Roth and I are on an open-ended tour of the world. Roth being Roth, this means missionary in Morocco, reverse cowgirl in Calcutta, bent over the bow of a houseboat in Hanoi, slow and sleepy on St. John. Anywhere and everywhere, in every conceivable position, and some I didn't know were possible. 

Life was pretty incredible. 

Until I woke up in his chateau in France, alone. On the bed next to me was a note. There were only four words: 

He belongs to me.



Wow, what an unpredictable story this was! Beta was pure suspense from beginning to end that I never saw anything coming the way it did. When things unfolded throughout the story I was left feeling all kinds of shocked, heartbroken, delighted, relieved, content, and hot in the only exquisite way that Jasinda can delivers hot-romance. Indeed this was a very seductive story but it was also a very strong one. A story about love, endurance, and vengeance that may not be for the fain-hearted only because it will really surprise you and take you on a thrilling ride full of unexpected twists!

I read Alpha, the first book in this series and I loved it. I loved that it was pure mystery and that really absorbed me into the story. Now, with Beta the component of this story is the unbreakable suspense. That suspense is wrapped around scorching passion and an intense need to fight for love over anything even life. I found and felt that theme to be quite consuming and beautiful and that's why I got to love this book too. Note that Beta picks up where Alpha ended so it's recommended that you read it first.

This book brings back Kyrie and Roth and their insatiable love and fire like never before. Their chemistry is in sync more that ever and their future only looks more promising with every passing day as they travel the world. That's until Roth's past comes back and hits them with such force that it shatters absolutely everything in their way forcing them to fight or die.

"The wind whistling through the shattered back window was evidence enough that this was no joke and that each choice I made from this moment on would determine whether I lived or died."

This is where the suspense starts and things get more and more intense. So intense that I felt heart-wrenching and gut-twisting emotions. Yes, these two characters endure some of the worst hardships which made me want scream, cry, and hide. But as tough as their situations felt like I couldn't stop reading because I was addicted to the suspense and the drama and I needed to know what was going to happen next.

"I felt nothing. All emotions, all senses were switched off, shoved down, and I tried to pretend I was in a movie, that this was all pretend, but I couldn’t. Not totally. I had a gun, too, but I didn’t dare draw it. Couldn’t, wouldn’t, not unless I was ready to shoot and kill, and I knew I wasn’t."

When things settle for a little bit, Kyrie and Roth are left picking up the pieces after the destruction they just lived through but it's not easy to mend two utterly broken hearts. There's so much guilt, shame, and raw pain between them that their love becomes really fragile. This is the part of the story I found it the most heartbreaking because since I've known these characters they've always been strong and relentless so it was tough to see them in such deep struggles. Fortunately, there would never be a Jasinda's book if there wasn't hope to come to the rescue and Beta wasn't the exception. So in the mist of their torment, Kryie and Roth find strength in their intense love for each other.

"God, the touch of her lips, the soft heat of her flesh against mine, her presence, calm and comforting, the love and the hope and the determination exuding from her…I soaked all this up and let it spread like a healing salve over the wounds within me."

Then the suspense continues and it takes more unexpected twists that kept me on the edge the entire time. There was more action, bravery, and fear and all with the purpose to defend each other and to fight evil not only with justice but with vengeance. This is where a lot of the strength of this book comes from, I think. The fact that these characters are in no way victims, they're fighters all the way to the end so you'll see them put everything on the line to protect each other. I loved that about them, such a powerful and remarkable love they share that gives them all the motivation and courage to continue on.

"We both needed to know, regardless of the hell we’d endured, regardless of what was still coming, that Kyrie was mine, and I was hers, and we would have each other and be okay."

This book starts with suspense so it ends in suspense. Things are not completely resolved by the end but things do get contained so Kyrie and Roth are left feeling content and ready for what lies ahead. Because as long as they have one another they'll be happy and nothing will ever break them apart.

“As long as I know you love me, and that you want me, and that you don’t—that you don’t…regret…us, I’ll be okay. We’ll be okay somehow. One day at a time."

Just another fantastic book by Jasinda! This action packed, super hot, and suspense infused story is a read that should not be missed by all lovers of Alpha. And if you haven't read Alpha and you love a good a story with exquisite hot passion and intense mystery, well, that's your book! This series will leave you wanting more of this strong-sexy-consuming couple with every book for sure.

“Is love enough?”   
“It has to be,” I said. “It has to be."
