Clash (verb): to conflict, disagree.
It might be fair to say that I despise Macy Carrington. She slings insults with precision, not caring about the destruction she leaves in her wake. We clash in a battle of wills every time we’re around each other, and yet… I still fantasize about being lodged deep within her body.
Clash (verb): to come together or collide.
I have never encountered someone that grates me the way Cal Carson does. His pompous, arrogant demeanor. A holier-than-thou attitude. Any interaction with “Saint Cal” ends in a verbal clash of epic proportions, and yet… there’s no one I’d rather have in my bed than him.
Clash (noun): a battle, fight or skirmish.
Her breathy moans mingle with the sound of our flesh coming together, clashing with the silence that surrounds us, dispelling any notions I once had about Macy Carrington.
Maybe I can break down her walls if we can call a truce to this battle.
He whispers filthy words in my ear, provoking feelings I never knew were possible. The burning desire in his touch clashes with everything I once believed about Cal Carson.
Maybe he can be the balm I need to soothe my broken soul, if only temporarily.

One Line: Talk about HOT and HEAVY! Cal and Macy scorched the pages and then some!
In My Opinion: Add to cart!
Whoa! Just when you think Bennett can’t get any better or any hotter, she goes and writes something like Clash. Hot damn, this is one is sizzling. Told in alternating POVs, my favorite style, I liked getting to know Cal and Macy. I don’t remember much of Macy from the Legal Affairs series, but I loved Cal. Their relationship was highly entertaining, they loved taking jabs at each other and really can’t be in a room with one other without starting something. They had a love-hate relationship, but the attraction was very obvious. I loved how brazen and open Macy is. It surprised me, and Cal for that matter, in a good way.
Poor Cal is torn between not being able to stop thinking about Macy, especially after a certain pantry scene, and trying to work things out with his ex-girlfriend. I felt conflicted about him during this time. I know that he’s a nice guy, respectable and practical. I understood his reasoning for doing what he did, but it was pretty clear where things were going to go. Most of this book adds to the progression of Cal’s life, and not much in the way of his relationship with Macy. Macy is one that intrigues me quite a bit. You hardly get anything real about the girl and it has me questioning what is behind those walls. I definitely want to know more about her, even more so than seeing their relationship progress, because I can already kind of see where that’s going.
Clash sets the tone for the rest of the series, which is more of a serial kind of read. Written as a three-part story, if you’re an impatient reader, you’ll definitely want to wait until all three parts are out before reading, because that ending had me begging for more! All I can say is Bennett starts out hot and heavy and leaves you panting and desperate by the end. Sawyer, you’re such a tease!
