Blog Tour Love Uncivilized by Sawyer Bennett

Love: Uncivilized
by Sawyer Bennett
Genre: Contemporary Romance

How did things ever get to be so difficult?

Nearly eight years of marriage. 
Two kids. 
Hectic careers and major life choices. 

Throw in sexual frustration, doubts, insecurities and one wild man not completely tamed by society, and you have a Christmas that’s bound to get out of control. Zacharias Easton will show you just how uncivilized love can be.

** Love: Uncivilized is a follow up novella to the book, Uncivilized. While it can be read as a stand alone, it is best appreciated after having read Uncivilized first. 

25 Facts about Sawyer Bennett

  1. I am a lawyer by trade, but stopped practicing to write full-time in 2014. I still maintain an active law license.
  2. Some of the scenarios in the Legal Affairs Series are loosely based on real-life court cases. Though sadly, none of the naughty office shenanigans are real.
  3. “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails was on repeat while writing Off Limits. That was my theme song for the book.
  4. In Off the Record, Linc and Ever go to assist with clean-up efforts following a tornado in Oklahoma. This was taken from my personal experience of assisting with the clean-up efforts in Joplin, MO following an EF5 tornado on May 22, 2011.
  5. My favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird, and my dogs are named after the main characters, Atticus and Scout.
  6. My dad owned a bar when I was growing up, so I spent a lot of time there slinging beer. It was part of my inspiration for the Last Call Series.
  7. Jackson Hole, WY is one of my favorite places ever, and if I had it my way, I’d retire there.
  8. I swam with stingrays just after Steve Irwin was tragically killed by one.
  9. There is no room in my life for spiders. None. Kill them all dead. Ryker’s fear of spiders came from my own fears.
  10. I am teaching my almost 2-year-old daughter to love and appreciate all things Harry Potter.
  11. But that doesn’t mean I don’t give in and let her watch Barney to keep her entertained. I love that big, purple dinosaur more than I ever imagined possible.
  12. I wrote my first new adult book, Off Sides, as a dare from my husband.
  13. I make a mean Bloody Mary.
  14. I played volleyball in college.
  15. I am a born and raised North Carolinian.
  16. I love all things Pittsburgh: Steelers, Penguins, Primanti Brothers, etc.
  17. I am a huge Ohio State fan and used to have a dog named Buckeye. O-H…
  18. While I love all the men in the Cold Fury Series, Ryker is my favorite. Something about his character really spoke to me, and I found him to be very swoony when all was said and done.
  19. Some of the content in Wicked Fall (and the upcoming Wicked Lust) was far outside of my realm of knowledge, and has led to some very questionable (and informative) Google searches.
  20. I had the title for Uncivilized before I ever knew what the book would be about. I just loved that title and knew I needed to use it, and then were born Zacharias and Moira.
  21. I once planned and booked a two-week car/ train trip through the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria and Hungary for my husband’s 40th birthday party using nothing but Google Maps.
  22. Next to spiders, I’m terrified of sharks. I refuse to get in the ocean.
  23. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my all time favorite show. I have all 7 seasons on DVD and I’m actually embarrassed to tell you how many times I’ve watched all 7 seasons.
  24. I just started learning the sport of Mixed Martial Arts and it’s scary how much I enjoy punching and hitting things.
  25. I have a tropical Goby fish I named Fred. He intimidates me. He fluffs up the sand into a pile, sits on top of it and glares at me.

Interview with Zacharias Easton

What do you love most about Moira?
I love everything about Moira - her fiery hair, her beautiful eyes that see into my soul, her gorgeous body that fits perfectly against mine. But what I love the most about Moira, above all of her both physical and characteristic attributes, is her love for me. That might sound selfish, but it's true. The way she loves me and had the strength to fight for me, and for us. The way she loves me enough to have pledged her whole life to me, and stands beside me through all things in life. The way she loves me by giving me her body and bearing me two beautiful children. The way she loves me by giving me her whole mind and every inch of her loving soul. There just aren't enough words to fully describe her and the way she loves me. It's humbling.

How did you feel the first time Moira told you she was pregnant?
You already know I'm an uncivilized man, and Moira telling me she was pregnant brought that out in me. Just knowing that I had planted the seed of life within her, that together we had created something everlasting and beautiful, my god. Of course I had to have her, right then and there. Which just happened to be against the front door, since she was so excited she sprung it on me the minute I walked in. 

Have you ever second guessed your decision to come back to civilization?
Never. Once I made the decision to give myself to Moira fully and completely, I never once regretted that decision. She is my life, my heart, my soul, and everything in between. I do miss Paraila, but Father Gaul provides updates as often as he can. I know I am where I am meant to be.

Do you still enjoy a good Google session?
*laughs* I use Google for different things these days, like trying to determine how to cure diaper rash and how to assemble kids toys that come with a million tiny parts. I will never tire of learning new things, and Google has never let me down. Moira wholeheartedly agrees that Google is an excellent source of information. *winks*

Where do you see you and Moira 30 years down the road?
I see us surrounded by our kids and grandkids. I'd love to have a couple more kids, though I'm not sure Moira would be on board with that just yet. But even if we stop with two, my heart is happy and full. Our kids are amazing, and I can't wait to watch them grow up and become extraordinary adults. I look forward to being a grandfather, and watching Moira get more beautiful with age. Because she does. I thought she was the most beautiful creature the first time I laid eyes on her, even if I hated what she stood for. But, my god. She gets more beautiful every single day I open my eyes and see her. That's where I see us - surrounded by family and filled with love, because isn't that what it's all about?
