Overview

I crossed a line with my boss and there�s no taking it back.
Not that I�d want to.

You see� Matt Connover? Well, he�s something else. Strong, magnetic, sexy as hell� but yeah, he�s still my boss.

What am I doing? Why is he so irresistible to me?
Maybe it�s because I finally saw a different side to him. I saw, for a brief moment, that Matt is vulnerable, possibly damaged. Is it wrong that it makes him even sexier in my opinion?

I�m in deep and I don�t see any way out.
I don�t want to find a way out.
I want to find a way for both of us to stay involved in these Legal Affairs.
~ McKayla �Mac� Dawson

**An arc copy was given to me by the author in exchange for my honest opinion** Oh my word. This is getting good. More than good.I can’t get enough of Mac and Matt. Things start off intense from page one. Honestly I thought I was going to be able to savor this but once I got started I couldn’t stop.The steam factor is almost overwhelming.   The relationship between Mac and Matt is getting complicated. Matt will say that its one thing, but then does things that are misleading. Mac is catching feeling and is trying desperately to stop herself. Now there is this new potential guy that Mac could be interested in. Of course Matt is against that plan hands down. I’m not sure where things are going to lead between these two. What I am sure about is that things are going to get more complicated and that Matt primal behaviors are going to surface more. Hopefully the secrets that Matt seems to be keep will start to be revealed. Well it looks likes it’ll be a few more weeks before my itch can be scratched.

Holy crap, Matt Connover is so damn frustrating! One minute I love his sexy, alpha routine and the next I hate him for being such a cold jerk to Mac. Working together every day has pushed them both to the brink and neither can hold themselves back anymore. Despite Matt repeatedly reminding Mac that this is just sex, she can't help starting to have feelings for him. When he brings out his caveman act at the mention of her dating someone else, you have to wonder if he is in denial about his own feelings. But it doesn't matter because Mac is done with his crap. If she calls off the affair, will she be able to stick to it? I can't wait to see what comes next for these two!

Legal Affairs is a serialized story written by the awesome Sawyer Bennett. I highly suggest you read Part 1 Objection before you start in on this one.  Picking up a few days after Part One ends, McKayla Dawson is completely infatuated with her boss, hot-shot lawyer Matt Connover. The two have decided to give in to the blatant sexual desire for one another, but Matt has stated it's "only sex" time and time again. Not being able to stop herself from getting her emotions involved, Mac has a tough decision to make regarding their relationship, especially after she meets Cal Carson, a lawyer Matt cannot seem to stand.  I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed Stipulation. It may have started out a bit slow but I think it needed to so you'd get a build-up to the end. I really like Mac, she's smart, spunky and fun. Matt on the other hand... I don't know. He's really too possessive and demanding for my tastes, but that's not about to make me stop reading. I cannot wait to see how the next part plays out.

Ms. Bennet did it agin and left us dying for MORE! Enough legal to keep Law and Order junkies interested and enough steam for the rest.

And it continues for McKayla. She is headed to Chicago with Mike for a few days to take depositions for a case he is working on. They are still trying to fight the attraction between them. She wants more and he is only in it for the sex. While at a bar after dinner on the first day in Chicago, Mac is sitting at the bar by her self when a drunk bumps her and spills her wine on her. The drunk is one if the lawyers that has been with them all day. Mike goes into a jealous rage because the drunk had his hands on her. When Mike walks Mac back to her room, he goes in with her. And the sparks fly. The rest of her week goes down hill after they get back home and Mike has to go to Atlanta for a few days. When he shows up at her place as soon as he gets back from Atlanta, it is only for sex. He keeps tells her "You know its only sex, right?" Is he trying to convince himself. Can Mac keep her feeling out of the arrangement for sex only? Will Mike hurt her in the process? What the hell is doing taking Lorraine to dinner? What an ending, still screaming "YOU CAN'T END IT NOW!" Another great story added to this series. Great job again Sawyer! Pick this series up, it keeps getting better and better and I LOVED it!

First impression: Could not wait to jump into this one! Of course, I had it on hand after finishing the first, so my wait was short. Thank goodness!  The story: The story picks up right where it left off in Objection. This time, Mac heads off with Matt to work on a case. They try to keep things professional, but Matt snaps when he sees a guy hitting on his Mac. Despite their best efforts, they just can't stay away from each other. Mac quickly realizes that she may be falling for her boss. This could be bad, especially since he's so adamant about not wanting anything more than sex. Will that be enough for Mac? The characters: Again, I loved both McKayla and Matt in this one. I feel like we begin to see a little bit more of Matt's true self. He's possessive of Mac, but he holds her at a distance for some reason. I'm still curious to know how his story will unfold. Whatever it is, I have a feeling that Mac will be the perfect person to help him open up.  I loved the sexy scenes in this one even more than the first. Why? Because they are beginning to know more about each other. It's more than just sex. Plus, I love the way they have fun together in their sex scenes. Don't get me wrong...they're sexy, but also quite realistic. I found myself simultaneously laughing and panting.  Overall:  Again, I LOVED it! I tweeted Bennett before I even finished begging for more! The ending left me clapping for Mac, but also slightly heart broken. I'm ready to see Matt step up his game. I can't wait to see what happens next in Violation! Favorite Quotes: ~I wish I could tell you it was the violence of his voice, or even the absolute menace he was portraying, that got me excited, but it wasn't...it was the pure, flat-out jealousy that was practically dripping off his lips that got my motor running.-Loc 140 ~Also, he's funny as hell, and when he doesn't have me sobbing out in pleasure, he has me laughing so hard in bed that I'm terrified I'm going to make the faux pas of all faux pas. The dreaded fart while you're lying in your lover's arms. Luckily, that hasn't happened...yet.-Loc 238

Matthew Connover is a sex god. He is confident and amazing is a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom. He could have any woman that he chooses. Matt does not do relationships and never spends more than one night with the same woman. So what the hell is he doing with McKayla Dawson. She works for him for christ sake. He had an amazing night with her as Mr. 134 and then when she showed us as the newest attorney he acquired in a merger he should have gave her severance and sent her on her merry way. But just one taste of McKayla and Matt is addicted. He tells himself he will indulge just once more and then tries to walk away. When he finds another mans hands on McKayla's body all hell breaks loose. Matthew Connover can't let her go. His hands belong on her body. Matt only wants sex. Can McKayla give that to him or will her emotions get in the way? I love how these two characters are total alphas. McKayla does not have a submissive bone in her body and dishes back everything that Matt gives her. I am so thankful that there is only two weeks between episodes or I would go crazy waiting to see what happens next. I can't wait for violation.

McKayla has to go with Matt for a deposition in Chicago for two days. After the first very successful day, the team goes out to celebrate. One of the other lawyers, who is very drunk, hits on Mac and will not take no for an answer. He even grabs her breasts in front of everyone. This sets Matt off. Even though Matt is trying to stick to his "no more sex between the two of them" policy, he rescues McKayla and takes her up to her room and can't help himself. Matt tells McKayla that he does not do relationships that it only be sex between them. McKayla agrees to this even though she is starting to have feelings for Matt. Over the weekend, McKayla is at the Columbia University Law Library doing research and meets another lawyer, Cal Carson. He offers to help her with her research if she will have coffee with him. Since Mac is attracted to him, she agrees. Come Monday she sees Cal and Matt talking the in the lobby in a heated debate. Cal looks up and sees Mac and gets excited. This causes major issues for Matt, who quickly walks McKayla away and up to his office. Once inside all hell breaks loose and we are left hanging for the next book. The chemistry and emotions between these two is just off the charts. Let's hope the next part is released early again because this waiting is killing me!

Get your one click finger ready.  Legal Affairs Stipulation is finally released.  The two week wait for part 2 in the Legal Affairs series (book) was worth the anticipation.  Sawyer Bennett is taking the readers for an erotic journey that may be more destructive than beneficial for Mac and Matt. Stipulation picks up where Objection left off.  Matt and Mac are working together on a case that leads to a trip to Chicago.  They are determined to keep their hands off one another and focus on the job.  After all it was supposed to be one night.  They have slipped once and can’t do it again.  Attraction over rules determination.  They are in a full on sexual affair.  The only problem is can they keep it purely sexual. It would seem that Matt has no problem in this department.  He expects Mac to be there whenever he gets the itch.  He expects her to receive him with open arms and no expectations.  But Mac is a woman.  Women have a hard time separating  their feelings when an affair goes on for more than one night.  She wants more from Matt.  Most of all she wants to be important to Matt.  She does not want to be his doormat.  She will have to make the choice of being a dormat or hanging onto her self respect. New players are introduced and Matt experiences the attack of the green eyed monster called jealousy.  He makes demands on Mac but refuses to bend to any of her demands.  There seems to be no room for negotiation. This installment ends on a cliffhanger.  The reader comes away from this installment with different feelings than the first installment.  Instead of feeling heady from a sexy relationship that is leading to more, this relationship is on a downward spiral.  The reader is angry with the way Matt treats Mac.  The reader senses that Matt has deep dark secrets that could destroy them both.   Where the next installment will lead is a mystery.  I am clueless.  Sawyer Bennett took us down a different path than what we expected from the first installment.  Legal Affairs is going to be one of those series that takes the reader for an emotional ride.  I am all in!  I can’t wait for the next installment, Legal Affairs Violation – part 3 will be out on February 7, 2014.  Only two weeks to fret.  The title alone has me nervous and anxious. I highly recommend this series.  Each installment is a quick read but leaves the reader feeling like they have invested their time wisely.  These are perfect when crunched for time, on lunch hour, sitting in doctor offices, or sitting in the school pick up line. I happily give installment 2, Legal Affairs Stipulation 5 stars.
