For years, Jared has existed on the fringes of both Eden society and Dallas O'Kane's Sector Four gang. He travels between these worlds, protected by his money and power--money he earned selling his body, and power that comes from knowing secrets. He's untouchable—until he starts a new life gathering intelligence for the O'Kanes.
Lili Fleming walked out of Sector Five with a gun, the bloodstained clothes on her back, and an icy determination to survive. She finds herself in a world where people live hard and love harder, and nothing's more terrifying than how much the O'Kanes wake her up, make her feel—especially Jared.
Emotion is a risk he can't afford, and a complication she doesn't need. But neither can resist the lust simmering between them, and the sparks that could either melt the ice around both their hearts…or get them killed. Because the only thing more dangerous than loving an O'Kane is loving a spy.

Beyond Series #6
I'm a major fan of the Beyond Series from Kit Rocha. I was lucky enough to get a review copy from the authors and dropped everything to read Lili and Jared's story.
I'll be honest and say I questioned Lili and Jared as a couple when I first read Beyond Innocence would be their story. She was still heavily drugged to survive after leaving Sector Five and I just didn't know if Lili was strong enough to survive without the drugs. I should have trusted her character was stronger than everything I had seen and more importantly trusted the authors. I loved Lili and Jared as a couple. They have serious chemistry but more importantly they have total love, protectiveness, and respect.
I loved seeing Lili come out of her fog and become the woman she was always meant to be. She is seriously kick-ass strong on so many levels. Yes I think Jared's attention and love helped her begin to see her own strengths, but really felt like her friendship with Rachel helped her grow every bit as much.
Anyone who has read the Beyond Series before knows you are in for some super sexy times. I love this series because of the family that has developed from Sector Four and the relationships that grow stronger with each story. I have to say Beyond Innocence was probably the sexiest book in this series so far. I had to check with the authors to find out what term to use for the sexiest scene in the book and was given the name "O'Kanesome" and it fits perfectly. OMG was my kindle smoking so many times as I read Beyond Innocence.
The Beyond Series is one of my favorite series I've ever read. I countdown to the release of each new book and read each installment as fast as possible. I honestly feel that each book builds on the books in the series and feel like the books should be read in order to get the true feel for the series. That being said, I also think Beyond Innocence would totally hook you on the series.
