Basic story: Cal and Macy have an attraction that just won’t quit. When she comes to him asking for legal help, he’s more than happy to oblige, but he takes his work seriously. While he’s assisting her in her case, they can’t be carrying on together. Macy readily agrees but as far as she’s concerned, the way she feels with Cal is more important than the case.
Cal knows that he’s fooling himself that things with Macy are only physical. Beneath her bravado he can see real pain and a loneliness that makes him want to slay her demons. But will Macy let him?
Macy never thought she’d crave intimacy from anyone. She simply never had it before, so showing vulnerability and affection don’t come easily to her. But things are different with Cal – he’s open-minded, knows when not to push her, but most importantly, he gets her. Could he be the one to help her with her issues? Or will a very public family scandal rip them apart?
Why you should read this: If you read Clash and enjoyed it, I think you’ll want to read this next instalment. It goes into greater depth character-wise and I really feel that I understand what makes this couple tick. The situations and the nature of their relationship is very sexual and titillating, but their vulnerabilities are what kept my interest. I have a feeling I can guess what happened to Macy, but I’m sure there are some surprises ahead. Cal is a very interesting hero – much more open-minded that I thought he’d be. I want more.
What you might hate: I honestly don’t know! You don’t like smut maybe? If so, you picked the wrong book and the wrong blog! I would advise you to maybe read the series when all the books have been released – as there is a cliffhanger at the end of this one. You may love them – I hate them unless I can get my hands off the next book!
Rating: 4/5 for a sexy, naughty and very interesting relationship. Macy was a lot more ‘human’ (if that makes sense) in this story than in Clash, which I’m grateful for.
Grind is out now.
