Welcome To BGBC,
This review is from: Something on the Side (Hardcover)
Have you ever been in a club that had some weird restrictions? Like, you must be tall with long hair, or your name must start with the letter "K" and end with a "Y." Well, meet Tammy, Isis, Egypt, Nikki, and Coco, they're all members of the BGBC (Big Girls Book Club). To be a member of this club, you must be at least a size 14.
Tammy, the club's president loves her life. She has two adorable kids, a loving husband, and the best sex life you could imagine. Tammy's husband Tim has a birthday coming up, and she wants to fulfill his most freakiest sexual fantasy: a threesome with two women. She has it all planned except for one thing: Who can she trust to be the third player in this game? The only person that comes to mind is her best friend Egypt. As much as Tammy knows that Egypt would never willingly agree to this, she has to tempt her with something that Egypt could not refuse. Will Egypt agree to play, or will Tammy have to find another "gift" to give Tim for his birthday?
Not all members of the BGBC has a loving man to come home to. Meet Nikki, she was in love with her baby daddy. That is until he started beating her for no reason at all. He would punch her in the face if she smiled at the mailman. Now that he's her ex, it takes all of her strength not to kill him, or let her "roommate" Tiny complete the task. The only thing that's stopping her is her son. He loves his daddy, and she will do whatever it takes not to disappoint him.
Isis has a man (Tony) that worships the ground she walks on. He knows how to please her in every possible way. And that makes Isis want to settle down & become his wife. That is until Rashad comes back to town & tries to take her away. Little does Isis and Rashad know, Tony has a few tricks up his sleeve. Some are good, and some will destroy Isis's faith in men.
And then there was Miss Coco, who's habit was trying to decide which man she's going to allow to pay her bills. It didn't matter if they had a girlfriend, was already married, or was a single man. As long as the price was right, she would be their lady for the night. That was until she meets Mac. He makes her weak in the knees and enjoys every minute of it. But here's the question: Is Coco ready to give up her many men for Mac, or is she satisfied playing the field?
I want to thank Mr. Carl Weber for finally putting a little meat on his characters' bones. Something On The Side had a lot of excitement. Carl Weber made sure this book had some spice...and it had a lot. Each character added their own little "umph." The storyline dealt with a lot of issues that sometimes happen in everyday life. The way the characters always found a way to be encouraged by each other made you like each one of them. This was one of those books that when you pick it up, you don't want to put it down. You'll want to find out what's next in the lives of the women in the Big Girls Book Club.
