issues.

At thirty, eldest brother Byron hasn't dated seriously in a while--not since he became a single dad to his beloved baby girl. Besides, he's found that most women can't see past his job as a bus driver, and he's not interested in that type of superficial foolishness. When he meets Cynthia Hall, her disinterest is obvious. Still, there's something about her. . .

It was very enjoyable to listen to a story about a man sweeping a woman off her feet and not wealthy. Just making the right choices to make his woman happy without a balling out of control budget.

When I started this book, I was so upset the main character was not standing up for herself! I was that lady in the back of the theater yelling at the screen, "Don't you let her do that!" I was so frustrated, I put it down. I got to thinking, if I'm this emotional about this book, it must be good, lol. So I started back and could put it down! I went through a whole bunch of emotions before I finished (and yes I had a few more yelling at the characters episodes, lol) In all, great book and must read!

The main character was twisted in a love triangle. Her boyfriend twisted in some baby mama, "wifey" drama. The boyfriend's childhood friend was just as twisted with his womanizing and thoughts of being with the main character. Which makes for plenty drama!

For one night a couple checks in to an upscale hotel. The pair seem unlikely companions, from opposing strata of society, but their attraction is palpable to all who observe them - or overhear their cries of passion. In the course of 12 hours, con games, erotic interludes, jealousy, violence, and murder swirl around them. Will they part ways in bliss, in sorrow, or in death?

Too many chapters for the One Night stand. I'm glad I made myself listen pass some of those chapters (with quite a bit of fast forwarding via audible, I did it lol) The ending tied everything together.

Tiffany Richardson went from the bottom to the top in a matter of months, because she stumbled into a job that landed her executive producer and head writer for a hit television series called Boy Crazy. All was well and things were perfect for Tiffany until the day she got the news that her show was going to be cancelled, before going home to catch her man in bed with the hired help.
