ARC Book review: Beyond Innocence (Beyond #6) by Kit Rocha
eARC provided by author
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 have enjoyed this series since book one. For me it was different and exciting and dangerous with some sexy romance mixed in. Jared has always been interesting to me because he was not a O'Kane even though they wanted him to be. He was there but didn't really belong. Beyond Innocence is his book. It's sometimes crazy who the love interests are for characters in these books and this time it's Lily Fleming. I did not see that coming. We really don't see a whole lot of her before this book and what we do see tells us nothing about the real Lily. Problem for Lily is she doesn't know who she is either. Jared is the one person she is drawn to right away once she is a part of Sector 4. Jared is also attracted to her. He doesn't want to be but he can't help himself. This is probably my favorite book since book one. I just wanted to keep reading and reading and see what happens next. Lily appears weak at first and she thinks she is as well but little by little she finds out who she is and finds she does have power. Jared is more than he thinks he can be too and it takes his long time friends and the O'Kane's along with Lily to realize it. I loved seeing Lily work to empower herself and the O'Kanes and Jared standing with her. Great addition to the series. Looking forward to more.
