"I would recommend this book to anyone who likes James Patterson or books like his. I can't wait for the next book to come out."
—Sandra Labella, Amazon reviewer

“I think this is the final in the series. Without giving anything away, the end at first was a complete letdown. Then as I thought through it, it almost made no sense to end it any other way. Risky, but pulled off really well. I think if Tom Clancy crossed genres it would look something like this. Well done.”
—Roy Bartle

“I loved this book. It kept me turning one page after the other at a fast pace. James Patterson is one of my favorite authors. I have read many on his books. Hoping to read all of them in my lifetime.”
—Amazon Reviewer

“Sweet Dreams was a book I read in 2 days. I truly enjoyed the read. It kept me wanting to know more. I'm looking forward to Part 2 of the WJA Trilogy!”
—Sharon Adams, Novi, MI

“Suspense, thriller with a perfect ending, leaving me wanting more. An on the edge of your seat, all night read. I most certainly will be reading “Dream On.”
—Sheri Wilkinson, Sandwich, IL

“New authors come and go every day. Very few come on the scene with the ability to weave a tale that will make you sad to reach the end, longing for more. At a time when the world needs a real hero, Patterson delivers big with the WJA's Mark Appleton—an unlikely hero for the 21st century.”
—The Joe Show

“Aaron Patterson spins a good tale and does it well.”

“SWEET DREAMS is packed with action, suspense, romance, betrayal, death, and mystery.”
—Drew Maples, author of “28 Yards from Safety”

Aaron loved to read as a small child and would often be found behind a book, reading one to three a day on average. This love drove him to want to write, but he never thought he had the talent.

He lives in Boise, Idaho with his family, Soleil, Kale and Klayton.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow Feb. 28 2011
By Wyn
Format:Perfect Paperback
Wow, what a great book. I was enjoying the story, thinking to myself that it was a good espionage novel when bam, right out of no where, a twist. A twist worthy of a soap opera, never saw it coming at all. The writing is great, definitely keeps the reader intrigued and wanting to turn the pages. Although the setting is the current time there is new technology introduced in such a way that one wonders if it could really be in the development stage on someone's experimental computer drawings somewhere in the world where money is no object. Both Mark and Dirk's characters are developed to the point of believability and definitely left me anxious to continue on with the second book in the series. Way to go Aaron!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Dreams Aug. 20 2010
By Sandra Labella - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book. I had downloaded his first book Dreams my accident. I thought that I was getting James Patterson and just started reading and loved the book. So when I finished the first book I went on to this the 2nd and it was just as good as the first. He is very much like James Patterson one of my favorite writers. I didn't want to put the book down, there was always something going on. The characters are great you feel you know them and like them. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes James Patterson or books like his. I can't wait for the next book to come out.

3.0 out of 5 stars impressed with this writing May 19 2010
By K. Gallegos - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an exciting book - I could hardly put it down. Some places could have used some more development, I was confused in some places and it took me a little time figuring out where we were in the story. Adding the details of how the storyline came about would have been useful and would have made the book a little longer to enjoy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sloppy in every sense Jan. 15 2011
By Karen Wynne - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So poorly edited was this book (at least in the Kindle edition) that it almost distracted from the many ridiculous premises . On many occasions I had to re-read lines to make out the intended sense.You wouldn't know that I hate to be picky, but most other editors know when to use the word "than" instead of "then". The plot started out as a standard thriller, but ended up half-way through the book turning into more of a second rate science fiction than thriller. The prose varies from Harlequin romance sickly sweet (I touched her soft shoulder), to comic book heroic. Maybe I misunderstood the reviews. Is this a book for young readers?

1.0 out of 5 stars A bad comic book Dec 14 2010
By Tonton - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The only things lacking in this violent comic book are the illustrations & word bubbles. Total disregard for science. Stereotyped characters. Disjointed & sloppy anything-goes story line. Fantasy gadgets. Cruel & amoral acts carried out by the main character in the name of justice. This is not the stuff of even mediochre novels. This is a bad book. It is aimed at a person with a mental age of 10 or less with violent tendencies. I read it to the end in spite of my rising nausea because (1) I'd paid for it and (2) I kept hoping that somewhere near the end the author might come up with a surprise to pull it together and save his book from filing as literary trash; but no. I regret my decision to have finished it.

1.0 out of 5 stars lame...grammatical issues aside March 25 2010
By W. Werner - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is potential for a good story in this book, but it never quite feels cohesive. One of the key basic plot turns does not reveal or segue is fairly abrupt and this reader was left with the desire to re-read the section to see if I missed something the first time around. I wanted to put it down and stop reading, but I kept going hoping it would get better...instead it got more unbelievable. The author then moved into creating almost unrealistic tools the characters would use ...spoiler machine? bullets that shoot material that make the blood harden instantly? Really? Not much depth to some of the main characters either. I did not finish this book.
