I am a huge fan of Sawyer Bennett and couldn't resist a free read. I enjoy Sawyer's writing and I was especially excited as the story was set in the law sector, as strong headed lawyers made for some hot characters and I was not disappointed.
The story begins with McKayla aka Mac getting ready to meet a mystery man for a very organised and expensive one night stand. Mac was roped into joining her friend's elite club after moping over her ex for too long. Mac talks herself into it and goes on to have the best sex of her life (of course). Satiated and happy, Mac has no qualms with leaving her one night stand in the past, that is until her new boss just happens to be-yep, you've guessed it number 134, her mystery man. The two lawyers are now working together and that opens up a whole can of worms.
As the story began I did wonder why the whole organised sex club thing was used rather than just a normal hook up in a bar, I'm not sure if it was more for Matt's character or Mac's. And perhaps as the story continues it may have more relevance? who knows. I liked the chemistry between the two main characters from the very first moment they met and the night they did spend together was hot!
Mac is a strong, independent woman and of course I loved that. It would be all too easy for a woman to back down when she learns she has been intimate with her new boss but I loved the fire and determination in Mac and she made it clear to Matt she was his equal and he couldn't treat her unfairly in work.
Matt is this sexy, high powered attorney with the usual phobia to commitment like the rest of the Alphas. Of course Mac makes him feel more than he should after just one night and I can tell he is going to struggle with Mac working underneath him. I look forward to the law side mixing with the romance element as I like when there is another storyline running through the book and we will see more of Matt's character as he does what he does best. My only niggle is the character names; Mac and Matt are just a little too close so at times I felt it didn't read well but other than that, I can't wait for more.
This was a great introduction to the characters and the series. There was just enough to tease me about Mac and Matt for me to look forward to the next instalment. I can't wait to see where it goes from here as I just know their plan to stay away from each other is doomed before it is put in motion. You should definitely check this one out!
