Synopsis: WARNING, LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF THE RISK from Matt Connover, Litigation God: Please do not attempt to read my story in public, as my sexual proclivities have been known to cause squirming in your seat, squeezing of your legs together and unintentional moaning, sometimes with spontaneous bursts of laughter at random moments. If you are offended by the fact that my oral skills are just as accomplished in the bedroom as they are the courtroom, then this book is not for you. There may be moments while reading my story that you get so turned on… so hot and bothered… that your squirming and moaning could turn maniacal in nature and neither I, nor the author, are responsible for the weird looks you may get. Notwithstanding the aforementioned warnings, if you assume the risk and read my tale in public, then I recommend you carry a spare set of panties with you. You will need them and you have been warned.”
My name is Matt Connover. I am a Litigation God.
Other lawyers quake before me.
Women crawl on their knees just to spend the night in my bed and when I’m finished with them, I walk away without a backward glance.
I am well satisfied with my life and there isn’t a damn thing I’d change about it.
That is, until McKayla Dawson came along.
She was meant to be for one night only.
But she got under my skin, and now I want her back underneath my body.
It’s torture working with her in my law firm… day in and day out. But I have to think maybe the Fates have intervened to throw us together because she is unlike anyone I’ve ever known, and thus I need to pay careful attention to these Legal Affairs.
Confessions of a Litigation God is a stand alone, full length novel. It follows the affair of Matt Connover and McKayla Dawson as told in the Legal Affairs Serial Romance, Volumes 1-6. This book is told strictly from Matt's point of view and has many additional scenes not included in the serial volumes.
What I Thought:
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.
