A Man's World Novel

Can four guys find love in New York City?

Kevin left behind a chance at the NBA to coach delinquents, but his toughest assignment is finding a girl who won't make his mama's church group fall into praying mode. . .A teacher and a poet, Antoine can make a sister feel beautiful—or want to beat him with a blow dryer. . .Tyrone has talent, attitude, and a crush on his boss's wife. . .And Maurice is all that, if that means rude, arrogant, and dishonest.

Kevin's got the looks. Antoine's got heart and soul. Tyrone's got the skills. And Maurice has player moves. They got it all, except for the one thing that matters most—the love of a good woman. What they find when they try a dating service is a riotous trip through religious freaks, hootchie mamas, chicken heads, gold diggers, and some serious Brides of Funkenstein. One thing's for certain—when you play the game of love, you've got to be ready for anything.

Editorial Reviews

Black Issue Book Review
Some advice to the lovelorn: Be really careful of them 900 numbers. The three protagonists in Carl Weber’s obnoxiously funny novel could have used that advice, but then we would have missed out on a truly entertaining read....

This was my first Weber book and It wont be my last. I was so mad at Maurice that I wanted to hunt him down and stab him in the heart(just kidding). It is sad that there are real men out there that pray on women like that. But good thing there is ALWAYS karma. Loved the book from start to finish!

GO get this book Now! Hard to put down,crazy,real and funny all mixed into one.Denise and Maurice were the deranged ones. I'm glad Antoine,Tyrone and Kevin careers went the way they wanted it to go! Carl threw me for a couple of twists that I did not see coming. Very good Carl. This was my 1st book I read and yes I will continue to buy his books.

I have been avoiding this book for the longest. It was a good book and I enjoyed it till the end. The ending was great and I was waiting on Denise to get her behind whooped ! She was a hot mess.

I read this book non stop for to straight days. It was that good. Not only did Weber create three hilarious characters he developed interesting plots with enough drama to keep you hooked to the end. Eric Jerome Dickey has a competitor on the horizon.

Lookin for luv is a great book. I read this book in 3 days and baby momma drama in only one. Weber's stories will get you hooked in all of the drama that the characters get in. His books are awesome but that's what you can only expect from someone who went to college in virginia. VA REPRESENT!!!!!

I read this book in 2 days. I felt for Syl and Alicia so many women suffer from the same mental and physical abuse. Denise and Maurice got just what they deserved....

I'm a very avid reader of most african american novels. My first novel frm Carl was Baby Momma Drama, which was full of much Drama. I then became an instant fan. This book was by far filled with twist and turns and much entertainment that it's hard to put down. I recommend this to anyone who loves reading much 'drama' There is a much surprise at the end which I'm not going to give it away just pick up the book and ENJOY!

This book kept me on my toes the whole time. I could not put it down. The twists and turns were crazy, I can usually figure out certain things out but this book was very surprising. I definitely recommend it, the only thing I would say is the ending is rather fairy tale ish, all the characters end up happy with their girlfriends and financially well off. I actually liked the book because it centered on working class African Americans but at the end they all were financially well off or on their way to that. But do not get me wrong the book was GREAT!! Kudos to Webber
