The Pawn - A Patrick Bowers Thriller (Book 1) by Steven James

The Pawn (The Patrick Bowers Files, #1)The Pawn by Steven James

My rating: PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

From page one of 'The Pawn', I was captured and didn't want to put the book down. The prologue was so gripping that I could vividly imagine what was happening. The suspense didn't stop there, it stayed throughout the entire book and with a surprise twist ending 'The Pawn' is sure to keep you up in the night.

There are some gruesome scenes in 'The Pawn', so if you don't like reading books that are somewhat disturbing I wouldn't recommend this, but if you like reading books that are filled with suspense and hold you attention, then by all means read 'The Pawn'!

'The Pawn' is the first book I've read by Steven James, but I enjoyed it so much that I plan to continue the series!

I give this 4.5 stars only because of some of the things said. I still think it was good and worth reading.

Deceit by Brandilyn Collins

My rating: PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket


I really enjoyed reading 'Deceit'. There were twists everywhere, that I didn't expect, which kept me guessing until the end.

Brandilyn Collins is really good at combining suspense with a great story that keeps your attention to the end. I think 'Deceit' should have had about two more chapters because it didn't seem 'finished'.

I really liked the subtle message about how lies are lies and even if you do it for your job it is still a lie. I have read almost all of Brandilyn Collins books and loved most (if not all) of them. I recommend 'Deceit' if you love reading books that keep you guessing and are filled with suspense.

Head Game by Tim Downs

My rating: PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket


The books starts out with a graphic novel format illustrated by the author, which is different. Although, I didn’t understand the meaning of it at first. Around chapter 3 it explains itself.

When I was a few chapters in 'Head Game', I got to where I wanted to finish it, wanted to know what happened, what really is going on. Is the guy (not going to name who as to spoil it) really dead…or was it all a hoax so he could live? Maybe he knew that if he was alive that he would be killed, so he faked his own suicide. What really is going on? All these question and I was only on chapter 7...

But since finishing 'Head Game', I realize what was really going on. I enjoyed reading it and though it doesn't seem to be a CHRISTIAN book (with minimal mentioning of God), it was overall a good read. A few things it said I didn't like, but if you are looking for a book that has suspense/mystery, this is a nice one to read.

The ending was dramatic and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
