*Review* The Opposition by Alicia Bryant


Sophia Grant has worked hard to establish herself as an associate at a big law firm, and she strives to be cautious and level-headed. So the last thing she expected was to find herself falling for her opposing counsel on a case. Worse, the outcome of the case decides the trajectory of her best friend’s life.

It all starts when Sophia finds her best friend Michael waiting in her office one day, bearing unexpected news: his company is suing him for leaking trade secrets to another company, an infraction he swears he didn’t commit. When Sophia agrees to represent him, she meets Sam, the opposing counsel on the case, with whom she strikes up an unexpected and invigorating friendship. As Sophia struggles to untangle the legal case, keep the partners at her firm happy, and protect her friendship with Michael, can she keep her growing closeness with Sam from getting in the way?

My Review:

3 out of 5 stars

The Opposition was a quick, interesting read.  Sophia is a strong, independent woman.  While the stress of handling her best friend's lawsuit started to pile on top of her, she never let that stress show to Michael, who was going through his own personal hell.  Sam is very charming and I enjoyed his interactions with Sophia.  I was hoping to see more of a relationship develop between Sophia and Sam and see more of a struggle to keep things professional between them.  While the characters were interesting and very well developed, I just didn't feel invested in them.  I really enjoyed all of the legal aspects of the book.  They were described in such a way that you didn't feel like it was going over your head and it kept your attention.  I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to future books from this author.  

You can purchase The Opposition on Amazon or read it for free in Kindle Unlimited.
