A woman with no future…

Live fast, die young–anything else is a fantasy for Six. She’s endured the worst the sectors had to throw at her, but falling in with Dallas O’Kane’s Sector Four gang lands her in a whole new world of danger. They’re completely open about everything, including their sexuality–but she hasn’t survived this long by making herself vulnerable. Especially not to men as dominant as Brendan Donnelly.

A man without a past…

Bren is a killer, trained in Eden and thrown to the sectors. His one outlet is pain, in the cage and in the bedroom, and emotion is a luxury he can’t afford–until he meets Six. Protecting her soothes him, but it isn’t enough. Her hunger for touch sparks a journey of erotic discovery where anything goes–voyeurism, flogging, rough sex. He has only one rule: he won’t share her.

In Bren’s arms, Six is finally free to let go. But his obsession with the man who made him a monster could destroy the fragile connection they’ve forged, and cost him the one thing that makes him feel human–her love.

My Thoughts:

I’m going to feel a bit traitorous when I state this but Bren just pushed himself to the top of my O’Kane yummy men list.  I know I feel guilty because Ace has been my number one man so far but Bren is just something else as we get to follow him and his wonder at finding the woman who is his perfect match.

There was something amazing about watching these two extremely damaged souls find one another and help each other realize they were worth love and trust.  I adored how Six became more self-aware that things didn’t have to just be about power and abuse but that power could be wielded in such a way that all parties benefited.  She had and still has so much to learn about life outside of being an object and I’m going to love to see more of her as the series goes on.  I think that the fact she’s been to hell and back will help the O’Kanes survive the changes that are coming to the Sectors and will become an asset to Dallas/Lex as they continue to fight to keep the family safe.  She gets to heal in a lot of ways with a man that always seems to understand what she needs even at a time when she wasn’t certain.  Watching her gain confidence under his loving attention and assistance made me smile but man did I cry a bit when he was an idiot and almost cost them both everything.  She’s strong with major issues but with her past I could understand them and like the others I wished that we could kill Trent many more times over.

Watching our resident strong silent man Bren show his soft side was amazing.  He still has all these rough edges but with Six they bleed out and show how much he truly cares for the woman he sees under the scars.  He does so many things to show her that she’s worthy of all the good that is coming her way and provides a needed level of faith in her abilities that gives her the boost she needs to grasp at a new life with both hands.  Unfortunately he doesn’t see himself in the same light and almost lets his own past bring them both down.  Thankfully Mad helps out at a crucial moment but I think the thing that made it work for me is Bren took a step back at a crucial moment to let Six be her own person even though as a reader it killed me.

Once again Kit gives us amazing sexual tension and scenes that will make you need an ice bath but with a story that keeps you engrossed from moment to moment.  Sex is in the books but the story is more than that.  We have a world that is incredibly complex and seeing glimpses of what is to come keeps us on our toes.  I must admit I wouldn’t be upset at all if the next one magically appeared on my Kindle today…  *Hint Hint*


Thanks to Kit Rocha for being generous enough to give me a chance to get my greedy hands on it before it went live in hopes of a review.  Note- She didn’t tell me what to write or think on this review but I think knows I am a major fan of this series.  🙂
