BLOG TOUR REVIEW & GIVEAWAY - What You Left Behind (Left Behind #1, Thirty-Eight #3) by Len Webster

WYLB tour banner

Title: What You Behind (Left Behind, #1)
Author: Len Webster
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 6, 2015


No amount of white sand or distance could bury their past.

Some things are just never meant to be forgotten.

When Julian Moors returned from Thailand he left behind all his belongings, his father and only brother in Melbourne and moved to Sydney. One girl shattered his world and left him with more questions than answers.

Behind the persona, Stevie Appleton tries to outrun her past. Nightmares and memories have started to collide, putting her future and her heart at risk. No one can know the secrets she tries to keep locked away, even if it means betraying the people she loves the most.

Everyone has a story but not everyone has a past quite like Stevie and Julian. 

When they meet years later, don't expect a happy ending. The past holds skeletons and not even these skeletons can be buried.

This book could possibly be read as a standalone, but to truly understand it you should What We'll Leave Behind, as that tells the story of Stevie and Julian's week together in Thailand four years earlier. You're left wondering what's going to happen with this couple at the end of that book, and luckily we get the answers with this story.

As it happens with just about every story, at least one main character has something that happened in their past that has shaped them into the person we meet and get to know in whatever book they are starring in, and this one is no exception. But that doesn't mean that Stevie is weak because she's not, she's just doing what she can to try and outrun her past, but as we know that won't last forever. But lucky for her (and us), now that she and Julian are back in the same orbit, he's going to do whatever it takes to prove to her that she is his forever. 

Another well-written story from Len Webster, I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

“Blondie, wake up for a second,” Julian whispered in her ear.
Stephanie groaned and shrugged away from his touch.

“Could you maybe put your erection away?”

He peeked over to see her eyes still closed and her cheek rested on the back of her hand. Julian shook her once again. “You’re naked. Are you always this distracting in the morning? I’d like to wake up just once without a hard-on.”

“Julian, I’m going to give you something for your ego.” She pulled the blanket higher, covering her perfect breasts.

Her breasts are magic.

Perfect rack.

Ducking down, he pressed his lips against the smoothness of her neck. “My ego is ready.”

“I bet it is.” Stephanie took a deep breath. “You are annoyingly good at sex. Go to work and let me somehow deal with the fact that I like having sex with you. Okay?”

Julian had smiled against her skin before he quickly sat up.

“Blondie, Blondie, Blondie!” he honeyed while he shook her with more force.

Stephanie groaned before she finally sat up and rubbed her eyes. Pissed off Stephanie Appleton was a sight. So was just woken and admitted he was a satisfying lover Stephanie Appleton. She was an all-round vision. “WHAT?

Julian formed a fist and held it towards her, waiting. She glanced down at it and frowned. Her adorable frown distracted him from the fact that her breasts greeted him this morning.

“Put it there.” He lifted his fist a little higher.

Stephanie’s eyebrows furrowed. “You want me to bump fists with you? Why?”

The smirk on his face had caused her to roll his eyes at him. “You said I’m good at sex. I like to believe I’m awesome at it, but we’ll save that kind of correction for later. You said you also like having sex with me. My ego loves that very much. And for your ego, I’m gonna tell ya that you are ridiculously good in bed. We have to bump fists for great teamwork. I come. You come. We come. What a lovely partnership we have going.”

“Oh, my God! I am never having sex with you again!”

He tilted his chin up at her and then cocked a brow. “What an empty threat. Seriously, put it there. Let’s celebrate what an awesome pair we are.”

Stephanie playfully pushed at his shoulder and got off the bed. “You’re an idiot. I am not bumping fists with you for that. I’m going to find a way to dent that damn ego of yours. You’re going to slip up sometime, Moors. You can’t be that great in bed all the time.”
