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.

I received an ARC of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

There are books that remain with you long after you’ve finished reading them. Beyong These Walls is one of those books. It’s not all the time when I don’t really care if anything exciting ever happened, if the book’s climax was worth the wait. But here, in this book, it could have had a simple trajectory, and I still would have enjoyed it.

The best thing about it wasn’t really the love story. It was the second best thing but only second. The best thing about the book was that it was about life. It was about living, falling in love, opening your heart, appreciating what you have. I just read a book that broke my heart, and now this. I don’t think I can take much more. But I don’t regret a single thing.

Beyond These Walls give us a great heroine who knew how to fight. She was soft and gentle, but she was the strongest. The book also had one of the best heroes I’ve ever met. A man who knew pain but also knew how to give happiness. I could not have asked for a better couple than Lailah and Jude.

J.L. Berg has once again gifted us with an amazing book. While a lot of her contemporaries are busy with the hot sex, steamy characters, and over the top love stories, she gives us a story that’s simple but deep and very touching. I swear this book is something I’ll keep coming back to down the road. It’s just that good.
