O.M.G. The DUNCAN family is off the hook! Vegas, Rio, Orlando, London and Paris = FIYAH!!! I red this book in a weekend! What a way to start off the new year! This story has plot, sex, drama, sex, suspense, sex, betrayal, sex, power, sex, and of course FAMILY!! Did I mention - SEX!!! Yes! The women are so powerful in this story as well as the men. I can't wait for part 2 - The Family Business is definitely one of the top reads for 2012! Thank you Carl Weber and Eric Pete for delivering an unforgettable story - just what we need to shake off the winter chill...

This book was so different from the other books that I've read by Carl Weber. The Duncan family was off the hook... Orlando, Rio, London, Paris and Vegas are children of LC and his wife. This family had so much drama that it would make your head spin. This book will have you so hyped that you will not be able to put it down. I can't wait for the next one. I hope that it will not be long before it is released. This is a great read and I highly recommend.... This family is like no other...

" The Family Business" by Carl Weber...wow, where do I begin. This is the story of The Duncan Family. It's head, L.C and wife, Chippy. Orlando, Vegas, London, Rico,and Paris make up their children. On the outside, everything appears calm. But in reality, they each hold thier own serets. Secrets that could threaten to tear the family apart if they ever came to light. They all have a special talent or skill when it comes to running Duncan Motors, the family business. But even that is not what it appears to be!
The Family Business was a great read. I loved how the diffrent point of views were covered. There were so many twists and turns. This is Carl's most edgiest book to date and I loved it. There was a little bit of everything in this book. Action, suspense, comedy, the works! I would love to see this book adapted for the big screen and cannot wait for " Extended Family". Great read.

I'm almost afraid to write this review because I fear I might give something away. I've been reading Carl for years now and I'm always amazed at his spaghetti-like plot direction and how what you think you know about a character is nothing like the reality of that character. In `The Family Business' we are introduced to the Duncan family. L.C. (dad), Chippy (Mom), and the children; Rio, Orlando, Paris. Together as a family they run Duncan Motors, an extremely successful car dealership. But... as I alluded to earlier, nothing is what it seems. What I enjoyed about this book (aside from the story) was how Carl & Eric would throw in a hairpin that left you like "what... huh?"

This book could easily be a reality show called `Duncan Family Values'. EVERYONE has a secret and EVERYONE has an agenda. I wish I could tell you more about this book... but I'm afraid I would slip up and tell you something that you don't need to hear. Just take my word, K?

The Family Business is full of drama and suspense. I started reading and thought I knew where it was going. I didn't, but was glad I chose t go. I recommend this book to all who love good story lines, with the promise of a sequel.
