Publisher's Summary

As a member of the New York Fire Department, single father Tim Davis is about as tough as they come. But underneath the muscles and tattoos, he still nurses a bruised heart handed to him courtesy of his first love. While on vacation with his son in New Orleans, Tim runs into the very woman that taught him about love before pulling it all away.

Holly Reynolds is rebuilding her life as an orthopedic doctor, far away from her home in New York City and her controlling father, the man responsible for tearing her and Tim apart. While she knows the hurt she caused Tim could never be forgiven, she can't help the overwhelming feelings she still has for her first and deepest love.

Truths are revealed as lies are exposed.

Two people come back together again to explore the fragile emotional bonds that still keep them tethered, even as their passion ignites hotter than any fire Tim has ever had to put out before.

First Love Rekindled

Sawyer Bennett just dropped another tasty little morsel on us -- Off Duty was off the charts hot and sexy, with a cute little kid to boot. Tim and Holly find out that sometimes you can go back. These two pick up the passion and the romance like they were never apart. This novella was pleasant listen showing how true love and heal old wounds.

Another good job by Charlotte North and Matthew Holland as narrators. They this a quick and easy listen.

Since this is a short novella, I would pay the reduced price and not use a credit. The reduced price would be money well spent.

Steamy second-chance!!

A sexy and steamy second-chance love story. Loved the characters and their connection. Their reuniting after being torn apart was beautiful. Narrators delivered the story well and conveyed the emotions perfectly.

Tim and Holly

A short, sweet, and sultry second chance romance. Just like all the other books in this series, narration was fantastic. Matthew Holland and Charlotte are phenomenal. I enjoyed this book.

The only bad one in the series

I really love the narrators, but the last book in this series is almost as if the author just needed to publish something. no matter the quality.

Very sweet & short second chance Romance

This story has at its core the sad reality of bigotry that separates a young, in love interracial couple. 10 years later fate and an accident bring them back together and maturity allows an honest discussion on what actually caused there break up. They are both still attracted and halfway in love and after spending time together the older, wiser couple fall the rest of the way. A cute kid is involved as well as long distance jobs but they appreciate their second chance. Idealistic Dr. Holly and easy going divorced dad, firefighter Tim appear to be the kind of couple that are easy to like. What is skimmed over in this sweet fantasy is that both have very stressful jobs with crazy schedules. Living with 1 crazy schedule per family is tough, but 2 is extremely difficult. Then there is a very predictable but suspiciously complete 180 with Holly and her dad. The reason doesn’t quite work. Kudos for the optimistic approach to the tough topic of racism. Not enough time was spent at the end with the resolution, but a nice HEA for a sweet couple is always appreciated.

Disappointing

Too short, too fast into a relationship, like super fast and redemption was weak and too unbelievable. Bennett has done better work than this. Also, Tim’s voice is described as deep. The narrator’s voice was so not deep.

Quick, feel good story

This was one of those quick second chance romances with a happy ending. Featuring a side character from one of the larger books in the series, Tim runs into his high school sweetheart while visiting his sister with his son. Old feelings resurface and what started out as a brief reconnection turns onto something more. It's a good story and a satisfying ending to the series, all of which were enjoyably narrated by Charlotte North and Matthew Holland.

L❤️ve the Off series!!

Each couple’s relationship builds in each book. I think it would be nice to have the couples grow older together as best friends, one big happy family 🤔⭐️⭐️

Another Great “Off” book.

Sawyer has a unique way of telling a complete story, even in a novella. Tim has shown up in other Off books, and it is nice to see him get his HEA. Well delivered by the readers.

Enjoyable, quick and sexy

A second chance novella following Firefighter and single dad Tim Davis as fate brings him face to face with his childhood sweetheart orthopaedic doctor Holly Reynolds, when Tim's son Sam fractures his wrist. Tim is visiting his sister in New Orleans where Holly now works in the ER, this means that their reunion is short lived as Tim needs to return to New York. New York, a place that Holly left behind when her hero of a father let her down badly with his bigotry. Maybe now it's time to return home, building bridges with her parents isn't a priority, but things have changed a lot in 10 years for her parents, it would appear however that Holly and Tim's feeling for each other are stronger than ever. A quick, sexy read that I thoroughly enjoyed.
