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 is a lawyer and her most recent case she has taken over has hit close to home for her, so she will try to win this with claws and teeth. When she makes a research and finds out who is going to be the defense lawyer, she works on a plan to use in her favor.
I took risks, I lied and cheated sometimes, and I used my female charms over and over again to daze and confuse my opponents.
Reeve is completely fascinated by Leary since the moment they meet. Especially that moment will intrigue him like no other and there's no turning back after the moment that Leary had challenged him. Two can play that game and Reeve is an alpha male that won't take no for an answer, even though Leary is a quite strong and dynamic woman. The sexual tension is off the charts and their relationship will take another route other than professional.
They may be opponents in the courtroom, but the chemistry between them will bring them close and things can become complicated for the case they are both working. Will they mess things up in or out of the courtroom? Or maybe both?
Will we be able to open ourselves up to sex, emotion and genuine affection after a hard day of trying to tear each other down?
Friction was exactly what I needed at that moment and for that I'm so grateful! I was in need of a sexy story, because my recent reads were without sex and my inner whore was craving for it. And Friction totally made up for it! The sex was hot, the tension between them scorching and damn, those two were on fire!!
I liked also the fact that it wasn't just sex, but the plot was also quite intriguing. While they were fighting over the case and their relationship, about what is right and what is wrong, what were their limits when it came to the ethics of their job and also the brewing feelings between them. It was just so lovely to watch, but also had some kind of suspense and I trully loved reading their story.
He's my opponent on this case, and we can't change that. He's going to fight me tooth and nail when we get in that courtroom, and I'm going to fight him back just as hard. That's the way our legal system works.
I did felt bad at first for Ford, because I could see that his feelings were deeper for her, but I'm glad he seemed to give them the green light. I'm just looking forward to reading now his story, because he seemed like a cool character and deserves his own HEA.
Also, I loved how smart and powerful the heroine was and even though she had a rough past, she never seemed to whine about it. I admired her and I loved how she gave control to Reeve when it came to their intercourse. It shows how sometimes women who are strong on the outside, actually need someone to take care of them. I loved both characters so much. And let's take a minute to applause Reeve for being an excellent lover [and the ultimate champion pussy eater! (hide spoiler)]and the ultimate champion pussy eater!
Every touch from her, every sound out of her mouth, every nuance of her day. It all became mine. I possessed her and she consumed me.
I would definitely recommend this one to my friends who like a good erotic story plus those who like to read about lawyers and cases. Trust me it wasn't boring the least, on the other hand, it was a really captivating story and the case and all the secondary characters will make you livid. Looking forward to reading more from Sawyer Bennett! :)
This is part of a series, but can also be read as a standalone.
