A Place Without You

Author: Jewel E. Ann


Romance To Last A Life Time, Angsty, Love Story, Contemporary



She is his student.

Sometimes … fate is forbidden.

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.

Life is not a destination or a journey.

Some things are more than temporary.

Forbidden can never be ignored.

But if she returns for him, will he still be hers?

My Review:



A place without you is a love story, but one that’s filled with pain and heartache along the way. It’s told from a dual POV and that’s always a plus for me.

Bodhi & Henna’s connection was instant, even from they’re first chance encounter Henna knew they were destined to be together. NOTHING ABOUT HENNA AND BODHI WAS TEMPORARY! Bodhi, although lovable (who has now become one of my very favorite book boyfriends) he has let his guilt over a tragic accident in the past run his entire adult life. But there’s just something about Henna that no matter how hard he tries, he just can’t walk away from…right or wrong. Trust me when I tell you, this story broke me down, just to build me back up again! You will cry, you will laugh, but most of all….you will love this story.

Jewel is a free-spirited romance junkie with a quirky sense of humor.

With 10 years of flossing lectures under her belt, she took early retirement from her dental hygiene career to stay home with her three awesome boys and manage the family business.

After her best friend of nearly 30 years suggested a few books from the Contemporary Romance genre, Jewel was hooked. Devouring two and three books a week but still craving more, she decided to practice sustainable reading, AKA writing.

When she’s not donning her cape and saving the planet one tree at a time, she enjoys yoga with friends, good food with family, rock climbing with her kids, watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, and of course…heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, panty-scorching novels.
