Summary

“In another life, she was my forever.” 

An unexpected tragedy leaves Professor Nathaniel Hunt a widower alone with a newborn baby. 

He hires a nanny. She’s young but well-qualified, with a simple life, a crazy name obsession, and a boyfriend she met at the grocery store. 

Over time, he discovers she knows things about him - things that happened before she was born - like a hidden scar on his head, his favorite pizza, and how he cheated on a high school Spanish test. She speaks familiar words and shares haunting memories that take him back to over two decades earlier when he lost his best friend in a tragic accident. 

“I’m afraid of what’s going to happen when you realize I’m not her.”

Transcend is a sexy, mind-bending journey that uncovers possibilities, challenges beliefs, and begets the age-old question: Is there life after death?

Brilliant!

Transcend (Transcend #1) is an absolute must read that takes you on a journey of love, loss, and heartbreak. The emotionally raw storyline is an unconventional love triangle between Swayze, Griff, and Nate that will touch your heart, then break it, then put it back together. It's brilliant!

Epic!

Where to begin? This is DEFINITELY not your usual chiclit, if anything it reminded me of a Barbara Erskine book only with more passion and sex.

There are so many twists and turns, push and pulls, gripping stuff. The writing is excellent, narration good (not too keen on the male —>female bits, why can’t they just get a woman to do the woman’s bits?????), the storyline is memorable and characters relatable and likeable.

The fact that there were two books in this series made it all that more awesome. A brilliant read (or listen 😝). First I’ve read by this author, will definitely be adding Jewel E Ann to my watch list 😊😊

Book 1

Not a fan of "to be continued... " But...this duet is well worth it! Before you begin, make sure to have a box of tissues. I laughed out loud! I wanted to throw my phone! I cried! I had an idea where I was being lead. But, what a great story!

UNIQUE, UNMISSABLE & TRULY UNFORGETTABLE

OMG this Duet!!.. this incredibly moving, heartbreaking, touching, heartfelt Duet completely consumed my days and my nights and I’m in total awe of this author’s remarkable writing abilities to create such a tragically beautiful story and wonderful characters. Reincarnation, passion, romance, sex, gut wrenching heartache and love.. love.. love.

A unique story told mainly from the heroine’s POV, the narration was perfect by Andi and Stephen and there were SO many emotional tugs on my heart and my soul. Go in blind and let the feels take you on a journey you’ll never forget.

Worth a credit? Oh.. my.. God YES - Jewel E. Ann slowly broke my heart.. and then pieced it back together again.

OMG...what a story!

sweet baby jesus where is book 2 to Transcend. This is one of the most interesting and compelling, complex and fascinating books I've listened to recently. And I have hundreds of books in my library. So glad I found this book.
As soon as I started listening I could not stop and was hooked. I did a marathon to finish book 1 and it was awesome.
Jewel E. Ann has got me on pins and needles for the conclusion. I never read the hard copy but might have to purchase book 2 to satisfy my immediate need for the series conclusion since it's not on audible yet.
Andi Arndt roped me into this book with her wonderful words, angst, sincerity, passion and all the feels.
I absolutely can't wait for the conclusion. I need it badly like a junkie needs their fix. So good thanks to Andi.
Not that Stephen Dexter isn't good, but Andi is just better at these emotional stories. She is by far the queen of audible to me. Pleeaasseee bring book 2 to audible. And soon!!!!

hard to deal with the angst and now cliff hanger.

Don't know whether to cry or be mad with this ending. Afraid to get the next book, afraid of what the rest of the story will lead to. Will I be able to not do it though? Ugh. Love the narrator and the book though. But it stressed me out.

OMG I need book 2!!!! SO GOOD!!

Wow, let me start with this… I have not been SO happy with a series in a long time, and this one seriously has won me over in every way!!!

Okay book one.. I was so torn! Is it a love triangle? Poor Swazi!(BTW, that name?!! YASS!!) I feel for her so much! Her life has been so confusing and it all led up to this point where she meets Nate and everything turns upside down in her life. She is trying so hard to hold on to the love of her life Griffin (whom I freaking LOVE!!!) but she is having all these confusing feelings for Nate the no one understands… you MUST get this book to see what I am talking about… SO SO SO good!

The narration spot freaking ON!!!! Would not change a thing!! <3

This was my first story by Jewel E Ann..

Loved that this story was unique and different in a great way. She goes outside the box to bring her couple on an epic journey. Her stories stand out from the rest. Love her writing style.

Great cast of Characters

It isn't easy to review an Jewel E. Ann book without spoilers. What I can say is this is a very unique story line. The cliffhanger ending has me crazy for the next book.
So many feelings in this book. You don't just read a Jewel E. Ann book you devour it. Her stories always make you question facts as you know them. This book in particular had me reading between the lines. Now to wait for book 2 to see if any of my theories pan out. AWESOME READ!!!! The audio is very well done.
