Left Behind by Vi Keeland & Dylan Scott ~ BLOG TOUR & REVIEWS

Excerpt
He looks up and I watch his eyes take me in.  Slowly.  They rake over me, dropping from my eyes to my glossed lips down to my exposed shoulders.  Taking his time, he follows the neckline of my simple, yet body contouring sundress, lingering when he reaches my full breasts.  I’m sufficiently covered, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t aware that the dress showed off my assets well.  Tight around my chest, gathering snuggly at the waist, with a scant amount of cleavage.  Just enough coverage to still leave something for him to imagine.  And I watch his face change as his imagination takes off running.
His eyes drift down my legs, tanned now from the eternal California sun.  Momentarily he’s lost in what he sees and doesn’t even notice I’m watching him leer.  Totally worth the extra effort getting ready tonight, I couldn’t be happier at the reaction I get.  Eventually, his eyes make their way back up to mine and I arch one eyebrow, letting him know he’s been caught.  A normal reaction might be to look embarrassed or perhaps even flustered a little.  But not Zack.  Instead, he flashes me a wicked grin.  “You look incredible.”  He’s the one doing the leering, yet I’m the one who ends up blushing.

Blurb
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.


Review By Heather 

Zack Martin was a well-rounded happy high school student  until one night changed everything and he no longer had the will to live life. Broken. Guilt ridden. Lost. Zack didn’t even have the willingness to truly go through the motions. The only thing he continued to do after that fateful day was run.

Nikki grew up with a very ill mother and a mean social worker. When her mother passes away, Nikki discovers many secrets that her mother kept from her, one being that Nikki has a long lost aunt.  Instead of being a part of the system and going into foster care until she turns, 18, Nikki locates her aunt and moves in with her in California.

Two lost souls. Two people bonded by their grief and by something else not even they could fathom.

When Zack and Nikki meet it is hard at first, there is something there but Zack is not ready to move forward. He wants to remain stuck with his guilt and remorse.  Eventually he gives into the pull and starts to open up again. When devastating secrets are revealed it is Nikki who needs convincing to stay.
What am amazing story of young love, loss, hope and finding peace within yourself.

When I first saw that this book was being co-written by Vi Keeland and Dylan Scott I could not pass it up. I have ready almost every book written by Vi and this book is far different from her previous works but it a totally good way. This book had more of a YA feel and was written in such a way at times I felt like I was in the characters’ shoes. Sometimes when a book is co-written you can tell due to slight changes in writing style among other things but the flow in the book was perfect.

This book made me feel and feel HARD! I give this 5 hummingbird-heart stars!






Review By Cristina 

Nikki Fallon and Zack Martin are intertwined on a level so deep that when you read about their story you will feel the emotional ride of loss and hope. Although once I read about one of the predictable reveals in the novel early on, it was the anticipation of the whole story coming out, the connections to everything that got me on the edge of my seat. 

This 4 stars read is one that will get you rooting for a happily ever after for both parties but getting to that point is the challenge. A must read for the soul!

About the Authors:
vi keeland bio.png
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.
