BLOG TOUR: Inside Out (Off The Map #3) by Lia Riley

Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes, this is my stop on the INSIDE OUT blog tour which is being hosted by Good Choice Reading.

Series: Off the Map #3
Author: Lia Riley
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Publication: December 2nd, 2014

When Talia first moved from California to Australia to study abroad, she never dreamed she'd find the love of her life. Bran understands her like no one ever has before. And despite the numerous challenges they've faced, they've always managed to figure out how to stay together. But this time they'll face their toughest hurdle yet. Is their love strong enough to keep them together?

~ My Thoughts ~

That bicep though. ;) But really, these covers are so pretty!

When I first began this series, I figured I was jumping into another contemporary NA where: Girl meets Boy (in this case, halfway around the world). They flirt. They kiss. They do----smexy stuff. Girl has a traumatic past, Boys attempts to fix her. They breakup. Get back together. More smexy stuff. Live HEA. The End.
But that isn't what happened with this series. 
At all. 
Instead, I got a front row seat to what a real relationship between two people who are complex, quirky and flawed looks like. Bran and Talia aren't even from the same country, let alone the same Continent, so they have to work extra hard if they want to make a go at this thing called, LIFE, together. 
And they do. 
They're there for each other in good times and bad, sickness and health, success and failure...I now pronounce you, Bran and Talia!
But seriously, when one is caught in a riptide of insecurity and self-loathing, the other one dives right in and helps keep them afloat until they both make it back to shore.
When one of them is struggling to overcome their demons and wants to find an easy way out, the other reminds them, the only way out is through. Because that's what you do when you love someone. I enjoyed watching Bran and Talia grow, both as individuals and as a couple and INSIDE OUT is the perfect ending for the OFF THE MAP series! 
I'm really going to miss the bicep them.  

~ About Lia ~

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 a Ukranian 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.
