About the book:Grind (verb): to weaken or destroy gradually Macy Carrington is not the woman I once thought her to be. What she does not allow her heart to feel, she gives with her body. The sex between us is explosive and depraved. I’ve done things with her that would never have crossed my wildest imagination, and I can’t ever seem to get enough. But now I want more from her. I want to figure out her dark secret, expose it and then help her to heal from it. I know, without a doubt, that Macy is capable of love, and I will grind her down until I make her accept the truth of it. Grind (verb): to wear down, polish, or sharpen by friction Cal Carson is not the man I once thought him to be. Strong, determined, sexy as hell and a beast in the bedroom. He is every woman’s fantasy. He is my fantasy. But no matter how hard Cal tries to grind me down, my heart and secrets are mine and mine alone.
Just when I thought we were getting somewhere, then boom! It’s over! I totally got sucked into this story. To recap, Cal and Macy have been frienemies for a long time. All they have in common is their relationship with Mac and now, cosmic sex. Cal, Mr. I-want-it-all, wants something more. Macy, with her mysterious past, will not take this relationship further. What happened in her past that makes her so protective and give her such low self-esteem? Is this story really just about the sex? Of course, not! (Although do not dismiss the ground-shaking encounters these two have.) This is a Sawyer Bennett book. I love how she grows the relationship between these two characters.
Early in this story, Cal and Macy attend a sex club. This section is developed so well. The developments are a little unexpected. I like the fallout and repercussions, not just for the sexual escapades, but also the feelings that rise to the surface from it. The risks that they take and the reasons behind it creates an emotional bond. It becomes the foundation for something more.
It’s both humorous and sweet to see Cal court Macy. I love the funny moments of their inverted relationship where the first date comes after the sex.
After finishing this read, it took me a minute to figure out what I liked so much about this book. I knew I liked Cal, but it didn’t strike me until later why. Cal is NORMAL! He is not damaged. He has a naughty side, but nothing abnormal. Cal is emotionally accessible and that makes him my new favorite hero.
In A Nutshell:
Turning a corner, this edition moves from the sensational sex to the sensational sex plus building the relationship phase. I loved it and I’m totally hooked. Cannot wait until Yield!
