REVIEW – A PLACE WITHOUT YOU by Jewel E. Ann

SYNOPSIS

The Law of Henna and Bodhi:
When love breaks, fall inward, fall together, and fall hard. Then let time pick up the pieces.

Everything feels temporary when you’ve experienced tragedy—until Henna Lane meets Bodhi at a music festival.

Young and spontaneous, they have a lust for seizing the moment, falling hard and fast.

When Bodhi is forced to leave without a goodbye, Henna thinks she’ll never get over him. But then she meets Mr. Malone, her sexy, new guidance counselor.

They are reckless.
They are forbidden.

When their secret is discovered, Henna has to choose between finishing school—banned from seeing Mr. Malone—or dropping out to follow her nomad dreams.

Henna chooses her dreams.

Over time, she learns that life is not a destination or a journey, some things are more than temporary, and the forbidden can never be ignored. But if she returns for him, will he still be hers?

A Place Without You is an emotional story of young love, shattered dreams, and impossible decisions.

 

 

 

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****FIVE+++++++++ STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

”Bodhi paints me with his emotions, plays me with his body, takes what’s his, and gives me everything in return.”

“I love this girl with more love that I thought I had left in my heart. Henna takes everything that’s good in my life and multiplies it.”

“Love is not a rational emotion. It jumps out of planes and dives off cliffs. It leaves a permanent mark on everything it touches. I can do the right thing or I can love you, but I can’t do both.”

 

 

Jewel E. Ann is one of the greats! Her stories always transport me to my happy place. The characters she creates leave an indelible mark on my heart. I never know exactly what I’m going to get from her stories, but one thing I do know is that she is going to take me down a wild journey filled with crazy love and painful angst. This is the woman that drove me to drink during one of her stories but let me tell you, I will NEVER forget how amazing that book was and it drove me to send her a personal message, just thanking her for writing it. She is just that extraordinary! If you’ve never read any of her books, you need to make it one of your New Year’s resolutions. Get ready to be swept away by Bodhi and Henna’s passionate all-consuming romance!!

 

I knew early on this book was going to be something extraordinary. Bodhi and Henna are both beautiful characters and their love for each other burns something fierce but they each have endured great tragedy and loss which places huge obstacles in their paths and turns their relationship into the ”forbidden”.

 

Bodhi and Henna meet at Coachella and spend an incredible weekend together. The chemistry between them ignites fast and furious. While they think at first that they’re only meant to be in each other’s lives for a brief moment in time, it becomes clear within a few hours that something epic is happening before their eyes and they’d give anything to not have to part ways, life is often unfair and even though they are two pieces of a puzzle that fit perfectly together their timing is all wrong.

 

They’ll eventually be reunited after their memorable weekend at Coachella and what should be a happy twist of fate, ends up being a painful and heartbreaking reminder as to why they can’t ever live their happily ever after.

 

Brace yourself for the ugly cry and to have your heart twisted due to some painful angst but all I can say is that this story is SOOOOOOO worth the torture because it is simply AMAZEBALLS!!

 

 

Here are my overall ratings:

 

Hero: 5+++++++

Heroine: 4.5

Plot: 5+++++++

Angst: 5

Steam: 5

Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5+++++++

 

A PLACE WITHOUT YOU is currently available. I predict that this is going to be on a lot of reader’s ”Best of 2019” shelves.

*****Dee’s Review*****

FIVE +++ Bodhi And Henna Stars*****

Two souls destined to meet in the desert, surrounded by music, covered in sweat, and with no other choice but to fall in love, forever and always.

 

 

Both Bodhi and Henna carry pain from their pasts. Different pains, and different coping mechanisms but together they will help each other heal.

From the moment Henna got into the Uber taxi that unbeknownst to her was sharing with the most beautiful man she had ever seen, she felt it in her soul that he was going to change her life forever. She and Bodhi shared a magical afternoon surrounded by people, all there for the music, but these two were in a world of their own.

Fries, ketchup, and a magnificent kiss made their time together utterly unforgettable, and no matter the time or the distance, their love was born unbreakable from the start.

 

 

Physical pain, addiction, death, distance, taboo, and time, are some of the things that will try to come between Bodhi and Henna. But their love is wild, organic, simply made to be, and no matter if they are together or alone, near or far, even with other people, no place exists without the other.

This book is a complete story. In true Jewel E. Ann fashion, she won’t leave one emotion untouched. You will feel it all. Every single character is so beautiful and completely relatable. Who hasn’t felt guilt, shame, been crazy in love, frustrated for what they wish it could be but isn’t? Reading this book is like reading a little piece of your own heart. You’ll know it, and you’ll feel it, once you emerge yourself in the pages of A Place Without You
