Connect on TwitterThis is a story about what happens after the happy ever after Five years down the line are you still in love Is there still heart stopping romance, or are you both just going through the motions This is the situation Jenna finds herself in and even though Camden is still the man of her dreams, isn t he The magic is gone, or too difficult to find.Jenna is a flawed character but she comes across as realistic because of this Maybe she blames Camden too easily, for all their problems but if we re honest isn t that what we do It s easier to find fault with our partner, than to look inwards, for the cause of our emotional problems.Camden loves his wife and she should know this, right He shouldn t have to tell her, or show her, it s a given It s not until Jenna leaves on a business trip and stays away, he wakes up and realises his perfect marriage, is on the rocks The story portrays the couple s emotions sensitively, the realism is undeniable but sometimes the pacing is a little slow.Vi s story, adds an interesting dynamic to this tale of marital discord She is well meaning and therefore instantly likeable However her need to find the man of her dreams may prove to be destructive than Jenna s selfishness The story links all the characters and storylines together in a believable way and there are some nice plot twists.Overall I enjoyed this story and the ending, although a little rushed after the earlier slower pacing, is romantic and satisfying I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.Lindsay Detwiler I had to read this I just had to read this and it was heartbreaking to me Jenna and Camden are basically the hero and heroine Violet s the wannabe OW husband went to find himself in Japan or something like that Violet owned a coffee shop down the street from where they live Heroine leaves town to find herself or something She was having doubts about their marriage It had gotten stale I guess like all marriages do and it was just hard to like her at first She grew on me after a while But she went away and she found she didn t want to move on I was afraid she was going to so something wrong on one of her bar nights but she didn t and I was glad She is gone for six weeks approximately In the meantime Vi, the skank barista, meets Camden and they start hanging out She knows he s married but they keep doing stuff together Watching movies, dinners, talks, etc She knows he still loves his wife but she falls in love with him One night she leans over and kisses him and he freaks out and runs out of her apartment and is sorry I was glad he did that But then when he is telling her they can only be friends a day or two later, he says he felt the electricity too and that really bummed me out He is giving her flowers and hugging her and his wife who found out she is pregnant is back and sees them through the window She freaks out and leaves It was so sad Even after this the evil skank Vi is still hoping that she would get her love story ending with Camden I was so pissed at her Leave married men alone Just no Camden gets in an accident, Vi is at the hospital with someone else and they bring him in Its really bad and the wife shows up She sees the skanky Vi, and gets pissed real pissed She screams at her and Vi then says nothing happened and it s not too late for you I had a girl tell me that once and she lied, I believed her and that was heartbreaking and so now of course so I don t ever believe that crap because OW who mess with taken men are skanks and gross and I am digressing Bitter party of one Okay back to the story, Camden does recover and he really absolutely loves Jenna Vi, the skanky home wrecking idiot, has decided she loves Camden too and she is going to see if they still have a chance and make sure he s okay Once there she sees Jenna and Cam together through a window and he is looking at Jenna with so much love in his eyes and she knows it is a lost cause At least for now I really didn t like that skank for some reason She goes home, and guess who s waiting, Liam, the true love of her life and he was miserable without her and he wants her back Then at the end, they are all friends and Vi is pregnant with Liams baby and just HELL NO You don t be nice to a skank who wanted your man no matter what, hell no never I was so disappointed.I kind of wish I hadn t read it because it hurt my heart and I hate books like this No he didn t sleep with Vi but what the hell was he thinking hanging out like that with her Yes the wife had gone to think over the relationship but they weren t legally separated or anything I just thought it was tacky I was happy he pulled away in horror when the skankity skank kissed him but then he said he felt electricity and that just pissed me off Again there was no sex and only one short kiss but I still want to stab him through the heart and hide skanky skank Vi s body where no one would ever find it I still gave it three stars and I can t remember why I keep vacillating between two and three only because I didn t like Vi Did I mention she was a skank and I hate that he liked the kiss I know, I know I have serious, serious issues I am on medication though so don t be afraid. Why can t I just love what I have So what if things aren t perfectI think it s just life It got the better of us Lindsay Detwiler is a new Author to us and we were so intrigued by the synopsis to Without You that we jumped in eagerly, it sounded so different and emotionally charged From what we understood this was a story about two couples whose paths cross when both relationships are in the danger territory people fall into ruts, couples drift apart, and temptations threaten to overthrow the power of marriage It sounds so simple, but it isn t anything of the sort How do you reconnect with yourself when it feels like all of the pieces are misplaced, scattered by experience, sorrow, and time We identified with many aspects covered in Without You, but we have to be honest and say that we were quite surprised at times too Whilst beautifully written we found it quite slow for the majority of the story only to feel rushed toward the end We felt that after such a large proportion of time being spent on setting the scene and warring with emotions and justifications for what was to come it was over without us experiencing the afters Yes, it had us riveted and we were desperate to see how it would all end up we just would have loved We, victims of our own senseless carelessness and bad luck, are forced to trudge through life without the missing item, big or small We are, as the old saying goes, sometimes unaware of the value of the particular thing until it s gone Now, whilst in some respects this is primarily Jenna s story, we have to say she was our least favourite character in this book, in fact, we disliked her immensely Now, don t get us wrong we understand where she was coming from in many respects However, overall we just found her a petulant spoilt princess who thought the grass was greener and wanted her cake and eat it too There was not emotional connection there sadly Maybe distance will help us rekindle the passion, the love we had not long ago If nothing else, maybe a change of scenery, a break from my humdrum routine is what I need Her behaviour, reasoning s and not my fault attitude was immature and disproportionate to the years married and her age It felt all wrong, especially after a very emotionally distressing event which Jenna appears to treat as an inconvenience she never convinced us of her heartfelt love and compassion We think, if these characters had been older with actual real problems it would have been a whole different story, maybe Thus, sadly Jenna s the reason we just didn t love this book no matter how hard I try to focus on other things, he s always invading my thoughts He s always invading my thoughts He s always the whisper in my heart, the voice incessantly resonating in my head, He s the roadblock in my future, whether I want to admit it or not He s the constant what if, the constant why not, the constant regret ViNow, Violet we fell in love with her and actually she was the complete opposite of Jenna She came across mature and took responsibility for her actions In many ways the two couples were a mirror image and showed two different perspectives We didn t really get to know Liam really as he didn t feature throughout the story but we understood their journey Ray Violet s best mate was a confusing part of their story which was never really resolved We did love the relationship he had with Vi, though ..as much as I love you, I can t ask you to give up your dreams to let me follow mine Don t you see It s not fair to either of usWe can t forget to mention Camden, the hero in this story The man who loved with his whole heart and never faltered Talk about throwing someone who can t swim in at the deep end, poor bloke We understand parts of why Jenna struggled in her marriage to Cam however give the man a chance to understand your issues and try and work through them We couldn t blame him for his confusion, despair and sudden isolation in what is a partnership.So, whilst we didn t love this story, we did enjoyed it and liked how different it felt with a new and varying perspective We will definitely look out for from this Author.Come say hi and
