Beyond These Walls showed love beyond human standards.  Within These Walls is one of my ever- favorites and yes, it was hard to let go of such amazing characters and story then. And so, I overjoyed to be reunited with Lilah and Jude again post- hospital and post- cancer.  Their love story was a bliss. Half of the story I kept smiling and my heart got so big with the love they have expressed to each other in this book. I felt Jude and Lilah's eternal love for each other.  But life is not a bed of roses. Especially for Lilah and Jude who had seen and withstand the biggest of all life's challenges- death. Through Lilah and Jude's fear, my fear grew too. The what ifs and the anticipation if this is their going to escape death the second time around kept me on the edge and very antsy. "There were no tears of sadness and no cries of loss, only the sound of hope and the promises of great things to come."  J.L. Berg knew how to turn on the waterworks. It's amazing how she can twist and turn her stories to their perfections. Within These Walls had made me cry... of joy from love, passion and sacrifice that it had reflected from the pages of the book to me, the reader.

J.L. Berg is my new favorite author and she lives in the same great state as me! Lailah and Jude have an amazing love that is so strong and they have the strength to overcome anything and everything. I thoroughly reccomend reading Within these Walls and Beyond these Walls as well as J.L. Berg's Ready series which are awesome love stories as well. :) I can't wait to read the next book about Jude's mysterious brother Roman.

I loved this book!! It was every bit as good as the first installment on Angel and Jude story. One of the best series I've read in a long time.

I can’t get enough of Lailah and Jude and their pudding cups. They were a match made in heaven, and they deserve their happy ending after everything that they have been through individually and together. Two years later, they are still living their HEA, and on their way to the altar. Lailah is studying and Jude is working in his father’s company. Everything was just perfect. Everyone was happy. But it didn’t mean that they don’t worry. Lailah would always be at risk, so extra care would always be given to her. Monthly check-ups, morning pills are just part of her routine. The moment they finally said their I do’s, alongside their families was the happiest days of their lives, so is the honeymoon, but not long after their bubble was punctured and it painfully burst. Suddenly, their future was once again bleak, their HEA was hanging by a thread, and every dreams they built was slipping on their fingers. They were up against fate, and it would take a whole lot of faith before they can finally have their happy-ever-after once again. Because I always believe love can overcome anything, but I was not sure if it can overcome death. So painfully, I read through the pages, crossing my fingers, wishing that J.L. Berg would be kind enough to allow them to have their HEA. Because this is a couple who I have grown fond of, and whom I really, really like. They have beaten the odds in the first book, and I just knew, even if the statistics was not on their side that they can make it. Their love was THAT strong, his faith was that solid and she was a fighter. She would not be defeated without a fight. And she WILL fight, for Jude, for their family. Another interesting thing about this book is Roman, who will star in J.L. Berg’s next book (#excited). He was an enigma. I could not really read him – what was his problem? He can be a charm, he can be amazing, he can be all grown up, but he chose to act like he doesn’t care most of the times. Then there was this conversation in the barbershop… I was dying to know the story behind it, hopefully our author would be so kind to reveal it in the second book. If you love the first book like I did, you will love this epic conclusion to their story. It simply took my breath away (and literally at the near end of the novel), I love the roller coaster of emotions, the surprises, and the love, hope and faith that is oozing in every page.

Beyond These Walls takes us into the life of Jude and Lailah and their after. We experience the challenges of a young couple that never thought love could ever be possible. A boy who merely existed. A girl who didn’t truly live. There is so much more to their story and their future.  “But you pulled me out of the darkness.” You felt the apprehension of Jude and Lailah to be happy. Always waiting for the the shoe to drop. While their life seemed  perfect, there are so many factors that can impact their life with each other and happiness. When choices need to be made, you feel their inner struggle to cope and understand what life has thrown their way once again. But their love never faltered. It was always constant. Their love was consuming and continued to shatter obstacles. But what happens when the obstacle means life or death? What if that obstacle threatens their foundation? What else can Jude and Lailah survive now?  “I realized that I could do nothing for the rest of my existence but tell you how much I love you, and it still wouldn’t be an accurate measurement of what I feel for you. My love  is immeasurable, infinite and always evolving and you have it, all of it...” Oh Jude. If any man could ever love me half as much as you love Lailah, I would be the luckiest girl in the world. Jude loves fiercely. Loudly. His love cannot be explained by words. Because there are no words for his love.  His heart simply speaks his love for Lailah with every heartbeat. His love for her knows no boundaries. And Lailah? She demonstrates such strength this time around. Even more so than the first book. I was in awe of her character.  Once again the author immerses us within the world of Jude and Lailah and this was a touching continuation of their story. Their powerful story of love, hope, and survival was full of raw emotion. "I know you think that I saved you, but in all honestly, it was you who saved me..." Love truly saves. Jude and Lailah saved each other. In so many ways. You don’t really understand the depth of their love and how much they truly mean to the other until you read Beyond These Walls. Jude was in perpetual darkness and it wasn’t until Lailah that he saw any kind of light. And Jude reminded her  that there is life beyond the walls of the hospital. He recognized his own fear in her. But she made him want to be whole again. He wanted to FEEL again. Jude and Lailah’s story will challenge your ideas of love and what it can truly survive. The author doesn’t hold back with this story. That crazy thing called life? Jude and Lailah have endured so much within the limited time they’ve spent on this earth. But with love they overcame. For love truly conquers.

Be still my ever beating heart! When I heard there was more of Lailah and Jude’s story, I was so happy! JL Berg blew me out of the water with her story Within These Walls and it was one of my absolute favorite reads of 2014! Beyond These Walls takes us further into Lailah and Jude’s happily ever after, sharing the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. It is a story filled with so much emotion, hope, and love. I was not sure what to expect, but when I finished this book I thought to myself “That was the absolute perfect ending for some of my favorite characters.” Thank you JL for such a powerful love story! Beyond These Walls takes us into the world of Jude and Lailah, two absolutely adorable people so madly in love with each other that it could be too sweet but it never was. Lailah is a survivor who once again finds her tenacity for life, an excitement that had being too dull in her normal day to day life. She is one of my favorite characters because she has such a respect and love for the mundane. Having had a tumultuous life in and out of surgeries and the hospital,  she is free to enjoy what she saw for so many years from the sidelines. She loves deeply and lives fearlessly. When hard times come, she is determined to fight on despite the uncertainty. I loved her love of people and life. It is inspiring. Jude is the perfect love for Lailah. He has healed from his past heartaches and become the man she needs. He understands her in such a way that they truly complete one another. His vow to protect her will never be swayed. His heart is big and his love for Lailah is overwhelming. I was excited to see what plotlines and themes we see in this story and HOLY SMOKES I was not disappointed. I do not want to give anything away in my review but know that this book will tug at your heartstrings. Their love grows every day and they begin a life of happily ever after together. When hardship strikes, it is a raw and emotional time for these two. Their fear and uncertainty creates friction in their relationships but these two choose to fight. They have survived so much and this is something they are determined to win. While reading this book I felt so much. There is so much joy, as well as so much uncertainty. You literally never know what is going to happen until it does. I felt like I was always waiting for the other shoes to drop, so to speak.  The fate of this couple was uncertain at times but they fought till the end of the last page with so much love and tenacity. The follow up to Jude and Lailah’s story is exactly what I wanted and I am so happy to have read their story! This is a book you will not want to miss! If you have not read Within These Walls, go one click and then read Beyond These Walls. These two books will give you a fresh perspective on life and the beauty around you, inspiring you to enjoy every moment and living life with passion and abandon!

Within these walls was a great book, and this sequel was just a too long epilogue. No tension until half way. The fluctuating personality of Roman was never resolved - is that for another book? If so, what was with the 18 years post epilogue? I skipped through most of it. Not recommended.
