Additional Information

What happens when a suicidal paramedic falls in love with an ambulance chasing reporter?

Brian is going through a rough patch in his life. His wife, Amber, has divorced him and is remarrying a rich wall street
hedge fund manager. His boss hates him, his partner tolerates him, and he likes to stand on the ledge ten stories
up, bottle in hand.

Four years ago his infant son passed away in his crib sending his life into a tail spin.

All he has left is saving lives, and saving them on his terms. That's not enough.

Enter Brooklyn, a fiery red headed stringer, who works the overnight selling video and stills to the New York media and
she's had a long standing crush on Brian.

She's out to prove that a paramedic isn't the only one who can save a life.

Let me start by saying this, I am a Paramedic, and this
is very close to the real thing, very close.
From the banter among the crews and everyone around
them, to the huge egos Paramedics have, to the calls and
the emergency driving issues and problems, to the tattoos
that many EMS/Paramedics have.
You will ride with EMS/Paramedics in NY, from call to call
and look into their private lives, from divorce to new romances
to child birth.
You will meet...
Brian Sheahan, Paramedic and main character.
Mel, Paramedic and Brian's partner.
Amber, Paramedic and Brian's ex wife, and still friend.
Beth, Paramedic and Amber's partner.
Brooklyn, news stringer and Brian's new love interest.
Along with many many others.
You will watch them deal with Hospital Diversion, heavy
equipment bags, O2 bottles, D-fib/Life Packs, ABC-CPR,
ET Tubes, Decompression, IV's,GSW's, car accidents
and a 3 alarm fire... Read more
An intriguing book. I read in the author's notes that it was originally written as a screenplay. That makes sense of the way the book unfolds - an action-packed love story strung onto a classic three-act film structure. But as a novel, the story also works, and I really enjoyed getting to know these vibrant characters. While some of the plot points were a tiny bit predictable, the writing is solid and the story is eminently believable. However, where this book really shines is in the vivid descriptions from the POV of Brian, the main protagonist, as he goes about his daily business of (literally) saving lives. He's an EMT in some of the grittiest parts of New York and I was gripped by his perspective, his gallows humor and his life-saving techniques. The private diaries opening up each chapter were very effective. I hope to see much more of Brian. This character has a lot to offer the world.
Trauma Junkie shows some of the exciting and dangerous aspects of being a NY paramedic—stories that are usually reserved for the FDNY an NYPD. For example, stories of drug addicts trying to obtain narcotics by any means necessary, whether it’s feigning seizure or physically harming medics, which means that medics sometimes need to wait for police escorts.

While there were exciting moments and emotional moments, there were several ways this story could have been improved. Hobbs often uses jargon without explaining it. The jargon itself is good because it makes me believe that the hero of the story, Brian, knows what he is talking about. But the author, Hobbs, needs to explain the terms initially. For example, in one section he used a term I didn’t know three times and it wasn’t until the third time he used it that he explained it. Other times he just didn’t explain at all or if he had explained it earlier, by the time I got to it again I’d... Read more
