4 Everyone Needs Some Friction CROWNS
Emily Snow provides a quick and dirty romance with a touch of animosity between the two characters that ultimately drives the chemistry between the hero and the heroine, Jace and Lucy.
Jace and Lucy are old schoolmates who did not part on the best terms. Both seeming to secretly long for other, but neither feeling worthy or willing to put themselves out there, they let their animosity take center stage. When they meet up again as adults, a similar type of relationship is established, but now Jace is a grown man that is fully in charge of his sexuality and what he wants. Through most of the novel the chemistry between the two characters sustains the reader, but eventually readers want some kind of pay off for the big wait. While the physical interactions are fun and often dirty, I think expected more because of Jace’s job and the mention of previous predilections. That being said, Lucy pushes her boundaries in the bedroom with him, and I wish readers would have been able to see a little more of her development and progression into the kinkier side of her bedroom activities. Readers will, however, fully enjoy the relationship between the two characters. The bantering, the joking, the eventual sharing of intimate details of their lives establishes this couple as more than just a man and woman driven by lust.
The story really focuses on the connection between Lucy and Jace, as well as the progression of their relationship. The connection between the two, Lucy’s past coming back to haunt her repeatedly, and the conflict the arises for the two characters is enough to keep readers entertained, and when it is all said and done, Emily Snow leaves reader with a resolution that will leave them content and happy.
This is my first foray into the world of Emily Snow, and I enjoyed my time in the EXtreme world. It is fun, it is sexy, and it is filled with lovable characters. Friction is a perfect light, quick, and dirty read that is sure to entertain and satisfy any steamy readers’ appetite.

Former overachiever Lucy WillIams sucks at adulting.

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.
