Book Description

June 1 2010
Jake Billings is usually cool under pressure, but when two stick-up kids rob his record store, Jake opens fire on them, landing him in prison. Five days in, he receives an anonymous letter telling him that his days are numbered. But before he can find out who’s behind the threats, Jake is stabbed and ends up in a coma.

When he wakes in a hospital bed two years later, things have changed: His prison sentence has been commuted, his girlfriend is fiercely independent, and his side piece has gotten out of the street life altogether. But one thing remains: Jake’s enemy still wants him dead and is powerful enough to track him down no matter where he hides.

On the run, and with rumors circulating about a powerful, phantomlike gang called the 300 Crew, Jake will need to rely on his mantra: Trust no one—not the law, not his girl, not the street cats he helped out years ago, not even his own blood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Styles P delivers on another level June 25 2010
By Jerome Waring - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book was action packed from beginning to end! March 22 2011

I saw Styles P promoting this book on Twitter so I decided to buy it for my husband. I made the mistake of reading an excerpt out of it before I gave it to him. Needless to say he didn't get the book right away. I couldn't put it down! From the first sentence to the very last, this book captivates u and drags u in to Jake's world with a front row seat! I finished the book in 7 hours! I cooked reading it, I ate reading it, I went to sleep reading it, I woke up reading it. When I say I could not put it down, that's and understatement. Styles P is a genius for this book. Movie needs to be made on this one! GENIUS!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Trapped in a web of deceit Sept. 16 2010
By SiStar Tea - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Debut! Aug. 15 2010
By Urban Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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. Paul was also known for his shiesty tactics and schemes. Police officers, FBI agents, and crime bosses were all on his payroll. Paul was used to getting what he wanted...and when he wanted. Things go deadly wrong when a late-night rendezvous ends up in a bloody massacre. Jake ends up saving Paul's life, but couldn't save him from being violated in the worst way possible. Jake and Paul share a secret between each other, and if it were to ever be leaked, it would most certainly ruin Paul. Feeling vulnerable, Paul feels Jake is a threat, and the threat must be eliminated. Will Paul's plan go smoothly, or will there more hurdles in the road up ahead?

Styles P's Invincible takes you on a journey of a man who can't trust anyone. Just when he thinks things can't get worse, they do. For his first novel, Styles P gives us a lot of details and background information that lead up to the circumstances at hand. I could actually imagine exactly how and when it went down. At times, with some much going on in the novel, it was a bit confusing. But overall, Invincible had a good storyline.
