[ EPUB ] ✻ The Love Left Behind  Author Daniel de Lorne – Vejega.info Copy received from Netgalley for an honest reviewThe blurb caught my interest as I was flicking through Netgalley one day I did like the difference in their family dynamics and how they deal with them They really are both so different, but I think that was what fired their attraction, even when they didn t want it to.I liked the different ways they dealt with losses from the past, even when they are holding them back from their future.I liked the way they brought out the best in each other, when they are at their worst.I did enjoy Lyall and Nick s story, however I did feel everything was a bit rushed though the start was a little slow, if that makes sense.I know, I know, I am contra If you want an angsty book, that

asks Lyall out on a date Lyall was going to accept, until he learned what Nick does for a living Being a pilot, Lyall knows it can never work now Lyall will never get on a plane He s terrified a The Author s Note made it sound like this was his first attempt at a fluffy romance, but good lord was this not remotely close to fluffy enough for me Also, there was zero banter and zero chemistry between the leads, which I This book started out a little slow but got better the I read Nick and Lyall meet when Nick needs an electrician, and they are immediately attracted to each other They go out once and hit it of, but 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

initially caught my eye and the blurb left me excited to read this story by a new to ne author I really enjoyed the premise and generally liked the characters The writing was smooth and polished with good transitions between the narrative and dialogue, so I definitely will look for of 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 had time 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 h 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 6 They d been on one one date but there d been enough of an attraction for him to feel that spark of potential He wanted to be the one Nick came home for And the certainty of wanting forever came fast on the heels, with, He wanted He wanted forever, in Chapter 8.After that, though, the pacing smoothed 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 it annoying 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 What Happens When A Man
