Blog tour + ARC review: Friction by Sawyer Bennett


Friction (A Legal Affairs Novel) 
Sawyer Bennett 
Release Date: October 27, 2015

descriptionAt 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.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Every time I'm ready to read a book from Sawyer Bennett, I'm always nervous. After reading as many books from her, I'm always wondering how she is going to surprise me.

Friction didn't disappoint in the slightest! With her Legal Affairs series (Mac & Matt books - Legal Affairs Boxed Set: Volumes 1-6), this is without a doubt her best book to date! My fav for sure.

You have all the element that makes a good book with a special Sawyer's touch: Bold lawyer heroine + cocky handsome lawyer guy + sassy banter + sexy/sexual scenes = HUGE WINNER

Leary Michaels is a woman who's ready to use all her charms to win a case. 5 years ago, someone advised her to be more confident and that had helped her right until now. She is free minded and she is a woman with a good heart.
Reese Holloway is a lawyer with a dirty mind. When he first met Leary, the poor guy has no chance to resist! Leary is such a tease but be sure who you do it to


All their banter was such a delight. Leary and Reese make no prisoners. These two gives and takes as much as the other! Of course they are quickly very much attracted and even if both are explicitly specific about the status of their relation, you can't run away from feelings.

The little bonus of Friction was how the author mixes pleasure and business.

"How can one man be so vastly different from the others I’ve had? How can he bring me so quickly to dizzying heights? How can he fully entertain and annoy me at the same time? And how can I actually be starting to have feelings for a man who should be my sworn enemy?"

Leary and Reeve are both lawyers and they share a case as opponent.
How is it possible to develop a relationship and still be partial?

"Everything about her became important to me. 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. But for this stupid fucking trial, my existence would be absolutely perfect."

Leary takes the case very seriously and even a little personally. Reese has an ethic to never lose a case. You can see the struggle he is facing. You are left wondering how these two are going to find a common ground.
From their involvement in the case to the steamy moments, there's not one time I wanted to put this book down!

“We need to talk,” she says softly. “We need to fuck”


If there's one book from Saywer Bennett you have to read, it's this one!
