One year ago, I graduated from law school and embarked on a career as a purveyor of high priced legal shenanigans.

Six months ago, my boyfriend dumped me when I thought he might be proposing.

Two weeks ago, I got drunk and joined a secret sex club.

Two days ago, I had a torrid one-night stand with a stranger.
Today? Well, today I’m contemplating having an affair with my boss.

Matt Connover is all kinds of forbidden temptation wrapped up in a deliciously wicked package, and he’s made it clear… he’s only interested in sex.

My name is McKayla Dawson but everyone calls me Mac. I work at the powerhouse firm of Connover & Crown, LLP, where the law has never felt so hot.

But between you and me, I’m afraid my heart won’t survive these Legal Affairs.

Legal Affairs is a serial romance with a whole lot of hot and a little bit of funny. It has six volumes that will be released every two weeks, the first one, entitled Objection, on January 10, 2014.

First Impression ....Sawyer Bennett writing a sexy and fun serial about a young lawyer? Yes, and thank you.

The Story... McKayla needs a release. She gets it, courtesy of an exclusive group promising safe and uncomplicated sexual encounters. A risk-free one-night stand. But.... the anonymity is no more when Mac's fling turns out to be her new boss, Matt. Matt has serious doubts about their working together. Mac wants to let it go. Can the two leave their night of wicked passion behind?

The Characters ...Objection is told strictly through Mac's point-if-view, and she is such a fun lead character. She was serious about her job, but also snarky and a bit lighthearted. She's not bitchy or mean, but she definitely stands up for herself when needed.

As for the other characters, they Mac's best friend Macy was fun and a little crazy. Her former boss/co-worker was a complete witch and the perfect antagonist. Matt was serious and sexy, and very intriguing. I always liked and gave him the benefit of a doubt, even when he should be pissing me off.

The Writing ....I always enjoy Bennett's writing, so I expected to enjoy this. What I truly adored about Objection is the fun and slightly snarky tone. Objection is very different from Bennett's previous books, and you can just tell that she had an absolute blast creating these Mac and her crazy fun story.

Could I Put Objection Down? ....You know, I really couldn't. I started it with the intention of reading the first chapter. But, although I kept telling myself "one more chapter", and before I knew it, I was finished. Granted, it's short, but still, I did not put it down.

In the End ... Objection was fun, fast, and sexy. I love the approach Bennett has taken with her Legal Affairs series, and can't wait for more.

Favorite Quotes:

  I'm frozen in place. I have no clue what to do.
  Yes, I have hormones, pheromones, and even just good old, run-of-the-mill moans stuck in the back of my throat, which are on the verge of busting loose. My mind whirls...what did Matt mean by that statement?
  Do I slap him or jump him?

  My heart is on the verge of exploding in my chest, and only two things fill my mind.
  First, please, please, please kiss me, Matt.
  Second, please, please, please don't let me have a heart attack before he does.

  1. I'm glad that the author is branching out from her comfort zone and trying something new. I love the sound of the characters and the plot, but I'm not entirely convinced that it would be my kind of a book. I do think that I should give a sexy lawyer book a try though so perhaps this book and me are written in the stars ;)
