Things are off, and I can’t quite put my finger on it. Some things, however, are the same. For example, the sex with Matt is just as nuclear and consistent as it always has been.

Still… I feel like I’m holding onto Matt with my fingertips, like he’s on the verge of slipping away and I don’t know what to do.

When I started these Legal Affairs, I had no way of knowing the depth of feeling that would become involved. I had no way of knowing this man could shatter my existence.

I don’t want to be hurt, so I’m grasping hard and I can only hope that he wants me enough to hang on just as tight.

So. The Legal Affairs series has reached its conclusion with Affirmation and went out on a hot, blazing, infuriating and sweet note.

I'm not sure if I've ever been so infuriated, yet so in love with a story as I was with Affirmation. Generally, when I'm as frustrated with a main character as I was Matt Connover, I just don't rate a book so highly. It may not be fair, but how can I love a book when a character infuriates me so much? I can't quite pinpoint the difference this time, other than noting that Sawyer Bennett is a manipulative genius with a knack for pushing me straight to the edge, then pulling me back with a change of heart (on Matt's part) or an epic smack down (from Mac).

Of course the big question of Affirmation is: Will Matt and Mac get their happy ending? I'm sure most will assume the answer, but I promise you, the story we get is a rough, emotional throat-punch, with a strong dose of sexy thrown throughout. It was a great, great ending, one that kept me on my toes until the very end.

The Legal Affairs series is a damn good use of the serial novella format. With it's humor, snark, sexiness, and angst, I highly recommend this series.

Favorite Quote

  "You are like the perfect fucking woman," he says reverently, but also with good cheer, because he's getting ready to feel really, really good too.
  "No, I'm not," I remind him, because otherwise, this wouldn't be our last time together. "But I'm damn close, so get your ass on this bed and get into position."

  "I need you, Mac," he says with a shaky voice. "I need your smile, your touch, and your wit. I need your tenderness, your brilliance, and your common sense. I need you to be my champion, and I need you to want to come home to me every night. I need all of those things...desperately. I think I might die without them."

About the author

USA Today Best-Selling author, Sawyer Bennett, is a snarky southern woman and reformed trial lawyer who decided to finally start putting on paper all of the stories that were floating in her head. She is married to a mobster (well, a market researcher) and they have two big, furry dogs who hog the bed. Sawyer would like to report she doesn't have many weaknesses but can be bribed with a nominal amount of milk chocolate.



  1. I'm glad you liked it but I gave up after book 3. Matt was just too much of a douche for me and I hated seeing Mac chase him.

  2. Glad you enjoyed. I don't think this series is for me but it's been very popular.

  3. Andrea, I MUST read this series!!! I have always shied away from serials but I've loved Teaching Willow...and now that all the installments of this one are out, I won't have to wait. ;) I'm glad that you loved it and that it kept you on your toes until the very end.

  4. Eeeek! Don't know if I could do this series with that type of gut wrenching type story. Even if there is a HEA if there's a lot of drama and if there is cheating (which I'm only guessing at) I don't know that I'd enjoy the story. Glad to hear you loved the series, Andrea! Great review. :)

  5. Oh sounds good! I saw the first a while back and put it on hold because I just don't like serials. Hopped over to Amazon and saw it can be bought as a box set now. Sweet! That I can totally do :)

  6. I grabbed the first one when you had it on her. I wonder if she's going to bundle these now that it's finished. I really want to read these.

  7. Haha, yeah I hear you. Matt drove me crazy, but Sawyer managed to pull it all together, making this a series I loved so much! So happy you loved it, too.

  8. I really need to catch up on this series. I love Sawyer's other books.

  9. I'm happy with how she ended the serial. This was so much fun!
