    One thought on “Off Sides”

    1. This book would've worked for me if it was 1987.1.5 STARSThis is the story of Danny a Juilliard drop-out, current waitress and Ryan the hockey player who is also the son of a congressman and how they fell in love, beat the odds of class difference and the Republicans' strong stand against lavander hair dye and body piercings. Oh and how Danny cashed in her v-card.She gives her head a small shake in the negative which makes me grin at her. She wants my touch as much as I want to give it. Jesus sh [...]

    2. ★★★★! A quick, feel good read about two College students from opposite sides of the track.Hero: Ryan Burnham, “Ry”/22 years old/student (senior)-University hockey player & team captain-son of a Congressman-trust fund baby/dark brown hair/amber eyesHeroine: Daniella Cross, “Danny”/21 years old/orphan/part-time student-waitress/blond hair with lavender streaks/hazel eyes/virginSawyer Bennet is an excellent story teller!

    3. Ryan and Danny.[image error]Wow!! What a total surprise ! This was an freebie and it sounded pretty good not too long.mething I could read Sunday afternoon and this book turned out to be so very very good. I would have paid for this one if I'd had any idea how good it would be. Both Ryan and Danny are hot he's the captain of their hockey team at Northeastern Tall , sexy hair, muscles, abs fine fine fine. Danny doesnt have much money works at diner, goes to Northeastern part time and volunteers [...]

    4. LOVED IT. Glad I read some friend's reviews and decided to check it out. Started on the 2nd one straight away. Wonder how Miss Emily will get on. Hope she meets a badass Dirty Boy!

    5. Free on 27/02/133 1/2 starsTHE STORY While out with a group of Jock friends and College elite people at an all night diner Ryan meets Danny. She’s not here to eat but she’s working. She puts the Queen Bee Angeline in her place. “Excuse me. But we are in the middle of an important discussion. Do you think it’s inappropriate to just interrupt us with your assumption we are ready for you?” “I’m so sorry… It’s just… I saw all of you sitting here, and well, forgive my ignorance [...]

    6. Loved this book, I wish it was longer The cover is reallly goodI hate it how amazing books always end way to quickly.Ryan, *swoon* LOVED HIMDanny, Loveddd her fierce babe!Ah and shallow people what wonderfully entertaining characters you sluts make.They fell in love an awful lot quickly, but hell love is blind so love can be fast too :P heheheRyan and Danny were just purrr-fect~ ;)"Danny, I'm falling in love with you. I justed you to know that." I smile at him and I can feel my eyes misting. "I' [...]

    7. Sawyer Bennett's Off Sides has a great opening. It sucked me in and made me really excited to read the rest of the story. But, as it turned out, I (yet again) got excited for nothing. The story went from "this will be amazeballs!" to "okay, I can still deal with that" and then to "oh God, WHYYY!?" in a matter of 10 chapters. And why? Because of that damn insta-love. Ryan and Danny know each other for 10 days—TEN DAYS for God’s sake!—and in these ten days words like "deeply in love," "marry [...]

    8. When Ryan and his friends grab a bite to eat after a night of drinking, the witty waitress, Danny catches his eye. From the piercings and the blue tips in hair, she is nothing like the girls he is expected to date. But there is something about her that he can’t resist. He knows by pursuing her that he’s opening her up to attacks from his inner circle that might look down on her, but it’s a battle they are willing to face together.Danny has a thing or two to teach Ryan about the real world [...]

    9. This was a really sweet, touching story about a Boston college senior (Ryan Burnham), son of a prominent U.S. Congressman, captain of his hockey team, and future NHLer. Ryan meets a girl from the 'opposite side of the tracks'--sweet Danny Cross. Due to some truly heartbreaking circumstances, Danny has been forced to give up her scholarship at Julliard, works as a waitress in a diner, goes to college part time, and volunteers her time in a homeless shelter. When Ryan meets her at the diner one la [...]

    10. @54%, I'm done.This one reads like a young girl's Dear Diary entries. The H someone that only said young girl could dream up as the perfect prince.I honestly don't know what to rate it. I listened to the Audible book and the narration is great. The writing is also good and flows at a nice pace. There's really nothing wrong with it other than I didn't like the gooey sweetness of the (unrealistic) story.

    11. 3.5 Stars Hockey Loving, Music Making, Life Affirming Stars * * */*The 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 t [...]

    12. Off Sides is a story of opposites attract. Daniella or Danny, and Ryan are from opposite side of the tracts but they connect in the more important ways: mind and heart. This short and sweet story filled my heart and left me with a big fat grin at the end. Ryan, captain of his college hockey team has aspirations to play professional hockey but feels pressured by his family to take another path. He falls for a girl that his family clearly does not approve of and somehow Daniella gives him the cour [...]

    13. sweet and warm story (view spoiler)[fuck me, i originally wrote WORM instead of WARM, goddammit, it was a lapsus but it fucked up the whole meaning of the sentence *facepalm* i am usually more observant, God knows what went on in my head at the time i was writing this reviewsweet and WORM?! Jesuslol, *shakes her head* (hide spoiler)]I really loved the charactersde my heart melt and made me swoon over Ryanmply lovableI enjoyed it very much, like when you wrap yourself in a soft blanket cosied up [...]

    14. DNF at 17%Because:1. This book is boring as hell.2. The handling of class issues is simplistic and downright bad.3. Everything is spelled out to redundancy, with overly descriptive passages and things are just repeated and repeated and repeated.4. While this book has its fair share of typos, the writing still manages to be extremely obnoxious. I really didn't care for that "oh let's discuss philosophy while we're drunk" thing that took up the first 10% of the novel. Also, throwing in big words i [...]

    15. I enjoyed this one. It was a nice quick filler book. It was very sweet, just wish it had been a bit longer. Definitely recommend it and can't wait to read more from this author.

    16. Oh My this was good!!! Danny Cross, After the heart breaking death of her parents forced her to abandon her music career She struggles to make her own way, working two jobs, attending college part time and volunteering in a homeless shelter.Ryan Burnham, Ryan 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 th [...]

    17. I read this in 2013 but haven't put it on GR til nowThis is the first in a series of books but does not have a cliffhanger , thank goodness! This first story is about Ryan ,a rich college student from a wealthy family who is also a talented hockey player. Whilst out with friends one night he meets Danny (Daniella) who is from a totally different background. Can the two of them get past the obstacles in their way to stand any chance of being together? This is a lovely story with a good ending . I [...]

    19. Read more reviews on my blog | Like me on FacebookOff Sides by Sawyer Bennett was a freebie on and I decided to give the book a read. Off Sides has a very cliché plot. A rich handsome boy with parents who worry more about their family’s image then their actual children meets a girl from the wrong side of the tracks. The two fall in love and don’t give a rats over what other people think of them together, THE END. Ryan has a big trust fund, Capitan of his college’s hockey team, and whose [...]

    20. This could have been so good. "Could have been" are the important words. The situation presented is not new, but I liked these characters.Ryan is a jock from a rich, controlling family, but he is not like them. He doesn't think he's too good for anyone. He doesn't throw his money and status around in anyone's face. He's just interested in playing hockey and being happy--something his family do not allow unless it follows their agenda.Danny is a sweet girl who has watched her entire life crumble [...]

    21. 5 Heart-Warming Stars!hellolittleredreadinghoodI seriously loved this story. I think Sawyer Bennett is one of the best authors ever. Yeah, you got it right: she's also one of my favorites. I always smile ear to ear when I' reading her stories. This time wasn't different. You just can't stop smiling when you read such an epic lovestory. I need a Ryan Burnham. He made my heart melt immediately. And Danny was like any other Bennett heroines: sweet and smart and very loveable.Ryan and Danny were so [...]

    22. A short whirlwind romance between a trust fund hockey player, whose father is a Congressman, and a young waitress and violinist from the wrong side of the tracks. Of course, you've got to expect some angst, heartbreak, and interference along the way before our young college students find their much-too-rushed happily ever after.Expect some editing problems but nothing major. Story flows quickly and evenly. Fun way to spend a couple of hours.

    23. Such a sweet book, seriously the romantic in me was in absolute heaven. I love it when the hero knows he's in love and will do anything for the woman he loves. It really was a pleasure reading this book and the only complaint I have is that it was too short and I didn't want it to end! I can't wait for the next book!

    24. 4.5* Danny and Ryan make an awesome couple! I loved this story. They both have a lot of baggage, very different, but difficult all the same. I loved their strength, together, and individually. I'm a sucker for a love conquers all story and this one delivers. Thank you Sawyer for the free epilogue on your website- it's perfect! A glimpse into the near future is just the icing on the cake :)

    25. This was a sweet, albeit, uncomplicated story. I loved the characters and their honesty with one another. I found Ms. Bennett straightforward style of storytelling refreshing and palate-cleansing from some of the overcomplicated "New Adult" books out there. Read in a few hours, this one will leave you smiling.

    26. Gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because it started off SO good. That's what hurts the most. Then it just became a train wreck in my opinion. Loved the plot of it at first and the beginning had me so pumped. I'm really bummed. It just got waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too corny for me.

    27. DNF @ 56%I can't force myself through another second of this. I really thought I would be able to power through it so I could include it in my challenge, but I can't. This may be the worst book I have ever (almost) read.I have pages of notes and no desire to actually review this so I am literally just going to type up my notes and silly quotes that I highlighted. 1. This book is the definition of insta-love. They go on one date and they're both obsessed with each other, but apparently that one d [...]
