Book review: Beyond Pain (Beyond #3) by Kit Rocha
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.
I'm not even sure where to start with this book. If you have not read the series than you MUST! It's become one of the best erotic genre series out there for me. It's not just a lot of hot sex. It's a continuing story with an elaborate framework of world building and various interesting and sometimes explosive characters. This is book three in the series and Bren and Six's story. They are not new characters and have been present in previous books. It's their time to take center stage however and find out about them that we've only seen hints of so far. Six has had to be tough and learn to freeze her emotions to survive a life she had in the now dead Sector 3. There she was forced to have sex and have her life threatened repeatedly along with being beat by their now dead leader. There is no trust left in her for anyone. She doesn't understand Sector 4 at all or Dallas O'Kane their leader. Bren is former military. Part of a team and brotherhood until he was betrayed by his commander. He was forced to set someone up and then took for the fall for it and was kicked out of the military and city Eden to the sectors. Bren eventually gets into sector 4 and becomes part of Dallas O'Kane's gang. When Six shows up he's interested in her. He gets is protective of her and knows he has to move slowly and help her heal and earn her trust. With her past it's not going to be a easy thing. In their story you finally get details about Six and Bren's history and Six's real name. Bren is tapped to help start straightening out Sector 3 since the O'Kane's are taking it over. He takes six with him because of course she knows the place and people there well. In working on sector three it puts the man who ruined Bren's life back into play and Bren kind of loses his mind for a while when he sees a chance for revenge at all costs. That cost just might be Six! Wow this story is captivating. The hot sizzling sex scenes are great but there is so much more to this book than the sex. It only enhances everything. You get a peak at previous characters and hints at the characters that will take center stage in the next book. The O'kanes are not just a gang though there a family. The guys are tough SOB's but sexy and sweet as hell while the ladies are tough in their own way but still feminine and vulnerable when needed. The men come come off as powerful but it's the woman that are ultimately in charge. Makes for one sexy series! 5 out of stars for Beyond Pain by Kit Rocha.
