THE iREAD REVIEW
Beyond Love, the second story of the Beyond series by author D.D. Marx, finds Olivia and Finn trying to make their new relationship work despite numerous obstacles encountered.
Brought together by two of their deceased loved ones, the couple, now at the other end of a whirlwind romance, must find a way to merge their lives. When Finn gets in a life-changing accident and Olivia must reveal a painful secret, the two must work through these hurdles in order to find happiness. With the support of family and friends, will they find their way to happily ever after?
D.D. Marx has written a heart-wrenching follow-up story about two individuals who just can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to love. This sequel to Beyond Believing will have readers crossing their fingers for it to prevail. Olivia experiences more than her share of heart-stopping moments as she prepares to move across the country to be with Finn and faces various moral dilemmas, coming across as a very sympathetic character. The reader wants her to come to the right decision, while also not wanting her to experience any resulting negative fallout.
At times, it may seem like things come a little too easily to our protagonists, such as when Olivia effortlessly pulls together a fundraiser and has a roster of celebrities ready to help out, or when she is able to achieve her career dreams with very little personal struggle. However, the challenges they encounter, such as Finn finding himself at the heart of a terrorist attack, help balance that. And while Beyond Love could be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel, readers will appreciate the character development and story background provided in Beyond Believing.
Filled with mouth-watering food descriptions, heartwarming moments with friends, and enough romantic moments to satisfy even the most voracious romance reader, Beyond Love is a satisfying addition to the Beyond series, and one that will leave readers clamoring for the next release.
