Grind (verb): to weaken or destroy gradually

Macy Carrington is not the woman I once thought her to be.

What she does not allow her heart to feel, she gives with her body. The sex between us is explosive and depraved. I’ve done things with her that would never have crossed my wildest imagination, and I can’t ever seem to get enough.

But now I want more from her. I want to figure out her dark secret, expose it and then help her to heal from it. I know, without a doubt, that Macy is capable of love, and I will grind her down until I make her accept the truth of it.

Grind (verb): to wear down, polish, or sharpen by friction

Cal Carson is not the man I once thought him to be.

Strong, determined, sexy as hell and a beast in the bedroom. He is every woman’s fantasy.

He is my fantasy.

But no matter how hard Cal tries to grind me down, my heart and secrets are mine and mine alone.

One Line: That ending was just plain torture! I NEED MORE!

In My Opinion: Add to cart!

Can we say HOT?! Good lord, and I thought Clash was a scorcher. Bennett took Grind to the next level into “blazing sun” territory. The chemistry these two have are off the charts and I’m not ashamed to say I enjoyed every minute of it, even though I’m not one to prefer those types of sexual adventures. Despite the provocative nature of the book, because there’s no denying that it is that, there’s also an intriguing and highly entertaining story that surrounds it. Cal and Macy are excellent characters in their own rights and it was so much fun getting to know them better.

Macy is quite the enigma and I am so damn curious as to what her secret could be. After meeting her family I have a small clue as to what it might be, but I could be wrong. She’s clearly a complex character and I was surprised at how easily she started letting her guard down with Cal. Admittedly, he’s a hard guy to resist, so I’ll give her that. I’m hoping Bennett doesn’t hold back with her story in Yield because we still barely know anything about her. The suspense is killing me!

We see a bit of Cal’s legal expertise in Grind and I enjoyed it immensely. He’s just a genuinely good guy, but he also has flair and confidence, which makes him very sexy and appealing. Macy certainly knows how to test his limits and it’s crazy the kinds of emotions and actions she can pull out of him. Cal shocked me with some of the things he did, that’s for sure.

What I appreciated most about their story was that they both admitted that, given the nature and timing of their relationship, they weren’t in love just yet. The strong feelings are there, of course, but it felt more realistic that these two just really cared for each other and connected on a deeper level, but kept it grounded because they both didn’t really know that true love was to begin with.

In the end, all I have to say is – why, Sawyer, why?! Why must you torture me like this?! That ending was brutal and I seriously don’t think I’ve been more curious to know what happens next. I highly suggest you, if you’re as impatient as I am, to wait until the last book, Yield, is out before you start Grind, because you’ll immediately want to read it to see how it all ends. Ah, I’m dying to know!
