I was lucky enough to be approved for a copy of this amazing book from Netgalley. Be prepared for one wild ride.
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?
Sandra Brown has been one of my favorite authors for years now. I always highly anticipate her new book each year. Never have I been let down by one of her new releases and Friction is no different.
This story tugged at my heart stings big time. I have such a soft spot for single father’s that actually give a damn about their child. There are not many of those out there these days and it’s a very refreshing thing to here.
Rough ranger Crawford Hunt only wants one thing, to regain custody of his daughter. Having given up custody temporarily after the loss of his wife, he is now struggling to get her back from his late wife’s parents. While he is having his day in court an interruption in the form of a masked gunman enters the court room. This one even will throw Crawford’s life into chaos. Leaving him to depend on the one woman that could have taken his daughter away forever, Judge Holly.
Holly was one of my favorite characters in this book. She had the air of a judge, but knew how to bend the rules while still staying in the lines. She proved to be a great asset to Crawford in his quest to find out what really went down in the court room that day.
A story that will takes you for a total thrill ride and leaves you breathless. Friction was an amazing read. Definitely worthy of 5 stars.
