Book Description:“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?

Wendy's 5 Sexy Bitten Lips Review:
Nixon "Nix" Caldwell is smokin hot!
We first meet Emily in Off Sides (Ryan and Danny's story) and she's a snotty bitch that I loathed upon first meeting. However, closer to the end, we got a glimpse of her decent side. In Off Limits we really see how much she grew into her own person outside of the reins of her mother. Emily is outgoing and high spirited and well loved and....she's wonderful. Until it comes to Nix. And then, she's just crazy! Of course after meeting Nix, I certainly can't blame her.
Nixon is a former Marine just looking to work in his metal shop and get his house finished. What he doesn't expect while staying with his brother, is a totaled motorcycle and chance encounter with a beautiful smart ass.
To pay off her debt to Nix, Emily starts to work for him doing organization work in his shop. The chemistry is immediate! Emily is like the moth to Nix's flame and they're both going to get burned, but will it be a steamy sensual burn or will it be they kind of burn you just can't recover from?
There is one thing that neither of them can fight
Oh, it is! and, it's enough to have you fanning your panties.
When Emily is in a bad situation, she calls on Nix to help her out. After playing hero for the night, Nix is reluctant to let Emily know him, but she's slowly catching on to his habit of keeping people out by being standoffish.
Nix is pushed even closer to Emily after a man from her past shows up.
This story just gets better and better the further you read. I was glued to the pages and couldn't put it down. I got angry, excited and really emotional at points. I loved watching Em and Nix grow and find each other.
Sawyer Bennett has managed to keep me in the throes of passion between two angsty people and I love it!
Did I mention how SEXY Nix is?!?!? WHEW!!!
