“Take them off.”
“You heard me, Miss Lili.” His voice was low, steady–and wrapped in unmistakable command. “Take off your fucking panties.”
Blurb: 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.
Mandi: This series is not only one of the most erotic series I read, but it also gives me the warm fuzzies. It’s like my dirty, sexy, comfort read and I love that it is that combination. We get Lili, who is learning about herself now that she is out of the strict, drug inducing haze of Sector 5. She learns about her own desires, and that sexual desire is not shameful, and Jared is the one that starts to show her.
Jared is a spy for Dallas, but is very familiar with the members of Sector 4. He awakens Lilli’s sexual desire, and also learns himself that he needs to let others in and that he isn’t alone in the world. Their relationship is very sweet.
Tori: Beyond Innocence brings us two weary souls who don’t believe in love or that they are worthy of it. The erotic scenes are off the charts as is what we have come to expect from this series but the emotional scenes will give you all the feelz as Jared and some friends slowly and VERY thoroughly teach Lili about her sexuality and the freedom that comes from owning it. Her experiences in Sector 5 were extremely abusive and it distorted her sexual and emotional growth. Lili, in return, shows Jared that he is a man worthy of the love and friendship that is bestowed on him.
The on going arc is expanding and evolving as the Sectors and Eden gather for a showdown. Rogers introduces a new character whom I can’t WAIT to learn more about. I have my thoughts on who his heroine will be and if I’m right, it’ll be quite the show.
Mandi: Kit Rocha can write a sex scene. Nothing says Wicked Wednesday like an Ace/Cruz/Rachel/Jared/Lili sex scene. Yes. I’m going to put it under a spoiler tag because it’s explicit.
Ace’s fingers closed over Jared’s. “That’s right, blue-eyes. Lick him all over. Make Rachel help, if you want. She’s panting for it.”
Lili tilted her head back again, seeking Jared’s eyes before she tested the boundaries of her newfound brazenness. “Do you want us to suck your cock?”
“Yes.” He slipped his thumb between her lips, gliding it over her tongue, urging her mouth open. “Think about my face in your pussy. I want to see it in those big, big eyes, love.”
The thought alone made her moan. Jared’s clever, taunting tongue soothing away every pulse of need until she shattered in relief. Maybe he wouldn’t stop this time. Maybe Cruz would hold her arms down, and Jared wouldn’t have to hold anything back.
“That’s it.” His eyes blazed, and he gave a short, decisive nod.
A warm hand slid over her hip. Big, rough, but so gentle–Cruz’s touch would have been unmistakable, even if he hadn’t been the only one behind them. “You two help her with Jared, since you can’t be trusted not to play too rough with her.”
“But not you. Mr. Control.” Rachel’s teasing words blew hot on Lili’s earlobe. “You can watch him lose it, too. Later.”
“Later,” Cruz agreed, stroking the back of her thigh this time before urging her to rock forward. She shuddered and gave in, and it was simple. Effortless. Ace guided Jared’s cock between her lips, and she was rewarded by Jared’s shuddering sigh.
Rachel licked a path ahead of Lili’s conquering lips, leaving Jared’s rigid shaft slick and hot. In seconds, Ace had joined her, dragging his tongue up to hers as she tried to take more, only to meet with frustration as his size threatened to choke her.
“Shh.” Ace tugged at her hair, easing her back. “Swallowing a dick is hot and all, but it’s not the only way to get a guy off. Lips and tongue, that’s all he needs. And suck, Lili.”
That was simpler. Rachel and Ace had already made it easy. Their tongues tangled, stroking over Jared, over each other, over Lili. They left Jared’s shaft so slick that her lips glided effortlessly. She swirled her tongue, almost used to Cruz’s soft touches now. They were one more spark of warmth, one more step toward a goal she could sense now. It was rushing toward her, big and bright and beautiful. And she wanted it.
Seeking out Jared’s gaze again, she sucked.
His eyes went dark, and he licked the corner of his mouth. “So pretty,” he breathed. “These gorgeous pink lips stretched around my cock.”
You’ll have to read the book to finish the scene. Each book can be read as a stand-alone but I do think you’ll miss out on the dynamics between the characters if you skip ahead.
