Release Day Review ~ Sexy Lies and Rock & Roll by Sawyer Bennett

Book Description:

From NYT Bestselling author, Sawyer Bennett, comes a SEXY new stand alone romance…

When you’re a rock god, fame and fortune are your two best friends, but they can be fickle bitches. Everyone wants a piece of me and I have no clue how to deal with it all. I’m being sued, pressured to sign contracts, and fending off rabid women who want to steal my virtue.
Well, not that I really have any virtue, but still… my life has turned completely bat-shit crazy.

That’s why I need Emma Peterson. She got me out of a bit of a jam once, and I know she can do it again. The only problem is that sweet, prim and totally straight-laced Emma doesn’t want anything to do with me. Not professionally, and certainly not personally.

It’s not that I want her in that way. Let’s be realistic… it would take a crow bar of epic proportions to get her to spread those legs for me.

No, I only want her legal expertise and for her to make sense of my crazy world. It’s a good thing I have just the leverage to make her do my bidding, because her refusal is not an option.

*Sexy Lies and Rock & Roll is a hot, romantic comedy stand alone.

“He makes me feel something I’ve never felt before. I feel wanted.”

Sawyer Bennett delivers a fun, swoon worthy read in Sexy Lies and Rock & Roll. This was a book that read quick and I sped through it so fast I had to check if it was a novella. The pacing is fantastic as you are whisked away into the lives of Emma and Evan. Sexy Lies and Rock & Roll combines my love of anything surrounding the legal profession and of course a rock star, so I really did get the best of both worlds.

“One minute, we’re fighting, and the next, we’re engaged in the most sensuously epic kiss of my lie. It was no-holds barred. It was carnal. It was so dirty. Especially when his 
finger –

Emma is a quiet wall flower in every sense of the word, she is most at home with her nose stuck in a book whether it be legislative or romance or anything else that catches her eye. Emma keeps herself to herself and is in a job where she isn’t happy but it pays the bills. Emma wants to go into contract law and she is literally biding her time until a better suited job opportunity comes up. Emma lives a lonely existence and it seems that is the way she wants it, with a slobbering puppy and a cat for company she seems happy, but is she?

Evan had a rapid rise to fame after releasing his first hit single as an indie artist. Evan is extremely level headed, humble and not your run of the mill pop star, his parents were not hands on at all and he was raised more or less by his Aunt Midge, who owns the law firm that Emma currently works for. When Evan finds himself in a bit of bother, Midge sends Emma to rescue her nephew…now their paths have crossed, is Midge playing match maker?

Sawyer Bennett delivers a hard-fought romance between these two and it is this battle of wills and chemistry that keeps those pages frantically turning as you will this couple along. Evan and Emma are total opposites in every way but they both have that physical attraction to one and other that could only end up going one way. With Evan being the carefree, fun-loving artist and Emma being the intellectual, boring, prim & proper lawyer he has to fight through her walls and rigidity to discover the hot, passionate and fiery woman underneath…but once she is unleashed these two are SMOKING!!

“Are you going to make love to me, Evan?”
“No, Emma… I’m not. But I am going to fuck you and trust me… you’ll prefer it that way.”

Evan is completely smitten with Emma after their first meeting and he does everything in his power to ensure that he is in her company again. With their first meeting, not exactly being very harmonious the chances of that are slim to none so Evan exercises his power as Midge’s nephew to get Emma on his tour bus for a month to do his contract law. With the carrot dangling in front of her being the answers to all her prayers Emma decides to go and now the battle is well and truly on.

“…I love how I can play this body as easily as my guitar…the sounds you make are as beautiful as the music I make.”

These two characters were adorable in every way and this book centres on their relationship from frenemies, to friends and then to lovers. There is a little angst, but nothing over the top and while being a little predictable for an honest romance this hit the spot. Sometimes you just want a quick, easy, hot and steamy read and this one definitely fulfilled that brief. Totally loved it!!
