Bedroom Games

Kandis Thornton was on the show for one reason, the money. She wanted to help her mother and the money would do that. Kandis had a plan going into the show but it will be blown away when she gets a partner, Brodie Short. Though as they work together Kandis wonders if something real could come from a fake show.

Brodie Short was wanting to be famous, that was why he was on these reality tv shows. His first show had him as a villain and he wanted to change that. He had become a flirt instead but his partner will have him wanting more.

Bedroom Games is the fourth book from the series Games by Jessica Clare. I really liked this novel. I am a big fan of Big Brother reality tv show and this was based off that popular tv show. Reading this novel definitely brought me back to the show especially with all the deals that are made between the contestants.

Kandis’s character was someone I appreciated because she was playing the game but even through all of it you could still tell the real girl beneath it all. I liked that she found lust with Brodie but she still kept her guard up around him. Brodie’s character was considered the villain from the previous book and I fully expected to dislike him but I didn’t. Within this game it is expected to sneaky and he did a good job, but you got to read his thoughts in the interviews and knew that he was starting to feel something that was real. Though all through the whole book I wondered if those feelings would truly last. I got the answer at the end of the book.

I am readingĀ Body Games next.

The Runaway Jury by John Grishman

“They are at the center of a multi million-dollar legal hurricane: twelve men and women who have been investigated, watched, manipulated, and harassed by high-priced lawyers and consultants who will stop at nothing to secure a verdict. Now the jury must make a decision in the most explosive civil trial of the century, a precedent setting lawsuit against a giant tobacco company. But only a handful of people know the truth: that this jury has a leader, and the verdict belongs to him…

He is known only as Juror #2. But he has a name, a past, and he has planned his every move with the help of a beautiful woman on the outside. Now, while a corporate empire hangs in the balance, while a grieving family waits, and while lawyers are plunged into a battle for their careers, the truth about Juror #2 is about to explode, in a cross fire of greed and corruption-and with justice fighting for its life…”

Well this is my first time ever reading a John Grisham novel. I picked this novel, The Runaway Jury, because I saw the movie and fell in love with it. I loved the plot and style which is was shown so I hoped the book was the same.

Overall the book was truly fantastic to read. There were the same fascinating characters and plot with a lot of detail and development. But there came the problem. There was a lot of detail. I love detail but there was a lot that it got a little long in certain areas. Of course all the other areas were great to read.

As I read the book I found myself wishing that I didn’t see the movie first. The movie was about shooting and the book about tobacco but still with the same characters. At first I was a little confused. I expected the sueing of firearms but I got something else. I liked the movie plot. Now in all honesty that didn’t lose the fact that Grisham delivered a very detailed and interesting book to read. Once I got into the story the movie was no longer a problem.

John Grisham is a fantastic storyteller. Grishman created an interesting and complex characters intertwined into The Runaway Jury to make an exciting story.
