Overview

"Jack Reacher, John Rain and Cotton Malone, on the sex therapist's couch. Testosterone therapy as high art. What could be better? One of the most original and well-done series of stories I've ever read. M.J. Rose has blasted this baby to the ozone. I don't care if you download it or listen to it. just get it." - NYT Bestseller, David Baldacci </br>



As a therapist specializing in sexual issues, psychiatrist Dr. Morgan Snow isn't easily shocked, or shaken, as readers of the popular "Butterfield Institute" novels know. There are times, however, when the need for her services leads her out of the office... and into unfamiliar worlds.

</br>

In these stories the therapist matches her wits -and her training - against three men of mystery: Jack Reacher, John Rain, and Cotton Malone.

</br>

Those characters are, of course, familiar to readers as the creations, respectively, of NYT bestselling authors Lee Child, Barry Eisler, and Steve Berry. All three swore that their characters would never agree to therapy - unless Rose found a way to get then there. And she did.

</br>

In EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES with Steve Berry's Cotton Malone, a woman seeks help for her lover, and sends Dr. Snow overseas on a most unusual house call....

</br>

DECISIONS, DECISIONS where Barry Eisler's John Rain forces Dr. Snow out of her own comfort zone, and into the world of a former patient's worst nightmare...

</br>

And KNOWING YOU'RE ALIVE with Lee Child's Jack Reacher results in revelations for both the injured Dr. Snow, and her unexpected savior/patient...

</br>

All the proceeds of the audio book and a share of the proceeds of the ebook will be donated to David Baldacci's Wish You Well Foundation, supporting family literacy. (wishyouwellfoundation.org/)

Editorial Reviews

Barry Eisler
"When John Rain considers taking on Dr. Morgan Snow as a client, the danger isn't winding up in a coffin -- it's winding up on the couch. But I made him take the risk anyway, and it was a blast!" - NYT Bestseller, Barry Eisler
David Baldacci
"Jack Reacher, John Rain and Cotton Malone, on the sex therapist's couch. Testosterone therapy as high art. What could be better? One of the most original and well-done series of stories I've ever read. M.J. Rose has blasted this baby to the ozone. I don't care if you download it or listen to it. just get it." - NYT Bestseller, David Baldacci
Lee Child
"I bet M.J. Rose she couldn't get Jack Reacher into Morgan Snow's office. I lost. Find out how." - NYT Bestseller, Lee Child
Steve Berry
"Seeing another side of Cotton Malone, written from another writer's perspective, was eye opening. Needless to say, the subject matter is not something Cotton normally deals with, but M.J. made sure he handled it with his usual smooth, Southern style. I enjoyed the adventure. You will too." - NYT Bestseller, Steve Berry

    This crossover of protagonists from different authors is just pure awesomeness!

    I'd have to admit that the main reason why I picked up this book was because of Barry Eisler's John Rain. I have three John Rain books and I just couldn't resist not reading this one.

    Aside from John Rain, the other thing which made me pick up this book was the fact that it involved a sex therapist. Sex is an interesting yet delicate topic. Most people are still uncomfortable in discussing it openly, so I wanted to see how a sex therapist works.

    I was not disappointed in picking up this book!

    Dr. Morgan Snow is smart as she is perceptive. In Extenuating Circumstances, Dr. Morgan Snow shows that a sex therapy can be done even outside the four walls of her clinic. In fact, she almost seemed like a spy with what she did!

    In Decision, Decisions (OMG! John Rain is here!!!), she crosses paths with John Rain, an assassin extraordinaire who can make his targets look like they died of natural causes. When Dr. Morgan Snow somehow assesses John Rain during a brief walk, she showed a totally different perspective of what his job meant to John Rain. And of course, the awesomesauce ending of John Rain being this stealthy good guy was epic. It totally rocked my socks off!

    And finally, in Knowing You're Alive, this time, it isn't Dr. Morgan Snow who gives someone an epiphany. In the person of Lee Child's Jack Reacher, Dr. Morgan Snow learns that needing someone doesn't necessarily mean that you're weak, and being independent doesn't necessarily translate to strength. This message was what really got to me because it's the exact same sentiment I groan when I read about the noble idiocy of so many heroes and heroines in the many novels that I've read! It's just... perfect!

    What is the book about? Three stories from the files of Dr. Morgan
    Snow, a sex therapist at the Butterfield Institute, one of New York
    City's most highly respected sex clinics. Dr. Snow respectfully meets
    with Cotton Malone and helps couple who has problems communicating
    intimately and in return finds herself rewarded in a unique way. The
    Butterfield Institute has it's share of celebrity clients of the rich
    and famous. People like Michael, who is the kind of politician who gets
    votes because he of his charisma, leads Dr. Snow to meeting with a known
    hitman. When Dr. Snow meets Jack Reacher, she is wedged under her own
    office debris due to an explosion that was probably meant to kill her.
    While waiting for help Jack tells her a very personal story to help keep
    her calm. What did I think of the book? Dr. Snow is a brilliant and
    kind hearted sex therapist that goes above and beyond her job
    description to help her clients, and even those who come to meet her.
    Exceptionally well written that had me flipping pages for more. I Just
    wish there was more to read.

    Great Book

    MJ Rose really captures the characters well. I was worried this was not going to be good since she is not the orginal author of any of these characters however she really captured the characters well. It was hard to believe she was able to break through to Cotton Malone and Jack Reacher. Excellent book I would recommend to any avid reader of the Cotton Malone or Jack Reacher books!!

    John Rain story not included in download

    Disappointing to only receive 2 of the 3 stories...John Rain is a favorite of mine. Other stories were still interesting and entertaining. Great quick fix between novels

    Professional Fan Fiction

    In Ses­sion by M.J. Rose is a short book which con­tains three short sto­ries. This is a unique book because Ms. Rose uses three fic­tional char­ac­ters of other authors who visit her cre­ation - a sex therapist.

    The book con­tains 3 short sto­ries:
    Exten­u­at­ing Cir­cum­stances: fea­tur­ing Steve Berry's Cot­ton Mal­one. A woman who wants help for her lover prompts Dr. Snow, sex ther­a­pist, to go over­seas in order to meet with the man.

    Deci­sions, Deci­sions: fea­tur­ing Barry Eisler's John Rain. In this story Dr. Snow steps out of her com­fort zone into a world of gray, where the lines between good and evil are intertwined.

    Know­ing You're Alive: fea­tur­ing Lee Child's Jack Reacher. Dr. Snow finds an unex­pected sav­ior but doesn't miss the oppor­tu­nity for some one-on-one therapy.

    In Ses­sion by M.J. Rose is a like­able book and inter­est­ing as well. The book flatly falls under the cat­e­gory of "fan fic­tion" but it is writ­ten by an estab­lished and suc­cess­ful author.

    The com­mon denom­i­na­tor between all sto­ries is Ms. Rose's cre­ation of sex-therapist Dr. Mor­gan Snow who ana­lyzes three famous fic­tional char­ac­ters Lee Child's Jack Reacher, Steve Berry's Cot­ton Mal­one and Barry Eisler's John Rain.

    When I read the syn­op­sis for the book, the first thing that came into my mind was how will Ms. Rose come up with rea­sons to put Reacher, the drifter, Mal­one, the covert agent (or for­mer) and Rain, an assas­sin, on a sex therapist's couch?

    After all, many men much less for­mi­da­ble than those three would ever agree to such a session.

    Ms. Rose actu­ally man­aged to do this. She used var­i­ous cre­ative tech­niques and delv­ing into the char­ac­ters' psy­che and giv­ing them a new dimension.

    Over­all, a very inter­est­ing book, a short, quick read and well worth it espe­cially if you are a fan of one or more of the characters.

    If you decided to get the audio ver­sion it is nar­rated by Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross. This ver­sion also fea­tures Dick Hill, Scott Brick and Barry Eisler repris­ing their roles of Reacher, Mal­one and Rain.

    Pro­ceeds from the audio­book and some from the e-book are going to David Baldacci's Wish You Well Foun­da­tion, which sup­ports fam­ily lit­er­acy

    Clever

    Review: In Session by M.J. Rose
    5STARS
    What a clever book. Taking characters from different writers interacting with each other characters. On top of that the money goes to a charity Wish you well foundation of David Baldacci. It supports family literacy.
    Which I think is a great idea.
    Lee Child and Barry Eisler were chatting about Lee's Jack Reacher versus Barry's John Rain. Than M.J. Rose jumped in and said her Dr. Snow would like to shrink them. Later she asked Steve Berry's about his Cotton Malone character too.
    Dr. Snow runs into the characters at different places and shrinks them and it all works out. She meets Cotton Malone at his book store. Dr. Snow asks to meet John Rain in the park. Dr. Snow is in her office when she meets Jack Reacher but a bomb just went off and he climbed in to help. I liked all 3 short stories and would love to read more about them. I will look out for their books in the future.
    I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
