Renner Caldwell has her life perfectly mapped out. She has the ideal relationship, the perfect job and all is right in her world. When a shameful turn of events happens, she boards the first plane bound for Ireland to lick her wounds and get her head back on straight.

Cillian O’Braidagh is the sexy, front man to the Irish rock band, Over The Edge. His rising fame and sultry voice make him every woman’s fantasy come true. Not to mention his single-minded determination. To put it simply: what Cillian wants, Cillian always gets. And he wants Renner, because there’s just something about the flame-haired beauty he has to possess.

If their relationship was just about sex and rock n’ roll, it would be easy for them to get lost in their desires. Only their relationship is anything but a hook-up. Will lies, deceit and hidden tragedy get in the way, making the path to true love uncertain? Or will the girl whose been knocked Off Course, find her footing with the man who is teaching her it’s okay to lose control?

Five years ago while visiting her cousin Cady, Renner Caldwell meets and falls for a man named Cillian.  Cillian is the front man for the Irish rock band, Over The Edge.  Renner friends herself falling for him and when he pays attention to her, Renner practically swoons.  But her fairy tale is short lived when she tells Cillian she wants to take is slow and finds him in the arms of the next girl he wants to make out with.  Cady warns her that Cillian is the ultimate player and is not worth her time.  At that time Renner thinks her cousin is right.

She still feels that way five years later when she returns to Dublin to hide from her life back home.  She no longer has her job at Delta Airlines and is humiliated and hiding from her former life and from an ex she hopes never to see again.  Cillian is excited to see she's back, Renner not so much so.  She does everything she can to stay away from him, but he shows up and stays at the pub where she works night after night, until finally he is walking her home and making progress.

But Renner is not looking for something serious, she's looking for a man to let loose with.  After all, Cillian doesn't fit her required criteria for any man she plans to date.  They finally fall into one another's arms but when her ex returns for another chance, secrets are revealed, and another member of Over The Edge Maeve is determined to make Cillian hers again can the feelings they have towards one another be able to withstand everything in their way?  Or will the things around them keep them apart forever?

I loved this latest installment of the series.  This series just keeps getting better and better.  Sawyer has a real gift for making all her characters memorable and leaves you craving the next book when this one is done.  Especially with the epilogue at end of this one.  Will I tell you what that was about, there's no way I'll tell you all of that.  I was so excited when I got the opportunity to read this book and I know that waiting for the next installment and the next Caldwell relative will be well worth the wait, 5 stars!
