Blog Tour (Book Review):Beyond  These Walls by J.L. Berg




Happily ever after.

That was what we were supposed to have.

Pudding cups, sandy toes and a lifetime of making each and every one of our dreams come true—that is the future I’d promised her.

I could see it in my dreams, hold it in my hands, but then I watched as all of our hopes and wishes suddenly slipped through my fingers like sand.

I thought the worst was behind us, but what if we’d just delayed the inevitable?

They say love can overcome any obstacle. But can it survive death?

The breathtaking love story of Lailah and Jude concludes in Beyond These Walls.

Grace Review

Before I get started, I’m just going to leave this here.  Trust me, you’ll need them.

This was a beautiful story from beginning to end.  My heart soared, I fell more in love with Jude, and the tears flowed freely, as I hinted to above.

Within These Walls was one of my favorite books of 2014, so I was very excited to hear more from Lailah and Jude.  Their love story was born within the walls of a hospital, where Lailah’s Someday List became a reality, thanks to Jude.  So what happens beyond the walls of the hospital?  Their love story becomes even more beautiful.

The first 60% of this story is so perfect, I had a permanent grin.  Was it too sweet?  After the experiences and hardships both of them had to suffer, I don’t think anything could be considered too sweet.  They deserves all of the happiness.  Yet, I had to guess with each page, that something bad was going to happen.  It was all too perfect.

It wasn’t hard to figure out where the author would bring the heartache, but knowing it was coming, didn’t make it any easier.  I felt all the pain, anguish and uncertainty this couple felt.

As I mentioned previously, Jude, who already had a place on my BBF list, vaulted to my BH (book husband) list.  He seriously could do no wrong.

On the flip side, I had no idea what to think about Roman.  He clearly has a soft spot for Lailah and has the brains, when he chooses to use them.  But his hostility towards Jude wasn’t fully explored or explained.  The only solution to all of my open questions about him, is that the author MUST give Roman his own story.  This is not a request.  More of a demand.

This story will take you on a roller coaster of emotion.  It only seems appropriate how much this story made my heart feel – 60% heartwarming, 40% heartache.  A box of tissues later and with a smile on my face, we do get a HEA, so your heart will recover, just as mine did.
