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.

Friction … When two talented lawyers collided from the courtroom to the bedroom … And everywhere!
Leary Michaels is a badass lawyer. This woman knows how to use her charms to test her opponents. She’s passionate about her job, defending clients with a cause.
The prologue was interesting, reading about how Leary came into this firm, freshly graduated and her meeting with the secretive and legendary Midge Payne.
After a few years, Leary became a talented lawyer, winning case after case. But this time, this one is close to her heart, she can’t lose.
Obviously she hasn’t time to date or to settle down. Her career takes a lot of her time and she can’t be distracted.
I liked the way she thinks; being always prepared and keeping tabs on her opponents, testing them. This time was no different from the others but she wasn’t prepared to found her match in the courtroom. Time for load of foreplay.
And Holy guacamole … Enter in the place Reeve Holloway … Chicka wah wah! Sorry but this guy need a sexy and hot song every time he comes in a room. I stop rambling!
This man surprised me, first being tricked by this women, he rapidly came to his senses, almost by beating Leary in her own game! And it was damn good and smoking hot!
First as an opposite of Leary’s, working in huge firm, defending corporations.
It makes no evidence that the two of them are attracted and intrigued by each other! The chase and the challenge is so tempting that playing with fire and ethics of the law was exciting. Why trying to resist such mind-blowing chemistry?
From f**k buddies to lovers, this story hooked me, they were fighting in court and when their day was over they both put their work on stand-by. I was intrigued to see where the author was going to lead us, because as the story unfolds, they both know that they won’t be left unscathed. The intensity of their feelings was increasing through the improvement of the case, where they have to do their job and to defend their clients.
How far are they willing to go?
What about the foreplay??? So freaking, absolutely amazingly mind-blowing!!! When these two are together, it was off the charts, inside and outside! Reeve domineering side was a such a turn on and Leary was more than willing to let him take control on her body but not heart. Sex is inhibited, and each time so much better.
When Reeve’s job is to ruin Leary’s case, ruining everything that he builds to win her trust, the fall is going be hard and cost him the woman he loves. Leary isn’t the kind of woman to open her heart. She valued honesty and respect. When this moment came … the consequences of his actions are hitting him hard and hurting Leary.
This was an incredible, exquisite and sinfully hot story. I hang up to every word, captivated by Leary and Reeve’s Journey through the most important battle in their lives.
Friction has one of the best foreplay-sexy story, with a frigging chemistry! Sawyer Bennett nailed it like a champ’! It was my first book from this author and definitely not the last!
