Beyond Shame was just alright for me. Beyond Control was a bit better than alright. Beyond Pain has now brought this series to my attention leaving me wanting more! Each book so far has focused on a different couple and things have been tied up nicely in the end not leaving any cliffhangers, but holy hell I want some Ace, Cruz, and Rachel right now! Waiting until Spring 2014 for the next book in the series is going to be rough.
