Review: Carry Me Home by Lia Riley

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 stand alone novella is part of the Off the Map series.

Tanner and Sunny have a history. Their mothers had a brief relationship before Sunny's mother married a horrible man. Because of that when they were thirteen years old Sunny and Tanner spent a lot of time together. They were meant to be each other's first kiss, but something traumatic changed things between them. A few weeks later Tanner was dating the most popular girl in school and his star was rising because of his skating. 

Tanner is a professional skateboarder, but he isn't happy, because he doesn't think he deserves his career and reputation. Sunny has an art degree. She works in a health food store and in her spare time she's working on a graphic novel. Sunny likes having fun, she isn't a relationship girl at all. She likes to be in control and to be able to walk away without getting hurt. Tanner is a golden boy and he hasn't got much relationship experience. His first girlfriend died and after that he's only been with one girl and that was a stupid mistake. Sunny wants to let him know how bad he's messed up, how stupid he's been, but she doesn't count on having such strong feelings for him. She wants to walk away, but is that possible? Tanner wants her to stay, will he be able to convince her?

Carry Me Home is a great novella. I loved the Off The Map series. Sunny and Tanner are part of that, but it's just a small part, so this novella can be read as a stand alone. There's a lot of history and chemistry between Sunny and Tanner. Lia Riley always makes her sexy scenes meaningful and they're often decisive. I think it's great that Sunny and Tanner have their own story. I loved reading more about them and the story is a wonderful addition to the series.
