Dangerous. Wrong. She could be so close to finding out who I really am, and I don’t want to think about how badly that could damage her. If I have any conscience, I’ll turn and run. But I can’t let her go.

Presley Hale has no idea the guy she just told off in the school parking lot died in a drowning accident four months ago. Why would she? It’s not like she knows she can s

Every so often you come across a book that hooks you from page one and doesn't let you go. Beyond is that kind of book. It's clean steam with a paranormal twist that will keep you turning pages far past bedtime.

The authors have written characters that are real and relatable, and I truly enjoyed getting to “know” them. The descriptions of everything from the scenery to the curliness of a character’s hair are beautiful and vivid. I could see the different settings in my mind (I may want to move to

Beyond is different than any book I have read. I didn’t think the ending would be like it was either. That ending blew me away!

From the beginning of the book, I was hooked. There were simple phrases that would grab you and you would wonder why they put that there and what does it mean? And after each sentence was more things that I had questions for. I had to keep reading, I had to know more!

Once Landon realizes that Presley the new girl can see him, a boy 5 months dead, he needs to know why. T

What a whirlwind! I love getting sucked into a book so much that I can't put it down all day! ;) These ladies have such a way with words! The characters and setting came alive through their descriptions and details. I am not typically drawn to paranormal stories, but I was drawn into this one right away by the unique concept and captivating connection between Presley and Landon. I loved the many references to making choices and the importance of progression through those choices. I loved Chas

3.5, rounding up

I haven't read a good paranormal/supernatural type romance in a bit so this book felt fresh and new to me. I loved the mountain setting of Truckee, Nevada. I drive through Truckee all the time on my way to California. It's a beast of a place in the winter!! You sure don't get many books set there but I loved it!

The characters in this book were good. I liked them and the way they all connected to each other. Presley has the weight of the world on her shoulders with a special needs

I really enjoyed this book. Beyond reads quickly, with a very entertaining plot and very likable characters. Presley is a great character. I loved her relationship with Chase, it was very sweet. Being his caregiver was hard, but she did it well. I loved the story line and where the authors took it. I enjoyed the POV switches between Landon and Presley. The climax was entertaining and heart-pounding, but I felt it we could have used a little more on the Vigilum. I know the story was about Landon ...more

Okay, this is a book I have had the hardest time to give a review so far. But here goes...


* This is a fast read and really chick flick YA book.

*I liked the setting of Truckee and all the other beautiful sceneries they “painted” in this book. Especially the beach. I could almost hear the waves.

* I like Presley’s friends. The fact that they fellowshipped a bullied student is amazing to me. I loved them even more after the fact that they were so kind to her brother, Chase, who has autism. T

What a quick, engrossing read! I love novels that I can just get sucked into, and this is definitely one of them. I liked the premise of the book and the many different themes it explores--life, death, love, difficult choices we must make, complicated family relationships, and more. I enjoyed reading from different characters' points of views and felt that that allowed me to know the characters on a deeper level. However, I felt like Landon's and Presley's relationship was a little rushed not as ...more

Beyond was a great read! I'm not sure if knowing one of the authors made me biased, but the characters were clever and funny and believable! (which they sometimes really aren't.) I heard Angela's voice saying the character's lines multiple times and it just made me laugh because it's exactly how she would say it. It read like a fairly classic clean teen romance, but the chapters are written from 3 or 4 of the main character's perspectives, which I liked a lot because you get to know them on a mo ...more

I started this book while waiting for my family to get into town. Late nights + vigilums = creepy vibes and unknown noises and being creeped out but in a good way. I couldn't put the book down and finally did 33 chapters in. I devoured the rest of the book this morning and I'm desperately hoping there is more to Landon and Presley's story. This book will leave me wanting for more for a very long time.
Writing BEYOND with my co-author and sister, Catina was one of the best experiences of my life. I'm a huge fan of Stephenie Meyer, Kasie West, Amy Harmon and Ally Condie. If you like these authors, you'll probably love the clean steam and fast paced elements of BEYOND. Catina and I are hard at work on the sequel to BEYOND which releases in 2018. We love to hear from our readers, so leave us a note! Thanks for reading, friends.

I really liked this book. It was descriptive enough to build the settings, the characters where real, faced challenges, real life situations amongst the surreal. It was strong enough to keep my attention yet clean enough that my daughter and read it-it's so difficult to find something we would both enjoy!!
Great job!!

There’s so much to love about this book! With a paranormal aspect filled with its own fascinating mythology, a main character in a refreshingly a non-standard role, an ending I couldn’t guess, well chosen, vivid settings that made the story come alive, all packed with mystery and new love and heartbreakingly tough choices, this is a story that will hook you from the start.

Loved this book!! I was so captivated by the characters it left me wanting more. I hope there is a sequel. This also opened my eyes to families with autistic children. My heart was pulled in so many ways. Loved this!!

My friend lent me this book and I finished it in two days! It’s a quick, easy (and clean) read but it totally sucked me in. Looking forward to the next book because that ending needs to be resolved.

This was a book I purchased for a teenage friend and my daughter who teaches 5th grade. Both of them loved the book. The teenager is recommending to her friends and my daughter was delighted to have a great story to add to her classroom bookshelf and recommended it to her teaching partners in 6th-8th grade. I also found the book to be a quick read and wanted to know what happened next.

I am a new reader in this genre. A few of my friends recommended the book. I could not put the book down once I started and I found myself thinking about the book and the characters throughout my day. The writing is so crisp and descriptive which made me feel like I knew the characters inside and out. The character development was very strong and the story progresses in a very entertaining way. I will look for other books from these authors or will start reading more in this genre.
I received an eBook from the publisher as part of the promotion for NaNoWriMo at Snow College’s Huntsman Library. It is my pleasure to provide a review. “Beyond” is very well written. It has a very interesting premise, and the ending is even more surprising than the beginning. It ends with a cliffhanger, which is a little annoying, but the sequel is out soon. I love the characters and I can’t wait to see how relationships develop now that circumstances have changed.

This book was definitely a page turner! Lot's of romantic twists and suspense. I really liked how it wasn't predictable or cliche' either. Paranormal romance is a favorite of mine and I thought the authors did a great job creating an engaging & epic romance story! I definitely recommend this one!

I couldn't put this book down. I loved the writing style of the authors and the storyline. I fell in love with the characters. I love clean novels like this one and the fact that I didn't have to worry about bad language or skipping certain scenes. The ending of this book had me yearning for more!!! Very well written. I definitely recommend this book. You won't regret it!

I absolutely feel in love with the characters! I haven't decided who I want Presley to be with the most. It was a real page turner. I plan to read it again. If you are looking for a great #cleansteam book this is the one for you!! Love it and it's going to be so hard waiting for the sequel!!

Totally intriguing. Took me right back to my high school days in the first few pages. Such an easy yet can't-put-it-down read!
This was honestly the only book I've ever read that I've chosen to reread the day after I finished it. I felt so sad the book was over.
Sequel PLEASE Catina.
