Summary

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?

Note from Sawyer Bennett: This book is part of the Off Series but it can be heard as a standalone book. Nothing in the prior or subsequent books will diminish your understanding of this novel. This is a New Adult, Contemporary Romance.

Not my favourite book in the series, however it was still enjoyable and of course beautifully written. I had trouble connecting with Renner and Cillian and I found I wasn't as invested in their story. I got a little wound up with how Cillian handled Maeve.
All that said the chemistry when they got together was palpable and I loved Cillian's take charge attitude and the fact that unless it was in the bedroom, Renner didn't bend to his demands. Looking forward to reading Flynn's story.

That first trip to Ireland would map her life. . .

Renner Caldwell loved her graduation gift of a trip to Ireland and family. She enjoyed it even more when she meets Cillian O’Bradaigh. The sexy, young, Irish rocker was every young girls dream. He kissed her like there was nothing else in the world. Then he just as easily walked away from her and picked up with another. This turns Renner in to a more logically thinking young woman. Years later she returns to Ireland and the path of Cillian.

There was depth to Cillian. He was a man that had a whole story behind him and maybe guiding him. The direction of this guidance may turn out to be hazardous to his future. This was well written and gave some intriguing characters both secondary and main.

Narrator Charlotte and Matthew brings the whole cast to life. Giving them depth and perception. The accent of the Irish land was just beautiful. The cadence and pitch well worth the listen. The audio was smooth and clear.

When You See Crazy Coming, Cross the Damn Street

This was an enticing romance that kept me listening and interested to the end. Who knew that a tattooed up, facial pierced Irish rock star could be so sexy, and dense. Cillian seemed to know everything about what Renner wanted and was completely clueless about his bandmate/former girlfriend. But he was awfully cute anyway. I love that even with everything Renner had to be insecure about, she didn't let that make her a jealous shrew. Love the chemistry between Cillian and Renner. The story fell in line with the others in the series.

The narration was good and the Irish accents, especially by Matthew Holland were easy to listen to and understand. Charlotte does a good job with the female voices and a passable Irish accent. I would listen to them narrate other books.

Definitely worth the credit. This is the the third book that I've read in the series and I am still looking forward to completing the series. Good job Sawyer Bennett.

Best in the series!

By far my favorite book in the series. I don’t typically enjoy accents when listening, because honestly they can be pretty bad, but the performance was excellent!

OH. EM. GEE.

For starters, Cillian is an idiot. I wanted to smack him several times throughout this book. This is such a good story. The plot, the originality, the character building. Amazing. This was a little hard for me to read because it wasn't an easy road for Renner and Cillian, but that's what made this so good!

And the narrators are amazing. Each character is distinct and easily identifiable through their voice-acting. The emotions invoked as each word is spoken is breathtaking and sometimes heart-wrenching.

Of course I enjoyed OFF COURSE.

This is the fourth novel in Sawyer Bennett’s OFF Series. And wow, this story is HOT! The chemistry between the heroine Renner (22) and the hero Cillian (24) is instant and quite well written. She resists him at first for good reasons and so the opportunity is there for them to get to know each other while he is busy trying to crumble her defences against him. Once she gives in to her attraction toward him, the relationship is hot, his sexy lead is erotic, and I really enjoyed their road to love-discovery.

Sawyer Bennett’s writing in this OFF Series really appeals to me because I feel there is a good balance between romantic build-up and sex, rather than being sex-heavy.

Narrators Charlotte North and Matthew Holland narrate the whole OFF Series. I feel they have been perfectly cast. I believe the narrators are American and “put on” an Irish accent for OFF COURSE and book 6, OFF SEASON. I enjoyed their Irish accent and felt it was well done.

Angst-filled romance

Pretty basic romance. Lots of talking and soap opera melodrama.

The male narrator's male voice is super-sexy, but his female voice is off - it takes you out of the story.

A few hot sexy times. Mostly vanilla.

Another great addition to this series.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It was done really well and the story is really great.

Have you listened to any of Charlotee North and Matthew Holland ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. They do a really good job as far as narrators go. And I'm picky.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Wanted to? I did listen to it in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

Another smash hit for the off sides series.

Great listen

I really enjoyed this book. A few of the annunciations made my skin crawl, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed it. I cried, I got angry, and I laughed. This book sucks you in and a few times I found myself responding the same thing as the characters at a climactic point. It's easy to get pulled into Sawyer's books. I felt like I needed to kick someone's rear on numerous occasions, and high five on others... definitely worth the listen.
