Sexual Reawakening

Little Black Dress – James Patterson with Emily Raymond

Book shots, thriller, mystery, horror, fiction.

Rating 7.9/10

Jane suffered a horrible divorce two years ago, going to therapy, and being celibate for that time duration. When she sees a pretty little black dress, she decides to buy it and go out on the town. She has some adventures and her last causes some chaos.

This was a good book shot novel. Not the best but wished there was a bit more drama or more thrills in it. I did appreciate this novels story and the thought of a dress causing this woman to have some sexual adventures. This would’ve worked better as a novel rather than a book shot.


College Student Killer on the LOOSE

Black & Blue – James Patterson with Candice Fox {Bookshots}

Mystery, thriller, fiction.

Rating 8/10

Detective Harriet Blue loves to serve justice when justice is needed. Sometimes she takes matters into her own hands. At a college is a killer hunting down the female student population at the college. Harriet takes matters into her own hands to hunt down the killer. What she finds is much more sinister than she had ever thought she would come across in her entire career.

I had fun reading this bookshot and had reread it in one sitting because the story is so intense and fast pace. Mysteries are supposed to be fast paced and page turners. This bookshot satisfied my need for a good mystery. Highly recommend this one to everyone who’s into mysteries.

Mysteries can be DANGEROUS

Rating 8/10

I never heard of bookshots and decided to give them a go. Within one hundred and fifty pages is a story without fluff. Completely a storyline without any distractions forcing the reader to read. I found myself never stopping to even get water until I completed the bookshot. I enjoyed this one a lot. I plan to read more of these soon. I recommend bookshots for whenever one is on the go and wants to read a short book.

Life Changing Journey

The Perfect Predator: A Scientists Race to Save Her Husband from a Deadly Disease – Steffanie Strathdee and Thomas Patterson

Disease, life altering, life threatening, survival, nonfiction.

Rating 9/10

While on vacation, Steffanie and her husband Thomas, were having a great time and enjoying themselves. Unluckily her husband had contracted a disease that was not easily treatable at first. Further into the story, they go to hospitals and this disease that was contracted was untreatable and this was going to end with her husband possibly dying. All was a race to survive this disease but along the way, Steffanie never felt less of her husband nor left his side. She stayed by his side through thick and thin.

I found this nonfiction book to be very compelling as well as a page turner. My heart swelled and I had gotten goosebumps throughout reading this work. I thought, at first, that this was going to be bland and boring. I was happy I was wrong about my speculations of this work. I do recommend to read this nonfiction work if one is intrigued to hear survival stories and other accounts of survival told through other’s perspectives. This helped gained some knowledge but as a warning, do not self-diagnose and go see a doctor, no matter what the condition may be.

Keep Running! DON’T LOOK BACK!

Deadman Running – James Patterson with Christopher Farnsworth

Murder mystery, thriller, fiction.

Rating 10/10

Randall Beck is an ordinary psychiatrist who works with patients that have extreme cases of post-traumatic stress disorder. What his patients don’t know is that Beck has a brain tumor that is slowly but surely killing him. After a session with his patient, he walks with his patient outside. A van comes and someone assassinates his patient in front of his eyes. The very same van comes, and these men claim they are with the secret service, but they aren’t. They temporarily kidnap Beck, but Beck manages to get away. He calls help from an associate, Susan. After finding out that the patient’s wife is dead and there was a woman claiming to be his wife, it is a fight to escape. Now all the police are after Beck and Susan for a crime they didn’t commit. Beck races the clock to rescue as many lives as he can before his own clock ends. The senator holds Beck and Susan hostage and proposes the idea of Beck being the bomber man. If Beck cooperates, Susan will be freed and sent home alive. Now Beck has no choice but to cooperate and be a kamikaze solider for this senator. Both Beck and Susan simultaneously make plans to save themselves.

I extremely loved this thriller mystery novel. It was so fast paced and intense that I finished it in one day. It is rare for me to really love the novel to finish it in one day like this one. It was a page turner for sure and I loved the race against time. James Patterson’s collaboration with Christopher Farnsworth was the best. It wasn’t expected for the plot twist, however. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to read an excellent mystery thriller. This book satisfied what I wanted as a thriller novel. There was no cliché bullshit either, so I was happy with this novel.

Patterson Could’ve Done Better

The Injustice – James Patterson

Social media, documentary films, high school, family problems, grief, mystery, detective, young adult.

Rating 1/10

Theo Foster is being charged and expelled from high school because of a photo he never had posted. Determined, he seeks out who would frame him, and ruin other’s lives. Theo comes across some disturbing secrets and uncovers ugly truths that put him and the other lives who was ruined back in good graces. Theo does the right thing and is happy for doing the right thing.

I hated how this book started off and ended. I can tell this novel was poorly written and wasn’t well thought into. This novel was sad and pathetic in the end. James Patterson should stick with adult fiction rather than attempting to make young adult fiction. No offense for James Patterson fans. This one just wasn’t his best work.
