Oh my sexy, broken tortured souls, kinky, erotic, fuckathon with a steamy, carnal, sensual and beautiful story! I really don't think there are enough words to describe how I feel about this book but I just loved it. Best one of the series so far.
To be honest, I wasn't really sure I was going to like this because I haven't really been feelin Six. Well, Kit Rocha proved me wrong. Six is badass on the outside, tough on the inside with a dash of girlie feels. I freaking love her! She knows that she's a little fucked up and broken but is working on herself and her comfort levels. She's learning to trust because she's only ever relied on herself.
Bren is smart, patient, tough as nails, trained killer who's out for revenge on the one man that betrayed him in Eden. I really like that he doesn't push Six into anything. He waits for her to make the move or give the signal that she's ready for something more, still letting her know that he's there for her if she needs it. He doesn't try to "fix" her but gives her the tools to feel comfortable and take care of herself. He gives her space.
Sex: Yes! Oh my goodness it was very good and by very good I mean I'm putting this in my two finger one handed read category. Bren is a giver and never takes more than Six can handle. Since this is all new to Six, she's trying to discover exactly what she likes and what she doesn't like. Six has to trust and open herself to the O'Kane's and Bren and that's not easy for anyone. My most favorite scene in all the books I've ever read was when Lex, Rachel and Dallas put on a show. Oh ho it wasHAWT! It was sexy, sensual, raw and voyertastic. I could put myself in Six's shoes and experience what she was feeling. I would probably react the same way so I could relate to her reactions. This scene started at 44% and went to 52%! UGG! I just loved it!!
A couple of things that I didn't like but not that significant for me to dock any stars... The fall of Russell Miller was anticlimactic and frankly I was a little disappointed. Bren has been waiting for years for this moment. Also, there really wasn't a lot of suspenseful action. This story is mainly about two people healing and finding each other in a very unlikely way.
Overall, I LOVED it! If you like amazing sex, ménage with a dash of f/f and m/m, fantastic healing, romance and love story in a dystopian setting, then this is the series for you. I can NOT wait to read Beyond Jealousy with Rachel, Cruz and Ace!!!
I would like to say one last thing to team Kit Rocha...
Some of my favorite quotes:
"Once I have you up against the hood of a car with my hand in your pants, you'll change your mind."
“Fucking. It doesn't start when you get naked, not the way I do it."
"You can have my body. You'll take better care of it than I ever have."
"He didn't start slow. Instead, he plunged into her in time with Dallas's next thrust, trusting that the visual combined with the sensation would driver her higher. Harder."
"Suck my cock," he rasped. "I want to fuck your face before I fuck your pussy."
"I love you, but so help me, Brendan Donnelly... If you screw this up by not admitting you need her, I'm going to let my cat pee in your bed every night for the next ten years."
"Why do you think being a better man matters so damn much? The sex, that's good, but it's not the prize. Trust is the prize, and the fights not about winning it or keeping it. It's about deserving it, and that's a fight a man's got to have with himself. Every fucking day."
