ABOUT THE BOOK:
One year ago, I graduated from law school and embarked on a career as a purveyor of high priced legal shenanigans.
Six months ago, my boyfriend dumped me when I thought he might be proposing.
Two weeks ago, I got drunk and joined a secret sex club.
Two days ago, I had a torrid one-night stand with a stranger.
Today? Well, today I’m contemplating having an affair with my boss.
Matt Connover is all kinds of forbidden temptation wrapped up in a deliciously wicked package, and he’s made it clear… he’s only interested in sex.
My name is McKayla Dawson but everyone calls me Mac. I work at the powerhouse firm of Connover & Crown, LLP, where the law has never felt so hot.
But between you and me, I’m afraid my heart won’t survive these Legal Affairs.
Legal Affairs is a serial romance with a whole lot of hot and a little bit of funny. It has six volumes that will be released every two weeks, the first one, entitled Objection, on January 10, 2014.

OBJECTION is the first release in Sawyer Bennett’s sexy adult, contemporary, serial novella series focusing on high powered attorney Matt Connover and lawyer McKayla Dawson. The premise follows Matt and Mac as they embark on a one night affair-no commitments, no promises, no personal details. But all things change when the firm at which McKayla works is bought out by Connover and Crown and McKayla’s new boss is her one night stand Matt Connover.
Sawyer Bennett has written a sexy, smart, engaging and sensual introduction to a series that will prove sleeping with the boss may have some perks of its’ own. We follow as Matt tries desperately to keep McKayla at a distance but working closely with a woman you know intimately from head to toe is becoming more difficult with each encounter.
OBJECTION is the beginning to a new series that will catch your attention immediately-from the polished cover to the words in between-Sawyer Bennett proves she is a worthy opponent in the literary world.

Why I Decided To Write A Serial
By Sawyer Bennett
Serials can be frustrating to some readers. Me personally? What bugs me about them is the waiting time between releases and wondering when the end will come. So I kept that in mind when I launched into Legal Affairs and decided to release them quickly, cheaply and with a definite ending.
I wanted to try a new project, coming off the heels of the Off Series which was very successful. I had a very specific formula in mind… sexy + funny. I also wanted to try my hand at writing a legal themed book since I’m a lawyer by first trade. With this new formula, I thought… “Why not try a serial, where I could make each volume like an episode of ‘must see TV’ where you had a single story line that was actually part of a bigger picture?”
Legal Affairs was soon born of those thoughts. I decided to limit the series to just six volumes, each about 12,000 words or so, with the series finale coming in at just over 17,000 words. I bumped up the heat factor, so beware… this is hotter than the Off Series. I blushed when my mom read it. Blushed again when the lawyers in my firm read it.
Overall, I loved how it turned out. I felt I was able to convey a realistic struggle between the hero and heroine, with each volume having a true conflict that was resolved for that particular story line, but still made you wonder if they would get their HEA in the end.
More than anything, Legal Affairs is a test of sorts. I wanted to see how well I could mesh my knowledge of the law into a steamy romance. My hope is that if Legal Affairs is successful, I will do a full length novel series with a similar theme. Maybe a law firm filled with sexy, quirky lawyers that may be a bit unethical but in the end want justice for their clients. I’ll add in plenty of snark, humor… and oh, yeah… hot sex!! Think of it as Sex In The City meets Ally McBeal.
