She’s been looking for the perfect man. She found two.

When Rachel Riley sacrificed a life in Eden to protect the O’Kanes, she earned her place in the powerful Sector Four gang. But the former crime princess is tired of being everyone’s sweet little sister . It’s time for her to get wild, to embrace her fantasies as only an O’Kane can—with a delicious exiled soldier and the gang’s wickedly sinful tattoo artist.

A saint...

Lorenzo Cruz is a warrior, taught by his commanding officers in Eden that involvement equals distraction. Emotion is a liability, and desire a sin. In Sector Four, he finds decadence, shameless sex—and his own dark urges. No battle strategy prepared him for how Rachel makes his heart race…or the way his rival for her affections sets his blood on fire.

...and a sinner.

Ace Santana has a dirty reputation and a mind to match, especially where his new lovers are concerned. He’s eager to help Cruz embrace his dominant side, and to explore the lines between pleasure and pain with Rachel. But corrupting them quickly becomes an obsession, a need he can’t deny—and a love he never imagined.

Three hearts on the line means a hundred ways their ménage a trois could go wrong. After all, even O’Kanes do forever two-by-two. One of them could be the missing piece that makes them all whole…or a temporary diversion destined for a broken heart.

In a Nutshell: I’ve been anticipating Beyond Jealousy for awhile and this story did not disappoint me.

Why I Read This Book: I’m a big fan of the Beyond series. I’m also a fan of m/m/f so bonus for me!

What I Liked: I love the world-building in this series. The setting is dystopian. The O’Kane gang of Sector 4 manufactures and sells liquor. There’s cage fighting, exhibitionism, all sorts of naughty things going on. The characters are so richly developed. The political intrigues with Eden and the other sectors just add to the incredible world.

Ace the tortured artist and Cruz the former soldier standout among the O’Kane men. There’s been a lot of build up to these three characters getting their story. I was very happy with the story. The glimpses of Ace and Cruz, Rachel and Cruz, Rachel and Ace but not all three together for sexy times before this book were a fabulous tease!

I really like there was no sugar-coating the struggle/hesitation of all three of them to get into a triad/ménage relationship. They were all trying to avoid the relationship to protect each other but were also causing damage. Their getting together was inevitable and I loved every minute of it!

Overall Impression: Another great story in the Beyond world. I loved getting Rachel, Cruz, and Ace’s story after the build-up. And the teaser for book 5, Beyond Addiction, was awesome. Talk about starting with a bang—I can’t wait for Trix and Finn’s story!
