From the Author

About the Beyond Series

This book is part of the Beyond series, stories set in a post-apocalyptic world where the rich and powerful have claimed ownership of the country's only self-sustaining city. Those who live within Eden's walls must abide by a strict moral code or risk exile to the brutal, lawless sectors.

Gangs and petty dictators rule the slums, but not all kings are created equal. Dallas O'Kane and his brotherhood of bootleggers are the only authority in Sector Four. Cross them at your peril. But pledge your loyalty, and you might be invited into their world of passion and power, sex and sin. Just remember: if you're an O'Kane, you're an O'Kane for life.

There's nothing I love better than a dirty, sexy read with a plot, and Beyond Shame hit the nail on the head.

Sheltered debutant-like Noelle has only lived her life within the glistening walls of Eden, when she breaks the rules too many times she gets the boot and ends up in grimy 'real' world left after solar flares took out most of the world's technology. After a near rape she's rescued by Jasper, her knight in shining denim.

Jasper has lived outside the walls his entire life. Steadily working his way from forced laborer to respected enforcer for the biggest gang leader in Sector 4. When the doe eyed Noelle passes out in his path he feels drawn to help the naive girl.

With a gang war on the rise and a potential threat from Eden, the O'Kane gang struggle to hold together their empire. In the meantime, Jasper (with the help of some friends) lead Noelle through the world of sin that life outside the walls of Eden has to offer.

Usually at this point in my review I would describe the relationship between the hero and heroine, BUT there's a twist in Beyond Shame, Noelle not only has a romantic relationship with Jasper (that is completely off the sexual charts) she also partakes in acts with a slew of other O'Kane gang members, including Lex (a female sexual switch that shows Noelle the ropes of living the life of a gang member). Typically, in a story filled with orgy-like scenes I would expect the relationship between the central characters to seem forced, or unromantic. BUT when I took into account Noelle's submissive need to please Jasper by doing his bidding (even if that meant involving herself in sexual situations with others) it made complete sense. (Not to mention, it was completely HOT!)

The writing style was fantastic.

Rating: A ... Heat: Sizzling

Warning: This story has the usual m/f as well as f/f, m/f/m, and m/f/f/m... or is it m/f/m/f... not sure, but no m/m in the ménages. There is also exhibitionism, bondage and elements of D/s but it has an organic feel that matches the world and setting.

Yes. This book... Hell yes. Beyond Shame is sinfully sexy combined with dark and edgy. A combination that thrills your senses and keeps you squirming in your seat. And it is so incredibly delectable you can't help but devour it quickly--which makes a reread practically a requirement. That way, the next time you read it... you can take it nice and slow...

Ahem. Sorry, my mind drifted back to this scene that included a particularly creative use for strands of pearls... *fans myself* And, now we're moving on...

Beyond Shame takes place in a dystopian world--a world that has been ravaged by solar flares and is now broken up into the idyllic city of Eden and the gang-riddled sectors that surround it. I don't generally gravitate toward dystopian settings unless there is a unique twist or a convincing reason for why the world has gone to hell in a hand basket. Beyond Shame meets both of those requirements. While it did take some time to get a firm hold on it all, once I did, I was hooked. It is such a complex and intricate society, written with such forethought and detail, that it easily became a real place in my mind. And it really was the perfect backdrop for this extensive cast of unique and colorful and... lustful characters.

The first character we meet, Noelle Cunningham, makes quite the entrance. Thrown out of Eden, she is alone and at the complete mercy of everyone else. Luckily, one of the first people she stumbles into is Jasper McCray.

I must bow down to the Mistresses... ;-)

Ok the people on Twitter (you know who you are) that said this book was deliciously dirty didn't even come close to how truly naughty this book is. I mean decadence can't cover it.. you feel like a bit of a voyeur but man oh man can it give you some ideas.

I felt for poor Noelle when she ends up kicked out of Eden to make her way in the Sectors. She is quickly seen as prey and ends up getting juiced by someone that wanted to take advantage. Luckily for her she lands in the arms of a very sexy, dangerous man. She's innocent, naive and believes that the thoughts and feelings she's been having are shameful. You may think this makes her weak but as you get to know her and watch her grow ... she's strong and such a lovely character. Sure she likes to submit... sure she likes to play with both men and women but... she's no weak plaything...

Jasper.. *fans self*... man oh man can he get your motor running. He's growly... possessive... sweet... lost.... and man oh man can he come up with some interesting things to say and try out. I loved watching him in both his dealings with Noelle and the rest of the world we were immersed in. I loved his ability to both want to keep her but knows that what he needs to do is let her come out of her shell by not completely stifling her. He does some typical male bs but hey I can forgive a lot.

Now... my comments would not be complete without mentioning the next pair that we will hopefully see... and man oh man this will be an amazing book when the Mistresses give it to us..

Dallas and Lex... dude these two are scorching in this book but man oh man... Their book should be absolutely positively scorching..
