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.
ADD TO GOODREADS
Have you heard this one? A girl walks into a room…and gets almost the biggest shock of her life…
And, once again, author Emily Snow has knocked it out of the park with this sexier-than-sin, frenemies-to-lovers read that is FRICTION. Yep, I still have flames coming out of my ears after this one, because it was STEAMY. But in typical Emily fashion, there is so much more to this book than just the combustible chemistry between the hot mogul and the uptight woman that finds herself working for him. So much more.
To say that life is not going Lucy Williams’ way is an understatement. So she’s hardly surprised when a blind job interview lands her squarely in the domain, and at the mercy, of none other than Jace Exley, the guy that Lucy once wrote off as the guy most likely to amount to nothing. Fate, Karma, Destiny, call her what you will, is a fickle, fickle lady, with a memory miles long, so how ironic that Lucy, out of a job and down on her luck, would need to make nice with her one-time nemesis.
Emily Snow can write a hot alpha guy, and she has done a superb job with Jace. Being in charge comes naturally to him, and he’s none-too-subtle about the fact that he’s the one calling the shots – and enjoying it – with Lucy. But Jace is more than just a guy with a thriving, um, alternative business and a body and face to die for. He’s got those layers, the ones that aren’t apparent at a single glance. Discovering those layers is a lesson for Lucy, and one that fans the flames of her attraction and admiration.
I like Lucy a lot. Like others of Emily’s heroines, she’s got spine. Those life lessons? Yeah, they’re coming fast and furiously, and she’s not just sitting back and focusing on how bad things have gotten, she’s moving forward and cutting the dreck out of her life. Seeing her loosen up as she gets to know Jace and his world better only makes me like her more. And, Emily, if you’re reading this, MORE JAMIE. Because a girl’s best friend, especially one as feisty as Jamie, deserves a story of her own.
A book is a success for me if I can’t put it down, if I feel strongly about the characters, if the story is original and fresh, and Emily hits all those markers expertly in FRICTION. This book is an easy 5 sexy, compelling, page-flipping stars, and one that I won’t forget soon. It needs to be on your TBRs, guys, so grab it now, and thank me later.
