Off The Record by Sawyer Bennett

Sensual couple

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.

~Laura’s 5 Star Thoughts~

                 After being crushed by her Dad’s inability to cope with a family crisis, Ever Montgomery builds walls up around her heart, guarding against more hurt and betrayal.  When she decides to give love a chance years later, she is crushed again.  Finding her fiance in bed with her friend, builds those walls right back up again, stronger than before, vowing to never be hurt again.

 Linc Caldwell is the goalie for the New York Rangers, with an amazing career ahead of him. He plays hard on and off the ice.  When Ever’s friend Emily gets her an interview with the gorgeous goalie, she is thrown for a loop.  She finds herself dreaming of what it would be like to be with him.  When Linc asks Ever out, she politely turns him down, only to find him in a compromising position a few hours later.  She lets all her frustration with men out in her write up about Linc in The Post.  When Linc gets the chance to read what she has written about him, he sets about to ruin her.  She now has to live with him for the next six weeks, to see what he really is like and then write a new article about him for The Post.  What neither one of them figured on, was their attraction to one another being so great.  Piece by piece, Linc tears down her walls.  He sets out to prove to her that he is a good, honest man and that he wants her in his life.

 Ever never expected to be caught up in another man again.  And she truly has to eat her words.  Linc is everything a woman would want and more.  Strong, honest, smart, sweet and sexy as hell.  The chemistry between them is explosive!  Off the Record is a story about learning to forgive and let love back into your life.  Filled with a roller coaster ride of emotions, Sawyer Bennett does an amazing job telling Ever and Linc’s story.  With plenty of  sexy scenes….she got my blood boiling.  I give Off the Record 5 stars.  I loved every page of it!  Highly recommend it and the previous two books in the series.  I look forward to reading more from her.
