About OffsidesRyan Burnham is the privileged son of a U.S. Congressman and captain of his university’s hockey team. While he is on the verge of fulfilling his dreams to play in the NHL, his parents want him on a different course. One he is expected to accept for the sake of his family’s public image.
Forced to abandon her music career, after the heart breaking death of her parents, Danny Cross exists on the opposite side of the tracks from Ryan. She is struggling to make her own way, working two jobs, attending college part time and volunteering in a homeless shelter. She is on a mission to build her own success.
With a chance meeting, their vastly different worlds collide, causing each to evaluate whether they are truly on the correct path to self-fulfillment and happiness. Can their relationship survive?
My opinion:First let me tell you something about my reading progress of this book. I started this by accident, I picked the wrong book on GoodReads I meant to put Off side by Juliana Stone to my Read pile, but I ended up putting this one there. Then it kept showing up at my read pile so I thought what the heck, I will start reading this then.
When I first started I thought it was not really original after reading similar books. So I put it down and almost didn't pick it up again. But since not finishing a book is not in my nature I picked it up again after I read some other very different books. I started to enjoy and appreciated more after that. And the last 40% of the book turned out to be really interesting.
After the instant love and the acceptance of Danny by Ryan's friends, I felt it was to good to be true. This bothered me, I was afraid there wouldn't be any resistance from the outside world, regarding the relationship between Ryan and Danny. I couldn't have been more wrong.
