Business as Usual

Book 3, Off the Subject - Off the Subject #3

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Lexi Pendergraft has given up on finding love after a disastrous encounter with her last boyfriend. Instead, she focuses on two things: One, setting up a summer program for underprivileged middle-school aged students. And the second, getting to the bottom of her brother Reed’s recent strange behavior. His secret is destroying his relationship with his fiancée Caroline, and Lexi will do anything to help him save it. Especially after he gave up his dream to give Lexi a chance at a semi-normal college experience, something her parents threatened to steal from her after her rape a year ago.

Ben Masterson is determined to make it through his final semester of his senior year at Southern University. After recently losing his full ride scholarship, he’s suffering from sleep deprivation while trying to keep up with his mechanical engineering courses and working three part time jobs. He thinks he’s lucked out getting a job in the university math lab. The only problem is his boss—Reed Pendergraft.

As part of a role in a community theater play, Lexi wears a black wig and feels a confidence she hasn’t experienced in over a year. When she wears it to a bar close to the theater, she doesn’t think Ben, a bartender there, recognizes her. While Ben’s intrigued about what she’s up to, he’s smart enough to stay far away from his overprotective boss’s sister. Until fate forces him to help her, but why won’t she tell him her real identity?

The best of the series

This is the best one of the series. I thought the first two were good (After Math) and great (Redesigned), but this one is wonderful. There is something about Lexi and Ben that it so endearing and believable. I love that Ben is so protective of Lexi, even though he knows she is keeping a big secret and he has to face her big brother Reed. Maybe it is that Ben is a modern day knight whose chivalry is unexpected. When Lexi's story is fully revealed, it is absolutely heartbreaking, but at the same time, it shows how strong Lexi is. I can't say enough about this series, but especially this book.


Another terrific book by Denise! I'm amazed by her writing style I was intrigued from the moment I begin the series!😄
