Author: Sigal Ehrlich
Release Date: May 25, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance



Fed up with her comfortable and dull-to-boredom life, Liv takes the bravest leap, leaving it all behind. Unfortunately the crux of her issues – her entrenched, well-kept emotional guard – tags along for the ride. With the spirit of change burning from every pore and a determined plan to break free from her self-oppressed lifestyle to enjoy life’s simplest pleasures, she moves half way across the globe to a peaceful Spanish coastal town. With an aim to feel whole again, liberated and happy by herself, Liv begins her journey while maintaining weekly-cyber therapy sessions with her long time, questionable shrink. As Liv finally begins to enjoy her new life and experience the varied goods the exotic country has to offer, a sudden major turn leads Liv to be swept into the most tantalizing roller coaster of her life. A turn that leaves her questioning everything she thought was right. 
THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Review By: Tatia

If I could give this more than 5 stars, I absolutely would. Sigal Ehrlich continues to surprise me with every new, wonderful book she sets free. I become more and more infatuated with her and her style of writing with each new story. Having loved her since reading Layers, I can honestly say that I believe Leaving Me Behind is her best work to date. It was so different from everything she's done previously. It was sweet, sexy, and had me, at times, not knowing what to expect next. It was a page-turner in the truest since. I simply could not get enough.

It's not just about the hero and heroine's connection, it's about so much more. Liv needed a break from life. A dream she's had for so long, she takes the plunge and goes on the vacation she's always wanted. While there, she meets some of the best people, a great group of ladies who she finally feel a connection to, which is rare for Liv. She also meets Sebastian Noé Balle. With his sexy, Spanish accent and his teasing smile, he's a sight that no one minds looking at. There's an instant connection, one that may start as just physical, but transforms before either of them realize it. But Liv has walls up that prevent her from seeing it, walls that could tear them apart.

"Me estoy enamorando de ti."

That sentence alone had me wishing for my own Spanish lover to come and whisper sweet nothings in my ear. As much as she tries to be, even Liv isn't immune to all that is Sebastian.
And can I just talks about Liv's friends for a minute. Vivian, Dominique, Stephy, Embar, and Alma are some of the best girlfriends you could ask for. They're all so different from each other, yet they compliment and balance each other out perfectly.

I can't say enough about this book. It's one of my favorite reads of the year. If you're looking for something out of the ordinary, more than just the typical guy meets girl and falls in love, and more about a woman trying to finally start living and making true connections along the way, this story fits the bill. You will not be disappointed. You'll wish you had discovered the absolute genius that is Sigal Ehrlich and all that she is sooner.


  “So how did you like our wine?” he gestures with a hint of a knowing glee at the half empty evidence on the table. “Umm, it was good.” He cocks an eyebrow. “Frankly, I’m not much of a wine person. I’m more a sweet cocktail kind of gal. It was very good, but I couldn’t elaborate on the taste or anything else like you experts would…” “I see…” he says somewhat pensive. He motions for me to take a seat at the sofa, and settles himself on the coffee table in front of me. His legs are slightly parted, almost touching mine nudged between them. He takes the bottle and deftly gets rid of the cork. “Let’s try to do it together,” he says, his voice a degree huskier. “You need to use your scent, taste and sight to evaluate wine.” He gives me a soft, yet very suggestive look. “Sight,” he says as he brings the bottle to his mouth. His lips wrap around the narrow opening and he takes a slow sip. I swallow hard. He then inclines his head toward me, cups my neck to slightly tilt my head back and touches his mouth to mine. As I part my lips, his tongue reaches in with some of the wine and starts to stroke mine through the rich moistness. It twirls around, letting the delectable liquid reach every part of my mouth. I suck hard on his tongue, tasting the wine and my desire that grows with every erotic stroke of his. “Taste,” he says low as he pulls back. “Keep your eyes closed, Liv. I’m going to do that again. I want you to suck on it, swirl it in your mouth, and try to think what flavors come to your mind.” And he does, and everything inside me tightens, and everything around me melts, and everything about me arouses. “Open them, now tell me if it’s balanced,” he kisses my lips gently. “Complex.” Another kiss. “Evolved.” A more profound one. Tastes like an orgasm? I close my eyes, lick my slightly pulsing lips, his hand trails slowly under the hem of my dress, holding my thigh. I lick my lips again. “It tastes … warm, and rich.” “Mmm, hmm,” his hand sprawls, making my skin burn at the spot. “Fruity, and sexy,” I add quietly, my eyes still closed, the edge of my lips slightly curving. “Keep going,” his other hand cups my cheek, and his thumb is touching, not touching my lips. “It tastes like something I want again in my mouth.” My eyelids slowly lift and I look at him with everything that rages inside of me. “Sold,” he says gruffly, with a hint of a smile. “Oh, and there’s the scent,” he adds next, nuzzling the area just below my ear. “Divine.”
