Review

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

As far as the Sawyer Bennett books that I’ve read, they have always been hot and steamy. The sex scenes are most of the time explicit, but never pornographic. The chemistry between her characters are sizzling hot. Her stories are of people from different walks of life, from hockey players to lawyers and what have yous. When I started reading Friction, I was really thinking this was going to be the usual sexy contemporary romance set in the world of lawyers. I didn’t expect to like it this much.

Actually, that’s wrong. I didn’t just like it. I loved it. I mean, yes, the plot may have been a little unrealistic. Yes, the heroine didn’t actually display the qualities of an exceptionally good lawyer. Yes, the author basically showed that women in the practice really have to use their womanly ways to get ahead. However, I can ignore all of those. The reason why I loved this book was that it had a hero who was by all means an alpha, but he was never a jerk. Even when the heroine pulled an immature move in getting him jealous, he was mature enough in handling the situation and instead of lashing out, he just poured himself into his work.

The hero wasn’t perfect. He also pulled a dick move. The heroine was perfect. Even the secondary characters were imperfect. i just loved the way they all fit together to make the story entertaining. Of course, it didn’t hurt that there were so many sexy times in this book. That’s one reason why I loved this book. Anyway, I’m no stronger to Ms. Bennett’s writing, and while I know she has other books with more substance than Friction, I still have to say that if she set out to give her readers a great time with this book, she accomplished it without a doubt.
