Nose in a Book Reviews: Beyond Innocence by @KitRocha

Displaying header1.jpg

For years, Jared has existed on the fringes of both Eden society and Dallas O’Kane’s Sector Four gang. He travels between these worlds, protected by his money and power–money he earned selling his body, and power that comes from knowing secrets. He’s untouchable—until he starts a new life gathering intelligence for the O’Kanes.

Lili Fleming walked out of Sector Five with a gun, the bloodstained clothes on her back, and an icy determination to survive. She finds herself in a world where people live hard and love harder, and nothing’s more terrifying than how much the O’Kanes wake her up, make her feel—especially Jared.

Emotion is a risk he can’t afford, and a complication she doesn’t need. But neither can resist the lust simmering between them, and the sparks that could either melt the ice around both their hearts…or get them killed. Because the only thing more dangerous than loving an O’Kane is loving a spy.

Another magical O’Kane story. This one is about the resident gigolo, Jared and the queen of Sector 5, Lili Fleming. Jared has been avoiding becoming an O’Kane forever, instead choosing to live symbiotically with the gang. Suddenly we realize he’s actually been working with Dallas as a spy, gathering up intel that can only come when a sexually satisfied lady’s lips become a little too loose with information.

Lili is feeling like an outsider, walking around in a haze of drugs she’d managed to keep after escaping from Sector 5 in the last book. She’s about the run out of her last doses and is frightened to start feeling things again. She’s confused by the passion and satisfaction O’Kane women get from having sex, something she’s never done, but have always been told is more of a chore than pleasurable for the lady. She’s inextricably drawn to Jared, the clean cut and well-dressed prostitute, he reminds her of Sector 5 in its skewed version of perfection, with one glaring exception. He makes her feel safe.

When Jared decides to give up prostitution and grow his spy ring by opening up a bar in the heart of Eden, effectively snubbing the councilman and all they hold dear. By doing this, he suddenly has a price on his head and there’s only one person who will risk her own life to save his.

This story is another amazing piece to the Beyond saga. Each tale draws me in more and more to the messed up, yet fascinating world Kit Rocha has created. If you haven’t read the series, I highly recommend reading them in order to really capture the full experience that is The O’Kanes.

Can’t wait for the next book to see what wild ride they’ll take us on next.
