Beyond Addiction (Beyond #5) by Kit Rocha

 
 
Goodreads Review
 
 
 
She’s fought like hell to leave the past behind.

Trix changed her name and her life when she got clean four years ago. Now, she has a new family and a job she loves—tending bar and dancing at the Broken Circle. As an O’Kane, she’s happy, untouchable. Until a nightmare from her old life tears her away from her home and drags her back to Hell—also known as Sector Five.

He’s still living—and dying—in it.

Losing Trix was the kick in the head Finn needed to get sober, but working as an enforcer for a man he hates is slowly crushing his soul. The only thing that keeps him going is his determination to destroy Sector Five from the inside. Then Trix comes back into his life—alive, in danger—and nothing else matters.

Getting her home could be a suicide mission. The only thing deadlier is the old spark that flares to life between them. Soon, Finn and Trix are battling the one addiction neither of them ever managed to kick—each other. And it could cost them everything.
 
 
Now, I probably say this every single time that I read one of the Beyond books that it is my favorite. But this is by far the best one. Not only due to the fact that Kit Rocha can always get me out of my book funk but she delivers a book full of love, passion, suspense and a scorching level of heat that will melt your panties. Happy days, ladies. 4 “Remember what you promised me” Stars.

It is also very surprising for me anyway that the each book gets better and better. That the development of the Sectors as well as the dystopian world that has been created as well as the plots and twists that are included. I was really anxious that Trix would have to go through the whole drug withdrawal as well.

After reading Beyond Jealousy and coming off my Ace, Cruz and Rachel high. I didn’t want to read this one straight away to realize that it wasn’t on par with the others. This book was also very touching and emotional and had me with tears in my eyes.


Trix is originally from Sector Five, she clawed herself away from the drugs and left the one thing that meant the world to her behind. That is until she is kidnapped by Dom who was kicked out of Sector Four and the O’Kanes for abusing Trix and running to Mac Fleming the leader of Sector Five. As revenge for blowing up his illegal distilleries.

Finn has always lived in Sector Five and has been an enforcer. For the past four years he has thought Tracy aka Trix to be dead that is until he is called to Mac’s office. What made me like Finn was that he put a bullet through his head for Trix to get her back to Dallas. Fleming’s second in command Logan Beckett is bat shit crazy and a sociopath. He is married to Lili who is as numb as they come and the daughter of Mac Fleming.

I loved that the plot of the story was also based outside of Sector Four. To escape Finn went to Shipp and Ayla. They owed him a favor. Not many live out that way beyond Eden and the Sectors. I would like to see a book with Hawk he intrigues me.

Finn has played an important role throughout the series although I have only realized it till now. What with framing Sector Two for framing the leader of Sector Six.

Trix didn’t want to leave Finn back at the farm. He went back to Four and wasn’t exactly welcomed with open arms. But family does what they can and they did it for Trix to begin with. Finn and Trix get all their ugly shit out in the open and see what they really have without the past in the way. If things hadn’t gone the way they would have then they both would be dead.

“Teach me, Trix. Prove it can be beautiful instead of twisted.”

Don't get me wrong I like hot n' steamy in my books but it is nice to see a one on one couple. I like the monogamy of it.


“I want to work these pearls into you again, until you’re on the edge, just like this.”


Their passion is pure and unrestrained.


Tell me this is different,” she begged.
“I don’t have to … You can feel it. You know it in your bones. Nothing’s the same as before.”
Because he wasn’t fighting her anymore. Fighting himself. They were sober, clear-headed, free to do what they wanted - and this was it. More than anything else, more than breath.”


But that there was also the debauchery and the filthiness of all around.

“They were filthy in their own ways. Without shame and without judgement, and it was the most intoxicating fucking thing he’d ever seen. You couldn’t bottle the high that came with loving acceptance. You couldn’t buy it.
You had to earn it.”

He proved his worth for what he did for Amira/Flash and Hanna. Sector Five falls and war is inevitable.

“It’s going to be war, one way or another. Only question is who hits first. And who hits hardest“

I really want to read the next one but over 5 € for a book is too steep for me. Patience is a virtue I guess.


There is also a 4.5 book Beyond Solitude but I don't read .5 books. They frustrate me more than anything else.
