Off Season is an adorable novella that tells the story of professional hockey player Zane Kavanaugh and Cady Dunne, a graduate student. Both characters are mentioned in prior Off Series books but you do NOT need to read those to appreciate this story.

Cady is in the US from Ireland visiting her cousin, whose husband plays hockey with Zane.  The reader can feel the instant attraction between these two and when they do connect, it is hot and just WOW!

But Cady is returning home across the pond, to the other side of the earth and how can you be with someone who is so many time zones away?  So this is just one night of bliss or is it more?

In this one, I loved Zane; he wants Cady; he has no interest in another woman; he wants this to work. I adored how Zane was faithful before they were even a couple and I loved how creative he was when they were apart.

Watching Zane and Cady communicate over the phone, via text and Skype all added to their connection as they build a friendship atop an already established sexual connection.  The friendship is truly one of my favorite things about this book, these two are forced because of the distance to truly get to know each other.

As this story wraps up, the reader is reminded how adorable Zane is and how he wears his heart on his sleeve when it comes to Cady.

The happy these two create was perfect for them!
