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.
5 KINK Review
Oh. Em. Effing. Gee!! What an excellent read. This is my first book by Sawyer Bennett. Where have I been? The chemistry between Reeve & Leary is sooooo delicious. It has the perfect mix of hot sex and courtroom drama. You will keep turning the page.
Leary Michaels, junior partner at Knight & Payne, is representing Jenna LaPietra, an exotic dancer in a medical malpractice suit. She meets Reeve, the opposing counsel, and seduces him in the elevator prior to their first court appearance. Que The Sparks Now!
Leary has learn the art of using her confidence and sex appeal to win in court. Their attraction results in an agreement to date each other with the understanding they will not talk about their case. Leary finds herself in a friends with benefit relationship that is quickly becoming more while the case is quickly becoming more personal.
What makes Friction live up to its title is the conflict between Reeve and Leary. Leary believes there are certain scenarios that justify putting her law license at risk to ensure justice prevails. Reeve believes the opposite. He will not sacrifice his career and law license.
In closing, this is a series you must be reading if you are not already. If you are looking for courtroom drama mixed with steamy erotic sex, you found it. The legal antics and procedures are brilliantly written to keep you glued to your Kindle. I don’t expect any less considering the background of the author. Without a doubt, this will not be my last book I will be read from Sawyer Bennett. Hello to my new #Preorder author.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
Hawke: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel (Carolina Cold Fury Hockey)
Publication Date: March 15, 2016
The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team proves that love is a power play. As Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling series continues, the league’s most notorious party animal gets blindsided by the one that got away.
Off the ice, elite defenseman Hawke Therrien enjoys his fair share of booze and good times. And why shouldn’t he? He’s worked his way up from the minor leagues and made himself a star. The only thing Hawke misses from that life is the pierced, tattooed free spirit who broke his heart without so much as an explanation. She’s almost unrecognizable when she walks back into his life seven years later—except for the look in her eyes that feels like a punch to the gut.
Vale Campbell isn’t the same girl she was at twenty. As crazy as she was about Hawke, her reckless behavior and out-of-control drinking were starting to scare her. She had to clean up her act, and that would never happen with Hawke around. Cutting him loose was the hardest thing Vale ever had to do—until now. Because she’s still crazy about Hawke. And if he could ever learn to forgive her, they just might have a future together.
