35. Trouble by Jesse Kellerman

I've wanted to read something by Jesse Kellerman for awhile, so I grabbed Trouble off of my shelves. It was a good read, and I bit different in a good way. I give it a B+.

From Amazon:
Saving lives is Jonah Stem's job-but he usually does it at the hospital, not at 3 a.m. on the dark streets of Manhattan. When he impulsively intervenes to save a beautiful woman from a man menacing her with a knife, killing the attacker in the process, he is transformed from an overworked medical student to a hero in the media spotlight. The woman, Eve Gones, is profoundly grateful, and wants to show it. Before long, they're engaged in a wildly passionate love affair. An affair that Eve doesn't want to end. Ever.

It's clear to see that Mr. Kellerman takes after his famous parents. The suspense was built nicely and I thought that the story had interesting twists and turns. The story and words themselves were printed differently on the pages and in a way that added character. I look forward to reading more by Mr. Kellerman in the future.

I totally disappeared there for awhile, and I am not sure if that is a trend that is going to continue or not. I'm just not motivated to blog lately, and I have been sick for the past couple of weeks and still am. Hopefully it gets better soon~ I do miss everything and everyone!

I've read one of his other books and wasn't overly impressed by him. I think it's even harder because of how prolific his parents are!! Both authors which I enjoyed in the past!

I hope you are feeling better, Kristie. Take your time. When you are feeling more motivated to blog, we'll be here. :-) I haven't been around much these days either. It's been crazy busy and my health has been poor. I come home from work and all I want to do is lie down.

Anyway, about the book, I am glad you enjoyed it. I read this one awhile ago and liked it but it didn't make me eager to read more by him. I do love his parents' books though.

It's nice that he's inherited some writing talent!
Hope you're felling better (yes, I know I am weeks late ;))
