Product Description

It was only meant to last the summer . . .

Talia Stolfi has seen more than her share of loss in her twenty-one years. But then fate brought her Bran Lockhart, and her dark world was suddenly and spectacularly illuminated. So if being with Bran means leaving her colorless NorCal life for rugged and wild Australia, then that's what she'll do. But as much as Talia longs to give herself over completely to a new beginning, the fears of her past are still lurking in the shadows.

Bran Lockhart knows that living without the beautiful girl who stole his heart will be torment, so he'll take whatever time with her he can. But even though she has packed up her life in California and is back in his arms for the time being, she can't stay forever. And the remaining time they have together is ticking by way too fast. Though fate seems determined to tear them apart, they won't give up without a fight-because while time may have limits, their love is infinite . . .

Praise for Upside Down:

'Upside Down gave me all the feels. Romantic and poignant, the journey of love and acceptance lingers long after the book is closed' Jennifer L. Armentrout/J. Lynn, # 1 New York Times bestselling author

'Must read romance . . . Upside Down is refreshing and heartfelt New Adult contemporary romance . . . Talia and Bran's romance is a slow burn with a large serving of conflict, angst and emotion. That said, the dialogue is smart, quick-witted and enhanced by hilarious banter and Australian colloquialisms that provide laughs scene after scene' USA Today

3.75 stars--SIDESWIPED is the second installment in Lia Riley’s contemporary, new adult OFF THE MAP romance series focusing on Talia Stolfi and Bran Lockhart. Their continuing story finds our couple reunited in Australia where life together is anything but easy. From difficult family situations to finishing up thesis papers and more, Talia and Bran will discover that there is more to life than hot sex and moonlit nights. Life has a funny way of getting in the way when desires and past dreams becomes front and center.

The storyline follows Bran and Talia’s tumultuous relationship. Talia’s increasing struggles with OCD begin to spiral out of control when family issues for both Bran and herself take a decidedly darker turn. Talia reconsiders what it is she wants from life when the Peace Corps begins calling her name. While Bran has given up his need for the Sea Alliance environmental cause, there is still the hope that one day he will become an active volunteer. Talia will make the decision to move on but not out of Bran’s life, but Bran is unable to understand Talia’s desire for something more.

There is no denying Bran and Talia’s love for one another-one riddled with jealousy, concern, heartbreak and mistrust. Bran and Talia’s pasts and their family histories have scarred our couple with emotional and psychological wounds that have yet to heal. Add the potential for loss and Bran will be hurled into the despair of anguish and no hope.

The secondary characters include Bran’s dysfunctional family-from a father who desires a reconciliation with his son and a mother who is more concerned about appearances, Bran must weather the storm that is family. Add a sister whose own marriage is collapsing, Bran struggles with the right thing to do.

This is the second book in the Off the Map series and could be read as a standalone but I strongly urge you to read the awesomeness from the beginning with Upside Down. I’m not one for spoilers so if you want to know how it ends, you will have to read the book.
So, I have been hanging out for this book – I really love the characters Talia and Bran but what really hooked me is the undercurrent of so many personality traits, confliction and issues. I had high expectations for Sideswiped and it’s both delivered and denied. I did have a fantasy wish for Talia and Bran and their journey but I quickly had to let it go and enjoy the ride.
Sideswiped picks up right where Upside Down ends, they decide to make a go of their relationship with Talia returning to Australia. I was expecting this book to be all happy, ‘honeymoon’ phase … it certainly was the honeymoon period but it quickly disintegrated into the bad kind. I was actually starting to think ‘is this turning into a War of the Roses’ type story. Both parties are hyper aware that Talia’s visa is coming to an end and are trying to work out a plan. This was my disappointed point – it’s very repetitive.
Moving back to the positives, Lia continues to masterfully pen the undercurrent of issues that shape the characters just as she did through the first book. Talia struggles with her OCD and her disappointing lack of parental support. She also has to deal with her jealousy and insecurities while finding her way in this relationship. Bran struggles with his moral ethics and relationship history and its emotional hang ups.
The main message of this book and I hope readers will take from it is the theme of living in the present.
