The first time Wyatt Hutton's pale blue eyes meet mine, they steal my breath-even if I only see them for a second before he refuses to look at me again.
He's older than me, by way too much, and if he had his way, our paths never would have crossed in the first place.
But our fate was written in the stars and while the truth of our families should keep us apart, life keeps b

A secret can consume a soul; it can destroy one’s life if it’s preserved by the wrong person or it could be kept secret if the person decides to take it to his grave. Wyatt has decided the latter because he preserves his father’s ignominious secret. His main goal is to handle this burden because he wants to protect his siblings and his mother. In the first part of the book the reader gets to know Wyatt and his struggle to remain sane but at the same time he/she will meet Kara, the daughter of hi ...more

Beyond Love is another heartfelt, touching romance from Abby Brooks. I think Wyatt may have just climbed his way to the top of my "Abby Brooks Heroes" list. It was impossible to resist his protective nature and the way he loves fiercely. And Kara was such a strong sassy heroine. There was no denying she was the perfect fit for Wyatt.

Not only is Beyond Love an amazing enemies to lovers romance, but the family aspect truly rounded out the story. A series of standalones that follow members of a fa

Perfect title!

I love the Hutton family and how perfectly imperfect they are. This is such a wonderfully emotional story. I devoured it in one sitting...couldn't out of down! Wyatt and Kara have crazy chemistry and a love story that spans over 7 years. Their happily ever after didn't come easily but was so good. Can't wait for more of this family!

This title is perfect for the second book in this series by Abby Brooks because it is all about unconditional love. Love of family, love of friends, and love of your soul mate. Readers got a wonderful introduction into the Hutton Family in book one of this series, Beyond Words, which I devoured. Lucas Hutton meets Cat in that story, and this book features his older brother, Wyatt. The writing in this book is so captivating and will tear at your heartstrings. You feel every emotion that Wyatt is ...more

Abby Brooks has always had a way of creating a story when she publishes a book but in this one she has outdone even herself.

This book could easily be the life story of two families thrown together for different reasons. As we look at the Hutton family and the Lockhart family and their interactions each with the other. And yes I cried at several points in this book, that's just how real this book seems. A child's shoulders were not built to bear the weight of their parent's choices :(

I read and reviewed this book voluntarily.
This is book 2 in the Hutton Family Series.
Wyatt was forced to keep his father's secret. In doing so he met Kara. They hated each other. They shouldn't work.
This boom takes place over years. Wyatt and kara meet when she is 16 and he is 21, and the boom ends about 6 years later I believe.
Kara's mom Madeline and Wyatts dad Burke had an affair. He supported her life style paid for everything and needed whyatt to help him bury the missing funds in the book

Beyond Love is a fitting title for the latest book in the Hutton family series.
Wyatt and Kara's tumultuous start is the result of two broken families pasts and presents and futures.
Not given much of choice in the matter they're bound together in some harsh and unforgiving ways, yet the connection between them is not always a hateful one...
Lies, complex emotions, family manipulations, heartbreak, and growing stronger through the betrayal these two would be nemesis are in for the good fight of mi

I loved this book!

Kara and Wyatt hated each other from the moment they met when she was 16 and he was 21. Her mother, the gold digger was having an affair with his father, who is a wealthy businessman. Over time Kara, winds up needing Wyatt’s help when she gets into some compromising situations. Slowly the two begin to form an attachment to one another. They fight their feelings, until he realizes he cannot be around the temptation with her being underage, so they send time apart. You know what

Fantastic book.

Beyond Love is a poignant story that will tug on your heart string. The love between the Hutton Family is like a code that could never be broken. They embrace, cheer, support, and lean on each other for everything, good or bad. The relationship between Wyatt and Kara starts under some very strange circumstances. Lies that Wyatt has to keep from his mother and his siblings because of his alcoholic father. It’s hate and resentment at first for Wyatt and Kara but that hate turns into

Wyatt and Kara are soulmates

Wyatt and Kara are what I would term soulmates. Meeting and feeling the pull, resisting the pull until ultimately it becomes all powerful. Some are consumed by it and burned out by it, while I think others can weave through the intricacies of love and the complexity that it often brings. This story really shows all of that and that real love is always worth fighting for. This book was extremely well written and yanked at my heart strings. I won't give any details, be

Absolutely loved...

This has to be Abby’s best book yet as book 2 in this series it has been amazing Wyatt’s story will drag you on an emotional roller coaster ride and rip your heart out and put it back together again. Kara and Wyatt are 2 of a kind in so many ways and yet they are so different at the same time . This story is almost has like a Romeo and Juliet vibe to it but the ending is so much better then what you can hope for. Through so much heart ache they both learn what true love really

Wow! What an emotional and attention grabbing book! The story of Wyatt and Kara is very touching. They both come from troubled parents and their ability to trust others is not there. But love does not chose perfect people. It chooses anyone at anytime. They both suffer with the idea of loving each other when their families should not cross paths again.
Abby has a way of continuing to write her books with so much emotion that you feel like you are a spectator the whole time you are reading them.

Epic Love Story

Wow! I have no words. I love with Wyatt & Kara. The story had me from the get go. So much feelings, passion and love. Defiance, trust, emotionally being wrecked - so.many emotions to describe through out this book. What a wonderful story of redemption, forgiveness and love. My heart was in my throat towards the final chapters - talk about emotional! Abby beautifully brings life to Wyatt & Kara's life that just come off the pages.

So hard to put into words they way this story just grabbed my heart and tugged me through this emotional journey. Wyatt and Kara are both so beautifully broken yet amazingly strong, my heart aches for the way they are used by their parents, yet also rejoices at they way they find their true strength in each other. Loved this journey from beginning to end and looking forward to visiting the Hutton family again.

Raw and Emotional

The second book in the Hutton Family series, and it was even better than the first. A good story of how parents can shape us, but don’t define us. It follows the lives of two people over the course of 8 years. There was a lot of pain, but ultimately so much happiness. I highly recommend this book. I read it in a day.

Omg the connections between these two characters was beautiful from the beginning. No matter the years they just couldn’t stay away. Wyatt and Kara, met under unfortunate circumstances but as years passed by they never admitted their love for each other until it was almost gone. It was beautifully written loved it from beginning to end
Brandi Devillier

This book was fantastic! I absolutely love Wyatt and how he takes his responsibilities seriously. He has a huge heart and brings everyone’s spirits up. I love Kara. She’s been through so much and yet she’s a stronger person because of it! This book was a page turner and kept me wondering what would happen to them both. I’m so glad I read this series by the author!

I definitely recommend getting this book. There is a lot of passion and fire in this book. I advise you to have tissues when reading this book. I absolutely love this book.

Abby did it again!! Such an amazing story ❤

Kara and Wyatt are destined to be together but they can’t seem to get their timing right. Will they ever get it together or will Kara be Wyatt’s forever secret?

So much love between these two characters. Even if they didn’t want to admit it, they fell for each other the day they first met!

Can’t wait for the next book!!

3 stars. Gah. This is tricky to review. I liked the premise. I liked the characters. I liked the plot as a whole. I just wanted everything to be flushed out more. The intimate moments lacked the tension I needed to really feel fully invested. The sex scenes were meh. The character growth toward the end could’ve been expanded more. I also felt like the transition between Then and Now was a little clunky. I read it quickly but feel like I should be left with feeling more satisfied about it.
