    One thought on “The Crush”

    1. 3 STARSI don t know why I didn t enjoy this one because at first sight, it all looks good a grumpy ex cop, a strong heroine, a unique and interesting storyline, great writingI can t really pinpoint what bothered me Lack of excitement, lack of tension, I guess The main characters seemed apathetic somehow.I don t know It just didn t reach me This doesn t mean this book is bad It just wasn t my favorite.

    2. Between 3 and 4 stars and as it is SB will up it to 4 This one was lacking the usual intensity of a Sandra Brown book Ok there was one moment where I literally jumped in my seat But for some reason, the 2 characters did not endear themselves to me as much as some of her other characters did Contract killer Ricky Lozada is on trial and Dr Rennie Newton is on his jury Bringing the same dedication she displays as a surgeon to this job, she delivers a verdict of not guilty and discovers she has a ne [...]

    3. The Crush is a standalone romantic suspense thriller novel written by Sandra Brown It features an incredibly engaging beginning most obsessive stalker thrillers are right up my ally and I loved where this one was going.cially when said stalker gifts our mysterious heroine with a gift she can t return and one that lands her in the spotlight of a murder investigation Unfortunately, I found the middle ish parts quite long and dull in my opinion I wish I had skimmed them to be honest I could have go [...]

    4. Dr Rennie Newton, a skilled surgeon, is the foreman of the jury that acquits psychotic professional assassin Ricky Lozada of murder because of reasonable doubt Unfortunately for Rennie, Lozada becomes infatuated with the pretty doctor during the trial and convinces himself that she returns his affections So 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 su [...]

    5. 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

    6. See of my reviews on The YA Kitten Whaaaaaaat A YA reviewer like me reading and reviewing a romantic suspense novel Yup See, I was hiding from my niece in a cupboard of a room after she started throwing rocks and became too much for me to handle Mom found me and handed me this book Give it a try, she said You ll like it, she said WRONG, MAMA LLAMA Quoting my exact words to her, The Crush made me pop a lady boner of rage The last time I read any of her bodice rippers and romantic suspense novels [...]

    7. Dr Rennie a jaded doctor meets Wick Threadgill a jaded cop have issues they are working thru, her with her past and father and him with his dead brother or actually issues they should be working on but are avoiding and the evil Lozada haunts them both, separately and together There were a couple of twists that I was not expecting Lozada killing her horses and the cop scuffle shooting that was all staged at the end I like all of Sandra Brown s booksI know they are predictable we always know the e [...]

    8. Big fan of Sandra Brown here but this book was a huge disappointment The heroine is a huge fail She is one of the most annoying heroines I ve ever come across, one who did not deserve either the reader s or the hero s attention even less his love The writer tells us that this woman is a trauma surgeon who worked all over the world , a former wild child turned Mother Teresa, but what we actually see on page is a flat piece of cardboard whose only memorable characteristic is that of a spoiled bitc [...]

    9. This suspense novel reads like a Harlequin Romance gone worse I didn t say bad because they are already bad Laced with only to be heard in smaltzy movie one liners, the book is so predictable from the first chapter that you may actually think there is a twist at the end there isn t Crush is about a relationship between the broken cop and a troubled trauma surgeon and their banning together to fight an evil killer It s kind of like a Bugs Bunny episode without the humor and animation.

    10. I heard some buzz about this Sandra Brown and since my library had it checked in, I grabbed it Such a good book I soo love Sandra Brown novels They are meaty, well told told and I love how the plot is dense You need a dense plot I think for a novel to really stand out, and Sandra Brown novels certainly do.This novel is a little different from other others by the author in that there was no plot twist or great reveal Which is fine by me, the story stood on it s own and didn t need it It s just th [...]

    11. If you have never read a book by this author, then it is a good read But, I feel like I have read this same character s story a few dozen times Even the ending felt familiar It was still a good read Lots of action, and I happen to like these characters, so I did not mind.I don t care for the sexist tones in this book I m all for an alpha male, but I prefer one who doesn t violate his partner s boundaries Rennie tells Wick several times that she is not interested, but he continues pursuing her, e [...]

    12. Dr Rennie Newton s life turns upside down after serving as foreman on a jury during a murder trial Evidence against the defendant, Ricky Lozada, is circumstantial and he is soon found not guilty As Rennie gets back into her usual routine, she finds Lozada is sending her flowers and calling her at home When a co worker is murdered at the hospital, evidence points at Lozada Wick Threadgill tried to get the goods on Lozada a couple of years ago when his brother was murdered On leave from the Fort W [...]

    13. She was the forewoman of the jury who acquitted a dangerous killer due to lack of evidence, now he s returning the favor by developing a twisted crush on herThis is the first book by Ms Brown I ve read so far and I was pleasantly surprised by how it turned out These first reads are hit and miss and this one was definitely a hit.Nicely developed plot, well executed and well paced, despite a few slow moments here and there Though the romance between Rennie and Wick lacked a few sparks, I absolutel [...]

    14. I finished this book since writing the below that is to say, I finished with this book It is one of the rare books I really couldn t finish readingward the end, I realized I just really didn t care what happened so I moved on.I m not quite finished with this book, but so far it reads like just about every cop show I ve ever seen on television only worse I m not feeling much sympathy for the main character, Rennie I like the renegade ex cop, Wick, and his former partner, Oren, and the bad guy , L [...]

    15. Absolutely loved this book SB never ceases to amaze me She surprised me with all the things that were uncovered toward the end of the story Things that made me go O Crap , Are you serious , and just Wow Very good mystery

    16. Never did this But I want to try writing a review like rant bit by bit while I m reading view spoiler PAGE 196 480 So smarty Doctor Rennie got mad as hell and couldn t report the polices fast enough for watching over her, yet completely forgot the fact that she only knew about them from Lozada The polices indeed went over the line, although understandable since she s a suspect What did she expect That the polices rang her door bell and announced, Oh hey, we will keep an eye on you You know, in [...]

    17. Ah well, the beginning was pretty interesting And the rest of the plot had spikes of interesting and annoying as it progressed I would have given it a 2 stars, but I am just feeling generous because of the final coup they staged Dr.Rennie Newton s image was alluring with all the secrets in past I didn t like Wick s what a stupid name character He was too sleazy for a cop I mean, I understand spying on a possible suspect, but to keep sighing and catching breaths when she is changing her clothes Y [...]

    18. Riveting for sure Sandra Brown is such a great author and her books are always so fun to read Great twists and turns in this one.

    19. Muy floja, inveros mil y a ratos aburrida.Esperaba m s de esta historia.Me ha resultado inconsistente Es una de esas historias en las que la autora trata de describir unos personajes que despu s no cumplen con esa descripci n Para que perder el tiempo dici ndonos lo inteligente que es la protagonista cuando durante todo el libro no hace nada m s que tonter as Si hubiese reaccionado como una persona real, no hubiese habido historia, el malo no hubiese tenido ni una sola oportunidad, pero la autor [...]

    20. The Crush was a great story I ve only read a Sandra Brown book once before and I do not recall being disappointed, and for The Crush I felt the same.Set in Texas, the story is about a surgeon, Dr Rennie Newton, whom having acquitted a well known murderer, Ricky Roy Lozada,becomes the object of his unwanted affection As a result, two officers, Oren Wesley and Wick Threadgill, of the Fort Worh PD, are on the hunt for Lozada, who proves to be a slick and smooth criminal He leaves no traces of his c [...]

    21. Sandra Brown never fails to deliver an edge of the seat suspense thriller and The Crush is no exception SB is my go to author for romantic suspense and she rarely disappoints Since the baddie, Lozada, is known from the beginning, the plot revolves around the cat and mouse game he is playing with heroine, Dr Rennie Newton and the hero, on leave cop, Wick Threadgill.Lozada is a contract killer that, literally, does not leave a trace at any of his crime scenes Rennie was on a jury and voted to acqu [...]

    22. As usualI give my opinion of a book A synopsis of the story will give you a better explanation of the book.I give THE CRUSH my book has a different cover 4.5 stars Great story I like the way Sandra Brown brings you into a story The further you read, the you understand what s going on I know that s how most stories are, but she reveals the characters and their story like peeling away layers of an onion.a sweet onion I like the two main characters in this book They are very human and to me, likea [...]

    23. This was a phenominal read From back cover Notorious contract killer Ricky Lozada is on trial and Dr Rennie Newton is on his jury Bringing the same dedication she displays as a surgeon to this job, she delivers a verdict of not guilty and discovers she has a new admirer Days after Lozada s release, one of Rennie s professional rivals is brutally murdered Although Lozada s dark shadow looms over the case, Rennie becomes the prime suspectwhile Lozada stalks her and grows and obsessed with having [...]

    24. A study in how quickly things can spiral out of control in a life There were some bits that didn t ring quite right with me eg the 20 year thing don t want to spoil the plot, but it was a fast paced romantic suspense and I particularly liked Wick

    25. Fantastic bookI could hardly put it down Sandra Brown is the best writer in the mystery thriller category Enjoyed every book I have of hers.

    26. Picked it up at my library they were doing blind date with a book got it home and wrapped it read it and really liked it the first time I read Sandra Brown
