That’s what you will see when you read Left Behind by Vi Keeland and Dylan Scott.
This book was like an emotional roller coaster, and the pages just flew by! It was super obvious to me what the twist in the book was going to be. Whether or not that was intentional, I’m not sure, but that didn’t stop me from continuing on to see how the story played out. And I’m so glad I did. The story was, just simply, beautiful. It’s a story that I hope becomes a movie. I would love to see this played out on the big screen.
The writing was easy to follow, and it was so full of emotions. And the characters are ones that readers will connect with and understand. Both Zach and Nikki are so likeable that readers won’t be able to tear their eyes away from their budding relationship.
I will admit that there was a moment where I did shed a tear or two. That’s what the writing did for me. It completely pulled me into the moment. I felt as though I were right there with the characters, witnessing first hand, the raw emotion of the scene.
Fans of contemporary reads with a twisty plot line with really enjoy Left Behind by Vi Keeland and Dylan Scott. If you’re looking for a book to bring out some emotion from you, this is it. I wouldn’t hesitate in reading this one for yourself. You can thank me later.
