Regarding the language, I must say that I found it flowing, and a rare mistake did not make the story less enjoyable.
I really enjoyed this book as it was a romance with a generous amount of hot sex, which is always a favourite of mine!
Although essentially a love story, it was not overly 'saccharine sweet', which is often a criticism I have with books of this genre. I engaged with the characters and found it easy to relate to them, flaws and all!
It was easy for me to embrace the storyline, as I too spent some time living in Spain through work and wasn't surprised when the main character Liv, fell for local guy Sebastian. I found the intial intensity of their physical relationship to be pitched just right and definitely raised the temperature!
What Sigal managed to achieve beyond that, was to carefully develop their inital lust-filled relationship into one which was much deeper and meaningful. We learned more about why Liv had self-esteem issues and why she was resisting the natural progression into falling in love and 'giving herself' in a relationship. I could see how her mother's relentless criticisms and negative comments would affect her mindset and why regular therapy may be useful, but this aspect never really seemed to serve any purpose or help Liv in her mindset. I also felt the journal aspect was not explored in any great detail so seemed a little inconsequential.
However, what I loved most (unsurprisingly) was Sebastian and how he came across. He obviously worshipped Liv from the start but fell for her more and more as he managed to break down her resistance to 'becoming a couple'. He helped her come to terms with her negative body issues, although this could possibly have been explored further.Read more ›
In all honesty I almost gave this book up; I started to read and couldn’t quite get into it so stepped away from it. I picked it back up a few weeks later and started again, this second time I just ran away with it. I’ve read Sigal Ehrlich’s Retrace so I was quite interested to see if her style had changed any and if the problems I encountered were still with this one. Yes they were, mainly with the language, that slight hint of European (I think) coming through and some phrases/words not quite fitting in particular scenes or paragraphs. And it had nothing to do with where this book was set. It doesn’t mar the story in any way but now and again it stifles the reading flow and caused me to re-read certain parts. Initially I felt that the first few chapters were too overdone, as if it was trying too hard to be clever. This book is richly descriptive but sometimes the verbiage was too complex, as if the attention was made more towards the writing than the plot. Does that make sense? This is not your quick read, no thinking kind of book; you really needed to concentrate to understand a lot of the dialogue and text through this book. Saying that, the further I read the easier it became to settle down into Sigal’s style. I remember this being the same in Retrace. This one grew on me, to the point that I came away feeling extremely glad I gave it that second chance otherwise I would have missed out on a fantastic story.
This brings me to Liv and Sebastian, two characters which I undoubtedly fell for hook, line and sinker. Liv was such a complex person to pin down, her insecurities shone bright as the day is long and this was so heart-breaking to read.Read more ›
Leaving Me Behind Sigal Ehrlich
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance, erotica
Sigal is an author new to me so I had no idea what to expect from this book, but it’s got some great reviews so I thought I’d enjoy it. I was right – its a fabulous read, not a bog standard a meets b and they live HEA romance, but a wonderful journey, a voyage of discovery and along the way we learn with Liv.
Poor Liv, an only child and her mum has always been pushing her to be that bit more...however well Liv does its never quite enough for her mum, and Liv strives to be what she will approve. Its taken things from her though, left her feeling that she just isn’t good enough, thin enough, clever enough and yet she’s a successful and respected career lady who’s worked hard to get where she is. She’s been in therapy for years with the wonderfully named Dr smartass – well, that's what she calls him, taking the pronunciation of his names to extremes....she wants answers from him, and all he does is give her more questions, til after yet another frustrated call with her parents and session with the doc she decides to make a huge change and take a year out to live abroad. How brave of her. Isn’t it something many people think about? Leaving life behind and starting again, clean slate? She picks a town in Spain simply because she liked the name...and it brings her to things and people she’d never imagined.
I loved Liv, but at times got sooo frustrated with her. The influence her mum had on her spirit was awful, and even now in her thirties she’s still lacking in her own mind. Never thinks she’s enough, so when she meets the delicious Sebastian she lets him have everything physically but keeps her emotions and heart tightly wrapped.Read more ›
