Good book but mediocre narrator/production
Sandra Brown lived up to expectations with her latest novel but I found that the narrator spoilt it for me. Stephen Lang's Crawford Hunt sounded like a recovering alcoholic/caveman. The other characters were well depicted. I also found numerous instances during the narration where there had been editing, with the narrator's timbre suddenly changing and breaking the flow. A poor audiobook production, Hachette Audio, sorry!

Pretty good easy "read"
What did you love best about Friction?
It was a good story. Not very complex but an easy "read". It was predicable, not a lot of twists and turns in the plot.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The main character reminded me of Timothy Oliphant's character in the FX series Justified.
Did Stephen Lang do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
He did a decent job of the voices although the production was poor. There were obvious times that the editor had cut in different readings because the tone of his voice would abruptly change. These unfortunately were done in mid script and not during natural breaks in the story.

Entirely incredible in the true sense of the word
Would you try another book from Sandra Brown and/or Stephen Lang?
Nothing about this story was believable, particularly the motives and reactions of the characters. Very disappointing.

great story line, can we lay off the sex?
i really liked the story line, I am just getting tired of having to hunt around to find books with out a ton of sex. i am not against sexual tension between characters or implied sex, but can I get a great book with out bulging throbbing pants and heaving breasts?

Where does Friction rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
If you are a long time fan of S.B. as I am, you will recognize her classic romance/mystery stye of writing in this story. This is not her best, but it will not disappoint. As always, S.B. has a last minute twist before the story ends.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Friction?
When Crawford has any dialogue with Georgia. She will grab your heart.
What does Stephen Lang bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
My fave readers are Victor Slezak, and Jonathan Davis. Check out their reads of S.B. works. Natalie Ross, Enid Graham ,and Stephen do a good job, but they didn't get the top S.B. stories to read. Stephen did bring our hero to life as he is a good actor and can read well.
Any additional comments?
If you like this story, see Sandra Brown's Stand Off, Smoke Screen, and newest best, Mean Streak. These are not to be missed.

Just not realistic, edges on ridiculous
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
It's ok but there are better stories out there
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
Narrator was ok, the voice over corrections were really bad.
