Spotson states that he always takes meticulous care when plotting his novels and this is clearly evident in Delusional, an intricately crafted work that draws together the threads of romance, supernatural, thriller and crime.
I must confess I have very little interest in stories that specifically focus on romance or interpersonal relationships but there is so much more to this novel. Despite being rather long it nevertheless kept me gripped throughout with constant cliff hangers and reveals. In ...more
Well plotted and perfectly set up the bo ...more
I must say that this story was surprisingly quick read and even though I am not must a fan of Romance based stories, this story did made me fell in-love with the story and the characters.
At first you have two storied that slowly being combined together. From the beginning of the story you are kept in suspense of who is the thief of the Hope diamond and why or how Patricia has her hallucinations and delusions.
The story starts with Patricia falling for a married colleague, Paul, and then it escalates into Patricia’s worst nightmare. Visions, scary near-misses, and other spine-chilling occurrences punctuate the next few weeks, drivi ...more
I enjoyed this form of storytelling, which gives the reader knowledge but thrusts ignorant characters into dangerous circumstances. The heightened tension was evident through ...more
I guess I could sum it up by saying the book just needed more polish. Frequently, the author was talkin ...more

I had a little bit of trouble with suspension of disbelief about the magic. Not because magic can’t be in the real world, but because of how everyone reacts to it. If magic exists, it’s hard to wrap my head arou ...more
That being said, (and others may feel differently here---) I had a problem with the basic assumptions supporting the plot of this particular book. Without disclosing the gist of the story, I really felt that witchcraft felt a bit of an easy way out, and did not do full justice to the main thread of the story, the romance between Patricia ...more
. . . WENDY JEWETT!

“Delusional”, at its core, is the story of a professional young woman who has her head down, focused only on her work, constantly trying to remove herself from office drama in order to exceed in her career. Which gives her a rather bland personality, Patricia’s only vice is adhering to a strict exercise regimen, and pining to find a new romantic partner because, according to her life plan, it’s about time she start hunkering ...more
I only have one word to describe Delusional and that is: WOW! This book was not what I was expecting at all and I was completely blown away by how into the story I was. Delusional captivated me from the beginning, and I would find myself not wanting to stop because I just wanted to find out what would happen next. This book is definitely a thriller that contains elements of mystery, suspense, psychopaths, and the super ...more
You all know I love weird mixtures of Genres ( like really really ) , and I think it was brilliant of the author to try something out with this book too . But I'm not really sure where I stand with the story itself . I gotta warn ya that there's a lot of ranting ahead ..
First off , Delusional is mostly a thriller and it was a fascinating one at that . This is about how a woman falls for her married colleague and then they start seeing each other ( despicabl ...more
Delusional is a roller coaster of a ride, Spotson throws the reader right into the middle of it and keeps you racing through, seeing characters from different POVs through out the entire book. At first, the books seems a little unclear and all over the place, but as you continue reading, you realize it's because everyone's story starts to intertwine with each other and it creates this paranormal romance / thriller / myster ...more
The storyline includes an art thief, a mystery murderous woman in red stilettos, a possible affair, stocki ...more
Scott Spotson's Delusional invites us into the lives of some interesting but mildly flawed characters from various walks of life. Ok, so perhaps some are more flawed than others but who's judging? At any rate, you may find yourselves empathetic toward some of the helpless characters in this story and seething with a furious passion toward others midway through the pages. It's a soap opera on paper-you may ye ...more
tl;dr A pretty good story overall, but it dragged at times and was a little wordy.
This is my first ever book review request! Quite exciting, and I must say I do love getting these requests!! Sorry it took so long to write it :( Boo holidays. Anyways.
So overall this was a pretty enjoyable book. The beginning was a little difficult to get into though. We start out meeting Patricia while she is swimming at the gym on her lunch break. It seems like even though she is a successful woman, all she...more

It’s obviously a very richly and deeply imagined world, and therein lies part of the problem for me. Furniture, food, clothing, people, were all described in such depth that no detail was left behind. Nothing was left to the ...more

The main character in this amazing book is Patricia Fowler. An extremely hard working, very thoughtful, pleasant woman who just happens to fall for a married man, Paul Blast. While normally I would not be rooting for the other woman, this novel left me feeling a little conflicted a ...more
