Product Description

Anna Romano had the picture perfect life. As a brilliant high school student and talented artist with a supportive family, she couldn’t imagine her life being any better. Her days were spent fantasizing about finishing high school, and dreaming of a future with her loving boyfriend.

Ryan Jacobs had his life figured out. He was enlisting in the Navy, and his high school sweetheart was applying to art school. Just a few more months and the life they’d planned together would become a reality.

On a cold February day, tragedy struck and flipped Anna’s life upside down. The bright and colorful world she once lived in turned to gray. Retreating into herself, she pushed Ryan away. She pushed everyone away. Then she ran.

Ryan was lost without Anna, but truthfully, she had been gone long before she even left. He did the only thing he could do, he went on with his life. Years later, the last thing he expected was to bump into her more than two thousand miles from home.

Love, pain, distance, and secrets.
Would their challenges tear them apart?
Or was their love strong enough to mend them forever?

Here Without You is a standalone romance with a trigger warning. A mass shooting takes place in the prologue and is referenced periodically throughout the book.

Anna Romano and Ryan Jacob’s are high school sweethearts and they have their whole ife planned out. Anna was going to art school and Ryan was enlisting in the Navy, then they were going to spend the rest of their lives together ad live happily ever after. Then tragedy struck and threw their plans out the door. Anna wasn’t the same person after the tragedy, she changed and then ran away leaving behind her family and more importantly Ryan behind. Ryan was lost without Anna but he kept living his life hoping he would someday see Anna again and then when he least expected it, there she was miles away from home and looking as lost as the day she left. Can he get Anna back or has too much happened or too much time pasted?
I totally loved this story it had me feeling every emotion and that was in the first chapter. From the very start I had a smile on my face while reading and then tears streaming down my face. The way this author wrote this story was so real. The tragedy that happened is something that can happen in this day and age and that’s why I felt it deep in my soul and I’m sure it will do the same to whoever reads this story. It truly struck a cord with me. I loved the connection between Ryan and Anna and how beautiful he was with her and her feelings. I gave this book a much deserved 5 stars because I feel that if a story has you feeling so much it’s definitely a good one!

Here without you

Well what can I say. I loved this book from start to finish, they way Jennifer has written this sucks you in and you can't put it down.
Anna and Ryan's story is one that a number of people will be able to relate too.
Anna had the world at her feet the perfect boyfriend and her dream of going to art school. That all change one frightful day.
Ryan new where his life was headed and Anna was a big part of it. He was joining the Navy after his senior year but thanks to that frightful day that changed.
With what Anna witnessed she suffered PTSD and fled from her hometown. She left everything behind because she was carrying so much guilt.
Anna was lost and alone until Ryan spotted her one night. They talked and she had told him she wanted to go home but was afraid. Ryan made that happen for Anna.
Anna has worked hard to become herself again, it took her awhile but she had the support of her family and Ryan even when he deployed for the Navy. Anna got her dream and was on her way to art school.
But Ryan is hiding a secret will this secret tear them apart before they even start the next step in their friendship.
You will just need to pick this one up and read it to see if Anna and Ryan actually get their happily ever after. I know I loved they way this ends an I know you will too. It's a must read.

Here Without You
By: Jennifer L. Allen
5 out of 5 stars

The story Here Without You by Jennifer L. Allen is a New Adult/Military romance book. What happens when your life turns upside-down in one day? Anna Romano’s life was perfect. She was looking forward to the future with her boyfriend and taking the next steps in their lives together. One day changed everything for both her and Ryan. She cuts everyone out of her life and then runs. Then one day Ryan finds Anna more than two thousand miles from home. What is in the cards for Anna and Ryan? Is their love still alive after all the time that has passed?

This is a story that was very emotional for me. Reading about the event that first happens and then the aftermath is sobering. However, this book is also about hope and the power of love. It is told from the POV of both Anna and Ryan. Anna is a girl with a future. She has a wonderful boyfriend and they have their life planned out after they graduate high school. Their plans for the future always included one another. One tragic event changes everything for Anna and she can’t recover from all she has seen. It is sad to read about how she pushes everyone away from her, even Ryan. Then one day Anna and Ryan meet again and things begin to change. There has been so much time that has passed since they last saw each other and then with old feelings resurfacing will they be able to overcome any challenges or will those challenges take away any possibility for a second chance at love?

Ryan knows what he wants out of life. He enlists in the Navy and will build his life around both his career and Anna. So it hurts when Anna pushes him away, however, he goes on with his life. Even so, he still thinks about Anna. Ryan is someone that Anna has always been able to talk to. Now that she is back in his life will it be as just a friend or something more?

This is a beautiful story that will touch your heart. The book is well written and has characters that you can identify with. I can’t wait to read more of her books. This book does include a mass shooting that takes place in the prologue and is referenced to periodically throughout the book. It would be recommended for a mature audience.

Love, love, love!!! With every book Jennifer L. Allen writes she gets better and better. She made me feel the pain and horror that Anna was going through. Then to turn around and make me understand the love that Ryan still had for Anna; swoon. I felt I was right there in the story going along with every struggle that Anna was going through; she becomes your best friend. You will totally root for her to believe in her self again.

I loved Ryan and Anna; the emails back and forth were the best part of the book for me.

This was a beautiful love story about two people separated by horrible circumstances and finding themselves and finding a way back to each other. Anna and Ryan's story was what second chances are all about and how life can sometimes throw things at you, but if something is meant to be, there is no stopping it.

Here Without You by Jennifer L. Allen –

***Trigger Warning*** A mass shooting takes place and is referenced in the book.

This is a difficult one for me to rate. I am waffling between 4 and 5 stars, so I’m going to write the review and reflect back on the book while writing it.
This is also one of those reviews that I will write without referring to any specific incident in the book because I don’t want to give anything away. You can read the synopsis to know the basic overview of the story.

In a nutshell a life changing event takes place that no one really knows how to deal with and each and every one deals with in a different way. It’s something that I hope I never have to experience, counsel on or write about from a first-hand perspective. At different times in this story, I wanted to shake and yell at each and every character for a variety of reasons.

Jennifer L. Allen has written a book that had me feeling so many emotions all the way down to rage. Certain aspects of the book where retold with absolutely no emotion while others aspects had me so profoundly sad that I just couldn’t… The way Ms. Allen writes about love and life and growing up and all of it was just – just – just, well it was really good. I imagine that it’s a tough subject to write about and while this story was original in its telling, it completely took me out of my little glittery happy reading bubble and put me out in a cold cold place. I can’t imagine that anyone knows exactly how to react when dealing with this topic and when I was getting down to 91% 93% 95% of the book being complete, I just couldn’t imagine how this story could end. While it’s an almost rushed ending after so much detail when into writing the book, it ended exactly as it should.

So to recap, I’m giving this book 5 stars because of all of the feelings it has put me through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ronnie goes to buy more of her favorite lipstick while Anna goes on ahead to the coffee ... 19 April 2017
By Hornsfan73 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Here Without You is a standalone novel by Jennifer L. Allen. I’m always a sucker of a tear jerker and this one started with the tears and I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to stop crying.

Anna and her older sister Ronnie were shopping for Ronnie’s Prom dress while Anna decided to shop later. It’s such a huge and joyful milestone in a teenage girls’ life. Ronnie goes to buy more of her favorite lipstick while Anna goes on ahead to the coffee shop to wait for her boyfriend Ryan and Ronnie. As she waits there is a loud pop and screaming starts. There is a gunman in the mall and he is shooting. Anna is frozen in fear for not only herself but her sister and boyfriend. She is fine physically but emotionally she is a wreck, her life is turned upside down in that moment.

Flashforward four years, Anna left home after the shooting and her breakdown and is currently living in Seattle. As she is walking down the street heading towards the bus stop a familiar voice calls her name and is the last person she expected to see, it’s her ex-boyfriend Ryan.

Ryan was heartbroken when Anna broke up with him then ended up taking off as he was leaving for the Navy and basic training. He has tried to move on over the last four years but still worries about her enough that he still contacts her family. He was never expecting to run into her on a random street on the other side of the country. He convinces her to talk and go back home to her family.

I really enjoyed this book and the various twists. Ryan is the type of guy I hope my daughter finds and brings home one day. This is a very happy ending, but I suggest not reading the beginning in public unless you are okay with crying in front of others.
