Off Sides (Off Series, #1)Blurb:

“I’m not sure what possessed me to do it. Maybe it was the impossible expectations I faced, maybe it was my own self-loathing. But I just knew I needed something different to happen. I needed someone… something… to derail me from my current path. Otherwise, I would become lost… a hollowed out shell of a man. So I did it. I approached her, then I pursued her, then I made her mine. And my life was saved…”

Ryan Burnham is the privileged son of a U.S. Congressman and captain of his university’s hockey team. While he is on the verge of fulfilling his dreams to play in the NHL, his parents want him on a different course. One he is expected to accept for the sake of his family’s public image.

Forced her to abandon her music career after the heart breaking death of her parents, Danny Cross exists on the opposite side of the tracks from Ryan. She is struggling to make her own way, working two jobs, attending college part time and volunteering in a homeless shelter. She is on a mission to build her own success.

With a chance meeting, their vastly different worlds collide, causing each to evaluate whether they are truly on the correct path to self-fulfillment and happiness. Can their relationship survive? Particularly when others are against them every step of the way. A lot can happen in just ten short days.

So this book I read after it was recommended by some followers on our Facebook page! I wasn’t disappointed! I enjoyed this story and loved the characters.  I adored Danny couldn’t wait to know her, she is full of life with a past that could of left her broken.  No Danny is a calm, tough, and a smart young lady who gives back and works hard to accomplish her goals. Ryan a sweet, hard working guy was raised with a silver spoon in his mouth but leaves his privileged background at the door. He is full life and his character is so likable.  A story about young love that has bridges to cross but a chemistry and attraction that has you glued to the pages.  I can’t wait to have a chance to continue with this series.
