MJ's Review of Without You

I enjoyed author Lindsay Detwiler's authentic story-telling voice. Her realistic portrayal of a marriage gone stale was told in a way that any married woman would likely relate to.

The story is told from the point of view of two women who are seemingly unconnected. What they have in common is steeping in the dramatic turmoil of trying to figure out what's not working in their love lives.

I wasn't sure how Cam, Jenna, Violet and Liam's worlds would collide so the curiosity about that kept me turning pages. There were certainly some interesting plot surprises that I didn't see coming.

Cam was the character I liked the most and wanted a good outcome for. I also appreciated the comic relief provided by Henry, his wiley mastiff. There were a few wince-worthy moments where I wanted to reprimand the women for making bad choices. But I was relieved that there was a happy resolution for the characters.

Armed with a sharp tongue, Sydney works to keep Jason at bay…
In a moment of weakness, Sydney lets her guard down and confides in Jason, realizing he’s more than just a hot guy—he’s also a friend. And when Sydney’s need for a summer boy results in her falling into bed with Jason, despite her better judgment, she run…
