Synopsis:

Two stories so deeply intertwined, you’ll think you know how they intersect…but you’ll be wrong….

Zack Martin

The day I met Emily Bennett my whole world changed. Sure, we were just kids, but I was old enough to know my life would never be the same. She was my best friend. My destiny. My fate. I wasn’t wrong…I just didn’t know how twisted fate could be.

Nikki Fallon

After the death of my mother, moving from my dark and dreary trailer park to sunny California, I was focused on one thing – finding a sister I’d only just learned existed. Falling in love with him wasn’t part of the plan. But he filled a void I never knew was possible to fill. He had to be my fate. My destiny. Until the day I finally found out who my sister was…and how twisted fate could be.

 

My review:

Left Behind is a joint work from authors Vi Keeland and Dylan Scott. I am a huge fan of Ms. Keeland’s and was looking forward to this book and to be introduced to author Scott. Well, this story completely blew me away. It was truly amazing and may be one of the best NA books I’ve ever read.

Nikki Fallon has had a rough life. Now, however, may be the toughest it’s ever been. Her mother, after battling mental illness among other things, has passed away and now without any other family, Nikki is faced with life alone. That all changes when she reads a letter her mother left her and finds out she actually does have family. A part of her family she never knew about. It’s that discovery that leads her to a new life in California…and on a mission to find her sister. Along the way she meets Zack and things start to look up for her. Just when Nikki starts to think she may have the life she’s always dreamed of, a shocking discovery will threaten to ruin everything good she’s come to cherish. Including her relationship with Zack.

Zack Martin had it all. He was the high school quarterback, dating Emily, the cheerleading captain, had great friends and an even better family. Sure, he noticed things with Emily had changed and maybe she wasn’t the same girl she had been when they met back when they were kids but that didn’t matter. He loved her. He would always love her. Right? Just as he wonders if maybe their lives are headed in a different direction, fate steps in and crushes any dream he had of a future with Emily and throws him into a tailspin. Life as he knew would never be the same again…and it won’t be for quite some time. Until he meets Nikki. Could she be the ray of sunshine he desperately needs in the darkness that now consumes his life? Would fate give him a second chance at happiness?

Separately, both Nikki and Zack have suffered through loss but together they will be able to heal from it. They’ve found solace in each other and forge a bond through their sadness….hopefully when fate decides to throw yet another challenge their way, they can rely on their love for one another to get through.

I’ve found that a lot of the new adult books I read don’t have much meat to them. They focus a lot on the back and forth in the relationship between the hero and heroine and don’t have a substantial plot behind it. Well, Left Behind is NOT one of those new adult books. There is one main aspect to this story that I cannot give away, because it would ruin the entire experience, so I’ll do my best to explain why I loved it so much while leaving that part out.

This story is written with amazing foreshadowing and a ton of emotion. The beginning of the story gives us Nikki’s and Zack’s life apart. We learn all about them before they meet and I think it’s one aspect I loved most. Then, when they finally do meet and start on their journey together, we can appreciate it that much more. Nikki is a strong gal with a big heart and true understanding of dark times. Zack is in one of those dark times and really needed someone like Nikki to bring him back to life, so to speak. I loved them together. Loved, loved, loved. As for the foreshadowing, Nikki’s search for her sister leaves little clues along the way as to what may happen and when we finally reach the conclusion of her search and I was in emotional turmoil…as were the characters. The situation was written, and played out, so damn well and made this story so much more than a typical new adult book. Oh, and the epilogue? So amazingly perfect.

Left Behind is a book I highly recommend to anyone who loves a bit of mystery, tons of emotion, and lots of heart. I really hope these authors get together again and give us another amazing book. Thank you Vi and Dylan!

About the authors: Vi Keeland Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn’t change for the world. She is a bookworm and has been known to read her kindle at stop lights, while styling her hair, cleaning, walking, during sporting events, and frequently while pretending to work. She is a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night!

    Dylan Scott Dylan Scott is a New York trial attorney, wife and mother of four. She believes her job as a trial attorney is a subcategory to the field of entertainment more than law.   With a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature she believed teaching English was a destined career choice until she realized her life long talent of “argument” could actually be her job.   A recent, fairly boring, midlife crisis resulted in a brief stint as a middle school English teacher which confirmed that she wasn’t ready to give up the law.   Dylan has also taught legal courses at the college level and worked with at-risk inner city youth in the roles of mentor and coach. She is co-author Vi Keeland’s biggest fan.
