Goodreads –

Amazon –

Barnes and Noble -


Renner Caldwell has her life perfectly mapped out. She has the ideal relationship, the perfect job and all is right in her world. When a shameful turn of events happens, she boards the first plane bound for Ireland to lick her wounds and get her head back on straight.

Cillian O’Braidagh is the sexy, front man to the Irish rock band, Over The Edge. His rising fame and sultry voice make him every woman’s fantasy come true. Not to mention his single-minded determination. To put it simply: what Cillian wants, Cillian always gets. And he wants Renner, because there’s just something about the flame-haired beauty he has to possess.

If their relationship was just about sex and rock n’ roll, it would be easy for them to get lost in their desires. Only their relationship is anything but a hook-up. Will lies, deceit and hidden tragedy get in the way, making the path to true love uncertain? Or will the girl whose been knocked Off Course, find her footing with the man who is teaching her it’s okay to lose control?

Clare's Review:
Oh how I love the whole Off Series by Sawyer Bennett!!! I love how it all intertwines just enough to keep in touch with all the characters and relations, but not so much where you feel you have to read or reread the whole series each time a new one comes out. I'm such a sucker for every story and I think this was my favorite so far.
It's mostly set in Dublin, starting when Renner and Cillian first meet five years prior. He's from Ireland, she's from the states. Then it jumps ahead to Renner back in Dublin, escaping a fairly disastrous relationship and career debacle. Her path crosses Cillian's again and because of their family ties, there is no avoiding the other...not that either of them truly want to. As their relationship grows into something real, each of their pasts threaten to derail them, especially Cillian's. They have to decide if they're ready to let go of their fear and guilt to move forward.
Cillian has some breath stealing moments and lines in this. If I wore panties, they would have incinerated.  And I highlighted some parts that I fully intend on working into my every day dialogue. Sometimes I go back and read them again just to lust after Cillian some more.  Is that weird?? And it wasn't just HIM; it was how he felt about Renner. Very passionate and demanding and...sigh. Hot. This whole book I may have to go reread just for kicks. 4.9 stars til I get more. I'm a greedy bitch.
