Publisher's Summary

Tracie Howard and Danita Carter’s previous joint effort, Revenge Is Best Served Cold, has been praised by Booklist as “consistently compelling”, and Essence proclaims it a “glitzy romp.”

In this tale of secrets and style, a wealthy Wall Street investment banker, Lyle Johnson, seems to have found an ideal business partner in Tess Aventura Dubois. She is a wealthy widow who has just moved back to New York City with enough cash to make his bar a swinging night spot. But behind her glamorous facade, lays a disturbing secret that could be Lyle’s downfall.

Earlicious!

It is so refreshing to finally hear a good book. Everything about this book was superb -- from the character development, plot twists, storyline and suspense. And on top of all that, I got to enjoy Ezra Knight's sexy voice for hours at a time. All good things must come to an end, but I anxiously await another book by the authors. Bravo!

Captivating

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

Yes. The story had a lot of drama in it. The author gave a good profile of each character so that it was easy to relate to them - even if you didn't like them.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Success Is the Best Revenge?

Tess Aventura Dubois' rise and fall.

Have you listened to any of Ezra Knight’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Great as usual. He is such a good narrator that I sometimes search for books under his name.

If you could rename Success Is the Best Revenge, what would you call it?

Now the tables turn.
