I was definitely intrigued when I first read the synopsis for Without You Here. I really want to know what the "chance meeting" was that shatter things between Ettie and Wyatt, and what happened the night he met, and what about her boyfriend? All these questions were answer when I finally dove into Without You Here.
My favourite thing about Without You Here would have to be the age difference between Ettie and Wyatt. For me it made the story that much more interesting. Not that the story was lacking, there were enough plot twist to keep my on my toes and waiting to see what would happen next! I have to say I was slightly disturbed when I found out what the "thing" was the made Ettie and Wyatt's relationship go down a rough road. I wasn't really sure how they would get past this HUGE obstacles and I honestly didn't think it was going to work out, but as the story continues to develop we see that it does.
The chemistry between Ettie and Wyatt is amazing! Ettie really helps Wyatt seek help for his depression and opens his eyes to new possibilities. Despite the age different, and a major bump in the road Ettie and Wyatt come out strong on top.
I would have liked more information into Ettie's past. We get a little sneak peek into it, but I felt like there was a lot more that could have been shared with the readers.
Overall, Without You Here was a great contemporary read. Carter Ashby is definitely an author I'll be keeping an eye out for. I recommend Without You Here for readers who love contemporary and want to read a book that will pull at your emotions.
