From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown comes a gripping story of family ties and forbidden attraction.
A Texas Ranger, relegated to deskwork due to past recklessness, petitions to regain custody of his five-year-old daughter, and his case is assigned to a family court judge who is as attractive as she is ambitious. When a masked gunman barges in during the custody hearing with his sights on the judge, the Ranger reacts instinctually and goes after him. But authorities apprehend the wrong man, and the real gunman remains unknown, at large, and a threat. Will this take-charge lawman jeopardize his chances of custody by going after the would-be assassin? And will this unlikely pair be able to deny the forbidden attraction building between them?
Texas Ranger Crawford Hunt will do anything for his daughter. But one decision he made will ruin everything for his goal in getting custody over Georgia. And that one moment involves Judge Holly Spencer. Will he be able to resist their undeniable chemistry or will he need to find a way in order to get both girls?

Judge Holly Spencer is running for district court judge. But her life was saved by a Texas Ranger who is also the person she’s presiding a case over. A moment leads to a next one. Will she be able to deny their attraction for each other or will she rule it out and race for her ambition?

We seriously need more thriller/suspense romance books. I direly need it. In all seriousness, I’ve read little novels that have balanced suspense and romantic scenes. So I greatly enjoy coming across these kinds of books.

The novel started off with a great start. You’ll know what I’m talking about right on the Prologue. Pretty early right? But dang was it eventful. There was an explosive – pun intended – right at the beginning chapters. And I wasn’t anticipating any of it. One thing this books is, unpredictable.

The story wasn’t just full of thrilling scenes, it was also full of sizzling hot moments for Crawford and Holly. Brief at first and then hard to miss later on. And *sigh*, the forbidden attraction with two people that clearly belongs together. The best.

Of course, each character wasn’t likable. There were characters that you’d like to strangle with frustration. In a good – not what you’re thinking – because they were made for you to hate them, or dislike them if you don’t like intense.

This is my first book for Sandra Brown but it certainly won’t by the last. Friction is a great book to start if you’re looking for another great author to one-click.
