Synopsis

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.

Michelle's Review

Having been a huge fan of the Legal Affairs Series with Mac and Matt, and then Macy and Cole, now Ms. Bennett introduces us to Leary and Reeve.  Matt will always have a piece of my heart, but I think Reeve is closely creeping into my heart (and possibly panties, but let’s not tell Matt ok).

Leary Michaels is a junior partner and civil litigator at Knight & Payne.  She’s smart, beautiful and uses her feminine wiles to get into the opponent’s head especially if they are of the opposite sex. so when she has to argue a motion on a case that is so personal to her, she’s not only pissed off by the frivolous motion, but does her homework to find out who’s the idiot that would make such a motion in the first place.  

Reeve Holloway had no way in knowing that the sexy hot woman who so sexily is seen taking off her stocking in the elevator would be his adversary.  To say he was a bit fluster during his argument would be an understatement.  He’s both annoyed yet aroused with Leary Michaels.  

Leary and Reeve has some intense chemistry from the very beginning.  And although they are adversaries in this particular case, they immediately know that the sexual tension between each other will not go away.  Let the sexing olympics begin!

From the very beginning you knew Leary had a sad upbringing and I wanted to know why this particular case was so important to her.  I loved how Reeve truly respected Leary on a professional level.  I especially loved his Alpha tendencies with Leary.  She loved and craved his bedroom domination that’s for sure.  My heart was literally racing with regards to information on the case that could make or break for Leary.  You see, it’s a slippery slope when you’re having an affair with opposing counsel.  Will this case eventually be a test or just put these two in jeopardy of losing each other?  Well one click to get your answers.  I loved this book and could not put it down.  I really hope Ms. Bennett writes Ford’s story next.
