I'm not sure what I was expecting with this book, but it was nothing like what I thought it would be... it was SO MUCH MORE! The complexity and layers that Jewel built with these characters over the course of the story was brilliant. I totally felt like I was living and growing right along with them through the years. Don't let the synopsis fool you, this is a book about star crossed, fated love. A love at first sight that must overcome multiple challenges, obstacles and heartbreaks to be fully realized. I laughed out loud, I sobbed big ugly tears, I swooned, I wanted to smack some sense into them and I prayed for their peace. Such a beautifully written story. I HIGHLY recommend this one!

Our Favorite Quotes

Vulnerability takes more strength than anything else in life. You have to be willing to feel absolutely every emotion. Vulnerability is the sharpest knife, the longest marathon, the highest mountain.

So this is what it feels like to understand that the world is not a place or destination. It's a moment. When we touch, it's the world. It's life.

The world is big, but our time here is small and precious. Life is meant to be lived, not solved. And love... well, it's like a white t-shirt with french fries and ketchup. It's messy, but worth the risk.

From The Publisher


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.


I'm a mom of 2 rad AF adults, 1 fresh baby and a super cute fur babe. Hospital administration by day, yoga instructor by night, travel junkie, shoe addict, foodie and avid reader in all the spaces in-between. I got my love of books from my mama and honestly can’t remember a time in my life where reading wasn’t a daily priority. I’m a sappy hopeless romantic who’s a sucker for 2nd chances, mature characters, and serendipitous connections. In an ideal world, you can find me on the beach with an icy cold adult libation in one hand and my Kindle in the other.
