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.

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!

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 her....in fact he is more attracted to her and her heart and he enjoyed it!

I am sorry but I HATED this book. It was so formulaic and boring it was laughable. Rich boy meets nice poor virgin girl. Blah, blah, blah. It was so uncreative it was painful. I really wanted to like it but I just couldn't.

the editing is horrendous. Spelling, punctuation, grammar, it's all there. And not just a small amount either. It's on every page. What should have been a 4 star review is only 2 because of this. Very distracting.

Isn't this such a cliche? I mean, a virgin, part-time student goody two shoes girl meets/falls in love with a popluar hockey player who is rich and son of a well-known person? Really? It is a feel good type of novel but this is like the same old story line of the novels I've read for the past decade.

I really liked the first few chapters! I was definitely intrigued by Ryan and Danny. She "looks" like a bad girl from the wrong side of the tracks, and Ryan is a spoiled rich kid slightly bored with the jerks he hangs around. She's his waitress... a spark is ignited and you want to watch where it burns.

But then all things came to a screaming halt in chapter 4. It stops becoming a story where I see what's going on and quickly becomes a story where I'm being told what's going on. It was like getting constant updates and not captivating at all. It would sound like: "Now we're at work and he's looking and me and I'm smiling." "Now we're doing this! Oh look! Now we're here and I feel this way!"

It just lost it's finesse. I felt like I was being force fed emotions.

There was some awkwardness to it as well. And one part that had me laughing when I don't think that was it's intent... she says: "With my other hand, I stroke the back of his [hand], running my fingers over his light crisp hairs." Well... that's descriptive and not force-feeding me. So that's nice. But I can't say I've ever read that finger hair is sexy. Just more so made me laugh at it's weirdness.

And the part where he was a total D-bag and doesn't call her but then shows up at her place days later and she forgives him hands down with nothing to say to that? I feel as though that made her very weak. Or stupid.

The cliches were also a bit much. For instance... while Danny may look like a whore apparently, it magically turns out that she's a virgin! But not for long! Because after 1 date, Ryan being a total d-bag, and then 1 day together- she knows it's time to lose that V-card!
