Blurb:
Cool-headed and careful, up-and-coming lawyer Sophia Grant works hard at the Chicago law firm where she handles an ever-growing roster of corporate clients. The last thing she ever expected was to find herself falling for opposing counsel on a case. But after she agrees to represent her best friend, Michael, in a lawsuit, she finds herself drawn to Sam, the charming and talented lawyer on the other side.

As Sophia fights to clear her friend's name, she and Sam strike up an unexpected and invigorating friendship that leaves her wondering whether she can really trust him. She's determined to do everything she can to help Michael and to untangle his case. Can she keep her growing affection for Sam from getting in the way?

The Opposition is a charming and entertaining novel about friendship, trust, and finding love in surprising places.

My Review:

This is a debut novel by Alicia, but it is more promising and exceeded my expectations. Earlier, I never read a book about lawyers and Iam glad I read this. Sophia is a young up-coming lawyer and she had to represent a case for her best friend Michael. When anyone has to take up a task in their profession which involves a close friend in personal life, it usually adds up to more stress. Moreover, Sophia gets attracted to the Opposition lawyer Sam, which makes things complicated. But, Sophia keeps her affection towards Sam in control and works hard for the case and of course, the result is awesome. 

I loved the character of Sophia - genuine, hard working and helpful. Sam is enigmatic and charming. Though I would have loved reading more pages about Sam and Sophia, this novel is up to the point without dragging the story. The title of the book is apt, but I felt, the cover might have been more attractive. The flow of the story is easy to follow and the pace is good.

My Rating: 4.5/5

PS: I have received this book from the author for review and this is my honest opinion on the book.
