My review of Upside Down HERE
My review of Sideswiped HERE

Talia and Bran's journey has been one roller coaster ride filled with many different emotions! When I first discovered the Off the Map series, by Lia Riley, I was not sure what to expect. I read a lot of NA books and I was looking for something different. And, that is exactly what I found in this series!

Bran and Talia have been through a lot. Without giving anything away about the previous books in the series, I will say that they have found closure with the past. They have fought so hard to make their relationship work! When Sideswiped ended, which is the second book in this series, Talia and Bran were giving the long distance relationship a try to pursue some personal life goals. When Talia's new life adventure comes crashing down, Bran comes back to help her pickup the pieces. As days go by, the problems that they had in the past come back to haunt their relationship, but they are both determined to fight for each other.

I really had a blast reading this whole series! I fell in love with Talia and Bran since their first encounter. Their banter is addictive, their love is powerful and their chemistry is simply magnetic! They grew so much has individual and has a couple as well. Talia kept on fighting her demons and Bran was by her side to watch her find closure with her past. They had to learn from their past together to be able to go look forward to an HEA.

These two characters are so strong and passionate! They are so easy to relate to! They gave their all to this relationship that blossomed in the most beautiful way! Yes, there was time they just wanted to scream, cry and just let everything go. But, TOGETHER they took the bull by the horns and they overcame all the obstacles that life was sending their way. When I read Sideswiped, I was completely blown away by Talia. She was so different from the character I meet when I first read Upside Down. She grew so much and I was proud of her achievements. In Inside Out, Bran left me breathless! I could feel the deep and powerful love he feels for Talia. He was always by Talia's side. Through the good and the bad. He would do anything to see his girl happy. He accomplished that in this book! He made her realize so many things and gave her his support when she most needed it.

I am so sad to see that this series is over :( I had the most amazing time laughing, crying and screaming out loud with these characters. They have a special place in my heart and I am so grateful that I have discovered Lia Riley when she wrote her first novel. I can't wait to see what she's going to work on next!

I give, Inside Out, by Lia Riley 4.5 passionate, healing, page-turning stars!

Favorite Quotes: 
"My lips cover hers, and then she's returning my kiss with such fierceness my breath stops and I hear colors. Our bodies entwine and I inhale deep like she's a wildflower that blooms only for me as my fingers trace the delicate skin beneath her jaw. Each touch is an ode, a secret sonnet, composed just for her. I caress in lieu of words, want to give her myself, at my most basic-my body-blood and bones. Everything, every damn thing I am, or ever will be, is hers now and forever."

About the Author

Lia Riley writes offbeat New Adult Romance. After studying at the University of Montana-Missoula, she scoured the world armed only with a backpack, overconfidence and a terrible sense of direction. She counts shooting vodka with aUkranian mechanic in Antarctica, sipping yerba mate with gauchos in Chile and swilling XXXX with stationhands in Outback Australia among her accomplishments. When not torturing heroes (because c'mon, who doesn't love a good tortured hero?), Lia herds unruly chickens, camps, beach combs, daydreams about as-of-yet unwritten books, wades through a mile-high TBR pile and schemes yet another trip. She and her family live in Northern California.
