Sex isn’t love. Love isn’t sex. And friendship is neither.
The Life That Mattered, an all-new novel filled with suspense and intrigue from Jewel E. Ann, is available now!
The son of a French Olympic skier and a Malaysian fashion designer, Ronin Alexander has lived the life of a nomad, traveling the world to find his next adventure.
Life takes a dramatic turn when he meets Evelyn, a beautiful scientist who owns a bath shop in Aspen, Colorado. They defy all the rules of relationships, falling hard and quickly in love.
Their world intertwines with Evelyn’s two best friends, the Governor and his soon-to-be wife. The four become close—very close.
When tragedy strikes, things from their pasts are unveiled—unimaginable truths and the grim realization that life will never be the same.
Jewel E. Ann steps into another dimension with this mind-bending thriller, a provocative story that pushes boundaries and tests the true meaning of love.
I feel like I’ve run a marathon after finishing The Life That Mattered. Out of breath and high on adrenaline. Jewel E. Ann delivers the good stuff. The angst, the suspense and the romance.
The main characters are Evelyn and Ronin. Evelyn is best friends with Graham and Lila who’s getting married. That’s all I’m going to give away cause I don’t want to spoil anything.
What I loved about TLTM was the different dynamics between these couples. Evelyn shares a lot of history with Graham and Lila which also shows in their friendship and their dynamics. It’s a friendship but not without a price.
Evelyn and Ronin were freaking amazing together. Their courtship and friendship. My swooning heart enjoyed every moment of these two together.
I’m a huge fan of a dialogue heavy story and Jewel E. Ann is a master at that. She weaves a beautiful and complex story added with brilliant and humorous dialogue and my reader heart was on cloud nine. This is a fantastic character driven story that left me questioning which direction it and its characters were headed. It’s a puzzle game and I can’t wait to figure out the rest of the pieces to this spectacular plot and story. Go into this book with an open mind and be amazed. Brava!

Jewel is a free-spirited romance junkie with a quirky sense of humor.
With 10 years of flossing lectures under her belt, she took early retirement from her dental hygiene career to stay home with her three awesome boys and manage the family business.
After her best friend of nearly 30 years suggested a few books from the Contemporary Romance genre, Jewel was hooked. Devouring two and three books a week but still craving more, she decided to practice sustainable reading, AKA writing.
When she’s not donning her cape and saving the planet one tree at a time, she enjoys yoga with friends, good food with family, rock climbing with her kids, watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, and of course…heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, panty-scorching novels.
