I’ve seen a new side to Matt Connover. He’s proven to me that there is something inside him other than icy control and masculine force.

I’ve seen care… tenderness… even protectiveness.

I’ve seen vulnerability.

But Matt Connover’s issues run deep. I know Cal hurt him deeply, and he keeps himself protected because of that. I also sense there is something more to his pain that even I cannot comprehend.

Matt is struggling between what he knows and what he wants.
I’m struggling with boundaries and how to protect my own fragile heart.

This time I’m drawing a line in the sand and Matt can either step over to join me, or these Legal Affairs are finished forever.

One Line: The beginning of big changes, I loved it!

In My Opinion: Add to cart!

Mitigation starts off right where Violation left off, right when you think Matt has turned a leaf and things are going to change, he’s even more closed off and adamantly against a real relationship with Mac. Luckily for us Mac fans, she holds strong and knows she deserves more from Matt, so even though it tortures them both to be apart, this is what happens during this installment.

It was fun, although a bit heartbreaking, to see these two being apart. It kills Mac, but she knows she’s doing what’s right for her. Because this is told from Mac’s perspective, you get the full effect of what she’s feeling/thinking and how miserable she is without Matt, but you also get obvious glimpses at how Matt is dealing with this fallout. He does do some things that upset Mac, and me personally, but I have high hopes that things will turn around and that these two can work it out.

This installment was more about the emotions these two battle and whether or not they choose to embrace this new and scary relationship, or play it safe and run away. Will they or won’t they work it out?! I can’t wait to find out! Once again Bennett ends things at the most opportune time and I am seriously dying for the next one.

    I can’t wait to start this series. I have the first book, but haven’t had time to get to it. Just read her other new release On the Rocks, and I really liked it. This seems different from her others. Great review!
