Don't worry, it is common for young limes and other citrus to lose their flowers during the first few years. When they mature, they will start setting fruit, but they will still naturally lose the majority of their flowers (they produce more than they need).

Also, if you're growing indoors or if there are few pollinators in your area, you may need to hand-pollinate to increase yield:
