A Five Star Review of my novel, Trapped.
TRAPPED-LOCKED IN SYNDROME, December 27, 2013 By gayle pace "May A Rainbow Shine Down On You!" This review is from: Trapped (Brier Hospital Series) (Paperback) REVIEW This is a fantastic medical thriller. The author made this story real. You feel that you are totally in the character's world. The characters go through a lot of real life experiences. The author is an M.D. so I'm sure he had a lot of real life experiences to draw on. The characters have the same emotions and feeling we have. Fear, Secrets, Flaws Hopes and Desires. Just because they help to save lives doesn't mean that they are beyond bad things happening to them. Dr. Michael Cooper, director of the NICU meets a nurse Lisa Cooke, who works in the neonatal until also. They drew a spark at once, this wasn't a good spark though. Lisa learns to see Mike for himself and not the one he reminds her of. It definitely wasnt' love at first sight. They do find love. Even working together day by day under very stressful circumstances, the passion is so intense. Their road to romance is far from smooth. It's full of ruts. Mike was in a terrible accident, fighting for his life while Lisa fights to save her unborn baby.Mike has what is called "locked up syndrome". Michael is in a tomb in his own body, trapped, and not sure he wants to live. The author gives the reader a close up look at what medical and hospital life is all about. Then they go home and have different problems to face there. Lisa and Mike lean on each other during the bad things that are happening to them. They learn to trust each other unconditionally. Then there are the two mothers not at all helping matters.The love story is a down to earth love between two everyday people, not all filled with glitz and glimmer. The author has done a talented job of putting medical information into the fictional book. The author had me hooked from page one. I couldn't put the book down. It was so captivating. Dr. Gold knew his facts and put them down into fiction. Sometimes a hard feat to master and yet make it seem real instead of fiction. I can't wait to red book 2. If it's anything like this one, then there's another good book from this author. If you like medical suspense with a little clean romance then please don't hesitate to pick up this book. You won't be sorry unless you miss out. This will go on my shelf as one of my TBR again. A Keeper. I would give this book 5 LOCKS I was given a complimentary copy of TRAPPED from the author , Lawrence W. Gold, M.D. for my personal opinion. No other compensation was given.
