Beyond Shame (Beyond 1) - Kit Rocha

The Book
Release Date: 2 October 2012

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 the gang, to a dangerous world of sex, lust and violence. A world where passion is power, and freedom is found in submission.

My Opinion  4 STARS

**Provided by Netgalley and Kit Rocha for an honest review**

A dystopian erotic novel?  Brilliant.  Although these two elements can be brilliant and have their own merits, bringing them together leads to something explosive.

The multiple POV could have been annoying, but each character brought something to the story weaving their way into the tapestry and making them integral and right.

I loved this book.  However the open sharing of partners and public fornication a little weird for me, and the constant struggle for our two budding lovers to admit what they truly wanted and felt was a little annoying.  I wanted to bang their heads together.

I loved all of the O'Kane gang introduced to us.  Each person did feel like a family member and were woven brilliantly next to and around each other.

I look forward to reading the rest of this series.
