I can’t believe this is the 2nd to last book in the series. Yes, I know there will be short stories and the focus will shift to the other sectors, but still. IT’S ALMOST OVER!!! *sobs*
But I digress, because there’s a lot to say about this one…
Naturally, Beyond Ecstasy is following the constantly growing and brewing conflict with Eden, and we’re just about to get to the main event and the culmination of the long coming war.
Our couple, though, is one that wasn’t with us throughout all previous 7 books, but meeting Hawk and Jeni these last few stories I feel their coupledom has been “almost happening” for longer than I can stand. So I’m glad it’s finally here.
Hawk has been lusting after Jeni since practically the first time he saw her, but Jeni ‘belonging’ to Dallas and Lex kinda put the breaks on any attempt he’d have made. Until now.
There’s a special buildup between Hawk and Jeni that is tittering on one very fine and very crucial detail. They’re not quite ready for each other. Each for his or her own reason; Hawk has yet to master the technique of his desire. Jeni has yet to mature into giving Hawk her complete and utter trust and confidence, her ability to let go.
Their relationship felt to me as if they were skirting around each other forever, then all at one exploding into this passionate, extremely sexy and very intense love affair, only to blow to pieces scattering all over the place when they find themselves in a life threatening predicament and push comes to shove. And when I say scatter all over the place, I mean the pieces of my heart. Because daaaaammmnnnn, that shit hurt.
Our lovely writing duo, though, seems to know exactly which foot to place in front of which, and as I read the story, thinking back to previous installments, it was clear they know where things go, both with the individual love stories and how they intertwine with the other love stories and how all of them together mesh seamlessly into the main cross installments story.
Kit Rocha is Dystopian Erotica’s god gift to readers. Their brilliantly filthy and creative minds are amazing. Can’t wait for Nessa’s turn and of course the war’s main event. I sure hope they’re working on it. Donna and Bree?
** thanks Donna and Bree for the advance copy.
The O’Kanes have a reputation for working hard and playing harder—except for Hawk. He joined the gang with one goal: to ensure his family’s survival through the impending war with Eden. It’s been years since he had the luxury of wanting anything for himself. Now, he wants Jeni. From the first moment he saw her, he’s been obsessed with making her his. Not for a night—forever.
Jeni’s been lusting after the former smuggler for months, but he keeps shutting her down. She’s almost given up on getting him in her bed when he offers her the last thing she ever expected—a collar. Accepting it means belonging to him, body and soul. It’s a reckless gamble, but Jeni can’t resist the chance to slip under Hawk’s armor.
The only thing more shocking than the dark, dangerous pleasure they discover is how right it feels. But falling in love is even more reckless when forever is far from guaranteed. Because they aren’t just at war, they’re out of time—and every breath could be their last.
