Something on the Side + Big Girls Do Cry



I just finished two great books by Carl Weber: Something On The Side and Big Girls Do Cry. Let me just say…you have six women…all fly. funky.full of curves…and FABULOUS! When you put more than two women together, something interesting may pop off. Love, Friendship, Sex, Lies, and Betrayal…just to name a few.

About this book…

Meet Tammy, Egypt, Isis, Nikki, Coco, and Tiny—the bodacious women of the Big Girls Book Club. There’s only one rule to being a member. You must be at least a size 14. . .

BGBC president Tammy loves everything about her life—her two kids, her fierce friends, her BMW. She especially loves taking care of business for her husband, Tim, for whom she’d do anything. This year, she intends to top all his past birthdays by having a threesome with her best friend, Egypt. Now, if only Egypt will agree to grant them this very special favor. . .

But that’s not it…Big Girls Do Cry is the second part and it was good! It took me a little longer to finish because I kept getting distracted. Let me just say…when I focused (which was about the middle of the book) it started to get so good and I finally finished it that next day! The ending left me with one word…WOWZERS!

About this book…

In this explosive follow-up to Something on the Side, two of the original members of the Big Girls Book Club have started a new chapter of BGBC in Richmond, Virginia. The same rules apply here: You must be at least a bodacious size 14 to join. . .

Living in the plush suburbs, thirty-seven-year-old Egypt has it all–almost. She’s happily married to Rashad, but there’s one thing missing. They want to start a family. Enter her sister, Isis, who’s moved into Egypt’s McMansion with dreams of starting over. There’s just one hitch: before her sister married Rashad, he was Isis’s man for ten years. Isis thought she was over him, but the close quarters are creating doubts. She’s ready to leave until Egypt and Rashad ask her for a serious favor. And Isis can’t say no–even if the price might be way too high for them all.

I cannot wait to get started with part three, Torn Between Two Lovers! That will be next on my list after I get caught up with Kimberla Lawson Roby’s: Rev. Curtis Black Series. I’m currently reading Love and Lies and I’m almost done. I’ll keep you posted on that one!

I would love to know what you are reading. Leave a comment and let me know what to add to my To-Read List!

Until next time…Happy Reading!!!
