The sparks of dislike burn hot, but the sparks of mutual attraction burn even hotter.

Ever Montgomery suffered the ultimate betrayal by the one man who she should have been able to count on for anything. It has left her hurt, jaded, and incapable of forming relationships, but it also means that she can spot a liar a mile away. 
These traits are earning her a reputation as a reporter with a keen nose for a good story and a complete understanding of the extreme power of the written word.Lincoln Caldwell is the hot goalie for the New York Rangers. At twenty-four and a rising star, he works hard and he plays even harder. He’s gorgeous and carefree—the ultimate charmer. Ladies fall at his feet and the single life has never been lived the way Linc Caldwell does it.
When Ever publishes an article about Linc containing information that she received off the record, she finds herself on the receiving end of the athlete’s fury. Rather than basking in the glory of exposing Linc as a shameless user of women, she finds herself at his mercy when he demands and receives retribution. Required by her editor to trail Linc for six weeks, Ever is forced to look at the real Linc Caldwell.
And she just might find that she has misjudged him
I have received this book from a book tour host in exchange of an honest review and I have to say Off The Record is a good addiction to good series.
Ever Montgomery is a journalist and after she writes an article about Lincoln Caldwell – goalie for the New York Rangers – with information she received off records about his womanizing ways, Lincoln is none too pleased. When he demands she needs to make amends, Ever’s editor charges her with the task of tailing Lincoln for 6 weeks. Will Ever’s opinion of Lincoln change?
Ever Montgomery is the main character and she’s a good character. She has dealt with a lot and is a little closed off but I think that’s understandable. In the end she’s able to overcome her problems. She might seem hard but she’s actually very vulnerable, I think.
Her opinion of Linc isn’t the best at first and she makes it clear on her blog what she thinks about him but that slowly changes. 
Lincoln is our main male character. He’s a hockey player and playboy. He’s sexy and he knows it. He can be extremely charming and a real smooth talker. There’s more to him than just being a playboy. He’s a genuinely good and kind guy with good intentions and a soft heart.
The relationship between Ever and Lincoln developed nicely and I had fun reading about this characters and their conflicting feelings for each other. They don’t necessarily want to like each other but as they get to know each other better their feelings start to change. They say there is a thin line between love and hate and, in this case, it is true!
All in all, Off The Records is a fun, sweet and well-written book. I liked the characters and was curious to see how their relationship would develop.
If you have read the other books in the series or enjoy a good contemporary romance, you should give this book and the series a try!
