Book Review – A Place Without You by Jewel E. Ann

Hey lovely readers!

Here’s a book review for you!

43430429._SY475_“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?”

I’m not sure where I even heard about this book. But I saw the cover and thought, “Hot boy? I’m in!” Here I was thinking it’d be a light read. But omg I fell so hard into this one. It’s a beautiful and tragic love story and it now owns my heart. A piece of my heart now resides within the pages of this story.

Henna and Bodhi meet by chance at Coachella and within a few hours are crazy about each other. I absolutely loved this, because I met a boy at Coachella once and well let’s just say this part of the story brought back some amazing memories. Now I don’t want to spoil anything, but these two go their separate ways and months later they manage to find each other again. What follows is a love story shrouded in tragedy. Henna and Bodhi both have tragic histories and carry so much guilt around. They want desperately to be together, but Bodhi’s family situation and his father’s cancer make that almost impossible.

They both make difficult choices, they are both self sacrificing, they are pulled apart and brought back together. But then Henna makes a brave and devastating decision that almost assures she’ll lose Bodhi forever. This choice is what got me. It’s what makes this book so beautiful and powerful and tragic and special. Because I understand this choice and I understand why she did it. But I also understand how hard it can be to let go of someone you love even when they’re ready to go. I so wish I could explain what happens but that would absolutely spoil the book and I don’t want to do that.

All I can say is that this book is lovely. It shows just how deep love can go, how cruel fate can be, and how one person can truly change your life. Henna and Bodhi’s love is never easy, but it is beautiful. And in the end, what they’re willing to sacrifice for one another proves just how much they belong together. Because true love, real love is the kind that never tears you down. This book deserves all of your love, so please go read it right now.

Thanks for reading guys! Talk to you soon! ❤ Adrianna
