When I first read the synopsis of this book, I knew that it was going to be an emotional read for me. What I didn't know, is that it would be a book that touched my soul. This wasn't just another read for me, it was a gift. A gift from a truly amazingly talented author - J.L. Berg. This story is a lesson, a reminder, a journey, an experience - a gut wrenching, tear inducing, cuddle with your stuffed animal kind of story. I lost my heart to this book, but in return - I gained two characters that I will never forget. Two characters that will forever hold a piece of me, and that's a trade that I was more than happy to make.

Lailah Buchanan was sadly born with a heart defect. Symptoms and episodes from this have kept her life mostly restricted to permanent residence in the hospital under careful care. You would think that being confined like this for most of her young life would have hardened her, made her slip into depression. However, that's not the case. She's truly an innocent, loving girl that looks for the positive in every situation. There's a scene in the beginning of the book that gives us an early glimpse into who she is. A scene that has cemented itself as one of my favorites. Wanting to indulge herself in a late night snack of chocolate pudding, she is unfortunately left with the yummy, yummy pudding, but no spoon. Not about to let that faze her, she digs right in and inhales that treat using the timeless action of spooning it up with her finger. I simultaneously was laughing and crying at this part - picturing her with a chocolate smeared face, inhaling that pudding and experiencing just the true joy of living in the moment.

*Note I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review*

Within These Walls was a good read. I did enjoy the story, but things happened a little too quickly (especially for Jude) for it to be really believable. It was still an enjoyable read.

Lailah has been in and out of the hospital her entire life. She has a heart defect that prevents her from living a normal life. Her mom is super paranoid about anything happening to her so she pretty much just stays in her house when she is not in the hospital. She doesn't go to school (home schooled) or have friends (besides people at the hospital). She has had a really sheltered life, has had many hardships, but she still has such a positive outlook. She tires really hard to stay positive when it would be easy to become depressed or angry.

"My life is not horrible. It is just different, I remind myself"

Jude is just coasting through life. He does not really want to live anymore since his fiance died three years ago. They were on vacation in California and the hospital is the last place he saw her alive. He pretty much lives at the hospital, working as much as he can, and he feels closer to her when he is there. He comes from an affluent family, but after the accident that took his fiance he cut them off. He doesn't have friends or really even talk to anyone. No one knows who he is, and he likes it that way.

When Jude first sees Lailah he is drawn to her. It is pretty cute. He sees her eating a pudding cup with her hands and so he starts sneaking in late at night and leaving them for her. A pudding cup ninja (see excerpt below). Eventually they start talking and hanging out, but Jude does have a hard time with it all.

Within These Walls by J.L. Berg
*was generously provided a copy in exchange for an honest review

J.L. Berg has done it again. I am truly becoming a complete fan girl of this woman. Berg has become one of those authors I just automatically one-click, no need to read the synopsis because it will be great. WITHIN THESE WALLS is an amazing standalone one big feelings adventure. Can you tell I loved this book? This is one of those books that is super hard to review because I do not want to give spoilers. Just buy this book…lol

Okay, so here it goes. Lailah Buchanan was born with a heart defect that has kept her prisoner “within the walls” of hospital after hospital. Jude is man full of heartache of his own that just happens to be a nurse’s assistant in Cardiology, hence they meet. Jude has closed off everyone and anything other than the halls of the hospital and his memories of love past. Can they break down the walls of the heart are truly love? That is the million dollar question.

There is an abundance of substance to this story. I needed a whole lot of Kleenex to get through this story. Lailah is just amazingly sweet. She has an innocents about that is irresistible. Jude is a man that has been broken completely and cannot help but love. This is a love story about HEALING and SACRIFICE, physical and emotional.

WITHIN THESE WALLS is well written with strong endearing characters that stay with you. Many feelings are invoked and is not just a light, no worries read but it is a standalone with an HEA. I would strongly recommend WITHIN THESE WALLS and really at this point, anything by J.L. Berg. She has become one of my favorite authors and am looking forward to anything more she writes.

WITHIN THESE WALLS receives 5 out of 5 Platypires.
Texas Hugs and Happy Reading!!!
