Friction by Emily Snow

Publication Date: January 18th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publisher: HEA Press

Friction a SEXY All-New Standalone from Emily Snow is now LIVE!

Former overachiever Lucy WillIams sucks at adulting.

Recent divorce, check.

Pending lawsuit, check.

A move back to Boston to live with her mother, triple check.

It can’t get much worse, right?

When she starts her new marketing job at EXtreme Effects, she’s positive shit’s stopped hitting the fan. Sure, what she’s advertising is a little … unorthodox, but it pays the bills. And since she’s seconds away from becoming Lucy Williams: Wednesday Night Bingo Enthusiast, she needs money to get the hell out of her mother’s house.

The only problem is her boss, Mr. Extreme himself: Jace Exley. He’s everything any sane woman dreams of—alpha, successful, ridiculously gorgeous. He’s also Lucy’s worst nightmare. Because like every overachiever, she has that underachiever she brushed off. The slacker who, once upon a time ago, was the object of her dirtiest schoolgirl fantasies.

Jace Exley—with his sarcastic smirk and delicious accent—just happens to be that guy.

And the friction between them?

Well, that’s the only adulting Lucy seems to be winning at.

Review

5star

Wow. That is my first thought when I was done with this book. Friction by Emily Snow was such a great read for me. It had all the elements that I love in a book. A great story line, intriguing characters, a hot and sexy alpha, a sassy female, and some really fun banter, great supporting characters, intense drama, and some sizzling sexual tension. This whole book for me was the entire package and I was so sad when it ended, yet so glad that I read got to read it.

Lucy is back home. Not the choice that she would have made for herself, but her only option after having to leave her job and life. Lucy is usually a good girl who is successful in her career, but when she is betrayed by the one person that she is supposed to trust the most, she makes a decision that will change her life forever. Looking for a job, Lucy is desperate and finds herself in the last place she would have ever thought she would be…… back in front of Jace Exeley.

Jace is every woman’s dream. Tall, dark, handsome with blue eyes that will make you weak in the knees. Making a name for himself in an unorthodox business, he is looking for help marketing his company. Imagine his surprise when the girl from his high school that got under his skin and lit it on fire at the same time walks in his office looking for a job. Jace knows he shouldn’t give straight laced Lucy the job, but Jace can’t help himself when it comes to Lucy Williams.

I loved this book 100%. Jace and Lucy were great characters that fit each other perfectly. The push and pull between them built up the tension until it exploded. I loved the good girl and bad boy angle. The drama was intense and had me wanting to reach through the pages and slap a few characters. I also really loved Daisy. She was a fun and sassy character as well. This book made my heart race, my blood boil, and my skin flush. A great read.

Can something that burns so rapidly calm the whispering chaos of your cries? Or is this all just an illusion. The perfect hypnosis. Like the humming of a sweet melody to your frantic brain. 

Drip. 
Blood trickled over the curve of Millie’s collarbone.
Drip. 
Slithering over her shoulder. 
Drip. 
Sliding off and into the mass puddle of death surrounding her. 

The last petal has fallen, a queen is born, and the disarray of her world is about to shatter under her very throne.

Review
4-star
I absolutely loved the Razing Grace Duo of books. Razing Grace part 1 had me on the edge of my seat and I could not wait for Razing Grace Part 2. I was not disappointed when I read this book. They are dark, edgy, and sexy as all get out.

Raze is one bad dude and you don’t want to mess with him or his merry band of henchmen, The 6. However, Millie has no qualms standing up to Raze. Despite her fear, she has nothing but love for this 100% alpha male. Reeling from the loss of Miles, Millie must pick up the pieces while standing beside her man. Not only is Raze the King of the underworld, but he is now the leader of The Army.

In addition to being his Queen, Millie is dealing with Miles’ loss. Things get sketchy when it becomes apparent that there is treachery afoot. Family, friends, loyal minions, great loss, and a blast from the past bring Razing Grace 2 full circle.

This book was so fun to read. I loved each and every character. It was great to see The 6 without their masks and learn a bit more of them. Some of them surprised me as did Millie with her acceptance of The Six after what she went through in the first book. Joker and Angel especially grew on me in this book. I can’t wait to see more books come from this group of Merry Henchmen.

Author Bio

Amo’s debut series was the Sinful Souls MC series, and if you asked her which of her books you should start with, she would say The Devil’s Own Series (even though you can read any of her books as standalone’s).She’s a full-time writer from New Zealand who loves long romantic walks to the wine cellar.

When she’s not creating magic, you can usually find her relaxing in front of the television watching the latest episode of Supernatural or Vikings. (This will be updated as she finds new television shows with hot actors.)

She’s the proud mother of four little critters who are the reason she breathes, but also the reason she drinks.

She loves to write like how she lives, hanging on the edge of insanity with a wine glass in one hand and her morals-or lack thereof- in the other. 

Those are not my monkeys, I swear….
Oh those hellhounds? Yeah, those are mine.

TRAE
It’s a call that changes my life–and my little girl’s. Years ago, playing for the NBA was the dream, but the Seattle Stallions suck. Worse than that, my old teammate is now the star center–not to mention my number one rival. There has to be a catch, some sort of agenda. Before I was injured, I was the best. Now? There’s no way they want me.

But when I see the roster and salaries, it all comes together. It’s a chance to get on the court again and change our lives. And I just can’t wait for the opportunity to finally take him down. What I never counted on is Courtney Cohen being the game changer.

COURTNEY
I inherited the Bad News Bears of the NBA. When I discovered the star center, my ex fiancé, cheating on me, all I want is to jump ship before the whole thing sinks. But with revenge on my mind, I exact a plan. Take down the dirty player and save my father’s dream.

Suddenly twelve minutes is too little time, and a season is not long enough.

 

Review

 

4-star
I am not a big fan of sports reads, but after reading the blurb on this book, I was intrigued and needed to give it a try. I am so glad that I did.

Courtney is a no-nonsense owner of a basketball team. She inherited the team when her father passed away. Owning the Seattle Stallions is a tough job and Courtney has to prove herself everyday. No one wants to take a woman serious. Good thing she has her friend Christa to get her through the hard times. Especially when she uncovers the truth about her boyfriend, Brock.

Trae is a wild card with the Seattle Stallions. He has a history with some of the players and he has his own agenda. No one knows the real Trae and when Courtney sees his true colors, she can’t help but fall for the bad boy baller. The single father that is truly devoted to his daughter has Courtney weak in the knees.

Reading this book pulled me deeper into the Courtney and Trae story. I loved their characters. Courtney is such a strong character who is making a mark for herself in a male dominated field. Trae melted my heart with his love for his daughter and then flipping the switch with his dominance with Courtney.

A great read all around. You will not be disappointed!

EXCERPT

 

“You still afraid of me?” Courtney asks. I push her hair out of her face. “No.” “I’m afraid of you.” “No beer muscles tonight?” I ask, glancing at her empty glasses. She shakes her head. I scoot in closer to her. “Tell me what you’re afraid of.” “Liking you too much,” she says then takes a drink. I turn her in her seat so she’s facing me. “You’re gonna like me even more when I’m inside you.” Her body grows taut. “You can’t say stuff like that. It makes me uncomfortable.” “Well, now I’m going to have to do it more often to get you used to it; make you crave it, beg for it.”
