Lifeguard Author:James Patterson, Andrew Gross The danger isn't in the water. As a lifeguard in Florida resort, Ned Kelly meets the woman of his dreams. It feels perfect except that she prefers caviar and Manolo Blahniks, and he is used to burgers and flip flops. — So when Ned's cousin offers him a rich deal, Ned can't turn him down. It is just a fast break and enter. The risk is ... more »high, and the reward even greater - $5 million.« less
The story is simple, GOOD GUY (although he has a bad side...he is a thief) meets Tess, a hottie on the beach (we later learn she is not what she seems...well you can guess that..no one is perfect). Anyway, life couldn't get any better....you have been offered an opportunity to make quick (although illegal) money and get the girl of your dreams....when, the unexpectant happens (all your friends who are involved in the heist are murdered, as well as the chick you have fallen for) and you are framed for their deaths. Now the story begins, who killed your friends and your lover and why? While Ned Kelly struggles to find out the truth about who is behind his trouble, he meets another woman, Ellie, a FBI agent who specializes in Art to help him discover the truth. As a host of other characters and villians are revealed, you will find yourself rooting that Ned's luck changes soon. I suggest that you give this easy and quick read a chance and enjoy. There are some interesting revelations and plots.

I had tears in my eyes at the end page in the book.......HOORAH what a great ending..... I hope everyone who reads this book enjoys it as much as I did..
I just recently started reading James Patterson. My fater was a real fan so thought I'd try reading one. The first one I read was Swimsuit and it left me wanting more. I really enjoyed his style of writing. Lifeguard was done equally well. Action, romance, mystery. It has it all. Now, I just need to fiqure out my next James Patterson book to read...
Ned Kelly has met the woman of his dreams. His cousin has offered to cut him on a deal worth a million dollars. A simple break-and-enter. His dreams are all on the verge of coming true. But on the night of the heist something goes horribly wrong and Ned finds his life spinning out of control.
Not a masterpiece but it was a nice escapist read. Ned Kelly was a likeable character, the female FBI agent was rather farfetched. The villain rather snotty and annoying. The plot was enjoyable and kept moving at a nice clip. A good book for when you dont want to read anything too heavy.
