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?
Well Sawyer Bennett has done it yet again! I am so in love with this series and now Cillian O’Bradaigh has not only made my top 5 book boyfriends list, he is #1!! At first he was an egotistical musician who appeared to be only out for sex….
Renner – “I like my boyfriends a little more professionally balanced.”
Cillian – “Ouch. That hurts, love. But who said anything about me being your boyfriend? I’m just after a long hot shag with you.”
That opinion quickly changed though. It had been five years since Renner and Cillian (pronounced Killian) had seen each other and shared what appeared to have been quite the panty melting kiss. I thought for sure that Renner would jump his bones on sight if she ever saw him again. She was getting over some personal drama (which was hinted at for quite a while, we don’t know the full extent of the situation until later) and was somehow able to resist him, for a little while at least.
I loved that Cillian was persistent and patient. He would hang around and work on his music and just wait for even a moment alone with Renner. Then we see the commanding side of him and OMG was is HOT
“I’m waiting for you to fucking demand it of me. I don’t want you to ask, and I sure as hell don’t want you to beg. I want you to fucking demand that I kiss you.”
I wanted to have a one on one chat with Renner and just tell her to go for it! I mean come on….even reading about this man (and yes even reading in an accent) made me want him…and she had the real thing (yes I know it’s a book LOL) right there in front of her! As she begins to let him in there are of course obstacles that get in their way but Cillian remains sweet and in control at the same time.
“Long, slow, lazy kisses. He’s showing me that he has all the time in the world, and that this is something he wants to savor.”
I highly recommend not just Off Course but the rest of the series as well. They are companion novels so you don’t need to start from the beginning, however it is fun to see where the characters are developed from and to see where they all go. I think I have had all of the “Off” boys on my BBF list at one point or another…I have NOT been disappointed yet!
“In all my life,” he whispers, “I’ll never forget the way you look right now. You devastate my senses.”
***SWOON*** I <3 Cillian!
