Review: Beyond Addiction by Kit Rocha

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.

What I thought about Beyond Addiction

Well, Kit Rocha has done it again with Finn and Trix.  The book starts out with a bang when Finn has to take some extreme measures to get Trix out of Sector Five. Then they are on the run, trying to get back to O'Kane territory. But Finn and Trix have some serious history, and both of them struggle with where the relationship is going to go, even when Finn gets Trix back to Sector Four.

There's lots of politics in this one as the sectors struggle within and try to wrestle control away from Dallas O'Kane. I loved getting a nice dose of Lex and Dallas in this.  I run hot and cold as far as Lex is concerned, but I liked her in this one and the view of how they are running the sector.

But the real treat for me in Beyond Addiction was Finn.  He's sensitive without being weak, and self-sacrificing without being a martyr.  There was never any question about his feelings toward Trix, and when he's put in a situation that could hurt the entire sector, there really isn't any question about what he's going to do.  And that made him one of the most romantic Sector heros so far for me.

I also loved the relationship that developed between Bren and Finn, and the small snippets of Ace and Cruz throughout. Some great action sequences in this too, and time with Noah in the tunnels beneath Sector 5.  Lots of good stuff. 

Really loved this book in the series.  There's lots of story here.  Recommended.

This is my honest review. I may have received this book from Netgalley, Edelweiss, a publisher, an author, a promoter or purchased it. How I obtained the book has no bearing on my review rating.
