Review - Leaving Me Behind by Sigal Ehrlich

Title: Leaving Me Behind
Author: Sigal Ehrlich
Release Date: May 25, 2015

Fed up with her comfortable and dull-to-boredom life, Liv takes the bravest leap, leaving it all behind. Unfortunately the crux of her issues – her entrenched, well-kept emotional guard – tags along for the ride. 

With the spirit of change burning from every pore and a determined plan to break free from her self-oppressed lifestyle to enjoy life’s simplest pleasures, she moves half way across the globe to a peaceful Spanish coastal town. 

With an aim to feel whole again, liberated and happy by herself, Liv begins her journey while maintaining weekly-cyber therapy sessions with her long time, questionable shrink. 

As Liv finally begins to enjoy her new life and experience the varied goods the exotic country has to offer, a sudden major turn leads Liv to be swept into the most tantalizing roller coaster of her life. 

A turn that leaves her questioning everything she thought was right. 

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

This was an interesting read in the sense that it's about a woman in her mid 30's trying to find herself again, when many at that age have found themselves and their story already. Now, in order to do that, Liv has decided to move to Spain to travel, discover it and take a much needed vacation at the same time. Little did Liv realize that "exploration" would forever change her life. 

Liv’s relationship with the Spanish Sebastian is HOT from the beginning, the chemistry is sizzling and I will say that towards the end my heart was breaking for both of them. I wanted to knock some sense into them, yet Liv had already made up her mind so there was no way of shaking some sense into her! Would they fight for what they have or just go their separate ways? 

I thought it was unique how each chapter title was a certain song that described the chapter, pretty cool. Sweet, hot story of loving and fighting for your happiness.

By teen age, Sigal already lived in three different continents where she was lucky enough to experience and visit varied places, meet unique people, which only helped fuel her overly developed imagination. Currently, Sigal calls Estonia home where she lives with her husband and three kids. 

Not exactly sure where they will end up next...
