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.
It's no secret that I adore every single Sawyer Bennett novel I pick up, but there are some times when you pick up a new one and it completely takes you by surprise. You're drawn into the world, swept up in the romance, and extraordinarily pleased when you reach the end.
This was one of those times.
Leary is representing someone she knows on a case that means everything to her. She'll stop at nothing to win, including throwing Reeve off his game. In her attempt to distract him, she finds herself distracted. They fall into an enemies-with-benefits sort of relationship (HOLY HOTNESS), one that neither of them wants to end. But there's still the fact that they're on opposite sides of an important case. Feelings develop while emotions are high. Leary and Reeve have everything to gain and everything to lose. And in this trial, there will be only one winner.
Friction was perfection--sultry, seductive, and sweet. My favorite aspect of the story was that their passion fueled secret relationship turns into something more real. Usually you don't see that happen until the end of a story, so it was nice to see Leary and Reeve admit it to each other instead of hiding it. If you're on the lookout for an extremely sexy book with a romance that will warm you to the core, this story is what you need.
