WARNING, LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF THE RISK from Matt Connover, Litigation God: Please do not attempt to read my story in public, as my sexual proclivities have been known to cause squirming in your seat, squeezing of your legs together and unintentional moaning, sometimes with spontaneous bursts of laughter at random moments. If you are offended by the fact that my oral skills are just as accomplished in the bedroom as they are the courtroom, then this book is not for you. There may be moments while reading my story that you get so turned on… so hot and bothered… that your squirming and moaning could turn maniacal in nature and neither I, nor the author, are responsible for the weird looks you may get. Notwithstanding the aforementioned warnings, if you assume the risk and read my tale in public, then I recommend you carry a spare set of panties with you. You will need them and you have been warned.”

My name is Matt Connover. I am a Litigation God.
Other lawyers quake before me.
Women crawl on their knees just to spend the night in my bed and when I’m finished with them, I walk away without a backward glance.

I am well satisfied with my life and there isn’t a damn thing I’d change about it.

That is, until McKayla Dawson came along. 

She was meant to be for one night only.
But she got under my skin, and now I want her back underneath my body. 

It’s torture working with her in my law firm… day in and day out. But I have to think maybe the Fates have intervened to throw us together because she is unlike anyone I’ve ever known, and thus I need to pay careful attention to these Legal Affairs.

This was my first introduction to any of The Legal Affairs Series, I wasn't familiar with the story, the characters or even that I was reading an existing story from a different P.O.V. Without knowing what I was missing out on I'm happy to see the story for the first time through the eyes of Matt.

My feelings of Matt is that he is intelligent, sexy, tender and strong not only in the physical sense but in his conviction and thought process. He's open to us as readers about his vulnerability since his divorce and his uncompromising notion of protecting himself by closing himself of emotionally. This is where for me he differs from your traditional playboy, his attitude is borne out of self preservation:

“I’m not putting myself in a position ever again where I’m the one who suffers in the end.”

And so his repeated use of One Night Only, a guilt free service that provides "no strings sex" and his eventual introduction to Number 3498; McKayla "Mac" Dawson.
I can truly say the I like Mac, I rarely like let alone really like female leads but she's brilliant, funny and feisty and you can understand why Matt is so taken with her.

"I know I may come off as an asshole more than ninety-five percent of the time, but the truth is, I have a big heart too. I just don't let women in it. No, all of my heart is spent on just a few things.."

Those being, his son, his parents and his Law Practice. Soon we see Mac making her way onto that list and Matts internal conflict between trying to keep it simple and exploring his deep feeling of need for her.

Sexually they are explosive.

Emotional they are responsive to one another.

And mentally it freaks him out hence some displays of dick head male behaviour in his need to reiterate to her his unwillingness to pursue any form of resemblance to a relationship.

This book is both hot and sexy but surprisingly it offers something a little bit more in the way of emotion and this is what took it to the next level for me, It had a more conscious feel than the regular run of the mill books of this formula.

Traditionally I don't tend to read alternative POV books but for those of you that have read the previous I'd urge you to give this a go too.

I'm mean come on... it's "Matt f**king Connover."
