This 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 more destructive than Jenna’s selfishness.
The story links all the characters and story-lines 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.

Without you is a really nice contemporary romance and is definitely an easy, quick read for a quiet weekend. I'd say it pretty similar to the type of story written by Nicholas Sparks. Lindsay Detwiler is a very talented writer.

Without You is mainly set with Jenna in New York and with Vi in a small town (I think it's a small town) coffee shop. Both settings relate well to their respective characters - Jenny's high flying business trip and Vi's own little coffee shop. So this also relates well to Camden's relationship to both women. He meets Vi when he is lonely and doesn't know if his marriage will survive. He needed somewhere to go really.

I quite liked the characters, although they aren't too rememberable. Camden appears to be the nice, kind, good looking male character who doesn't know what has gone wrong with his marriage. He's happy with the quiet life. Because of this, I liked Jenna the least. Camden would give her anything and she practically threw their relationship away. But, I did start to like her more as the story progressed.

I really liked Vi. She tries not to let anything get her down. But she still struggles with heartbreak and her emotions and it is definitely something everyone can relate to. Similarly, she gets her hopes up. I do find Vi a very strong person as she powers through to make sure her business is a success. She is someone anyone would want to be like.

Without You is told via the alternating perspectives of Jenna and Vi during a period of 6 weeks whilst Jenna I'd in New York. This shows us the differing and confusing feelings of both women who are in essence looking for the same thing. It also shows just how quickly feelings can change or build up.

I was given this book for an honest review, after having read Lindsay's first novel Voice of Innocence, I really was looking forward to this book and it didn't let me down. It was brilliant, I loved the fact there are two main characters Vi and Jenna and they both have ways as Jenna is a business woman and Vi owns a coffee shop. I felt myself drawn more to Vi than Jenna as I could see myself in her a bit. This story is about two women who are looking for the same thing but have different ways of getting what they want.

Wow this was a really good read.

The writing was excellent,I felt fully invested in the story.

The characters are not always likeable,they like real persons have doubts and act stupidly sometimes but fortunately they understand their mistakes and they choose to fight for their happiness before it is too late.

This shows us the differing and confusing feelings of both women who are in essence looking for the same thing. It also shows just how quickly feelings can change or build up. Lindsay Detwiler writes both women so well and their characters are completely believable.

I felt the story told was somewhat predictable, but there were a couple of twists that I really didn't expect. It didn't end the way I thought it would either. The plot also had quite a nice pace to it. As it covered six weeks, you don't see every single day, just the important bits. I really liked this, as feelings didn't just suddenly disappear or reappear and everything builds up gradually.

I did like the end. Everything is tied up and everyone is happy. I do feel that it may have been a bit of an easy-out. I was surprised at the appearance of a certain character right at the end.

I would definitely recommend Without You to fans of Contemporary Romance. It is your "after-the-happily-ever-after" type story and portrays that even in the happiest marriage; it won't stay as happy for long. There has to be give and take on both parts.

I will definitely be looking out for more by Lindsay Detwiler in the future.

HASH(0x9343fe7c) out of 5 stars This book is a great weekend or vacation read 6 Dec. 2015
By Lori Keagy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a great weekend or vacation read. Lindsay Detwiler's descriptive writing will have you deeply connected to all four characters. The characters make you believe in real love in a marriage as well as the complications that can arise.

Sometimes it takes almost losing the love of your life to realize what you truly have. Throughout this book you'll be wondering if Camden will go back to his somewhat boring stable life with Jenna or move onto a more extreme and exciting new life with Violet. You'll be surprised with the outcome of this book.

I must say being an extreme animal love my favorites in this book are Henry, the 150lb mastiff, and Bob the 18lb beautiful black cat.

Love, Love, Love this book. Hope for many more.

HASH(0x93441018) out of 5 stars Relatable Story about Relationships 30 Nov. 2015
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed the author'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.

HASH(0x934412c4) out of 5 stars Though I did like it and I could relate to it at points 29 Dec. 2015
By Casia P. Courtier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I recieved a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

Without You is the second book from Detwiler that I have read. Though I did like it and I could relate to it at points, I liked the first book better. It was more because this one hit home with me.

I've stopped airing out my laundry on my blog a while ago, but I can definitely relate to Jenna's feelings of stagnation. It's been something that I personally have had a problem with and I'm sure other married couples have gone through it. I found my own way of finding a niche for me (and am still working on it), but I am glad I never did what happened in Jenna's life.

It was realistic, worrying, and showed me a life that could have happened if I went the route Jenna did. I instead found hobbies and took enjoyment in some domestic work (baking and ironing are favorites. I'm beginning to like cleaning as well). However, the emotions Jenna went through were worries of my own as well. Funny thing, I've been married for almost five years now (same amount of time as Jenna and Camden).

Violet's storyline was more enjoyable for me because it was an escape. I was able to live her life without the echoing of previous worries. Violet was sweet, caring, and had a lot going for her. I was happy to see her ending.

From the blurb, I'm sure you can figure out what happens, but I was surprised at how everyone ended up. I wasn't expecting the ending Detwiler had. I was expecting something open ended like her first book or something bittersweet.

All in all, it was an easy book to get into and I did like the characters. I find it interesting that the animals are named after Detwiler's own pets. It's just a fun tidbit that makes me smile. This is a nice contemporary work that pulls on the strings and may invoke your own worries in wherever you are in relationships.
HASH(0x9344130c) out of 5 stars The Ugly Truth about Relationships in the most beautiful way. 23 Dec. 2015
By Tina The Bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Before I even start this review, can we please talk about this cover? I mean look at it! It's absolutely beautiful and I seriously cannot wait for the day that I can both of Lindsay Detweiler's books on my shelves.

There is something beautiful, haunting, gut wrenching and truthful about the way Lindsay writes. It is one of the many reasons I wanted to read this book; I loved Voice of Innocence, which I'm sure you have figured out if you've seen my blog. I rave about it any chance I get. So to say that I was absolutely looking forward Without You was an understatement. I knew that her second book would be just as amazing as her first and I was right.

Without You is a story of four people, Jenna, Violet, Camden and Liam. Jenna and Camden have been together for a while and were once madly in love and passionate but suddenly the honeymoon staged kicked in and things got well comfortable. It leaves Jenna wondering if there is something more out there. Violet and Liam were madly in love but dreams and different career goals were a deciding factor. One that left the other wondering if they should stay together and risk feeling resentment towards the other for never pursuing those dreams. To be honest, it was an honest portrayal of a relationship.

Lindsay honestly showed us what a real relationship looks like and not the kind we are so use to seeing with the sunshine and butterflies and petty fights over misunderstandings. This was the real deal. This was what an honest and real relationship. It pretty ugly and it was pretty hurtful and sometimes hard to understand but it was real.

What interested me the most of the story was how these four people were connected. I couldn't wait to see how these characters were going to be connected and how this was going to play out. I was really curious and I kept turning the page trying to find out what was going on.

In the end, I was pretty content with how the story played out. I thought it was realistic and that I loved most. There were some things I would have liked for example: Liam and Camden's point of view of the story. I kind of wanted more of Liam and Violet's relationship. But those are just minor details in the story. Everything else I enjoyed. The writing was good.

Should you read this? Yes! A million times yes.
