Friction (A Legal Affairs Novel) Sawyer Bennett Release Date: October 27, 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.
Leary does not start out as your typical lawyer. She doesn't have desinger clothes or the most confidence. That is until she gets a job with the Knight & Payne law firm. After that, everything changes. Leary is now a confident and very well dressed lawyer. As she was taught, she uses all of the assets God gave her to win cases. The case she is currently working on hits very close to home. A woman who has to strip for a living to afford to care for her autistic son. Jenna had a breast augmentation to help with her job but, it went horribly wrong and has left her disfigured and without a job. Leary is prepared to do what it takes to win this case. Her biggest obstacle is Reeve. The opposing lawyer who is as equally seductive and dark as her. Has Leary met her match in Reeve? Will she be able to get justice for Jenna?
I loved Leary. She turned into a strong and confident woman. Despite her upbringing, which was heartbreaking. The way her and Reeve meet in the elevator was awesome! I loved it. These two had chemistry from the moment they met each other. It was destined that these two would have dirty hot nights together and can I just say...wow! You might turn into a puddle of hotness while reading this book because it is that hot. Things are not normal for them though. They are fighting against each other in court. There are more then just ethical issues at play. These two start off as friends with benefits but, the line starts blurring as feelings come into play. Would you risk your license for the one you love?
I loved how this book had the dynamic of the court case. It played so well into the story and their relationship. It made things way less black and white for them. To no be able to talk about anytihng would be incredibly difficult. Especially when the Doctor going against Jenna was such a dick. He deserved to lose everything but, with the law things are not always as easy as they seem. I was drawn into the court case instantly.
This is a great read. Be sure to pick up your copy!!
