Clash is the first part of Cal and Macy's story from Sawyer Bennett. This serial is a spin-off of her Legal Affairs series featuring Matt and Mac. I hadn't read their story before starting this one, but I didn't have any problems understanding anything. I do want to go back and read their story though, as I really like them so far in this story.
Cal and Macy really don't like each other, unfortunately for them they share the same best friend. Because of Mac, these two are forced to see each other more than they would like resulting in verbal insults every time. Cal thinks that Macy is nothing more than a rich uptight snob, and Macy thinks that Cal has a holier-than-thou attitude. But when the tension between them finally explodes, they quickly realize that they might not have really known the other at all. Now all they can think about is how the hottest sex of their lives was with each other. But can these two find something in each other that they never expected, or will it lead to disaster?
I have to admit that I liked Cal right away, but not Macy. Cal was different than pretty much every hero that I have ever read before. He was able to admit his mistakes (and he knows he made a huge one!) and he was honest about what he wanted. He wasn't afraid of commitment and he genuinely wants to settle down! That was so refreshing to me, and I loved that he was so envious of what Mac and Matt have. He knows that Macy is pretty much the exact opposite of what he is looking for, except the one area that they are surprisingly perfect for one another, the bedroom. Macy came off exactly how Cal depicted her, although the more that we get to see of her, she also comes off as a bit crazy-pants as well. Seeing her thoughts through her diary, I was actually beginning to wonder what kind of crazy she is hiding. I liked that she has Mac in her corner and that Mac didn't say anything to Cal about what is going on with her, other than to clue him in that not everything is as it seems with her. But I am still kind of skeptical on her at this point, and I hope that she becomes more likable as the series continues. The passion between these two is explosive, but I am not sure how much of a connection these two will have.
I am curious to see how it all plays out though, and I will try not to be too judgmental on Macy until I am given more. But right now they definitely have the sex part down. These two are super hot together, and I expect that it will just get better as the story continues. Sawyer Bennett is a great writer, and her books are always filled with sexy and steamy scenes. I am looking forward to reading Grind next, as well as going back to read Matt and Mac's story as well.
