Beyond Jealousy (Beyond #4) by Kit Rocha

Goodreads Review
 
 
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.  
 

 
“If I didn't love you both, this wouldn't be so fucking hard.”
This book is everything I wanted it to be and so much much much more. 5 I am beyond jealous stars.

 
 
Now you see Ms. Rocha did a fantastic job with Beyond Pain and if I had to choose between that book and this one I couldn't. Beyond Pain is refreshing because they are true to one another. But this Beyond Jealousy is more.
When it comes to love there are no boundaries.

Ace acts like he is happy with life where his scars run deep,he doesn't have a high opion of himself when it comes to truly opening up. He was trained to be like Jared and Gia but he isn't built that way. Ace always tried to push Rachel away.
“His illicit allure would wear thin eventually, and the hero always got the girl.”

Since Rachel took the fall for her father she has been an O'Kane and has been accepted. She is fed up with Ace, he ground her heart into dust. Rachel was hot and heavy with Cruz because her loyalties were split.“Separately, the two men drove her crazy, twisted her into knots of longing and thwarted desire. But together –
Together, they’d give her everything.”



Cruz took a fall from Eden and all his ideals changed with that how I felt with wanting Rachel and Ace. “Rachel and Ace had been on a collision course since long before he’d met them. If he didn’t want to end up left behind, he had to be between them when they finally crashed together.”


Ms. Rocha not only displays an eye for the chemistry with the three but it spreads to the whole story. At one point I felt that I was in Gangs of New York film.
 
 
There is also a 3.5 book Beyond Temptation but I don't read .5 books. They frustrate me more than anything else.
