Teri Lyn's thoughts: **Inside Out generously provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.**

I’ve been a fan of Lia Riley’s Off the Map series from the very beginning. Fortunate enough to be approved for these books on NetGalley, following Bran and Talia through their relationship without borders has been nothing short of an adventure. Each book increasingly exceeded expectations creating change and maturity not only in the characters and plot but in this author’s excellent writing as well.

Inside Out picks up a little after where Sideswiped left us hanging. As a reader, I was immediately immersed in the story from the get go – it felt different than the first two books somehow. The intensity of the beginning of Inside Out picked up right away, the danger of each Bran and Talia’s situations, the immanence of their love yet not knowing where it was leading us all strung together by engaging writing that felt more polished and succinct. Inside Out reads from both Bran and Talia’s points of view – we’ve been given both of their minds since the beginning, a choice I still relish in. The banter between the two provides instant comedic relief in each harrowing situation making the writing that much more clever and witty. Lia Riley’s words easily lace together a fluid plot taking the reader from one simple transition to the next highlighting the effect of maturity and growth on these easy to love characters whom you’ll find hard resisting their charm and rather rooting for the success of their relationship as they discover who they are both together and apart. That distinction has been a hard lesson learned for Bran and Talia but here once they make the commitment to discover themselves through each other the trust and admiration shines making their journey that much more fun.

I’ve learned to these characters along the way just as they learned to love each other in healthy, meaningful ways. Through great writing, a truly fun dialogue and even more exciting adventure of a plot this author reminded me of the trust and respect one must hold for their own life in order to trust and respect for another. She made me believe in these characters in Inside Out in a way I hadn’t before.

If you’re a fan of adventure seeking plots, extremely fun dialogue, and a well-written new adult love story about discovery and faith even in hardships. Inside Out and the whole Off the Map series is definitely for you.

About the author:
After studying at the University of Montana-Missoula, Lia Riley scoured the world armed only with a backpack, overconfidence and a terrible sense of direction. 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 mostly in Northern California.
