Friction (A Legal Affairs Novel) Sawyer Bennett Release Date: October 27, 2015Synopsis: 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. Goodreads Link: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25530340-friction
Bennett delivers an outstanding new book for a brand new series. After reading the first couple pages I was quickly hooked and did not want to put it down. In fact I read it on my phone and walked around with it all day :-)
The book starts off with a prologue of Leary getting the job at the law firm. Then jumps to five years later which was a wonderful introduction to bits and pieces of her background.
One of the things that first jumped out at me was the characters. I liked them, loved them and couldn't wait for the story to start taking form. Leary was confident and a total badass in court. You can tell she worked her ass off to be where she was.
Reeve was her perfect match in and out of the courtroom. He just oozes confidence and charm. Although Leary knew what he looked liked she wasn't prepared for effect he would have on her when they first bump into each other. Right away these two have some strong sexual tension that neither can deny.
This story contains a lot of sex scenes and many take place in the office which was a little different. What I noticed about this book compared to other books I read by Bennett is that she didn't hold back on descriptions or dirty talk.
I really enjoyed them battling it out in court and keeping their relationship somewhat separate the case. The story was interesting and there wasn't a dull moment. I liked how Bennett picked the case I thought it was unique and very informative.
Overall not only did I enjoy the book but I loved the ending. Of course they get there HEA but it didn't end in marriage and babies. I was satisfied with them just taking the big step of moving in together.
I am looking forward to reading more of this series and meeting new characters in the law firm. I definitely recommend this book!
