Review: Beyond Ecstasy by Kit Rocha

Beyond Ecstasy: Hawk and Jenny

(Beyond #8)

Beyond Ecstasy (Beyond, #8)

The next-to-last book in the bestselling BEYOND series...

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.


I have mixed feelings on this book, on one hand i felt it was a bit short on the plot line the first 75% of the book was leading up to something but mostly contained a lot of sex. Not that I minded the sex, it was pretty hot; although, not a kinky as we are used to from Kit Rocha, but still good. But not much else happened. We got to visit sector six where Hawk's family is and I really enjoyed that glimpse into that sector. Hawk was super sweet and knew what he wanted and went after it. I liked Jeni as well for the most part. She's not a new character but not much was known about her and I feel like we know her better now. I dont think she was as developed as she could have been but what we know, I liked.

The last part of the book is where things started to happen. We've building up to war for the past few books and the wait is finally over as Eden finally makes the move we've been waiting for. There are a few heartbreaking moments that had me tearing up on a plane while surrounded by strangers that were probably looking at me crazy like but it couldn't be helped. There are some good moments, there are some bad moments; however, pretty much all the important stuff is jammed into that last 25% or so. I really feel like the pacing of this book was way off. This is the second to the last book for the OKanes and Im really going to be sad when this arc is over but rest assured, we aren't leaving the sectors altogether we'll just be moving on to a new one. Tho next up we still have Nessa! Poor girl hasn't gotten any play in any of the previous books.
