Lyall finds out that Nick is a pilot and feels that they have no future together his brother died in a plane crash and he is terrified of not only flying but losing another loved one in a plane crash

writing was smooth and polished with good transitions between the narrative and dialogue, so I definitely will look forof the author s work despite this being a bit of a rocky read for me As much as I enjoyed The Love Left Behind and was caught up by the story, there were aspects that frustrated me enough to step away at times From the start, it was clear Nick and Lyall had a spark even though they were quite different I liked the idea of the pull of their attraction countered by the push of their lifestyles and interests, and was even prepared to overlook how fast both men were thinking about forever after a date and a few conversations What didn t sit so well with me was the lack of communication Even when the secrets were meant to protect or not overwhelm their new partner, they felt like plot points vs natural conflicts and ended up leaving me exasperated Perhaps if there weren t quite so many hiccups to these two aligning covered in a relatively short book, I would have hadtime to enjoy their relationship rather than get caught up in the drama keeping them apart That said, I did keep picking the book back up and was happy to see these men get their happily ever after In the end, The Love Left Behind was a bit of a mixed bag but I think readers who don t mind a bit of drama may enjoy this title eARC received via Netgalley Overall, this was a sweet story, an entertaining read, with endearing characters and interesting details.I did find the beginning to be oddly paced, with both characters thinking about forever after a single date I can certainly understand seeing promise or potential after a single date, but these sentiments seemed overly dramatic Chapter 5 I ll find someone But will you He shrugged I hope so I thought it might have been Lyall, but AndChapter

out and the rest of the story flowed well.One other distracting oddity I have always found it bizarre that romance authors portray chemistry between characters as an actual physical spark This author was completely over the top with this, and what made itannoying was the fact that one main character was an electrician For example the electrician had kept him buzzing all day Such a small light touch but electricity zapped his skin having him so near sent a low level current buzzing just below the surface of his skin Anticipation charged the space between them He buckled from the second jolt rippling outward that burst through the ends of his fingers and increased the tingling in his lips In general though, I enjoyed it quite a bit Thank you for the chance to review it.An advanced reader

and The Love Left Behind by Australian author Daniel de Lorne is exactly that a sugary tonic of romance and emotional drama It may be full of empty calories but that s the fun of it Have you ever watched one of those Hallmark Christmas movies The kind where a girl usually a career driven city girl ends up in the country on assignment, or gets stuck there through fate and ends up meeting a handsome man often divorced or just getting over the death of their first wife and learns to love again after after overcoming a few minor hurdles They re holiday TV catnip Easy viewing that s full of fluff and sugar but manages to short circuit thecynical part of your brain I mean, you don t actually care about any of the characters, the dialogue is cheesy and the dilemmas ridiculously over wrought, but you still get excited when a puppy appears in the third act The Love Left Behind had that kind of appeal to the heart approach without the puppy Overall I liked the story but I found the main characters under developed and the relationship seemed forced The way the author used electrical and flying metaphors respective to their professions seemed clever at first but quickly became so overdone as to be aggravating and annoying I think it is one of the main reasons why the characters lacked depth, they were only able to describe their experiences in terms of their jobs which made them appear one dimensional There was so much else going Overall I liked the story but I found the main characters under developed and the relationship seemed forced The way the author used electrical and flying metaphors respective to their professions seemed clever at first but quickly became so overdone as to be aggravating and annoying I think it is one of the main reasons why the characters lacked depth, they were only able to describe their experiences in terms of their jobs which made them appear one dimensional There was so much else going on with the family dynamics and grief sub plots, and all this could have been used to inform the characters experiences, but even these topics were explored with electrical and flying metaphors so much that their gravity was reduced.I think the plot had a lot of potential but it felt rushed and I got the impression that the author wasinterested in meeting a deadline than providing a quality read
