She plays with him all night, leading him from one night club to another, and leading him from one troubled situation to another. He has to make a choice...Is the stranger more important than his family?

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)
