We were given a copy of this book for an honest review. First things first this is the story of Ryan and Danny (Daniella) and how two people from two different worlds come together. On a side note Ryan is the team captain for his college hockey team – not sure if you know this but this chick loves hockey!!! So I have a particular soft spot in my heart for hockey players especially since a few of my friends still play hockey. Ryan also comes from a very well to do family (and another side note as a college student he drives my dream car – a Range Rover) and really has never seen any other part of life.
Danny’s life has been anything but simple, easy or privileged, but even with that she accept life and lives it to it’s fullest. With her own family no longer living she has an extended family and Paula and Sarge just make this book better.
So this book has some angst.. so be prepared for some angst. It also has the one female character that you want to take and dip their head in the toilet bowl. This is quick and easy read but it didn’t disappoint. And I loved the ending and I mean LOVED. I can’t say much more than that or I will give away to many details, but I will say this there is a HEA. For me I love HEA and this didn’t fail to deliver. OH I loved so many things about the ending.. I can say this I LOVED where the last scene took place……..
Off Sides is a quick read about college romance, college angst, and falling in love with your opposite. Ryan, a hockey team captain and son of an US Congressman, lives a privileged life. He meets Daniella (Danny), a college student who is trying to make ends meet, by working a couple of jobs and volunteering in a homeless shelter. These two meet while Danny is waiting on his table, along with his snotty friends and ex. Of course there is attraction between the two, but they both deny it at first, because of their social circle and different upbringings.
These two eventually fall in love, but it’s not easy–because of Ryan’s family and friends. What I liked about this book, it’s the opposite of most college romance books, where it’s usually about a bad boy/rocker boy falling for the good girl. Off Sides is the opposite! Danny has the purple hair, pierced, and is the one struggling through life. This book is a bit short and I felt like it was rushed, but it did have a HEA. I would also like to have read an epilogue at the end, but overall it was a decent afternoon read!
*MY BAD! There is an epilogue that is released on her website. My version of Off Sides did not have it. It has now been updated on Amazon. But if don’t have it, you can find it here on her website.
