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.

~ 5 Beautiful Ending Stars ~
Well….What can I say. J.L. Berg has done it again. She has given us a story that exceeded my expectations. After I read Within These Walls I fell in love with Jude and Lailah and their story. So to say I was excited to know we were getting more of them, would be an understatement. This book was truly more than I could have hoped for. She gave us a best ending to Jude and Lailah’s story.
J.L. Berg gave us a book that was filled with so much emotion. I laughed, I cried, I blushed and my heart broke, but in the end I have the biggest smile on my face. I loved the journey that the author took us on with Jude and Lailah. She showed us that life isn’t always easy, and yes there are going to be ups and downs and scary moments in our lives, but if you have love and support you are able to get through anything together.
” Life is what you make of it — you just have to be brave enough to spread your wings and fly.”
We first met Jude and Lailah in Within These Walls (The Walls #1). That was a book of the start of their relationship and the trials and tribulations of two people who have a lot to overcome, both physically and emotionally. Beyond These Walls is the sequel to book 1. It is not necessary to have to read this book, because in my opinion book 1 ended on a great note, but after reading this book I would definitely recommend reading this book. This is NOT a standalone book, you definitely need to read book 1 before reading book 2. This book truly brings Lailah and Jude’s story full circle 🙂
” Love isn’t about perfection. It’s a beautiful chaotic mess.”
What I also loved about this book was that we got to see all the other secondary characters, that I fell in love with in book 1, in this book. It was nice catching up with Grace, Brian, Molly, Marcus and Roman, and seeing where their lives have taken them. What I did find interesting was how J.L. enhanced Roman’s character. She added a hint of mystery to him, all so that I am so excited to read his book when it comes out. I think he will have an interesting story to tell 😉
So if you haven’t read Within These Walls yet….don’t wait, pick up your copy today so that you can have it read by the time Beyond These Walls is released. You have to meet Jude and Lailah, you won’t be sorry!!!! If you are a fan of J.L. Berg’s you DON’T want to miss this book/series. I think these two books are her best yet and that is saying something because I loved her Ready Series. I know that when I pick up one of her books my emotions are going to be taken for a ride, but that I am going to get WONDERFUL and HEARTFELT story. And characters that will live in my heart for a long time.
