Book Description

“I'm not sure what possessed me to do it. Maybe it was the impossible expectations I faced, maybe it was my own self-loathing. But I just knew I needed something different to happen. I needed derail me from my current path. Otherwise, I would become lost...a hollowed out shell of a man. So I did it. I approached her, then I pursued her, then I made her mine. And my life was saved...”

Ryan Burnham is the privileged son of a U.S. Congressman and captain of his university’s hockey team. While he is on the verge of fulfilling his dreams to play in the NHL, his parents want him on a different course. One he is expected to accept for the sake of his family’s public image.

Forced to abandon her music career after the heart breaking death of her parents, Danny Cross exists on the opposite side of the tracks from Ryan. She is struggling to make her own way, working two jobs, attending college part time and volunteering in a homeless shelter. She is on a mission to build her own success.

With a chance meeting, their vastly different worlds collide, causing each to evaluate whether they are truly on the correct path to self-fulfillment and happiness. Can their relationship survive? Particularly when others are against them every step of the way. A lot can happen in just ten short days...

Hero: Ryan Burnham, "Ry"/22 years old/student (senior)-University hockey player & team captain-son of a Congressman-trust fund baby/dark brown hair/amber eyes
Heroine: Daniella Cross, "Danny"/21 years old/orphan/part-time student-waitress/blond hair/hazel eyes/virgin

Sawyer Bennet is an excellent story teller! This story has a very pleasant flow, alternating between Ryan's and Danny's POV. I particularly enjoyed Ryan's.

That said I feel I need to clarify; I had read in the book description:
"So I did it. I approached her, then I pursued her, then I made her mine. And my life was saved..."
Based on that description I had thought it be one of those intense roller-coaster rides with a very dominant hero. But it is not. It is more a feel good read, borderline YA, but with sex scenes.

Ryan is a wonderful hero; he is so lovable, sweet and kind and very sexy in a cute kind of way. Danny is also a great heroine. She has had many tragedies in her life and before meeting Ryan she was barely getting by, recovering from the loss of both her parents and trying to deal with huge medical debts. Ryan and Danny pretty much fall for each other at first sight. But they have much to overcome; the difference in family status, peer pressure, a vindictive ex-girlfriend, an envious adversary and a spiteful mother....

I might have wished the story was longer and spanned a longer period of time. It's a quick read and I enjoyed it - very little anxiety, a feel-good read.

"..."It was fun tonight. But you know what would be even more fun?" "What's that?" she asks. "Making out with you in my car when we get back to your place. You know, to see how foggy we can get the glass?" "That does sounds like fun. Count me in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Need more of Ryan and Danny! February 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really needed this book! I'm so glad I discovered it and added it to my collection. Lately, I've been reading extremely angsty books and needed a break from the tumultuous emotions. Danny, the heroine of this story was so refreshing! She is smart, funny, compassionate and kind. I can't tell you how many times I've read books where the heroine of the story is sniveling and weak. I wish there were more women like her in the books I've read. Despite all the odds against her I just knew that she would succeed in life. Ryan, the hero of this story was great too. The only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars is because I wanted more of Ryan and Danny!

5.0 out of 5 stars I would highly recommend this book to everyone! March 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Before I started reading this book, I have to admit I was a little intimidated......I know absolutely NOTHING about hockey. So I was worried I wouldn't be able to follow along. After finishing Off Sides, I have come to the conclusion.....I have found my new sport to watch and learn about, especially if they have hotties like Ryan Burnham (and his friends who sound just as equally hot) on the team!

I loved Ryan's personality, hell when he was introduced he was playing Angry Birds, who hasn't played that! He was the guy who girls fantasized about; he knew he was hot, knew he was a great hockey player, and he had money. But none of that mattered to him when he saw Danny, a waitress at the diner close to college. She was not his typical girl to say the least, but he found himself with this strong attraction and desire to Danny. He knew she was not the girl his family expected him (ahem....forced) him to date as she had facial piercings, lavender colored ends on her dark blonde hair, and a waitress. His family wanted him with some like that bitch Angeline. (Even I wanted to jump in my kindle and kick this girl's ass!) But Ryan didn't care!

Danny had me laughing my ass off when she put Angeline in her place, the first night she met Ryan. She didn't take crap from no one; she didn't have time to worry about that. She was going to school, working at the diner, volunteering at a shelter, and trying to grieve both her parents' death.

After promising to go on a first date with Ryan, Danny is determined to "prove" to Ryan that they don't belong together because of their different social circles. But after riding the bus, volunteering at the shelter, etc., Ryan isn't less attracted to fact he is more attracted to her and her heart and he enjoyed it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definite read- a turn pager must! February 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This new book by Sawyer Bennett is a must read. It was an easy story to follow and I couldn't put down my Kindle because I wanted to know what happened between the two main characters. It was chock full of references to current culture which made it fun to read as well.

I was provided this ARC in exchange for an honest review and I honestly give it 5 stars. Sawyer Bennett is a talented writer and a breath of fresh air. Check out her other stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute! February 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good story cute love but little to short for my liking. I thought Danni and Ryan were adorable tho and I also believe you don't always have to know someone a long time to fall in love. I would like to see a novella or something about their future together. The writing flowed nicely and kept moving along at a good pace maybe a little fast in some parts but still a very enjoyable story. Looking forward to more by this author.
