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.

Liv is a successful business woman. But she's not really happy with that life.
So against the advice of her therapist and her parents - she decides to leave her corporate life for a while, and rents a beach house in a little spanish town near Barcelona.
To do what? She's not really find herself? To find happiness? To find love? To just chill and relax? She doesn't really know, but she will probably notice it, once it happens.

Once there she very soon finds good friends at the local coffee-shop.
And she finds HIM.
Well, she didn't really find him, she accidentally flashed him, while standing on her terrace one day.
Then she saw him again at the café and again at a club... she still doesn't know his name, just that he's the most gorgeous man she's ever seen.

And he keeps flirting with her... this perfect man, flirting with this chubby, slightly older woman!
But she's not in spain for a one-night-stand...or is she??
But definitely not for something more, right?
And pffff, as if this gorgeous and young GQ-Calvin-Klein-Latino-Abercrombie-Model would be interested in anything long-term...with her!

But, what if?????

What will happen to Liv?
Will she give up her soul-searching for a maybe-happy-after with a strange guy?
What about her best friend Kai back home and their pact to get married at 35 should they both still be single?
Will she stay in Spain or go back 'home'?
But where is home??
Will there be a horrible Cliffhanger?

Nope - I'm not telling you ☺

Ok - I can tell you that there won't be a Cliffhanger!! It's a stand-alone Romance!!!


A new Sigal Ehrlich book??????

I've loved Sigal's books ever since I read the Stark series!!!
And even though this one was completely different, it was still really amazing!

I loved every second of it.
I might not have loved every single second of Liv - because she's a bit too weird for me. Well, not really weird - she's really unhappy with her life. There are all her mom's unreachable expectations and her unhappiness with her figure and lots of stuff...she has to understand that she has to deal with everything in her life FOR HERSELF - not because of her mom, or a guy or whatever.
And it takes her this whole book to finally get - or not - who knows ☺ I'm not telling you!!!! ☺

I LOOOOooOooOOVED our sexy Spaniard!!! Ugh!!!

He's young, yes, but he's a businessman and really responsible and really handsome and nice and hot and sexy and kind and gorgeous and did I mention HOT AS HELL???? ☺

Plus - he knows what Liv needs - in every aspect ... she's the only one fighting with everything... but she'll get there one day ☺ Probably ☺

I love a good, sexy romance...and this one was just perfect.
Lots of sexy gorgeousness in the form of our nameless Spaniard (He's not nameless of course - but it takes Liv a while to find out his name - so I'm not telling you either!) ...

LOTS and LOOOTS of sexy & erotic & romantic scenes...

and there were even some scenes that made me and Dawson cry!!! ☺


There were so many great moments ... it's not your usual sexy romance where a girl meets a boy and they fall in love and bam! - misunderstanding - and make-up-sex and HEA!
It's ... hm - more grown up I think... more mature. But don't let me confuse you now - it's not that Liv is over 50 or something ☺ She's only 32 ☺☺☺ It's just that she's in a bit of a midlife crisis...that's why it feels a bit more mature than all those other romances out there!
Just try it - give it a chance - you'll sooo fall in love with peeeeep-the-sexy-Spaniard ☺

Oh - one think that confused me a bit - but don't worry - I'm very easily confused.
Why is the cover-model sitting there playing the piano? That is soo not in the book? ☺ I'd rather have that sexy spanish guy on the cover - preferably without a stitch of clothing covering his amazing body!☺☺☺

LEAVING ME BEHIND was an amazingly beautiful & sexy & funny - 'makes-you-think' Romance!
About a girl trying to find meaning in her life again - and she might just find it in Spain with a sexy-as-hell piece of gorgeousness! ☺ GO AND BUY THE BOOK!!!! You don't want to miss it!

And now Sigal - hurry with your next book - I can't wait to see what the next one will be about!!!



By teen age, Sigal already lived in three different continents where she had the luck 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…

When she is not hiding in her office, writing, she enjoys music, reading and taking care of her little clan.

With a great believe in "don’t wait for things to happen - make them happen," she enjoys anything exciting life has to offer.
