Friction by Sawyer Bennett
Series: Legal Affairs, book # 8 but able to be read as a stand alone
Genre: contemporary romance
At the powerhouse law firm of Knight & Payne, winning comes first and ethics a distant second. Leary Michaels uses her female charms to daze opponents, and it’s always worked well—until now. On her most personal case yet, she finds herself going up against a defense attorney just as skilled, shameless, and seductive as she is.
Reeve Holloway has never met a woman as sure of her own sexuality, or as ruthless in wielding it, as Leary is. But he won’t be toyed with. What Leary starts, he’ll finish—in the courtroom, the bedroom, or any-damn-place he wants. The sex is uninhibited, electrifying, and absolutely against the rules. Reeve’s job is to ruin Leary’s case…even if it destroys her in the process and costs him the woman he’s come to love.
As always, Bennett starts with a bang. This book is no exception. She’s a one-sit author for me and she very rarely disappoints.
This was the series that I started with when I first got the kindle app and I have to say, is probably my top two favourite series by Sawyer.
Lots of hot and heavy stolen moments. As always, Sawyer layers her stories with the conflict, the emotions, the love, the lust, the twists and turns – nails it! I can’t say too much because I don’t want to give too much away but you don’t need to read the other books in the series to understand what’s going on here.
Leary is a ballbuster. She’s awesome. She’s perfectly flawed and committed to her job. She’s ruthless but she’s emotionally invested and personally connected to this case. Reeve is a divine character. He gives as good as he gets and I defy anyone not being able to fall in love with these characters.
I was given a copy of this book for my honest opinion.
