Review of Beyond Shame by Kit Rocha

Beyond Shame by Kit Rocha
An Erotic Read 

First of all I would like to thank Kit Rocha and Netgalley for gifting and giving me the opportunity to read this book for an honest review.

*******************Spoiler Alert********************

Beyond Shame is a Dystopian Erotic Romance about a city girl who is booted out of Eden and is rescued by a gang member from the O'Kane family but learns to survive on her own terms. 

The story line is definitely interesting and original with the backdrop being the perfect clean city of Eden where people are expected to live sin free lives and then the outer Sectors where all the sinners are ruled by different gangs from each Sector. The characters are engaging however I got a little lost with what the supporting characters from the gang and love interest, Jasper expected from Noelle until about two-thirds into the book. It almost seemed like there really wasn't a love story developing just a lot sex and a lot of guilt from the protagonist for feeling the way she did. The sex scenes are scorching with a little bit of BDSM and a ménage à quatre thrown in for fun although it really didn't do anything to develop the warm fuzzies of romance between the main characters. The author does a good job giving us a glimpse of the supporting characters' back history in order to develop future stories for a series. The cover is nice and tastefully done. All in all it was an o.k. read

Rating 3 out of 5 Stars
