Hot, sexy and brilliantly built, Friction was the perfect read for me. Not only the romance factor was ideal with an enemies to lovers trope, but the plot kept me interested throughout the book. I devoured this one, 5 stars!
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.

This is a book I’ve read in one-sitting. This is a book I completely let myself lost in. This is a book that completely caught me off guard. This book is a must read!
I’ve read a few books by Sawyer Bennett now, and I must say, every time she writes a romance related to the lawyer’s world it’s a complete success for me! I knew about the hotness factor of her stories, the lady is quite talented when it comes to write sexy scenes. Smoking hot sex scenes. But mixed with a world she knows well—she’s a lawyer— the plot and background story, the chemistry between her characters, she takes it up to an all new level.
This book was just perfect in every way!
Leary Michaels once white trash, worked really hard to get where she always wanted to be. At the top.
She learned from the best at Knight and Payne’s law firm, her mentor being a true legend and mystery in the business. Now, on top of being one of the best lawyers, she also masters the use of her gender assets to crush all her competitors.
Crushed, floored, bewildered… There is no word to express how Reese Holloway feels when he discovers the sexy woman that nearly blew his mind off in the elevator with an impromptu stripping act is in fact his opponent in the case he’s working on.
The story starts off as one of the nicest trope ever in the romance genre, an enemies to lovers one.
The banter alone is worth reading Friction. Leary was the perfect heroine, smart, fierce and determined. She sure knows how to strike but she probably was a bit quick to judge Reese Holloway.
The man may be all polite and slick in court, but underneath lies an alpha ready to pounce.
I loved that in Reese’s character. He was a perfect balance of the good guy and asshole and domineering in the bedroom. Whenever he was interacting with Leary I kind of wished I was a lawyer too. Named Leary.
Tension, lust, and white hot chemistry were delivered in the best way possible, literally getting you frantic with the need for release. And oh how Sawyer Bennett did deliver in that department! Quick and rough encounters between meetings, secrets dirty touches in the court room, a lot of their encounters were basked in a kind of forbidden romance haze and it certainly added to the story.
What truly wrapped it all up for me, making “Friction” the perfect read, was that I felt entertained and curious all through the book. I loved witnessing the main characters’ relationship naturally evolve into something more, but more than that, I really wanted to know the outcome of the background story, the case Leary and Reese were fighting against. It was as important and enjoyable for me as the romance part.
To conclude, I couldn’t stress you enough to pick up this little gem if you are fan of the enemies to lovers trope, sexy romance and bantering jousts. Friction is definitely a must read!
