Without You by Brooklyn Skye
Release Date: 10/22/13

Summary from Goodreads

*A novella to the best-selling New Adult novel STRIPPED*

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.

Without You is the followup to Stripped. (You can read my review of Stripped here.) It picks up where Stripped left off and the amazingly wonderful thing about it? This is Torrin's POV!

The relationship between Torrin and Quinn has progressed and they seem strong. But Torrin is wrestling with a decision - one that might have devastating repercussions for their fledgling relationship. It was very enlightening being inside Torrin's head. He is a guy and guys approach problem-solving in a completely different way than girls. Torrin seemed able to help solve others' problems - namely Quinn's - but when it came to himself, he was at a loss. I was surprised at the way he went about at first and was happy when he realized it was the wrong way. As for Quinn, she tried to slip back into old habits when dealing with something difficult, but Torrin made her confront it head-on.

I delighted in seeing Torrin and Quinn once again struggling with very realistic issues and decisions. Their strengths and vulnerabilities were brought to light again as they attempt to navigate this decision -- and figure out a way to deal with the possible ramifications. I was thrilled with the way Torrin and Quinn matured as well as with the direction their lives were headed.

Without You is the perfect 'period' at the end of this portion of Torrin and Quinn's story. One that made me believe in all those endless possibilities lying ahead for them.

**I received an eARC of the book, as part of the tour, in exchange for an honest review.
