The Love Left Behind What happens when a man with his heart in the clouds falls for one whose feet are firmly stuck to the groundPilot Nick Galanos is on a mission to visit the fifty countries his mother couldn’t before she died But the closer he gets to his goal the he worries that he won’t have anything to show for it but stamps in a crowded passport On a rare visit back home he meets a hot electrician with a killer set of dimples Suddenly a future of shared adventures seems possibleExcept for one thingLyall Turner’s big brother died in a plane crash He’s been afraid of flying most of his life but there’s no shortage of destinations in Australia that don’t reuire a boarding pass But then he meets Nick and suddenly his ‘no biggie’ phobia stands suarely in the way of a beautiful future together Now he has to decide whether he’s going to let his fear or his heart take the leadAnd will Nick stay grounded while he decides Overall I liked the story but I found the main characters under developed and the relationship seemed forced The way the author used electrical and flying metaphors respective to their professions seemed clever at first but uickly became so overdone as to be aggravating and annoying I think it is one of the main reasons why the characters lacked depth they were only able to describe their experiences in terms of their jobs which made them appear one dimensional There was so much else going on with the family dynamics and grief sub plots and all this could have been used to inform the characters experiences but even these topics were explored with electrical and flying metaphors so much that their gravity was reducedI think the plot had a lot of potential but it felt rushed and I got the impression that the author was interested in meeting a deadline than providing a uality read A very moving novel Daniel de Lorne’s The Love Left Behind will tug at your heartstrings Yes it’s a romance but Mr de Lorne delves deep into aspects of life love and relationships to which most of us can relate This is an emotional story and I’ll admit to some tears along the way so grab a tissue settle back and enjoyBoth of the characters in The Love Left Behind are coping with the death of a loved one Moving forward is a slow and painful journey and their new affair is a welcome diversion Unfortunately they can’t keep their underlying issues buried for long If they want to build a lasting relationship both men need to face up to the past and find some closureLosing his beloved mother to cancer was devastating for Nick Honoring her memory by travelling to each of the fifty countries she’d long to see Nick is on the final leg of his bittersweet journey Flying to her birthplace in Greece is the perfect ending and having his boyfriend join him would be a wonderful way to start a new phase in his lifeThe tragic death of Lyall’s brother in an airplane crash has left him with an intense fear of flying The anxiety he feels when even considering getting on a plane is enough to make him physically ill It’s going to take some hard work to overcome his phobia but the thought of accompanying Nick in his travels is the motivation he needs to get startedBoth Lyall and Nick have a ways to go before they can truly come together as a couple Incorporating honest communication and a bit of empathy into their relationship isn’t easy but by shifting their perspectives their future looks bright Daniel de Lorne does a marvelous job expressing emotion through his writing Skillfully inserting terms and phrases which pertain to each man’s career throughout the story it’s clear he enjoys playing with words From beautifully written passages to clever metaphors reading The Love Left Behind is a very enjoyable experience 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 toI liked the different ways they dealt with losses from the past even when they are holding them back from their futureI liked the way they brought out the best in each other when they are at their worstI 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 senseI know I know I am contradicting myself here This book just had me all over the place with thingsI loved the Australian setting yay Aussies for me to read and this was my first Daniel De Lorne read I will be going back to read in the future 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 think would be the only way to pull off the hackneyed pilot falls in love with a guy who is afraid to fly storyline Picked this up on a whim and kinda regretted it tbh Not terrible so two stars but definitely not my thing
