When Dr. Rennie Newton is summoned to jury duty, she brings to the courtroom the same level of competence that she displays in the operating room. Her commitment to precision compels her to deliver a not guilty verdict in the murder case against notorious contract killer Ricky Lozada. It will be the most regrettable decision in her life...because Rennie's trial with Lozada doesn't end with his acquittal. Her carefully structured life begins to crumble when a rival colleague is brutally slain. Lozada's menacing shadow looms over the murder, but it's Rennie the investigators focus on as a prime suspect. The privacy she has cultivated and protected at all costs is violated by the police as well as Lozada. And when he begins an earnest courtship, it becomes terrifyingly clear that he is obsessed with having her. Wick Threadgill is a detective on indefinite leave from the Fort Worth PD, who has his own, personal agenda for the contract killer. Temperamental, bitter, and driven by loyalty and love, Wick is determined to destroy Lozada. In order to defeat Lozada -- and save their lives -- Rennie and Wick form an uneasy alliance. Mistrustful of each other, they know only one thing with absolute certainty, when this killer strikes, they won't see it coming. The Crush will take you on a tortuous path through a twisted sociopath's eerie obsession, a haunted man fragile hopes for redemption, and a woman's heart as she struggles to face the greatest fear -- to open herself to love.… (mer)

In Sandra Brown's The Crush, Dr. Rennie Newton is on Ricky Lozada's jury. Lozada is a well-known hit man. However, the jury decides to vote not guilty. Soon it appears that she has a new admirer. One of her peers, also a rival, is murdered, and Rennie is a suspect. Then she becomes stalked by Lozado. Wick Threadgill is a detective that is after the killer and soon Wick and Rennie join forces.

So well-written that when i picked it up I did not want to set it down until I was finished and satisfied with the ending. I was thrilled that I was left to wonder how they would capture Lozado. and the characters were so wonderful. They would appear one way but then you saw the layers as the story progressed.

I must say that Brown was able to create a villain who was easy to hate. From the trial on, he was a character that I loved to hate.

I feel that if the reader is looking for a thrilling adventure, this is an excellent to try.

Read this book based on a recommendation (Blind Date with a Book) and thoroughly enjoyed it. I haven't read a book by Sandra Brown in....over a decade, I think, and forgot how much I liked her books.

This story includes a brilliant but emotionally damaged surgeon who is being stalked by a delusional, cunning psychopath that has "a crush" on her. Enter the charming -but haunted- cop who comes to her rescue. (my current book crush ♥)

This was a good short story. I don't mind short stories, even very short ones like this, but I felt that it was lacking just a little bit to bump up my response to it.

Still a good piece to introduce you to the author, I'm sure. Just wasn't the story for me, I think. ( )
