Series: Legal Affairs #8
Published by Montlake Romance on October 27th 2015
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.
I’m sure when Sawyer Bennett graduated from law school she never imagined using her degree to help write smoking hot erotica, and boy is Friction some kind of steamy.
First, you’ve got two likable, determined attorneys on opposing sides of a high stakes case. When you factor in calculated legal strategy, humor, an abundance of sexual tension, and orgasms galore—voilà!—you have a successful courtroom romance. In between all the panty melting escapades though, there’s a lot of legal preparation that goes on as the countdown to the trial begins. I know virtually nothing about the law other than what I see on The Good Wife or Law and Order so I was actually quite interested to learn about the legal proceedings.
While light on substance, this book is a drama-free quick read that I enjoyed.
