All Noelle Cunningham has ever wanted is a life beyond - beyond the walls of Eden, where only the righteous are allowed to remain, and beyond her stiflingly restrictive existence as a councilman's daughter. But only ruins lie outside the City, remnants of a society destroyed by solar storms decades earlier.
The sectors surrounding Eden house the corrupt, the criminal-men like Jasper McCray, bootlegger and cage fighter. Jas clawed his way up from nothing to stand at the right hand of Sector Four's ruthless leader, and he'll defend the O'Kane gang with his life. But no fight ever prepared him for the exiled City girl who falls at his feet.
Her innocence is undeniable, but so is their intense sexual attraction, and soon they're crossing every boundary Noelle barely knew she had. But if she wants to belong to Jas, first she'll have to open herself to the gang, and to a world where passion is power, and freedom is found in submission.

"This won't just make my list for one of the best erotic books I've read this year, but it's also one of my favorite overall romance books of 2012." (Smexybooks)
This is not bad, the sex scenes are hot, and there are a lot of them, it tasted a little like a very...very naughty Hunger Games. It did not really grab me and take hold like some stories do, but all in all it was ok. If you are looking for a naughty listen, you coulddo mch worse.
Would I listen to Beyond Shams again? YES YES Y ES and in fact I did...OMG this is HOT!!!
I liked the fact that this is really a story and not just sex. But man oh man were the sex scenes amazing.
Lucy Malone is amazing...She pulls you in..Each character is unique and you know it...She makes you feel everything with her story telling and allows the words to breathe...
Ashamed of nothing!!!
WHERE IS THE REST OF THIS SERIES...This is only the 1st book of the series and I am on pins and needs for the other 7 to get here!!! Come on AUDIBLE....
I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and/or listening to mostly paranormal and fantasy.
I really enjoyed this book, both to read and listen. I just love Jasper. He is just such a great guy. He is the tough guy who is one of the enforcers for the O'Kanes. Dallas O'Kane is the leader of the O'Kanes and runs Sector Four. I love the idea of the full forearm tattoos of all the gang members. Noelle is very sweet. I love the dynamic between her and Jasper. She is also great with Lex. Lex is a great character. She is very tough and independent.
The sex is hot, the characters are amazing. I really love this world. I read this in less than 24 hours. It is quite a page turner, I highly recommend it.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
This is the kind of erotica I like. Great smexing with great story line throw in. I loved it. Yes this is erotica not romantic novel... Let me say this again... Erotica not romantic novel; however, that being said... this is sooo good that you forget that it's erotica because the story is great. It is set in a post apocalyptic time when the world is separated into the clean techno Eden and ruff and gruff gang style like sectors. The daughter of one of the Eden leaders get thrown out into the sectors for liking smex and ends up in one the toughest sector gangs. Like I said, yes there is great smex scene and plenty of them however, there is just enough and not enough to make sure there is a great story. I loved it.
Narration was great too. Malone did a great job.
A good credit for those romantic novel lovers and a good buy for those erotica lovers.
Beyond Shame......... What a read! It took some time to get into but once your in, your hooked. Fantastic detail from the author that leaves your imagination running wild! This was a fab read, full of passion and danger. After reading the latest of fifty shades/bared to you - this book opened my mind to different types of lust, passion and feelings.
The story of Beyond Shame allows you to take a step outside of normality, the set up of districts and dealings is exciting and leaves you curious - for more! The innocence of characters, the experience of others and mixed with violence and reality - fantastic.
It took me a while to get used to Lucy Malone, this may be as it was my first audible book and i was adapting to a new way of ''reading''. I found this altered my imagination to start. However, Lucy Malone communicates clearly and keeps you interested.
I loved this book! Despite not being able to relate to surroundings and circumstances like other reads this book is delightful. Noel, Lex and Jas cause a mix of feelings to begin as you grow to accept their lifestyle and needs - Highly recommended!
This was my first Audible book and now Im hooked! It's so easy to put your headphones on and get lost in a world of imagination. Strongly recommended.
"Should be on you reading list must be read"
This book just captivates you from the start.
It's full of sexy man and tatoos that I just want in my bed.
This book came I to me dreams and some yummy dreams at that.
The storey is about a young girl who is looking for more to life and it is how her new found friends introduce what she is thirsty for.
How she falls in love with jasper and becomes part of the okaine family.
I'm addictid to these book and just want to listen and read them all the time
Book to is beyond control and is out to buy now too!
So stop reading these reviews to help you decide and go and listen to them or read beyond shame.
"HOT, HOT, HOT and then some!!!"
Man oh man..... This book was HOT, HOT, HOT..... What a guy Jas is, lucky Noelle!!
Characters are fab - totally alpha males, strong sassy females and loads of action!!
Noelle was a quiet girl who had been stifled living in Eden. Jas is a rough, tough hard living man who has seen a lot during his life in the sectors.
We are introduced to the O'Kane gang and their 'King' Dallas. Although a gang, this group of people very much stick together and have each other's backs... They have a real family vibe and a healthy respect for each other.
The gang are very sexual and are all very open and comfortable with the life they lead. Through the story there are some smokin' hot encounters!! Surprisingly, given the hard, down & dirty living they do, there is a moral code that all members of the gang buy into and no-one is forced to take part in anything they don't want to!!
The story has action, passion, romance and some violence.
There's cage fighting, tattoos a plenty and a journey of self discovery - it's great watching Noelle evolve from the sheltered Eden girl to a fully engage free-thinking O'Kane.....
Looking forward to the reading Lex & Dallas's story, as well as the rest of the books in the series - have read the teaser 1st chapter to 'Beyond Control' and I'm betting this is gonna be another cracker of a book!!!
I'm sure loads more cold showers will be required... ;D
