BLOG TOUR, REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY: "Yield: A Legal Affairs Story" by Sawyer Bennett

Yield:  A Legal Affairs Story
(Book #3 of Cal and Macy’s Story)
By: Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: May 5, 2015

Yield is the final book the Legal Affairs trilogy of Cal and Macy’s story. 
Clash and Grind, Books #1 and #2, are now available for purchase.

**Due to sexual content and heavy subject matter of an abusive nature, this book may not be suitable for all audiences. 

Yield (verb): to surrender or submit (oneself) to another Macy Carrington is broken. The strong, beautiful woman that I’ve unwittingly fallen in love with is all kinds of broken from a secret that she has carried for far too long. A secret so dark, she has gone to great lengths to protect it. A secret that I’m terrified will one day rip her away from me. The only time Macy frees herself from the darkness is when she is naked and in my arms. When I am deep inside her body, there is nothing she fears. When she wraps herself around me, she is at peace. If she would only yield to me completely, I know I can set her free.

I’m rather stingy with my top ratings. The book has to be memorable and the story has to be unique in some way. With the proliferation and popularity of erotica, there are a lot of books out there – unfortunately, many of the narratives are familiar.  Therefore, it is interesting to me, that the reason I love Yield is because it is an old-fashioned love story underneath the erotica. 

Because this is a short serial, each book brings us one step closer to understanding Macy’s ambivalence. I love how this story unravels.  Sawyer Bennett keeps us on the edge of our seats, and at the same time, makes us fall further in love with Cal.  I love Cal.  He is a seriously good guy. His selflessness is so attractive. It’s one of the best qualities in a book boyfriend. He’s also very tenacious.  He refuses to allow Macy to push him away and instead, makes himself indispensable in her life.  I wonder if Cal was a Boy Scout as a kid.

As a grown man, Cal has a healthy libido.  Cal and Macy both do.  This is a balanced couple in the bedroom. Macy is sexually uninhibited: 

I love that she is makes her move when she wants and isn’t afraid to voice her needs. . . . I’m in an almost constant state of arousal around her, yet she assuages my needs in overabundance, keeping me well satisfied and happy.”

But despite Macy’s confidence in many other areas of her life, she also carries a certain level of sadness and insecurity that holds her back from fully giving herself to Cal.  Her past has damaged her to the point where she is currently surviving, not living.  But it is Cal that gives her hope, gives her a lifeline, gives her the courage to take a chance: 
“…[Y]our life isn’t about just merely enduring anymore.  It’s changed. You’ve changed. You’ve left survival far behind, and our life now is about thriving.  Despite some Macy’s dark past, this story is about stepping out to take a chance.   

With genuine emotion and seamless writing, Sawyer Bennett brings a old fashioned love story with a modern edge of erotica.
