Crush: The Crush Novels, Book 1
The first in an action-packed, humor-filled mystery/thriller series perfect for fans of Lee Child's Jack Reacher
"A smart, noirish mystery loaded with clever dialogue and vivid characters. The Crush series is as good as it gets."
— Kirkus (starred review)
Caleb Rush, a. k. a. Crush, is the toughest, coolest bodyguard/bouncer in Los Angeles, a man who lives strictly by his own moral code, which doesn't exactly hew to the standards of US law. When Amelia Trask, the wild daughter of a scruples-free billionaire tycoon, comes to Crush for help, his quiet life roars into overdrive, and he has to use his wits, brawn, martial-arts training, and knowledge of the Russian mafia to stay alive and clean up the mess that young Amelia has created. Crush is a rollicking, page-turning ride through LA, full of action, suspense, memorable characters, and a sly wit.

Caleb Rush, a. k. a. Crush, is the toughest, coolest bodyguard/bouncer in Los Angeles, a man who lives strictly by his own moral code, which doesn't exactly hew to the standards of US law. When Amelia Trask, the wild daughter of a scruples-free billionaire, comes to Crush for help, his quiet life roars into overdrive. He'll have to use his wits, brawn, martial-arts training, and knowledge of the Russian mafia to clean up the mess young Amelia has created—and try not to get himself killed in the process.
Full of action, suspense, memorable characters, and a sly wit, Crush is "as slick as a switchblade with a pearl handle" (Lee Child, New York Times–bestselling author of the Jack Reacher novels).
