My life is in a tail-spin and I’m about ready to crash.

I’ve cut Matt Connover out of my life… well, at least out of my bedroom… but I still have to deal with him at work. I have Lorraine intent on raining hell and destruction down upon me, which at least provides a nice diversion from my miserable feelings over Matt.

★★★★★! Legal Affairs, part 3 of 6. Young attorney is served a shocker when she meets her new boss aka member #134 in secret sex club!

“I can’t believe I just got cock blocked by you… while I was inside of you.”

I read Objection, part 1 in the Legal Affairs serial, then I skipped over to the box set

For my spoiler-free review of part 1:
Objection, Legal Affairs part 1

For my spoiler-free review of part 2-6:

And then be sure to enjoy story from Matt’s POV in:
Gah, the 50 page "book" is killing me!

Still, a really really nice read, love the characters and the writing it really good!

Asshole hadn’t even bought me a Big Mac, and I’d made him howl with pleasure. Where’s the gratitude?

This was another fast read. I am really enjoying these novellas. Not sure why she did not just write one full length book but who cares what I think!!

Mac and Matt try to keep it strictly business but the attraction between them is too much. We find out a little bit more about Matt in this book…. He still does not do relationships and we sort of find out the reason why.

As this series continues... our two main characters now play a very dangerous game of the heart...
She knows he was clear: no relationship is happening... yet she is wired to want just what she cannot have with him.

He pushes at every wall she puts up... She tries to protect herself and starts a friendship with another. Only to know... there is no other but the one who will not commit.

This series is getting better and better!!!! But Sawyer I have to admit that I have a love/hate relationship with you. I love the amazing characters you're created (mmmm, especially my Matt) but I hate the fact that I have to wait 14 more days!!!!!! Just kidding!!!! Lol.

It seems that our Mac wants more than just sex from our favorite attorney. But even when she has a man like Cal that could distract her, nothing can get Matt off her mind. Even learning part of his secret isn't enough.

I would normally find a character like Mac mildly annoying. The yo-you effect and all. But I love the battle she wages. The desire and attraction she faces while knowing that he isn't giving her what she wants. Sawyer does a great job describing the nature of her feelings without m

This picks up with Mac and Matt keeping their relationship strictly professional although Mac can't shake the Matt Connover blues. The only thing she has to look forward to is a date with Cal Carson and even with that, she wishes it were Matt.

Of course, Matt is at the Gala and when he sees Mac with Cal, he makes his play in the only way an smart Alpha male would. Mac and Matt fall back into bed and Mac learns a few more things about Matt's past. With this revelation, she slowl

Not only does Matt make it clear that she's the "woman he's fucking," but she finds out that Cal used to be his best friend, and the reason they are no longer best friends is because Cal, in a drunken haze, slept with Matt's then wife.

Mac learns a lot more about Matt through Cal and more things come up as they go on that hurt her. But she can't stop her addiction to sleeping with her boss.

But that's not the only thing that hurts her. She gets devastating news which makes her all alone

Violation picks up where Stipulation left off and there is oh so much going on in this part. Mac has had enough of Matt when he refuses to tell her why he is taking Lorraine out for dinner so she cuts him loose, no more sex! They will be strictly business only. With that in mind Mac decides to accept Cals invitation to be his date at an event that Matt will be at.
Mac receives some devastating news at the end of this installment and we are left with a bit of a cliffy so I'm off to read Mitigatio

The story was still moving along.

After McKayla rejected Matt, said she couldn't be his sex buddy anymore, both of them had been in a grumpy mood especially Matt.

'Asshole hadn't even bought me a Big Mac, I'd made him howl with pleasure. Where's the gratitude?'

Oh, I really, really loved her! LOL

Matt stands in the door way with his arm open to her....she can't believe that he is really there for her in her time of need but he Matt changing his mind about there situation of there relationship just being about SEX....if you ask me I think he is having a change of heart !!

This installment of Legal Affairs is full laughter, tears, manipulation, truth, betrayal and of course shaking the apartment off its sex !!

This series is so good and each installment picks up where the last leaves off. This one is quite emotional with McKayla losing her mother but Matt shows up and his vulnerable side shows up. Mac accepts a date to the gala with Cal and Matt shows up with a pretty blonde on his arm and, again, his possessiveness comes out to play. There is so much back and forth, will they or won't they...

Cal Carson asked me out… and I accepted.

Matt’s not going to like that.

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. WOW, this is getting better and better. Mac is trying her best to keep her mind off Matt and she does a good job for about 10 days. While at a ball for lawyers, with Cal she sees Matt walk in with a blonde on his arm. When Matt ask her to dance, while Cal is on the phone, he wants them to leave right them. Does she go with him and leave Cal alone? Can she be with Matt and keep her heart safe? Will Matt realize how ...more

Starting to feel a little like an indecisive school girl. Matt has redeemed himself a little in Book 3, but there's still something about Cal. I think he's just a good guy, and Matt's still the playa I counting on breaking Mac's heart. It's going to be a loooong two weeks waiting for "Mitigation."

McKayla just can't resist her attraction towards Matt, nothing new about their relationship though.

And finally... some shred of information about Matt. Although his whole character still leaves me puzzled.

Wow this is like fire playing with fire! Matt is still a jackass and Mac is right about cutting him out from her life now. And then comes in Cal and a little jealously to spice up some tension ;)
