BLOG TOUR & REVIEW: "Clash: A Legal Affairs Book 1" by Sawyer Bennett


Clash: A Legal Affairs Story 
(Book #1 of Cal and Macy’s Story)
by Sawyer Bennett

Clash, a novella, is the first book in this Legal Affairs trilogy (Cal and Macy’s Story) and is releasing on 4/7/15. Grind will be released on 4/21/15 and Yield will be released on 5/5/15. Grind and Yield are full length novels. 

Clash Synopsis: Clash (verb): to conflict, disagree. 

It might be fair to say that I despise Macy Carrington. She slings insults with precision, not caring about the destruction she leaves in her wake. We clash in a battle of wills every time we’re around each other, and yet… I still fantasize about being lodged deep within her body. Clash (verb): to come together or collide. I have never encountered someone that grates me the way Cal Carson does. His pompous, arrogant demeanor. A holier-than-thou attitude. Any interaction with “Saint Cal” ends in a verbal clash of epic proportions, and yet… there’s no one I’d rather have in my bed than him. Clash (noun): a battle, fight or skirmish. Her breathy moans mingle with the sound of our flesh coming together, clashing with the silence that surrounds us, dispelling any notions I once had about Macy Carrington. Maybe I can break down her walls if we can call a truce to this battle. He whispers filthy words in my ear, provoking feelings I never knew were possible. The burning desire in his touch clashes with everything I once believed about Cal Carson. Maybe he can be the balm I need to soothe my broken soul, if only temporarily.

My first thought after finishing this novella is “Whoa!” I’m pretty sure this book has just about one of the sexiest scenes I’ve ever read.  Whew.

We are familiar with the characters. Macy and Cal appear in the first Legal Affair serial.  Macy is Mac’s best friend.  She is rich and quirky and seemingly promiscuous. Cal is Matt Connover’s former best friend until Cal slept with Matt’s wife in a moment of drunken stupor.  Since then, he and Mac have become close friends and business partners. Macy and Cal, however, interact like cats and dogs. They are constantly bickering and having harsh words with each other.  But as they say, ”where there is smoke, there is fire.”  That fire ignites in Macy’s kitchen pantry during Mac and Matt’s son’s first birthday.  Oh, my.

Being a novella, it would be easy to assume that this is just one long sexual interlude.  It isn’t.  Leave it to Sawyer Bennett to write emotionally engaging erotica.  Though it is a shorter story, I am already invested in the characters.  I’m desperate to know more of what makes Macy tick. Why does she act that way?  What happened to her in the past that makes her so seemingly vacant? We know where Cal stands.  He’s a successful man who is looking for “the one.” He is so endearing.   How will this story play out? 


Sawyer Bennett gives us just enough to whet our appetites with a promise to give us a heck of a lot more.  Frankly, I cannot wait.
