Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway: 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.

Beyond These Walls by J.L. Berg is the amazingly heartwarming, heartbreaking and emotionally charged sequel to Within These Walls. The story of Jude and Lailah's romance continues once he has let go of his past and embraced who he is so that he can give the women that he loves, the woman who without even trying brought him back to life, a future she never thought was possible but wished for everyday. This story was a 5 star read for me and I highly recommend everyone read these books because they will immerse you in a story that is so tragic and sad but full of life and laughter that it will stay with you long after you turn the last page.

"The strength and courage you bring to this world make me proud to call you my friend. But don't let the world change you. Change the world, Lailah."

Lailah has gotten the one thing that she wished for, a new heart, and a future she never thought was possible when Jude came out of the prison he created for himself within the walls of the hospital and took over as head of his families company. It is the new heart the Lailah received that allowed for her and Jude to be together, to be able to love each other and of course to cross more things off of her someday list.

All Jude wants to do is love Lailah and make every dream that she ever had come true, except the one dream that could put their entire future in jeapordy. So careful to make sure that he protects her in every way that he can, Jude protects them most in their intimate moments no matter how much Lailah asks him not to.

Married life is agreeing with them, that is until Lailah goes to her doctors appointment to check on how her heart transplant is doing and receives news that she never imagined she would ever hear. With Jude scared out of his mind for what this could mean for their future, what it could do to Lailah's body and most specifically her new heart, he fails to react as she would want him to causing her to flee to California and comfort of her mother. It is in the moments when Jude realizes that Lailah has left that he knows even though he tried to protect her and perhaps failed in ensuring her health, being without her isn't something that he can do, she is too much a part of him, ingrained in his soul.

The story continues with this amazing couple finding their footing and learning to accept the unknown and a future that is as worrisome as it is filled with happiness. The ending will bring a tear to your eye, I know I reached for the tissues myself and it was worth every word on every page!!!! J.L. Berg this book was as amazing as the first and I am so glad that I got to see more from this couple!! This is a MUST read!

"Love isn't about perfection. It's a beautiful chaotic mess, and there isn't anyone I'd rather spend my life with than you."
