Sudden Setup is a fantastic romantic suspense by Barb Han. Ms. Han has delivered a well-written book that will keep you on the edge of your seat and loaded it with a outstanding cast of characters. Holden has been on the run and hiding for two years after his father and girlfriend were murdered. While hiding on a far corner of his dad's friend's ranch, he's a witness to an attempt on Ella Butler's life. Ella and Holden's story is loaded with suspense, bits of humor, spice and action. I enjoyed this book from cover to cover and look forward to reading more from Barb Han in the future. Sudden Setup is book 1 of the Crisis: Battle Barge Series but can easily be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I read a print copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

She can't go back until they fund out who and why. But her attraction to Holden may be clouding her judgment.

But Holden can't risk her. Everyone he loves dies and he won't chance that. As the danger ratchets up their desire to find answers and maybe have a chance with one another does as well.

This book will not disappoint! The two main characters are people you want to get to know better and Barb does a great job of building the attraction between the two while they solve the mystery. Since both have different people trying to kill them, the mystery is complex and keeps you engaged until the end.

Barb does it again, I have read her books because let's face it, I am obsessed with her work. Barb knows how to keep her readers interested and want more. Sudden Setup is no different. It is very hard to find anything negative to say. It's also very hard to decide who is your book boyfriend when she releases another book and you fall in love with another character. Sudden Setup will have you scream for more. You know that old saying "You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream"? Well in this case "You scream, I scream, we all scream for more." Sudden Setup is a sit on the edge of you chair shaking your leg, and saying OMG OMG OMG kind of book. I so recommend this one to all of you.

4 1/2 STARS! An exciting kick-off to Barb Han's latest series! We're quickly thrust into the middle of the action as Holden rescues Ella and their stories begin to unfold. The mystery is kept alive throughout the book with us following snippets of clues to try to figure out alongside them who the immediate threat is to her, and to find out once and for all who set him up for a fall two years ago. The characters are easily likable and fairly well developed. The plot keeps us guessing up until the end! Accidentally witnessing a murder attempt is not a position Holden Crawford wanted to be put in, but once it happens, he can't refuse helping the victim ... even though he recognizes her as being from one of the wealthiest families in Cattle Barge, TX and it could put him in the spotlight. Holden has been on the run for two years now for crimes he was accused of but didn't commit ... he's living his life under the radar and without contact with anyone, but for this woman, he's going to have to make an exception! Ella Butler is woozy and unsure when she wakes up in a cabin with a strange man. He's not super forthcoming with answers, but he did rescue her when he didn't have to, so he can't really be a bad guy ... can he? When danger rears it's ugly head again when she tries to go to the authorities, he finds himself circling back to help her again and taking her on the run with him. As the story of his past comes out, they set out to find answers that will free both of their torments.
