Amazing journey with SIDESWIPED by Lia Riley

Title: Sideswiped

Author: Lia Riley

Series: Off the Map #2

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Publication: October 7th, 2014

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 . . .

My Review 
After Upside Down, I couldn’t wait for Talia and Bran’s story to continue.  Sideswiped picks right up where their story leaves off.  I loved that in Talia and Bran we get characters that are spot on in delivering the emotions and struggles of their age.  The alternating points of view really work in pulling you into their story.
I’m looking forward to seeing where Inside Out takes their story.  C’mon December!

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.

Amazing journey with INDECENT PROPOSAL by Molly O’Keefe




 September 2014

Boys of Bishop, book #4



 Perfect for readers of Susan Mallery and Rachel Gibson, Molly O’Keefe’s gritty and sensual tale of passion and politics features the brother of the heroine from the author’s beloved novel, Never Been Kissed. He’s a driven man who refuses to be distracted—until he meets a beautiful bartender who just may change his life.

With his chiseled jaw and his thick blond hair, Harrison Montgomery was born to lead. Four generations of Montgomery men have served the state of Georgia and now he’s next in line. Harrison, though, is driven to right wrongs: namely to clean up the political mess left by his father’s greed and corruption. But Harrison must first win his congressional bid, and nothing can get in his way—not even an angel who served him whiskey and gave him a shoulder to lean on and a body to love for a night. Problem is, she’s pregnant. Scandal is brewing and there is only one solution: marriage.

Damage control? Ryan Kaminski can’t believe that a cold, calculating political animal now inhabits the body of the emotionally vulnerable stranger who’d given her the most unforgettable night of her life. Really, she doesn’t want anything from Harrison, except to be left alone to have her baby in peace. But Ryan is broke, jobless, and essentially blackmailed by Harrison’s desperate family to accept this crazy marriage deal. For two years, she will have to act the role of caring, supportive wife. But what is Ryan supposed to do when she realizes that, deep in her heart, she’s falling in love.

My Review

I love the Boys of Bishop series and couldn’t wait to read Indecent Proposal.  Sex, politics, family and love…the makings of a story to remember.  At first I just wasn’t sure if I was going to like the Harrison and Ryan match.  It wasn’t very long before I was convinced it couldn’t be any other way.   Both are strong characters but we get that glimpse of vulnerability that is irresistible.

Molly O’Keefe continues to deliver emotion-packed contemporaries that are filled with realistic characters that stay with you.  If you haven’t picked up the Boys of Bishop, you’re missing out on strong characters that pull you into their lives and have you remembering them long after the last page.

THE REAL THING on Goodreads

In this electrifying novel from Cassie Mae, two close friends surprise themselves by shifting from platonic love to sexual attraction.

Eric Matua has one friend—his best friend and childhood sweetheart, who needs a place to stay for the summer. Mia Johnson has thousands of friends—who live in her computer. Along with her email chats and Facebook notifications, Mia also devours romance novels, spending countless hours with fictional characters, dreaming of her own Romeo to sweep her off her feet. When she starts receiving supersweet messages from a stranger who thinks she’s someone else, Mia begins to believe that real love is possible outside her virtual world.

When the two friends become roommates, Mia finds herself falling harder than she ever thought she could. But Eric keeps his desires locked away, unsure of himself and his ability to give his best friend what she deserves in a boyfriend. As her advances are continually spurned, Mia splits her time between Eric and her computer. But she soon realizes she’s about to lose the only real thing she’s ever had.


We start off in Keiser, Florida but head to Daytona Beach for the summer.  Mia is headed to the beach to work the summer and catch up with her best friend, Eric.  Eric has returned from Samoa and staying the summer at the family’s condo.  The beach makes a great setting for their summer story.

With a summer as roommates, Eric and Mia finally admit to long felt feelings and move beyond friends only.  As their relationship develops, Eric continues to battle anxiety and panic attacks.  Not knowing why Eric sometimes pulls away, Mia’s virtual world is always at her fingertips…her books, texts, facebook and twitter notifications, and email chats.

The Real Thing has it all.  I loved the realistic portrayal of all things social media that Cassie Mae gives us in this sweet, emotional read.  The Real Thing had me smiling, laughing, sniffling and turning the pages until I hit the last page.
