From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown comes a gripping story of family ties and forbidden attraction. Crawford Hunt wants his daughter back. Following the death of his wife four years ago, Crawford, a Texas Ranger, fell into a downward spiral that left him relegated to deskwork and with his five-year-old daughter Georgia in the custody of her grandparents. But Crawford has cleaned up his act, met all the court imposed requirements, and now the fate of his family lies with Judge Holly Spencer. Holly, ambitious and confident, temporarily occupies the bench of her recently deceased mentor. With an election upcoming, she must prove herself worthy of making her judgeship permanent. Every decision is high-stakes. Despite Crawford's obvious love for his child and his commitment to being an ideal parent, Holly is wary of his checkered past. Her opinion of him is radically changed when a masked gunman barges into the courtroom during the custody hearing. Crawford reacts instinctually, saving Holly from a bullet. But his heroism soon takes on the taint of recklessness. The cloud over him grows even darker after he uncovers a horrifying truth about the courtroom gunman and realizes that the unknown person behind the shooting remains at large . . .and a threat. Catching the real culprit becomes a personal fight for Crawford. But pursuing the killer in his customary diehard fashion will jeopardize his chances of gaining custody of his daughter, and further compromise Judge Holly Spencer, who needs protection not only from an assassin, but from Crawford himself and the forbidden attraction between them. FRICTION will keep you on the edge of your seat with breathtaking plot twists and the unforgettable characters that make Sandra Brown one of the world's best-loved authors. It is an extraordinary novel about the powerful ties that bind us to the ones we love and the secrets we keep to protect them.… (mere)

This may be the first CD book I listened to and wish I had gotten a book instead. I just did not like the narrator's voice. The mystery and story was good. This was my first Sandra Brown "book". ( )

DNF! I read 230 pages of the book and found myself just disliking the story and the character more and more. I especially didn't like Crawford Hunt the main asshole, eh I mean the main character. Personally I found him to be unstable, violent and extremely jealous and possessive but apparently judge Holly likes that. I don't. 
 
But enough is enough, now I will find something better to read...

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!> ( )

My first Sandra Brown novel and I was not disappointed. I’ve never been a big reader of mystery and suspense until the last two years. Nothing makes me happier than not being able to solve the mystery. This is an author I will read again. ( )

I do enjoy a good Sandra Brown book. For those of you not familiar with Sandra Brown, this is a cross between a suspense, crime and romance. It certainly kept me turning those pages to see what would happen next. There are a few plot lines that twist together very well and tell a realistic story.

Crawford Hunt, Texas Ranger, arrived to court hoping to regain custody of his daughter. He had given temporary custody to his in-laws after the death of his wife. His father-in-law, who never liked him, blamed him for the death of their daughter and claimed he was a danger to Georgia. While waiting for the Judge, Holly Spencer, to render he decision, a masked gunman bursts into the courtroom, shoots and kills the baliff and is bearing down on Holly. Crawford hurtles the rail and covers her body with his own. As the gunman takes aim, he kicks him in the knee, throws him off balance and the gunman flees followed closely by Crawford. When the gunman is killed on the roof by a Sniper from the SWAT team, an investigation must take place. For personal reasons, Crawford is being investigated and it is insinuated that he hired the gunman. This just gives his father-in-law more ammunition. Crawford and Holly, thrown together by this tragedy, become involved and she must recuse herself from the custody case. As Crawford continues to investigate who and why someone tried to kill Holly, surprises and turns of events occur. This was a great read.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, which did not affect my comments here. ( )

Another solid Sandra Brown mystery with a side of romance. Texas Ranger seeks custody of Georgia and while in the court, a gunman comes in and begins shooting. Who was the intended target and why? Feelings for the judge jeopardize many things in this tale - the custody battle, the judge's seat on the bench, their reputations, the safety of others. ( )

The two stalwart highway patrolmen guarding he barricade stared at her without registering any emotion, but because of the media blitz of the past few days, she knew they recognized her and that, in spite of their implacable demeanor, they were curious to know why Judge Holly Spencer was angling to get closer to the scene of a bloodbath.
