4 super-short-deliciously-naughty stars

"He wanted the heat of that mouth, the skill and oblivion. He wanted to feel what the women under him always did, the careless bliss that came when someone else had taken over."

"That was fucking hot." Jared & Ace ... I wouldn't be able to look away either if I was Rachel! This just makes me think of all the naughty things to come next ;)

I really enjoyed this free read from the author's website.

This deleted scene is a quick, very hot, very insightful look into Ace's feelings for Rachel, and how his good friend, Jared, helps him "work off" some of his... frustrations.

This series is one of my favorites, but be warned: it's sexually intense and the world is gritty dystopian.

This isn’t really going to be a review. It’s moreso an excuse to gush about this series again to you. BEYOND DENIAL is the free short from Kit Rocha which originated as a bribe for readers to vote for them for DABWAHA. In this shameless competition, the best books of 2012 battle it out and voila, this little short was gifted to readers as a reward. Now this is a deleted scene from the O’Kane party in BEYOND CONTROL. So if you haven’t read it yet, then SHAME ON YOU! But really, it may not hold a

Very quick and erotic read available on the authors' website! Very steamy sexy times with Ace and Jared, with insight to Ace's feelings for Rachel. Jared is another character I want more of after reading this bit.

Holy smokes! Guys. GUYS. If you aren't reading this series you are missing out on some frighteningly complex characters. This scene perfectly illustrates how wonderful and dark and deep these guys can be. We get longing and lust, guy on guy touching (and beyond), and some unintentional voyeurism that is downright HOT. The beautiful thing is that it's just a fraction of what you'll find in the full-length novels.

If you want to give the books a whirl but aren't sure if they're for you... here you

This was only a scene, so you can guess it's really short but damn it was hot! Ace and Jared make good man-candy material and I can't wait to get their full stories.

If you're a fan of Kit Rocha's erotic dystopian series you're going to love this short freebie staring Ace and Jared. If you haven't discovered the series yet then you really don't know what you're missing - these books are scorching hot, full of sexy, leather clad, tattoo covered alpha guys who will make you swoon. I think you could probably read Beyond Denial even if you haven't read the earlier books without picking up spoilers but be warned that you won't get much of a look at the detailed ...more

A short, super quick read. Interested to see how some of it plays out in the rest of the series.

A couple of lines I liked:

Rachel’s homebrew always went down smooth and delicious, and inevitably led him to wonder if she’d go down the same way.

..."Jas could beat chivalry into a brick.”

... Ignoring his own troubles to get his friend good and laid wasn’t cowardly. It was fucking noble. Martyrish, even. That was him. The god damned saint of sinners.

Short hot read about Ace, Rachel and Jared.

Love Ace and cant wait to see more of him in the rest of this series :)

This is a deleted scene from Beyond Control – it features Ace, Jared and Rachel, and takes place during the O’Kane party thrown for the sector 3 recruits.

Ace is at the party with his friend, Jared, and is mooning over Rachel.

“I like the way you look at her. You’d fall head first into making her scream, and drag the rest of the world along with you.”

Wanting to help his friend take his mind off things, the two of them sneak off for a bit of ‘alone’ time, where they proceed to get hot and heavy.

Reading Beyond Denial made me realize that the second book of the series, Beyond Control, was not on my wishlist. You can bet I fixed that immediately upon finished Beyond Denial.

Beyond Denial is for people who...

...need a little male on male action
...have read the Beyond series and want MOAR it quick and dirty
...enjoy non-discriminatory fucking the obvious back story between Jared, Ace, and Rachel
...think doing it in public and being watched is hot
...can appreciate a well done blo

Quick pit stop for some rooftop oral between Ace and Jared!


Fuck! I gotta get to Book 4 like yesterday.

Plus, Rachel was watching and clearly turned on by what she was seeing. I like that girl more and more.

A tiny glimpse into Ace's feelings for Rachel. Those two need to get their act together, and fast.
Jared tries to distract Ace from thoughts of Rachel if only for a little bit of time, and they are caught.

Hot little scene.

One hot little read. This little tidbit shows the struggle Ace is going through with his obsession for Rachel. One hot look of how Jared helps Ace work on his feelings. Shame shame Rachel you should have joined in.

I love this series. It's big and bold and pushes the envelope when it comes to sex and relationships, and this deleted scene from Beyond Control was a great addendum to what we already know about this world. There's tidbits regarding how the O'Kane gang views their life and each other in this scene. It was great to have a bit more info to add to what we already know about Ace and Rachel. Very much looking forward to Ace's book. He's probably my second favorite male character in this series.

This is a free read and can be downloaded from the author website.

So we have Ace and his friend Jared letting off a little steam at the party held for Sector Three recruits that took place in 'Beyond Control'. They may have an audience of one.

I am seriously crushing hard on Ace.

Can't wait to get to 'Beyond Jealousy'.

I read this for free on the Authors Website. It's a short and sexy scene involving Ace and Jared. I loved it and I love how the author is so free and open. Nothing is held back once she starts writing. Can't wait for more with Ace as I'm sure it's going to be an amazing ride!

Not much needs saying about this short visit into okane world other than HOT.

Some hot m/m action between jared and ace, with a glimpse of the other characters sprinkled in to tease us.

Go read it now on kit rocha website.

Once upon a time, two best friends decided to write paranormal romance. And while that was awesome, they also sometimes wanted to write insanely dirty stuff that wasn’t paranormal at all. This is that stuff.

Kit Rocha is the dystopian-erotic-romance writing alter-ego of writing duo Moira Rogers.
