REVIEW – THE PECKER BRIEFS (Legal Affairs #7) by Sawyer Bennett


I never thought a pecker would get me in so much trouble.

I mean, sure… if you’re talking about a certain anatomical feature of mine that the ladies just love. Given my bachelor status and appreciation for all things curvy and feminine, I could absolutely see that. But a different pecker is making my life much harder than it needs to be.

My name is Ford Daniels, partner at the law firm of Knight & Payne, and my latest case has me wading through the finer points of peckers—woodpeckers that is. Specifically, the red-cockaded woodpecker. I swear, I can’t make this stuff up but that’s what the sexy-as-hell blonde chained to a tree told me this morning.

Her name is Viveka Jones and she is so much more than a pretty face. She’s got wit, charm, and razor-sharp smarts. Turns out my client is looking to bulldoze the red-cockaded woodpecker’s natural habitat in favor of a multimillion-dollar subdivision and the sexy attorney with legs for days (and days), just happens to be counsel for an animal rights group looking to put a halt to construction.

My client’s pissed, but all I can think about is getting Viveka across the table from me. And then on the table underneath me. Perhaps up against the wall. And then—

Well, let’s just say when it’s all said and done, I’m hoping the red-cockaded woodpecker isn’t the only pecker that gets some attention from Miss Viveka Jones.

I have another Sawyer Bennett series to add to my “Favorites” shelf! I don’t know why I waited so long to read her ”Legal Affairs” series but I will be making some time to get to these books!! ”THE PECKER BRIEFS” was a well-paced sweet & super steamy read!! I loved the Hero, the Heroine, and just the whole feel of this story.

Ford Daniels is a successful lawyer working for one of the elite law firms in Raleigh, N.C. He’s a real ladies man and loves his carefree life as a bachelor. No woman has been able to hold his attention longer than a few weeks, until he meets the beautiful and headstrong opposing attorney of his upcoming case, Viveka Jones.



Viveka is an animal rights attorney. Recently divorced, she lives in a tiny modest home, making enough just to get by. She has a huge heart and she’ll take on cases even when she knows that her clients can’t afford to pay her because protecting the rights of animals is her passion. One of Ford’s clients calls him and orders him to get down to his construction site to handle a situation for him. When he arrives what he thought was going to be an annoying start to his day, turns out to be the highlight actually when he sees a beautiful woman who obviously chained herself to a tree. He’s even amused when Viveka hands over a court-ordered injunction against any work being done on the site in order to protect the red-cockaded woodpecker which is on the endangered species list, and happens to have built a nest in that tree along with all the surrounding trees in the area.

Ford and Viveka have crazy chemistry. It only takes 24 hours for them to wind up tangled between the sheets and from then on, they can barely stay away from each other for more than a day. Their romance was HOT and oh so sweet! This wasn’t a particularly angsty read but we do get some drama when it becomes clear that someone will do just about anything to silence Viveka. Ford wants to take matters into his own hands and protect Viv but she’s just as adamant about protecting his career and stubbornly makes him promise to not take any action.



Ford and Viveka try to keep their romance under the radar as it could cause big problems for them since they’re currently opposing attorneys on a court case. Will they be successful in keeping their relationship a secret and can they get through the case unscathed when it’s apparent that someone has it out for Viveka?

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 4.5
Angst: 3
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
