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.

Is there anything that Sawyer Bennett isn’t awesome at? I don’t think so. I’ve read a few of Sawyer’s books, all different, yet all awesome. This is my first experience with reading her Legal Affairs series and this one did not disappoint.

Friction is a quick, funny and hot read about two attorneys that find themselves on opposing sides of a medical malpractice case and fall in love in the process.


Leary Michaels is a top litigator with the law firm of Knight  & Payne. She totally knows how to use all of her assets to get exactly what she wants. And she’s great at what she does. She’s extremely confident and strong willed but she wasn’t always like that. Her past is at the heart of the story. She’s also a crusader for justice and takes her cases to heart.




Reeve Holloway is the opposing counsel; he is also a top litigator, smart, super-hot alpha male, sexy and super funny. He was hilarious; he totally made the book for me.

That night, though, when she came over to my house, I told her that it turned me on, and she proceeded to pick a fight over our respective positions on tort reform. She lit into me good, didn’t hold back, and was about as disrespectful as you could get.


Reeve and Leary play with fire and eventually get burned. They start the story as pseudo enemies, each trying to gain a leg up on each other for the sake of their cases. But the sexual tension is off the charts and they eventually give in to their desires, and it’s hot, really hot! They think they are starting a f**k buddy arrangement but in the process they develop a great friendship that turns into love. They are in every way each other’s match.

The legal side of the book is on point. Sawyer has a great way of engaging you into the story. As a former attorney and great writer, she explains civil litigation perfectly but without boring you. And trust me, it is boring, lol.  There’s no huge drama or misunderstanding, the conflict is known since the beginning and the rest is just the ride there. Overall, I really enjoyed this book it was hot and funny. Totally recommend!
