Beyond Temptation & Beyond Jealousy
by Kit Rocha

Doubling your pleasure, Ana and Chelsea start this episode with a discussion of Beyond Temptation, Emma & Noah’s worldbuilding-heavy novella about painful & dangerous secrets, before getting down and dirty with our favorite triad, Ace, Cruz & Rachel in Beyond Jealousy.

Beyond hot-showers & self-sabotage, Ana & Chelsea deep-dive into Ace, Rachel and Cruz’s relationship dynamics, discussing what went wrong, and why we so love this story of learning to let people love you when you feel unworthy or unlovable. Also discussed are all the parents present or absent in Beyond Jealousy from Maddox’s ghostly mother, Ace’s late mother, Cruz’s distant mother to Rachel all too-present meddling father, Liam Riley and how it all connects to the radically different family the O’Kanes are building in Sector Four.

Ana shares how much she loves the variety and complex depictions of Latinx identity in the series and Chelsea expands on why she thinks these two books are a turning point in the series. Chelsea & Ana also discuss learning the difference between mfm and mmf and how that can make all the difference in whether a story works for them or not.
