Beyond Innocence (Beyond #6)
Kit Rocha / May 20, 2015 / $4.99 digital
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.
With each new book in Kit Rocha’s post-apocalyptic erotic romance Beyond series, I fall more in love with Sector Four. I’ve loved seeing the way couples come together over time in this world, and that the timing always feels right. Beyond Innocence is no exception there.
Like the other full-length novels in this series, the ongoing arc is expanded and the big relationships get deeper. Before Kit Rocha's Beyond Innocence, we mostly saw Jared through Ace’s eyes. They are unofficial brothers. Jared continued servicing the bored women of Eden when Ace quit prostitution. We’ve seen them drinking before, and Ace’s continued pleas to get Jared to join the O’Kanes. It isn’t that simple for Jared.
We’ve also seen some sexual chemistry between these two before Ace finally found his soulmates in Rachel and Cruz. There’s still a sizzle there—more on that in a bit—but Jared is finally unraveled by Lili.
