A man who should know better. A much younger teenager. No way should there be any kind of romance between them. Yet from the moment 14-year-old Adrian met Nick, she was crazy about him. There must be something she can say or do. Some way she can show him this is not just a crush. What can she do? What won’t she do?

Romantic obsession has harrowing consequences in The Crush, a suspense thriller starring Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride), Jennifer Rubin (The Doors) and Alicia Silverstone (Clueless, Blast From The Past) in her breakthrough role. Elwes plays Nick, at first flattered by Adrian’s flirtation, then gripped with outright fear. Because what Adrian wants, Adrian gets. If she can’t have her Mr. Right, no one can.
