REVIEW: Within These Walls by J.L. Berg


Within these walls, he became my solace, my sanctuary and my strength. 

I am not strong.  I am just a survivor of circumstance.
Isn’t that what we all do?  Survive?

Each of us has our own set of circumstances to muddle through.  Mine are just more…complicated.

Born with a severe heart defect, I’ve seen the inside of a hospital room more than my own bedroom.

I was drowning, a prisoner to the illness that owned me, until he appeared.  He thinks he’s blocked out the world with his tattoos and hard exterior, but I see the real Jude, the one he so desperately wants to forget.

But is he the answer to my prayers or will he break my already damaged heart forever?

My name is Lailah Buchanan, and this is our story of hope, redemption and sacrificing it all for the one you love.

I was closed into the room with Lailah as soon as I started reading this story!

Wow!  J.L. Berg knows how to make you fall straight into the characters of her story.  I sooo felt everything Lailah was going thru emotionally.

Pudding Snacks will now always mean something different to me.

Loved this story about Laliah & Jude.  Loved how 2 people from different ways of life can be united by events they had no clue had them together in the past.

I loved Jude hard reading this book.  He is a guy who we all dream about having once in our lifetime.  If you can find a Jude, don't let him get away.  Keep him :)  Jude falling in love with Laliah had my heart swelling big.  He totally won me over.  Jude has issues of his own with expressing himself and Laliah makes him want to better himself.  He wants to make her happy and doing that has him realizing that he needs to work on himself in order to accomplish that.

Laliah is pure innocence.. Jude helps her feel like she can live her life even under the circumstances she is under.  He makes her closed in world into an open canvas of possibilities and reality.

I really liked how J.L. Berg makes you believe & feel the emotions of her characters.  I cried, laughed and totally swooned reading this book.

Read this story & feel the love that radiates out of it.

Perfect love story to devour ;)
