Alone in New York, Michael fights the ultimate temptation Mar 11, 2007
Late afternoon in New York City. Michael sits in a small cafe, very much alone. He'd come to New York to finalize a business merger and leaves a failure. Papers unsigned, he has sixteen hours to fret how to break the news to the 250 employees whose jobs depended on this merger.
But Jasmine changes his focus. It shifts from his wife and family back home in Chicago, the employees whose future is shaky at best to the stunning blonde that has sought out his attention. Before she leaves, she hands him her phone number on the back of a business card. Back in his hotel room, the small slip of paper whispers to him in a voice he can't resist. When he dials the number, his descent into terror begins. He is drawn into New York's underworld, a universe his suburban lifestyle never imagined. Now all he wants to do is get on the plane and return home to his wife and children. Others want to make sure he never leaves.
"Blinded" is written in an unusual point of view--second person, present tense. This unique style drew me in from the first sentence and the pacing and unexpected twists and turns kept me turning the pages until late at night. Hightly recommended.
A challenging, eye-opening read! Mar 7, 2007
Travis Thrasher takes us where many Christian authors dare not tread: deep inside the struggles and temptations of men in our culture. Michael Grey has an extra night in New York City before he flies home the next day. After a business deal gone wrong, he decides to have a drink to try and take his mind off his problems. He is then approached by a beautiful blonde named Jasmine, who leaves her number and invites Michael to call her later. Suddenly Michael finds himself face to face with the strong temptation to spend time with this sensuous woman, despite the fact that he is married and has two children at home. What's the harm? Who will really know if he enjoys a drink or two with this gorgeous woman? One bad decision leads to a terrifying, unforgettable evening that will either ruin Michael or provide him with a much-needed spiritual wake-up call.
Travis Thrasher effectively portrays what it's like for men to struggle in our sexually charged culture. He doesn't just dwell on the problem, but he points us toward the solution that is found in a deep faith in God. Michael Grey is an intriguing character study waiting to happen, and it is frightening to witness Michael's progression as he quickly stumbles headfirst into temptation. This novel is real and powerful, and Thrasher's use of the second person narrative drops us right into the middle of Michael's struggle. Blinded is a challenging, eye-opening read that is both entertaining and enlightening. This is a must-read for Christian men and women. (From Christian Library Journal)
