|This month my name is Mary. My name is different every month—Brandy, Honey, Amy…sometimes Joe doesn’t even bother to ask—but he never fails to arouse me with his body, his mouth, his touch, no matter what I’m called or where he picks me up. The sex is always amazing, always leaves me itching for more in those long weeks until I see him again.My real name is Sadie, and once a month over lunch Joe tells me about his latest conquest. But what Joe doesn’t know is that, in my mind, I’m the star of every X-rated one-night stand he has revealed to me, or that I’m practically obsessed with our imaginary sex life. I know it’s wrong. I know my husband wouldn’t understand. But I can’t stop. Not yet.|
When I heard about this book I loved the idea behind it and was looking forward to reading it. (And yes I read other reviews to find out more about it)
But when I finally started I found that I could not work with the way it was written – so sorry….
|Who could ever love such a beast?…
Eric Morris is at the top of his game as the CEO of Morris Talent. One of the world’s premier agencies for models to strut their stuff. He really has it all: the job, the money, women, the looks…but when he is scarred for life in a horrible motorcycle accident his world crashes around him. How can someone, who is a king in the world of beauty be so hideously scarred? Eric begins to shut out the world, finding comfort in being locked away in his home and out of the public eye that he loved so much. When Elle Davis comes into his life as an assistant, she shows Eric that there’s more to life than money, motorcycles, and model…but is it too late for Eric?
It was a DNF for me the characters were superficial and I really could not care for the story. I promise to try reading it at a later point again but for now it is what it is. And while I am preparing this post I saw that the book has been released 4 years ago and there is not even a cover yet or hardly any notice by other readers – which really makes me wonder (without being rude)
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.
I wasn’t really keen on reading book six in this series. I was very tempted to skip it but a) I don’t like skipping books and b) as there is an ongoing story throughout each book there were some important things that I missed out on. I always came back to this book on my reading shelf but each time I chickened out but now that this beauty has been released
I just knew that I had to read it even if I had the feeling that I wouldn’t like it as much as the others which was confirmed once I finished the book.
My verdict is that it isn’t utter shite but it isn’t bloody epic either. But I still give it 3 ‘Us’ Stars.
My main issues were that in the other books we only got glimpses of Jared and I wanted no needed to see more of him. He was a wildcard for me. Turns out he is pretty darn good. He has a certain vulnerability about him that makes him very attractive. He appears to be cultured but deep down he has always protected himself emotionally from his job. He is a seducer of the women of Eden with pillow talk he has gathered a lot of information to benefit the O’Kanes.
I nearly stuck needles in my eyes when I read how Lilli was acting but given the chance and reading the things that she went through made me be more lenient on her. She was thrust into a world that she didn’t understand. There were no personal gains for the O’Kanes and Lilli learnt that it was always a give and take. More give than take. We all do what we have to survive. She has no clue about sex, emotions, friendship or love. All she ever was meant to be was a trophy wife.
Lilli Fleming, well what is there to say about Lilli apart from that:
“She shot a guard in the face and walked out of Five. In a virginal nightgown and a fucking fur coat covered in blood.”
At one of the famous O’Kane parties they meet.
“I’m Lilli,” she said instead,
“I know who you are.”
“Is that a problem? Who I am?” In response, he flashed her his naked wrists, clearly visible beneath the rolled up sleeves of his shirt. “It doesn’t matter what I think.”
Like recognises like.
“I see you.” “Yes” He dropped a kiss to her collarbone. “You do.”
Jared is turning into a spy for the O’Kanes and will be opening an underground club. But he is trying to keep it from Lilli but in the end he tells her the truth. There are a lot of
I liked them together they have chemistry and there are some hot scenes together.
He froze and shook his head. “Take them off.” “What?” “You heard me, Miss Lilli.” His voice was low, steady and wrapped an unmistakeable command. “Take off your fucking panties.”
They both came to a self-discovery of a sorts.
Lilli barely understood love, but she already knew two things- it would be dangerously easy to fall in love with Jared, and the broken heart would be worth it.
With Lilli, he didn’t have to be perfect. He just had to be Jared.
The ending was the best part of the book and no not because it finished because Lilli finally became someone strong. Jared is arrested in Eden and taken to be tortured. Not really for information by a council man whose wife regularly visited Jared as a seducer. Although it was under the pretence that he was a spy. But the end result worked for everyone, even the councilman that was in the O’Kanes pocket.
“He wasn’t supposed to send anyone,” he choked out. “And he sent you?” “No one sent me.”
“They never would have asked, but they didn’t have to. You were mine to save not theirs.”
Jared and Lilli run the underground club together now.
I couldn’t give it more than 3 stars as not a lot happened between Lilli and Jared in comparison to the other books. I feel as if this is more a filler than anything else as there was more of the political building and moving in a direction to make Eden fall to its knees. I also wonder when you have been doping yourself up with all types of medications for at least six years and your stash was running out or gone, wouldn’t you get withdrawal symptoms? Wouldn’t you be craving the meds?
It seems that Lilli had no problems whatsoever. I don’t think that playing the piano and cooking can actually cure with that problem.
Even having Rachel, Cruz and Ace back in this book and all the naughty things that they got up to didn’t help very much either.
I can’t wait for Jeni and Hawk to get a book. I really hope that they get one.
But those two letters changed everything.
It was impossible to predict the impact I would have on the life of the only woman I’d ever truly loved. No way to know that I would result in her ruin.
I’d suffer for eternity with the knowledge that it was me who brought devastation to her doorstep.
Though I deserved the anguish I felt, to see her suffer was unacceptable.
I would fix this.
Somehow I would prove to her that I wasn’t the monster she thought I was.
Even if it meant becoming a monster in order to make that happen.
Love is just a word until someone enters your life and gives it meaning.
SPOILER FREE – well I will try. But I could quote the shite out of this book it was that bloody brilliant. I highlighted so much. Thinking oh that is good and oh I can use that alas I can’t or maybe I will. Read on to find out.
I was so pissed at the end of book one that the only questions that came to mind were.
Was it worth saying no, Marco? Was it? What was worth so much for that outcome? Why would you do that?
I’d burn this whole cesspool of a city to the ground until I’d exacted revenge on all of them. Every. Single. Fucking. One.
To the heroine – right along with you there sweetheart. Where is my Samurai sword and oh give me a gun and we’ll do a lot of damage.
Yes this is another damn dear letter
May I call you Elisabeth? Yes/No? Well I’m going to anyway. To answer your question.
Was it possible to write about an inherently good person doing bad things and have readers root for her?
Yes Elisabeth you did. Every step of the way I was rooting for the heroine. I’m still rooting for her now. And to be honest I think that this is one heroine that I won’t forget this year. On top of that you made me like Marco, how dare you! After what happened in the first book how could you take away the hate I had for him. I needed him to pay for Brandi more than anyone else. My world was flipped upside down.
Your very irritated fan Kate.
I was also so nervous to start this book. With questions of will I like this book? Will it be on par with the first one? Can it be topped? What if I’m devastated with the outcome and I can’t give it the stars that they deserve. But my fears were taken from me.
4.5 ‘Anger and frustration. Hurt and sorrow. Love and loss’ Stars
This book picks up exactly where the first one stopped.
We find out Brandi’s real name.
“Emily I whispered. Recognition lit his eyes, swallowed swiftly by gratification. He knew the significance of what I’d given him. “My real name is Emily Ross.”
The unimaginable has happened, worlds have broken down only to collide at a velocity that neither MC ever saw coming. It comes down to trust and in the end trusting the wrong people.
It was then that comprehension dawned. The expression on her face…it wasn’t just the pain […] It was betrayal.
For the love of Marco Valenti I didn’t see that coming. Marco, Marco, Marco what have you gotten yourself into?
Both characters felt betrayal, the lies, the anger the despair the isolation. It’s true what they say that there is a fine line between love and hate.
“You don’t hate me, Tesoro. You hate the fact that you still want me, and I’m going to prove it to you.”
I’d let her know that she was mine regardless of who she fucked. […….] She wouldn’t be able to sleep with another man without finding them lacking.
And I was on that journey with them every step of the way. What they felt I felt.
Marco becomes a different man with more edge and hardness to him but those kind of things shape a person. We see a visible and believable change in him.
The metamorphis from man to monster occurred in that precise moment.
They each change through what they experienced. Marco for the better in my opinion but Emily? Not so much. Revenge and vengeance consume them both and they each deal with it differently.
“Careful, Cara. The revenge you seek may very well be your destruction.”
But at the same time the unwanted. Reality kicks in. Blame is laid at the feet of others or one’s self.
It would be a fair trade for my failure to protect […….] from the wolf with a lover’s tongue.
They deal with losing what they lost and figuring out how they could get it back
For one brief moment, I’d known true happiness…. Even if it had been a lie.
All I wanted was for this woman to love me as she had for a brief moment in time.
Marco did anything to earn back what he had but lost.
There was only one person’s forgiveness I longed for, and I wasn’t sure I’d ever manage to get it. Some things just weren’t worthy of the forgiveness.
But with all Emily’s feelings impacting him he never gave up and he was strong and always knew to say the right thing.
“Amore mio, some rocks turn to dust under pressure. You have transformed into a diamond.”
There are so many emotions running through me right now that it is hard to process them all at once. You have to read the first book to enjoy this one. Let me just get one thing straight though. This book is outstanding. I felt as if I read a completely different book to the first one. Ms. Grace is one talented cookie. It is rare that with a two part book you can get so many different facets at times I felt as if it was written by someone else that is how good she is.
I had one seed left that I was keeping close to me truly with the hope of what I wanted to be true. At the worst of times Ms. Grace managed to coax a smile out of me.
And then the story twists and turns again. WTF? I didn’t see that coming.
My heart cracked a bit because she was on a downward spiral and some of the things that she did. They each lash out at one another and say some truly horrible things.
With space and time and slowly acquainting one another again. With trust built etc. HE proved his worth. Emily not as much as Marco but she did as well.
“I love you Marco Valenti. Truth is, I never stopped. And I never will.”
I realised that sometimes dreams don’t come in the form you thought they would. It doesn’t make them any less amazing. The universe just knew what you needed better than you did.
Spoilers & me the nit-picker.
So a small logical okay a major logical part of me thought stop people think about what you are doing and the pieces that are right in reach but they didn’t seem to grasp until… praise the Lord it then hit Marco.
This is what bothered me. There was a scene where Brandi thought and walked in on an awkward situation with Alexa. Nothing happened. She asks if something happened and Marco denied it vehemently but the amount of times that Brandi threw it in his face with what she was doing. Puhlease…. Although I did like the reversed roles where the woman got to lash out in that respect. I didn’t completely feel that Emily worked through her emotions of revenge when it came to the twist being revealed.
If push came to shove how far would you go it? To make those pay for what they did.

Jenny Fitzgerald’s love life is at a definite low. Her only potential date in sight is her annoying and creepy coworker, Evan—until a stunning man appears before her like a gift from some kindly sex god. Who is she to turn down what’s offered to her on a hunky blond platter?
Will and Jenny’s friendship develops as their hunger grows into love. Meanwhile, a jealous Evan watches, his rage building until it explodes in a brutal act of violence that tears Jenny’s life apart. Will struggles to help her rebuild her courage and sense of self as his own demons and fragile memories threaten their chance at happiness—but perhaps they can learn to heal each other.
Reader Advisory: This book contains a realistic, violent near-rape scene.
Women loathed me without even knowing my name. Men coveted the very idea of me.
Escort. Call girl. Prostitute. Hooker. Whore.
I’d heard it all. Done it all.
Over the years I’d felt a lot of things about my occupation…but not regret–never regret. I had my reasons for doing what I did and nothing and no one had ever made me question them.
UNTIL MARCO VALENTI.
He’d changed me and I’d naively fed into the fairy tale.
But Marco wasn’t my Prince Charming. He had secrets of his own. Secrets that would eventually rip away everything I held dear.
May I call you Elisabeth? Yes/No? Well I’m going to anyway. To answer your question.
Was it possible to write about an inherently good person doing bad things and have readers root for her?
Yes Elisabeth you did. Every step of the way I was rooting for the heroine. I’m still rooting for her now. And to be honest I think that this is one heroine that I won’t forget this year.
4’This ain’t Pretty Woman peeps’ Stars.
Experience the life on an escort in Las Vegas. Or more than likely Brandi’s life as an escort in Las Vegas. We first meet Brandi with a john and get a feel for her character. I shall only refer to her as Brandi in this book as we don’t find out her real name to the very end. This aspect of the book I loved.
She is real she doesn’t make herself out to be anything that she isn’t. She is candid about her job.
Yes I let them use my body. But I used them, too. I took their money, and in return I fulfilled their deepest fantasies.
She is funny, smart and loyal and will go above and beyond for those that she loves and this is where I was caught and captivated. We find out why she does what she does. She doesn’t have daddy issues or a drug problem. It is unconditional love that makes her do the things that she does.
I. Don’t. Judge. You. Quite the opposite I understand you. Wouldn’t you do anything for your child? We see what her evenings are like and what her days consist of how she looks after her son, Daniel who has muscle dystrophy. A single mother with a special needs kid. Each interaction that she had with her son only solidified the compassion I felt for Brandi.
I personally really liked Brandi. I don’t know how I would have dealt with Brandi’s profession but I wanted to be her friend. I didn’t want her to be alone. I wanted her to share her pain, her hopes and her dreams. What a ride, what an emotional rollercoaster.
This book is outstanding, it is riveting and an engaging read. I laughed at the GFE/PSE, I cried. All the emotional ques set by the author where met to my emotional responses.
The Hero of the book is Marco Valenti. He is a new john for Brandi and their first encounter is unique. It is a battle of the wills but one thing is for sure Brandi is most likely to fail all three escort rules epically.
Somehow my body knew what I didn’t already. Marco Valenti would be the springboard in my life that caused everything to change.
Marco is smooth, intelligent, and powerful combined with his Adonis good looks and being rich and last but not least let’s not forget the Italian accent. He is lethal for any woman. Even the White Witch from Narnia would drop her panties for him.
Marco books Brandi and what started out as a one-time booking turned into a lot more. But Marco has enemies and they have set their sight on Brandi to get what they want from him. He is possessive and obsessed and will do anything for Brandi. He is very alpha but it doesn’t border on treating Brandi like an object. And other men touching her? No.
“I didn’t want his hands on me.” My breath was shallow as I admitted what I’d been trying so hard to keep hidden.
“Why?” His dark eyes were searching as he looked down upon me. “Because they weren’t yours.”
This is where it got difficult for me where I would have liked to have seen his POV because although his character is three dimensional I felt disconnected to him because I didn’t get enough insight to how he ticked. But he accepts her life, her job, her son.
They form a tight relationship I can’t really say what the time span is in how long they knew one another. They were good together. They have chemistry.
“I knew we would be amazing together.” I didn’t admit it to him, but I’d known it too.
I felt as if they could have had a more emotionally connection and although that did happen it happened at the very end and therefore for me it felt rushed. They briefly touch on the demons and the scars that they have. I know why dwell on the past. But at times he is so sweet.
“I see you for who you really are. I don’t look at you and see what you do to make money. I see the woman, the mother, the lover, the friend.”
And then the unthinkable, the unimaginable happens what I never would have really thought Ms. Grace would write and her my heart stopped.
I screamed, the sound of the gunshot reverberating through my head and ripping my soul to shreds. Mine too Brandi, mine too.
And here we see what kind of impact one small word can have.
The eyes of the man I thought loved me bore into me from above, and the realization hits- he is the one responsible.
By the way – I’m still hoping that I’m wrong.
There were some things that niggled at me and apart from that I have nothing negative to say about the book. I also took a gamble with this book as I requested an ARC for the second book and thought, no problem I’ll read the first. All good. Now as Murphy’s Law is my best friend I realized the error of my ways and thought oh shit if you don’t like it then what are you going to do about reading the second one. Well I would have to force myself or skim. Luckily for me I loved this book so it all didn’t backfire on me.
Luckily for me I can go off and read book two.
She’s fought like hell to leave the past behind.
Trix changed her name and her life when she got clean four years ago. Now, she has a new family and a job she loves—tending bar and dancing at the Broken Circle. As an O’Kane, she’s happy, untouchable. Until a nightmare from her old life tears her away from her home and drags her back to Hell—also known as Sector Five.
He’s still living—and dying—in it.
Losing Trix was the kick in the head Finn needed to get sober, but working as an enforcer for a man he hates is slowly crushing his soul. The only thing that keeps him going is his determination to destroy Sector Five from the inside. Then Trix comes back into his life—alive, in danger—and nothing else matters.
Getting her home could be a suicide mission. The only thing deadlier is the old spark that flares to life between them. Soon, Finn and Trix are battling the one addiction neither of them ever managed to kick—each other. And it could cost them everything.
Now, I probably say this every single time that I read one of the Beyond books that it is my favorite. But this is by far the best one. Not only due to the fact that Kit Rocha can always get me out of my book funk but she delivers a book full of love, passion, suspense and a scorching level of heat that will melt your panties. Happy days, ladies. 4 “Remember what you promised me” Stars.
It is also very surprising for me anyway that the each book gets better and better. That the development of the Sectors as well as the dystopian world that has been created as well as the plots and twists that are included. I was really anxious that Trix would have to go through the whole drug withdrawal as well.
After reading Beyond Jealousy and coming off my Ace, Cruz and Rachel high. I didn’t want to read this one straight away to realize that it wasn’t on par with the others. This book was also very touching and emotional and had me with tears in my eyes.
Trix is originally from Sector Five, she clawed herself away from the drugs and left the one thing that meant the world to her behind. That is until she is kidnapped by Dom who was kicked out of Sector Four and the O’Kanes for abusing Trix and running to Mac Fleming the leader of Sector Five. As revenge for blowing up his illegal distilleries.
Finn has always lived in Sector Five and has been an enforcer. For the past four years he has thought Tracy aka Trix to be dead that is until he is called to Mac’s office. What made me like Finn was that he put a bullet through his head for Trix to get her back to Dallas. Fleming’s second in command Logan Beckett is bat shit crazy and a sociopath. He is married to Lili who is as numb as they come and the daughter of Mac Fleming.
I loved that the plot of the story was also based outside of Sector Four. To escape Finn went to Shipp and Ayla. They owed him a favour. Not many live out that way beyond Eden and the Sectors. I would like to see a book with Hawk he intrigues me.
Finn has played an important role throughout the series although I have only realized it till now. What with framing Sector Two for framing the leader of Sector Six.
Trix didn’t want to leave Finn back at the farm. He went back to Four and wasn’t exactly welcomed with open arms. But family does what they can and they did it for Trix to begin with. Finn and Trix get all their ugly shit out in the open and see what they really have without the past in the way. If things hadn’t gone the way they would have then they both would be dead.
“Teach me, Trix. Prove it can be beautiful instead of twisted.”
Don’t get me wrong I like hot n’ steamy in my books but it is nice to see a one on one couple. I like the monogamy of it.
“I want to work these pearls into you again, until you’re on the edge, just like this.”
Their passion is pure and unrestrained.
Tell me this is different,” she begged.
“I don’t have to … You can feel it. You know it in your bones. Nothing’s the same as before.”
Because he wasn’t fighting her anymore. Fighting himself. They were sober, clear-headed, free to do what they wanted – and this was it. More than anything else, more than breath.”
But that there was also the debauchery and the filthiness of all around.
“They were filthy in their own ways. Without shame and without judgement, and it was the most intoxicating fucking thing he’d ever seen. You couldn’t bottle the high that came with loving acceptance. You couldn’t buy it.
You had to earn it.”
He proved his worth for what he did for Amira/Flash and Hanna. Sector Five falls and war is inevitable.
“It’s going to be war, one way or another. Only question is who hits first. And who hits hardest“

One night was all it took. One accident and I could no longer outrun my past. The terror I’d escaped was hot on my trail and the only person I could turn to was the man who’d hurt me the most.
One moment was all it took. One wrong word and she was gone from my life. Fifteen years later, I had a chance to make things right. I could even make Kaylee mine…
If the monster didn’t destroy her first.
I can not go into details because of the spoilers but this book this was completly not the story I expected after reading the Blurb. And unfortunately therefore it was not for me …. I could not get into the characters. So this is really just MY oppinion on the plotline.
It was well written and developed therefore the experience might be totally different for you .

|February 2nd 2018|
|Creep. Freak. Crazy Eyes.
I’ve heard it all.
Over the years, they’ve slammed me with every demeaning name in the book.
Their taunts warped me like a steady stream of poison.
Anger replaced anxiety as I started believing the cruelty spat my way.
Until she showed up and changed everything.
Lennon Bennett is pure innocence—warm sunshine breaking apart my stormy existence.
She’s everything good and maybe I can be too.
For her. With her. Because of her.
Lennon doesn’t know I’m beckoned closer with each breath.
She isn’t aware that I’m completely consumed with her.
It’s become my sole purpose to protect her, by any means necessary.
But if she discovers the depth of my obsession, it will be the end of me.
So, I remain in the shadows.
Waiting. Watching. Wanting.
She’ll be my first. My last. My only.
|According to the dictionary normal is :
conforming to the standard or the common type; usual; not abnormal; regular; natural.
serving to establish a standard.
The same dictionary defines different as :…
not alike in character or quality; distinct in nature; dissimilar:
The two brothers are very different, although they are identical twins.
not identical; separate or distinct:
When I asked for directions, three people gave me three different answers.
Different people told me the same story.
not ordinary; unusual:
I know my new hat is a bit different, but I thought I’d try it out.
I just read Watch Me Follow by Harloe Rae and this book is as different as its leading characters. I never read anything by this author so I wouldn’t know if this is a typical book for her, if its her typical way of writing or if it is also different.
As a firm believer that for every person there is a soulmate out there this story is really just like the winning of a lottery when you can not even remember participating.
We all get accustomed to a certain normal and everything that is outside of these visible lines is not normal to our standard and therefore different. But why do we fear everything that is different? The two leading characters in this story are so fare away from that “normal” that is established that I have to admit it also took me a while to wrap my head around why “sunshine” did not freak out …. or on the other hand why “Ry” always freaked out.
While one would have had a thousand reasons too (gosh I would have freaked out) the other barly had one and still used every chance he got. So yes definitely each one of them needed a very special significant other to be able to fully understand each other.
The essence of the story for me was not in an epic “showdown” (if you are looking for that you will be disappointed) but more between the lines. The point is that you do not need a magical cure to make the leads normal no you just have to re-define normal and change your point of view.
I admit that from my point of view those characters were strange as hell. But they were perfect for each other and the author drew a beautiful picture of vulnerable persons that just needed their soulmates to finally be complete.
And that is something to be jealous of. Having this one person to understand you before you even understand yourself is the most precious gift of all. This Gift lets the question if that relationship or the persons in it are “normal” fade away.
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.
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.
“If I didn’t love you both, this wouldn’t be so fucking hard.”
This book is everything I wanted it to be and so much much much more. 5 I am beyond jealous stars.
Now you see Ms. Rocha did a fantastic job with Beyond Pain and if I had to choose between that book and this one I couldn’t. Beyond Pain is refreshing because they are true to one another. But this Beyond Jealousy is more.
When it comes to love there are no boundaries.
Ace acts like he is happy with life where his scars run deep,he doesn’t have a high opinion of himself when it comes to truly opening up. He was trained to be like Jared and Gia but he isn’t built that way. Ace always tried to push Rachel away. “His illicit allure would wear thin eventually, and the hero always got the girl.”
Since Rachel took the fall for her father she has been an O’Kane and has been accepted. She is fed up with Ace, he ground her heart into dust. Rachel was hot and heavy with Cruz because her loyalties were split.“Separately, the two men drove her crazy, twisted her into knots of longing and thwarted desire. But together –
Together, they’d give her everything.”
Cruz took a fall from Eden and all his ideals changed with that how I felt with wanting Rachel and Ace. “Rachel and Ace had been on a collision course since long before he’d met them. If he didn’t want to end up left behind, he had to be between them when they finally crashed together.”
Ms. Rocha not only displays an eye for the chemistry with the three but it spreads to the whole story. At one point I felt that I was in Gangs of New York film.
