About the Author

STYLES P (David Styles), a Queens-born, Yonkers-bred emcee, first stepped on the scene as one-third of the famed hip-hop trio the LOX (aka D-Block), a group he formed with childhood friends Jadakiss and Sheek. After guest-starring on multiplatinum singles like "We'll Always Love Big Poppa," and "All About the Benjamins," Styles and the LOX released their albums Money, Power & Respect and We Are the Streets, before the group's members began focusing on solo projects. Styles P’s solo projects include A Gangster and a Gentleman, Time Is Money, and Super Gangster (Extraordinary Gentleman). Invincible is his first novel.

I have been following Styles P since the early days as a member of the L.O.X since the early days with the Bad Boy family. I knew that he has one of the best lyrics in the game, However; Invincible is one of his best work. Jake Billings is basically an urban legend. He takes on several enemies and have to deal with the devils of being locked up. This book has hood action in it since chapter one and until the end of the book. I am waiting for another book by Styles P soon. Stay up and good work.

As a Yonkers native and friend of Styles P., I had to show my support and order his first novel. This is an action-packed mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat! Read this book in 2 days(would've been 1, but hey, I have to work and sleep). Looking forward to the next one. Make sure you pick this up, you wont be disappointed!

As you can see I haven't reviewed a book in over a year. None have excited me enough to sit still and actually think of something to say.

Jake Billings has no idea how he goes from being a low-key weed hustler opening his own store staying out the lime light to being a target for everyone he loves wanting him dead. Jake goes to jail for attempted murder and has no idea the hand he is about to be dealt. Instead of folding he holds his own.

Once he hits the county jail, he receives anonymous murder threats. So let the games begin, Jake decides to shut the tv down and give it to whomever in the jail want it but he is not and he repeats not going to be a sitting duck for no one!

One attempt after another on Jakes' life has not stopped his pursuit in the truth, they want war then its war its gone be is how Jake feels. Mr. Styles' made the character seem real, made you root for him thru out the entire story.

I highly recommend this book, the timeline was a little off is the only bad thing I can say about it. It has you actually routing for Jake to come out of it no matter how much dirt he has to do to survive.

Life is very precious, and at times, it's taken for granted. What if your life as you knew it was forever changed? Your freedom was taken away from you in a blink of an eye. Would you be able to sit down and be still, knowing that your downfall was at the hands of another man, or would you be out for the ultimate vengeance?

Jake Billings was a legend for a reason. Jake seemed to have settled down from his wild and crazy days. He owned a successful store and had his girl Kim by his side. Suddenly, he finds himself back in prison. Jack plans to walk the straight and narrow in prison, but then he receives a mysterious letter threatening his life. Watching over his shoulder is not how Jake saw doing his bid. His life began to fall into a downward spiral. Jake ends up in a coma after an unsuccessful attempt was made on his life. Waking up in a hospital room two years later, Jake a.k.a. "Mr. Invincible" seems to cheat death several times. Numerous attempts are made on Jake's life. Not knowing who to trust and who his attackers were, Jake entered "Beast" mode. And with the pieces slowly coming together, Jake realizes deception, deceit and dishonor are staring him in the face. Will Jake be able to maintain the upper hand, or will his demise be unavoidable?

Kim had been down for Jake for years, standing and supporting him in good and bad times. They knew each other since they were teenagers. Feeling underappreciated, Kim joins a deadly alliance that can leave life-altering consequences. Reuniting with Jake after so many years, Kim has one ultimate goal. The problem is that Jake is unaware of her attentions. Will Kim succeed with her plan, or will the tables be turned on her with deadly results?

Paul Rosenberg was a well known attorney who had an exceptional win rate.

I will start out by saying I was a lot Leary of reading this book by a rapper who is adding "author" to the resume. I will follow up by saying I was pleasantly surprised by the story line. The characters... the turn of events were surprisingly unexpected. While some I knew, others were very much a shock.

We meet Jake who is doing time in the infamous jail at Rikers Island. When he receives a death note he can't pin point where it comes from as he has done lots of dirt in the past. His girlfriend Kim has decided while she loves him she is not doing this bid with him so at this point if it wasn't for bad luck he would have no luck at all. When he gets into a jail house fight he ends up in a coma, when he wakes up 2 years later with limited memory the death threat is still there and now he can trust no one - friend or foe.

With the multitude of characters I loved the fact that none were useless and all are worthy of honorable mention. Author and I don't mind calling him that, author Styles P sums up the story and ties up all the loose ins. For those that don't know he wrote this story on his sidekick and he has since upgraded to a blackberry. I look forward to reading the story he's now writing on his blackberry.

Just as he is a lryical genious, Styles shows us that he can be multi-facted in this novel. Invincible is an on the edge, page turning, inviting tale of how the streets can turn on you in an instant and how skeletons from your past can come bacc with a vengance. Definitly worth the money and time.
Styles you definitly was not lying when you said "I don't write rhymes, I write novels" I look forward to reading more material from you in the near future, keep it coming both in both forms of writing. I also thought it was very geninue of you to thank your mother for giving you the gift of books.
Nikki Turner you are a great representation of African American woman novelists. I love your work, you always keep me coming bacc for more. Once I saw that it was a book written by both you and Styles I knew right then and there it would be one that I would enjoy. I hope to see this go from book to screen in the near future.
