Blog Tour: Off Limits by Sawyer Bennet

Release date: April 16, 2013
Publisher: Big Dog Books, LLC
New Adult Contemporary Romance

“There is a vulnerability there, hovering just below the surface. And I want to pick at it until I expose it. Then I want to kiss it."

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? Can she reach the part of his soul that he has deemed to be Off Limits?

This book is the follow up novel to Off Sides by Sawyer Bennett. It can be read as a stand-alone.

My Review:
While you do not have to, I have actually read the first in the series and I do recommend it because this series is just GREAT! Getting to read about Ryan's little sis was awesome! I loved Emily! I wasn't a huge fan of her in the first book, but I love how her brothers experience has helped her change for the better.

Anyone who is fan of the reformed "bad boy" who doesn't do relationships and ultimately succumbs to the charms of a girl who affects him like no other will LOVE this. I will admit these are my favorite type of books. Nix has the wrong impression of Emily, or in this case the impression of who she was before she cut the apron strings and stopped doing what her mother wanted.

Sawyer Bennett has managed to take this all a step further by bringing in the military and PTSD aspect. And the tattoos, whewwww... SWOON! 

GREAT, GREAT, GREAT New Adult Read!
