Goodreads’ Book Description:
Love doesn’t have to be perfect to be true…
Years ago, Tanner Green loved Sunny Letman. She was meant to be his first kiss, first love, first everything. Then their world spun upside-down and out of control.
Free-spirited Sunny doesn’t do commitment. Sure, guys are great for a night or a week, but she always leaves first. That is, until professional skateboarder and town golden boy, Tanner Green, unexpectedly walks back into her life.
Despite their broken history, a fragile and undeniably electric connection still holds them together. Now Tanner has to convince Sunny that even though love isn’t always perfect, it’s worth sticking around for. . .
This sweet novella was such a fun read. It had the perfect amount of steamy romance and back story for Sunny and Tanner. I was nervous about reading Tanner’s story, only because he isn’t really seen as a fantastic, stand-up guy in the Off the Map series. I’m so happy I got the chance to really get inside his head because he definitely changed my mind and had me head-over-heels in love with him!
“I’m not single, just in a committed relationship with personal freedom.”
Sunny is hilarious and quirky and kind of all over the place. She’s got this thing about her freedom and hates the idea of being tied down to someone or something. She’s an incredibly talented artist and an honest-to-god free spirit. Connecting with Tanner Green is obviously terrifying for her, but she’s not afraid to risk a little in order to get a lot.
“How can my heart be chained to this guy and still feel free?”
I loved reading into their history and seeing exactly how connected they really are. Seeing them tread lightly around each other to finally crash together was so beautiful. I loved reading about their love.
“Sunny is like her name. You can’t hope to hold sunshine. You can only bask in it for as long as it’s here.”
Lia Riley is a magician with her words. She seriously works magic every single time. If you loved the Off the Map series, don’t miss out on CARRY ME HOME.
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.
