RS Review: Friction (Hard Cover)

I've finished "Friction" by Sandra Brown.

Product Description

From #1 New York Times bestselling 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 desk work and with his five-year-old daughter Georgia in the custody of her grandparents. But Crawford has cleaned up his act, 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 instinctively, 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.

My Review:

Storyline:  After the death of his wife four years ago Crawford Hunt's life went downhill and he was demoted to desk work and lost custody of his five year old daughter Georgia to her grandparents.  He has finally cleaned up his act, finished all the required court acts and now his family's fate lies with Judge Holly Spencer.

Holly is wary of Crawford's past even though she can tell how much he loves his little girl and his total commitment to be the perfect parent.  Her opinion changes when a masked gunman enters the room and shoots her deputy sheriff and Crawford saves her.

Characters:  Holly is a strong person and doesn't really show her emotions until Crawford bullies her one night and she finally breaks down.  She is determined to prove herself as the right candidate for the judge's position permanently.

Romance:  I didn't think Crawford and Holly really got to know each other that well except for up close and personal.  You could feel the heat and attraction between them and it was hilarious when Crawford would tell Holly he wanted to get into her pants every time they were alone and she would defend herself against him.

Villain:  The villain was very bold and arrogant!
