Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling 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 and 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 die-hard 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.

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.
