When Liz Dougherty’s first reporting assignment for her North Carolina college newspaper finds her covering a state senator’s impromptu press conference, she has no idea how drastically her life is about to change.

Liz’s hardball question catches Brady off guard and shows her editor, Hayden Lane, that she’s headed places as journalist. But to Liz’s surprise, she’s also headed for a secret, high-stakes romance with Brady Maxwell.

Publisher's Summary

It all started with a question.…

When Liz Dougherty’s first reporting assignment for her North Carolina college newspaper finds her covering a state senator’s impromptu press conference, she has no idea how drastically her life is about to change. Senator Brady Maxwell may look the part with his devastating good looks and impeccable style, but his politics rub Liz the wrong way, and she’s not going to let him off easy.

Liz’s hardball question catches Brady off guard and shows her editor, Hayden Lane, that she’s headed places as journalist. But to Liz’s surprise, she’s also headed for a secret, high-stakes romance with Brady Maxwell that could destroy the careers they each hold dear.

Unsatisfied with sneaking around and realizing things with Hayden might not be strictly platonic, Liz faces a difficult decision: Should she take things with Brady to the next level or call the whole thing off? They soon discover that in love, unlike politics, there’s rarely a clear winner.

    "Anticipation, Sneaking Sex time made 4 Excitement"
    Any additional comments?

    Her first big reporting assignment for her North Carolina college newspaper has her covering a state senator’s impromptu press conference. Brady Maxwell may have everything it takes to be a politician - a winning pedigree, devastating good looks, a body made to wear suits - but his politics rub Liz the wrong way. When Liz’s hard-hitting question catches the upstart senator off-guard, it impresses Hayden Lane, Liz’s editor who feels she’s headed for a promising career as a reporter.

    But Liz is also headed into a secret romance with Brady that could destroy both their ambitions. Though he’s a bachelor, potential voters might frown on Brady cozening up to a reporter. And Liz isn't sure sneaking around is enough for her - especially when things between her and Hayden might be less platonic than she thought.

    I really enjoyed this story. It was packed with Heat and sneaky sex that kept the excitement up. Natalie Ross is one of my favorite narrators and she bought all the characters to life beautifully. :)

    A mother, wife, sister and good friend who enjoys the simple things in life. Country music is my preference and the beach is my escape (other then my books). LOL!

    "My First KA Linde - Great Start To the Trilogy"
    What did you like best about this story?



    The man is running for the nomination for the US House of Representatives in North Carolina. He is handsome, charismatic & sexy.

    She is a college student working for the local paper the college paper. She is sent to cover the race. From the start, when they see each other, there are sparks and fireworks.

    He says they cannot be seen together because it will jeopardize his chances as she is considerably younger than him. She becomes his booty call wherever he, whenever he calls.

    I was rather annoyed at first - that she allowed herself to become the doormat. Once I accepted it the book was sexy, edgy and engaging.

    Something happens near the end that resets and changes everything. I cannot wait to start book number two.

    I enjoyed the narrator with the exception that all of her male characters sounded the same.

    Note: This is for the 18+ crowd for language and mature themes

    Credit worthy: I say yes.

    If you found my review helpful please select yes directly beneath this text. Thank you.

    If you could sum up Off the Record in three words, what would they be?

    Love this book, the tension between the characters is awesome! Very steamy scenes with plenty of plot twists to keep you on your toes!

    unbelievably realistic or tolerable.
    Why they just couldnt be together in public makes absolutely no sense. He can trapes around with other young women but not her? T here is no reason why they cant be together hes not married or dating anyone, the only thing is they have different views sorta .....

    Where does Off the Record rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Natalie's performance really made it great.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hayden, well, because!


    What about Natalie Ross’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed how she dramatized it a little bit.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There was, but if I say what it was then it would spoil it for readers that have not read this book yet.

    "Held My Attention...Will Listen to Series."
    Where does Off the Record rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a good audiobook but I have listen to better ones. But I would recommend it to anyone that enjoy erotica & sexuality books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Off the Record?

    Vicky the roommate was hilarious...I loved when she was part of the story line.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I think the narrator was excellent...I loved the southern accent.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it really did hold my attention. I will listen to the entire series.

    As far as meeting with my expectations, it was what I expected, I was hoping for more. I've never liked soap operas, don't need a sequel
