About the Author

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active daughter, as well as full-time servant to her adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both.

Sawyer also writes general and women’s fiction under the pen name S. Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe.

The story started for first 20% being so sex-centered I almost dismissed it and walked away...but I had enjoyed other books by the author and hung in there. Not the most original plot, but I did enjoy male point of view. And voice of male point of view not the most authentic and believable that I've read. That said...I did enjoy the read.

Since Confessions of a Litigation God is a male retelling we are seeing the story through Matthew’s eyes which means we learn more about him and honestly it isn’t always pleasant. Our hero seems to play a lot of games and refuses to admit his feelings to anyone, even himself. Now I get this is a typical guy thing, but I much prefer it when my heroes are a little love sick. By 60% or so into the book Matthew gets a little better, but he spent so much of the book in the beginning being an jerk that it was hard for me to fall in love with him. I think in this case being in his head actually hurt him for me. We don’t learn a ton about our heroine, McKayla but she totally came off as a pushover to me. Matt treats her horrible. He stands her up, they only have sex at work, he’s constantly pulling away and McKayla just keeps taking it from him and giving him more and more chances. Matt does have a lot going on in his life, but that is no reason to treat our heroine the way he does, it was a total turn off. When all was said and done I’m still a little half and half about Confessions of a Litigation God. We spent a majority of the book with our hero, Matthew being a jerk face then all of a sudden he just flips the switch and decides to go for it, I would have liked to see more development on his part. Matthew spends about 90% of the book having horrible thoughts and relationship reluctance, it really stopped me from being able to fall in love with him in a book boyfriend way. We really only get a week of “good Matt’, it just wasn’t enough for me. Personally, I would go ahead and read the Legal Affairs serial but I worry that I would end up hating our heroine, if she’s this big of a pushover in a male point of view book, I can’t image what reading her constant back and forth and forgiving him would be like in her own book. So that’s basically where I leave my recommendation. If you’ve read Legal Affairs serial and liked it then go for it. If you’re looking for a well done male retelling and are more forging when it comes to male stupidity then check this one out. Confessions of a Litigation God is a pretty hot read which I think you’ll enjoy.

I enjoyed the story from Mac's viewpoint, but it was even better from Matt's viewpoint. I loved the whole series with Mac and Matt.

I'm beginning to think I prefer the male point of view over the female one.  After being a female, I feel like I have enough insight into how a woman's mind works, but there is something magical about a story written by a woman in the male point of view.  I haven't read the companion installments from Mac's point of view, but I'm going to, especially if I want to know the whole story. What I really liked about this book was how honest Matt was.  I didn't always agree with his actions, but I was able to understand what motivated them.  Even when I wanted to thump him and hope he came to his senses, I still wanted him and Mac to be together.  It was very interesting to watch him fall for Mac and then fight it with everything he had, hurting them both in the process. I haven't even mentioned how hot this story was.  I mean the warning in the synopsis is totally spot on.  I had no idea Sawyer Bennett's writing had gotten so hot.  I'm glad to see her branching off but also look forward to reading whatever she puts out next.  I am hoping she'll write some new adult I can sink my teeth into.

So unfortunately I didn’t fall as hard as I originally expected,but at the same time I did enjoy it. In my opinion I would have enjoyed it more if the Legal Affairs series was written in a dual POV instead of only Mac’s. While COALG was solely Matt’s POV I felt like I was reading the same story with a few new scenes.  Again I feel like I should go on record that I will be a fan of Ms. Bennett’s work and I’m feeling so kind of way that I didn’t enjoy COALG as much as I did her other titles. The epilogue felt rushed, but at the same time I enjoyed knowing their life story was wrapped up for the best.

I didn't think it was possible to love Matthew F***ing Connover more than I already did, but I do. I loved reading his side of the story from The Legal Affairs series. It was interesting understanding his feelings better and realizing where he was coming from. I love how cocky and arrogant he is on the outside, but you realize he is actually very emotional on the inside. Even though I knew Matt would get his happy ending with McKayla, it was still a wonderful read.

Amazing!!!!! I like Matt in Legal Affairs, but surely fall in love with him in this book. Hope to have more coming from Sawyer. Really appreciated

I fell in love with Matt in Legal Affairs and fell even deeper in this one. Seeing his POV gives you the insight into what he went through and how he handled these situations. And most of the time his feelings and hurt would get him into more pain and heartache. While Matt is trying to keep things between him and Mac in a sex only relationship, Mac is trying to not fall in love with him. But how does she do that, he is a litigation God and sex on a stick and a fantastic lover. But when Marissa pulls her crap again and again, Matt has had enough and feels like Mac is trying to trap him. Even though he knows she is not, so he begins to put space between them. And Mac is hurt and after talking with Cal, they decide to go into business together. Opening their own law firm. Before Matt lets Mac resign, he has to confront Cal and find out what happened with him and Marissa and to forgive him. Cal and Matt will never be best friends again, but he can be civil for the sake of Mac. The ending is absolutely perfect and I am so glad Sawyer decided to give Matt is own story. So read the Legal Affairs from Mac's POV and then read this one. I think as a few others have said, you would not have to read Legal Affairs first to understand what is going on in this one. I would also like to see a story from Cal's POV and one from Macy's POV.

It felt like Matt could say or do anything he pleased to Mac but as long as he said, "Sorry", all was forgiven. It was sickening!!! Matt was selfish and cold-hearted throughout the entire story. Mac was weak and too permitting. She acted as if she had the upper hand when in reality, she did not. Sex filled about 70% of this book, non-stimulating sex at that. I also felt as if some attention for certain mayters was nonexistent. Overall, I am very disappointed. Sawyer Bennet has written some high quality books. This is not one of them. Matt and Mac's relationship was toxic.

Loved this story from Matt's point of view. However, there were times he still came off looking like a jerk. Look forward to more by this author

5 Amazing Stars Having never read the Legal Affairs novellas, I had no clue about Mac and Matt's story. With that being the case I do not believe my lack of reading those had a negative impact on my absolute enjoyment of this story. What can I say about Matt? The guy apparently can present an awesome oral arguement--come on now, I am talking about his litigation genious. He knows what he wants and he is not ashamed to take it until he is blown away by Mac. Matt is broken from a horrible past relationship and it has messed him up majorly. His encounter with Mac breaks him just a little more because he is jarred by his emotional response to her, a response he so did not sign up for. Despite his many efforts to keep Mac at a distance, emotionally that is, she finds her way into his heart, and mind. Matt softens and show how fierce and loyal he can be to someone he truly cares about. I love his transformation throughout the story. There is nothing better in my mind then a well written male POV. Many writers try to pull off the male POV but it is often just a female's version of what we want from the man. Bennett does an amazing job putting us in Matt's frame of mind and even though he really angers me at times it is impossible not to fall a little for this broken man. My best comparison is Tangled which in my mind had been the best written male POV, and now I find myself putting Matt Connover right up there with Drew Evans. I highly recommend this book and now I am eager to go back and read Mac's POV. The Epilogue was a lovely bonus and I guarantee readers will be entertained by this Litigation God. Thanks to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review

Matthew Connover is the kind of guy you love to hate. He's sexy, a bit jerky, and definitely full of himself. It's well earned, but still...you kind of want to smack him, then attack him. But, by the end of the series, I did fall for him pretty hard. Matt's got some baggage and it's been hard for him to let go of some old wounds. Mac slowly tears those walls down, but it's uncomfortable and not so easy.  In this book, we get Matt's perspective on his relationship with Mac. There were times that I couldn't stand him. BUT, I couldn't help seeing him through Mac's eyes and I saw the man who was shielding himself, protecting himself. And watching him slowly let down his guard with Mac, watching him fall for her, was pretty great. I'd also say that the sex scenes may have been even sexier from his POV.  While I don't really feel that this book was necessary, I did enjoy it very much. It was like getting the last piece of chocolate out the bag. I felt happy, satisfied and a bit spoiled. Plus, I couldn't have asked for a better epilogue. It was so Matt and Mac. I appreciated getting a glimpse into their life down the road. It was truly a special treat from beginning to end.  Quotes: ~She can pray all she wants right now, but I'm positive it's going to be my name being called out to the heavens when I'm finished with her.-Loc 429 ~I'm getting pretty damn good at lying to myself. I can spout all I want that it's easy to give up other women, but the full truth is...yeah, it's easy, because the only one I want is Mac.-Loc 1259 ~I'm literally putting myself in her arms and begging her to let me back in. It's the most humbling thing I've ever done in my life.-Loc 4919

Confessions of a Litigation God, A Legal Affairs Full Length Novel, Sawyer Bennett Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Confession time: I've never read any of Sawyer's novels before...yes, I know there's lots of them, and I know they're incredibly popular but – so many books, so little time! I've looked at them, and always meant to try one so when I saw this one for review I jumped at the chance – and wasn't disappointed. Its a terrific read, full of hot erotic sex, humour and a really good back story. Essential that part for me, sex without story is pointless reading for me. Anyway, this is the Legal Affairs story, but told from Matt's POV not Mac's. I've read a few novels where there's one in each main persons POV, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. There needs to be something new and different added to the story IMO for it to work, and of course as I haven't read legal affairs then I can't comment on that side. Matt: wow what a great male lead, hot and sexy, very outwardly full of himself, he calls himself “Matt F Cking Connover” and seems to be a typical Male Jerk type of character at first, but as we learn more of him we see a different side, and find out where his behaviour comes from. The problem is will he change for Mac, does he want to change? Can she accept him as he is, or does she need more? Its a great read, funny little incidents that made me smile – and Matt too, which he found unusual, full of insights that make the reader think more about the characters and their actions, its kind of part sexy, erotic read and part psychological perception where we work out what makes a person act as he/she does. I love those type works where we see the reasons for behaviours, I can't just accept a person changing, but need the why, the reason for the change. I have to see what made them the way they are, and how they overcome it. That’s done really well here. The story is great as I’ve said, and the sex scenes...well, hot, sensual and very erotic. Perfect in the story, they fit the characters really well, and show just how deep the connection between Matt and Mac is. Stars: Five all the way, its a great read. Arc supplied via Netgalley

Monday, May 19, 2014 Legal Affairs - Confessions of a Litigation God by Sawyer Bennett After the delightful torture of reading the Legal Affairs serials in installments every two weeks I was left feeling sad that it was all over.  Then I heard about Confessions of a Litigation God and learned that not only would I be getting more Matt Connover, but that it would be a full length novel!  I was overjoyed with anxious excitement.   There are times when the male POV version of a story just falls flat making me wish I had skipped it; and then there are times where it elevates the characters and the story to a whole new level.  Confessions of a Litigation God is the latter. Matt Connover is a super sexy, powerful, rich attorney.  He knows what he wants out of life and isn't afraid to live his life the way he wants, or at least he's convinced himself that this is true.  In Confessions we learn so much more about Matt and what makes him tick.  The circumstances of his past have left him far more damaged than I previously thought.  I actually found my heart aching for Matt at the times where, during Legal Affairs, I honestly wanted to hurt him (especially in his family jewels).  The intensity that Matt approaches life with truly surprised me.  I knew Matt enjoyed the things he did, both in his professional life as well as his personal life, but I never imagined how hyper focused and driven by carnal desires his actions really were.  Matt is a man that aims to please, and not just himself.  His intensity really revved up the heat factor in Confessions!  When Matt described his desire for Mac, his need to please her, and the pleasure he gains from a job well done... Well, lets just say I was insanely jealous of Mac in those moments!  If only our significant others were half as attentive as Matt Connover!  Confessions of a Litigation God is H.O.T! I cannot think of one thing I wanted to know about Matt that wasn't directly answered in Confessions.  Confessions ends just a touch later than Legal Affairs.  The epilogue was the perfect little bit of extra that the series needed to end on the perfect note and left me with a big smile on my face.  Sawyer Bennett did and amazing job telling Matt's story without the "I just read this" feeling that too often happens with these type of books.  Every Legal Affairs fan NEEDS to read Matt's story!

Anyone that knows me knows that when I love a book I go a bit crazy and shamelessly promote it until people tell me enough. That's the way I felt about the Legal Affairs series. It was brilliantly written, it gave me a strong, take no prisoners heroine, and a devastatingly handsome, yet a bit cocky and self absorbed leading man. Sometimes I wanted to get naked and frisky with him, others I wanted to smack the smugness out of him. But back then I didn't understand the true story behind the man, now I do... Confessions of a Litigation God is Matt's POV. This is not the same old LA with just a few changed words, this is Matt's story, the good, the bad and the ugly. We learn what drives him to be one of the best in his field, but we also learn what drove him to detach himself from a deep connection to another human being and just make physical satisfaction a priority. His love for his son will melt your heart and his sexiness and 'skills' will have you wishing you were on the recipient of said skills. Sawyer is an excellent storyteller, she always presents characters that are believable and likable, she transports them from the pages of a book to an almost real persona. In this case, Matt is the man men want to be and women want to do. This is an absolute worth read and even though you can totally read it as a standalone, I would recommend to read the LA series so you get the whole experience. Ladies, hold on to your panties and have an extra pair handy, Matt f'cking Connover has arrived!
