Mini Review: Inside Out - Lia Riley

Inside Out (Off the Map, #3)Inside Out by Lia Riley

A satisfying end to Bran and Talia's story, but I did ask myself along the way just how many more obstacles could be placed between them.

Things I liked: The chemistry between the pair is still red hot. The change of setting from Australia to California kept things fresh.

Things I didn't like so much: So much was made of the possibility of lasting effects from the illness, and then she left hospital and it was never mentioned again. The self fellating gerbil. What was that about? Obstacles seemingly for the sake of obstacles.

Overall I enjoyed it, but had their story ended with the second book, I wouldn't have been overly disappointed.

3.5 hearts.

  1. Hmm definitely sounds like there's a lot of drama in this book! I think I recently just got a copy of the first book in this series for review (not quite sure where it is tbh lol, might be buried under a random pile of books), and I'll definitely keep in mind that it's a bit of a drama filled series.

    1. A 3 book romance series needs to have a bit of drama, or there'd be nothing to write about after the first one :)

      I really enjoyed the first book, my only niggles being that the author calls it Flinders Station instead of Flinders St Station, and has the Melbourne Cup happening on a Thursday.

      The main character of the series suffers from extreme anxiety and OCD, and it's one of the most honest portrayals of those particular illnesses that I've seen. I'd recommend the series for that reason alone.

      Thanks for stopping by!
