Uncivilized is one of my favorite Sawyer Bennett books (and it’s seriously the HOTTEST one of hers yet), so I was incredibly happy when I found out that there would be a sequel novella! I absolutely LOVED Moira and Zach in Uncivilized, so Love: Uncivilized was a total treat for me. I adored reading about them again, this time as a married couple with children.
It’s been almost eight years of marriage for Zach and Moira, and with two kids and Zach’s blooming career, this couple isn’t spending as much time together as much as they wish they could. Zach is working crazy hours to prove his worth to his uncle, and Moira is left home with the kids, but she’s itching to go back to work. She also misses Zach like crazy, because even when he’s there, he’s not really there – but they still love each other something fierce, and she has no doubt that they’ll get through this bump in their marriage.
That is the Zach I miss the most on those nights where he’s too tired to do anything past snuggling into me tight. My primitive, controlling, domineering man that focuses all of these egocentric traits on giving me pleasure, protecting his family, and making us happy.
The issues that Zach and Moira and their marriage face just felt so very REAL. Sawyer Bennett did an incredible job with making this story so very relatable. Zach and Moira are not a perfect couple, because no couple ever is, but the love they have for each other, that connection that they had from the very moment they met, is still there. I loved getting this glimpse into Zach and Moira’s married life, experiencing their struggles alongside them, seeing them work their way through problems together.
We got lost for a bit, but when it boiled right down to it… Moira and I were created and exist solely for the benefit of each other.
When you finish a book, sometimes you just want to read MORE about your favorite characters, you know? Love: Uncivilized is exactly that ‘more’ that I wanted from Moira and Zach. If you loved Uncivilized, you don’t want to miss this follow-up novella!
