Tour Stop Beyond Jealousy, Beyond series by Kit Rocha

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.



I received as an ARC for an honest review, and let me tell you, I'm still trying to figure out how to review this...

The ladies of Kit Rocha have outdone themselves. I'm really loving the little POV' s they're doing. It is added torture to what's coming up next. 

This is a series that I LOVE to try and piece together. I even have a "story board" I've created to try and keep it all together , so I can add pieces of the puzzle as I go and try to figure out what is coming next. I got a lot of pieces out of this book, and  I am ITCHING to get them on the board. 

Now, as far as the story goes. It's hotter than ever and angstier than ever! There's an outlining of darkness surrounding this book, and with good reason. There's lots of action as well, believe me, you WON'T be disappointed!!


Ace. Rachel. Cruz. It’s been a long time coming!

We meet all three early in the series; we also get snippets of them. We get Ace, the wild one who likes tagging along and participating in anything that is lewd and fun in a dirty way. Rachel is the quiet one, it takes time for her to do daring things but she gets there and she takes the bull by its horns. Cruz was the Soldier, silent but he quickly became part of the family, fighting in the cage, winning. 

All three of them are connected from the beginning. Rachel and Ace. Rachel and Cruz. Cruz and Ace. And finally, in the fourth installment we get all three of them, together. Takes them a while, a pretty rough journey to get there but they do. And when they do… They do it O’Kane style.

We get to see so many things in this part! We get clues into further stories - *cough* Maddox *cough* - and we meet new characters but also get to hang out with old favorites.

Rachel. She grew up in a shadier part of Eden, a part not acknowledged by many. She grew up having street smarts but she was loved by her family. She found a new one with the O’Kanes.

Ace didn’t have it as good as her. Nor Cruz. Both of them had had it rough and they did their best to survive, given the circumstances. 

Ace broke my damn heart. I wanted to shout at him, tell him he deserves what Rachel and Cruz are offering him and to bitch-slap him. But I got it. I got him. 

We spark, angel. We spark so bright, and I always thought I’d woo you nice and slow and you’d adore me. But you only ever see the worst in me, and there’s so much worst to see.

You think I know what to do with a woman’s heart?

You got your saint, Rae. Just… promise me you need a sinner, too.”

Cruz surprised me and he also got me to blush a few times and to fan myself. This guy has many layers I was only happy to peel off. Underneath it all is the real Lorenzo Cruz.

Cruz met her eyes, held them. There was a wild sort of hunger there, an intensity that had seemed closer to the surface lately.

Cruz slipped his hand free of her pants. “I want both of you in my bed. Naked.”

“Rachel and Ace were his. If that meant razing everything in his path, it would be worth it. As long as they were alive. As long as they were safe.”

And since I mentioned my favorite O’Kane, Maddox, I just have to say that I got a few good doses of him – I was really counting on it. But what I read and found out not only stunned me but broke my damn heart. I got glimpses into the real Maddox. Including his real name. [I won’t tell, you’ll have to read to find out!] But after reading about him? I felt gutted. Crushed. Kaput. I had a bad feeling and then what I was afraid of happened, my heart stopped then I was all, ‘No, no, no, no’ and after breathing a little bit easier, wham! I cried. And I cried hard. I still get teary-eyed when I remember. 

Mad hated the dark. He hated the silence of it, the emptiness.”

“Mad was oblivious, his bare, bruised chest heaving with every breath, his dark eyes seeing nothing.”

Another bam? Towards the end. I held my breath and again, wiped away the tears but oh, everything works out and you breathe easy.

You two are all the colors I’ve been missing,” Ace whispered, closing his eyes. “I’m going to make gorgeous fucking art with you.”

But the ending left me wanting more and wanting it now. But luckily Bree and Donna took mercy on us and before the next book is out, we’ll be getting a novella. 

As always, hot sex, Fight Night, blowing things up, street brawl because after all, Dallas O’Kane has to remind us he still has it and that he’s a freaking King and leader. 

“Dallas O’Kane had patience… until he didn’t. And then he burned shit to the ground.”

“Family is loyalty. That’s what being an O’Kane means.”

P.S. This has been THE BEST so far! Can’t wait for more. O’Kane for life.

***ARC received in exchange of honest review***

When a friend recommended the Kit Rocha books and said I would like them she was wrong, I ADORE them. I enjoyed Shame, loved Control, adored Pain and thought nothing would top that one for me . Well Jealousy has tied in first position!!!!!!!

Ace and his fine ass, his dirty dirty mouth and mind ~ the sinner captured me from start to finish .
The surprise of the book was Cruz, I liked him yet expected to not care one way or the other. I thought he would be the third wheel to Ace and Rachel but he's as integral to the triangle as the other two - the rock for them to stand on. There was a sweetness to the relationship between the three of them that was unexpected, it tugged at the heartstrings and tore them apart at points. It's hot as fuck,  panty tsunami time as all the Beyond books are and never disappoint.
The ending left me with my jaw on the floor, totally did not see that coming and as Jealousy was one of my most anticipated reads for Spring 'Addiction' is now one of my most anticipated for the later part of this year!!!
This series just keeps getting better and better with every outing, the world & characters they have created draws you in and you never want to leave............... ~ I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review ~

I think I am becoming a slut amongst the OKane men;  first I was Marked by Bren,  but know Im kicking him to the curve.  After reading Beyond Jealousy, I will always be Marked by ACE.  This story has been building since Antonio Cruz was ran out of Eden.  First he falls for Rachel and then he does the unimaginable, he falls for Alexander (Ace) Santana, also.

This book was my favorite so far in the series, I was only getting little snippets of Ace every now and then, but damn, I see why it has taken so long for us to get Aces complicated story.  OKanes have a certain way of life, orgies are the normal but a triad?  Kit Rocha has written us 3 people that cannot be complete unless they are together.  Cruz and Ace are broken in their own ways, and Rachel is the healer of their souls.  Through all the ups, downs and near fatality they found that they can be repaired.

I was honored to receive ARC for my honest opinion.
O’Kane for Life


This book is absolutely positively my favorite of the series.  

-She'd turned into a creeper, and it was all Ace's fault.-

I think that line was written about me.

All of the Beyond Series books are full of unique relationships and wild sex, but this one stands out even in a series of stand outs.

-She'd seen him like this before–you couldn't be an O'Kane and not know what everyone looked like, naked and aroused–but never hot and hard and waiting for her.-  

First off we have Ace, Cruz and Rachel-all are O'Kane and all have a "thing" for each other.  

Rachel is the daughter of a bootlegger.  She grew up in Eden, but she's kind of an in-between.  She isn't a full-on naturally wild woman like comes to mind with the O'Kanes, and she isn't a pre-women's lib type like the ones in Eden.  What she is however is unguarded.

Cruz is a natural protector.   He has been a soldier since birth and is not accustomed to the debauchery that takes place in Sector Four.  He second guesses his feelings and isn't sure which he should act upon because the choice was never acceptable before.

Ace was a prostitute to the rich and famous, boy candy/man candy growing up and until he joined the O'Kanes.  He has always been an artist and now makes his way doing the best tattoos in all of the post-Flare world, as far as I can surmise.  Ace makes everything into a joke.  He is a perfect example of the "sad clown" never letting anyone know of his pain.

-That was Ace's purpose–pulling truth from darkness and giving it form.-

  All three are self-sacrificing when he comes to those they love.
And all three love each other.  Together they make beauty, bound ribbon and chains.

So of course (I mean this is a book from the Beyond Series) there are super sexy off the charts sex scenes.  

-"I'll be a perfect gentleman. Just clit-sucking and jerking off, no funny business."

-"Is that one of them? The two of us fucking?"
"Two hot guys, rolling around naked? Hell, yes."-

But can three together make it work?

-"O'Kanes don't fight each other, not outside those steel bars.  We fight, we fall."-

-"You two are all the colors I've been missing."

We also learn so much more about the goings on of the state of the Sectors and Eden.  We see more of all the characters we have already met and new ones.  We get wonderful background and insight.  This is definitely the best book of the series so far.  And it leaves you waiting for more.

-O'Kane for life–that was the promise, the oath, but it didn't make things effortless or easy.–

***ARC was given by author for an honest review***

Kit Rocha is actually two people—Bree & Donna, best friends who are living the dream. They get paid to work in their pajamas, talk on the phone, and write down all the stories they used to make up in their heads.
Beyond Shame was their first dystopian erotic romance. They also write paranormal romance as Moira Rogers. You can find them on the web at the following places:

Moira Rogers

(book 1)

All Noelle Cunningham has ever wanted is a life beyond–beyond the walls of Eden, where only the righteous are allowed to remain, and beyond her stiflingly restrictive existence as a councilman’s daughter. But only ruins lie outside the City, remnants of a society destroyed by solar storms decades earlier.
The sectors surrounding Eden house the corrupt, the criminal–men like Jasper McCray, bootlegger and cage fighter. Jas clawed his way up from nothing to stand at the right hand of Sector Four’s ruthless leader, and he’ll defend the O’Kane gang with his life. But no fight ever prepared him for the exiled City girl who falls at his feet.
Her innocence is undeniable, but so is their intense sexual attraction, and soon they’re crossing every boundary Noelle barely knew she had. But if she wants to belong to Jas, first she’ll have to open herself to a world where passion is power, and freedom is found in submission.

She refuses to be owned.
Alexa Parrino escaped a life of servitude and survived danger on the streets to become one of the most trusted, influential people in Sector Four, where the O’Kanes rule with a hedonistic but iron fist. Lex has been at the top for years, and there’s almost nothing she wouldn’t do for the gang…and for its leader. Lie, steal, kill—but she bows to no one, not even Dallas O’Kane.
He’ll settle for nothing less.
Dallas fought long and hard to carve a slice of order out of the chaos of the sectors. Dangers both large and small threaten his people, but it’s nothing he can’t handle. His liquor business is flourishing, and new opportunities fuel his ambition. Lex could help him expand his empire, something he wants almost as much as he wants her. And no one says no to the king of Sector Four.
Falling into bed is easy, but their sexual games are anything but casual. Attraction quickly turns to obsession, and their careful dance of heady dominance and sweet submission uncovers a need so deep, so strong, it could crush them both.  Kobo  ARe Barnes&Noble  Smashwords

BEYOND PAIN (book 3)
A woman with no future…
Live fast, die young–anything else is a fantasy for Six. She’s endured the worst the sectors had to throw at her, but falling in with Dallas O’Kane’s Sector Four gang lands her in a whole new world of danger. They’re completely open about everything, including their sexuality–but she hasn’t survived this long by making herself vulnerable. Especially not to men as dominant as Brendan Donnelly.
A man without a past…
Bren is a killer, trained in Eden and thrown to the sectors. His one outlet is pain, in the cage and in the bedroom, and emotion is a luxury he can’t afford–until he meets Six. Protecting her soothes him, but it isn’t enough. Her hunger for touch sparks a journey of erotic discovery where anything goes–voyeurism, flogging, rough sex. He has only one rule: he won’t share her.
In Bren’s arms, Six is finally free to let go. But his obsession with the man who made him a monster could destroy the fragile connection they’ve forged, and cost him the one thing that makes him feel human–her love.  Kobo  ARe Barnes&Noble  Smashwords
