Publisher's Summary

Two years ago, Emily Burnham had an epiphany about the shallowness of her life. And she made it her mission to become a different person...a better woman. Out from under the controlling thumb of her mother, Emily is tasting the real world for the first time. And she likes it.

Nixon Caldwell has served his time in the Marine Corps, surviving two brutal tours in Afghanistan. He is back home, surrounded by what he likes best...isolation. It's certainly the easiest way to avoid confrontation of the consuming guilt that is weighing him down. When an accident brings Emily and Nix together, he soon learns he is not the master of his own fate. Struggling with his own pain, Nix tries to guard himself against Emily's charms. He wants her in his bed, but he doesn't want her in his heart.

Having grabbed life by the horns, Emily wants it all. But is she willing to accept just the small part of himself that Nix is offering? Or can she reach the part of his soul that he has deemed to be off limits?

Watch Where You're Going!

What a great way to meet a guy -- just run him down!Another enticing love story by Sawyer Bennett, but then again how could you not love an author who is not afraid to say "The Human Centipede" was a horrible movie. That aside, it was fun getting to know Emily and Nix and how they found a way to overcome their personal demons and different backgrounds to forge a relationship.

The narrators were good and work well as a combination. Charlotte's male voice often times sounded too feminine but overall it worked. I would listen to other books narrated by them.

Definitely worth the credit. This is my second book in this series so now I'm off to listen to another. Expecting the good feelings to continue in this series.

Loved it!

I loved this book! A damaged man and a new and improved women meet and the chemistry was off the charts from the very first moment. I loved how they continued to learn more about themselves and each other all the way through the very end! Highly recommended and a great addition to the series!

I have never written a review before

I am about halfway through Off Limits. I had to stop and collect myself. I don’t recall ever feeling so connected or moved by a character that I had to stop reading. As a Veteran (albeit female) I can feel where Nix is coming from. The anger, the isolation, the reluctance to seek help. I told my husband this character is speaking to me. I don’t remember the summary and if this aspect of the story was listed there. I can’t say if I whether I would have gotten the book if it was. I am glad that I did. I hope more Veterans pick up this little gem. Emily is great too, happy to see how her character has developed from the previous book. Not surprised to see her mother is still a female dog. I am sure there will be some resolution with that in the end but again I am halfway through. I just wanted to stop and say thank you for the realism in regards to his struggles as a Vet. Even down to the chosen profession you are “Spot On”. I can’t wait to get to the end... Cover me, I’m going in.

Book was good, male narrator not so much

This book was just good for me. There are other Sawyer Bennett books I like better. The reason I rated it so low was the narration. Matthew Holland’s voice was not a good fit for Nix. I could not get past this for the whole book.

NIx and Emily

An intriguing, entertaining, and heart felt journey to go on with Nixon and Emily. I went through a lot of emotions listening to this book. My heart was broken but of course in the end Sawyer Bennett pieced my heart back together; leaving me with a smile. I enjoyed every single moment of this story. Narration was fantastic.

Emily and Nix

The second book in the series has quite a bit more angst and debth to it. Emily (Ryan's younger sister) finds herself in a jam when her college and life choices no longer align with that of her mother's. By an unfortunate event, she finds herself working for Nix, the broody brother to her own brother's teammate. Nix is a retired marine vet who finds he barely likes his own company, much less that of others. When the girl who backs into his bike can't pay for the damages, he finds himself offering her a job instead. This begins the tumultuous but progressive relationship between them. It's not a pretty ride, and their end is bound to be a spectacular event, unless they can find a way to get through their differences and the ghosts of the pasts that haught them both. It was a really well-written story with a lot of angst and emotional ups and downs. Nix had a LOT of issues he had to work through and you could feel rather than just read about how it truly strained his relationships with everyone, especially Emily. Not withstanding, Emily had her faults too but a lot of that was manufactured by her upbringing. It was truly an interesting and enjoyable book experience.

Hooked from the first line

Oh my, Nix Caldwell, by the end of the book my heart broke for him. But, that said, at the beginning of the book Nix is cut off, nasty and to put it bluntly he's an A hole, plain and simple. Then we have the wonderful Emily Burnham (who, if you read book 1, Off Sides, you would know she has come a long way to earn that commendation). They meet when Emily knocks Nix off his motorcycle (I know not the best first impression), and even though Emily is a Burnham, and as such she's very wealthy, her trust fund is not yet in reach, as such she ends up working her debt off to Nix. A relationship ensues and Nix finally starts to let Emily into his life, but not completely, he still has so many demons caused by a head trauma in the Marine's and the fact that he's suffering from PTSD. Told in dual POV, the story is both sexy and heartbreaking. Add into the mix the adorable Hartley, a super cute four legged addition, and I was hooked from start to finish.
