Book Five in the bestselling, award-winning BEYOND series. She’s fought like hell to leave the past behind. Trix changed her name and her life when she got clean four years ago. Now, she has a new family and a job she loves—tending bar and dancing at the Broken Circle. As an O’Kane, she’s happy, untouchable. Until a nightmare from her old life tears her away from her home and drags her back to Hell—also known as Sector Five. He’s still living—and dying—in it. Losing Trix was the kick in the head Finn needed to get sober, but working as an enforcer for a man he hates is slowly crushing his soul. The only thing that keeps him going is his determination to destroy Sector Five from the inside. Then Trix comes back into his life—alive, in danger—and nothing else matters. Getting her home could be a suicide mission. The only thing deadlier is the old spark that flares to life between them. Soon, Finn and Trix are battling the one addiction neither of them ever managed to kick—each other. And it could cost them everything.
Three Boundless Stars
It’s been awhile since I visited this gritty world that the writing duo Kit Rocha created; this post-apocalyptic, erotic morsel, picks up where book 4 leaves off. This series really shouldn’t be read as a stand along since there are so many intertwining characters, and an overall backstory progressing through the series. I will admit, since it’s been so long since I visited the sectors, I was a bit lost; yet Beyond Addiction is much like the others, with hot filthy sex, including a group sex scene with Dallas and Lex. It was hot, but it didn’t feel new. I think that’s why I slowed down on this series to begin with; it stopped feeling fresh to me. There were some sweet moments between Trix and Finn, but I never fully invested in them or the story.
This is the first time I listen to an audiobook version instead of reading the story. Malone isn’t my favorite narrator. She does a fine job; I just don’t care for her voice. I think had I read the book, I may have been able to get into the story more.
