I struggled to finish this book because I thought it was really a continuation of The Family Business. I am a huge Carl Weber fan however this book did not do it for me. Bring back the Duncan family not the back story or the prequel!

I really like the story line of this series. My only negative would be the sexual content. If this was a movie on tv it would be a cinemax skin flick! It is not necessary to go into such detail so much!!!!

I was very dissappointed in how this book ended. Even if there is a second book to this story the author could have closed out the stories and picked them back up in the next book. The ending or lack of ruined it for the whole book and the title was very un-fitting. The storyline leading up to the climax was descent and then they just seemingly fell off the cliff and ended it. The book is incomplete and waste of money. You spend all that time listening to this book and then it just ends...I really want my money back!!!

The narration was not good with the horrible southern accents that were not necessary or accurate.

Very disappointing!

Hip-hop artist Tip "T.I." Harris has received every acclaim the music world has to offer. Now, working with bestselling celebrity collaborator David Ritz, T.I. applies all his talent and experience to the world of fiction by creating the epic love story of Power and Beauty. After the death of his mother, Charlotte, Paul “Power” Clay allows himself to be guided by Slim, a local businessman. Slim always has the best of everything, and Power is sure that if he learns Slim's ways, he'll make something of himself - and perhaps be worthy of Tanya “Beauty” Long.

This is a very entertaining read from start to finish. The narrator, story line, and the characters were all good. I was just disturbed at how they ended the story. It is an overall good read and I am happy that the second book is available now.

I could not get past the horrible narrator. He made all the characters seem like they were senior citizens. I did not complete the book. It was that bad for me! Despite the narrator distraction I could not get into the book. Bad listen all around.
