Summary from Goodreads:
*A novella to the best-selling New Adult novel STRIPPED*
I’m the knight on the white horse in her eyes, the one who broke down her defenses after her sister’s death until she realized she was capable of love. To her—aside from my name, Torrin Kingsley—I’m perfect.
But there’s a sliver of my past I’ve never shared with her. One that is now haunting me with every breath I take. One she is starting to raise her brow to.
I’m not certain how much longer I can keep it from her. To be honest, I don’t know that it would make a difference anyway, because it seems no matter which path I choose, they all lead to the same end point. A place without Quinn.
My demons run bone deep. I guess burying them forever wasn’t possible.
This novella was interesting. Torrin is a world-class crew man. He’s a great photographer, and a thoroughly in love with Quinn, the daughter of the crew coach who was fired when he jumped ship to his new school.
He’s torn between staying with the girl who holds his heart and the year-long photography internship that could define his career. And, he’s rather possessive of this Quinn. Now that her dad’s out of work, she needs cash for school. Torrin’s father has pledged to pay her expenses, but Quinn is proud–she wants to make her own way.
As a nude model…for the art department.
Knowing that he’s only got weeks left before leaving on the internship, Torrin tries to convince himself he can survive without Quinn–at least until Quinn decides for him.
It’s an interesting story. I liked the male POV, thought I felt it was a little Spartan in terms of content.
A Limited Edition of WITHOUT YOU is available for release week only which includes a bonus interview between Torrin and the author!
If you purchase both and forward the receipt to the author at firstname.lastname@example.org, she will send you a handwritten letter! (O_O)
