Publisher's Summary

Carl Weber is the New York Times best-selling author of Baby Momma Drama and Player Haters. To be a member of the Big Girls Book Club, there's just one requirement: be a size 14 - at least.

Tammy, Egypt, Isis, Nikki, Coco, and Tiny are six voluptuous, feisty girlfriends who love a good book almost as much as they enjoy a good man. BGBC president Tammy is cooking up the perfect birthday present for husband Tim, but its success is totally dependent on her best friend Egypt's willingness to get frisky with them. Isis, meanwhile, has got two men competing for her affections - unlike Nikki, who's willing to do anything (with her roommate Tiny's help) to win her ex back. But none are getting more attention in the bedroom than Coco Brown, a married man-chasing gold digger who meets her match in a gigolo.

very entertaining....except....

ok.. this story was really believable and i really enjoyed it.. but the Narrator for ISIS made me cringe.. OMG.. her throaty swallows between pauses was soooo annoying.. i had to pull out my earphones a couple of times.. gross.. anywho the others were fab..especially Tammy. loved Carl Weber's interpretation of REAL WOMEN. Great listen.. if you can stand the Isis narrator. Will definitely listen to more by Mr. Weber!

Great read

OMG. Carl Weber did it again. This book was really good. Initially I didn't know what to expect, but it didn't take long to draw me into each of their unique characters, I hated for it to end.

Narrator for Isis is HORRIBLE. Great book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Narrator for Isis is HORRIBLE. Sounds like mouth is constantly full of spit.Great book though.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

I liked everyone except the narrator for Isis.

Any additional comments?

Whoever narrated Isis' character shouldn't narrate books. Great book though. Love Carl Weber.

Great Book but a couple of the narrators bothered me

I Loved the book but the narrator for Isis(Shari) and the narrator for Tammy (Patricia) irked my soul!!! Patricia not too much but Shari must have a really dry throat because all of the swallowing and throat sounds were grossing me out. It was incessant. I would pull my earphones out and get irritated when the Isis chapters would come. Other than that I really enjoyed the story.

Hated it!

Any additional comments?

This was my first Carl Weber book and that's my only disclaimer. With that, I hated this book. I read a slew of positive reviews and I thought this would be a good listen. By the third chapter I wanted to gouge my ears out. The voicing was fine. The characters were not. The motivations to do the things they did, the situations, the dialogue, none of it rang true to me. As a card carrying Black woman, my head is still shaking.

Isis' narrator...ugh!

It was a good listen, but I have to agree with April...the narrator for Isis kept swallowing and all I could think of was SPIT...gross!

I simply loved this book

My fave character was Coco that lady was off the chain. This book was amazing I loved how the author developed the characters and I loved the drama. I can't wait to read the next book by this author.
