Blog Tour Stop: Beyond Jealousy by Kit Rocha



Author: Kit Rocha

Date: March 17th 2014

Synopsis


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.

Beyond Series
Beyond Shame #1

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 a world where passion is power, and freedom is found in submission.

Beyond Control #2
She refuses to be owned. 
Alexa Parrino escaped a life of servitude and survived danger on the streets to become one of the most trusted, influential people in Sector Four, where the O’Kanes rule with a hedonistic but iron fist. Lex has been at the top for years, and there’s almost nothing she wouldn’t do for the gang…and for its leader. Lie, steal, kill—but she bows to no one, not even Dallas O’Kane.
He’ll settle for nothing less.
Dallas fought long and hard to carve a slice of order out of the chaos of the sectors. Dangers both large and small threaten his people, but it’s nothing he can’t handle. His liquor business is flourishing, and new opportunities fuel his ambition. Lex could help him expand his empire, something he wants almost as much as he wants her. And no one says no to the king of Sector Four.
Falling into bed is easy, but their sexual games are anything but casual. Attraction quickly turns to obsession, and their careful dance of heady dominance and sweet submission uncovers a need so deep, so strong, it could crush them both.

Beyond Pain #3
A woman with no future…
Live fast, die young–anything else is a fantasy for Six. She’s endured the worst the sectors had to throw at her, but falling in with Dallas O’Kane’s Sector Four gang lands her in a whole new world of danger. They’re completely open about everything, including their sexuality–but she hasn’t survived this long by making herself vulnerable. Especially not to men as dominant as Brendan Donnelly.
A man without a past…
Bren is a killer, trained in Eden and thrown to the sectors. His one outlet is pain, in the cage and in the bedroom, and emotion is a luxury he can’t afford–until he meets Six. Protecting her soothes him, but it isn’t enough. Her hunger for touch sparks a journey of erotic discovery where anything goes–voyeurism, flogging, rough sex. He has only one rule: he won’t share her.
In Bren’s arms, Six is finally free to let go. But his obsession with the man who made him a monster could destroy the fragile connection they’ve forged, and cost him the one thing that makes him feel human–her love.

Quotes











Ace. Rachel. Cruz. It’s been a long time coming!

We meet all three early in the series; we also get snippets of them. We get Ace, the wild one who likes tagging along and participating in anything that is lewd and fun in a dirty way. Rachel is the quiet one, it takes time for her to do daring things but she gets there and she takes the bulls by its horns. Cruz was the Soldier, silent but he quickly became part of the family, fighting in the cage, winning. 

All three of them are connected from the beginning. Rachel and Ace. Rachel and Cruz. Cruz and Ace. And finally, in the fourth installment we get all three of them, together. Takes them a while, a pretty rough journey to get there but they do. And when they do… They do it O’Kane style.
We get to see so many things in this part! We get clues into further stories - *cough* Maddox *cough* - and we meet new characters but also get to hang out with old favorites.

Rachel. She grew up in a shadier part of Eden, a part not acknowledged by many. She grew up having street smarts but she was loved by her family. She found a new one with the O’Kanes.

Ace didn’t have it as good as her. Nor Cruz. Both of them had had it rough and they did their best to survive, given the circumstances. 
Ace broke my damn heart. I wanted to shout at him, tell him he deserves what Rachel and Cruz are offering him and to bitch-slap him. But I got it. I got him. 

We spark, angel. We spark so bright, and I always thought I’d woo you nice and slow and you’d adore me. But you only ever see the worst in me, and there’s so much worst to see.

You think I know what to do with a woman’s heart?

You got your saint, Rae. Just… promise me you need a sinner, too.”

Cruz surprised me and he also got me to blush a few times and to fan myself. This guy has many layers I was only happy to peel off. Underneath it all is the real Lorenzo Cruz.



Cruz met her eyes, held them. There was a wild sort of hunger there, an intensity that had seemed closer to the surface lately.

Cruz slipped his hand free of her pants. “I want both of you in my bed. Naked.”
  
“Rachel and Ace were his. If that meant razing everything in his path, it would be worth it. As long as they were alive. As long as they were safe.”

And since I mentioned my favorite O’Kane, Maddox, I just have to say that I got a few good doses of him – I was really counting on it. But what I read and found out not only stunned me but broke my damn heart. I got glimpses into the real Maddox. Including his real name. [I won’t tell, you’ll have to read to find out!] But after reading about him? I felt gutted. Crushed. Kaput. I had a bad feeling and then what I was afraid of happened, my heart stopped then I was all, ‘No, no, no, no’ and after breathing a little bit easier, wham! I cried. And I cried hard. I still get teary-eyed when I remember. 



Mad hated the dark. He hated the silence of it, the emptiness.”
  
“Mad was oblivious, his bare, bruised chest heaving with every breath, his dark eyes seeing nothing.”

Another bam? Towards the end. I held my breath and again, wiped away the tears but oh, everything works out and you breathe easy.



You two are all the colors I’ve been missing,” Ace whispered, closing his eyes. “I’m going to make gorgeous fucking art with you.”

But there’s a damn cliffhanger that left me wanting more and wanting it now. But luckily Bree and Donna took mercy on us and before the next book is out, we’ll be getting a novella. 
As always, hot sex, Fight Night, blowing things up, street brawl because after all, Dallas O’Kane has to remind us he still has it and that he’s a freaking King and leader. 

“Dallas O’Kane had patience… until he didn’t. And then he burned shit to the ground.”
 
“Family is loyalty. That’s what being an O’Kane means.”

P.S. This has been THE BEST so far! Can’t wait for more. O’Kane for life.

 

 
 
 


 

 

 


The ladies of Kit Rocha have out done themselves. I'm really loving the little POV' s they're doing. It is added torture to what's coming up next.

This is a series that I LOVE to try and piece together. I even have a "story board" I've created to try and keep it all together , so I can add pieces of the puzzle together. I got a lot of pieces out of this book, an I am ITCHING to get them on the board.

Now, as far as the story goes. It's hotter then ever and angstier then ever! There's an outlining of darkness surrounding this book, and with good reason. There's lots of action as well, believe me, you WON'T be disappointed!!


  The dynamic between Cruz and Ace *fans face*. Cruz has def come into his own and my goodness do we love his protective ass! He is willing to sacrifice for Ace, and it is beautiful!  
 Ace opens Cruz up to another world of love, seduction, and pleasure that Cruz would never come to on his own, without them both, this threesome would never work. 

"Ain't no orgy like an O'Kane orgy"~ME!! <3 

"You got your saint, Rae. Just...promise me you need a sinner, too."


"But that was my world. Orange and green and blue."
You two are all the colors I've been missing, Ace whispered, closing his eyes. "I'm going to make gorgeous art with you."

Title and Synopsis created by the LaSalle Sister of Man2Mantastic


Excerpt:
“I want to talk to you now.”
“You can’t always get what you want, Leonidis,” God rebutted.
“I want you,” Day said with no hesitation.
The room was deathly silent. After a few long seconds God responded simply, “No you don’t.”
“I do. Isn’t it obvious?” Day moved a little closer.
“You don’t know what the fuck you want. I’ve watched you for four years, jumping from bed to bed and fucking your way through half of Atlanta. I have one emotional night and all of a sudden you want mefuck you,” God said in his gruffest voice.
Day’s body heated instantly at the sound. He moved even closer to where God was standing on the opposite side of the table.
“Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t realize I was supposed to be saving myself for marriage, and even more so, I didn’t realize you were a goddamn virgin. How many women have I seen you fuck in that pussy-getting truck of yours, huh?” Day lowered his voice as he stood directly in front of God. “Just tell me you didn’t feel what I did last night.” He closed the small gap, not minding God’s height at all, and looked up into electric-green eyes. “Tell me you don’t want me too, and I’ll back the fuck off.”
God looked down at him and Day could see the uncertainty all over that ruggedly handsome face.
“Shit’s complicated, Leo.” God’s breath ghosted across his forehead.
“Make me understand, Cashel,” Day whispered and slowly brought his hands up to rest on God’s waist.
“What makes you think I’m gay or bi?” God asked avoiding Day’s request.
“Really? Maybe it’s this that makes me think that.” Day boldly palmed and squeezed God’s rock-hard erection.
Day groaned. He held on tight while God hoisted him up against the wall and attacked his mouth. It wasn’t pretty or gentle. His partner kissed him with a fury that he hadn’t felt in years. It was erotically carnal, wicked, and Day loved every second. His feet dangled as God’s bulk pushed hard against him, keeping him immobile and under his control.
“This what you want, you sexy fucker?” God snarled in his ear, then leaned in and bit the juncture of his neck that met with his shoulder.
“Ugh, yes! I want you goddammit,” Day hissed into the darkness.
“Prove it.” God released him and Day dropped back to the ground. He immediately felt the loss of God’s heat and had to resist the urge to claw at the man.
Day palmed his own hard erection.
“Seriously. This isn’t fucking proof enough?” he said while seductively squeezing his cock and licking his red lips now full and plump from their kiss.
“I don’t give a damn about your wood. You get a hard-on when you drink coffee, Leo.” God grabbed his coat and headed to the door. “If you want it, you’ll have to earn it.”
Day stalked over to him. “Did you make all those other bitches you fucked earn it first?” Day fumed. Not liking that God was thinking of playing a come-and-get-it game with him.
God spun around fast and gripped Day around his throat, pulling him into his rock-hard chest. Day hit that solid wall of muscles with a thud and the air rushed out of his lungs. Day put both his hands on God’s huge forearms that flexed against his touch. God bent his head and a few strands of his hair came loose from the elastic band and brushed against the side of Day’s face.
God looked and smelled so fucking delicious, like masculinity and aftershave. Day knew the grip on his neck was not to hurt him, it was to show him who was in charge. His sheer strength and power had Day feeling like he could come right there in the small conference room.
“Oh, so you want to be my bitch?” God’s mouth was at the base of his ear. He roughly ground his pelvis into Day’s stomach while the other hand got a firm grip in his hair at the back of his head. “Why didn’t you just say so? You want me to have you face down and ass up in my truck? Then we can go do that right fucking now.”
God loosened his grip on Day’s hair and let the large hand around his throat turn into a gentle caress. He smoothed down Day’s hair and leaned in and took a large sniff before nuzzling the side of his face. Day couldn’t have stopped the unmanly whimper if he’d tried. God dragged two fingers down his throat and gently stroked his collarbone. His breathing was now even and calm, surprisingly relaxing Day as well.
God kissed Day’s temple before speaking in a seductive whisper against the side of his face. “Or do you want me to put on one of your jazz records and lay your sexy body down on your bed and slowly lick you from head to toe?” God ran a thumb over Day’s parted lips.
“So tell me, which one do you want?”
Day had to figure out how to speak again before he was finally able to reply. “Yes, Cashel. I want you in my bed.”
“Then prove it.” God laid a lingering, gentle kiss on his forehead before stepping back from him and leaving the conference room.

Go to A.E. Via’s official website http://authoraevia.com for more detailed information on how to contact her, follow her, or a sneak peak on upcoming work, free reads, and where she’ll appear next.



Meet the Author
We did a little interview with A.E and here is how it went 
1: What's your favorite restaurant?
Any place that serves a good surf and turf (hell no, not Red Lobster). The Lynnhaven Fish House on the Oceanfront in Virginia Beach is my go to.

2: what's your favorite room to decorate?
None, my brother decorated my entire house. Only thing I semi-did on my own, is my office. Don’t really have the eye, ya’know. But he did a great job!

3:if one song could be the soundtrack to your life, what would it be?
Milkshake by Kellis. Lol.  ‘My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard… I could teach you – but I’d have to charge’ (such a horrible song, but too funny and true)

4: Marilyn , Audrey, or Jackie?
I’d probably say Jackie…I’m pretty dark. (winking mischievously)   

5: if money were no object, what's one thing you'd buy?
 A house for my mother
6: best coffee table book?
The book I’d have out when company is over or clients ~  The Cave and the Light: Plato vs. Aristotle, and the Struggle for the Soul of Western Civilization  (actually had to read it in college, augh!)
The book I’d have out when it’s just me and my girls ~ G.A. Hauser’s – The Wedding Planner
7: what's your favorite way to spend lazy Sundays?
Reading, reading, reading, drink some wine, then reading.

8: where do you look for an obscure source of inspiration?
You may not believe it…but porn. My books are about love and romance, and in porn the romance may not be readily seen, but you just have to look hard enough…I sure do. (smiling)
9: Why the m/m genre? would you consider any other genre?
Really? Its man on man loving…enough said. *laughing* Seriously, I’ve always been a romance genre reader, having started with a few of Danielle Steele’s big ones. I started out reading primarily M/F. then I dabbled into M/F/M. It wasn’t long before I started to want way less female and a lot more male. After I bought my first gay romance novel nine years ago, I haven’t looked back. In my opinion the men in M/M have such an intense level of love and hot, rough sex in their stories; I’ve just been extremely attracted to it. Writing about it is truly fascinating…I love where the scenes take me.
I will not cross over genres to M/F or even M/F/M… I just don’t need to.

10: what's the hubby say about you being an m/m author?
(Laughing) He says he never saw it coming…the writing, yes…but the genre, hell no. He’s ultra-supportive, but he won’t read them.

11: Do you have a favorite book of your own books? (( I Know it's like picking which child you like more!))
I like ‘Nothing Special’ the best. It’s kind of easy for me to pick. Leo is so much like me and it was fun writing him.

RAPID FIRE ?'s :D
Favorite color?
Brown
Food?

Vodka mixed with just about any juice

Born to a prestigious political family, Avery Adams plays as hard as he works. The gorgeous, charismatic attorney is used to getting what he wants, even the frequent one-night stands that earn him his well-deserved playboy reputation. When some of the most prominent men in politics suggest he run for senate, Avery decides the time has come to follow in his grandfather's footsteps. With a strategy in place and the campaign wheels rolling, Avery is ready to jump on the legislative fast track, full steam ahead. But no amount of planning prepares him for the handsome, uptight restaurateur who might derail his political future.

Easy isn't even in the top thousand words to describe Kane Dalton's life after his father, a devout southern Baptist minister, kicks him out of the family home for questioning his sexual orientation. Despite all the rotten tomatoes life throws his way, Kane makes something of himself. Between owning a thriving upscale Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown Minneapolis and managing his long-term boyfriend, his plate is full. He struggles to get past the teachings of his childhood to fully accept his sexuality and rid himself of the doubts brought on by his religious upbringing. The last thing he needs is the yummy, sophisticated, blond-haired distraction sitting at table thirty-four.


Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It's always a surprise to see what's coming next!
I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it's true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women's hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life - I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations - regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal... I don't want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I'm going to tell you about Kindle.
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I'll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died - weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn't have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It's everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness - it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.

Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn't a time she wasn't there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It's its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn't be here today without her.

Reviews 



  Two words:  PURE ROMANCE....that is the only way to describe this book.  I mean romance in the purest form available.  After reading The Current Between Us and Texas Pride, Kindle has become an instant auto-buy for me.  I don't read the synopsis, I don't care what she writes about, she is going to chew me up, swirl me around, spit me out and then repeat.


  
This story touched me in so many ways, it shows that there are people willing to put aside their dreams and stand on their convictions.  That one person is willing to love another so deeply, even when it takes years to break down all their "perceived faults" and rebuild with a solid foundation that will hold through the test of time.  I did not devour this book in one sitting, it has taken me multiple sittings.  Savoring everything that she had written and letting in sink in little by little, to get the total effect. 




Kane and Avery are by far the easiest to love couple that I've ever had the pleasure of reading.  Avery's devotion and love for Kane is simply inspiring and a true gift.  He will make you smile, he will make laugh, he will MAKE cry your fucking eyes out; and he will have you cheering him on to the winner's circle.  The story spans 40 years, it doesn't take you on a emotional roller coaster, but on a hang gliding experience.  Kindle sets the stage and just glides you through with her outstanding storytelling and amazing characters.  
So if you’re looking for Pure Romance, this book is just waiting for you, experience the love story that is Kane Dalton and Avery Adams.
