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.

Friction was my first time reading anything by Emily Snow, and I wasn't disappointed. Friction is the forbidden romance story of Jace and Lucy. This pair share a past, they were school mates who didn't have a whole lot in common, although their attraction was fairly mutual. Their story is told from a dual point of view which is personally how I get the most from a book. I love seeing the workings of both the hero and heroines mind and their innermost thoughts.
Lucy is a character that I wanted to feel sorry for, but sometimes she just annoyed me. As much as I enjoyed the characters and their back story, I really found Jace's character to more like-able and relate-able. The secondary characters were entertaining and I could see Ms Snow writing a story featuring some of them in the future.
Lucy has hit rock bottom, divorced, living at home with her mother, single and jobless. She has no idea what she is getting herself in for when she applies for a job on craigslist.
Jace and Lucy's story is sexy and steam. There are touches of humor and sarcasm that had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion. I really enjoyed the slow build up of sexual tension and chemistry. I look forward to reading more of Ms Snow's work in the future.
