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 book was prone to a lot of over exaggeration and a woman I barely learned to like.  This was one romance where I had hoped that the man would leave the woman, high and dry.  But alas, it was not to be.

Leary Michaels is not your typical lawyer. While most lawyers do their job to suck as much money out of their clients as possible, Leary actually cares about her client and tries her best to do right by them.  And she wins every time.

That is why Leary works for the powerhouse law firm of Knight & Payne. A company that caters to the people rather than to large companies.

Winning always comes first to Leary, while ethics tends to come in a distant second.  Leary works what her mother gave to charm and distract her opponents, until now.

Now at the most important case of her life, Leary meets her match in the form of Reeve Holloway.

Reeve Holloway was blown away the first time he met Leary.  After a sexy wardrobe change in the elevator, she set his blood on fire.  Unfortunately, their second meeting was not so great when she challenged his manhood, where he was more than happy to set her straight on.

Reeve has never met a woman to in tune with her sexuality and has no problem using it to win her cases.  He appreciates her sexuality, but he won't be manipulated by it.  It was a dangerous game that Leary started.  A game he is more than happy to finish it, in the courtroom or the bedroom.

Who would come out on top with these two strong people who are determined to win?  Leary or Reeve?  Find out in the eighth installment of the Legal Affairs series, Friction.

I loved +Sawyer Bennett's book for the Wicked Horse and I craved more.  When I saw that this book was available, I jumped on it, but I was not prepared for what I got.  I did not like this story very much and I wished that Reeve left Leary and her unfair self, high and dry.

Don't get me wrong, I had a lot of fun reading the book and it was well written.  It's just, I don't agree with what Leary did in order to win her cases.  I know all about a woman's right and all that, but it just did not sit right with me on what she depended on to win her cases.

It was also said, quite a lot in the book, that Leary was very professional in her job, yet something minor irritated her and she turned into a five-year-old. With name calling and barely disguised anger.  I was seriously perplexed by Leary and her character and I did not like what I read.

Reeve on the other hand I loved.  He was sweet, understanding and was doing his job.  It was not cool of Leary to call him out on doing what he had to do in order to do his job.  He did not go behind her back and he did not lie to her.  They promised each other not to disclose what they had in the case and Leary just turned plain ugly.

When you are emotionally invested into something, you tend to forget professionalism and you speak with your feelings instead.  This happened to Leary, and I understood that, but I just could not find myself liking her, not her boss.

The sex was explosive in the book as well as the banter between Leary and Reeve.  It was shocking to know that Sawyer Bennett was a lawyer and she used her knowledge to good use.  This is the most detailed I have ever read about a court case.

I thought it was a few days and you go to court, I had no idea of the many different stages you have to go through and the waiting before you can even make it into the courtroom.  I never wanted to be a lawyer, now I know I made an excellent choice not to become one.
