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.
Off The Record by Sawyer Bennett
This book is a well written & thought out contemporary romance with dynamic characters and attention grabbing scenes. This was my first introduction to Author Sawyer Bennett’s writing and what I loved the most about her writing style was the way she developed conversations between the main characters Linc & Ever. Some of them are snarky, flirtatious, angry, and sympathetic. The author has a keen sense of just how to put into words exactly what she is thinking and have it make complete sense to the reader on paper. There is some kind of raw emotion in almost every page of this book, that as a reader, you can connect with on some level.
Ever Montgomery has been wronged and hurt by the men she loves all of her life. She has put emotional concrete walls in place to protect herself from any more heartbreak and pain. Lincoln Caldwell is a hotshot NY Rangers goalie that knows his way around the ladies. He is young, single and ready to play on and off the ice.
When Ever is given the opportunity to write an article for The Post on just what makes Lincoln Caldwell tick she jumps at the chance. During the interview Ever is charmed by Linc’s personality and his extremely good looks. Afterward, her past relationship resentment and insecurities surface that prevent her from seeing him as nothing other than a womanizer. In a fit of anger and jealousy Ever writes a less than flattering article about Linc for the whole world to see – his family, his fans, his friends – EVERYONE!! After reading the scathing article he wants nothing less than to make her pay for the lies she has spread about him. He wants her to see and get to know the real Lincoln Caldwell up close and very personal. The only way to do this is to have her by his side every minute of every day for 6 weeks.
What starts out as a “punishment” for Ever quickly develops into something more but will her past relationships continue to haunt her and sabotage her chances of getting to know the man she hopes that Lincoln Caldwell is?
This is a must read for anyone who loves romance with a little bit of bite and a whole lot of incredible storytelling! 18+
