Left Behind by Vi Keeland and Dylan Scott @ViKeeland - #DylanScott

ARC received from author in exchange for an honest review

Love needs no words. You had me before you even spoke.

Nikki Fallon and Zack Martin are two teenagers living worlds apart. For most of her life, Nikki dealt with the fall out of her mother’s illnesses whereas Zack, the handsome and popular quarterback, lived a charmed life. Fate and tragedy stepped in and their paths were destined to cross. Life handed both tremendous heartache, but hope and love delivered them from grief to the possibility of joy.

My heart went out to Nikki. Displaced, alone and grieving from the death of her mother, she was a lost soul. Barely holding herself together when she discovers family secrets that turn her world upside down. Nikki begins a journey, which sends her miles away from her hometown in search of answers. What she discovers are the missing pieces of her life, family and the promise of hope, which lies within Zack.

Zack was not the stereotypical YA bad-boy book boyfriend. Rather, he was sweet and irresistibly adorable. Having lost his girlfriend, whom he has known for most of his life, Zack is dealing with much guilt and grief. Until one day, Nikki comes along, and a friendship blossoms. I felt for Zack as he struggled to let go of his past and move on to find a way to open his heart to Nikki.

Written in dual points of view, Left Behind was a tender and sweet drama free read, which I enjoyed. The beginning was a bit slow in building each of the character’s background and circumstances prior to them meeting. There were plot twists – some of which were predictable and few I did not see coming. All in all, this was a lovely tale that I would recommend to fans of YA romances.
