RELEASE WEEK BLITZ & 4 1/2 STAR REVIEW: Sexy Lies and Rock & Roll by Sawyer Bennett

☆ ☆ New Release from Sawyer Bennett ☆ ☆

Opposites attract. Then they fall in love.

From New York Times 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.

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

I'm starting to think that Sawyer Bennett never sleeps. I feel like as soon as I finish one book, another is out just a few weeks later. But she does churn out quality books and this book is no exception. 

Evan is a rock star in need of a lawyer. Emma is a straightlaced lawyer in need of a case to bring her out of her shell. When her boss (who also happens to be Evan's aunt) assigns her to Evan's case, she finds herself in front of the one of the sexiest men she has ever seen. Evan manages to ruffle her feathers and gets a quick glimpse of what she is hiding underneath her stuffy lawyer exterior. And he wants more of that. But not Emma. She handles Evan's case with no problem and goes on her merry way. 

Fast forward five weeks and Evan is again in need of a lawyer, but this time it is a bit different. He needs someone to go on tour with him to act as a PR rep as well as handle a copyright matter and the person he wants is Emma. It takes a bit of convincing and the promise of a career advancement, but Emma eventually accepts. She finds herself not only tour with Evan, but they also sharing a tour bus with him. And this is where the fun begins. 

Evan and Emma are complete opposites and they definitely know how to push each other's buttons. In the beginning Emma is all business and just wants to get the job done and move on, but Evan is determined to keep her around. Throughout the book these two battle it out and it is SO GOOD. He knows that deep down there is a wild side to Emma and he wants to unleash it. He goes as far as to purchase tour appropriate clothes (not the prim and proper stuff she wears on a daily basis) that leads to this fun interaction:
“What do you think you are doing?” Emma rasps out in between panting breaths. She looks at me with unfiltered accusation.
“Seems to me I was kissing you,” I toss back at her, holding myself in check so I don’t launch myself at that hot little body.
“You can’t do that,” she huffs, and then licks her lips.
Those lips. On my cock. I absolutely fucking need them there at some point.
“Emma,” I saw on a low rumble of need. “Come here.”
She shakes her head, denying me. “We can’t. It’s not proper.”
“I am not a proper type of guy,” I warn her as I take a step toward her.
She holds her hands out in a silent plea for me to come no closer. “You’re my boss. I’m your employee.” 
“Which means you have to do what I say,” I tell her with an evil grin. “And I say you should come here and let me kiss you again.”
“Evan,” she hisses at me in reproach. “I get you are a man, and that you have physical needs…but that doesn’t mean that you can just take me because I’m convenient to you. And you may be my boss, but you don’t have the right.”
I can’t help it. I burst out laughing, throwing my head back and closing my eyes as they start to water. When I dare to look back at her, the bewilderment clouding her face cracks me up again.
“Oh, God…Emma,” I say between chortles. “Could you be any more proper? Well…I guess if you were British you could be, but Christ almighty, you’re fucking adorable.” She narrows her eyes at me.
“I don’t find this funny.”
I sober instantly, my dick still achingly hard, and I tell her huskily, “No. It certainly wasn’t funny when your tongue was sliding against mine or you were grinding on my cock.”
“I…I…I didn’t…” she stammers, and then gasps when my hand shoots out and wraps around the back of her neck.
I pull her in a little closer, only so I can peer down at her. Her chest is heaving again, and my cock thumps in my pants when her eyes cut down to my lips in anticipation. 
Yeah… she wants me, but she can’t reconcile herself to it.
“Emma,” I say softly, and then bend down just to kiss the tip of her nose. I see the surprise in her eyes when I pull back. “You are neither convenient or here just because I have needs. I’ve wanted to fuck you since that day in the police station when we first met, and that has nothing to do with the work you were hired for. You also have the right to say no to me—”
Her eyes cut down to the clothes on the bed.
“Not on the clothes… you’re going to accept them and wear them,” I tell her with no room for argument. “But if you don’t want me … if you don’t want to know what if feels like for me to be balls deep in you… you only have to say no.”
Emma let out a tiny moan right around the time I said the word “balls”, and while I am absolutely certain I could have her right now with a little more persuasion, I release my hold on the back of her neck. 
“However, until such time,” I say as I step backward and turn to the door, “ I expect you to dress like you belong on this tour with me, and I expect you to be at my shows. I’ll have someone bring you a backstage pass for tonight.”
She doesn’t say a word as I walk out of the bedroom, through the bus and down the steps. I hope to God I don’t run into anyone right away, as I need a few minutes to get my dick back under control.
But outside of that tiny worry, I’m filled with victorious elation, because I just learned that, without a doubt, prim little Emma Peterson wants me as much as I want her.
I just loved how flustered her made her and while it was obvious she wanted him, it was just going to take a little, okay a lot of, convincing on Evan's part. But once they do get together it is HOT. These two had fantastic chemistry and once I really started reading, I had a hard time putting it down. 

I highly recommend this book, especially if you are a Sawyer Bennett fan. Yes, the plot may be a bit cliche and predictable at times, but it didn't matter. I found myself wanting these two to work things out,live happily ever after, and have little rock star babies. And there are whole bunch of delightful secondary characters in the this book, including Emma's dog, that provided a bit of comic relief and support that they both needed. And by support I mean a swift kick in the butt that we may all need from time to time. 

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released more than 30 books and has been featured on both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists on multiple occasions. 

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone. 

Sawyer likes her Bloody Mary’s strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active toddler, as well as full-time servant to two adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or a combination of the two.
