LOVE LEFT BEHIND by S.H. KoleeMY HEART LOVES A HAPPY ENDING!!

heartheartheart

This is the story of Emma and Jackson. Emma leaves her small town after she breaks up with her live-in boyfriend to reinvent herself in New York City. Emma meets Jackson – waiter and want-a-be actor on her very first day in NYC. The attraction is immediate and undeniable. The story covers love, first loves, friendship, jealousy and heartbreak. The first half of this book reads easy and quick, and I really like it – A LOT!! The second half – which takes place FIVE years later is WAY TOO LONG and is more than frustrating! I RARELY suggest this idea – but this story COULD HAVE BEEN TWO BOOKS. However, I will say I LOVED the ending – it was a unique happy ending:) I was blown away how a couple who has EVERYTHING going for them, can be torn apart so easily because they fail to COMMUNICATE.  It was a little difficult to care a lot about these characters, and I had a difficult time relating to them. The plot starts off well, but takes so many – too many turns. I felt like I had whiplash when I finished the book!!The story lacks a secondary cast that always brings so much to the principal characters. It’s hard to understand characters without the development of other relationships. Much of their life together is dialogue driven – which I love!! The love scenes are HOT, and the cover is even HOTTER!!! The cover is one of my top five favorites covers!
