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.


Lucy is pretty much down on her luck. Her husband has been cheating on her, she has no job and is currently living at home with her mother. For Lucy things can't get any worse since she's always been an overachiever and a know it all. As a last resort she takes a job working for her former classmate/crush Jace. 

Jace has always been a slacker growing up and used to make fun of Lucy and her overachieving ways. Jace has made a name for himself designing all kinds of sex toys and items. I loved Jace because he has such a dirty foul mouth and you never knew what to expect from him.  I loved how he pushed Lucy's buttons and would get her all riled up. These were some of the best moments in the book. 

There is a lot of sexual innuendos and tension in this book and I thought I was going to combust while I was reading! When they finally do get together OMG!!! You definitely want to read with the a/c on! I really liked Jace and Lucy together  because they were complete opposites and they balanced each other out. Lucy made Jace focus more and take life seriously while Jace taught Lucy how to lay back and explore her wild side. Jace was very different from her horrible soon to be  ex husband who did nothing to make her life miserable. They both gave each other what they both didn't know they needed. I love those kind of romances. 

This story had a good pace, the plot held my interest and I felt the connection between the characters. As a reader these are a must for me and Emily Snow delivered! There was an issue that happened towards the end of the book and I felt it was resolved just a little too fast. During this time I would have preferred more from Jace's point of view. Even with that tiny issue for  me I still thoroughly enjoyed this book!  In closing, Emily Snow is a new to me author who is now stuck with me as a reader!
