“You got your saint Rae. Just… promise me you need a sinner too.”
This is my favorite guilty pleasure – curling up with the men and women of sector Four and letting all my sexual fantasies come true 😉 If you’ve read this series before then you know how downright decadent the O’Kanes are. If you haven’t, what in the hell are you waiting for?!
Beyond Jealousy is the story of Ace, Cruz and Rachel. Ace and Rachel had been a thing, well, kind of, until Ace screwed it up and Rachel landed onto Cruz’s lap. But recently Ace and Cruz have decided to got at it together, for as long as there’s a woman between them. And it’s getting messy… feelings for each other are getting in the way and of course… there’s the woman they both want – Rachel.
I hardly ever read menage stories but man was this one hot! The O’Kanes are known to dirty it up in orgies like you’re never seen, or read before. Yet as much as they have all the sexual freedom they could get, they always do their forevers in twos. So this threesome was going to be the first, if they could do it right, that is.
I was so excited when I got the book. It’s Dystopian Erotica and there is vivid description of the dystopian world, but let’s be honest, I’m mostly addicted to the smut. Calling this steamy is an understatement, it’s hot as hell. And you know what? Kit Rocha just jumped right into it. I hadn’t gotten far before Ace, Cruz and Rachel were a mass of tangled limbs on a bed. The heat? Off the charts!
But while I loved those scenes, I also loved the emotional part of their story too. Ace doesn’t feel worthy for Rachel and Cruz. He’s convinced that they only need him for sex and that as soon as they’re done with the adventure, they’ll kick him out and remain a pair.
“You’re sweet and you’re perfect and Cruz is in love with you. You’re both too good for the likes of me…”
I seriously hurt for him. We get more of his back story as a whore in Eden and for once we see more than the cocky, sexy tattoo artist. We see Alexander Santana, the kind of man who’ll see the good in everyone and nothing in himself. He’s convinced that the only reason a woman would want him is for sex, so as much as he wants both Cruz and Rachel, he can’t imagine why they would ever want him… need him. And he’s convinced that he’ll be the one left with a broken heart.
Ace fucked up. It was what he did, who he was. When he detonated everything they’d build together, Cruz would protect Rachel. Rachel would protect Cruz. No one would protect Ace.
And while they all have their insecurities, his were the worst. And it wasn’t just that they wouldn’t find him worth keeping or loving, but he also has his worries that the only reason Cruz would agree to their threesome is to get to Rachel, but never because he also loves Ace.
It couldn’t be real. None of this could. Not Cruz wanting them both – wanting to share and be shared.
I loved their story. The first 60 percent was spent fanning myself because these three really go at it. And the last 20 percent I had tears in my eyes.
I’d like to thank the author for providing this ARC for my review.
