Without You by Brooklyn Skye - Book Tour, Book Review, Giveaway



She was broken when I met her, shattered from the death of her sister and running from love. Not to sound like an egotistical douche or anything, but I fixed her. Put her back together, filled in the cracks, and made her whole. A true fairytale in her eyes.

But now real life is getting in the way: school, jobs, and the unexpected opportunity to travel the world under a legendary photographer. This internship will open doors not even my father’s influence could. It’s something I’ve been waiting all my life for. But so is Quinn, and accepting this internship will mean leaving her.

And breaking her all over again.

MY REVIEW -
     We have meet Torrin and Quinn in Stripped and they have lived happily ever after – or I’d like to think so, until Without You. 
      Without You is their story – made emotional, sexier, and more REAL. Because real love story doesn’t end when boy finally gets the girl, and girl finally loves the boy – there are problems that fate throws in your way that will test the strength and foundation of a relationship. Just how strong theirs might be? Will it survive distance? Time? Secrets?
 
 
     So what happens to the two??
 
 
     Torrin has always been a fixer – he fixed Quinn, fell in love with her, and now his guilt is eating him because a letter has arrived for him to intern with a world-renowned photographer. Meaning? He’s going to be away from Quinn for five months, and he wasn’t sure if he’s just ready to do that or if the relationship would withstand that much? So much for the fairytale ending, huh?
 
 
     Quinn, on the other hand, wanted to have her own job – her PAST job with Hunter that involves – yes, modeling naked in front of art students. No way would Torrin allow it – them seeing what belongs to him. His father already told Quinn that he’d be paying for her college expenses, but Quinn wouldn’t want to be a charity case.
  
 
     Reality bites, complication hits, secrets divulged – then what??? There are times when I wished Torrin would have just told her, or she would have just told Torrin. The secret to a successful relationship is trust and honesty - how will they survive if they can't do the basics? I understand Torrin's dilemma, but he should give Quinn more credit than that - she had already survived the worse. I like Quinn in this novel - although she might made some pretty bad decisions, but one thing is for sure - she's not the kind of girl who would stop him from reaching for his dreams.
 
 
     What I love so much about this novel (besides Torrin’s POV) is that it’s short – but filled with emotions that will leave your heart aching, wondering, hoping, and yes, a little relief in the end (thank goodness!). I always loved a short novel, but with enough emotion that will keep me hooked until I reached the final page. If you loved Stripped just as much as I did, you will love this more.
