Book Review: Beyond by Melissa Pearl

Beyond (Betwixt #1.5) by Melissa Pearl 
Genre:  MatureYoung Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: October 20, 2013
Publisher: Self

Have you ever been so in love with someone, but not had the courage to tell them?

Nicole Tepper is that girl. She loves her boyfriend Dale, but fearing rejection, keeps her feelings buried deep. She can’t even let on how heartbroken she is when Dale begins applying for colleges thousands of miles away from her; never even whispering a word about how much she wishes he would stay close.

But, when Dale is rejected from Columbia University in NYC, due to a police record that follows him wherever he goes, Nicole soon discovers that love can drive her to do things she never thought possible.

There's more than one way to say, I love you and Nicole Tepper is about to prove to Dale that she loves him beyond all common sense.

Beyond is the sequel to Betwixt by Melissa Pearl. This novella gave us a glimpse into the lives of Nicole and Dale after Betwixt. They are an adorable couple. Dale's past is coming back to bite him as he applies for colleges. Nicole is determined to help, but doesn't know how, plus she's afraid of what will happens once he leaves. I wouldn't mind hearing more from Dale and Nicole in the future, but while looking around on the author's blog it looks like this is the final book for them. Beyond wrapped up this story line nicely.

Beyond by Melissa Pearl was provided to me by Xpresso Book Tours for review. The opinions are my own.

Check out my reviews of Betwixt (Book 1) and Before (Book 0.5)

Melissa Pearl was born in Auckland, New Zealand, but has spent much of her life abroad, living in countries such as Jordan, Cyprus and Pakistan… not to mention a nine month road trip around North America with her husband. “Best. Year. Ever!!” She now lives in China with her husband and two sons. She is a trained elementary teacher, but writing is her passion. Since becoming a full time mother she has had the opportunity to pursue this dream and her debut novel hit the internet in November 2011. Since then she has produced four more books and has a YA fantasy trilogy coming out this year. Unknown and Unseen (The Elements Trilogy) out now!

“I am passionate about writing. It stirs a fire in my soul that I never knew I had. I want to be the best writer I can possibly be and transport my readers into another world where they can laugh, cry and fall in love.”

  1. Thanks so much for this review. I'm happy to say that Dale and Nicole will be featuring in my upcoming series - The Mask Series. They are not main characters, but it's saw awesome to have them involved and they will become more prominent as the series progresses :)
