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.

That being said, I can't stop thinking about Sideswiped. Talia and Bran have such a passionate love for each other, in a way where they see each others' flaws and accept them, and are crazy for each other anyway. I think this is what makes their story resonate long after the book is over. Also, I think the author did an incredible job showing the dilemmas that develop when you fall in love with someone at the wrong time. In this case, Bran and Talia are just too young for this type of love, so they have to negotiate between their love and reality - that they've barely lived their lives yet and they both have things they need to do. I think this heart wrenching situation was captured beautifully and I often felt like I was right there with the characters as they struggled with it.
I am not usually a big reader of the New Adult genre, but this book, and this series, is for every young reader,AND every "older" reader who remembers what it was like to be young and deeply in love, and still trying to figure out they were and what they wanted. Highly recommended!!
Book two has Talia and Bran living together in a quaint little cottage (one that I so badly covet). They are working through making their relationship work while finishing up their studies. Talia's OCD starts to spiral and Bran is faced with some hard decisions in regards to his dream job. These two are put through the ringer in this book and their relationship is pushed to the brink.
I really loved how Talia handled the whole situation with going for your dream AND being with the person you love, something that I think a lot of twenty-somethings think is not possible. I saw this a lot with my friends in college--they'd give up studying abroad just to make sure that they wouldn't lose the guy they loved. It was refreshing to have a strong heroine that wanted to make her relationship work, but also didn't want to compromise her (or Bran's) dream. She gives Bran a swift kick in the ass when he needs it the most and it makes them stronger because of it.
I love this couple so hard and can't wait to see them get their happily ever after they deserve.
I will say that I usually hate sequels/series of romance books. I tend to prefer companion novels, where we focus on the other characters from a story but glimpse our favorites from a previous book. This is because I think "great, they're in love and happy, why torture them? Just let them go."
I love a quick and easy happily ever after romance.
That's not real. And I get that maybe we don't always want real. But sometimes we need it--real has lessons to impart. That being said, I could have used this book in my late teens/early twenties, because I was an idiot, and I made a ton of s*** decisions based on what I thought was love. I think this trilogy really could have helped me get it together.
