Wilson Mooney

Gretchen de la O 


Max Goldstein has been confronted by death, betrayal, and unwanted expectations. He must work to find the delicate balance of a love that has been tested and a family that has been broken. Returning to the warmth of Wilson’s arms, he finds the only place he can be truly healed. Unfortunately, teetering on the edge of losing everything he’s ever wanted, Max must make decisions that pull at his sense of responsibility and push at his desire to protect the life he’s found with Wilson.

When Wilson Mooney is thrust into adulthood, she never expects her childhood demons to come knocking. Struggling to balance the delicate nature of her relationship with Max and the burning sting of betrayal; Wilson realizes she must dig deep within her soul to find forgiveness. Will she allow circumstances out of her control to shape her future? Or will she find the strength and maturity to go beyond eighteen and have the life she desires with the man she loves?

Will Wilson and Max ever get to have their happily ever after?

Amy's Thoughts~

Where to start with Wilson? If you haven't read this series. Go, Get it now. It's amazing! 

Now that Wilson & Max have surpassed the secrecy of their relationship, real life sneaks through the back door. 

Max, struggling to protect Wilson from the backlash, now has to deal with the massive responsibility thrust on his shoulders. In a situation he never wanted to be in.  Wilson, now that the time has come to finalize life after her grandparents death, find that secrets have been kept from her for nearly her whole life. Secrets that could have made life a little better for her. Maybe things would have turned out differently for Wilson. 

Both of them struggling to be together, while working out issues that must be dealt with on opposite sides of the country. How can they make this work? 

I really feel like Beyond Eighteen couldn't have gone in any other direction than it did. Throughout this series, we see Wilson go from a insecure, young adult to a confident, happy woman. It was a pleasure to witness her transformation. With Beyond Eighteen, it was the final piece of the puzzle with Wilson & Max finding their place in the world together, learning to balance what's most important in life. Love.
