 The sparks of dislike burn hot, but the sparks of mutual attraction burn even hotter. Ever Montgomery suffered the ultimate betrayal by the one man who she should have been able to count on for anything. It has left her hurt, jaded and incapable of forming relationships, but it also means that she can spot a liar a mile away. These traits are earning her a reputation as a reporter with a keen nose for a good story and a complete understanding of the extreme power of the written word. Lincoln Caldwell, is the hot goalie for the New York Rangers. At twenty-four and a rising star, he works hard and he plays even harder. He’s gorgeous and carefree—the ultimate charmer. Ladies fall at his feet and the single life has never been lived the way Linc Caldwell does it. When Ever publishes an article about Linc containing information that she received off the record, she finds herself on the receiving end of the athelete’s fury. Rather than basking in the glory of exposing Linc as a shameless user of women, she finds herself at his mercy when he demands and receives retribution. Required by her editor to trail Linc for six weeks, Ever is forced to look at the real Linc Caldwell. And she just might find that she has misjudged him.

Book one: Off Sides: Ryan and Danny's StoryGoodreads/Amazon/Kim's review
Book two: Off Limits: Emily and Nix's story: Goodreads/Amazon/Kim's review



This is the 3rd installment in Sawyer Bennett's OFF series and is about Nix's brother Linc who we met in Off Limits. 

"Of course, you're tempting. But I think you're a huge flirt and you think you can flash those dimples and women will just fall at your feet."


"Now that's just not true...I can also flash my washboard abs or my incredibly large bank account. I'm multi-dimensional."

Linc is a hot , flirty, hockey star. Ever is a friend of Nix's girlfriend Emily so she introduces them so Ever can do a nice human interest story on Linc. Things seem to be going well, until a misunderstanding ignites all of Ever's trust issues and she ends up skewering him in her article. Her repercussions for this end up tying her to him for an extended period of time. 

Linc is hot...no doubt...totally sexy, charismatic, and has women fawning all over him.. But he is also charming, sweet, good natured, loyal and a humanitarian.  He loves his family and his friends and is more than what he seems. He is happy with his life and is not really looking for anything more.


There is no telling why I have this sudden and deep interest with Ever. My feelings toward her have gone from an instant attraction, to anger, to vengeance, to amusement, to attraction, and now fascination. 


Ever is a hot mess. She has serious trust issues stemming from her past. They are so ingrained in her that she does not want to let anyone in. She is quick to judge and strike back if hurt. She keeps her pain bottled up tight and avoids emotional attachments. She is fearful, unsure, but not stupid. She begins to see that she her own insecurities might have caused her to treat Linc unfairly. 

They are forced together in close quarters and have to start to peel back the layers and really get to know one another. They have a good rapport and common interests. There is an atttraction and feelings that they both try to fight for different reasons. Linc is worried and does not trust her motives. She is worried and does not trust any man. And frankly Linc scares the crap out of her because for the first time in a long time she is actually feeling something. There is a lot of back and forth, miscommunication, and missed opportunities. 

It is dripping with sexual tension. and once they do connect, it is hot and combustible. It is just hot, steamy, sex, right? 

"Everything of an intimate nature between us is off the record. I fact, I promise you my article will not say a word about our love life."

Together they have potential for more, but they are held back by Ever's deep fears and other life changing circumstances. 

Will she ever be able to trust again and move forward together or will they part ways and move on alone?

This book had humor, sweetness, and emotion. It was a true journey of self discovery for Ever. I adored Linc. He was patient and supportive of her for the most part and made some changes himself. But even he has his limits.  Ever drove me a bit crazy with how she treated him even though she had her reasons for being scared. I wanted to smack her upside the head with my kindle saying "Get it together you stupid girl!" It was a  romantic, bittersweet, and painful journey for them both.


I got all swoony and teary at some points. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I loved seeing more of Emily, Nix, and his Dad, and also meeting their cousin Renner who has potential for her own story. Sawyer Bennett writes in an easy flowing style that pulls you in, makes you feel for her characters, and makes you want to be part of their group. 

Thanks to Sawyer Bennett for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
