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.
After reading the first two Off Series book, I was excited to get a third. Especially about Nix’s (who I loved in Off Limits) hot hockey player brother, Linc. Lincoln Caldwell is the goalie for the New York Rangers and is considered one of the hottest athletes, but also as a player on and off the ice! Ever Montgomery, apprising journalist and friends with Emily, who happens to be dating Nix, gets Ever an personal interview with Linc.
Ever is jaded with men since finding out her ex-fiance is a cheater and having her father walk out on her. So jumping to conclusions and not get facts right, Ever ends up writing a PR nightmare article about Linc. And to get even, Linc has Ever live with him for six weeks, so she can get to know the real Linc and re-write the article. And what happens when you stuck with a hot hockey player (who really is a good guy!) for 24/7 for six weeks? Sparks happen, along with drama! Off the Record is a must read!
White Chick, Jenn’s Review of Off the Record
Rating: 4 stars out of 5
This is the story of Lincoln “Linc” Caldwell, goalie for the New York Rangers and Ever Montgomery, journalist with a slight prejudice against men she believes to be “players”. First, I loved Linc when we met him in Nix’s book (Off Limits) and I was so excited to read his book. While on the outside Linc seems like your typical professional athlete – shallow, random hook-ups, etc, but that is not our Linc. He is actually really complex and not at all shallow, so when Ever writes an article about him that paints him like that things get interesting.
Ever oh Ever while she is journalist she is a little closed minded when it comes to Linc due to her past experiences. Now Linc can handle her article in one of two ways (I’m not going to give to much away) and I’m really surprised how he handles it. There were times in this book when I wanted to shake Ever and tell her to wake up. She does eventually, don’t fear there is a HEA. Oh these two… This book has all the things I really liked, humor, just enough angst, a good romance and hot hockey player!! Can’t wait for the next book..
Sawyer Bennett is the pen name for a snarky southern woman and reformed trial lawyer who decided to finally start putting on paper all of the stories that were floating in her head. She is married to a mobster (well, a market researcher) and they have two big, furry dogs who hog the bed. Sawyer would like to report she doesn’t have many weakness but can be bribed with a nominal amount of milk chocolate.
