Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway- Without You by Brooklyn Skye

I am excited to be part of the Without You by Brooklyn Skye Blog Tour hosted by YA Bound Book Tours. As part of our post, we have my review of the novella along with the tour wide giveaway. 




Brooklyn Skye grew up in a small town where she quickly realized writing was an escape from small town life. Really, she’s just your average awkward girl who’s obsessed with words. You can follow her on Twitter as @brooklyn__skye or visit her website for updates, teasers, giveaways, and more. 



A Limited Edition of WITHOUT YOU will be available for release week only which includes a bonus interview between Torrin and the author!


Both STRIPPED and WITHOUT YOU will be on sale for $0.99. If you purchase both and forward the receipt to the author at, she will send you a handwritten letter! 


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.


*NOTE: We (The Readdicts) received a copy of Without You by Brooklyn Skye in exchange for an honest review. We thank Brooklyn for the book!  

Author Brooklyn Skye'Stripped (my review) was an amazing story with many aspects in it that were a first for me in New Adult books. It was a really good book that I really liked reading. When we were accepted to be part of the blog tour for a novella in the series, Without You, I was glad as I'd get to read and ARC of it. 
With the way Stripped ended, I wasn't expecting any more in the series because it ended well, with the couple, Quinn and Torrin, together and happy. But it seems there are many readers who wanted a full on happy ever after for them and so author Brooklyn Skye decided to write a short novella to show what happened to the cute couple after Stripped. Even though I thought that it was unnecessary, Without You was a very short and sweet read that I liked. 
Things are going pretty smooth between Quinn and Torrin until there comes a time when Torrin has to pick between taking his passion, photography to a new level or staying with Quinn, who is slowly starting to believe in love with Torrin right by her side. The decision isn't easy but the two work wonderfully to make everything fall in place. 
Author Brooklyn Skye's writing is really good. It's always nice to see a young couple work hard to make what they have stay. It wasn't any different with Quinn and Torrin. For a super tiny read, Without You was really good and I enjoyed reading it. 
I hope there are more novellas in the series since I would love a prequel from Quinn's bipolar and dead sister's point of view and another from Torrin's photography internship head's point of view since I'd love to know more about them both.

Thank you for stopping by! And I'd like to thank YA Bound and author Brooklyn Skye for this opportunity. 


  1. Yeah, it doesn't sound necessary, but I do like when authors revisit characters for a short bit just to show what happens after the main story ends.

    1. Me too; I think it's sweet, because I always wonder what happens after..

    2. I like it when they do that as well, Liviania.

  2. Thanks for the great review. I didn't know there was going to be sequel to Stripped either. I'll have to check it out.

  3. The only think I noticed in you review is that you want a novella from a dead person's pov? That's a bit weird. I haven't read Stripped, but seeing that the couple had a HEA in that book, the novella seems unnecessary. Nevertheless, I'm glad you ended up enjoying it, Sarika.

    1. No, that would be more a prequel but I'd like one anyway. Thank you, Aman.

  4. I remember seeing this cover reveal I think. This doesn't sound like something I'd enjoy but I'm so glad you did. I like it when novellas give us better view of the story. Great review Sarika :)

    1. Yep, it's too cliched for you, Tanja. Thank you.
