Blog Tour, Review & #Giveaway: ✩Left Behind✩ by Vi Keeland & Dylan Scott

Now is your chance to meet Zack & Nikki!

Two stories so deeply intertwined, you’ll think you know how they intersect…but you’ll be wrong….

Zack Martin
The day I met Emily Bennett my whole world changed. Sure, we were just kids, but I was old enough to know my life would never be the same. She was my best friend. My destiny. My fate. I wasn’t wrong…I just didn’t know how twisted fate could be.

Nikki Fallon
After the death of my mother, moving from my dark and dreary trailer park to sunny California, I was focused on one thing – finding a sister I’d only just learned existed. Falling in love with him wasn’t part of the plan. But he filled a void I never knew was possible to fill. He had to be my fate. My destiny. Until the day I finally found out who my sister was…and how twisted fate could be.

We cannot judge a song by it’s duration.
Nor by the number of its notes.
We must judge it by the way it touches and lifts our souls.
Sometimes those unfinished are among the most beautiful.

Two different people, living two different lives and yet intertwined in a way that both beautiful and tragic.

I’ll be honest, YA is not my genre of choice nor is it something I’d often make an exception to read…except when it’s Vi Keeland. When I saw she was coming out with this book along with another author, I didn’t even read the blurb before adding this to my TBR. And you know what? I’m glad I did. While it may not have been my preferred genre, I did really enjoy it.

Zack Martin

This is not your typical YA hero. He was sweet and endearingly confident without being cocky. This wasn’t a playboy or womanizer. Nor was he the party boy or wild child. I knew I’d really like Zach in just a few short pages. The popular quarterback with an equally popular and beautiful cheerleader girlfriend, his life should be every teenage boy’s dream…and yet it’s not. Emily, his girlfriend, has been his best friend since she moved in next door when they were both just 10 years old. But lately, things aren’t the same, she’s not the same. And then one day his whole world drops out from under him…

Nikki Fallon
Miles away from California, where Zack lives, Nikki just lost her mother. Left an orphan she’s desperate to find some way out without being put into the system…when she finds a letter from her mother that changes everything

What happens when fate brings two people together through a veil of hidden secrets, emotional loss, and a love story?

I haven’t been able to think about anything but kissing you for days.

That’s pretty much all the information you need. This is just one of those books you’re best going into blind.
It is a bit of a slow built at first. I’ll admit that I thought I had figured out the twist pretty much at 5%, and while I was right about a part of it…the authors definitely made the twist a lot more interesting than I had originally assumed. Though it was still slightly more predictable than I had expected.

This was a quick read, but I found myself wishing it was a little bit longer simply because I felt that the ending wrapped up too quickly. I wanted just a bit more from that. But even taking all that into consideration, I did enjoy it and would definitely recommend it to any lovers of YA. This was a step away from what I usually read, but I don’t regret it for a second.

Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn’t change for the world. She is a bookworm and has been known to read her kindle at stop lights, while styling her hair, cleaning, walking, during sporting events, and frequently while pretending to work.She is a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night!
Dylan Scott
Dylan Scott is a New York trial attorney, wife and mother of four.  She believes her job as a trial attorney is a subcategory to the field of entertainment more than law.   With a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature she believed teaching English was a destined career choice until she realized her life long talent of “argument” could actually be her job.   A recent, fairly boring, midlife crisis resulted in a brief stint as a middle school English teacher which confirmed that she wasn’t ready to give up the law.   Dylan has also taught legal courses at the college level and worked with at-risk inner city youth in the roles of mentor and coach.  She is co-author ViKeeland’s biggest fan.
