Publisher's Summary

Joanna Price is a city girl with the perfect life. She loves her job as a book editor, she just married Liam, high-profile, best-selling author and the man of her dreams, and she's headed to the Caribbean to enjoy two weeks of paradise for her luxurious honeymoon.
Connor Duffield is a gruff, grumpy rancher from the Midwest. He is a country boy who has a no-nonsense approach to life, more scars than he'd like to admit, and he hates city girls.
So it's just a misfortune they have to sit next to each other for a six-hour plane ride. Even more so when their flight is caught in the perfect storm and Joanna wakes up stranded on a desert island with Connor, the very man she hoped she would never have to see again.
Why are they alone on this forsaken island? What happened to Joanna's husband?
When her dream honeymoon turns into a hilarious tropical nightmare, Joanna's first thought is survival. However, she and Connor will quickly discover just how boring paradise can be. As the days turn to weeks, and then months, this mismatched pair will have to learn how to coexist and how to resist the sparkles of an attraction they weren't prepared to feel.
When they are finally rescued, will Joanna's marriage be saved as well, or will the life she knew and loved be in ruins?

Five Crushing Stars!

What an AMAZING story! I LOVED it!

I believe a good romance should take you away from the everyday, evoke emotions, and make you fall in love with the characters, and that's actually what A Sudden Crush did! I was rooting for Connor and Anna from the very beginning!

The plot was captivating, with lot's of humor, and a little heartache, but with a heart warming HEA. (The story is told from Joanna's POV.) I was hooked from the first page, and hanging on to each chapter. From the very moment Connor and Joanna met on the plane, their personalities just did not mix, so when they ended up marooned on an island together, it was funny picturing these two going from hostile, to co-existing to actually getting along. For being the only two people of the island, they eventually made a good team.

Don't want to spoil anymore of the plot, but I will say following Joanna throughout the story is like an emotional roller coaster with lot's of ups and downs. I actually laughed and cried with this story!

Not sure if this is Tami Leah Lacy's first audiobook she's narrated, but she did an OUTSTANDING job! All the characters sounded great, and she delivered on all of different the emotions. Kudos!

I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review, and honestly loved the story. I definitely recommend this story for any romantic at heart! It was excellent!

Romance in the jungle

This is a nice entertaining chick-lit romance in a not-so-believable setting. The author chose a setting in a desert Island after a plain crash and how everything turns out after the crash, is not very realistic.

However, I enjoyed the story very much and found it entertaining and amusing. If it wasn't for the author's good writing skills, her sense of humor and the narrator's talent, it wouldn't be a book I would have listened to for long. It's actually funny how this could be done and I'm very impressed!

The charaters develop very good along the way - Joanna and Connor are opposites, but as the story is developing they learn to understand each other - it's a challenge to get there - and again - it's not new, but if you're looking for a light, funny read, this is the book!

The narrator Tami Leah Lacy is exellent in bringing this story to life. Her voice is pleasant and she does a great performance. Shes also is very good at making animal sounds - like you were there with them in the jungle. For a first audiobook I'm sure she wanted this to sound as the 7th book she's narrated.
