Kit Rocha handles the ménage a trios flawlessly. Brimming with passion, angst and intensity, BEYOND JEALOUSY will leave readers out of breath and begging for more. ~ Under the Covers

The Beyond series by Kit Rocha has become one of my all-time favourite series. With its gritty dystopian world and larger-than-life characters, Rocha has created an elite gang that I believe many readers would love to be a part of.

BEYOND JEALOUSLY, the fourth book in the series has been a book that I’ve been looking forward to since book one. If you’re followed the series religiously then you know of Ace and his Playgirl ways. You also know of Rachel and her work she does with the O’Kanes, but there wasn’t much information on Cruz until now.

Naturally, as Ace is my favourite character behind Dallas, I was looking forward to this book. However, Ace isn’t quite the easy-going seductive bastard he usually is in this one. Rocha digs deep – very, very deep and we get a far more emotional side to Ace. As a person who whored his way through a lot of his life, a lot of this self-respect has diminished through the years. He doesn’t believe himself worthy to be love by a person – let alone two.

When Rachel and Cruz bring him into their relationship, there is always something standing in the way. Ace doesn’t allow them in and it frustrates Rachel and Cruz as much as it will frustrate the reader. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting the level of emotion that Rocha brought to this book. I expected balls-to-the wall sex when it came to Ace, but even though the erotic element is very much there in this book, there’s also great internal angst and sexual conflict as well.

For me, BEYOND JEALOUSY breezed at a 4 star rating for most of the book. However, the last 10% or so really changed my opinion. For a true threesome to work, I needed Cruz and Ace to fall in line with each other. Yes, Rachel is as much a part of this as any of them, but the conflict really lay between Cruz and Ace. When the fight came, I knew that this was where the story was going to turn for me. Not only did it address the conflict head on, but it also showcased the passion they have for each other as well. After all, I’m sure you all know I’m not opposed to M/M lovin’ at all.

After that glorious turn, Rocha hits readers with another great ending that almost had me panicking. When you feel so much for side characters in a book, that’s when you know you’ve done a great job with characterization and development. I’m definitely looking forward to Trix’s story next!

What was most surprising for me was actually Cruz. I never thought much about him until now. The way he cares for Ace and Rachel, the sense of authority he takes in the bedroom, and everything he does for the O’Kane gang made me see him in a new light. I ended up LOVING him just as much as Ace. And that’s hard to do especially when it happened all in one book.

Kit Rocha handles the ménage a trios flawlessly. Brimming with passion, angst and intensity, BEYOND JEALOUSY will leave readers out of breath and begging for more. After this, I’m sure every girl would want to be Rachel in this hot man sandwich.

beyond jealously

She’s been looking for the perfect man. She found two. 

When Rachel Riley sacrificed a life in Eden to protect the O’Kanes, she earned her place in the powerful Sector Four gang. But the former crime princess is tired of being everyone’s sweet little sister . It’s time for her to get wild, to embrace her fantasies as only an O’Kane can—with a delicious exiled soldier and the gang’s wickedly sinful tattoo artist.

A saint… 

Lorenzo Cruz is a warrior, taught by his commanding officers in Eden that involvement equals distraction. Emotion is a liability, and desire a sin. In Sector Four, he finds decadence, shameless sex—and his own dark urges. No battle strategy prepared him for how Rachel makes his heart race…or the way his rival for her affections sets his blood on fire.

…and a sinner. 

Ace Santana has a dirty reputation and a mind to match, especially where his new lovers are concerned. He’s eager to help Cruz embrace his dominant side, and to explore the lines between pleasure and pain with Rachel. But corrupting them quickly becomes an obsession, a need he can’t deny—and a love he never imagined.

Three hearts on the line means a hundred ways their ménage a trois could go wrong. After all, even O’Kanes do forever two-by-two. One of them could be the missing piece that makes them all whole…or a temporary diversion destined for a broken heart.

About Kit Rocha

Once upon a time, two best friends decided to write paranormal romance. And while that was awesome, they also sometimes wanted to write insanely dirty stuff that wasn’t paranormal at all. This is that stuff.

Kit Rocha is the dystopian-erotic-romance writing alter-ego of writing duo Moira Rogers.

Loved this book and love this series.

My vices are new books, it’s rare for me to buy anything used unless the author is new to me and has a backlist I can find in my local independent book store. So here’s hoping I can find some of the books off your list. Unless I get lucky, here’s hoping for great luck. 😉

Timitra

Signed books are on the top of my list but I understand posting costs are ridiculous so free ebooks are good as well. 😉

P.S. I think a flask sounds so cool. I’ve never seen that given away as swag before.

Australia are appearing at their 3rd consecutive World Cup finals and their fourth general, but the Socceroos head to Brazil with modest anticipations. They struggled to encourage in Asian qualifying underneath German mentor Holger Osieck, successful just three of eight matches in their final team, and he was fired after a 6- pleasant defeat to France in Oct. He has been changed by Postecoglou, a Greek-born Australian who previously took Brisbane Roar to consecutive A-League titles and who will hope for a respectable exhibiting in Brazil just before major the team in the 2015 Asian Cup on home soil.
