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.

The sexual tension is OFF the charts.

I read this years ago and enjoyed the delicious sexual tension it had. When I saw it on the Romance Package, I could not resist a “re-read” through my ears. Narrators Charlotte North and Matthew Holland were perfectly cast here.

This is the second novel in Sawyer Bennett’s OFF Series. And wow, this story goes OFF! I really enjoyed the chemistry of this couple. I don’t usually like an angry, dominating male but here, I found Nix’s commanding nature to be oh, so HOT! Emily is a cold secondary character in book 1, OFF SIDES, but by book 2 she is convincingly likeable. The first person narrative in dual POV is like being in the head of both Emily and Nix. Their romance is intense, and I felt their emotions take me on a rollercoaster ride. It was fabulous!

Emily is the younger sister of Ryan, hero of book 1, OFF SIDES. I would characterise that book as a sweet, whirlwind romance with lots of slow-burn build-up in a short span of time – a couple of weeks. This book 2 OFF LIMITS is not sweet; the sexual tension between Emily and Nix is electric, and the slow-burn here is compelling in a different way. They spend months skirting around each other, breaking barriers, getting to know one another, developing feelings and ignoring their chemistry. When the emotion is finally unleashed and sexy times start, they are HOT. It’s not all easy though, and they have heart-stopping challenges to overcome. Nix’s history makes him a wound-up-tight character (ready to spring – whew!), and Emily’s history makes her uncertain. I enjoyed reading about them learning to find peace within themselves and then finding happiness with each other. They both had a lot of growing to do. It was a joy to witness.

I feel Sawyer Bennett got the formula right here: the perfect blend of chemistry, sexual tension, sweet and bitter personalities, soft and hard people, raw emotion, give and take. The sexy times were sensual and connected to the emotion and therefore meaningful and beautiful.

So this (OFF LIMITS) and OFF SIDES remain my favourite books by this author. I recommend them as they stand the test of time in the “re-read” years later.

Book Two.

4.5🌟’s.

This is the first book I have read in this series.
I added the audio to go with it, as I feel it enhances the experience even more.
I was so caught up in Emily and Nix’s tale, it was a dual POV perspective and I love that.
Nix was a trouble ex marine who felt so much guilt over an incident back in Afghanistan that it was ruling his life. There was only one thing that could open this man up to the possibility of love, and that was acceptance, forgiveness and understanding the full complexity of the situation. Emily might have been the person who warranted such love, but it was up to Nix to heal himself and finish his journey.
I am now headed back to read the other books in this series when time permits.

This one touched me...

I think this is my favorite Sawyer Bennett series. I read them out of order but enjoyed every one. This one entertained me the whole way through and really touched me in the end. The Characters are tragically flawed but so real and relatable. The Narration doesn't hurt either. I'm a huge fan of Charlotte North. Bravo!!!

Oh. Man. Nix

What did you love best about Off Limits?

The push and pull of Emily and anixon. I love that she gave as good as he did and she pushed him to open up

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nixon. Nixon all day

Any additional comments?

I think this will be my favorite book of the series. There's just something about brooding, closed off men. I love to watch them open up and fall

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.
