This is a novella that takes place in Vaun's Return to Earth universe. Book 1, All Things Rise, had quite a few characters that left you wanting to know, what happened to them? Sweet Jessica Walker, was one of them.
I really liked the love story between Jess and Sam. For a book only around a 100 pages, you cared for them and wanted them to be happy. My problem with novellas is that they normally seemed rushed, I didn't get that feeling here. It felt like a full story, which was nice.

4.5 stars. This was fun and sweet and great. Takes place entirely on the ground in the same world where All Things Rise takes place.

This is a wonderful complementary story to 'All Things Rise'. Two communities are presented where one exists on the planet surface, and one is constructed and maintained far above the surface of the planet in what is called a cloud community. The first book of this series revolved around one of the most beautiful love stories I had the pleasure of reading. This book takes place exclusively on the planet, where life is often harsh yet friends and neighbors are by and large supportive, friendly, a ...more

This is more like a add-on than a full book since it's only 100 pages, but the couple here (Jessica and Sam) isn't as interesting as the couple in All Things Rise (Cole and Audrey), which is probably why 100 pages is already a stretch, lol.

Jessica is actually a minor character from All Things Rise and I got the book because I thought it was another character (Jessie the maverick pilot oops). Well, this romance is even more straightforward than I expected. Young girl is attracted to older girl,

I admit, I jumped into this book with gusto because I enjoyed All Things Rise so much. And I'm glad I did.

This follow-up book is just as enjoyable and entertaining as the first. While not a direct sequel, The Ground Beneath features characters from All Things Rise and provides the reader with a deeper look into Jessica Walker's life. But fans of All Things Rise will be happy to see Cole and Audrey again in a different capacity.

The Ground Beneath is more of pure romance. Yes there is some adventu

A fantastic and captivating love story!

This is an outstanding love story and it's set in a great environment. It's well written with characters that felt so real. It's all about faith, hope, trust and love. I like this book so much that I've purchased immediately All Things Rise. What a first acquaintance with this author! I definitely recommend this to anyone.

Really great read

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I found myself drawn to the characters and would like to see their story continue at some point. This is my first time reading this author's work and I will definitely be reading more by her. Thank you for a great read.
