Book Review: Friction by Sawyer Bennett

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.


I have been reading a lot of Sawyer Bennett lately ever since she published the last couple books in the Cold Fury hockey series so when I saw that she had a book available on Netgalley I requested it immediately.

Bennett really delivers in this intense, drama filled book. She has the competing lawyers in a very personal case sizzling up all sorts of things before they even make it into the courtroom. It was very interesting to see inside the lives of the attorneys as they prepared their cases. Bennett was a lawyer before she started writing romance so I'm sure it's a very realistic view.

I loved the forbidden aspect of this and all of the sneaking around these two had to do. What starts as a forbidden friends with benefits really transforms throughout the book and by the end I couldn't help but dread what was to come of their relationship once the closing arguments took place.

The two characters really balanced each other out and saw the other for who they were, deep down eventually and it was a good foray into Bennett's legal affair series, even if it is the 8th book. That just means I have seven more books to dive into!
