Review Tour: Friction by Sawyer Bennett


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

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.

Globug's Review

When I started reading Friction I knew it was supposed to be about lawyers. I didn't actually realize it was part of the Legal Affairs series. When I discovered how the other characters crossed over  I literally squealed out loud. 

First impression of Leary Michaels: timid, driven, generous heart. Five years after working at her dream job the only thing that changed about her was that she was no longer timid. She learned to use all of her assets  to insure her clients, who are usually the downtrodden and less fortunate, have the best chance at justice. She may not be a saint but she has the heart of an angel. Add her personal history with her client to the case and she becomes a force to be reckoned with.

And so the games begin when opposing counsel on the most important case of her life challenges her sexually and intellectually. Her banter with Reeve is sexy and fun. Mixed in with their impassioned relationship is a malpractice lawsuit that they are on opposite sides of. I love that the author uses her in depth knowledge of the law in making this story so real. Leary and Reeve struggle with crossing ethical boundaries and keeping their hearts out of the relationship. 

I loved the new supporting characters Bennett brought to Friction. Leary's best friend and part-time lover Ford needs his own book. Her boss is also an intriguing character that I would love to see get a HEA in another book. The small bits of dialogue with the characters from Legal Affairs was the frosting on the cake. Bennett can add Friction to her list of wins.
