After a courtroom gunman threatens everything he holds dear, a Texas Ranger with a checkered past must choose between vengeance and family in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller.

Crawford Hunt wants his daughter back. Following the death of his wife four years ago, he fell into a downward spiral that knocked him down to deskwork and landed his five-year-old daughter Georgia in the custody of her grandparents. But now that Crawford has cleaned up his act and met the court's requirements, the fate of his family lies with Judge Holly Spencer.

Holly, ambitious and confident, must prove herself worthy of a permanent judgeship on the cusp of an upcoming election. Every decision is high-stakes, and despite Crawford's commitment to being a better father, Holly is wary of his past. But when a masked gunman barges into the courtroom during the custody hearing, Crawford reacts instinctively to save Holly's life.

But his heroism soon takes on the taint of recklessness. With the gunman still at large, Crawford uncovers a horrifying truth, and the cloud over him grows even darker as he considers vengeance. He quickly realizes that pursuing the killer will jeopardize his chances of gaining custody of his daughter and compromise Holly, 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.

    Just couldn’t get into this book. Finally made it but took longer than usual and was just ok. Very predictable and nothing special.

    I have loved all of Sandra Brown books in the past. This story is very slow moving and boring. The writing is very elementary.
  • Page turner

    I absolutely love Sandra Brown and every book I've read of hers but this one was a good sleep aid. Very slow, no suspense, characters were flat. Wouldn't recommend.

  • So-so read

    I've been a fan of Sandra Brown for a long time, but her past few books, including this one, have been disappointing. Her graphic sex scenes, and in particular her graphic sex dialogue are almost laughable. Who talks that way? I'm certainly no prude, but some of her phrases literally make me roll my eyes. Friction was a decent enough murder mystery, but probably my last book by Ms. Brown.
