after his acquital Lozada decides to pursue a relationship with Rennie He sends her flowers, stalks her, and goes so far as to do her the favor of murdering a rival doctor Rennie becomes a suspect in the murder and Detective Oren Wesley instead of doing any investigation whatsoever starts a campaign of surveillance and harassment to convict Rennie For assistance Oren calls in his suspended former partner, Detective Wick Threadgill Here the book becomes a cliche romance novel Wick of course is overwhelmingly attracted to Rennie who of course is a cold fish because of a difficult past The assassin Lozada becomes enraged with Wick s attentions to Rennie and decides to take action Though Brown is a skilled writer this is a completely predictable book with no surprises In addition, the characters are not particularly likable Wick is an an arrogant dude whose major goal is to have sex with Rennie Oren is a lazy police officer who makes no attempt to find the real killer and Rennie though a littlesympathetic than the guys is two dimensional and hard to care about.If you re a hard core romance fan you might like this book Otherwise, skip it.You can follow my reviews at Fun read

much as I love Texas, Galveston beach SUCKS from man o wars to oil spills to muddy water beach silt Ironically 500 yards out is sparkling blue water that flows into the Caribbean.Anyhoo, the H s insta lust triggers his defense mechanism and he even punches out his old partner for suggesting the heroine may be guilty of anything Ice Princess has a very bad and very salacious backstory which is why she is the shutdown Ice Princess dedicated to saving lives I don t see long term happiness with these two, but for now they re good.Warning Besides the ick backstory which involves a bad girl reputation and a bad father no, there is no incest but still some unsavory issues animals are harmed in the story Nothing on page graphic, but be aware if this is a trigger Between 3 and 4 stars and

make the mark for me is because I KNEW who the bad guy was In her other books you re kept guessing until practically the end of the book Well, at least I am She had meant trouble for him from the start, and she would mean trouble to him from here on She hadn t wanted to like Wick Threadgill, but she did As with Ms Brown s books, sex scenes are few and far between but they are HOT when they happen In spite of her reserve, he could imagine her flushed with arousal He asked her if she liked hairy chests and she showed him how much she liked his He hadn t had to coax a response from her, either Two strokes of his thumb and her nipple was hard, ready to be drawn into his mouth Overall an enjoyable read The Crush is a standalone romantic suspense thriller novel written by Sandra Brown

There aren t much tension in The Crush that keeps me in suspense throughout the story The psychotic killer tries very hard to be creepy, but fails to scare me The heroine is a drop dead gorgeous surgeon with an impressive resume Unfortunately, at certain crucial moments, she loses her common sense and I can t help roll my eyes Not SB s best
