Overview

The acclaimed, national bestselling author of such smart, sexy novels as The Preacher's Son and Player Haters returns with a tale of three lifelong best friends. . .

James Robinson and his wife, Cathy, have had their rough patches. But seven years into their marriage, things are better than ever until the past catches up. During a rocky period, James hooked up with a woman on his UPS route, and the fling has come back to haunt him--with a baby in tow.

James's best friend, Brent Williams, is a fine brother who has always had women throwing themselves at him, but it's taken Brent a while to find someone who wants him for the man he is on the inside. His fiancée, plus-sized beauty Alison Jones, isn't his usual type, but they seem like a match made in heaven--until a sexy third party comes along. . .

Ever since he moved to Seattle, Sonny Harrison has missed his friends in New York. But that's going to change now that James has gotten him a job at UPS. But when Sonny tells his wife, she sends him packing. Sonny's heartbroken until he reunites with his high school sweetheart, Tiffany. But Tiffany finds his quick devotion suffocating--and scary. Brent and James may be the only ones who can intervene. But will that mean losing their friend forever?

Includes a teaser for Carl's newest novel, The First Lady.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A raucous "desperate husbands" story line-co-starring crazy baby mamas, shady churchgoers and various deranged personalities-ups the conflict quotient significantly in Weber's latest (Baby Mamma Drama, The Preacher's Son, etc.). In signature Weber style, alternating first-person chapters follow the troubled, Catch-22 lives of best-of-friends trio James Robinson, Brent Williams and Sonny Harrison. Within the first five pages, James's marriage is in jeopardy when Michelle, an ex-flame (and Trent's former girlfriend from Player Haters), reappears with a love child that she claims is his. Gorgeous Brent is a devout Christian who marries a big woman with a big heart, but ends up in a fiery love affair with a respected church member-one that calls more than his marriage into question. And after getting a Dear John letter from his wife, who unexpectedly takes off with their children, Sonny reconnects with an ex-, but wife Jessica's reasons for leaving, when they come out, may put all of his relationships in doubt. While some plot points are contrived, major revelations and an eye-raising twist will make even seen-it-all fans gasp. And the drama doesn't end but plants the seeds for Weber's next, The First Lady.

This was one of the 1st books that I read by Carl Weber and this book was off the chain! I love books that captures my attention on the very 1st page. I just loved all of the characters, but my favorite was Sonny. OMG I had no idea, oops let me stop before I spill the beans. I'm trying to find other book to read by Mr. Weber, he has me hooked now. Great job! Please get a copy for yourself and you will see what I'm talking about! Enjoy

This book was GREAT. A lady in Walmart suggested that I read this book. Couldn't find it on Black Expressions, so I checked out Barnes & Nobles ... They had it, amongst other books I had been looking for ... I read this book in 1 1/2 days. Couldn't put it down ... James, Sonny and Brent renewed by strength in wanting to remain single, lol. Will be reading a few others of Carl Weber's books, and hope I'm just as equally pleased. Great job!

I really enjoyed this book! It kept me guessing and eager to read so I could find out more. I was happy with the ending and glad that the book didn't make me wonder what happened with the characters. This is definitely a must read!

Page turner from the beginning! None of the characters are who you thought they were at the end of the book (except maybe one). So many shocking twists! Absolutely love this book & I have never been disapointed by any of Carl Weber's books.

I've never been one to read this catergory of novels from men authors but I wanted to give it a try. This book was amazing with so many unexpecteds and mixed emotions about characters. The sex scenes were definitely different but enjoyable nonetheless. Two thumbs up!!
