Adrian Maddox fled his royal life--and tragic past--in Sector One, choosing instead to join up with the O'Kanes. For years, he's lived by one rule: love fast, love hard, and always be willing to walk away. He's managed to guard his heart, keep it whole and untouched--until now.
They couldn't be more different--Dylan, the brilliant, burned-out doctor from Eden who drowns his pain with drugs and self-destruction. Scarlet, the sensuous, sexy rocker from Three, a woman unafraid to embrace the world. And Jade, the whore turned spy from Sector Two, who battled addiction and came out stronger than anyone he's ever met.
Separately, they make Mad long to open his heart, to tumble head-first into a sea of possibilities and wild love. Together, they make him burn, inside and out, with lust and unbearable, unimaginable pleasure.
Then one fateful moment shakes their world to its foundations--and leaves the sectors on the verge of all-out war with Eden. It's the biggest fight the O'Kanes have ever faced, and Mad and his lovers are at the dead center of it. They could end up with everything they never knew they wanted--or lose it all. Including their lives
So, before I started this book, I was a little behind on my Beyond Series and I read the book prior to it yesterday and then I finished this book today. This book was about self exploration. It was about understanding who you are and why you make the decisions you make.
The sectors are about to go to war and everyone is being tested in every way. Do you chose your family or do you chose what you believe in? Do you open yourself up to someone know that going to war means that you may not see them again?
This book challenged everyone. It made you think. It made you pick a side.
I must say that I loved and hated this book at the same time. I've always been a HUGE fan of Kit Rocha. In fact, someone asked the other day what authors would be on your bucket list and these two amazing authors would be on it. However, this book and the last book were too similar. They didn't stand out on their own like the first 4 books. I was actually just discussing with my sister how much we loved the first 4 books. They are on my all time favorite lists. They were unique and stood out. this book had way too many different points of view for my liking. I get that we are getting more of the "war" which I absolutely loved. I'm ready for Dallas to take some names and kick some ass in Eden. But the double edge sword was that because you got more war, more perspectives, I felt lost when it came to the main love story in this book. It didn't allow the relationship to reach the depth that I normally love. I didn't feel the love between the characters. It was too instant for me. The lust was absolutely there and the sex scenes were off the charts, but it was just that for me, LUST. It didn't feel like true love.

Synopsis: "Howns you. Whatever he tells you to do you do".
One year. No future. A past that won't go away.
Lennox "Nox" Demetri broke his own rule by making a deal. It may not have been directly with the devil, but that doesn't mean Satan himself isn't watching. Was it fate that brought Charli into his life and his bed? What will happen when rules are broken and secrets are revealed?
"New rules...my rules."
Alex "Charli" Collins found pleasure with Nox like she'd never known. That was before she knew his last name. Now that Infidelity is involved and the rules have changed, what will result when real life and fantasy collide?
Is it really cheating if you're doing it to yourself?
So before I started the 2nd book I was not aware that this was going to be part of a 5 book series!! The first book started out brilliantly! Nox was amazing and I decided that he was going to be a knight in shining armor for this series and I couldn’t wait for him to kick some butt and take some names.
Therefore, I was a little disappointed when it came to the 2nd book. Instead of getting what I was hoping for, we got more background regarding the family. It was similar to what Aleatha did in Consequences. Some of the chapters moved forward and some of them let you look into the past.
Charli’s mother is nothing but a worthless woman to me and I’m wondering what extremes she will go to “free” Charli. She wasn’t willing to “free” herself, but I’m wondering if she will just sell her daughter down the stream in order to save the family name or if she will step up to the plate for the first time in her life. I found it interesting that she wanted her daughter to be strong, but she wasn’t strong. She wanted more for her daughter, but little does Charli know she has sold her daughter’s freedom for the family’s “interest.”
To be honest, the family’s past just ticked me off! Charli’s family was just crazy! I get that they wanted to protect their company but they are some shady people. To me they reminded of people you would see on the Maury Show combined with money and arrogance. So now I really want Nox to come in and kick some butt. I need him go all alpha on these people and put them in their place. But instead he decided that he needs to teach Charli a lesson………….
So in the next book he is going to have a lot of ground to make up with me!
Overall it was a good book. Everyone knows that I love Aleatha’s writing style. The characters were amazing………… but frustrating!!! The plot line continues to deepen and not be some fluffy story that ends just to end. Instead, this story continued to add to our understanding of whom these crazy people are and why they are doing what they are doing. I may not agree or like these people, but it definitely adds another layer of context to the story. It keeps you flipping the pages because you are instantly rooting for Charli. I found myself yelling at her family multiple times in book and hoping that I wasn’t waking my husband up while I was yelling at my poor IPad. As normal, I will be impatiently waiting for the next installment in this series hoping that my knight and shining armor comes through for me and my new favorite girl Charli.

One week. No future. No past. No more.
Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree—no ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing herself as "Charli," she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined. With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.
"Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I understand that.”
Lennox "Nox" Demetri is wealthy, confident, and decisive--he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make the rules, together they agree on one:
One week. No more.
When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.
"Is it really cheating if you're doing it to yourself?"
In my opinion Alexandria is a little wild cat! She knows how to behave and do what needs to be done on the outside, but inside she is all feisty and independent. People may have expectations of her, but in the end she does what she wants. She isn't one of those people who roll over and play dead. Oh no, she is going to take the bull by the horns and pave her own way in life. While she is attempting to pave that way, she unexpectedly meets Nox. They play a cat and mouse game while she is on vacation which was fun, but then they head back to the real world they full plan on never seeing each other again.
Once, Alexandria is back in the real world, her world comes crashing down around her and her life will never be the same. How she handles everything is why I call her a "little wild cat." She does not complain or whine, she makes a plan and pushes forward. **My kind of girl.** Her plan though.......... haha! Well, let's just say that Nox doesn't stay in vacation land. Oh no, and he is upset that she didn't play the damsel in distress and run right to him.
Speaking of Nox...... he is yummy! He is a complete alpha male who made me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside. The problem is that he wanted Alexandria to come to him so that he could fix it. Because come on ladies...... who doesn't want a knight in shining armor to come save them. Well not Alexandria. This twist is that he still swoops in unbeknownst to her and is about to drop the biggest bombshell in the last chapter! We know it is coming, but she does not. And his fix is NOT all knight in shinning armor which makes him all the more appealing to me. We have knight meets wickedness all jumbled up together to make one delicious man. EEEKK!!!
This book has left me in a book funk and I have not been able to get out since. Aleatha is one of those authors that always leaves me wanting more and this new series is no exception. So as I'm writing this review, I'm chomping at the bit waiting for the next one to be released. Yes, I know I only have to wait a month....... but in case you didn't know, I'm a very impatient person!! Especially, when it comes to my next book boyfriend.
And I'm putting this out there now! HE IS MINE!!!!
On a side note: I hated her family. They were absolutely despicable and I wanted to strangle them with my bare hands. So secretly, I'm hoping that Nox keeps this knight and shining armor persona and desecrates her family because they deserve nothing less!!
RATING: 5 Stars

Hey everyone! Welcome to our new site. It has been a long time coming. Since everything is changing I thought I would give you a little update regarding me!
First off, I had to change the website because someone decided that they should hack into the old blog website which made it impossible to work with it. What is upsetting is that everything I did before is gone. I cannot even access it which is really sad. Even my backups were compromised and could not be accessed. As a result, you are now seeing a completely different website. I do happen to have some saved copies of reviews that I wrote; therefore over the next several months, I will attempt to update the website with the past reviews. The site will also continue to be updated as I add to it, so please check on facebook for the latest news regarding the blog.
Secondly, I have switched jobs as of yesterday. I will still be working a 40 hour a week job; however with the shift in jobs, I plan on being online more often since I will no longer be working in a traditional office. So, I will be super excited to spend more time with all of you and reconnecting. So please feel free to drop me a line.
Thirdly, I'm putting together a book signing in Fort Wayne, IN. I'm excited to be putting this event together. Unfortunately, due to the worst case of bronchitis that I have every experienced, I'm just now putting tickets up for sale. If you are interested in the event, please check out our event page (Click Here) or our ticket page through Eventbrite (Click Here).
Lastly, I want to thank all of you for continuing to follow us through this transition!
