Title: Beyond Jealousy (Book #4, Beyond Series)
Author: Kit Rocha
Genre: Dystopian Erotic Romance
Release Date: March 17 2014
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.
4.5 “The Saint & The Sinner” Stars
“Too fucking much to lose. So damn much to gain.”
“Help her," Cruz rasped, putting a harsh command behind the words. Giving in to the darkness. "Help her suck my dick.”
Ace's smile was pure, smug victory. “I thought you'd never ask."

If you are wondering whether this deliciously dirty series is for you and question whether you could handle all the sexual freedom and sexy hot goodness that encompasses what the O’Kanes and Sector Four are all about. All I can say is…..
Beyond Jealousy is book four in Kit Rocha’s Beyond series. I highly recommend that you read this series in order as all the books flow into one another with overlapping storylines and world building. The raunchy and gritty dystopian world that this pair of authors has created is unmatched in its creativeness and uniqueness. In this fourth installment the sensually carnal O’Kanes are back in full force attempting to discover who is behind the operation bootlegging O’Kane liquor. Further, the Ace, Cruz and Rachel trio finally comes to the forefront. After tip-toeing around one another for some time now, can they actually make this ménage-a-trois work for the long haul or is it simply an excuse for the trio to embrace their carnal urges temporarily?
Rachel Riley came to the O’Kanes as a sacrificial lamb, giving up a life in Eden with her family. She has worked hard and earned her place among the Sector Four family. Being raised in Eden has left Rachel slightly more sheltered than her sexually free O’Kane family; however, the time has come for Rachel to break free and come out from under the sweet image everyone seems to have thrust upon her. Now that she has started working the stage at The Broken Circle, Rachel is ready to get raw, dirty and sexy. If only a deliciously sinful tattoo artist and a hotter than all heck ex-soldier would help her embrace her fantasies and walk on the wild side with her.
Lorenzo Cruz (aka. Cruz) is an ex-soldier from Eden taught to be a disciplined fighter. He is now a part of the O’Kanes where the way of life is about decadent pleasures of the flesh and fulfilling all your sexual desires. Life in Sector Four is so different from all that Cruz has been conditioned to be but that does not mean he is not ready to relinquish the self-controlled and methodical demeanor he has held onto and give into his own deep and dark urges. The saint is ready to dive into the murky waters of sin with not one, but two, people who simply make him pulsate on overdrive.
Ace Santana is the notorious bad boy and tattoo artist of the O’Kane family who is as well known for his artistic skills as he is for what he can do with his dick - the temperamental artist with a dirty mind and a filthy mouth to match. Everything about Ace screams dirty raunchy sex. However, hidden underneath the sexy lothario’s easy going façade lies a complex man plagued by feelings of unworthiness. Sure he is good enough for giving pleasure, but when it comes down to matters of the heart and love, who would be stupid enough to give him their heart? Ace has tried to stay away from Cruz and Rachel but his need to corrupt the duo has now become something he can’t deny. Ace longs to explore all things sensual with Cruz and Rachel all the while hoping that when what they have eventually comes to an end his heart will be able to withstand the pain.
With Rachel, Ace and Cruz finally deciding to give things a go each one of them must deal with inklings of doubt and their own personal demons that keep trying to creep their way into the fragile and tentative relationship. It is a bumpy road to a happy forever for the three as Cruz and Rachel struggle to make Ace realize that he is worth their love. The three of them each go through moments where they feel like the outsider but they all discover that the feeling of completeness and security they all crave only comes when they are all in it together – three parts make a whole.
“Only if you remember the rules, Santana.”
He chuckled against her temple. “I’ll be a perfect gentleman. Just clit-sucking and jerking off, no funny business.”
This book was hot as hell. Gah! After all, it would not be a Kit Rocha book if you did not get raw and gritty sex. This series seriously brings my inner perv to life like nothing else. Nothing is taboo or shunned in Sector Four and I love it! What I would give to spend a few days “exploring” with the sexy O’Kanes. See! Inner perv comes forth with a vengeance! If you are new to this series and this pair of authors just be warned that these books take the raunch factor up to never-never land. Go in expecting it all. You get passion, steam and loads of orgasm-inducing sex that will leave you squirming. With all this being said, you also get loads of heart. Yes, the sexy trio do get down and dirty but their relationship is all sorts of beautiful as it comes to fruition. They organically flowed into something that we all want in our lives – love and acceptance. That is definitely the heart of the matter.
All in all, Beyond Jealousy proved to me once again why I am such a fan-girl of these authors and this series. You simply never know what to expect with each book. The overall story arc as it pertains to the O’Kanes and all that is going down is cleverly interwoven into each book. Further, with each book you get a deliciously sexy love story. I can’t get enough of this series and the people who make up Sector Four. They have all somehow weaved their way into my heart. Matters are getting more intricately complex as we are hit with an ending that had my heart slamming out of my chest. Trix’s story is up next in Beyond Addiction. I can’t wait.
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 (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.

BEYOND CONTROL (book 2)
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.

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.
